The Dragon and the Unicorn by Lynne Cherry

One of my favorite books to read to my child because it helps her understand better what her relationship with nature should truly be...respectful and in awe. I love this book! I wish more children's books were like this...showing the magic all around us.

The rasberry chocolate cake is to die for. I think she was a baker or did a lot of baking. Some of the recipes are too soy heavy for me but her baked goods....YUM.

Pure and simple a good read. Plus I cried toward an end. Always a hard thing to get me to do while reading...

World Leader Pretend by James Bernard Frost
World Leader Pretend

Picked it up and honestly could not put it down for a moment. Read it while waiting for the bus, riding BART, eating dinner, eating lunch, before bed....
I fell in love with all the characters from Dietrich in Antarctica to Xerxes crazy twin Gabriella to King Bonz a Thai orphan to The Serpant to Tres the Olympic skier virgin quadraplegic. I am not a gamer, have never even played an online game but could begin to understand the draw of playing. But, beyond the gaming, the stories of the lives of each of the players was what drew me in. INTENSE READ!!
