  • Little Lola by Julie Saab and David Gothard

    Book Review: Little Lola

    First, you should know that David Gothard is a colleague of mine and he is a terrifically nice and talented person with super-cute kids, which will obviously make this review non-biased, but we’re not running a newspaper here in blog-ville, are we? No, we are not. We love journalism and we love not-journalism. Second, you […]

    Book review: Everything Goes – Henry Goes Skating

    We loved “Everything Goes on Land” by Brian Biggs (see previous review!) so we were super excited about the early reader “Everything Goes – Henry Goes Skating,” since Emily, our 5-year-old, is just starting to read.

The author apparently had a blog of the photos and it became quite popular, now the book. You’re jealous, right? Who wouldn’t be? My initial […]

    Book review: Extra Yarn

      Extra yarn is about a little girl in a winter town who finds a box of yarn that never runs out. It’s a kind of gentle fairy tale with just a hint of magic, the kind of magic that’s quiet and in the background and takes second stage to the real miracles of kindness, […]
