The Rainy Day Man

How do you describe a book this good without giving away the plot and ending?

That is the question here.  I love books on spies, crime, espionage.. and this is all 3 wrapped

into one.

There are so many twists and turns in this novel that I still am having a hard time pulling myself

back into the real world.

The beginning starts with Danny talking about his own funeral!  I can’t even IMAGINE

my own funeral without crying. but in reality, what is happening is he is leaving one job behind for another.

This was a fantastic thriller, and the only thing that I can really say

right now is to grab this book while you can and read it!

My review on this book would never do it justice, but I am reading the book AGAIN

and will update soon!

SNAKES eBook


Snakes

 

Snakes

by Dan Jackson

I know that for many, snakes are SCARY!!  I personally can’t stand to even LOOK at them!!

My children, on the other hand, LOVE to read about them, see them in the wild, and they DRAG me to see them

in the zoo.  As much as I HATE snakes, my love for my children will make me withstand whatever it is that their

hearts desire.. and that’s why I continue to read this book.

The photos are so very lifelike, and sometimes make you feel like they are going to jump off the page

at any moment.  That’s one of the features that makes this an excellent book.  As is Dan Jackson’s style,

he ensures that the highest quality photos are included for your children’s enjoyment.

I love that his books are all factual, and provide real information about the subject that it is written on.

This book would make a wonderful addition to any child’s library or public library.

It is an excellent source of material for book reports and lessons.

Amazing Facts About Astronauts

Amazing Facts About Astronauts

by Dan Jackson

Have your children ever wondered about Astronauts?

Have them claimed they wanted to BE one from the time they could TALK?

My son HAS.  He has been interested in space, flying, and the universe

ever since he started learning to talk.

When we moved to Florida, it got MUCH more in depth.

He was able to watch launches from our front yard.  Space and astronauts and

the idea of going into outer space has enthralled him.

This book has truly touched that part of him again.

He reads it every night before we go to bed, and it’s one of those reasons that our

saying before bed every night is “I love you all the way to the Moon and Back.”

This book has been a wonderful learning experience for him.  He knows the definition of

Astronaut, he knows who the first man was who stepped on the moon.

For any mom who has a young boy (or girl) who is interested in space and astronauts, this book is sure to be a hit!

Amazing Facts about the Moon

Amazing Facts About the Moon

by Dan Jackson

I am using this book in my homeschool curriculum this week.  We are doing a lesson

on the moon.  This book has been an AMAZING tool to help teach my 2nd grader

about the moon.

My favorite photo in the entire book was this one.  The page talks about the Solar Eclipse,

and the photo is just.. I can’t even describe it.

Moon2

Another great read by Dan.  I am loving SOO many of his books.  I haven’t found one yet that

I can’t recommend HIGHLY.

I WISH I WERE A SHARK

I Wish I Were A Shark

by Dan Jackson

I have started using many of Dan Jackson’s books in my homeschool curriculum.

Not only are his books geared to young children; they draw that child into the book.

The books are not boring, they are filled with facts, and this one is no different.

I love how he is able to tell a story using those facts, but gives enough information

for that child to be able to complete an entire lesson on that particular animal.

In this case that animal is a shark.

This is a great book for any child who likes to learn about animals, and Dan Jackson has many

other books that talk about animals.  Please feel free to check out some of my other reviews

on other books written by him.  He is a wonderful storyteller, and gatherer of facts.

His photos are always high quality photos that bring each animal to life.

I WISH I WERE A LION eBook

I Wish I Were A Lion
by Dan Jackson

In true Dan Jackson fashion, this book is full of some WONDERFUL photography of Lions.

He has taken a bit of a different turn in writing this with children ages 4-11 in mind.

The tone of the book is different from many others that I have read of his children’s books.

Instead of just writing the facts about these regal and fierce creatures, he

speaks to the children.

My children especially loved that he started each page with

as a Lion what he would like to embody about the lion.

It truly got my son interested and engaged in the reading.  He agreed with why

on each page, the author wished her were a lion.  It gave us a starting point

on each page to talk about the lions characteristics, and how as a growing boy

he himself could exude some of those characteristics.

This is definitely a great book even for those beginner readers.  Most of the words are easy

for them to read, with minimal assistance, yet the book is engaging enough for even the pre-teens.

It is a great learning book, and would be an excellent addition to a Homeschool Curriculum as well.

RezVera

RezVera

RezVera

RezVera was created for those who suffer not only Irritable Bowel Syndrome, but also excessive gas, bloating and acid reflux.

It helps to stop the painful symptoms we feel. They include painful, stabbing,  abdominal pain and cramping.

