Explore Ancient Indian Folklore

Colorful, interesting, and often hilarious folk stories adorn the pages of this book, which look almost like ancient Indian mosaics in their layout and design. You may notice as you read the stories some similarities to the folklore of other nations, and one of them I thought was reminiscent of...

A Tactile Introduction to Everyday Objects

This is a great book for babies and beginning readers. Each page reveals a different object that looks like Ellie may be hiding behind, but she is not found until the last page (of course). In the meantime, you can introduce your baby to everyday objects like flowers, and more...

This book is STUNNING.

I adored the unique style and writing in this book. It begins with telling the reader about how we all began as "stardust," according to science. Hey, maybe we're not all in agreement about that first statement, but everything that follows is backed up by science and has a flow...

Me too!

Ah! Another book illustrated by Patrice Barton. I LOVE her illustrations. And this old-but-new poem reinvents itself with her exuberant drawings of cute kids trying on and wearing and sporting all kinds of different old clothes. This is a great book to expose to kids to show them the value...

A Tribute to Upcycling (and a Heart-Check for Consumers)

Mr. King is a kitty cat who loves to get new stuff. Don't we all? But he's even worse than us Americans because once his things become 'the tiniest bit old,' he throws them into a pond. What follows is a pretty hilarious tale about how he ends up getting...

Uplifting for the Female Spirit

As a Christian for about 13 years, I've read my share of "women's books" on pleasing God, being beautiful, etc. etc. ad infinitum. Honestly, a lot of them fall short, and though they say a lot of things I think women want to hear, it's not always what we need...

Neat Drawings, but Lacking Story Development

Mario is a squirrel who prides himself on his "amazing" moves--but when his friend Isabelle is not impressed, and even easily imitates his favorite move, Mario is pretty miffed. But after a small attitude adjustment on Isabelle's part, and some compromise from Mario, together they learn each other's moves and...

A Compelling Glimpse into the World of Bullies

I seem to be very interested in books about “secrets” this year. This happens to be the third book I’ve read with the word “secret” in the title, and yet another that was a thrilling page-turner because of my insatiable desire to uncover the various secrets hidden by each of...

Oh my WOW.

Um. Wow. I literally cannot believe how good this book turned out to be. It was completely unexpected. At 448 pages, I definitely did not think it would take me ONE DAY to finish, but I could not stop. Even though I was exhausted and sick all weekend, I took...

A Siren Song of a Book

Guess what? I’m a total Amanda Hocking newbie. That’s right—I have not yet delved into her Trylle series, but their wide acclaim definitely upped the excitement for me as I began her newest book, Wake. The first in her new Watersong series, Wake centers around two sisters, Gemma and Harper,...

A Thrilling New Fantasy Series

Adarlan’s Assassin: a strong-willed, defiant, and indefatigable young woman who maintains a tender heart in the face of incredible hardship. Hey, I can dig that. And in spite of comparisons to The Hunger Games, I think readers will find this new heroine and her world have a pull all their...

A Weed that Thrives

This story takes place in the world of birds; particularly that of the eagles, of which Dandelion is the main character, a young "valley eaglet," which in the eagle kingdom, is a poor, peasant eagle of no importance. She ends up on Sword Mountain, living amongst the elite eagles, who...

I gotta say...the first few pages of this book, I was NOT buying it. Sure, dragons are almost always awesome, and the illustrations of the different species of dragons in Tui T. Sutherland's otherworldly (well, it should be since it IS another world) dragon kingdom piqued my interest, but when...

A Mystery that Holds the Attention

I jumped into this Victorian-era mystery like hot on a grill. Dora, the female main character on a mission to follow in the footsteps of Sherlock Holmes for a sleuthing-filled life, is easy to latch on to. She’s feisty, unhappy with the typical life expected of a female in her...

An Incredible Tale that Must be Told

I am going to take this opportunity to beg you to read this book. I am going to persuade you in whatever way I can to take the time out of your fiction-reading-repertoire to pick up a nonfiction book that will not have a necessarily happy ending, but should keep...
