Impossible Views of the World - Lucy Ives

WAY too much unneeded description of everything. I could only stand 15% before closing this book. I won't be going back to it. Reading a book should be entertaining, not agony.

I really wanted to like this book, but it was just impossible for me.

Thanks to Penguin Group and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
Norse Mythology - Neil Gaiman

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman is a somewhat bland modern re-rewording of the shenanigans of the Norse Gods and Goddesses, the creation, and end of the World, that can be found in the Poetic and Prose Eddas.  If you don't know much about the Norse Gods and Goddesses, this is a decent, easy to read introduction.  If you know the basics, then you will find nothing new in this book.  This book also does not include any of the Norse myths/legends like Sigurd and the Dragon.

My Review of The Bridge Beyond Her World
The Bridge Beyond Her World (The Boy and the Beast) (Volume 2) - Brandon Barr

The Bridge Beyond Her World by Brandon Barr is the second installment of the Song of the Worlds series.

 

This story picks up where the first book ends. I was not expecting as much sci-fi elements, but it actually worked quite well within the story. Such excellent storytelling, Brandon has given me a new appreciation for genre mixing. This is such a well thought out and executed tale that, I have to say, it is one of the best stories I have ever read.

5th Grade Geography: Seas and Oceans of the World: Fifth Grade Books Marine Life and Oceanography for Kids (Children's Oceanography Books) - Baby Professor
4th Grade US History: The Civil War Years: Fourth Grade Book US Civil War Period (Children's American Revolution History) - Baby Professor
4th Grade Geography: North and South Poles: Fourth Grade Books Polar Regions for Kids (Children's Explore Polar Regions Books) - Baby Professor

I realize that these state that they are for 4th and 5th grades, but I felt that they might have some information that would be good for what we are studying, but these were too young. I felt that they would have been good for kindergarten or 1st graders over 4th or 5th graders. 

 

The pictures in the books were very well done and the wording was definitely for teaching, but was definitely too young for the grades mentioned.
