The Sid Series of Books for Children
Author: Yvonne Perry
ISBN 978-0982572207
52 full-color pages
Perfect Binding
Write On! Publishing, 2009

Reviewed by Katie Chalfont

The Sid Series is an adorable book with some really sweet pictures that help illustrate the twelve stories. The book is written for children ages 2 to 5, but older kids and parents will also like it because the stories teach a lesson and help folks understand some “grown up” topics such as recycling, talking to angels, finding the gifts within yourself, dealing with the death of the family pet, and accepting a new baby into the family. I like the way the author wrote herself into the story as Von-Von. She is the grandmother of a boy named Sidney who has a special gift of healing and a big understanding of spirit life. I’m recommending this book to my kid’s teachers to read to the class. My kids love the book. We hope Yvonne comes out with a coloring book for the series.

The book is available at as a printed book or as an e-book.
