Book Review - The Big Fat Middle School Math Workbook: 600 Math Practice Exercises


The Big Fat Middle School Math Workbook: 600 Math Practice Exercises




About the Book

Practice makes As with a fill-in workbook from the editors of the Big Fat Notebooks!

This hands-on Big Fat Math Workbook equals being tutored by the best teacher in the school, through a recap of every key concept using definitions, examples, and special services like THINK, showing just how to get into the concept, and REMEMBER, summing up critical facts. Plus: Sample problems worked out step by step. 600 exercises and word problems. A solution process instead of an answer key to guide students through each problem they missed or to reinforce how they succeeded.
 

My Take on the Book
My daughter is a middle school student and she loved this book. Math is a subject that is not always her strongest one, but she found this book to be filled with exercises that she found to be easy to follow and they really helped her to understand a lot of concepts that she did not understand completely before this. That being said, this was a great book that you will love to share with your own middle-school student.

Book Review - Unicorn Playlist: Another Phoebe and Her Unicorn Adventure

Unicorn Playlist: Another Phoebe and Her Unicorn Adventure



About the Book
From newspapers to Nickelodeon, Phoebe and Her Unicorn is the most stunning unicorn feature around! This latest collection of Phoebe comics will delight middle-grade readers and unicorn lovers of all ages.

Best friends Phoebe Howell and Marigold Heavenly Nostrils march to their own beat, but life isn’t all rainbows and unicorns. With so many problems in the world and drama at school, Phoebe wonders why unicorns aren’t in charge instead of humans. With Marigold, each day is full of magic, from introducing Phoebe to unicorn music to crashing a goblin popularity contest, and even tracking down long-lost family members like Infernus, the Unicorn of Death (who ends up being surprisingly adorable). In Unicorn Playlist, Phoebe and Marigold play all the hits.


My Take on the Book
This is another great book from the series! You get adventure, humor and more. I loved that in this book you get introduced to so many new characters, but also get to see Phoebe and Marigold Heavenly Nostrils in a whole new way. The illustrations are as great as always and you will get drawn into the book from the beginning to end of the book!

Book Review - 'Twas the Night Before Christmas

'Twas the Night Before Christmas



About the Book

The classic Christmas verse in an elegant new gift edition—breathtakingly illustrated by P.J. Lynch.

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house . . .

P.J. Lynch brings his rich and atmospheric art to the well-loved holiday poem. Children will pore over every cozy detail in these warm, sweeping watercolor illustrations—from snug mice to stockings hung by the chimney with care to toys in the bundle flung over merry St. Nicholas’s back. A glowing interpretation of a favorite read-aloud, this is a keepsake volume to cherish and return to year after year.


My Take on the Book
This is a story that brings me back to my own childhood. I would hear this story every Christmas, first by my Grandfather and then from my own father and then I shared this story reading it to my own kids. This is a beautiful book with amazing illustrations that is a keepsake for any family!

DVD Review - The Flash: The Complete Seventh Season

The Flash: The Complete Seventh Season



About the DVD

It’s time to escape the Mirrorverse, resurrect the Speed Force and make every second count! The Flash is back to protect Central City with his lightning-fast reflexes – and fans will be zooming in to pick up the highest-rated series on The CW – as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment releases The Flash: The Complete Seventh Season on Blu-ray and DVD on October 12, 2021. Speed-watch all 18 riveting episodes from season seven, plus never-before-seen bonus content including deleted scenes and a gag reel.

The Flash: The Complete Seventh Season is also available to own on Digital via purchase from digital retailers.

After last season’s cliffhanger which saw the brilliant and powerful Eva McCulloch victorious and still-at-large in Central City, Barry Allen/The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and bring back his missing wife. With help from the rest of Team Flash, Barry will ultimately defeat Mirror Monarch and reunite with Iris West-Allen. But in doing so, he’ll unleash two more devastating threats: one that could tear his marriage apart… and another that will lay siege to Central City and change the future forever.

With Blu-ray’s unsurpassed picture and sound, The Flash: The Complete Seventh Season Blu-ray release will include 1080p Full HD Video with DTS-HD Master Audio for English 5.1. Featuring all 18 episodes from the seventh season in high definition, as well as a digital code of the season (available in the U.S. only).

Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (Arrow, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Riverdale), Eric Wallace (Teen Wolf, Z Nation, Eureka), Sarah Schechter (Batwoman, Riverdale, Black Lightning, Supergirl) and Jonathan Butler & Gabriel Garza (Bella and the Bulldogs).

18. Heart of the Matter, Part 2



My Take on the DVD
This is a great season! I loved seeing how well the characters came together to get out of the mirrorverse as well as fixing and freeing the speed force throughout this season. I loved seeing all of the new characters throughout the season, but also the characters that we know and love. Each season for me gets better and better, but this season stood out when it came to looking at Iris West-Allen and how the mirrorverse impacts her and her relationships with others. On top of this, you get to see some characters leaving the show and some coming back and in the end you really get a great season that allows you to look forward to season eight. All-in-all if you love The Flash, you will love this season too!

Book Review - Little One


Little One




About the Book

Winner at the 2020 Independent Publisher Book Awards. Full of warmth and promise, this picture book about the magic bond between parents and their baby girl will soon win the love of parents from all over the world.

They say the first time you watch your newborn, your heart gives a little thrill, and that is when you know you are going to love the little creature in your arms forever. These parents’ experienced it and they lovingly welcome their young child, as they explain to her what to expect of the world. Watching her offspring grow up and accompanying her during this beautiful process will be indeed healing for them, as through her eyes, the eyes of a child, they will discover the world once again.


My Take on the Book
This is a great book that really lets you see the world through the eyes of a child, but also through the eyes of a parent. The book is a love letter from parent to child about the world that will unveil itself to them. I loved the images and the sentiment within the story as you will hear and see things that you really will want to say to your own child. That being said, the book is one that is meant to be read between a parent and child and can be read over and over again so your child will understand the meaning as he/she gets older. I am very impressed overall with the book and what it says to a child and I think you will be impressed too.
