Wanted!
Wanted! - Caroline B. Cooney

Me: In 2020 I'm going to read more new stuff. 

Also me: Let's reread this Caroline B. Cooney novel late late one night when I should be asleep. 

 

I don't remember why, but I had a sudden need to reread this book. It was like a craving that wouldn't go away. The book is really silly, but I still enjoyed parts (probably out of nostalgia), especially when Alice is on the college campus. Cooney's novels are very exciting when you're 10 and the internet is not a thing or when you're... older than 10 and just need to take a little brain break and revisit your childhood.

24 Festive Task - Door 7: International Day for Tolerance (Task 3)
Great & Small Prayers for Babies - Flash Kids Editors
Good Night, Baby Animals You've Had a Busy Day: A Treasury of Six Original Stories - Laura Watkins,Karen B. Winnick
The Adventures of Mitee Mite: The Entire First Edition Collection - John David Mann
I'm Going to Give You a Bear Hug! - Caroline B. Cooney,Tim Warnes

Task 3: The French expression for tolerance towards others is “laisser faire, laisser aller” (roughly: “let them do as they want, let it go”). Have you ever “let go” a book (e.g., given it away or decided not to yield to the temptation to buy it) and later regretted that choice?

 

I really do not give away books. It either because I got them and love them or their authored. But lastly. Thank to all the new babies being born in my family (My Cousins).

 

I have been giving away, my Children books. That are for their right ages. Books given away to them for their birthday and Christian and Christmas. One book was given to my mom friends baby at a baby shower. A few when to my mom friend daughter. (These one I might have regret if she not been using them)

 

I have not regret it. I think I rather give and see the return when giving does to others. (I do not give them away until after I have reviewed the books, if they were review books and most are)

 

Books listed and linked up above.

I have a few to give away to my cousin for their kids at Christmas this year that are not linked above.

What Janie Found
What Janie Found - Caroline B. Cooney

This book isn't as engrossing as the others were for me. I kept spacing out and thinking of other things to do. It seemed to ramble on and go nowhere. In the end it did end up going nowhere but I suppose the trip itself was a trip they needed to take. The journey itself was the destination and a solution was found to their dilemma.

 

Additional thoughts....

So, I didn't read these books in school like so many people did.  I might be too old by a smidge.  I vaguely remember my mother in law watching the TV show while we were visiting when my husband and I were either recently married or maybe about to be.  I looked it up and watched it online and was surprised when I recognized the last half.  When I read the first few books I read the old version but this one was the new version.  I actually listened to an audio book and not the one linked here.  I was just lazy.  Anyway, it was weird to me that Janie had a cell phone.  Is it so bad to leave books alone and let kids experience the past the way it really was.  Sure, they may be shocked that people had to find a payphone to make a call or look through paper logs and records or books in libraries to find information about people, places or things.  It is still educational though.  Leave the books alone.  I don't think it is necessary to try to make them fit the present.

The Voice on the Radio
The Voice On The Radio - Caroline B. Cooney

This story continues to be an emotional roller-coaster. It seems like nothing could be worse than the way it started but it did get worse. Of course, Cooney did a wonderful job at wrapping up. I can´t wait to see what happens in the next book.