 Users will acid reflux often feel chest pains, burning in their throat & chest

and many times causes nausea and vomiting.

 I for one, have Irritable Bowel Syndrome,  and suffer (thanks to 3 pregnancies) some wicked heart burn and acid reflux.

 It was after having my last Child that my symptoms really started to get BAD.

 I didn’t think I would ever find relief.   Sometimes my IBS got so bad it would cause me to go, dragging my children into

 a fast food chain bathroom where I would sit for close to an hour until I was  finally able to go. By that point I would be in tears, dealing with pains so bad

 I wanted to scream) and my poor children confined in the stall with me.

 It was just a few short weeks ago that I was introduced to my body’s new best friend.

 I ordered a bottle of RezVera on Amazon, and waited anxiously for  it to arrive.

 I started taking it 2 days later when it arrived.   I am very impatient, and by day 4 when I thought it wasn’t working, was ready

 to give up.   But I am a former nurses aid andremembered that I needed to give it a chance.

By day 7, I was actually noticing a real difference.  I’m sure that it didn’t MAGICALLY happen, but that was when I really started to notice a change.

I felt the urge to go but it came naturally, without all the agony.

By week 2.. I was more regular than I have EVER been.

My nausea was also gone, and because I was feeling better than I ever did… I also found that I had more energy.

I am sure that results will vary with times of relief for each person, but these are my

personal results with this product, and I hope to never be without it again.

Mom’s Journey e-Book & GIVEAWAY

Mom's Journey

Mom’s Journey

I have to be honest that I was a bit skeptical of this book prior to reading it.

I AM a Mom, and many of the “tips” that I have seen on TV and have read in other books did NOT

fly with my kids.  Some were too harsh, some were just down right ridiculous.

This book is FABULOUS, and includes tips that should work for almost any situation.

The author walks you through MANY situations.  Some that I agree with totally, and some that I began to read,

and had to stop and go on to the next topic.  As with every parent, your needs and mine are different… and your

way of parenting may not be the same as mine.

Her chapter about Screaming, for one, was one that I read beginning to end.  I HATE when parents scream at their

children.  I find myself doing it my own children on occasion.  I am not perfect by any means, but I dislike very much losing

my temper to the point I scream.  The author and I agree on that one very precise point.  I do so very little, and it has

been a struggle for me to teach my husband that our kids don’t listen BETTER because he’s yelling.  They actually

shut down, and don’t listen at all… which does the EXACT opposite of what he wants to happen.

My son is a PERFECT example of this.

The next topic that I absolutely LOVED?  The “chapter” on Crying.

This is a topic where many parents are divided.  Some say let them cry it out.  Others are firm believers that

you need to tend to your children when they are crying.  This author nailed it on the head for me.  I am a firm believer

that children cry for a reason.. because they need something from you, whether it’s because their hungry, hurt or just

need some attention.  When you ignore this, you are ignoring their needs.. and by doing so, teaching them that

you really aren’t there for them when they need you.  Now of course, there are times in the store when you REALLY

WANT to ignore their cries.. but as this author points out.. when you ignore their cries.. you leave the potential for a

meltdown that honestly will compare to a nuclear bomb explosion.

I agree, the best option is to tend to their needs.  Get down to their level and talk to them.

Give them some options, and reassure them that you DO care about how they feel.

I also love her section on Love and Praise.

The best things that have every happened to me; the most wonderful things in the world

that I could have been given.. were my 3 children.  I have 2 girls and a boy.

Never do I let a day go by that I don’t tell them how much I love them; how much they mean to me, or how special

they are.  To me, them knowing daily how much I love them is the best gift that I can ever give them.

I never want a day to go by that I could have told them how wonderful they are, or how good at drawing or singing

or cooking or playing they are.

Life is short enough.  You never know when it will be the last time you are able to tell them.

The author takes a slightly different slant on this, that I also agree with.  By praising them at everything they do.. it instills

confidence in them.  The confidence that you instill will reach far beyond whatever you could have imagined.

Let them know that they can be whatever they choose to become, because they ARE great.

You created them!  They are perfect just as they are.

I truly couldn’t have written a book this well written, or this spot on on so many levels.

This is going to be one of those books that I will look back on many times throughout my children’s lives to refer

to her reasoning.  She speaks in the book like she is actually speaking to you as a friend.

Her writing style is that of a friend having a private conversation with her best friend and giving just

those little tid-bits of advice that we give only to our best girl friends.. like it’s a secret.

I highly recommend to all parents to purchase this book.  It will be the best $2.99 that you’ve ever spent.
