#MMBBR #Review #RunningwithWolves Our Story of Life with the #SawtoothPack by @LWWolves via #partner @NatGeoBooks and #MediaMasters


39950913


Running with Wolves: Our Story of Life with the Sawtooth Pack (ages 9-12, $16.99, hardcover) by Jim & Jamie Dutcher ** excerpt attached **
On a clear, cold morning, Jim and Jamie Dutcher emerged from their campsite to come face to face with their only neighbors: a pack of wolves.  The leader, Kamots, intently moved closer — close enough to touch.  He was enormous, with powerful muscles, intelligent eyes and startlingly sharp teeth. But the Dutchers weren’t afraid.  And neither was Kamots; he drew close and gave a quick lick, as he did every morning — a greeting reserved only for kin.  Adventure, friendship, and family come together in this riveting memoir as two Emmy award-winning filmmakers take young readers into the world of a real-life wolf pack.  Jim and Jamie set out to prove that instead of fearsome beasts, wolves are social, complex, and incredible creatures that deserve our protection. Deep in the mountain wilderness of Idaho, they set up Wolf Camp, where they spent years capturing the emotional, exciting, and sometimes heartbreaking story of this amazing pack. Every chapter is filled with adventure of the highest order and Jim and Jamie weave a powerful and moving story — from the arrival of the first of the Sawtooth Pack to the tearful goodbye years later when Jim and Jamie knew their work was done, as painful a decision as that proved to be. Through first person narrative and an 8-page full color insert featuring the Dutcher’s photos, Jim and Jamie reveal how these brave wolves battled mountain lions, faced frigid temperatures and overcame all odds. Most of all, readers will discover the surprising kindness, compassion, and devotion that two humans experienced by living with wolves.



My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is amazing. My mind was literally blown. I could not stop reading this book and was sucked in right away. Both kids and adults will love learning about, following and being part of the Sawtooth Pack. I could not help but marvel at the beautiful way the wolves were captured and how they overcame so much. There is so much that was learned about wolves over the six years this book covered. This book really did capture how wolves are social and family focused. I will reread this book and I never reread. I cannot wait for my kids to read this too. They will also love it!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

#FirstLine ~ There are countless ways to fall in love and I'd begun my ash-destined affairs in myriad manners.

This book was so great. I loved the depth that Callahan can bring to her stories and the characters within them. She is so mindful of the little details, facts and history. Lisa Wingate called this book a "literary treasure" and I would have to agree 100% and find that description to be so perfectly fitting. Such a gift she has given us as readers. This book is sure to stay with you long after you finish reading it, which is a sign of a fantastic read! Book clubs will also find this book to be a perfect pick!

#FirstLine ~ The girl knew before she opened her eyes that Mama was gone.

This book is so speculator. I was just blown away. I was pulled into the originality, the characters, the setting and the dialogue. I was so interested in each and every character because they were all so well fleshed out. I was not sure how this amazing story was going to end. I want to see this made into a movie or a mini series because it is one of those stories that will translate to the big screen perfectly. There are many topics that will both touch your heart and make you think; both about your life and the impact you are making in the world. I am still processing this book because it was just so darn good! A must read and perfect for any season and for all book clubs!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is such a fun activity book that is jam packed with puzzles, coloring pages, stickers and facts galore. I love Bigfoot, kind of obsessed actually. As are my kids. We love having the debate: Is Bigfoot real? This book has been a fun way to spend the nights before bed. Challenging each other to find the complete the puzzles, color and so much more. It has become one of our favorite bedtime routines. It really never gets old. Plus, you get to talk about all the types of games and puzzles contained in this Bigfoot activity book, which adds ever more fun. A great book for the kids or the entire family.

About the book:
In this charming romantic comedy perfect for fans of Meg Cabot and Sophie Kinsella, critically acclaimed author Teri Wilson shows us that sometimes being pushed out of your comfort zone leads you to the ultimate prize. 

Charlotte Gorman loves her job as an elementary school librarian, and is content to experience life through the pages of her books. Which couldn’t be more opposite from her identical twin sister. Ginny, an Instagram-famous beauty pageant contestant, has been chasing a crown since she was old enough to enunciate the words world peace, and she’s not giving up until she gets the title of Miss American Treasure. And Ginny’s refusing to do it alone this time.

She drags Charlotte to the pageant as a good luck charm, but the winning plan quickly goes awry when Ginny has a terrible, face-altering allergic reaction the night before the pageant, and Charlotte suddenly finds herself in a switcheroo the twins haven’t successfully pulled off in decades.

Woefully unprepared for the glittery world of hair extensions, false eyelashes, and push-up bras, Charlotte is mortified at every unstable step in her sky-high stilettos. But as she discovers there’s more to her fellow contestants than just wanting a sparkly crown, Charlotte realizes she has a whole new motivation for winning.

The Accidental Beauty Queen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
#FirstLine ~ My sister has always been the pretty one.

I loved this book, it was such a great read. I loved that I could read and escape into a world I know nothing about, the pageant world! There was a lot of heart in this book, so much feel good goodness. There were characters worth rooting for, a story line worth getting lost in and I was able to experience all sorts of feelings while reading it. It was such a delight, a treat of a read, that left me very satisfied!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is awesome. As a huge Disney fan, it is fun to see what makes the villains we love to dislike so compelling. In this original and beautifully designed book (with colorful illustrations, flaps and full page gate-flaps) you will get to explore all the villains in all their infamous glory! You will learn their likes, dislikes, skills, education and so much more in a resume like layout with their own thoughts included. Such a fun and interesting book and one I really adore!
