Library Time 20

 
This week I downloaded a book that a friend of mine wrote - The Adventures of Little Angel. It's a sweet children's book about a little angel and what she does in Heaven and her favourite story about Jesus dying on the cross for our sins. There's another one as well that I plan on getting. There are plans for more to be written. I like getting books on my Kindle for my children. This one will no doubt become a favourite.
 
I read a sweet story this week called - A Good and Perfect Gift - about Penny, a little girl born with Down Syndrome. Her mom has written an interesting story about grief and love, hope and despair. Penny's parents expected her to be perfect. In the end, they discovered she was. They wouldn't change a single thing about her.
 
So what else have we been reading?
 
15-year-old daughter - Johnny Tremaine by Esther Forbes - Historical Fiction at its finest telling about the events leading up to the Revolutionary War in the United States.

13-year-old son - King Ottokars Sceptre (Tintin) by Herge

11-year-old son - Fugitive From Corinth by Caroline Lewis - A mystery from Roman times

10-year-old daughter - Roman Mysteries by Caroline Lewish - What can I say? They're a big item in our house this week.

8-year-old daughter - The Cupcake Club by Sheryl Berk. This is a book about a club for girls who also make cupcakes.

6-year-old son - Horton Hatches an Egg by Dr. Seuss

3-year-old son - He's been asking for and looking at Richard Scarry books.

Someone had a birthday this week. Which child was it? ☺

  1. Jennifer, what a sweet review of The Adventures of Little Angel! I am pleased it is already a favorite in your household and hope you like The Performance as well! I had hoped to have the other books written already but I was deathly ill last year so the rest of the series got put on hold, but please keep an eye out for new books coming this year! Hint: We are introducing a new character of the 4 legged kind (*wink*).
    God Bless and again, thank you for your review.
