Book Reviews

I recently received 2 books to review and I am happy to share my thoughts on each. This first one truly surprised me. I did not remember what the story line was about and so when I gathered the children to read this aloud to them I was pleasantly surprised. The story is about a little boy who is born "different". He has special needs that cause him to be slower at learning and walking and such. His parents the King and Queen allow him to be who he is and later his "differences" help in a big way. I won't give it away, but I will say that ALL of us loved this book! I will admit to shedding a couple of tears at the end and hearing the "ahhhs" and "ohhhs" from the kids just cemented in my mind what a wonderful, thought-provoking book it truly is. One that will continue to be read over and over in our home! :)

Over a month  ago we received a phone call that my nephew's girlfriend had been in a serious car accident. So serious that she and her mom were taken to Hershey Medical Center and her two nieces were airflighted there. Her one niece, age 7, was released from the hospital but is in a wheelchair. The other niece, age 6, was in a coma for days but has since awoke but will have to relearn everything from eating, to walking to even knowing who her family members very sad. Please keep her in prayer...her name is Destiny. Chrissi, baby G's mommy (and my nephew's girlfriend), was in He…
