Say thank you and good night to farmers, doctors, teachers, firefighters, and God, who takes care of us all. Your little ones will sleep soundly, feeling safe and loved.

Night night, helpers—Sleepytown too!

Thank you all for what you do.

Amy Parker’s children’s books have sold more than a million copies, including two Christian Retailing’s Best award-winning books and the bestselling A Night Night Prayer; Night Night, Farm; and Night Night, Train.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review-  A super quick and sweet children's book that is sure to excite little readers, but not too much because it is of course bedtime.   I think that the illustrations are bright and very enjoyable and this would make a great little nap time read. 

Excess Baggage By Tracey Carisch Review


Excess Baggage: One Family's Around-the-World Search for Balance

Tracey Carisch thought she had it all. As a wife, mother, and successful executive, she seemed to be living the modern American dream. But one night, a panic attack sent her tumbling into a midlife crisis and questioning everything. That’s when she and her husband made a decision that shocked their family and friends: they sold everything they owned, pulled their three young daughters out of school, and became a family of wandering globetrotters.

Loaded with hilarious mishaps as well as deeply meaningful revelations, Excess Baggage chronicles the Carisch family’s extraordinary eighteen-month adventure across six continents, bringing to mind the spiritual journey of Eat Pray Love – and the comical mishaps of National Lampoon’s Vacation.

Through Tracey’s insightful and poignant narrative, the reader will discover the life lessons of an around-the-world journey without leaving home.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  Could you imagine having the strength to leave everything and redo your lifestyle choices?  Would you have the courage to sell all of your belongings and travel around the world with your kids? The author shares more than just her adventures in this easy to read and well written book.  I would recommend it for the reader that feels held back in life.
