A Plague of Unicorns- a book review

unnamed (1)

Excitement filled the house when we received Jane Yolen’s latest book, “A Plague of Unicorns.”   What mythical creatures and great adventures in a land of fantasy we were about to discover.  This is our first Jane Yolen book, and yet Yolen is no stranger to our family.  She is one of my favorite illustrators.  She has illustrated a number of books written by Karma Wilson and has brought life to Bear!  Oh, how I love Bear and his great adventures.

Jane Yolen has written an enchanted story that will engage both young boys and girls alike.  Readers will be charmed by the characters and will find themselves lost in the middle of a great story.  The story is set in a make-believe medieval village; a time that is unfamiliar and captivating to Yolen’s young audience.  In this magical tale Callanshire, James, son of the Duke of Callander is sent away at the early age of 9 to study at Cranford Abbey.  The school tries to stay financially afloat by making apples into cider.  But the Unicorns also love apples and shortly after they plague the school.  No matter what the monks do, they are not able to get rid of the horned creatures.  James Callanshire remains brave, caring, courageous, and becomes a hero!  Find out how…get yourself a copy today!222


This is an easy read for children ages 8-12 and can be found in the fantasy section.

Love Letters from God: a book review

Love Letters from God is a delightful book written by Glenys Nellist for children ages 4-8.  With the turn of each beautifully illustrated page your child will learn a familiar bible story and God’s special word.  Love Letters from God takes you from the very beginning with Adam and Eve to the Resurrection.   Be reminded of God’s promises.  My children enjoyed guessing the Bible story by finding clues in the images drawn by Sophie Allsopp.  This book also includes a flap feature with a letter written from God at the end of each Bible story.   Love Letters from God is a beautiful book to read any time and teaches your child of God’s love and how they are never alone.  Call out to the Lord and he will hear you no matter where you are.

Riley Mae and the Ready Eddy Rapids

My daughter A just finished reading Riley Mae and the Ready Eddy Rapids a chapter book by Jill Osborne. This book has 252 pages and took her about a week to read, in between doing all of her studies, choir, recorder and guitar practice. We received a complimentary copy of this book from Zondervan Publishing and because it is written for young girls I thought it would be best if my daughter wrote the review. So here it is…My daughter A is nine years old and has written the body for this book review. Here is A’s book review on Riley Mae and the Ready Eddy Rapids:
riley mae
“This story is about this girl that was 13 years old named Riley Mae Hart. When Riley meets Flip and Fawn she goes on an amazing adventure. When they were on the plane the girl learned Flip and Fawn weren’t Flip and Fawn. They were the children of a billionaire. Since the father was so rich bad people killed him for his money. Weeks later Riley and her dad meet Sunday, who loves the color orange and is fighting Leukemia. Sunday has three sisters; Hope, Faith, and Grace. When Riley’s mom comes with her friend Rusty she goes on the ride of her life.

I liked this book because it shows how God is always there. God helped Rusty, Riley’s friend find her mother. In the story you will learn that her mom had left her and her dad when Rusty was younger. God also healed Sunday from Leukemia. Sunday was thankful and had a huge smile. This book is a reminder to girls like me that are young, that God is always with us even though we can not see him. -A”
