    Story

    As an adult who works extensively with developmentally and physically disabled children and adults... I applaud this book. Simply but beautifully told account of Auggie, who with his facial anomalies leaves the cocoon of homeschooling to attend 5th grade. Well rounded point of views help the reader to understand how this disability affects friends, siblings, parents and teachers. Uplifting, clean read with a few sad spots and some really funny parts too. Nicely done!

    August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school - until now. He’s about to enter fifth grade at Beecher Prep, and if you’ve ever been the new kid, then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie’s just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, despite appearances?R. J. Palacio has crafted an uplifting novel full of wonderfully realistic family interactions, lively school scenes, and writing that shines with spare emotional power.

    Story

    Messenger is actually the end to Gathering Blue and ties the three books together. You need to have read the other two for it to make sense. The Giver to me is the classic and although I am glad to have read the other two, they do not reach as deep or as high for me. Gathering Blue felt unfinished, the end is here in Messenger... but Messenger is short and leaves lots and lots of loose ends unsatisfied for me as well. That said Lois is an incrediable writer and I love her themes, mind and creativty.

    Six years earlier, Matty had come to Village as a scrappy and devious little boy. Back then, he liked to call himself "the Fiercest of the Fierce." But since that time, Matty has grown almost into a man under the care of Seer, a blind man whose special sight had earned him the name. Now Matty hopes that he will soon be given his true name, and he hopes it will be Messenger. But strange changes are taking place in Village.

    Story

    Can't even begin to explain why I purchased a child's book, that I didn't choose to have my children read in the 80's when it came out. Perhaps just for the fun of listening to Kate Winslet... her narration is spot-on perfect. I (an adult) had a lot of fun listening to this quirky little tale centered around the precocious 6 year old Matilda... but I would still be very cautious about offering to younger children, sensitive children, or ones that might impulsively imitate her behavior or the language of the adults in the book. Cast includes Matilda's abusive, dishonest and neglectful parents, a horribly abusive school principle (throwing children, locking them in a nail studded locker for hours, lots of verbal abuse) and a lovely school teacher and librarian. Safety issues bothered me, like Matilda walking to library daily without parents knowing, going to the "lovely teacher's" home without anyone knowing. Plot also includes "revenge pranks" that could have seriously hurt someone (like putting peroxide into father's hair tonic). Everyone's kids are different, just worth a preview and assessment.

    Performance
    Story

    Although it has been a few years, my children who are teens still remember these books. We always listened to them on car rides to Cape Cod. I use to have to download the audio books and then burn them onto CDs. Now I just play my ipod through the blue tooth connection on my car. Although the technology has changed, these books are classic. One of the best attributes is that you and your children can learn some big new words. Its great for vocabulary building. If you have a long drive your kids will sit there and listen to these books for hours on end. Since you will be trapped in the car with them, you will also have to like books. I enjoyed listening just as much as they did.

    Story

    Although it has been a few years, my children who are teens still remember these books. We always listened to them on car rides to Cape Cod. Now that they are teens, they sit in isolation each plugged into their own audio device. So if you have children from 6 to 12 and have a long car ride planned or drive with your kids on a regular basis, listen to this series. You should start with book #1, they are a hard listen out of order. At 5 hours in length you can make it pretty far down the highway.

    Story

    As a family we listened to all the Lemony Snicket books. Although it has been a few years, my children who are teens still remember these books. If you have a long drive your kids will sit there and listen to these books for hours on end. Since you will be trapped in the car with them, you will also have to like books. I enjoyed listening just as much as they did. I remember when we finished this book, my kids were quite sad that they would be no more. The ending was slightly weird and it seems as nothing was really resolved.


    We liked the Tim Curry narrations better than the author narrations.

  • "Rectifying Revisionist History ...f..."

    13 of 18 helpful votes

    The strong point of this book is that it is a lesson in American history that gives a viewpoint that is not taught to our children any more. The Plymouth Colony first tried a socialistic work arrangement but had to resort to a reward system to motivate the people to do the necessary work. In these dark times when we are witnessing the European Socialist states implode under the weight of their unsustainable welfare yet still see the progressive creep toward the same failed system here on our shores.

    As a work of fiction, this short book is clearly a piece is targeting young skulls full of mush. But as a history lesson it is very accessible for kids and it presents a message I want my kids to know.

    Rush Limbaugh, well-known for his flowing speech when speaking unscripted off the cuff, here gives a strangely stilted reading of his own words. But there is a certain appeal to having the text read by the author.

    One of the greatest gifts we can give other human beings is to listen to them. Listening to children helps them feel safe enough to share their feelings, worries and what is true for them. Granny Greeny is the best listener we know. She listens with her whole body: with eyes that never leave your face, with a head that never moves, with hands that don't fidget, with feet that never tap, and with a heart filling with love.

He even becomes a celebrity when his podcast gets noticed by a sports radio host, who plays Charlie's fantasy picks for all of Los Angeles to hear.
