Book Reviews

I have built some quiet time into our school day here and there for reading. I love this and I read as well. I want my children to love reading. An education never ends as long as there are books to be read!! So here are the books I have read lately and also books we have listened to on CD.

Stand Tall by Joan Bauer (audio cd with the kids)
Excellent book. Covers everything from pets to veterans. Perfect for the child who is taller than peers, or different in any way from their peers.

My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
This book is a very gripping book. It grips your heart and sends your emotions on a roller coaster ride. I loved it.

Something Blue by Emily Giffin
Contiunues the story of Something Borrowed and is a great story of how people can and do change. I loved it as well and can't wait to finish the series!!

A Can Of Peas by Traci DePree
AND THEN Dandelions in a Jelly Jar,
AND THEN Aprons on a Clothesline
This book I grabbed because the title was so goofy. It ends up being a Christian story that has two more in the series. I am on the third one now. It is such a nice story about farming and the little things God does to grow us in His grace. I really liked them all alot.

We are currently listening to The Hobbit J.R.R. Tolkien on CD.

I am also listening to The Power of Simple Prayer by Joyce Myer. It is great and I highly recommend it to anyone who struggles with their prayer life and also those who are legalistic about their prayer/Bible study life.

As you know, I love Emily Giffin books..Right now I am reading "The Shack," and so far, it has been amazing!

Reading is such a wonderful way to go places without ever leaving your home. My boys and I all love to read!
I'm glad that you and your girls are getting the time each day to curl up with some good books.:)

God Bless,
