#MMBBR #Reviews A Walk in the Forest #StickerBooks #Garden #Birds @PAPress @maria_dek #OliviaCosneau



A Walk in the Forest by [Dek, Maria]

A Walk in the Forest is a stunning invitation to discover the woods as a place for both imaginative play and contemplation: collect pinecones, feathers, or stones; follow the tracks of a deer; or listen to the chirping of birds and the whisper of trees. Build a shelter and play hide-and-seek. Pretend the woods are a jungle, or shout out loud to stir up the birds! The forest comes alive in all its mysterious glory in Maria Dek's charming watercolor images and poetic text.

MY REVIEW:
A gorgeous and brilliant story that made my heart so happy!  I cannot wait to share this beautifully illustrated story about the spender of the forest with my own children and with the young kids in my classes.  This book is one of those books that is simple in text, but the illustrations and content create a book that is big in heart and adventure.  Any child and adult will get lost in the pictures.   There are endless ways to apply this book to creative and artistic learning activities.  You could have a child write a poem about an illustrated page, you could have them draw a picture of something they may find in the forest, you could have then all make a tree and create a forest...just to name a few!  I am so very excited about this fantastic book!  It is a must read and would make a great addition to your home library.  





What's more fun or magical than digging in the dirt, planting and watering seeds, discovering the first seedlings of the season, and finally eating your own fruits and vegetables? 

Lovingly illustrated by Olivia Cosneau, this book is a colorful introduction to the magical world of the garden, including a range of fun activities, removable stickers, and a quiz. In the process, fledgling gardeners ages five and up learn about the different types of vegetables and fruits they can grow, how to care for them, what tools they need, and many other interesting facts.

MY REVIEW:
This sticker book is a walk through the garden teaching the reader the difference between underground vegetables, root vegetables and flower vegetables.  The reader also gets to learn the difference between fruits and vegetables and so much more.  There are beautiful and colorful stickers and illustrations that allow the reader to interact with the book while learning about gardening and the glory of growing things we can eat as well as the creatures that help and hinder the process.  There are also some places where the reader can color the pictures as well as place stickers based on the instructions.  It is a delightful and fun way to learn about birds.  I highly recommend this for summer fun or long car kids!





With their colorful feathers, beautiful songs, power of flight, and dinosaur ancestry, birds are truly astonishing creatures. But did you know that the huge variety of known species includes daring acrobats, inconsiderate noisemakers, ruthless hunters, wonderful swimmers, and blazing runners? Or that the tiniest bird in the world measures just two inches long? 

Beautifully illustrated by Olivia Cosneau, Birds of the World introduces aspiring ornithologists to these and other fun facts through a range of coloring activities, removable stickers, and a short quiz. In the process, children learn about the rich variety of birds living in our world, including nightingales, swallows, hummingbirds, pelicans, penguins, parrots, toucans, and flamingos, among others.

MY REVIEW:
I am OBSESSED with birds.  I love them.  I love watching them, reading about them and listening to their songs.  This sticker book is a collection of bird facts and beautiful and colorful stickers and illustrations that allow the reader to interact with the book while learning about all types of birds.  There are also some places where the reader can color the pictures as well as place stickers based on the instructions.  It is a delightful and fun way to learn about birds.  I highly recommend this for summer fun or long car kids!

MY REVIEW:
First, are you kidding me with those adorable faces of the puppy, chicks and monkey!!!  I cannot stop looking that them.  What an amazing book cover.  That is only the outside, what is inside is even more amazing!  Animal Bites is a fun way to title this book, as my son pointed out, because this book provides us bites of information.  I adored the fact that there is a key in the front cover as how to use the book.  This allows the reader to easily find areas of interest and go directly to that spot to read.  There are so many categories that there is certainly something of interest for everyone.   Also, the table of content, activities and resources, glossary and index all add to details within this book.

