Cookie Cutters & Sled Runners Childrens Book Review

  I recently had my grandaughter read the cutest book ever - "Cookie Cutters & Sled Runners", by Natalie Rompella.  I am writing my review as told by my grandaughter, she said this book is about best friends, making new friends and learning that some kids can be completely different from each other.
  Ana and Lily have just entered middle school and they are best friends.  Each year the school grade has the students pair up and show their talents, it is a big project.  Ana and Lily already have big dreams of writing their own cookbook and selling them when they are older.  They both love to cook.

Inline image 1

Get ready to “drop the mic” on the beauty aisles at Target stores this December. The Doux® (pronounced The Do) is a “new school” modern hair care system with an “old school edge.” With packaging that is bold and bright and product titles inspired by 90’s hip hop, The Doux is poised to kill it with those seeking a way to smoothing curly, kinky, and wavy hair into both, curly or straight styles.

Created by Maya Smith, a 25-year celebrity stylist and International Curl Master, The Doux was first launched in Europe in 2011 in response to her passion for helping people master the hair they were born with. STRAIGHT, NATURAL, CURLY, or RELAXED, according to The Doux, if you grew it, it’s ALL GOOD. “I was living in Germany at the time, had my own salon there and my specialty was helping clients to transition to a relaxer-free lifestyle. I’m obsessed with people maximizing the potential of the hair they were born with. Mastering curls is my passion and purpose,” explains Smith.

"The Man Who Carried Cash" a Book about Johnny Cash Review/ Giveaway

The Man Who Carried Cash cover

  I just finished reading the wonderfully, informative book, " The Man Who Carried Cash", by Julie Chadwick and it was so good!  I did not want to finish the book because I didn't want the story to come to an end.  I am a huge Johnny Cash fan and this book told so much more about the man, how his career and life really happened than any I had seen or read.  I have seen movies about Mr. Cash's life and the movies didn't completely tell the whole story and the time line's didn't match.
  This biography book about Johnny Cash is based on actual videos, recordings and calendar times of happening that were written when and where they took place.  Jonathan Holiff  is the son of Saul Holiff who was Johnny's manager and side-by-side companion for 13 years.

365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids Review/Giveaway

  365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids is a book full of questions that are answered about God.  I was amazed at some of the questions that I didn't know the answers to myself, so this book is great for adults as well as children.
  Questions about God, the Bible and Faith are answered in a way that points children to God in a loving way.  This book includes topics such as:  God, time, God's promises, Jesus, the Old Testament, the New Testament, prayer, holidays, Christian seasons and traditions, being a Christian and Eternity.
  One of the questions is: "What is the Trinity?" and the answer is, "who is the Trinity - God, God's son and God's Holy Spirit".  "The Trinity is a way to describe God.   There is more to the answer, where this question is found in the Bible and a prayer at the bottom of the page.
  There are also many "Want to Know More?" cross-referencing at the bottom of some devotions for the child who wants to learn more.
