In Every House, in Every Street by Jess Hitchman

Sunday, July 5, 2020 Children's  No comments

  In every house, on every street  by Jess  Hitchman, for children there is laughter and tears. There are friends. There is family. And there is love.
A heartwarming celebration of homes…

My Thoughts

We love to travel and discover new countries around the world, but for the last 3 months we’ve been closed at home, yes, like most of the people around the world. Our house has stopped being simply a “house” but a place for adventures, discoveries and travels. And I felt that this is what this book tries to represent, this “new world” to the little ones, because the house we always used as something to breath between the daily activities has now a different job, being all the world and places that we could visit/stay for the last months.
I felt that this book was a way to teac...

The Right Time a Novel by Danielle Steel

Thursday, July 9, 2020 Novel  No comments

The Right Time  a Novel by Danielle Steel,   Alexandra Cortez Winslow had long black hair, creamy skin and large green eyes which she kept squeezed shut as her parents argued.  It was that way after her mother got bored and she wanted to leave.  When she left they never knew when she was coming home again.  Alex, as she was called by her father,  was her constant care giver, always sent her to her room when there was going to be an arguement between her parents.

The time she spent with her father was near and dear to her heart.  She loved the stories he would read to her.  He started her off with books like Nancy Drew, Agatha Christie, Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot . Which I read as  well.  The older she got the more she would get into thrillers...

About The Book

ANNA  a Novel by Laura Guthrie.  Every cloud has a silver lining… doesn’t it? Anna is thirteen years old, lives in London with her father, and has Asperger’s syndrome.  When her father dies, she moves to Scotland to live with her estranged, reclusive mother.  With little support to help her  in, she must use every coping strategy her father taught her—especially her ‘Happy Game’—as she tries to connect with her mother, discover her past, and deal with the challenges of being thrown into a brand new life along the way.
