Book Review of Peter Pan by JM Barrie

Peter Pan and his adventures at Neverland is a fascinating read. The original story in print was more absorbing, extra interesting, than the movie because I was able to learn more about each of the characters – the seemingly unlikeable Mr. Darling, the very affectionate Mrs. Darling, the ever so watchful Nana, the motherly Wendy, the always arguing brothers John and Michael, the forgetful Peter, the insecure Captain Hook, the jealous Tinkerbell, and the predatory crocodile. That is why in my hierarchy of interests, reading always goes first from watching movies.

Review: The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate

I am always looking for audio books that my kids and I can listen to while driving to and from appointments. We all seem to prefer our “stories” to music on drives longer than ten minutes or so. A friend recommended The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly.

Review: Battle For the Castle by Elizabeth Winthrop

My kids enjoyed The Castle in the Attic by Elizabeth Winthrop, so we decided to listen to the sequel, The Battle for the Castle. Both children gave the book a thumbs up, and I was sufficiently entertained with the book to keep listening to it.

Igraine the Brave by Cornelia Funke
