New Facts About The Iconic 'Sweater Girl'!
Lana Turner: Hearts and Diamonds Take Al... Lana Turner: Hearts and Diamonds Take All (Blood Moon's Babylon Series) - Darwin Porter,Danforth Prince

Lana Turner: Hearts and Diamonds Take All belongs on the shelves of any collection strong in movie star biographies in general and Hollywood evolution in particular, and represents no lightweight production, appearing on the 20th anniversary of Lana Turner's death to provide a weighty survey packed with new information about her life.

 

One would think that just about everything to be known about The Sweater Girl would have already appeared in print, but it should be noted that Lana Turner: Hearts and Diamonds Take All offers many new revelations not just about Turner, but about the movie industry in the aftermath of World War II.

 

From Lana's introduction of a new brand of covert sexuality in women's movies to her scandalous romances among the stars, her extreme promiscuity, her search for love, and her notorious flings - even her involvement in murder - are all probed in a revealing account of glamour and movie industry relationships that bring Turner and her times to life.

 

Some of the greatest scandals in Hollywood history are intricately detailed on these pages, making this much more than another survey of her life and times, and a 'must have' pick for any collection strong in Hollywood history in general, gossip and scandals and the real stories behind them, and Lana Turner's tumultuous career, in particular.

Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type - Doreen Cronin,Betsy Lewin

Click Clack Moo: Cow's That Type by Doreen Cronin is a book about cows that get a hold of an old type writer and decide to go on strike against Farmer Brown. They make continuous requests/demands (for example electric blankets) in order to give Farmer Brown their milk. I would rate this book a four out of five stars and It is listed as an AD160L on the Lexile scale. I would have my students write letter to the Farmer Brown making a request from a different animal. I would make it clear that the students could choose any other animal they would see at a farm except a cow. This is a super cute book that i will have on my bookshelf for sure.

This book kept me giggling. My favorite part was when the cows would type on the type writers to write the farmer and the farmer could not figure out who was writing him letters. I think the cows were very smart going about getting what they wanted from the farmer. The activities that  I can do with my students would be cause and effect, cow puppets, or writing activities.

Lexile Level: AD160L

 

This is a book about literate cows. They start to be mischievous leaving the farm notes. Causing the farmer some trouble around the farm. I would use this a just a little fun book for the children to laugh at. It would be a good book to take a little break.

Moo Book Review
Moo - Sharon Creech

Okay. so this is very engaging and a quick read. I loved the story, I loved the characters and felt we really got to feel what the main character and family was going through in their move to Maine.

 

Told in verse, Reena and her family have to move to Maine when her parents lose their jobs. They are moving from a city to a country farm in the middle of nowhere and her life is going to change. Then they have to "work" for grumpy old, Mrs. Falala where they meet the eccentric Zora, the cow.

 

My biggest complaint is to what poetry and verse is becoming today. This could easily have been written as a regular book.

 

Breaking up

sentences like

this does not

make it poetry.

 

And that's really all the "verses" were in this book. But otherwise, I did really enjoy the book. And will absolutely recommend it.
