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!

Crochet Ragdoll Friends by Sascha Blase-Van Wagtendonk
As a veteran at crochet, I found this book to contain many delightful patterns with great step-by-step instructions. The little creatures/animals will delight adults and children alike.
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.
Too-Small Tyson by JaNay Brown-Wood
I love books that can be read to children as a story but integrates math and problem solving using size and shape. Many students can identify with Tyson and it will be a great book to use in class!
Honeybee Rescue: A Backyard Drama by Loree Griffin Burns
Enjoyed reading this excellent educational introduction to honeybees! As a former children’s librarian for many years, I know that after this book is introduced to students, it will become an instant hit!
