The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah

A big 5 stars for this book! I loved this story that gives the reader a extraordinary view of life during the 1920’s and 30’s, Great Depression Era. I was so engaged in this story as I thought of my own mother and her life during that time. Characters in this book were so vividly portrayed and complex; the story was so rich in history and detailing an era that is not well=known to today’s generation. I always love Kristin Hannah’s style of writing. This book is a great example of her storytelling ability!

Big Bear and Little Fish by Sandra Nickel

A delightful story about two sweet characters who just seem to have nothing in common but still try to form a bond. Friendship books are so uplifting to read to children or for them to read themselves. It’s a “feel good” story that children will want to hear again and again.
