I am delighted with this book. It is far better than I imagined. It will be life changing for me - I can see that already - and I don't say that lightly. I have seen/read many books on the topic. THIS ONE is what I needed. Thanks to PBS - I now have it.
The all-terrain, or mountain, bicycle is the newest development in cycling.
Charles Coombs has written a comprehensive guide for young readers to this exciting new sport.
Included in the books are overs seventy photographs--action shots as well as photographs explaining the parts of an all-terrain bicycle and demonstrating riding and repair skills. - from the dust jacket
A simple story. Probably like others - but I found it to be special. The characters caught your heart and made you care. Possibly with the Amish setting, it does not hark back to Betty Neels books to anyone but me. But I loved it and would recommend it highly for those like me who love this genre.

This was a fascinating book for me. Not my usual choice, but riveting. I was interested in it because of the author who I had read about in our local paper. The topic being bullying. Fresh (to me) and I couldn't put it down. Recommend. Obviously not all readers will love this book, but I thoroughly enjoyed the characters. Not for young children, although children of todays public schools may find this old news and hardly shocking.
I just finished this book, and I really liked it. The elements of the story made it very appealing to me... Set in Alaska, quilt shop and making of a baby quilt. A simple story that is enjoyable. I liked it so much I wish the author would write a sequel.
The sparse use of words, the feeling and truth, and the growth of a lonely man, are equally compelling in this scrap of a book. The kitten (as small as my hand) is a sweet component of this love story. I highly recommend it.
This is a sweet paperback book about adopting and releasing Bil the raccoon. The illustrations are so appealing. Apparently a true story copyright 1978. The dedication says: "To My Family -- who share my loving concern for all wildlife . . . and shared with me the adventures of Bil." Highly recommend; I am 62 and loved the story, although I understand that keeping a raccoon - especially an adult -- can be tricky and even dangerous.

Thelma Wells is an interesting lady who learned things we all need to know about trusting the Lord, rising above our circumstances. Her life seems to be a testament to those who encouraged her and loved her. I'm glad I 'met' her through this book. And I always loved the idea that the bumblebee flies when it's aerodynamically impossible!
I really enjoyed this book. Short chapters each stand alone, various tales about cats and their people. (Marion Bond West wrote several chapters - she's a favorite author of mine.) Touching, encouraging and meaningful, especially to cat lovers. Recommend.
A girl with musical talent engaged to a non-musical fellow. He doesn't understand her calling to serve in her gifted arena. I liked the way she was loyal to her fiance, even when it seemed he would never understand. A man who also loves music and is a Christian - complicate matters further. Satisfying conclusion.
I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and depth of this story. I shouldn't have been because AVI stories are top notch.
The illustrations (in black and white) at first seemed sparse, but as I got into the story they were very expressive. The characters were well defined. I am delighted to have found this beautiful and touching story.
It was great. And not just for youngsters either - I am in my 60s.
