Sad and moving.

All the Ugly and Wonderful Things: A Novel - Bryn Greenwood

I understand all the controversy regarding this, but I don't agree. I think this was a hard look at mistakes made by a family, court system, and community. I have seen some people think the book is glorifying pedophilia, and again I disagree. I think Kellen in the book was mildly mentally handicapped, like around 14 mentally, in a man's body. I do think it should be required reading for anyone getting a degree in social work because it helps the reader to see things from the mindset of a child growing up in severe dyfunction. 

Great book!

For Minecraft fans

Minecraft: Diary of a Minecraft Alex Book 2: Enderman (An Unofficial Minecraft Diary Book) - Diary Wimpy Series, Noob Steve Paperback, Steve Mc Queen, Diary of a Wimpy Steve Books, Alex MC Donough

Another book written by M.C. Steve for kids who happen to be  Minecraft  fans. Alex and Steve notice that mysterious things are being taken, moved, or just appear in the land. They believe it is the highly dangerous Enderman. After the gifted emerald stone disappears from the villagers' church, Alex goes on a hunt to try to track down the Enderman and retrieve the emerald. I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you M. C. Steve. 

 

Disappointed in this series.

Return To Earth (The Galaxy Series #2) - Skyler Darshini Freimann, Saligrama K Aithal, An Indian

I was asked to read this by the author, and book #1 had such promise, but this one, I felt was very divisive, and many might be offended by the various implications in the book.

 

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

New Concise Book Summing up History

Watersheds of World History - John  L. Taylor

I had a few issues with this book, but most of that was within the realms of faiths, and that can't really be debated since it is what one person believes as opposed to another. Other than that, I think this book did remarkably well on trying to consolidate the major points in world history. I thought it was interesting; I learned some things I was not aware of before,

and I thought the book flowed nicely from era to era. Mr. Taylor also encouraged the student to do further research on the internet, which makes this book versatile, since new things are always being discovered, so as time goes on the book will still be useful. He also had some nice touches with the inclusion of historically significant pieces of literature, music and art that the student can pursue to deepen their research. I went through this book chapter by chapter with the author, and must say, he was incredibly patient in explaining his views and beliefs. I received this book from the author in return for an honest review. Thank you Mr. Taylor for sharing this with me. : )

The Little House - A Caldecott Award Book

The Little House - A Caldecott Award Book - Virginia Lee Burton I just loved this book. The little house was sad to see things change around her, but it had a happy ending.

The Berenstain Bears Learn To Share

The Berenstain Bears Learn To Share - Stan Berenstain, Jan Berenstain Rhyming book about sharing, and how it is o.k. to want to play alone sometimes too.

Farm Friends

Farm Friends - Pat Sustendal This is a book made from fabric which is quite handy for little ones. I have had it for years. It went through my children, countless washings, and now my grandchildren enjoy it. It is a very simple book for toddlers, with Bert, Ernie, and Grover on a farm taking care of farm animals.

Daniel's Pushbike

Daniel's Pushbike - I. B. Gumnut Cute book about a boy who actually pedals his bike, on a contraption powered by pedal power, to visit his dad on an island in the ocean. I want one of these, lol! I cannot imagine how many double takes a person would garner pedaling their bike across nearby Bass Lake! hahaha

I won this book in a giveaway. My thanks to the author and the publisher.

I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

I Can Read With My Eyes Shut! - Dr. Seuss Another goodie by Dr. Seuss. I have not yet mastered that skill-- I would like to see it done though! : )
