5.0 out of 5 stars Charming book with lovely illustrations, November 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The lyrical rhymes in this charming story are almost musical themselves, perfectly complementing the gorgeous images. The illustrations are crisp and evocative. Having been in marching band myself, years ago, I've been to many a parade - and I know it's definitely the music that carries the day! As the young boy dreams of all the possible ways he could be a part of the band, young readers will be introduced to different instruments. For parents, this means a great opening to talk about each of those instruments and music in general. A sweet book that children and parents alike will love.

My Own Magic
My Own Magic
by Kim Votry
Edition: Paperback
7 used & new from $9.74

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful introduction to writing for students - or adults!, November 13, 2013
This review is from: My Own Magic (Paperback)
As a homeschooling parent, Ms. Votry has a keen sense of what it takes to engage students in the process of learning. This shines through in her writing as the students in her novel are very engaged in the process of creating their own books. In My Own Magic, a mysterious (and perhaps dangerous??) teacher appears to take a classroom through the process of "NaNoWriMo," National Novel Writing Month. Students encounter challenges and make discoveries about their own writing - and their own writer's blocks. This is a great way to introduce students to the idea of writing, whether for fun or as a career, to help them understand the process and components of a novel, and to spark the imaginations of a future generation of authors.

Coins In The Fountain

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful way with words!, November 13, 2013
At a crossroads in her life, the author embarked on a somewhat unexpected journey to Rome for four years with the U.N. Her "leap into the unknown" provides the reader with a vivid look at her escape. Works' descriptions made me want to research more about Rome - she has a delightful way with words, a keen turn of phrase. I was thrilled, too, to find some recipes sprinkled informally throughout the narrative. Coins in the Fountain is filled with intimate details of Works' day-to-day life in Italy, things you won't find in guide books, such as the admonition always to buy flowers in odd numbers when giving them as gifts; even is considered unlucky. A lovely, enjoyable read!
