Book Review - Amulet: Supernova

Amulet: Supernova



About the Book
Emily has lost control of her Amulet and is imprisoned in the Void, where she must find a way to escape the influence of the Voice. Meanwhile, Emily's brother, Navin, travels to Lighthouse One, a space station where the Resistance is preparing to battle the approaching Shadow forces that would drain planet Alledia of all its resources. Emily and Navin must be smarter and stronger than ever to ensure Alledia's survival.



My Take on the Book
This is a great book with an amazing story and even better illustrations throughout the entire book. While this is a continuation, the story was amazing. It incorporates adventure, action, science fiction and a bit more. My daughter loved this addition to the series and you will too!

Book Review - Creative Adventures in Cursive

Creative Adventures in Cursive



About the Book
Writing is cooler in cursive, and Creative Adventures in Cursive gives kids ideas for practicing writing skills, then guides them into cursive creativity.

As many educators will attest, writing in cursive provides cognitive benefits in spelling, memory, reading comprehension, language skills, and overall academic confidence. Practicing cursive carries similar benefits when drawing; once you learn the basic shapes, you can play with it by creating your own personal style.

In Creative Adventures in Cursive, noted author Rachelle Doorley, the creative force behind Tinkerlab, shows twenty fun and colorful ways to use script to make posters, present school projects, design monograms, create greeting cards, decorate book bags and t-shirts, ice cookies and cakes -- writing in script with everything, including fabric markers, pastry tubes, string and yarn, and of course brushes, pens, and crayons.




My Take on the Book
This was an important book, especially right now in my kids' lives. Unfortunately, my kids' school does not teach cursive and because of this I have been working on teaching them cursive. This is not always easy, but lately they have been more interested in how cursive looks. This book has some great activities, warm ups and more that will encourage all to appreciate everything that encompasses cursive!
