Book Review: Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak

This kid's book is a little weird and didn't really meet whatever expectations I had for it. Originally published 54 years ago in 1963, Sendak's story follows a rather badly behaved little boy named Max who, after another obnoxious episode, is sent to his room without supper (pretty harsh but hey). Max soon finds himself… Continue reading Book Review: Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak

Book Review: Oz The Great and Powerful by Elizabeth Rudnick

I'm a huge fan of L. Frank Baum's original Oz series. Maybe it has to do with the time in which they were written and published (during the early 1900s) or the fact that they were imagined, created, and put to paper by Baum himself. Oz is such a place filled with wonder, peace, joy,… Continue reading Book Review: Oz The Great and Powerful by Elizabeth Rudnick

Book Review: The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz by L. Frank Baum

Everyone knows the catchy "follow the yellow brick road" time that accompanied L. Frank Bain's classic chavaters in the 1939 movie. I grew up watching the timeless film (thankfully in color because it's so much more magical that way)and reading the first novel in a series of 14 (yes, Baum went on to write 13… Continue reading Book Review: The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz by L.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m not Irish (that I know of) but I’ve always thought the March 17th holiday was one full of fun activities like searching for ‘gold,’ wearing green to avoid being pinched, and, most importantly, learning more about Irish culture and traditions.

Book Review: When Jackie Saved Grand Central: The True Story Of Jacqueline Kennedy’s Fight For An American Icon by Natasha Wing; illustrated by Alexandra Boigrr

This has got to be one of my favorite books of 2017, so far! I love and will read anything (that's credible) on Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and this is one children's book that I had no problem paying full price (a little over $10.00 including tax) for.   When Jackie Saved Grand Central tells the… Continue reading Book Review: When Jackie Saved Grand Central: The True Story Of Jacqueline Kennedy’s Fight For An American Icon by Natasha Wing; illustrated by Alexandra Boigrr

Book Review: Anansi the Spider: A Tale From The Ashanti By Gerald McDermott

Check out the Goodreads synopsis, here! Growing up, I was fortunate enough to have parents and family read to me a variety of children's books that featured characters of different living situations, religions, skin colors, backgrounds, the whole nine. It was good to know there was SOME diversity during the 90s, though it does not… Continue reading Book Review: Anansi the Spider: A Tale From The Ashanti By Gerald McDermott

Book Review: The Giving Tree By Shel Silverstein

Everything of Shel Silverstein's that I've read so far I've loved, and The Giving Tree is no exception. I love how Silverstein always seems to be able to balance the reality of being an adult while also incorporating the wonder of imagination and life of being a kid. The Giving Tree honestly made me tear… Continue reading Book Review: The Giving Tree By Shel Silverstein
