Readers’ Favorite gives WATCH FOR FALLING ROCK five stars!

Read the new FIVE STAR review at Readers’ Favorite for the children’s picture book WATCH FOR FALLING ROCK, written by Terri Branson and illustrated in color by Chet Taylor: “WATCH FOR FALLING ROCK by Terri Branson is a children’s book about a Native American warrior. According to legend, Falling Rock, the great warrior, could never be captured in battle and now, many years later, Falling Rock haunts Oklahoma. Falling Rock also seems to haunt young Butch, who sees Falling Rock wherever he goes — outside his window, at his grandparents’ house, in the yard, and at the pond. Falling Rock also causes some mischief with a spider’s web in the garden, and Butch does have to reprimand him a few times for his antics. The whole time Butch’s grandparents do not believe that Falling Rock is causing trouble, but Butch not only sees Falling Rock all day, he also hears the chanting and the drums as he falls asleep at night.  WATCH FOR FALLING ROCK includes illustrations that go along with nearly every scene, and Falling Rock is depicted as the colorful and cartoonish troublemaker that he is. I appreciated the creativity in the book, and mostly that it highlights the imagination of a child who sees things when the adults don’t. For this reason, I feel the book will appeal to children who understand that sometimes special things are for them only, and adults might not understand or see things the way they do. Author Terri Branson taps into the best part of being a child and seems to understand that a child can occasionally follow a story in their own minds, carrying a character with them through their daily routines. I recommend this book to children of reading age and feel it would be a nice addition to any children’s library.” | Read more about the book and find sales links…
