I Love My Glam Ma brought back memories of hanging out in my grandma’s kitchen and helping her cook fabulous Italian meals. Many folks have a special name for their grandmas, and Berger begins with this premise. Glam-mas do a wide variety of things to help and entertain their grandchildren, and they do it with a style all their own. They can be cake bakers or fiesta makers, karate choppers or concert rockers. Each one brings a unique pizzazz to their role and this book celebrates that diversity. ~ Reviewed by Wendy Marie

A beautiful story that made me smile. It is about a young child exploring gender fluidity. Jessica Love’s colorful illustrations carry a sense of joy that engages children. The acceptance and support that the child receives from their family provides a good springboard for discussions dealing with societal conformity versus embracing who we truly are as individuals.

A powerful book that gives you a piece of history you might not be familiar with. Though not an all-encompassing/text-book look, it covers the history of flight in its early years. At the same time, giving you the story of (years before the Wright Brothers) a young Brazilian man who did much to get aviation to what we know today. These fantastic pictures also show how Santos became the rock-star of his time. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
