Way Back Wednesday ~ Wind in the Willows – Kenneth Grahame

This review was originally posted August 31, 2011.

Wind in the Willows is a HUGE favorite at our home!  This classic tale is filled with adventure and animals that behave like human beings. Grahame’s descriptive detail helps the reader “see” Mole, Water Rat, Badger, and Toad as well as appreciate their unique personalities and ultimately the friendship they share with one another.

As is often the case with classic tales, although enjoyed by children, this book is also loved by adults.  It truly is a great story that is a delight to read.

Keeper of the Lost Cities – Shannon Messenger

Today, our little lady is stepping in and doing a book review for the blog.

Keeper of the Lost Cities is a phenomenal book.  It is fast-paced and has lots of plot twists that make the storyline even more interesting.  You can also really relate to all of the characters and what they are feeling.  Also, it is a series so there are many more books of amazingness to enjoy!

A Small Book for the Anxious Heart – Edward T. Welch

This little book is packed with wisdom about getting one’s heart and mind in the right place when faced with fear and worry.  Each short daily reading concludes with meaningful questions.  Written from a Christian viewpoint, the text points the reader to God and the life changing impact of trusting in Him.

While this complimentary book was provided for review by New Growth Press, no other compensation was given.  All remarks are my personal and honest opinions.
