This book is straight forward about a man who has been more or less been kicked around by history. People hate him, because he had slaves. People love him because he wrote the Deceleration of Independence. It goes back and forth enough that i wanted to know a little more. The greatest strength of this book is that it has no fluff. The author tries to say it all, while leaving his opinions out. The excerpts show the poetic beauty Jefferson wielded with his pen. (I, being a level 5 rouge and little grasp of poetry, had to reread his writings several times to understand what he was saying, but still can appreciate the way he said it.)
The story-lines seemed so familiar. The Story of Beautiful Girl was like a blend of The Memory Keeper's Daughter, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, Mount Misery, Shutter Island, and Room. Parts are written very well, but sadly, I can't go so far as to say that I enjoyed it. Continuing to read the book took more effort than usual.
This book was very enlightening for me. I guess I never knew there was German occupation in France during WWII. And, to find out that the French gathered up their own Jewish people was even more amazing. What a terrible time to have lived through. Tatiana de Rasnay did a great job of bringing this historical time to light. I loved how she intertwined Sarah's story with Julia's. Her writing drew me in and kept me wanting to unravel the mystery that she was trying to tell. As we discussed at book club, the holocaust is a compelling time to read about. This story shares a different side of this time period that many may not know about. It is the prefect mix of fiction and non-fiction.
I thought the Messenger was good. I liked how the author made the forest have emotions too, as well as people. I liked that the author described everything that happened in detail so that you could really get the feeling of the emotions that were going on in the story. The setting went from happy with to very gloomy, sad, and anger. The forest in the book was its own character. As things got bad in the book so did the forest. Matty was the only one that never got warned by the forest to not go back in. But when things got bad Matty had to go get his almost father's daughter Kira. The setting got very depressing and sad near this part. It was a very shocking story in the end. It was painful but still very good. I think the message of this story is that you may have to give yourself to save everyone from having pain and hurt.
The plot isn't the most solid of Gaiman's work, but it is enjoyable nonetheless, and the world he creates is immersive and interesting. the little what-ifs are quite wonderful, and you can easily imagine hundreds more stories that could be told here.
Brilliant, beautiful colors are all around us but sometimes they can be hard to see. Take a trip to the Mojave Desert as we visit Maya to search extra hard for the colors in her neighborhood. What will we find on our journey with her; vibrant purples of her Mama’s flowers, juicy greens of a prickly cactus, hot pink clouds at sunset? By 24 months, most children are able to sort items by their color, but learning colors comes first! You can practice every day by talking about all the colors you see in your world. The sky is blue, clouds are white and grass is green. Keep practicing! This was such a great book to get the children exited about the colors that they see around them, along with learning about a new culture and language!
I realize that sometimes my "children" bookshelf is a bit misleading. For the most part, I actually mean young adults. I think you can deal. I couldn't decide if I liked this or not. I think it was well-written, and I liked that the author resisted a neat and happy ending. The narrator, Alex, was a character I related to, even as an adult. My major problem with the book was that I just could not stand Stacy. She's one of those characters that are meant to come in a stir stuff up. I get this. However, I found her so obnoxious and frustrating (sort of like the best friend in Born Confused that it really kept me from liking Friction completely. I will say this, though: the author does a wonderful job of teaching the lesson that words matter, that they can be powerful and destroying, and must be carefully kept. I would certainly recommend this to mature teen readers, but teachers, if you have touchy parents, get approval first. This one is fairly brutal.
