The American Horticultural Society A-Z Encyclopedia of Garden Plants by Christopher Brickell
The American Horticultural Society A-Z Encyclopedia of Garden Plants

Every plant/flower I've ever looked up has been here. Many pictures and info to help me coordinate which plants bloom when, how tall they get, and what amount light, water, etc. they need! THE gold standard plant reference book.

Library Lion by Michelle Knudsen
Library Lion

lynnettek, March 27, 2009

Oh, you should read this! I got choked up and struggled to continue reading and sounding normal as I was trying to hold back sobs! As soon as I finished, I left the room and sobbed my eyes out! My hubby held me and laughed while I told him my reaction to this awesome story. The kids liked it, but alas, no crying from them! Yes, this is a picture book, fiction, about a lion who loves the library and a grouchy library employee, but oh, it's a great read for the adult too...

Crown & Covenant #01: Duncan's War by Douglas Bond
Crown & Covenant #01: Duncan's War

lynnettek, March 25, 2009

"Mom, can we read Duncan's War?!" Is the plea I have from my son every morning. He loves Duncan's adventures and I love that he's also becoming familiar with history: 1600s Scotland. The church v. the king, there's persecution, a drunk vicar catching fire during the sermon that's supposed to be on Sunday but he holds it on Saturday (he's drunk, remember), old castle ruins, a stand for what's right, and fun scottish accents. It's funny, intense, suspenseful. I've kept the dictionary close by and I've stopped and explained a few things but basically it seems my 8 year old is able to grasp the happenings (he WANTS MORE)! (He couldn't read it on his own, I'm reading it aloud.) I'd probably suggest it is a bit beyond him, but at this point we're both hooked. (I'm tempted to read on without him because I can't wait to see what happens.) My 4 year old daughter is less than impressed (not enough pictures you know!)
