The Second Adventures of Thelma Thistle and Her Friends
Joyce Crawford, Nov 26, 2018 - 50 pages
Like most crows, Cory is very intelligent and self-confident, which causes great conflict for Thelma Thistle.
Adam Mouse is meek and trusting and adds his own qualities to the friends. These qualities will be even more evident in following books.
Thelma does not take such an active part in this adventure; after all, she cannot walk.
This story addresses the emotions of fear, mistrust, disgust, jealousy, courtesy and embarrassment, just to name a few.
The story also introduces children to where forest animals live. Mother Rabbit dug a burrow and lined it with her own soft fur and other materials she found in the forest. Beetle's mom and dad found a fallen tree and made a comfy nest in the decaying vegetation and fungus. Both Beetle and Bunny are safe and loved in their burrow and fallen log.
Cory Crow finds happiness and purpose in his new home with new friends. He decides he is going to like it here. Of course, this will lead to many new and exciting adventures and learning opportunities.
The other new character introduced in this book is Adam Mouse. Adam is meek and trusting and brings his own special skills to this and following books.
It is the author's hope that these books entertain, educate and make children laugh and learn.
