Review: My Friend Paris Book Set

When I first heard about the My Friend Paris book series written by a young author. I did not know what to expect. I had two questions. Would I enjoy reading them to my grandchildren? Would the stories be entertaining enough for preschoolers?
First a little about this young author. She started writing and having her books published when she was eleven. She writes about her twin sisters, trips her family takes and places she visits. She is now fourteen and has more books in the works.
I received two books from her travel series for this review. Paris Goes To Lake Tahoe by Paris Morris and Paris Goes To San Francisco by Liberty Morris.

I am very impressed with both books. The stories are written in an easy to follow manner. I read Paris Goes To San Francisco to Pooh Bear.

I was worried it would not keep his attention for long. I was completely mistaken. Pooh Bear love the illustrations and stopped me several times to ask about some of the landmark illustrations in the book. He was fascinated with the illustration of Pier 39 and the sea lions.

We read Paris Goes To Lake Tahoe for Pooh Bears bedtime story. He was equally entertained by the story and illustrations. We have had the books for over a week now and Pooh Bear has asked me to read them several times. He has even sat down and looked over the books talking about the pictures and pretend reading to him self. The books are a big hit for myself and Pooh Bear. I will be sharing them with Pumpkin who will be starting kindergarten in the fall. I am fairly certain that Pumpkin will enjoy reading the My Friend Paris Books. We may be purchasing the rest of the set in the near future.
For more information and a list of all the books written by this author visit My Friend Paris.
Be on the look out for a giveaway of the above books coming soon.

I received the books mentioned above for review purposes. No monetary compensation was received for this review. The opinions expressed are my own.  


  1. That is neat, Bonnie... That little gal must be quite talented to be writing and selling books at such a young age... Awesome!!!! Glad you liked her books.


  2. These books look so neat! And wow to start writing at that age. Amazing!!

  3. I love that the author is so young she has a bright future ahead of her. Awesome review!

  4. How cool. Maybe she's the next Harry Potter type. The books look really cute!

  5. Can't wait for the giveaway. My Grandson loves, loves books. Books of any kind.

  6. I can't imagine anyone writing books at age 14, much less starting at age 11. That is so amazing and fascinating. What a terrific mind. That is fantastic, the books are super cute.

  7. These look great! My oldest actually went to SF with me when I ran the marathon there - but he was only 8 months old and doesn't remember.

    I kind of thought I already followed your blog, but I refollowed just in case! :-)

  8. Wow, that is awesome for her to have started writing when she was so young.