#MMBBR #Review Allie and Bea by @cryanhyde ‏#LakeUnionPublishing #FirstLine


Bea has barely been scraping by since her husband died. After falling for a telephone scam, she loses everything and is forced to abandon her trailer. With only two-thirds of a tank in her old van, she heads toward the Pacific Ocean with her cat—on a mission to reclaim what’s rightfully hers, even if it means making others pay for what she lost.
When fifteen-year-old Allie’s parents are jailed for tax fraud, she’s sent to a group home. But when her life is threatened by another resident, she knows she has to get out. She escapes only to find she has nowhere to go—until fate throws Allie in Bea’s path.
Reluctant to trust each other, much less become friends, the two warily make their way up the Pacific Coast. Yet as their hearts open to friendship and love from the strangers they meet on their journey, they find the courage to forge their own unique family—and begin to see an imperfect world with new eyes.


#FirstTime ~  For perhaps the twentieth time that morning, Bea narrowed her eyes at the checkbook sitting on her kitchen counter.

What a heartwarming story that will make you believe in the beauty of chance encounters and friendship.  Catherine Ryan Hyde is brilliant when it comes to creating characters that are real, authentic and worthy of their story being told.  She fleshes them out, blends so much of the human heart into her stories.  I adored how you want to keep reading well past your bedtime, like I did last night.  I wanted to make sure that I shared this AMAZING book today on its pub day!  Do not relay, buy this book today!!!

#MMBBR #Highlight #FirstLine ~ Death at Breakfast by @BethGutcheon @Morrow_PB @WmMorrowBks @HarperPerennial


 From the acclaimed author of Still MissingMore Than You Know, and Gossip comes the first entry in a stylish and witty mystery series featuring a pair of unlikely investigators—a shrewd novel of manners with a dark heart of murder at its center, set in small-town New England.


Retired New York City private school head Maggie Detweiler and her old friend, society matron Hope Babbin, are off on a weeklong vacation to Maine, to visit Hope’s son and attend a master cooking class at the picturesque Oquossoc Mountain Inn. The worst tragedy they anticipate is a boring fellow guest or a fallen souffl√©. 


But their quiet idyll is disrupted by the arrival at the inn of a boorish couple, Alexander and Lisa Antippas, and Lisa’s sister, Glory. Imperious Hollywood one-percenters, Alex and Lisa are also the parents of the latest pop sensation, teen icon Artemis. Discord enters with the family, closely followed by disaster. When a suspicious late-night fire at the inn is brought under control, Alex’s charred body is found in the ashes. 


Enter the local deputy sheriff, Buster Babbin, who is Hope’s long-estranged son and a former student of Maggie’s. Buster needs a success, and Hope and Maggie, informed by a lifetime of observing human nature, coupled with a certain cynicism about small town justice and a healthy dose of curiosity, decide there is role for them to play here.


A psychological puzzle set in scenic small-town New England, Dead at Breakfast is a wickedly engaging entertainment from bestselling Beth Gutcheon.

#FirstLine ~  Maggie Detweiler, new-minded woman of leisure and not at all sure she was  going to like it, had no sense of impending tragedy as she posed in front of the broad stone veranda of the Oquossoc Mountain Inn that bright October morning.

Beth Gutcheon

Beth Gutcheon grew up in western Pennsylvania. She was educated at Harvard where she took an honors BA in English literature. She has spent most of her adult life in New York City, except for sojourns in San Francisco and on the coast of Maine.

Several of her novels have been national bestsellers, including the most recent, Leeway Cottage. All of the novels are available in new uniform paperback editions from HarperPerennial.

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“Thrilling . . . [told] with gonzo √©lan . . . When the sommelier and blogger Madeline Puckette writes that this book is the Kitchen Confidential of the wine world, she’s not wrong, though Bill Buford’s Heat is probably a shade closer.” —Jennifer Senior, The New York Times
"Think: Eat, Pray, Love meets Somm." —theSkimm

As informative as it is, well, intoxicating. Fortune


Professional journalist and amateur drinker Bianca Bosker didn’t know much about wine—until she discovered an alternate universe where taste reigns supreme, a world of elite sommeliers who dedicate their lives to the pursuit of flavor. Astounded by their fervor and seemingly superhuman sensory powers, she set out to uncover what drove their obsession, and whether she, too, could become a “cork dork.” 

