In The Berenstain Bears’ Easter Blessings our little cuties are encouraged to put first things first. To understand that candy and eggs come after the celebration of the reason for Easter worship. Most importantly, at the end of the story Preacher Brown shares the greatest blessing.
Elizabeth Camden has a pleasant writing style and an imagination which created an enjoyable story. Until the Dawn is filled with mystery, intrigue, the value of family, tolerance, sin, and salvation. A bit of romance too ;).
Thin Ice is a sweet romantic mystery that had me guessing until it was laid out for me. I found all of the characters easy to engage with and Irene Hannon did a fantastic job of bringing out my emotions in response to their personalities and situations.
As much as I would like to I cannot recommend After the Rain.
Fourth-grader Channing is one fast, run-on sentence. I love it. She is a little whirling dervish; quirky, zany, but a wee bit jealous and she has a bit of an issue with misplaced blame as most fourth graders tend to do.
If this book were not placed within the Christian fiction genre I would not take such issue with it. It is when fallacy, in it’s filthy ugly rags, purports itself as the pure and holy truth that our combined hackles should be raised.
The Brontë Plot is full of texture and light. Like an old, faded, priceless antique photo the contrast is reduced but you are left with a feeling of curiosity mixed with wonder and awe. It is modern yet timeless; containing layers upon layers of rich descriptive dialogue.
