Happy Memorial Day!
Comparison Girl – Shannon Popkin
Comparison Girl provides a guide for a seven week Bible Study focusing on resisting comparison and judgment. The conversational tone of the text coupled with the easy to navigate lessons make this text a great guide for individual or small group study.
While this complimentary book was provided for review by Kregel Publications, no other compensation was given. All remarks are my personal and honest opinions.

The Hiding Place – Corrie ten Boom
The Hiding Place is an amazing book that chronicles the ten Boom Family’s work with the underground saving Jewish families from the Nazis during World War II by hiding them in their home. Ultimately, the family is arrested and the second half of the book shares daughter Corrie’s experiences in confinement including her time in concentration camps. She recounts how she survived and shares a powerful message of courage, faith, and hope.
Biography & Autobiography
Plant a Kiss – Amy Krouse Rosenthal
Plant a Kiss is an uplifting story about generously sharing your gifts. The text is deceptively simple for a book with such a meaningful message, and the pictures are a delightful addition to the text. This book could be easily used for a meaningful read-aloud with learners of all ages.

Water Princess – Susan Verde
The Water Princess presents the childhood experience of Georgie Badiel in Burkina Faso. This book combines lyrical story telling with beautiful illustrations. It would be a great literary element to include in a study of water and the scarcity of this precious natural resource throughout many areas in the world.
North! Or Be Eaten! – Andrew Peterson
The second book of The Wingfeather Saga is a winner! Filled with more irony and even more plot twists, North! Or Be Eaten! is a suspenseful read that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end. As soon as she finished this book, our middle school age daughter was ready to start reading the third book in the series!
