I've been fascinated by William Wilberforce ever since I first saw the movie, Amazing Grace. This book really explains WHY he did what he did and where he got the motivation to work so tirelessly for the abolition of slavery in England. It really was a fascinating book, but was sometimes hard to follow.
I liked this book. I got it for my 6 and 7 year olds. It's a clear picture of what sex is designed by God for. It opened up a great dialogue for the kids and I. It also helped answer some of their questions regarding their new baby brother or sister that will be born in a few months.
I wasn't impressed with this book. The author spent most of his time bashing the swimsuite industry. He offered no practical tips on dressing modestly, just, basically said, that all the evil in the world is because of the bikini. Not really helpful.
This is a great book for little boys. It's the story of a garbage truck doing his daily rounds. My 4 year old godson loves it! The pictures are bright and there's even a page to review letters on. The truck eats something starting with each letter of the alphabet. Really fun!!
I really enjoyed this book. The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars was that it was a sequel and the author assumes you know things from the first book, Little Women. Having never read Little Women, I found it hard to follow in certain parts and characters coming in I knew nothing about. However, it was a very sweet story with morals and values that need to be read by children of today. My 11 year old also enjoyed it.
