Book reviews are a great way for self-publishing authors to gain exposure. After all, how can someone buy your book if he or she doesn’t know it exists? Paired with other elements of your book promotion strategy, requesting reviews is a great way to get people talking about what you’ve written.
When we read good reviews, we definitely like to share them. It gives the author a few (permanent) moments of fame and allows us to let the community know about a great book. Here’s this week’s book review:
by George R. Kuper AKA Uncle Pappy
Secrets of Christmas Revealed! This edition of Christmas Secrets is a first in a series of Christmas books. This book allows adults and children alike to enjoy discovering the secrets of the holiday season together. Many of the children’s questions about Santa Claus and the Christmas season are answered. The stories are interactive with prompts and questions to encourage children to think, analyze and become involved in the adventure

Adorable Throughout – Great for Interaction with KidsUncle Pappy has written GEM of a story – I read it first and smiled the whole way through, the illustrations make the magical aspects of the story seem very real! I was captivated and reminded of my childhood beliefs and fantasies of Christmas and all the goodness around it. Then, when my 8 year old niece visited I shared it with her, whereupon she took it from me so she could read it herself and gaze at the pictures, asking me a few questions… she is old enough to NOT believe in Santa and all but STILL seemed drawn by the miracles the story unfolds. For me, the book provided a rare bonding moment with my niece, sharing something wonderful together as this book and storyline. Smiling again.

Interactive Christmas Story Focused on Entertaining DiscussionI bought this book for my grandchildren. It teaches children the merits of reading and discussing what is read to them. The interaction is a delight and very memorable. The illustrations are bright and colorful, filled with excitement. Bottom line: This is a story that can really help toddlers learn the merits of reading a book. I highly recommend this book for anyone who appreciates the thought of teaching by reading with entertainment….and bringing toddlers into the story.
