"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

From my much-older-than-seven year old perspective, I agree with her that this was just a spectacular book. It was charming and endearing, intense and suspenseful, amusing and whimsical. I found myself wondering if Mr. Scherer purposefully wove in the delightful alliterations to his exceptionally well-formed sentences.
While this book is aimed at children, Mr. Scherer holds high expectations for his young readers - a fact for which I applaud him. He introduces an elevated language, tough life-concepts, and edge-of-your-seat suspense, but keeps his content approachable. I will say that every time I came to a stop for bedtime, my daughter groaned and asked if we could read just a little bit more.
Bravo, Mr. Scherer. We can't wait to read book three.
Oh, and to you out there who are deciding if this book is worth a shot, I strongly recommend it.
This is a very good book. The characters are Death, Fear, Sunshine, Momsy, Pop, Auntie, and Fear's monsters. The reason I liked the book is because it's funny, crazy and exciting. The book is about a Darksmith girl who creates monsters when her stuffed animal bunny rabbit she calls Bunny gets mutated into a giant monster. He turns into her first creation.
My favorite part of the book is when one of Fear's monsters who was turned into the Darksmith girl's general, cheers a Darksmith chant. I would recommend this book 100% good. I am looking forward to going to comic-con again to get the second book or to have my dad buy it on the computer. He is on it right now.
It was fun to follow Sunshine as she dove into a pretty dark adventure--mostly because she, herself, isn't dark at all. Packed with humor and love, this story takes a delicious twist on monsters and all those things which go bump in the night. It's great for kids; there are fearful monsters, but that doesn't mean they all really need to be feared. Sunshine is accompanied by a terrific cast of friends to help her along her way, ones kids will wish they could meet too. The strength of friendship and working together will leave kids with a sunny feeling inside.
The writing is well done, and there are wonderful illustrations sprinkled through out the story. I'm always glad to see these in books for this age group.
I can only recommend this to kids 8+ and bet they'll dream of building monsters themselves.
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