With boundless curiosity, humor, and a healthy dose of skepticism, Bosker takes the reader inside underground tasting groups, exclusive New York City restaurants, California mass-market wine factories, and even a neuroscientist’s fMRI machine as she attempts to answer the most nagging question of all: what’s the big deal about wine? What she learns will change the way you drink wine—and, perhaps, the way you live—forever.

Two decades ago, Adam Sharp’s piano playing led him into a passionate relationship with Angelina Brown, an intelligent and strong-willed actress. They had a chance at something more―but Adam didn’t take it.
Now, on the cusp of turning fifty, Adam likes his life. He’s happy with his partner Claire, he excels in music trivia at quiz night at the local pub, he looks after his mother, and he does the occasional consulting job in IT. But he can never quite shake off his nostalgia for what might have been.
And then, out of nowhere, from the other side of the world, Angelina gets in touch. What does she want? Does Adam dare to live dangerously?
Set to the soundtrack of our lives, The Best of Adam Sharp follows along with emotion and humor as one man looks back on his past and decides if having a second chance is worth the risk.

MY REVIEW:
Brilliant and fun with a satisfying ending THE BEST OF ADAM SHARP is the must read for summer.  It will have you jamming to music, embracing life and smiling!!!

New York Times bestselling author Edan Lepucki's Woman No. 17 "reads like a Hollywood HIlls film noir."  Seattle Times
 
High in the Hollywood Hills, writer Lady Daniels has decided to take a break from her husband. Left alone with her children, she’s going to need a hand taking care of her young son if she’s ever going to finish her memoir. In response to a Craigslist ad, S arrives, a magnetic young artist who will live in the secluded guest house out back, care for Lady’s toddler, Devin, and keep a watchful eye on her older, teenage son, Seth. S performs her day job beautifully, quickly drawing the entire family into her orbit, and becoming a confidante for Lady. 
 
But in the heat of the summer, S’s connection to Lady’s older son takes a disturbing, and possibly destructive, turn. And as Lady and S move closer to one another, the glossy veneer of Lady’s privileged life begins to crack, threatening to expose old secrets that she has been keeping from her family. Meanwhile, S is protecting secrets of her own, about her real motivation for taking the job. S and Lady are both playing a careful game, and every move they make endangers the things they hold most dear. 
 
Darkly comic, twisty and tense, this mesmerizing new novel defies expectation and proves Edan Lepucki to be one of the most talented and exciting voices of her generation.

Kevin Kwan, bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians and China Rich Girlfriend, is back with an uproarious new novel of a family riven by fortune, an ex-wife driven psychotic with jealousy, a battle royal fought through couture gown sabotage, and the heir to one of Asia's greatest fortunes locked out of his inheritance.

The entire Shang-Young clan has convened from all corners of the globe to stake claim on their matriarch’s massive fortune. With each family member vying to inherit Tyersall Park—a trophy estate on 64 prime acres in the heart of Singapore—Nicholas’s childhood home turns into a hotbed of speculation and sabotage. As her relatives fight over heirlooms, Astrid Leong is at the center of her own storm, desperately in love with her old sweetheart Charlie Wu, but tormented by her ex-husband—a man hell bent on destroying Astrid’s reputation and relationship. Meanwhile Kitty Pong, married to China’s second richest man, billionaire Jack Bing, still feels second best next to her new step-daughter, famous fashionista Colette Bing. A sweeping novel that takes us from the elegantly appointed mansions of Manila to the secluded private islands in the Sulu Sea, from a kidnapping at Hong Kong’s most elite private school to a surprise marriage proposal at an Indian palace, caught on camera by the telephoto lenses of paparazzi, Kevin Kwan's hilarious, gloriously wicked new novel reveals the long-buried secrets of Asia's most privileged families and their rich people problems.

MY REVIEW:
