Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals by Temple Grandin and Catherine Johnson
Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals

Michelle Siegel, August 4, 2012

This fascinating book has a lot of insights into the higher picture of how behavior works in animals, and into the devilish details of dogs, cats, horses, cows, pigs, and chickens. It also covers zoos and wildlife more generally though with specific anecdotes. The most mind blowing moments happen when you realize, or Temple Grandin points out, that understanding humanity has an awful lot in common with animal husbandry. This is easily in my list of top 5 nonfiction books ever read.

The Memory of Water by Karen White
The Memory of Water

Michelle Siegel, December 30, 2011

This book caputured my attention from the very beginning and carried it right through until the end. The mystery of what would cause a little boy to become mute was enthralling. The characters developed by Karen White are completely realistic and engaging. The focus on the South Carolina backdrop makes me want to hop in my car and go exploring there myself. I imagine if you are from this area it would be like coming home. This is my first Karen White book and I am sure I will read many more by this talented author!

Distant Shores by Kristin Hannah
Distant Shores

Michelle Siegel, July 11, 2011

A love story of sorts that gets tripped up along the way. So let's say a real life love story with realistic characters and a beautiful setting. I LOVE Kristin Hannah's books, although this was not my favorite it ranks in the top three. A perfect summer read for any woman who is seeking true happiness in their life. Learn through Elizabeth and Jack Shore how to find true love, it is where you least expect it!!

Kenny & the Dragon by Tony Diterlizzi
Kenny & the Dragon

Michelle Siegel, January 2, 2011

The tale of one Rabbit and one Dragon who would become the best of friends! A fairy tale style story with a perfect ending. Kenny the rabbit and Grahame (like the cracker) the dragon convince the entire village that there will be a fierce battle "to the death". A story filled with friendship, acceptance and a bit of suspense! I absolutely loved this story! A perfect book for the young and young at heart!
