Cutting for Stone (Vintage) by Abraham Verghese
Cutting for Stone (Vintage)

sep, August 5, 2012

Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese was so eloquently written I did not want to take a break from reading for fear of abandoning the characters in the book. Verghese's descriptive and engaging narrative pulled me into the story so well I could close my eyes and believe I too was in the hospitals in Addis Ababa and New York City.

Verghese's research and attention to detail are to be commended. Only once or twice did I find the detail tedious, but I must admit that was more-than-likely due to my impatience to know the outcome of the situation!

I would recommend Cutting for Stone to anyone who wishes to be transported without effort to another time and place and to feel the pulse of a different city or even the thrills and trials of a dedicated surgeon's work.

The Read-Aloud Handbook: Sixth Edition (Read-Aloud Handbook) by Jim Trelease

Every parent and teacher (Pre-K through high school level) should be required to read this book. The research and real life experiences it presents are eye opening and heart warming. Reading aloud to a child benefits the child's ability to learn and helps develop a love of reading all the while a wonderful bond between the reader and the child is created and nurtured. Note to everyone: read aloud to children no matter what their age!!!
