Pop Manga Coloring Book by Camilla d'Errico Review



Manga artist and Pop Surrealism superstar Camilla d’Errico presents her first ever adult coloring book, filled with portraits, patterns, and the stunning artwork her fans and collectors have come to love.

This one-of-a-kind book offers you the opportunity to collaborate with d’Errico, adding your colors to her gorgeous black and white linework. Featuring everything from haunting and surreal character portraits to pages filled with patterns and designs all rendered in d’Errico’s inimitable style, Pop Manga Coloring Book is guaranteed to provide hours of coloring fun and excitement.

You can purchase this on Amazon.

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review -  A mix of really weird surrealism and beauty.  You have to be into this type of thing in order to really get excited.  I am not a huge fan, so it was take it or leave it.  The drawings are well done and extremely unique.   Maybe teens might think it is cool.  As far as coloring, the book encourages you to be messy and have fun going out of the lines.  I personally find it more relaxing to try and stay in the lines so it really is based on preference.

Give It a Go, Eat a Rainbow by Kathryn Kemp Guylay Review


Are you a parent or teacher hoping to encourage children to eat more veggies and fruits? Want to support healthy eating messages in a fun, educational and positive way? Looking for great educational messaging with peer-to-peer messaging? Give It a Go, Eat a Rainbow uses charming illustrations by 12-year old Alexander Guylay combined with real-life photography and simple rhymes by award winning nutrition educator Kathryn Kemp Guylay to create an augmented reality that immediately draws kids into the story. Kids are introduced to Blake, the main character, who feels sleepy (low energy) and wonders why he doesn't have the energy to play like other kids.

 Blake meets a friendly, magical leprechaun who takes Blake on a journey to find the pot of gold (a metaphor for good health and energy). Blake is shrunk down to tiny size and explores the colorful world of fruits and veggies. The colors (and fruits and veggies) lead to the pot of gold, where Blake feels vibrant and full of energy. The book addresses healthy eating, specifically fruits and veggies, in an engaging and positive way. Targeting early childhood and elementary school age groups, this picture book will be simple yet profound in promoting healthy eating habits in children. Each page is created for maximum engagement, using a delightful combination of photography, illustration, color and text. Think The Wizard of Oz meets Honey, I Shrunk the Kids meets nutrition and health literature.

Cassandra's Review- A book that will teach and entertain your child. Although an older child will read the answers without taking the time to guess, as they are written on the same page with the questions.  You can try and block the littler ones from peeking.  It is very colorful and provides a good lesson for teachers or homeschool parents to give.

Deadly Encounter By DiAnn Mills Review



Airport Ranger volunteer Stacy Broussard expected a peaceful Saturday morning ride around the perimeter of Houston’s airport. What she encounters instead is a brutal homicide and a baffling mystery. Next to the body is an injured dog, the dead man’s motorcycle, and a drone armed with a laser capable of taking down a 747.

Though FBI Special Agent Alex LeBlanc sees a clear-cut case of terrorism, his past has taught him to be suspicious of everyone, even witnesses. Even bleeding-heart veterinarians like Stacy. But when her gruesome discovery is only the first in a string of incidences that throw her life into a tailspin, Alex begins to wonder if Stacy was targeted. As a health emergency endangers Stacy’s community, and the task force pulls in leads from all directions, Alex and Stacy must work together to prevent another deadly encounter.

Next Door as It Is in Heaven By Lance Ford and Brad Brisco Review



There was a time when neighbors knew each other’s names, when small children and the old and infirm alike had more than their families looking out for them. There was a time when our neighborhoods were our closest communities.

No more. Neighborhoods have become the place where nobody knows your name. Into this neighborhood crisis the words of Jesus still ring true: Second only to the command to love God is the command to “love your neighbor as yourself.”

In Next Door as It Is in Heaven, Lance Ford and Brad Brisco offer first principles and best practices to make our neighborhoods into places where compassion and care are once again part of the culture, where good news is once again more than words, and where the love of God can be once again rooted and established.

Cassandra's Q&A Review

-What did you like about the book and why?  I like how the authors found a way to bring God back into the community.  I enjoy the topic. 

- What did you not like about the book and why? I feel in today's world it is not safe to allow my family to bond with the community, there are too many people who are not responsive to religion and wish only to do harm.   If a teen or middle school child read this book and started to randomly go door to door with the word of God, they could get hurt.  Some of my neighbors are even sex offenders, so I do not feel this was a well thought out book.
 
- What did you learn?  That the authors think this world is safe and want everyone to bond, but do not think about all the negativity and violence in the world and how placing the wrong people together could bring pain and suffering. 

- To whom would you recommend this book and why? Spiritual leaders, people of the church and anyone old enough to understand the safer ways to use the knowledge and facts presented.  

