Rachel Kolar has taken the nursery rhymes we grew up with and has given them some bite. Unlike Miss Muffet, the witch eats that cheeky spider who sat down beside her. We will be howling with werewolves called Willie and Mary will be bringing a ghost to school instead of a silly old sheep. Thirteen spooky rhyming tales will get your blood pumping and your sides splitting with laughter. Mother Ghost is perfect for getting in the Halloween spirit. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Published: Reader's Digest Association - October 10th, 2017

Home for Chinese New Year is told in English and Chinese. The story is more mature and due to tone aimed at older children. The colors, while muted, fit the mood of the story perfectly. It is a story of trying to come home and how there is no sacrifice too big to make. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette


The Family Christmas Book Collection

Christmas is coming- we've had a little snow, carols are playing in every store, people are a little kinder to their neighbors. But for me the ultimate knowledge that the season is upon us is marked by one of my siblings carrying up the “Christmas box,” a gigantic appliance box circa 1982.
