5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST for traveling!, July 14, 2015
This review is from: Demi Hugger Travel Strap
A MUST have travel accessory!

Necessity is the mother of all invention and has been since the beginning of time. A mom, who had so much to carry, invented...the Demi Hugger.

I expected the Demi Hugger to be a great help keeping small pieces of luggage attached to a large pice of luggage. But upon using it I realized it is better than that - the END all BE all GREAT help and you need one!! So versatile!

We pack light and take 2 large pieces of luggage along with one small carryon per person. This way, hubby can strap 2 carryons to the large pieces to free up my hands to wrangle the kids and tickets. We have tried many products like bungee cords and straps. If the straps were thin, and now that I think about it they all were, smaller items would often slip off. It was a constant balancing act.

Enter the Demi Hugger!

It has a wide band which covers a LOT of the item/suitcase/purse you are carrying which makes slipping worries a thing of the past. Small item? Tighten the Demi Hugger. Larger item? Loosen the Demi Hugger. It will fit most anything. Strong velcro keeps the hugger right where you put it.

I love that the Demi Hugger can be placed horizontally or vertically which makes it fit anything you need to lug around, from suitcases to the coats everyone sheds upon entering the building. When not in use they are soft, lightweight and easily stuffed into those outer zippers on the suitcase.

The Take Away:

*soft, stretchy, secure way to make lugging stuff easier

*great for grown ups and kids

*worth EVERY penny

This would make a fantastic gift for all of the travelers on your list. Buy the blingy 'mom' one or the plain Jane. Crafty customers can add decorations to personalize once you get them home! This might be the perfect landing spot for all the patches I've been collecting over the years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever twist on viewing art - LOVE, June 10, 2015
This book is an interesting twist on viewing art and makes for great conversation starters with kids. When you visit art museums, the experience is so much more fun when the kids studying the art and appreciate it - otherwise it can be rather dull. I write ebooks, travel guides for kids that give the background story behind the art - usually religion or mythology, but this is the first I've seen of this type of twist and I love it. What a clever idea!

Of course art teachers will love it, but so will language arts teachers as these would serve beautifully as story starters! Parents can read this book at home to discuss the concept of combining paintings they see to make interesting comparisons and stories before visiting the museum!

I see there are more books from these amazingly clever authors and I'm going to pick them up now! I love them and you will, too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for OLDER kids, June 10, 2015
This review is from: Brooklyn Bridge (Hardcover)
This book is lengthy but very informational. Worth getting for the pictures alone! The cross sections of how the bridge is anchored and how the workers went far below sea level to build the foundation are the best I've seen.

Read this book before heading to New York City with the kids so they can enjoy the bridge even MORE!

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Big Orange Splot (Paperback)
Absolutely one of my all time favorite books. I haven't seen it since I was using it to teach a lesson back in 1990 so when I came across it here I had to buy another copy. This feel good story book is about being yourself in a cookie cutter world. Great message for kid and adults alike. Live your own dream and let everyone else live theirs!

This book is adorable! It gives instructions in a VERY clear way so even your youngest 'magician to be' can understand. The graphics are fantastic.

Not only is a fun book for summer vacation and all the free time coming up but the tricks you learn would be loads of fun on a vacation. Think camping fun! Stuck on a train fun! A must addition to the kindle collection in my house!

5.0 out of 5 stars informative read before a trip to a museum, June 12, 2014
As a travel writer for guides for children, I am always looking for great literature to help bring alive cultures, experiences, and countries for kids. This book is an excellent way to prepare children for a trip to the museum. It give the kids an extra layer of understanding about the visit. Layering learning is important!

I'm adding this book to my personal collection and recommend it to anyone taking kids to an art museum.

Fantastic book!
