The Book of Bright Ideas
by Sandra Kring

There are far too many "cookie cutter" books on the market. Ms. Kring wrote a book that has heart and soul. Reading this gem of a book took me back to my own childhood. It evoked memories, feelings, and ideas from days gone by. The characters felt like people I knew. Ms. Kring gave us people to care about and reasons to care about them. Their lives and their concerns were believable and honest. I couldn't wait to read what happened next, but I didn't want it to end.
"The Book of Bright Ideas" is memorable, the stuff classics are made of.

The Book of Bright Ideas is an enchanting novel of childhood, wonder, and a number of family secrets. Engaging from first to last, I was delighted to meet these people--particularly Aunt Verdella, who poignantly reminded me of one of my own aunts. Furthermore, as the book came to a close, I'd become so attached to Button, Winnalee, and all, I was sorry to see them go.
