I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- The book was tough to get through, especially if you have no super interest or extensive knowledge on the topic.   i found myself drifting off or not being focused because it just seemed like bunced up jargon and facts that were too much for me as a reader.   I actually felt this go over my head and I really did try to understand the whole thing.  I would recommend this book for someone who is very familiar with the topic and can relate or improve themselves from it.

Growing Friendships By Eileen Kennedy-Moore #Review

Growing Friendships

Growing Friendships
A Kid's Guide to Making and Keeping Friends
By Eileen Kennedy-Moore and Christine McLaughlin

From psychologist and children’s friendships expert Eileen Kennedy-Moore and parenting and health writer Christine McLaughlin comes a social development primer that gives kids the answers they need to make and keep friends.

Friendship is complicated for kids. Almost every child struggles socially at some time, in some way. Having an argument with a friend, getting teased, or even trying to find a buddy in a new classroom…although these are typical problems, they can be very painful. And friendships are never about just one thing.

With research-based practical solutions and plenty of true-to-life examples—presented in more than 200 lighthearted cartoons—Growing Friendships is a toolkit for both girls and boys as they make sense of the social order around them.

Children everywhere want to fit in with a group, resist peer pressure, and be good sports—but even the most socially adept children struggle at times. But after reading this highly illustrated guide on their own or with a caring adult, kids everywhere will be well equipped to face any friendship challenges that come their way.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  I think that if you handed a child this book and allowed them at their own pace to read and discover it, they would be able to find a way to make friends and possibly keep them.   I can even see some adults benefiting from really good advice presented.   The little comic sections seemed to be more of a distraction for me personally and made the book a little hard to follow, I would have prefered a straight read.  I can see that maybe a younger child might find them funny or easier to connect with.

Publisher: Race Point Publishing
8.5” x 10”

ISBN: 9781631063053

Stick figures are hotter than ever. The biggest web comics are produced in stick figure format, and they are hugely popular in social media. But the best part about stick figures is that anyone can draw them! Billy Attinger showed how to draw stylized stick figures in his popular Stick Sketch School, and now he's back showing the world his stick figure animals. Take an "artventure" around the world: learn to draw stick animals in the jungle, the Arctic, the rainforest, the Outback, underwater, and more! You'll even learn how to draw extinct animals and fantasy animals in stick form. Each spread features a grid to show the reader how to draw the lines, how to add movement, expression, and more. Ideal for the visual learner and accompanied by tips and tricks from stick artist Billy Attinger, the book shows how to make your stick animals personal, recognizable, and unique!

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- I have children that love to draw and be creative.  One in particular though will really spend a lot of time learning and creating so this book opened a new way for that to happen.  The ideas are cute and easy to learn.  The instructions are a little complex, but not over complex and most children over a certain age should be able to get started right away.

Rubber Band Engineer by Lance Akiyama #Review



Rubber Band Engineer: Build Slingshot Powered Rockets, Rubber Band Rifles, Unconventional Catapults, and More Guerrilla Gadgets from Household Hardware
by Lance Akiyama

"Whoa, that shot a lot farther than I thought it would!"

Shooting far, flying high, and delivering way more exciting results than expected are the goals of the gadgets in this book.

Discover unexpected ways to turn common materials into crafty contraptions that range from surprisingly simple to curiously complex. In vivid color photos, you'll be guided to create slingshot rockets, unique catapults, and even hydraulic-powered machines. Whether you build one or all 19 of these designs, you'll feel like an ingenious engineer when you're through.

Best of all, you don't need to be an experienced tinkerer to make any of the projects within. All you need are household tools and materials, such as paper clips, pencils, paint stirrers, and ice pop sticks.

Oh, and rubber bands. Lots of rubber bands.

So grab your glue gun, pull out your pliers, track down your tape, and get started on the challenging, fun, and rewarding journey toward becoming a rubber band engineer.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- The projects are going to be great for adults to put together for the kids.  Unless you have a super skilled teen that can do this by themselves you should plan on being hands on.  I think all of the ways to create in this book are awesome and in the end if you do the work of building, the fun is going to be worth it.

Each model takes roughly 2–4 hours to build.

I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review-  Depending on the skill level of your child, this could be super fun or drag on and take forever with you eventually having to finish it.   I was able to do both, the activity and added book is really cool and a Star Wars fan is going to be in love.  

CHAVETTE Knee Compression Sleeves Support #Review


CHAVETTE Knee Compression Sleeves Support ( 1 Pair ) for Sports Activities, Knee Support Braces for Pain Relief and Recovery

Support Kneels: Compression helps to keep the knees very stable. Suitable for all sports activities that involve a great amount of stress on the knee joint, including basketball, football, volleyball, running, fitness, cycling, hiking and etc.

Pain Relief and Protection
Ergonomic design
Double Wave Anti-Slip Silicon

I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review-  A good fit and easy to put on. The material is a little uncomfortable if you do not like certain feels.   It does bend with the knee but there is tension and there is not a hard cup for the knee cap, so you can not kneel on harder surfaces, easily.   It does offer compression but that is going to vary depending on the fit for you.

Giving It All Away and Getting It All Back Again By David Green with Bill High #Review

30649242
David Green believes that generosity and building a legacy based on giving can lead to getting back what you really want: a family that stays together, prays together, and shares life joyfully.

Green tells the story of caring for the small things and starting Hobby Lobby in their garage. He shares the difference between the worlds of “having and hoarding” and a world of “giving and generosity,” the principle of working for God and not for men, and that now is not too soon to consider what you want your legacy to be.

