Review: Would a Worm...



The name of this book gives readers a clue that the contents are fun and colorful, and once you open the cover, you'll know you are right! This fun and colorful book helps children ages 3 to 8 learn about different animals and what they can and cannot do with whimsical rhymes.
My child is 12 so she wasn't really interested but I knew my nieces would be. 

The author asks readers cute questions using "sing-song" rhymes about eight different animals such as "Would a worm go on a walk / if you could lead him down the street? / Would he wear his tiny tennies / if he had four worm-sized feet?" These questions remind kids in a fun way that no, worms don't have feet so they wouldn't be wearing sneakers. Written in bouncing rhymes, Would a Worm Go on a Walk? asks all sorts of silly questions: "Would a rhino wear a raincoat?"..."Would a turtle drive a truck if she had to get to town?"...and more. Each question is answered with an equally cute explanation.

It is a really sweet book that kids will love.

My Mother's Quilts- book review


When I got this in the mail I knew it was going to be my new fav devotional book. It is so beautiful inside, the pictures are so clear and crisp, the stories are so beautiful. hey are just beautiful and the love and care that went into each one reminds us of the love and care that the Lord has for us.

My mom is a quilter so I knew it was gonna be extra special to read those beautiful stories. 

Ramona shares the stories of her family's quilts. Especially those of her mother and grandmother. Each one has a Scripture and a thoughtful point to ponder after each story.  I devoured this book in one setting and enjoyed every minute of it. 

 Each quilt is as unique and lovely as the hands that created them with each one depicting the enduring legacy of faith, family, and tradition. Each story is intriguing, encouraging and inspiring. My favorite stories include the one about the Dutch Doll, and the Cathedral Window.

Review of Bible belle's

I was delighted when I found a book for girls not about a Princess.. 
There is a new book series not he block and this time it is not about princesses... 


In this book, we meet Rooney Cruz, a spunky, kind and pretty normal 9 year old girl with everyday 9 year old troubles. Rooney has a run in with a group of mean girls, leaving her feeling scared and unsure of herself. Through a surprising turn of events, Rooney gets to take a peek into the past and sees how a woman named Hannah has to deal with some of the same feelings. Hannah cries out to God and experiences God’s presence with her. Rooney realizes that she can do the same and that no matter what happens, God will be with her.

This is such a lesson for all ages to understand, no matter what happens or what we go thru Jesus is with us. 

The book is fabulously written by Erin and gorgeously illustrated by Rob Corley, a former Disney animator. We’re super excited about the rest of the books in the series, with the next one, Esther: The Belle of Patience, coming out in early 2016.
