Great Book and Great Characters
My One True Highlander (No Ordinary Hero) - Suzanne Enoch

Rugged highlander Graeme has one thing on his mind—take a stand against the horrible Englishman Lattimer and he will be rewarded with enough money to be set for life. But when his reckless younger brothers take it one step too far and kidnaps a young woman on her way to see Lattimer, Graeme has to intervene. Unfortunately, trying to protect his brother keeps leading to more and more trouble.

This was a very cute story. There were times when I wanted to yell at Graeme for his assumptions about Marjorie, but I felt a little silly when I was yelling at my tablet and it didn’t change his misconceptions:) The side characters were so engrained into the story that they were just as interesting to follow. I can’t wait to read another book by Suzanne Enoch! I really loved it and highly recommend it.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Book Review - The True Nature of Energy - Transforming Anxiety into Tranquility by Diane Wing
The True Nature of Energy: Transforming Anxiety Into Tranquility - Diane Wing

How can we embrace nature to enhance our own spiritual well being?  This is a book that gives you very useful tips on how to achieve just that goal. Setting out specific exercises and thoughts to change your life, for example - How many negative influences are in your life? - This could be as simple as removing someone who only calls to pass on bad news or is always complaining to you.

There are exercises that will also help you to feel better about yourself and how to attract positive influences in your life.  It explains why certain places and events affect your mood and character. Why do you go to a certain place to feel better? For me it was a visit to the watch the tidal movements that has this effect.

This is a book that I would like to revisit time after time to gain the maximum results.  An enjoyable, informative read from the author.

The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs - Jon Scieszka,Lane Smith

This book is told from the point of view of the fox, who is trying to tell everyone how he became known as "big and bad". He was never trying to blow the house down! He just needed a cup of sugar for his grandmothers cake, and when the pigs said no, he sneezed because of a cold and blew their house down. This continued until the brick house, which was not blown over and the police came to the wolf yelling, sneezing and huffing at the brick house because of an insult to his grandmother! Poor grandmother never got her cake! I would use this book in an activity that would explore points of view using multiple versions of the three little pig stories!

The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs
The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs - Jon Scieszka,Lane Smith

This is the TRUE story of the 3 little pigs told from the wolf's perspective. This would be a great way to teach children about perspectives and 1st person/ 3rd person, point of view. Kids sometimes don't realize the difference of a story between 3rd and 1st person point of view. There are other types too like omniscient, 2nd person, and limited. We would have to have an in depth lesson on pronouns and point of view, so I would read this book to a 3rd or 4th grade class.

An activity I would pair with it would be for kids to pick their favorite books and decide from which point of view the stories are told.I may assign paragraphs for the students to read in order to decide what point of view it is told from. That sounds boring, but it is important that kids understand.
