Children's Books by Marsha Casper Cook

Today I want to share some of one of my favorite authors children's books, Marsha Casper Cook. I love her fictional romance stories and her children’s tales which are filled with fun and spunk.

Isabella Pimpinella's Magical Potion (Meet Isabella Pimpinella's Friends Book 1)

Age Level: 4 - 9 | Grade Level: P - 2
Isabella Pimpinella‘s Magical Potion is a fun imaginative read for the early reader as well as the more advanced. The true test of bravery begins with thirteen little girls and a cat named Bogart who have the time of their life at the greatest sleepover ever when they get the chance to make a magical potion and learn to believe in themselves. It’s not only fun and fast paced it’s magical. 

My Review

Isabella Pimpinella's Magical Potion (Meet Isabella Pimpinella's Friends Book 1) is an adorable children’s book by multi-talented Marsha Casper Cook. This story has a unique style that is sure to attract attention. Wish there were books like this while I was growing up. So clever and oh, so much fun. Young readers will adore this spunky little story. Loved the adventure and the great illustrations!

Age Level: 5 - 9 | Grade Level: P - 2
We all know children love candy and sometimes they eat too much. "Snack Attack” is a fun, creative look at nutrition that shows children eating well are a matter of making the right choices. Addison Apple loves chocolate candy, ice cream, cookies, cake and just about anything with a lot of sugar. His mother decided to see what would happen if she let Addison eat anything he liked. Addison thought it was a great idea. Snack Attack is a fun read and children of all ages can identify with Addison and love reading this book wondering how the story ends!

My Review

Addison Apple in ... Snack Attack

This story really has a larger message, even though it is told in a fun entertaining way. It is a great message to send out to children of all ages. It is a lesson we can all learn about eating more nutritious foods, not just for health but how you feel overall.

I love that this is written for a child’s point of view. Addison is a great character that is easy to identify with. This story was well written and is a lot of fun to read.

Age Level: 6 - 10 | Grade Level: 1 - 3
Addison is feeling lonely because he has just moved into a new neighborhood, and then he meets Emelina. At first, they have nothing in common and didn’t see eye to eye on anything. Addison likes to read and write stories inside, and Emelina likes to be outdoors, jogging, skating, and just about anything that keeps her active. She likes healthy food and Addison has a sweet tooth. A few weeks after they meet, they are surprised to find out that they both signed up for Jr. Detective School. They end up teaming up to solve their fist case — a classmate’s shoes have disappeared. With very little to go on, Emelina and Addison try to find the shoes. A friendship develops between the two of them when they solve the first of many cases. 

“No Clues, No Shoes is a delightful chapter book about friendship and teamwork. Emelina and AJ are the perfect detective duo. They enhance each other as they work together to solve the case. Author Marsha Cook does a wonderful job keeping the readers attention while teaching children how to problem solve as Emelina and AJ search for clues, interview suspects and put the pieces of the puzzle together to solve the case of the missing shoes.” — Award-winning Author VS Grenier.

No Clue No Shoes is a great kids’ book. Emelina Hewitt is one smart detective! She, her talking dog, Stanley, and her friend, Addison, unravel the missing shoe mystery in a flash. Marsha Cook’s book is equal to those on the best-seller list. — Fran Lewis, Book Reviewer, Author and Radio Talk Show Host on Blog Talk Radio 

My Review

"No Clues No Shoes" is a darling sweet story for third grade on up.

This mystery detective story is so cute and fun to read, even as an adult. It reminds me of my youth when I was reading the Hardy Boy mysteries. This is a fantastic book. This book is well written and easy to get lost into with positive life messages and lessons. I love books that hold of you and don’t let you go until the end. The only problem is by the end you are left wanting more!

Age Level: 3 - 8 | Grade Level: P - 2
The Busy Bus is a short collection of children’s poetry. It’s great for children of all ages and every poem is about a different subject. Several of the poems ease into a small but meaningful lesson in life. This book is light and airy and introduces children to some very funny characters such as Big Fat Priscilla The Cat, Perculiar Pete, Messy Bessy, Uncle Edward Pig and Isabella Pimpinella.

My Review

The Busy Bus - A Collection of Short Children's Poems is a poetry book filled with adorable insightful stories. They are so adorable and written with heart.

This is a creative book of poems that I believe most children can relate to. These poems are well-written and delightful. I would high recommend this book by Marsha Casper Cook.
