Book Review: Winterfrost by Michelle Houts

This will be the first of many Christmas/winter themes books I will be reading, both this month and probably for the rest of winter. I don't what it is about winter that makes me want to read books set in cold places. Anyway, I was drawn to this book both because of its cover and … Continue reading Book Review: Winterfrost by Michelle Houts

Book Review: City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

On the rare occasion I will read a Middle Grade book, and 9 out of 10 times, I will really enjoy it. With YA novels, the chances are usually as low as 3 out of 10, so it makes me wonder why I don't read more Middle Grade books. Anyway, I spotted this book a … Continue reading Book Review: City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

Book Review: The Original Adventures of Hank the Cowdog by John R. Erickson

I had a shorter picture book of it and I watched multiple movies, but never did I actually read the entire book. Since it’s relatively short, I added it to my list of books to read for … Continue reading Book Review: Heidi by Johanna Spyri

Book Review: My Secret Guide to Paris by Lisa Schroeder

This book was a complete impulse read. On occasion, I’ll browse through the children’s section in the library to see if any books grab my attention. And, to be honest, the one and only reason I picked up this book and decided to read it is because, well, Paris. The idea of a book taking … Continue reading Book Review: My Secret Guide to Paris by Lisa Schroeder

It is so important to give kids a love of books from a young age, indoctrinating them into the cult of literature.
