"All the other money savings books that I have read include more narrative and cute stories than actual advice on how to cut expenses in an insightful way.
The book is broken into topic based chapters and subchapters. Within these chapters, tips are numbered and discussed individually. So, if you know you want to try to save money on insurance, you go to that chapter or subchapter and scan for ideas that will fit your situation and save you a bundle. At the same time, you can very easily read the book cover-to-cover if you have no idea how to begin to change your spending habits to help you navigate changing financial times and situtaions."
"Wonderful book to share with your children to talk about how easy it is to pray. Help them to pray in their own way with the influence of your faith's traditions added by you. This was one of my favorites to read to my child at bedtime."
"This title is one of the milder in the series. This book and any in the series were a great motivator for my non-interested boy reader in 1st-4th grade. He suddenly had an interest in reading. Cute, quotable book for kids in this age range."

"We used this as a textbook for my Family Law Class at the University of Maryland, College Park. Review of major cases concerning "families" --quotes are intentional, sometimes the case was defining family :)
Very interesting to know why some case precedents have occured."
"It is much easier for children to listen to Dickens on audio than it is for them to try to read it on their own. We listened to the story after seeing the movie and play. A nice way to show the langage of Dickens to children, once they are familiar with the storyline, the language is easier to understand."
"Story description is missing from automatic entry. Back cover:
"Colt Vittorio has never run a race, or even walked down the street on his own. Having spina bifida means that he sees the world from a wheelchair, and he hates being different from other kids. Then his mother signs him up for a riding program. Colt feels tall and fast on his horse, and it seems as if his dreams are coming true --- until an accident threatens his newfound freedom. Will he ever be allowed to ride a horse again?"
School Library Journal review on back cover:
"Readers will be affected by Colt's triumphs and failures . . . . An uplifting story."
