The Chief Rabbit Reviews Oh, the Places You'll Go
[...] Good Morning, Social Rabbit here with your guide to the world of social media. You may think that Oh, the Places You'll Go! by Dr. Seuss is an unusual choice for the book review, however, this is a fantastic business book. It has been ranked in the top 10 of business books of all time! The reason I choose it is because you can read so much into it, it can be used for lots of ...
Percy Jackson and the Olympians (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition)
Great fun. . .good mythology
This review is for the entire series, although The Last Olympian is a solid ending to the fun--the choice of title and who that last Olympian is--is truly touching. The entire series is another for us who remain kids forever! Hopefully Riordan will take his place among all the great writers who have produced "quest" novels that not only embody the best of our civilization, but find a place in its ...

An excellent read for young people and old for it is never to late to follow ones ...
Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul (Chicken Soup for the Soul)
Mark Victor Hansen
I am not a teen anymore, but a decade ago, I was. I never went to a public school, or delt with teenage dating, drugs, suicide, sneaking around, or all of that drama. I purchased this for a special teen in my life who has had to go to public school and face all of that. I read it before I gave it to her, and I think I learned some things that enter into the "average teen's" life. I hope she ...
The Care & Keeping of You: The Body Book for Girls (American Girl Library)
American Girl Publishing Inc
Perfect for the first mother-daughter "body talk"
This book is wonderful because it covers so many topics. Because boobs and menstruation are a part of the book along with the skin, hair, and nails advice, it seemed to make it not so much of a BIG DEAL for my daughter. We began reading the book together one night, then while I was at work the next day she read ahead. She met me at the door that night with some questions about the section on ...
Random House Audio
It is one of the best books I have ever read. It was a fascinating story from page one all the way to the last one, and I am not even a horse person. I am very happy I stumbled across it at the library.

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (Picture Puffin)
Never Too Young to Learn to Read
Dr.Martin has demonstrated the beauty of repetition in developing vocabulary in young children. The colors will excite the toddler and instill a love of reading. His companion book, "Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?" follows the identical technique. However, as a childhood educator, Dr. Martin should know that snakes do not have ears and cannot hear. But Eric Carle's hissing boa ...
I Have Lived A Thousand Years (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition)
Draws You Right In
Reading about the holocaust is usually a very difficult thing to do. You must take in the horror, but at the same time, take in the amount of courage and hope it took for these very few survivors telling their story to survive. Some stories are not well told, while others are exceptional. Like this one. I Have Lived A Thousand Years is a brilliant story about one of the few living people who went ...

Chess for Juniors: A Complete Guide for the Beginner
Robert M. Snyder
Random House Puzzles & Games
Will get the next edition in addition to the copy I have
I got this book a couple of years ago and now am chess club presendent at my school chess club in 7th grade. I loaned it out so many times it is getting worn out. When I went to get a copy now I found out it is temporarily not in print because it is going to be made a new edition. I plan to get the new edition for the chess club. What I liked about this book is that it isn't a silly little ...
You Are Special
My 4 year old daughter and I love this book! I love that the artwork and basic story work for younger children but the deeper message of not defining your worth by how people judge you is perfect for older children. (And a good reminder for adults, too!) It's so nice to find a book with such a positive message. We can't wait to get more from this series!
Anticancer: A New Way of Life
BBC Audiobooks America
One of the most important books you can read
I enjoy reading about health and nutrition, and I have slogged through a lot of scientific writing-- so I completely appreciate the superb job that Dr. Servan-Schreiber has done with this book. What struck me was the HEART that he shows in the writing. He clearly cares about this subject and about the people he can help with his message. I have never read a nutrition/health book before that moved ...

They Cage The Animals At Night (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition)
Jennings M. Burch
It's the kind of things we wish didn't happen but do and pretending it doesn't exist wont make it go away. Acctually the more we know about it and the more we speak about it the the more we can prevent it. Well written. Good book. Read it. Share it.
AWESOME BOOK FOR ALL AGES
This book was loaned to me when I was thick in the middle of the worst grief I have ever felt. How or why it comforted me is something I cannot explain; but, I was so soothed by its message that I bought 2 for my "library"...one to keep when my family or I need its message; and, one to loan out as was done to me - pass on the message, normalize the stages of grief, give support when it is needed ...