Outlaw Christian By Jacqueline A. Bussie Review

26371114

Jacqueline Bussie knows that too many Christians live according to unspoken laws that govern the Christian life: #1: Never get angry at God; #2: Never doubt; #3: Never question; #4: Never tell your real story; #5: Always speak in cliches about evil and suffering; and #6: Always believe hope comes easy for those who truly love God.

Living according to these rules is killing real Christian life; Outlaw Christian proposes a rebellious, life-giving, authentic alternative. Through captivating stories and with disarming honesty, Bussie gives concrete, practical strategies to help readers cultivate hope, seek joy, practice accompaniment, compost their pain, and rediscover the spiritual practice of lament. Tackling difficult questions without political divisiveness, Bussie speaks to both progressive and conservative Christians in ways that unite rather than divide. And in doing so, she provides a new way to handle the most difficult and troubling questions of life in a broken world that God will never abandon."

Cassandra's Review-  It is easy to fall into the trap of being like everyone else and conforming to the standards of an old religion. With this book you are able to feel god in trying to set out in a new way while freeing yourself from the guilt of repetition in Christians focuses.  The books helps to find a way to break a cycle of focusing on how to be for God through old rules and changes the dynamic of how to go about still being true to your Christian faith.  

A Doubter's Guide to the Ten Commandments By John Dickson Review

27840614

The Ten Commandments are perhaps some of the most well-known and vexed verses of the whole Bible. They have found their way into our art, monuments, literature, and culture—even into Richard Dawkins famed “Ten Atheist Commandments.”


In A Doubter’s Guide to the Ten Commandments, bestselling author John Dickson explores how these ten verses have changed our world and how they show us what the Good Life looks like. Whether or not one believes in the Bible, these ten ancient instructions open up a window to the Western world and on our own soul.

Cassandra's Review- A fresh spin on the Ten Commandments, through the mind of the author.  I know so many who use commandments for their own purposes and twist of the words of God into whatever they need it to be.  This book seems to dig up a better, clearer meaning for each one of them and how they all work together to create a more powerful meaning.

Cassandra's review-  The author spares nothing in is writing.  He tells of his ideas and knowledge into how to change the world with God.  The book is filled with strength for Christians and help with refreshing the spirit. I would recommend it for people of this faith.

About the Book

If Mother Nature has her way, Timber Springs will never be the same…

A warm spring and early rainstorms melt the snowpack. Spring runoff compounded by the storm of the century sends Timber Springs into a tailspin.

Tossed into the role of rescuer, local pharmacist Paul Fitzgerald must face his past before the whole world falls apart. While he fights to contain the beast around him, he finds his steadfast control slipping through his fingers. And life…everyone’s life…hangs by a thread…once again.

She isn’t a hero. Melissa Hampton has her own demons to battle. After she learns of her mysterious beginnings amidst her mother’s keepsakes, she faces more than just the river rushing outside her door. Now, she must discern friend from foe…but as waters rise and tension climbs within Timber Springs, she needs to rise to the challenge or lose the only man she’s ever loved.

Can two people find each other through raging waters?

Quick-drying ink is fade-resistant and water-resistant to create marks that will last. Ultra-fine point lets you thin, precise lines for detailed work. Assorted colors include optic orange, techno blue, ultraviolet, nano blue and electric pink.

 PaperMate Pens:

The InkJoy writing system starts quickly without dragging, requires minimal pressure from your hand, and delivers crisp, clean lines every time. Extended rubberized grip provides optimal comfort.

 PaperMate Correction Tape:

The 1.3mm, No. 2 HB lead is designed for less breakage and never needs sharpening. With an accommodating grip, strong lead and large smudge-resistant eraser, these mechanical pencils are great for standardized tests. Mates are refillable.

I recevied complimentary product.

Cassandra's review-  All of the products worked, excellent and were easy to handle.  I really enjoyed the new style of pencils because they felt easier to hold and did not hurt my hand.  The color choices are bright and visually appealing.  It is nice to use the ultra fine tips of the sharpies as well.   I have not used correction tape in years, so it was fun to try again and this did a lot better covering up my marking with one stroke and not caking up.



Organizing with the help of shoplet and Deflect-o Review

 The Stackable Caddy Organizer (DEF29003) features three removable CLEAR containers to store all your supplies and when removed from the frame can stack independently.


