His Favorite Inconvenience: A Holiday Novella (His Favorite Series) by by Sydney Strand
Sera Calhoun is a fashion major at college and almost home to her dad and step family for Thanksgiving. Since she bailed at the altar of her wedding, and left college with just 3 credits to get she was looking forward to the grant that the Black Ventures Company was offering.
Her blog was her success now. The story also follows Dane Anderson-Sera's step brother. He works for Harrison Black, giving him direction on which charity to support.
They do get to know one another a little better as she's there at the same house, helping his mother and blogging waiting to hear if she'll be accepted. Liked hearing of the canal-that was one place we didn't travel to when we were in Las Vegas.
They do become close at times but separate all the same. Loved hearing of her business plans.
In time they all learn some important facts and it could be the miracle they all need. Author's other works are highlighted at the end.
I received this book from the author via Booklikes Blog Contest.
101 Great Science Experiments Paperback by Neil Ardley
Lots of categories to choose from. my favorite would be colors.
Looking through the book there are bound to be ones we can make right away. Otherwise we will find one that we like and make a list of things to buy at the store.
Water displacement was a fun one to do using marbles just gotten at Christmas.
I think I will also get the nature experiments as well..
Farm Animals for Kids: Amazing Pictures and Fun Fact Children Book (Discover Animals Series by Betty Johnson
What I like about this book is that it gives a page about the animal stating what they do on the farm and parts of the body that are different than other animals parts.
There is also a quiz at the end to make sure you are understanding what you are reading. Colorful pages will keep any child really interested in this book and they won't even realize they are learning new things.
There are also facts about the noise the animal makes and where they live among other things. Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.
I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
