This story follows history well and gives a great impression of realism. Yet it is easy enough for children to understand if it is read to the young ones. Amazing how the author weaves the story from St. Nicholas of the 4th century through the different incarnations to today's Santa. I was amazed at the people from whom help was given and for how long.


Breastfeeding Your Baby (National Childbirth Trust Guide)

Really good overview with lots for the beginner to learn. There is much here for the returning mother to learn here too or just refresh her memory.

One woman's real life adventure of moving to Alaska gets the FAQ. Cora and Milt give the answers to the questions so many ask in part 2 of her books. She and Milt take some of the mystique out of life in the Aleutians and how much hard work it takes. Dear Cora brings readers up to date on where Chuck and Randall are in life. The end chapter has letters and messages and pictures of the WWII military personnel who were there fighting the Japanese.

The Frugal Gourmet Cooks Italian: Recipes from the New and Old Worlds Simplified for the American Kitchen
Review Date: 11/25/2009


great narrative accompanying excellent recipes. An overview for new cooks of gadgets, herbs and spices used and tools that are used in the recipes or by the author as well as cooking terms and what they mean. Recipes go from Sicily to the very northern reaches of the country. Wide range of tastes to appeal to almost everyone.


The Frugal Gourmet Cooks Three Ancient Cuisines: China, Greece, and Rome
Review Date: 12/16/2009


Love the recipes for Greek and Roman cooking. I don't do Chinese dishes and so can't speak on them but knowing the Frug, they are excellent as well. There are enough to give a smattering in all types of recipes from appetizers to desserts and everything in between.

Love Cora's way of writing. Her family sounds so wonderful in the book as I am sure they must be in real life. She doesn't romanticize the life in Alaska the way some do. Makes me want to move there for some fun and adventure.

An interesting perspective of the in the Deep South that is not often given. Set in the turbulent 50's and 60's with flashbacks to the 20's and 30's, the viewpoints of the servants is very enlightening. How these women specifically and men to a lesser extent deal with their employers, who at times are so disrespectful to them, is amazing.
