Charlotte's Web (Trophy Newbery) by E B White
Charlotte's Web (Trophy Newbery)

njcur, January 21, 2015

This is one of the most wonderful children's books of all time. It is amazing to me that it did not win the Newbery Award. Fabulous illustrations by Garth Williams. It is a treasure from my childhood and I love it still.

Deaf and Hearing Siblings in Conversation by Marla C. Berkowitz

njcur, December 27, 2014

This is a good book for those working with the deaf. It gives a view of deaf culture and of family dynamics outside of that culture. I was saddened at times and heartened by different family tales. Much of the book is very academic, but there are well told stories to illustrate the authors' points. It does a good job of getting inside the heads of siblings both hearing and deaf, to understand each person's personal struggles. Good explanations of the problems, but no real suggestions on how to overcome family difficulties. I think anyone with deaf family members would profit by hearing the other side of the story as presented here.

I won this in a LibraryThing giveaway and was grateful for the opportunity to read it in exchange for an honest review.

Tamales: Fast and Delicious Mexican Meals by Alice G Tapp
Tamales: Fast and Delicious Mexican Meals

njcur, December 5, 2014

Well, I'm not actually finished with this book. A cookbook like this I will use over and over. It is a great book for beginners as well more experienced cooks. It includes everything from making masa to rolling and tying the tamales as well as delicious fillings and sauces. I was surprised to see how much fat is in tamale masa. And glad to see that a polenta masa recipe was included that cut the fat dramatically. Recipes for traditional fillings as well as more unusual ones are in this wonderful book. Also for sweet tamales which are often overlooked. Quite a variety of yummy sauces as well. The beautiful as well as instructive illustration really inspire me to get cooking. Thank you to the publisher for providing me an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.

The Joy of the Gospel: Evangelii Gaudium by Pope Francis
The Joy of the Gospel: Evangelii Gaudium

njcur, November 5, 2014

This beautiful hardcover edition is a great addition to any spiritual person's library. The pope's thoughts are laid out in nice bite size chunks. Just right for meditation. This would be a good choice for a worship sharing group to read together and discuss. Very challenging and uplifting.
