Three Cups by Mark St. Germain – Review

"Hey Brandy can I borrow five bucks?".  How many times did I hear this growing up?  I truly couldn't count.  My brother was far from a saver and well I was a pro (I wish that I still had that ability).  I was a walking money bank and yes I charged interest.  The best thing is that my mom insured that I received payment plus the interest.With a story like Three Cups to help our children learn the value of a dollar, I hope that parents can really help pound home the facts … [Read more...]

My Dad My Hero by Ethan Long Review

My Dad My Hero by Ethan Long is an amazing children's book.  In it, a young boy explains all of the reasons why his dad is not a super hero.  He can't lift trains over his head (not even the toy ones), he can't jump tall buildings (or even building blocks), and he can't turn himself invisible.  But his dad still spends lots of time with him, and that makes him the ultimate super hero.  I received the book to review last month, and we wrapped it up immediately so that the … [Read more...]

Little Green Books Review and Giveaway (Birthday Bash) – CLOSED

As a mother, I try to stay calm about most situations.  I have to admit though that I often find myself in moments of anxiety about the state of our planet.  Whether or not you believe that global warming is a problem or take the time to recycle, it's hard to ignore the drastic impact humans have had on the Earth.  I love living in New Mexico, but I have to say that this is an extremely dirty place.  There is trash and litter everywhere we look, and it makes it difficult to … [Read more...]
