By Nanahood: Lilly the Lash - A Character Building Book Series What if there were a character-building series of books for children that encouraged children to think ahead to the consequences of their actions? That's exactly what The Life and Times of Lilly the Lash book series does. In addition, the series also has lesson plans for teachers and therapists, a motivational board game, and craft activities designed to help learning. All of these can be downloaded for free here. My favorite way of testing children books to see if they meet the grandkid approved standard is to read them to my own grandchildren. The first one we read was The Kacklin' Kitchen. This is book four of the series and in this story Lilly the Lash tackles the concepts of bullying and teaches the value of respect. With a kitchen as the setting and baking ingredients as characters, Lilly uses a cream cake to help the milk carton (the bully) comprehend a better way of behavior. My granddaughter's favorite character in the book (other than Lilly the Lash) was the broom. Jungle Jive is the fifth of the series. The topic of greed is tackled and Lilly (who is only ever seen by the reader) sends a gentle bear to provide guidance and restore balance to their town. This is the book my two year old grandson liked the best. He loves monkeys! I think I know why he identifies with them, he's such a little monkey himself. The illustrations and rhyming verse are fun but at the same time, full of meaning. Lilly the Lash is only seen by the reader, but she's pictured throughout the book and reminds me of a delightful looking fairy with an eyelash on her back instead of wings. All the images are fun-loving and colorful with an eye for detail. They are so real looking you almost think they are going to walk off the page! About the Author: Julie Woik is a talented writer and poet originally from Wisconsin, who has lived in Sarasota, Florida for the last 32 years. There are more Lilly the Lash books in the works and Julie invites you to visit her awesome web site and check out all 5 books, the board game, lesson plans and other activities available there. You can order her books there and she will even autograph them for you for free! Oh, and one more thing you will love about these books, a percentage of sales go to a different cause with each book. For example, Jungle Jive supports the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. --NanaHood

The Life and Times of Lilly the Lash is a picture book series that focuses on important life lessons and building self-esteem. The series stars a unique fairy known as Lilly the Lash. You're probably wondering who Lilly could be? Such an odd looking fairy, to land in a tree. She once was an eyelash, who lived on my face. Who guided my soul with her goodness and grace. In The Garden Gathering, the first book in the series, Lilly the Lash can be found helping a giant sunflower accept her size and find self-worth. Lilly the Lash recruits a teeny soccer-playing spider to help show readers that we all have strengths despite our sizes and differences. The story ends with a page of fun facts from the garden, which makes this both an inspiring and educational book for nature lovers and any child needing a boost in self-respect and self-confidence. The Kacklin' Kitchen is the fourth book in the series. When Lilly encounters an insecure milk carton in charming Cobblestone Cove, she devises a plan to restore the balance of giving and receiving respect. The book is filled with amusing characters, like Chubby Cheddar and Bubba the Bread. It provides an easily digestible lesson on reverence that the author attentively dishes out plus, there are plenty of fun facts to be found in the end pages of this book, too.

By The Midwest Book Review The Life and Times of Lilly the Lash: The Garden Gathering is the first volume of a special children's series that helps form character, including developing a sense of self worth, plus values like sharing, honesty, respect for others, and balance. So far there are 5 volumes published in a series of 15 books designed to appeal to children ages 0-10 years (or even to 110!). In The Garden Gathering, Lilly's past is described in the following passage of narrative verse: You're probably wondering who Lilly could be? Such an odd looking fairy, to land in a tree. She once was an eyelash, who lived on my face. Who guided my soul with her goodness and grace. Glistening like stardust you'd find in a dream, she gave me the strength to build strong self-esteem. Teaching me morals on life and its flow, with each of her lessons, my spirit would grow. Fantastic, enchanting, shadowed illustrations trace the descent of Lilly and lightly trace the sleeping girl whose eyelash Lilly once was. Lilly's mission in The Garden Gathering is to seek out two special friends: Sunny the sunflower, who wished to be small, and Arnie the spider, who wished to be large, and to teach them a new way to see themselves. The creative, vivacious author's narrative style is perfectly enhanced with the dramatic, expressive color illustrations. In the end, Lilly teaches her lesson to Sunny and Arnie with a sprinkling of magic stardust, like fresh fallen snow; leading them to learn to love and appreciate themselves as they are. Sunny looked up and cried out to the stars, 'Why can't we like ourselves, just as we are?' Sunny now realized how foolish she'd been. Not allowing herself that great love from within. More great truths unfolding make The Garden Gathering a promising, magical book for children, which also comes with free educational activities and crafts plus fun facts relating to each book. Finally, a portion of each book's profits is donated to a chosen worthy cause, to help make our world a better place. Children will love, enjoy, and benefit from this creative, health-inspiring new series.
