The Giving Tree
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

This wonderful piece of literature is suitable for children of all ages, and adults too! This story promotes kindness and sharing. I think this book would be perfect to read at the beginning of the school year as friends are just settling into the classroom. This book would be perfect for sequencing, and I would even turn it into a center. This text would also be perfect to read during Earth Day!

The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

The Giving Tree is a phenomenal classic for every generation! This book teachers such an important lesson that is appropriate for readers of all ages. I enjoy the simple illustrations and language which is great for beginning readers. The story line is easy to follow and interesting. I would use this in the classroom when learning about finding the central message in a text. After a lesson on finding the central message, I would read this book aloud with my class and discuss the central message of this book with the students.

Release Day Review! Giving Chase (Chase Brothers #1) Lauren Dane
Giving Chase - Lauren Dane

 

Previously published; newly refreshed by author

The Chase boys. Ridiculously hot and notoriously single.

When landscaper Kyle Chase takes notice of Maggie Wright, all of Petal, Georgia, wonders what the quiet schoolteacher is hiding underneath her tight bun and boring blouses. Even Maggie doesn’t quite get it, but after a failed relationship and a disastrous attempt to get back out there, she’s no match against the famous Chase charm, and Kyle has it in spades. 

Kyle wants Maggie in his life—and in his bed—and he doesn’t mind getting down and dirty to prove it. For years he’s avoided the kind of trouble that comes with “good girls” like her, but Maggie’s the best trouble he’s ever been in. He craves more of it. And more of her.

But even as their love grows into thoughts of forever, a hidden danger from Maggie’s past threatens to tear them apart. And when Maggie suddenly disappears, Kyle must put his faith in his family and race to save the love of his life before he loses her forever.

The Chase is on. One small town. Four hot brothers. And enough heat to burn up anyone who dares to get close. Don’t miss the next books: Taking ChaseChased and Making Chase.

 

 

Giving Chase is an emotionally gripping tale full of suspense and with some interesting romantic twists that adds some spice to the story. 

 

This story has wonderful, compelling characters that pull readers into the story with a sweet romance that is interesting and different and emotional issues that readers can relate to and understand. Kyle and Maggie have some magical and electrifying chemistry that has sparks flying in every direction and the supporting characters are just as wonderful and attention grabbing as the hero and heroine which ensures that I will definitely be getting to know all the Chase Brothers and their family and friends.

 

The story also brings some of the suspenseful and dangerous twists in the dating game to life with keeps readers on the edge of their seats and building suspense while the couple try to work out their happily ever after in this fast paced story.

 

Lauren Dane certainly has a gift for making her characters lifelike with real characteristics and issues that make it easy for the readers to feel as if they really know the characters and are part of the story and the Chase Brothers are some sexy brothers that I sure don’t mind getting to know, in fact I want to know where I can find one of my own. LOL!  Oh well, since I don’t see that happening anytime soon, I will just be happily awaiting the release of the next Chase Brothers book.

San Marcelino District Hospital Gift Giving Activity 2017

Life is so magical and beautiful indeed we should live it fully.

 

As a way of sharing and helping others, for the past 3 consecutive years Isabelita Rosueta Organization (IROG) make it to a point of extending help to the newborn babies in San Marcelino Hospital. The smile from those loving parents is undeniably the proof of how happy they are in having their bundle of joy.

 

 

 

Last September 16, 2017, 20 newborn babies received a bag of happiness: packed with essential baby needs; diaper, feeding bottles and some baby dresses and baby mattress pad with pillows. Their parents can’t express how thankful they are to receive such gift. It could be a small or simple thing for others but as we say “No matter how big or small a thing could be, what matters most is the happiness that it brings.”

 

IROG is always looking to the positive side that those newborn babies could make a difference in the future. Let them feel that we are always ready to guide them in facing what the world would give.

 

You cannot buy happiness, happiness is born. – Unknown
