Best wishes for a wonderful holiday with family and friends!
I will be enjoying this week with my family. My next new post will be on December 1st.
I Have Seen God shares the inspirational story of medical missionaries Klaus-Dieter and Martina John. Their account of building a state of the art health care facility in the Peruvian Andes, in order to care for the poverty stricken families that live in this area, is an amazing display of the miracles that God continues to perform today. This is truly an inspiring book.
While this complimentary book was provided for review by LitFuse Publicity Group, no other compensation was given. All remarks are my personal and honest opinions.
Gaston is a cute story which features two darling dog families and focuses on being happy with yourself and your surroundings. This book would make a terrific read aloud as well as a great discussion starter.
The Tales from Dimwood Forest series has truly delighted our daughter. They are stories of adventure and suspense which feature woodland creatures. Poppy is a sweet and kind little deer mouse who exhibits determination which inspires young readers. A great series that has quickly become a favorite.
Little Elliot lives in a big city and often thinks that life would be better if he were just a bit bigger. After some struggles, he discovers that all he really needs is a good friend who he finds in the most unlikely of places.
This is a darling book that would make a great read aloud. We loved it!
Rupert Can Dance is a fun story about a little girl who loves to dance. To her surprise, her cat Rupert loves to dance too. She discovers his dancing ways by chance, and Rupert is not pleased when Mandy attempts to give him lessons so he can improve his skills. Rupert is a cat, and he has no interest in being trained as if he is a dog. Mandy takes some time to develop a plan and ultimately is able to bring out the dancing fun in herself and Rupert.
Calvin the Bookworm Birdie is back! This time with the help of librarian Mrs. Readalot, he discovers that he needs glasses. At first the other starlings are not very kind about Calvin’s need to wear glasses, and Calvin retreats to the woods. Although he soon finds himself in trouble, he is able to use his book-smarts as well as his glasses to find a solution and transform the other starlings views regarding wearing glasses.
This is a very cute story. I especially liked the use of more sophisticated language within the book. Since Calvin is a bookworm, the language in these stories always displays his exposure to more sophisticated vocabulary.
