How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell
Rate this book
Clear rating
A clever, quick read about Hiccup and the dragon Toothless. The movie is vastly different from the book but both are great in their own right. The book certainly has its weaknesses but for light children's fiction, it's enjoyable.

Physics of the Future by Michio Kaku
Rate this book
Clear rating
An interesting set of educated predictions about the future. The book was too repetitive though. Dr. Kaku could have cut it in half and still covered the information well.

Read out loud to my daughter. This book was written to be read aloud. I doubt I'll attempt to read all the Redwall books but this first was interesting.
