Adventures in Natural Childbirth by Janet Schwegel

Compared to birth stories on blogs, the accounts here are very polished and carefully composed...which is sometimes a problem. The writing is so effective that it almost makes it a challenge to read the book as birth prep; you feel what they’re talki ...more

The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

The world building frustrated me the entire time. If there are so many in world terms that I can’t imagine anything...it’s not an enjoyable read. Also, yes, there is an interesting female lead, but there were hundreds of pages of Bro-sy man problems ...more

A perfect interactive baby prep book for siblings. Absolutely love the solid biological grounding, especially with baby coming out “down” as if Mama is upright. The text is informative AND fun which is so hard to achieve. Wish I had found this sooner ...more

Little Miss, Big Sis by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Lots of cute...but a couple cringe-worthy illustration problems. Like two panels of a baby drinking a bottle all alone in a bassinet (not even a crib! So clearly a little baby). And an infant sleeping on two stacked pillows...I had to explain to my k ...more

Fame and Glory in Freedom, Georgia by Barbara O'Connor
Rate this book
Clear rating
Plain, funny, real characters from middle-to-low income households. At its heart, this book is about caretaking and community. It features an adult daughter caring for a dad who's had a stroke, a girl trying to befriend a boy everyone rejects, and a ...more
Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison
"I recently read Invisible Man by H.G. Wells and it has been very interesting to compare that book with this book.
