Around the World in 80 Days (Great Illustrated Classics)
Review Date: 7/30/2009


My 3 sons, 13,12, and 10 enjoyed this as a read-aloud. It is good for the "I don't like reading" set, but doesn't take the place of the unabridged version.

My three sons (12,11, and 9) and I laughed as I read this book out loud to them. Easy to read and fun for boys who like ridiculous and silly situations!

My son enjoyed this book. It is a good way to introduce classics to reluctant readers like my son! He also enjoyed the illustrations.

He is very much into geography and weather. The before and after pictures of Mount St.Helens are stunning. There are also explanations and diagrams of what causes volcanic eruptions.


Who Moved My Cheese? An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life
Review Date: 3/23/2014


A therapist recommended this book while our family dealt with a relative's addiction. We felt like the rug had been pulled out from under us. This book helped me realize that change is inevitable in life. One's response to change determines whether you wallow in self pity, anger, or inactivity or do you rise to the challenge. This isn't a deep book and it isn't meant to be. It just states the obvious!
