How amazing! There are not enough books for young kids that encourage them to engage actively with the world, or teach them that they can make a difference. Explore the alphabet through excitement and actions, then spot a cat on every page. ~ Reviewed by Krysta Piccoli

Illusion of Separateness Simon Van Booy

A few months ago the bookstore received an Advance Readers Copy of Simon Van Booy’s newest book, The Illusion of Separateness. Fights broke out among several booksellers and, by some miracle, I was the second bookseller to get ahold of it (I swear I never threw a single punch). I read it in one sitting, as many of us did, not only because I couldn't put it down, but because putting it down mid-story, thus disrupting the flow, would have been a crime. A terrible, unspeakable crime.

The Illusion of Separateness is an intimate look at the tiny choices that connect us all. Readers get the story of multiple characters that are all seemingly connected in the present day through events that began during the Second World War. Each chapter is written with a different voice, telling the story of a fully-realized character that you can't help but empathize with. (READ MORE)

Offit provides scientific research to show how people pushing alternative medicines have taken advantage of the public's desperation for "natural" cures, but provide outrageously expensive, untested, unregulated, and often dangerous treatments. He explains that medicine has been hijacked by the media and celebrities claim to know better than doctors. ~ Reviewed by Krysta Piccoli
