Even Me by Jennie Bourquin with illustrations by W. H. Mackey

Image
No matter what our age, there are days many of us could use a reminder that we are valuable just for who we are. Even Me by Jennie Bourquin is a children's book that reminds kids that they are all valuable treasures just as they are.

Novi is a small caterpillar who hears a voice from The One to go to a boat. Along the way, Novi meets some other animals and he also learns that he is special even though he doesn't feel very special. 



My family loved Even Me. This book is a fun read for children--especially when doing the voices in the book. The illustrations are vibrant and beautiful. Most of all, though, I love that this book reminds children, and anyone listening to this cute story, that they are all valuable to God and have a purpose just as they are. I highly recommend Even Me!

I received a copy of this book from the author. All opinions are my own. This book is available at Amazon. For more information please check out the author's website: https://www.jenniebeebooks.…

Yours Truly, Thomas by Rachel Fordham

Image
Penny Ercanbeck was once a member of the local high society. After her father passed away and her finances dwindled, Penny went to work in the dead letter office. Penny has a romantic view of life and sometimes longs for the letters she reads to come to a happy conclusion. When she comes across a letter from Thomas to his true love, Clara, she seeks to find the lost letter's home and reunite the lovers. However, Penny's search to find Clara turns out a little different then she expected. You will want to find out about Penny's search in Yours Truly, Thomas by Rachel Fordham.

Yours Truly, Thomas is a sweet historical romance that you won't want to miss. I enjoyed this second book in The Hope of Azure Springs series. I truly enjoyed getting to know the characters and watching them make changes in their lives. I also enjoyed reading some of this story through the various letters in the book. I felt like as the reader, I could get in on a little of Penny's fun. I thoug…

Teen to Teen Academic Planner 2019-2020

Image
The Teen to Teen Academic 2019-2020 Planner from BH Publishing is a clean-designed planner with spreads that will help keep any teen organized throughout the academic year. Those teens familiar with the Teen to Teen devotionals may especially like it, but it is a great planner for any Christian teenager.

The Teen to Teen Academic Planner has a calendar for the academic year in the front followed by a page to provide basic information about the owner in case it is lost, an address page for friends and family,  a section to write important dates to remember for each month, a monthly goal section, a weekly schedule and a semester planner for both semesters. Each of these sections allow plenty of space for writing and is clear and easy to read--which my teen boy likes. Then there is a month at a glance page for each month of the academic year and  a 2-page spread for each week throughout the year that includes space to write under each day all of the assignments and notes that are needed. …

The Hope of Azure Springs by Rachel Fordham

Image
Em and her sister Lucy rode the orphan train from New York to Iowa after their parents passed away. Em had promised to keep her sister safe and she did--until they were separated on the adoption platform and Lucy was adopted before Em. Em's new home in Iowa is a rough one but she survives until her guardian is shot and killed. Em is also injured and finds herself in Azure Springs recuperating with a local family while the Sheriff seeks to solve her case. However, Sheriff Caleb Reynolds and Em may both find a few things they don't expect as they work to find the bad guys in The Hope of Azure Springs by Rachel Fordham.

I enjoyed The Hope of Azure Springs from the start until the last page. I was surprised to learn that this was Fordham's first book. I found the characters were well-developed. I liked most of them at the beginning and surprisingly a couple that I didn't like at first, I liked at the end. I especially liked how Fordham helped the characters handle gossip …

Former Navy Seal Leif Metcalfe is leading a team to find the book for the United States. Iskra "Viorica" Todorova also wants the book--but she wants to secure her freedom from an evil power that holds her captive. Then there are the other evil powers who also want the book for their own use. With all of them searching and facing other evils in the world it makes for one exciting, action-packed book. Storm Rising by Ronie Kendig is the first book of the Book of the Wars series.

Wow! I was on the edge of my seat throughout reading this fascinating book. It has suspense, mystery, romance--everything you could want in one book. Storm Rising is full of strong characters. Some I started out not liking but by the end of the book, once I knew the whole story, I could truly feel for them. I have not read Kendig's series The Tox Files but I…
