A Fine Dessert – Out of all the books I’ve reviewed for Random House, this quickly became my husband’s favorite. As you may know by now, my husband’s not very vocal but he said “This is a really great book. Nicely done.” He spoke one and a half sentences, y’all!
This is a book about four families over four centuries that make the same dessert, blackberry fool. It shows the way people lived in different times and how this special dessert has gotten easier to make in modern times. The book includes the recipe for blackberry fool, which we can’t wait to try.
I love the unique topic and how it brings the history of food in a form that is entertaining and educational for kids.
Uni The Unicorn – The hummingbird always pays close attention to the illustrations of a book and loves to hear how it’s done so this book really appealed to her. It’s so vibrant and fun.
Uni the Unicorn day dreams about playing with a little girl but is told there’s no such things as little girls. At the same time, there’s a little girl who dreams of meeting a unicorn and going on adventures.
Did I mention it’s about a unicorn? I did? How in the world can you pass up a book about unicorns, one of the best things in the world. You can’t. And yes, I do want to believe that they’re real.
