Dragon Wing by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman
Dragon Wing - Tracy Hickman,Margaret Weis

Dragon Wing is book 1 in the completed Death Gate Cycle of 7 books.  The first book contains a complete story but there is quite obviously something more complex going on.  The best part of this book is the world building - it is original, even after all these years.  The characters are also fairly well written and complex.  Even the dog has his own personality.  The book starts off with an assassin in what is superficially a medieval world and ends up with a variety of elves, dwarves, humans, an "adorable" manipulative little child, wizards of various kinds, a man with bandaged hands (and his dog) in a world that isn't all that medieval anymore and on the cusp of change.  Book 1 takes place in the World of Air, which is a world of floating continents with a contraption (of unknown purpose) called the Kicksey-winsey worshiped and maintained by the locals.  Travel between these floating islands is via dragon back or airship, and the local currency is barrels of water or their equivalent in coin.  This adventure is a fun, action packed romp through an interesting realm.  If you want to know what happens in such a fascinating world, you are just going to have to read the book (and the rest of the Death Gate Cycle).

Book Review on The Happiness Perspective: Seeing Your Life Differently by Diane Wing
The Happiness Perspective: Seeing Your Life Differently - Diane Wing
Our Beck Valley Book Review on The Happiness Perspective: Seeing Your Life Differently by Diane Wing  'Such an inspirational, life transforming, magical book that I connected with it instantly. Five stars is no where near enough!'
 
"Such an inspirational, life transforming, magical book that I connected with it instantly. The authors words are written in such a clear, informative, encouraging and helpful way that you feel at ease reading it, confident in the knowledge that you can have the power to change what is wrong in your life if you allow yourself to do so. After my very first day of reading the just the first part of this amazing book I was incentivized to change a major problem that I had been facing, which involved me side stepping my pride (which I find hard to do) letting go and sorting the problem head on, rather than thinking about it, putting it to the back of my mind and continuing on and on and on.
 
Author Diane Wing, helps you focus on what it is you really want in your life, helping you to begin to be able to find your true happiness, the true you and dispel the negative thinking you have been carrying around, perhaps for a number of years. Through her guidance, wisdom, stories and thought provoking questions and interactive activities she helps you pull up what you know is currently wrong in your life, understanding why you feel or act like you do and helps you to re-work it to be fully happy. I found the exercises and questions extremely useful and very easy to follow and were not there just to fill up the pages of the book, they were actually a great tool to work with.
 
I do believe that just by reading through this book it will impact on your subconscious mind, but if you allow yourself to open your mind up to new possibilities and accept the spiritual thinking behind it you will feel empowered. There were a few times that the author re-iterated things that I have come to realize myself regarding the flow of positive energy and thinking which made me connect even more. I really liked that the book was split into separate categories of life and thinking which makes it so much easier to be able to refer back to whenever needed. I for one will definitely be re-reading the whole book again, it was that transforming for me and by doing so it can only reaffirm what I have already learned.
 
This is the first book I have read by the author and I'm hoping it certainly won't be the last, her writing has captured my attention and prompted me to start to make real changes. I would absolutely love to listen to this as an audiobook also. Five stars is no where near enough!"

Book Review - The Happiness Perspective: Seeing Your Life Differently by Diane Wing
The Happiness Perspective: Seeing Your Life Differently - Diane Wing

The Happiness Perspective: Seeing Your Life Differently  by Diane Wing 'helps you to see life from a perspective that changes it all! This book is a must read!' reviews Cryssie Addis​ from Blessings and Seasons 5*****

 

"Are you in a season of wondering how to be happier? Are you waiting for life to be "perfect" so that you can finally feel happiness and joy? If that sounds like you, then you must read this book. If you are a spiritual person in any way, then you will find that this book helps you to see life from a perspective that changes it all!"

 

"I started reading this book during a time of lots of change & sadness. Over the past week, I have experienced amazing transformation and breakthrough in my life. This book has been a part of that transformation. I experienced my own spiritual moment with God along with reading this book and I couldn't be more thankful for Diane's willingness to write a book that could help so many people.

 

Diane starts this book off with encouraging her readers to check in with themselves and with their own thoughts before taking anybody's advice, including hers. Immediately, I trusted her. I knew when I read that sentence that she cares about her readers and that her writings are a mission! I'll share with you just a few of the "life changer" quotes that resonated with me.

 

"Perception is reality, and so the way you see and define something determines your feelings, behaviors, and interpretations of it."

 

"Reject relationships or circumstances that are unhealthy for you and that create energy drains."

 

"Maintaining a false self is hard work and a recipe for unhappiness."

 

"By understanding your belief system and how it aligns with your core self, you understand your true nature and stand in it in every circumstance."

 

This book is a must read!"

The Night Before St. Patrick's Day - Natasha Wing,Amy Wummer

I read this book to a group of first grade students during my first whole group lesson. The lesson I taught was character, setting, and plot and this book was perfect for the lesson. The students loved the book and the rhyming words and illustrations were very engaging and the students seemed to love it. I can use this book during the month of March to give the students examples and visuals of St. Patrick's Day.

The Night Before St. Patrick's Day - Natasha Wing,Amy Wummer

The Night before ST. Patrick's Day, written by Natasha Wing, is a book about two children and how they prepare for ST. Patrick's Day. It is very similar to Twas the Night before Christmas, but is based on ST. Patrick's Day instead. I love this book because I love ST. Patrick's Day. To me this holiday sometimes is underrated in schools, and I believe that any kind of Holiday is a good way to bring some fun into the classroom. There are many different activities that we could do after reading this book, for example, I could take them outside on a four leaf clover hunt. I could also have them make their own four leaf clovers and have them write the theme, setting, characters, and plot on each separate leaf.That is way you can have a reading comprehension lesson as well as a fun activity related to the book. I could also have all the children wear green that day to add a little bit more fun to the activity and day. I would use this book for Kindergarten to Third grade.
