The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor. The book is very interesting so far, pulling data from various studies and Achor’s own observations of human behavior. I’ll have a more complete review after I finish the book.
Michael Scott’s The Warlock (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel). The last book of the series is coming out in the next few weeks and I can’t wait to see how it all ends!
- What they’re currently reading
- Captain Flinn and the pirate dinosaurs by Giles Andreae. This book is PERFECT! Where else can you find not only pirates AND dinosaurs, but pirate dinosaurs? Add a battle on the seas and swordfights and you end up with delighted children.
– Purr-fect Pete by Samantha Hay. Pete is the new acro-cat addition to the circus team. He’s very little, doesn’t eat fish and smells like stinky cheese, but he’s the best on the team. Is Purr-fect Pete keeping a secret? My kids LOVED the surprising twist.
– Are you going to be good? by Cari Best. Robert is attending his first night party to celebrate Great-Gran Sadie’s 100th birthday, and his parents request him to use his best manners. Things don’t go as planned, but Robert is the one who ends up entertaining the guest of honor best.
- What they recently finished reading
– Badness for beginners : a Little Wolf and Smellybreff Adventure by Ian Whybrow. Little Wolf and his brother Smellybreff get a lesson in badness from Mom and Dad, and Little Wolf is having a hard time being bad…
– What’s the time, Little Wolf? by Ian Whybrow. Little Wolf and his brother play a naughty trick on a few rabbits in their quest for dinner. We loved the shocking ending (stuffed rabbits for dinner, anyone?), as it shows life as it is, at least for a family of hungry wolves.
– If A Chicken Stayed For Supper by Carrie Weston. Five little foxes promise their mother not to leave the den when she goes out hunting for a chicken for supper. Unable to resist going outside to play in the dark, they meet a chicken who will lead them safely back home. Oops, what will they do with the chicken who just helped them out?
- What I think they’ll read next
I have no idea, but I’m sure it will be lots of fun books!
