Review: The Moon Coin

The Moon Coin by Richard Due My rating: 4 of 5 stars I give 4 stars to books I enjoyed while reading and would probably read again. I think The Moon Coin has enough flavor and depth that I can read it again and get more out of it.For a feel of the beginning of The Moon Coin, picture what might come into being if you took C.S. Lewis and Dr. Seuss and locked them in a room until they wrote a book together. Got that? And then Dr. Seuss gets kicked out and the whole thing takes a rather J.R.R. ...

Review: Miri Attwater

Miri Attwater and the Ocean's Secret by E.S. Ivy My rating: 4 of 5 stars I give 4 stars to books I enjoyed while reading and think I can read over again and still enjoy.I read Miri Attwater and the Ocean's Secret with my 3rd grade daughter, and it was a big hit! The story follows 10-year-old Miri Attwater in her seemingly normal life as an unconfident 5th grader. Miri is afraid of pretty much anything to do with water (and slimy things), and trying new things makes her uncomfortable. So when ...