Cassandra's review- A good size and they stack tight, which is a huge plus. My family was so happy to find things to fill it up.  The design is enjoyable to look at and it is easy to handle.  It is light enough to carry or move to another location.  Perfect for crafters or homeschool teachers, like me!
Deflect-o Caddy Organizer
Also

 The Rotating Carousel Organizer (DEF3901CR) allows easy access all the way around and is also one of the most popular storage organizers. It rotates 360 degrees and features clear removable canisters with snap tight lids
Deflect-o 9 Canister Carousel Organizer
Cassandra's Review-- If you are like me and must have everything organized, this is a great product to get, it makes things easier to see and with the rotating base I do not have to life and move it around.  I can even place my essential oils (smaller bottles) inside.  One of my children suggested we use it for a first aid kit in case of emergencies and fill it wil little flashlights, bandaids, batteries etc... I like when my family gets involved in a project!

All Things Bright and Beautiful by Cecil Frances Alexander Review #AllThingsBrightAndBeautiful #FlyBy



About the book:

First published by Cecil Frances Alexander in 1848, this favorite hymn has become a mainstay of

churches and Sunday school classes everywhere. Here artist Katy Hudson brings new joy to the

words with her fresh and bright watercolor style. Readers can join in the fun as they follow two

little girls and their brother on a day filled with the discovery of “all things bright and beautiful.”



About the artist:

Katy Hudson was raised in Middlesbrough, England, and started her career as a small child

drawing on freshly painted walls. Her parents quickly encouraged drawing with pencil and

paper instead. The idea stuck, and after earning a degree in illustration, Katy is now a freelance

illustrator. Katy works at a desk in a studio within Old London Library and likes to tap dance in

her spare time.

Cassandra's Review- After the first read of this book, I realized it was the song. So the second time around I sang it with the kids. The illustrations are very pretty and captured my family's attention. This book would make an excellent gift for younger kids.

#ooma has tips for making your kids safer @Ooma

Picture this: It's the end of July—smack in the middle of summer. Your kids are at home with a caretaker while you toil away at your 9 to 5. Then, disaster strikes. There's an emergency at home, and your kids have to call 911 for help. 
 Are your children calling from a cell phone or a landline? And does it make any difference? Surprisingly, the answer is yes. According to the latest data, if you don't have a landline in your home, it could be putting your children in grave danger.
 Here's a shocking fact: According to an investigation by the USA Today [http://usat.ly/28L5wzD ], the chances of 911 dispatchers being able to find you based on your cell phone's GPS can be as low as 10% in some parts of the country. With a significant share of cell phone-to-911 calls being placed from within residences—and 45% of Americans opting out of landline coverage at home—countless people are left vulnerable in emergencies. The question then becomes not why you should have a landline in the home, but why haven't you gotten one yet?
 Connect with ooma on Facebook

In the spirit of keeping you and your family safe, I recently partnered with Ooma [http://www.ooma.com/] leading Internet home phone service with reliable E911 technology—to deliver three tips for keeping your home safe this summer in addition to owning a landline.


TIP #1: KEEP A FIRST AID KIT AT THE READY

Whether it's for a small scrape or something far worse, it's always a good idea to have a first aid kit handy. People who call 911 from their cell phone are often surprised at how long emergency workers take to arrive on scene. According to the recent Ooma.com 911 Emergency Response Study, more than one in five cell phone callers feel it takes too long—that's seven times higher than for people who call from a landline. If you're often in situations when only a cell phone is available, consider keeping a first aid kit nearby.

TIP #2: WRITE AN EMERGENCY CONTACT LIST

Make sure that no matter where you are, it's easy for the people around you to call your emergency contacts. Consider posting your own number, as well as first response numbers, on your fridge so your kids know how to reach you and your family, family members who live close by, or the authorities. Post the name and number of a trusted friend or neighbor, too. With Ooma's home phone system, up to three of these contacts can be notified by text message automatically when a 911 call is placed. In situations when every second counts, this reliable Internet-based technology could save tens of thousands of lives.

TIP #3: RECOGNIZE THE FIRST SIGNS OF DANGER

Educate your kids about the sights, smells, and sounds of danger. If they hear a smoke alarm or see an appliance overheating, advise your children to get outside as quickly as possible. Planning an exit strategy is key to getting a safe distance away from the house so you can alert a neighbor and have them call the fire department. Consider making a detailed fire plan with multiple escape routes and keeping a printed copy of your fire plan on visible walls around your house.

For many people, money is understandably a legitimate concern—but when it comes down to it, we really can't put a price on ensuring that the people we love are safe. Luckily, first aid kits are both lightweight and budget-friendly, while the price of a secure Ooma landline pays for itself in just three months and costs less than a Netflix subscription on a monthly basis.

Got any 911 emergency stories of your own? I wouldn't be surprised. In the past five years alone, over a quarter of Americans have called 911 with a cell phone, and in that group, there were many dissatisfied callers. If you've got a story you'd feel comfortable sharing, I'd love to hear about them! Be sure to share your thoughts in the comments below.
