Children’s #Audiobook Review– Wombat and Jones: The Great Banana Mystery

Written by author Arran Francis, creator of multiple series for BBC's CBeebies Radio, Wombat & Jones: The Great Banana Mystery is a funny tale about friendship, problem-solving, and teamwork. Simple mistakes and jumping to conclusions can happen after all, but Wombat & Jones try their best to put it right and learn from them.

Book Spotlight and Blog Tour: Sometimes in Bath by Charles Nevin

Charles Nevin seems to have hit upon a promising idea: exploring the world of Bath through the use of fiction. I enjoy short stories, and I think it is very clever that each short story is followed by an afterword that separates the fact from the fiction. What a great way to teach history through the use of literature!

Book Review and Blog Tour: The Multicultural Church by Dan Willis

Despite the progress our country has made in Civil Rights over the past century, Sunday morning is still one of the most segregated times in America. It seems like the only people striving to lead in the area of racial reconciliation are politicians, activists, and celebrities. Pastor Dan Willis wants to know… Where is the church? What can the people of God do to become leaders again and not just be Johnny-come-lately followers?

Book Review: When Polly Met Olly

This was a light and breezy book to read and the story moved quickly. This is the first book that I've ever read by Zoe May, and I'm pleased to say that her writing style reminds me of Sophie Kinsella (another author whom I enjoy). My favorite thing about this book was the creative concept. It was a very cute premise and a fun story.

Happy Publication Day: High Heels and Beetle Crushers, a Womanist Cold War Memoir by Jackie Skingley

Skingley's book is a compelling memoir of post-war Britain and her experience there as a woman in the armed forces. I am particularly interested in reading this book because I enjoy reading about strong female leaders who aren't afraid to chase their dreams. The world needs more women who lead, and Skingley's story is an important piece of modern history.
