Review of “When Matilda Made Time Stand Still”

Standard

Cindy Ladage has written a delightful children’s picture book, “When Matilda Made Time Stand Still.” When Matilda wants to continue to play and her mother tries to get her to go for a nap, Matilda inadvertently breaks her mother’s watch and time stands still. The little girl is happy to continue with her tea party and playing with her dolls until she herself becomes sleepy and worries that she doesn’t know how to get time to start again. Finally, she falls asleep. I won’t tell you the end, you’ll have to read this story. But I will tell you it ends happily.

Ladage’s book is illustrated by photographs, providing a sense of realism to the story. It is for children and adults alike who often wish time would stop so we could continue doing what we like to do and makes a good bedtime story.

Her book is recently published by Oak Tree Press as part of their Acorn editions for children. As an Oak Tree Press children’s author, I highly recommend this story for young children. Beryl Reichenberg author​

About berylreichenberg

I am a storyteller. Writing and illustrating books for children, I have published over 35 titles. Three of my books, "Ants on a Log", "Camouflage", and "The Mysterious Case of the Missing Birthday Cake" have been published by a traditional publisher, Oak Tree Press. These are available from Oak Tree and Amazon as well as other outlets. The others are published by Blurb.com and can be seen on their website. Some of my stories are in prose and some in verse. All are designed for small children and young school children. My fiction stories are designed to delight these children and help them learn about themselves and the world around them. I also have a number of nonfiction books about animals, the natural world, and other cultures. I illustrate my stories with drawings and photographs. I hold a Master's Degree from UCLA and have taught school in California. I hope that young children and their adult companions will enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.
