    wayne.jpg What are readers saying about The Deer with thew Purple Nose? DeerCover.jpg
       

    PortsmouthReviewLogo.jpg     " This is a really cool collection of nature photographs designed to teach children cleverly disguised as a fun mystery book. The photos are gorgeous, really stunning. Each animal is identified (lots of different birds) and given a voice as a character in the story. The forest critters led by a pair of sleuthing dogs try to figure out how and why a deer's nose has turned purple. The end of the book provides encyclopedic entries on each creature which is great for kids. My kids loved it!"

        "An opportunity to join in on the sleuthing to find out how Dottie got her purple nose is a "fun" component to this story. Beautiful pictures of birds and other critters eating at feeders give many children an introductory peek at a variety of birds, some of which may even be found near or around the children's homes. In addition to the beautiful pictures, the book provides a glossary containing a detailed description of food choices as well as the location where these birds can be found. Many ideas for activities involved with learning come to mind, ie; 1. Map location of birds. 2. List of various foods. 3. Compare seeds vs berries. And 4. Who eventually solved the mystery? To list just a few. A great source for school use as well as for home schooled children." Marlene H. Retired reading teacher


        "This is such a fun and engaging tale for kids. I have always been a fan of children's books that use actual photos. I believe they give young readers a better understanding of the world around them. The pictures in The Deer with the Purple Nose are beautifully done and I found them visual stimulating. The mysterious plot will appeal to children and parents alike as they follow the forest animals in search of hidden clues.
    I highly recommend picking up a copy." S.T.



        "When I heard about this book full of photographs that's a mystery I was definitely intrigued. And now having read it, I still find it a remarkably clever idea. First off, the photographs are beautiful and arranged in a way to tell the story. It's amazing the way the author/photographer managed to take photographs that work so well." H.G.

        "The Deer with the Purple Nose blends wonderful photography with a heartwarming story of 2 dogs trying to solve the mystery of a deer that somehow ended up with a purple nose. The photos of the various woodland friends the dogs "talk" to are outstanding and the surprise ending is superb. My grandchildren love hearing the story whenever they visit!! " M.T.