As proof of how living by those principles can change your life, Green shares that when Hobby Lobby came close to bankruptcy in 1986 and when the Supreme Court challenged the Hobby Lobby’s right to life beliefs in 2014, the company emerged with its integrity intact.

Green sees the life of giving as a life of adventure. But it’s a life that pays the best rewards personally, offers a powerful legacy to your family, and changes those you touch.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  At first I felt like the author was a big shot showing off what he gave in a flashy way and really just absorbing the whole book on him and Hobby Lobby.  It was a way in my mind for him to add gloating and show how much money he has had and gives but I also found it sad that he chose to give only to a cause which send out religious materials to other countries.  

I know that religion is a great gift for some.  Could you imagine for a second if he chose to give millions of dollars to the USA in hopes of freeing our country from poverty and hunger or sickness.

 What if he choose a few different states to give the 250,000 to for them to help with our much needed causes instead of the organizations that will print materials for people to find God.

 I know that people think that other countries are in more need than our own and I get that we need to provide relief for them, but we can only be strong when we as a nation are stronger.    I think the best thing the author mentioned was the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation because at least I know that he is aware of more important causes.

It is like he is playing God with his family and choosing the fate of people, but at the same time saying that God is the reason he does it.  I felt like the book was just a way for  a rich man to get some facetime and for him to spend his money in another way.  Generosity has no bounds but when you take time to write a book, it is like you expected the reader to give you a blessing instead of being a blessing.
I also feel like there are so many levels of poor and to talk about having groups where rich people gather to give each other a pat on the back for the money they give is just sad.   When I personally have to drive a car that is beyond repair and struggle for basic needs on a daily basis as a single mom, I just feel sick when I read about a person who gives to needs people can not really use.  Unless they are planning to build a fire with the reading material in the philippines to stay warm or cook, I just do not see how helpful it is to give even bigger organizations more money to print and destroy more of our resources like trees, as a way to help.

Maybe I am just touchy on this subject or perhaps only a poor person can see the truth on this matter, but either way I was thrilled to finish reading this because I could not believe that someone would write and really believe they were giving the world another great material to learn from.

Cassandra's review- I feel like this book had a really pretty cover that was super attracting to my eyes.  It is though another easy to understand version of the Bible which is perfect if that is what you want your family to learn as well as enjoy.  It is completely faith based and some may not find it as good as others.  As a Bible I think it is perfect and a lot easier for anyone who has trouble reading the older versions, to read.

Romancing Daphne By Sarah M. Eden #Review



Romancing Daphne 
by Sarah M. Eden

As her first London Season looms before her, the thought of the impending social whirl fills Daphne Lancaster's timid heart with dread. She hasn't her sister's beauty nor their talent for conversing easily. Even her family's enviable connections may not be enough to prevent disaster.

But Daphne's misery turns to surprise delight when the first event of her Season brings an unexpected visitor to her door—James Tilburn, whose tender kindness stole her heart in her youth. When the handsome young gentleman expresses his desire to court her, Daphne is elated. Their feelings for each other quickly grow, and it appears that, much to Daphne s disbelief, her happily ever after is within reach.

Yet nothing is as it seems. The couple finds themselves caught in a tangled web of greed and deceit, leaving James and Daphne to determine whether they are willing to risk everything for true love.

I received a complimentary copy.

Sarah M. Eden
Sarah M. Eden is a USA Today bestselling author of multiple historical romances, including AML's "2013 Novel of the Year" and Foreword Review’s 2013 “IndieFab Book of the Year” gold medal winner for Best Romance, Longing for Home, and the Whitney Awards "2014 Novel of the Year," Longing for Home: Hope Springs. Combining her obsession with history and affinity for tender love stories, Sarah loves crafting witty characters and heartfelt romances set against rich historical backdrops. She holds a Bachelor's degree in research and happily spends hours perusing the reference shelves of her local library. Sarah lives with her husband, kids, and mischievous dog in the shadow of a snow-capped mountain she has never attempted to ski.

Cassandra's Review-  This book is going to be a huge hit in the world of old fashioned romance with a  twist.   The kind of book that includes you as a reader into a time and setting that depending on your age you will either really love or get lost in.  The actual character build up and strengths as far as playing a huge part in the stories are not as pronounced, but the details are there.   I would say this book is for the reader that indulges in the genre.

The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman #Review

21416690

The first installment of an adventure featuring stolen books, secret agents and forbidden societies - think Doctor Who with librarian spies!

Irene must be at the top of her game or she'll be off the case - permanently...

Irene is a professional spy for the mysterious Library, which harvests fiction from different realities. And along with her enigmatic assistant Kai, she's posted to an alternative London. Their mission - to retrieve a dangerous book. But when they arrive, it's already been stolen. London's underground factions seem prepared to fight to the very death to find her book.

Adding to the jeopardy, this world is chaos-infested - the laws of nature bent to allow supernatural creatures and unpredictable magic. Irene's new assistant is also hiding secrets of his own.

Soon, she's up to her eyebrows in a heady mix of danger, clues and secret societies. Yet failure is not an option - the nature of reality itself is at stake.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  A book filled with great fun and adventure for all ages, but I think that younger kids may really dive in and imagine more.  I have watched similar stories on tv and in movies, but this has the author's own special style included.   I think that reading this outloud would be a great experience especially if you like to spend time with your family.

Cassandra's Review-  Two excellent and very informative books that will help your little one learn all about Sukkot.  The illustrations are really enjoyable.  My children love learning and sharing holiday fun, even if you are not familiar or have never practiced this holiday, it is still super fun to try.
