Recently, being a teacher and having access to the school library, I have been given the privilege of have many book at my fingertips. This has given me the opportunity to not only get interesting children book for my kids to read with, but I also try to pick book that teach a lesson. When it is about learning to get along with others, sharing or understanding love... we all enjoy it.
For the kids I read to them A Sock Is a Pocket for Your Toes – by Elizabeth Garton Scanlon and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser.
This book was not only entertaining but the illustration was cute and appropriate. My favorite lines were....
Wide arms are pockets made for hugs,
And your heart is a pocket full of love –
My heart is a pocket full of love.
As for me .... I finally was able to make some ME time. I actually got time to rekindle with my kindle. I was finally able to read a Novella 'The Moonlit Mind' but Dean Koontz. This was recommended to me by my mother-in-law. She knows how I have recently becoming addicted to paranormal novels and seeing how it was novella then it was a quick and enjoyable read.
The description of the paranormal character was effective and to a point breath taking. The switching from the present to the past was engaging and had the ability to keep the reader's attention. There was a nice twist to the story line and I like the relationship the writer developed between the main character and his dog. To me the underlying meaning was the search for companionship and the length people went to achieve this.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and cannot wait to read Dean Koontz other book ... 'What the Night Knows' tonight.
