CHILDREN’S BOOKWORM AWARD

In America, Even a Cat Can Have a Dream

SCHMALTZY:THE PIANO VIRTUOSO

This is a true story. Schmaltzy is a city cat living in an urban jungle. He is a devoted study buddy who wraps himself around the schoolbooks of students when they do their homework. Schmaltzy’s study tip is: “Always Look Before You Leap.”

Schmaltzy discovers his own unique talent and decides to make his American dream come true. Schmaltzy’s musical talent does not go unrecognized. Everyone in the world wants to see, Schmaltzy, play his piano: Japan, United States, Canada, India, Australia, United Kingdom, China, Africa, Israel, Switzerland, and France. Schmaltzy’s piano concerts are featured on YouTube.

Schmaltzy inspires children to put love into everything they do: There Is No Such Thing As Too Much Love.

Children learn new vocabulary with color-coded words. There are fabulous four-color photographs of the world class piano virtuoso, Schmaltzy, and his glamorous girlfriend, the long-haired Exotic Falafel that will have children as well as adults “oooohing and “aaaahing.”

Schmaltzy is Winner of the 2008 Most Eligible Pet Contest (the stand-alone cat in a group of top dogs) - The New York Post

    This Children's Book Keeps its Promise to Entertain and Educate

    My kids love the stories and learn new vocabulary words at the same time.

    Kids world rather learn from Schmaltzy, than from a parent or teacher.

    Second Impression: Schmaltzy is the most talented cat your will ever see in your lifetime. He entertains friends and family with classical music concerts.


    Third Impression: Schmaltzy is the most hardworking cat on the planet. He manages an office. He meets and greets students as a study buddy. He wraps his tail around their schoolbooks and keeps them company when they do their homework.


    Fourth Impression: Because of all of the above, he was able to attract the most beautiful long-haired Exotic named Falafel. She was featured in a Garfield commercial and is a world class soccer player.

    This books entertains and educates. There are 25 chapters and each chapter starts with a list of new vocabulary words. Schmaltzy's study tip is: "Always Look Before You Leap."

    The books inspires children to put love into everything that they do.

    Parents will never have to fight with their children to practice their music lessons. Practice makes Purrfect.

    I Love this Super Smart Children's Book

    The author is a world renown poet and my kids read her poems in school.

    This book places the new vocabulary words in front of the chapter and then color codes the words in the chapter. This technique helps kids learn.

    Spam?

    The other books for which reviews were written by the other reviewer have all been sent to me as spam messages. I can only assume this book is part of the same spam, but my spam filter caught this one.
