God Loves Daddy and Me

God Loves Daddy and Me

On 4/18 Literarytimeout wrote: My 4 year old and 6 year old were really excited when I got this in the mail. We read it right away, multiple times. First my 6 year old read it to my 4 year old (which kind of melted my heart) and then I read it to both of them, and then we read our favorite parts again and again. My 4 year old keeps ...

For Love and Honor

For Love and Honor

On 4/10 Literarytimeout wrote: Beautiful cover, no? It makes me want to pick up this book and read the back to make sure it sounds as good as it looks. Maybe someday I won't judge a book by it's cover, but I just really really appreciate a good looking one :) While this is book three in the An Uncertain Choice series, I feel like ...

God is Watching Over You

God is Watching Over You

On 3/15 Literarytimeout wrote: My two youngest were excited to get this book in the mail today, and insisted that we read it right away. We actually read it completely through twice, and then my youngest kept picking certain parts and saying, "Read that!" I asked them (5 and 3 year olds) what they liked about the book and my five ...

Goodnight, Manger

Goodnight, Manger

On 3/2 Literarytimeout wrote: When I first read Goodnight, Ark I loved it, so I jumped at the change to read Goodnight, Manger. While it's a cute little story, it fell a little flat for me. Probably because I was thinking it was going to be a Christmas story, but while it uses aspects from the Christmas story, likes angels and wise ...

Thank You, Lord, For Everything

Thank You, Lord, For Everything

On 9/22 Literarytimeout wrote: What a fun rhyming book! Not only that, but the pages are illustrated beautifully and are full of color and lots of details. I read this to two four year olds and they both really liked the book. I asked what their favorite thing about it was and one said the pages (meaning the illustrations) and the ...

Goodnight, Ark

Goodnight, Ark

On 8/31 Literarytimeout wrote: Okay, so I'm always a little hesitant with children's stories that are religious. Are they going to teach what I believe, are the from the version of the Bible that I read, are they correct, are they too preachy, etc. However, the only thing I can say about Goodnight, Ark is that it is super cute! I ... Book Review: Goodnight, Ark by Laura Sassi illustrated by Jane Chapman

An Uncertain Choice

An Uncertain Choice

On 5/12 Literarytimeout wrote: I was skeptical starting this book, even though what I've read previously from this author I really liked. Plus, I enjoy the cover, so I'm not sure why I was skeptical. Maybe it was the the fact it was geared toward teens, but whatever the reason there was no reason for the skepticism because I was pulled ... Book Review: An Uncertain Choice by Jody Hedlund

A Plague of Unicorns

A Plague of Unicorns

On 2/18 Literarytimeout wrote: My eight year old son really enjoyed this novel, and would look forward to me reading a chapter or two every night (most of the chapters are super short). Maybe it's because kids have more imagination than I do, but I was really hoping there would be...more to the story. I loved the premise. I loved ... Book Review: A Plague of Unicorns by Jane Yolen

It Will be Okay

It Will be Okay

On 1/9 Literarytimeout wrote: I'll admit I was a little iffy when I picked this book to review. Sometimes Christian Children's stories can be....a little cheesy. But the cover did grab my attention with it's cuteness, and it made me wonder why a fox would try to shelter a seed in the rain. Plus, "Trusting God through fear and change" ...

Secrets of Sloane House

Secrets of Sloane House

On 11/23 Literarytimeout wrote: I don't think I was expecting this book to be soo....dark. Not dark in a, um...dark way :) but dark in all the bad, horrible things that took place at that time. I was expecting a lighter mystery and wasn't really prepared for the rape scene that took place. Scene is probably not the correct word to ... Book Review: Secrets of Sloane House by Shelley Gray

The Princess Spy

The Princess Spy

On 11/9 Literarytimeout wrote: Where to start...where to start. Let's start with the less important, but still fun part. The cover! Who ever designs Melanie's covers does an amazing job. All of them are beautiful, but this one I think is my favorite because of all the color. It's eye catching and totally something I would pick up ...

Conrad and the Cowgirl Next Door

On 10/12 Literarytimeout wrote: I love a good children's book. Especially one that all of my children (from 9-1) will sit down and listen to (okay, not necessarily the 1 yr. old...but she sits for a little while). Conrad and the Cowgirl Next Door is one of those books. It has bright colorful pictures that are fun to look at, and they ... Book Review: Conrad and the Cowgirl Next Door

Prelude for a Lord

Prelude for a Lord

On 9/29 Literarytimeout wrote: Sigh....You know you have just read a good book when it's over and you keep thinking about it. Prelude for a Lord was just what I wanted. It had all the elements that made me happy. Alethea and Dommick are great, not perfect (because where would be the fun in reading that?), which made me like them even ...
