5.0 out of 5 stars Renaissance Italy, June 24, 2016
This is another of Carole P. Roman’s If You Were Me… books that take the reader back in time. This time we visit Renaissance Italy. The book begins with a brief introduction to the present day Florence and then the emergence from the Middle Ages, poverty and isolation of the people, to the Renaissance era.

The story tells the life of a wealthy family with servants. It describes their life, work, food, clothing, habits and customs. There are brief bios of twelve famous people of that era. There also an emphasis on the art and artists of the time.

This is another great addition to the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ancient Greece, June 7, 2016
This is my first introduction into Carole P. Roman’s new series in which she not only takes us around the world, but also back in time.

These is much more information in this book than her current day If You Were Me books and are more for older children that will understand the time frame factor. There are also topics that are more appropriate for an older child, as in forms of government, war, prisoners, etc. I learned quite a bit about ancient Greece from her description of their meals, customs and lifestyle. There are unique topics that will fascinate children and create interest in learning more.

I did not care for the overemphasis on the Greek gods, with polytheism introduced on one page, a paragraph about each one of the gods individually on following pages, and then a two page list and explanation of all of them again.

I think this is a promising new series and something for the older child.

I received a copy of If You Were Me and Lived In...Ancient Greece in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you Were Me and Lived in…Egypt by Carole P. Roman, May 27, 2016
You will feel like you are on an around the world trip with Carole P. Roman’s If You Were Me and Lived In… series. This time the author gives us an introduction into the unique culture of Egypt. Yes, I would love to take a felucca down the Nile and nibble on some aish. Don’t worry if you find some strange words because there is a pronunciation guide next to each unique word and another at the end of the book with definitions included. As with the other books in this series, the focus is describing what children would want to know most. What would I eat, where would I go and what toys would I play with.

This is an interesting and educational series that I highly recommend for children, grandchildren, preschools, elementary age, and church missionary program.


The God Who Heals: Words of Hope for a Time of Sickness
The God Who Heals: Words of Hope for a Time of Sickness
Price: $9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars What a pleasure it has been to find the writings ..., May 24, 2016
What a pleasure it has been to find the writings of Johann Christoph Blumhardt (1805-1880) and his son Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt (1842-1919) through the published works by Plough Publishing House. I find their writings as fresh and relevant as if they were written today, and absolutely inspiring and encouraging. (It is edited by Charles E. Moore)

The God Who Heals is a devotional with 61 entries. Each starts with a Bible verse or passage, followed by an uplifting message. The messages are not just for those suffering physical illness because sickness is not always of the body, but also of heart, mind, or spirit.

Just a few of the chapter titles are “You Are Not Alone”, “When God Heals”, “Inner Healing and More”, and “God’s Promise Prevails”.

I am using it for my personal devotions, but it would also work for church groups or as a gift book. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This review is from: Rocket-Bye (Paperback)
Rocket-Bye is a pleasant and imaginative travel through space with a bedtime poem. As they fly, constellations are named. The watercolor illustrations are soft and appropriate for the calm-down time just before bedtime. While the pictures are pleasant, I think something in the pictures should be a little brighter to draw attention or focus on one thing.

This is another quality children’s book from this award-winning author.

It sounds more like a dog toy than a pheasant. My dog like it, but the pheasants on our property pretty much ignored it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Water!, May 2, 2016
​Cave Kiddos is a book specifically designed for children with learning difficulties. Beautifully illustrated, the book introduces the child to the characters, Alk, Haha, Lala, and Zee. The entire book is a vehicle to teach the child the word, Water. Some of the characters say Wa and some say Ter until the end when it fits together for Water.

Erik Jay Cash became interested in speech development while working with his children, both delayed speakers. I don’t even pretend to know anything about learning disabilities, so I will trust that this is an effective way to teach words to a PreK or K aged child. The only thing I would have liked is that there would be several words or a complete sentence included in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bearing Witness, April 14, 2016
Throughout the years men and women have suffered persecution for their witness of Christ. Bearing Witness is a look at 36 men and women ready to give their all, including their very lives to witness for Christ. Most tragic are the stories of brave souls standing for Christ only to be slain by others claiming to be Christians.

The book begins with the stoning of Stephen, the first to give his all for Christ, and the bystander, Saul who held the coats of those who stoned him. There are stories from around the world up to the most recent, the stories of those who died at the hands of Boko Haram.

These are important stories for us to remember and teach our children. Although we have had in the past an easy life of religious freedom in the United States, those days are gradually coming to a close. We need to be cautious as our country sets out to work against those of faith and we experience a political movement disguised as a religion creeping into the U.S.

I received a copy of Bearing Witness from Plough Publishing House in exchange for an honest review.
