Jelly Bean Blessings Review

Jelly Bean Blessings
By Tommy Nelson Books
Jelly Bean Blessings is a cheery seasonal board book that celebrates all springtime blessings! Kids will be drawn to the charming cover and whimsical art, and they'll love the idea of exploring the many reasons we love spring.

With charming art and an adorable cover, Jelly Bean Blessings is the perfect way to celebrate all the wonderful blessings of spring.

Cassandra's Review- A book with very vivid and beautiful illustrations that kept my children's interest.   The wording felt kind of thrown together and not really much of a praise God book, however the last few sentences do state thank God.  I guess for younger readers the colors are the best part of this book.

8 Minutes a Day to Make an A By Pamela L. Johnson Review

8 Minutes a Day to Make an A!: Quick Change Your Adhd Child Now40598185
Using this System, your child can go from D's and F's to A's and B's within 4-6 weeks and stay there! Your child will also remember to do routines and chores without having to be reminded.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  As a parent to children with special needs and one in particular who has ADHD, I can tell you that this book is a good inclusion to the process of learning with your child, but it is not the answer.  All children are different and there is no box or certain place that you can put them as far as learning or behavior and in this aspect there is no way that everyone can use the same methods or get the same results.  To assume that you can read this one book and your whole life is going to change for the better would be unrealistic at best.   I would recommend reading with a grain of salt so to speak and taking what you think might be the best tips from it, to practice in your home.

The author
Artist F. Sehnaz Bac is celebrated for her radiantly colorful and charming painted stones, which she sells on Etsy as I Sassi Dell'Adriatico (The Adriatic Stones). She is also the artist for three Brilliantly Vivid Color-by-Number books: Animal Friends, Flowers and Mandalas, and Birds and Butterflies. Sehnaz has more than 550,000 Facebook followers. She lives in Alba Adriatica, Italy, a small town on the Adriatic Sea.

Artist and illustrator Marisa Redondo uses primarily watercolors and oils to create artwork inspired by nature. Growing up in the heart of San Diego, drawing was how she found a calm balance in the busy city. Currently based in Northern California, Marisa is fascinated by nature's creations and the little pieces of life that often go unnoticed, from the fine lines of feathers to the spores of a dandelion. Through watercolor, she explores the organic patterns and intricate details impressed on everything from the earth. Her paintings are a mix of the modern city she came from and the natural land where she now live. Learn more at www.riverlunaart. com.

Artist Margaret Vance paints beautifully vibrant and colorful rock art full of intricate detail and pattern. As in nature, no two painted stones are alike. Each stone and its design is unique. Margaret works with each stone's shape, size, and texture to create a singular mix of art and nature. Learn more at www.etherealandearth. com.

Cassandra's Review-  Filled with super fun ideas and including templates for even easier practice this book is great for any age. Younger kids might have a harder time getting the perfect artwork but it will be so fun just to have the quality time trying. 

Little Free Libraries & Tiny Sheds By Philip Schmidt Review

Little Free Libraries & Tiny Sheds
12 Miniature Structures You Can Build
Little Free Libraries & Tiny Sheds
Expand the sharing movement to your community with Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds—your complete source for building tiny sharing structures, including plans for 12 different structures, step-by-step photography and instructions, inspirational examples, and maintenance.

Around the world, a community movement is underway featuring quaint landscape structures mounted on posts in front yards and other green spaces. Some are built for personal use, as miniature sheds for gardeners or as decorative accent pieces. More commonly, though, they are evidence of the growing trend toward neighborhood organization and community outreach.

This movement has been popularized by Wisconsin-based Little Free Library (LFL), whose members currently include 75,000 stewards seeking to build community togetherness and promote reading at the same time by sharing books among neighbors. LFL has inspired builders to use similar structures to share things like CDs, food, garden tools, and seeds in the community.

Produced in cooperation with Little Free Library, Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds is the builder's complete source of inspiration and how-to knowledge. Illustrated throughout with colorful step-by-step photography and a gallery of tiny structures for further inspiration, Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds covers every step: planning and design, tools and building techniques, best materials, and 12 complete plans for structures of varying size and aesthetics. In addition, author and professional carpenter Phil Schmidt includes information on proper installation of small structures and common repairs and maintenance for down the road.

Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds even includes information on how to become a steward, getting the word out about your little structure once it's up and running, and tips for building a lively collection.

Community togetherness has never been so at the fore of our consciousness—or so important. Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds is one tool on the road to helping you build community in your neighborhood.

Cassandra's Review-  Awesome ideas and I would love to have a pre built one for my neighborhood.  I am not sure if I could really take on the project of building a tiny shed, but it looks so fun for a more advanced craftsman.  The whole concept is special and the book is really easy to follow.
