Another thumbs up from me for this instalment of storytelling, with worthwhile messages about the important things in life, from the Grumpy series of audiobooks. I really enjoy the narrator’s voice too.

I Love this series of books, it’s part of ‘A Grumpy the Iguana and Green Parrot Adventure’. This is the third one I’ve listened to. This latest book, ‘Grumpy goes Home for the Holidays’ is Adorable. This one Grumpy wants to go home for the holidays in the Florida Keys. He is unsure how he can make this happen. Luckily, he had his good friend, Green Parrot always willing to show kindness and help out. The book is excellent weaving this in as a way to act towards others. Another theme that is always present is the importance of saving the environment. It is part of the story and gives excellent suggestions on how to use nature and resources in a great way. So, this is an excellent book to read to young children. Also, would be good to have at pre-schools, libraries, and elementary schools. As an adult I love the series, but think most children definitely would, too. So, I highly recommend this sweet, but important book that has always has messages about helping, kindness, and saving the environment. Thank you NetGalley, Susan Chapman, and ListenUp Audio books for a copy of this book.

Looking for a sunny Christmas? 🌞🎅🏼 Grumpy Goes Home For The Holidays 🎧 By: @susanmarieauthor Illustrated By: Natalia Loseva Narrated By: Trevor Goble Publisher: ListenUp AudioBooks Download: @netgalley Thank you @netgalley and ListenUp AudioBooks for a copy of this audiobook. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This is a cute and short Christmas audiobook about the main character Grumpy, an iguana living in Miami. He prepares to visit his family in the Florida Keys. Grumpy’s animal friends help him with his preparations. The green parrot bought him a bus ticket. Mr. Squirrel gave Grumpy gifts to bring for his family. I like the setting of the audiobook because it moves away from the whole romanticized “white Christmas” and shows that Christmas is just as great in warmer climates. I also like the realistic steps that a person would need to take when visiting their family. A good moral that stood out to me is the importance of spending time with family over the holidays versus receiving gifts. Description Grumpy is going home for the Holidays and it is going to be a surprise. But wait! How is he going to get there (Florida Keys) and what gifts will he bring his mom, dad and little sis. This is a wonderful holiday story full of surprises and emotions. . . .

This is such a sweet book, it has excellent themes that you want your child to learn about. The importance of family time over gifts at Christmas, and how special time together can be. Thoughtfulness, Generosity, Kindness, I give it 5/5 stars. Narration was great, my 3yo asked to listen to it over and over.

A cute Christmas story that my 6-year old enjoyed. She is an animal lover and prefers animal characters. The fact that my daughter usually can't sit still but sat through this eight-minute audiobook indicates how much it caught her attention, and she would probably like the picture book. I like that it mentioned different creatures. It is the first book we read in this iguana and parrot series. I'm not sure how big a part the parrot usually plays, but in this story, it barely comes out. It can be read or listened to as a standalone. Netgalley gave me an audiobook copy, but I was not required to provide a good review. I thought the narrator was fun and fitting for children's books.

Oh my kiddo loved this! Grumpy's homecoming experience was heartwarming & we loved his reunion with his family for Christmas. The narration is perfect for bed time listening & evokes vivid imagination, Me & my son have heard it many times now & can't wait for the next instalment of Grumpy, the green parrot & squirrel.

This is a cute Christmas book in a great series for children. Grumpy is wanting to go home to Key West for Christmas. Thanks to the help of his friends and their kindness he is able to make his wish come true. This is series teaches children about environment concerns and helping others. It’s a great way to start conversations. Thank you NetGalley for the opportunity to review this book!

‘Grumpy goes home for the holidays’ is an extremely powerful book which focuses on sharing and caring. The author used Mr Grumpy beautifully to show how little things in life can truly make one happy. This story not only provided an insight on caring for your family but also reflects on sharing with friends to bring smiles. Therefore, this book is a perfect recipe for introducing the concepts of love and compassion to the kids.

It’s the time of year for the holidays, and I couldn’t resist this book. This was my first time trying a childrens book on audio. Let me say, I really enjoyed it. The narrator does great pacing, along with the perfect emotions. His voice kept me listening. I can’t wait to share this with my toddler, I know he’ll enjoy it as well. This is perfect for the season, along with the message that family matters more than gifts. Such a cute story with a great message. I’m looking forward to trying more of these books!

I received an advance reader copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review via netgalley and the publishers. ***AUDIO BOOK VERSION*** Grumpy Goes Home for the Holidays is another adorable addition to this lovely, heartwarming series for children. Each of the books I have reviewed in this series so far has been on audio so I cannot comment on the pictures inside,but the covers are always sweet. Grumpy decides he should go visit his family for the Christmas holidays. Mr Squirrel (Grumpys friend) helps him out with his gifts and Grumpy sets off on a long bus journey to visit his family. As always, it doesn't go quite to plan but love, family and friendship saves the day. I love listening to these short stories - they are all always so heartwarming.
