Tricycle and Friends: True-Life Adventures of a Three-Legged Golden Retriever and His Rescued Farm Animal Friends by Lester Aradi



This wonderful children’s books is about a three legged retriever called Tricycle who is adopted by a family, and goes to live at their farm.

Once there, he meets Buckaroo, the miniature donkey. The two quickly become friends, and Buckaroo introduces Tricycle to some of the other animals. Many are adopted too. He soon discovers that there are all sorts, not only other dogs, but horses, llamas, chickens, and honey bees.

They go to meet Cantara and Pink, the llamas, and discover fascinating things about these lovely animals. However, the icing on the cake is when they learn that there will be another new arrival at the farm the following day, a little baby alpaca! Everyone is excited! But what is an alpaca, and what will it be called?

The author teaches in a very gentle way, through the experiences of Tricycle and his friends, how being different is okay. And, as the book progresses we learn about bullying, the importance of adopting animals, and many other things.

I loved the way the reader gets to meet lots of the animals through delightful illustrations and lovely pictures. I thing they are so important in children’s books, and bring the farm wonderfully to life, adding so much to this enchanting tale.

I can’t wait to read more adventures from Tricycles and his friends.



About the Book:

When Tricycle, a rescued, three-legged Golden Retriever arrives at his new home, he gets the attention of the other animals who live there. They want to know what happened to his fourth leg, and they wonder if it hurts and if it slows him down.

As Tricycle gets to know the other residents of the farm, he learns there are a lot of different creatures who have a wide range of abilities and interests. He enjoys meeting the other animals and loves the peaceful quality of his surroundings.

Based on a true story, Tricycle and Friends shares a story about a group of rescued animal friends and their real-life journey of serving as therapy animals for children with special needs. Through story and pictures, it addresses topics such as adoption, bullying, dealing with physical challenges, death of a companion, and friendship.

How I Became Vegetarian: Rational answers to Why Do People Become Vegetarian by Ioan Draniciar


Saying it as it is.

Having been a vegetarian before I decided that I would become one again and wanted a motivational book to help me sustain my convictions when challenged by others, and I certainly made the right choice with this one.

Having been an animal lover all my life I could no longer live with eating them. In this book the author has used a no holds barred approach, yes, it is shocking in places, but come on, everyone knows really what happens on the factory farms, and we just chose to turn a blind eye.

As the author points out, there are many wonderful fruit and vegetables out there and if you really want the ‘taste’ of meat, plenty of vegetarian versions of it. I have to say here that I cannot understand why you would go vegetarian and then want the taste of meat, but there you go, there is a market for the produce so it must be true.

Until today, I confess, I scrolled through all those animal cruelty postings we all see, turned a blind eye, well from now on, I at least will not be condoning this sort of cruelty. This book was just what I wanted and needed to change my diet for ever and REALLY call myself an animal lover. Three cheers for the author!

It’s been quite a thrill discovering exactly how ripe the internet marketing opportunity really is today by taking the dive and implementing all the strategies I’ve paid so dearly to learn.
I began to understand the fact that most successful entrepreneurs made more money and enjoyed more freedom when they started working smart and not hard.
I wanted to be able to earn my living on my own terms and hang out with like-minded individuals who want more out of life. That is why I embraced the Internet Marketing dream in the first place.
My objective is to develop and implement online and offline marketing campaigns that are effective, ethical and exhibit a positive ROI for me and my clients.
Over the last 5 years, I’ve been focused on doing and teaching 3 main business models:
1. Selling Products Online: Selling internet marketing courses as an affiliate and selling my own information products on specialized online platforms such as Warrior Forum and Digital Point Forum.

 About the book: This is my personal journey from meat eating to vegetarian life style. If you ever wonder why do people become vegetarians this is a good read for you.
If you keep an open mind, it will help you understand the reasons why people become vegetarian.
I’d like to think this little book will help you see things from a different perspective, something to reflect on.
All I want is to plant a little seed in your mind and nurture it with care so that would grow and expand to the point it can no longer be ignored. It happened to me and I want you to experience that as well.
We have been trained to think in a certain way since birth but we have the knowledge and power to start looking at things from various angles so we can choose what’s best for us and those around us.
Our ancestors didn’t have the knowledge and choices we have today. They did whatever they could in order to stay alive but we evolved and have no more such excuses.
Being vegetarian it’s not just about reaping the benefits of proper health and nutrition.
Vegetarian living is more about showing kindness and compassion to all our planetary companions. It’s about planning ahead by trying to save the resources of our planet through a green lifestyle.
This book will help you see what is like on the other side and welcome you with open arms if you ever decide to explore it.
