Luann's Recent Updates

Think Big by Ben Carson
" What an admirable man Dr. Ben Carson is! I accept and believe the principles he teaches and lives by. This book is loaded with great standards to guide us through our lives. I particularly like his acrostic for the title of his book Think Big:

Luann liked a quote
Think Big by Ben Carson
“Reading activates and exercises the mind.
Reading forces the mind to discriminate. From the beginning, readers have to recognize letters printed on the page, make them into words, the words into sentences, and the sentences into concepts.
Reading pushes us to use our imagination and makes us more creatively inclined.”
Ben Carson

This is a much longer story than the other "belling the cat" story I've read: But Who Will Bell the Cats?. This is quite a bit longer than your typical picture book. It is perfect for children who are ready for chapter books but still want a picture ...more
Call the Midwife by Jennifer Worth
"It was an incredible read that was marred by an obscenely disgusting chapter right smack dab in the middle that made me have to question whether I should continue or not. I did continue after skimming past the incredibly gross part and was glad th..." Read more of this review »
Call the Midwife by Jennifer Worth
"I enjoyed this book, but I sort of wanted more. I think my biggest problem was simply that Worth focused too much on the "colorful" characters she lived with, when I would have preferred to have heard more of the actual birth stories! She also kep..." Read more of this review »
Call the Midwife by Jennifer Worth
"I decided to read this book because I recently watched the BBC/PBS show "Call the Midwife", which is based on the memoirs by Jennifer Worth. I absolutely fell in love with the TV show-- it has a perfect mix of happy and sad, with great characters...." Read more of this review »

I read an excerpt of this book for some school assignment many, many years ago. The writing was so vivid and the plot so interesting that I've always wondered what happened in the rest of the book. I never knew the title or the author, but when I cam ...more

It took this book a LOT of pages to win me over. I started it not wanting to read it at all. If it hadn't won the Newbery award for this year, I never would have picked it up. It just isn't my type of book. I don't care about basketball, and I really ...more

This book felt very real, which is understandable when you read in the author's note that it is "more memoir than fiction." It puts you right in the head of the 11-year-old substitute paperboy who is trying to deal with his stuttering problem while t ...more
