Suzy Snowflake  by Angela Muse
Illustrated very colorful children's book about winter and snow.
Love snowflakes and how each one is different. Just the cover captivated my attention along with the penguin on the front.
Suzy notices as it's winter and she's skating with others like her that she is different and prays to God.
She also talks to Frost her friend and together they understand it's OK to be different.

The First Thanksgiving: The Mayflower, Pilgrims, American Indians and Giving Thanks by Ifeanyi Esimai
I am very familiar with the tale and wanted to be sure it's accurate. I do knit for the Plimoth Plantation interpreters.
Love this version as it talks about the people who left England and arrived in America and the Indians shared food and ideas and helped them start their new life.
Very colorful pictures and lots of rhyming words.
There are other works of the author at the end of this book to check out.

Children's Book: I Love to Brush My Teeth (Jimmy and a Magical Toothbrush - Kids book for ages 2-6) (Bedtime stories children's books collection) by Shelley Admant
This children's book has few pictures but the ones there are very colorful. Each of the three bunnies has a favorite color and everything they have is that color.
Jimmy loves orange and one morning each of them gets a new toothbrush. It is magical and knows if you brushed your teeth. It talks to Jimmy and tries to get him to brush his teeth and tells him what will happen if he does not-teeth will turn yellow and a terrible odor in his mouth and food will not go in his mouth.
Jimmy throws the toothbrush into a corner in the bathroom to get rid of it. He goes to eat his breakfast....
The sandwich jumped into his brothers plate and Jimmy bit his fingers instead...
Not only that but other food his mother tried to give him, then he goes out to play with his friends...He knows what he has to do next...
Other books of the author are highlighted at the end.

Holiday Recipes: Quick Easy Recipes for the Holidays by Alexa Cookster
Lots of easy and quick recipes for any feast on your table. Lots of categories.
So many of the appetizers are ones we serve for a feast, glad to see they make the cut-they are easy to make and very quick.
Very colorful pictures of the item being baked. My favorite would be the cranberry muffins.

Beyond Gifted Education Designing and Implementing Advanced Academic Programs by Scott Peters, Michael Matthews, Matthew McBee and Betsy McCoach
I was interested in this book mostly for the welfare of my grandson's education as he's been placed in a specialized classroom just recently.
I was so glad to read that not only do you go by the test results but don't rely on them specifically for placement of the child in a gifted classroom.
People can determine if the child needs to be there without test scores. The references, resources found in this book are superior to the subject and I found the book easy to follow along.
It starts with having a plan and not only sticking to it but modifying it for each child.
I received this book from Library Thing in exchange for my honest review.
