Book Review By MamaLuvsBooks:?

“All in the Family” is a collection of 101 stories relating to funny, quirky, lovable, and “dysfunctional” families. I love the beginning where it talks about families:

“Families are all so different and yet the same. They’re complicated and yet simple. They’re a burden, but also a blessing. They’re often the source of our greatest joys, but also our deepest pain. They can build us up and tear us down. Families add richness and complexity to our lives.” – All in the Family

Book Review By MamaLuvsBooks:
I LOVE this book! It is fabulous!!! Being a former teacher I could see many ways to use this book in the classroom. I really hope there are teachers (especially Middle and High School teachers) out there reading this review. Please pass it along to any you know!

This book reminds me of a Classic you would read in school. It’s a timeless book with so many themes to be discussed. There are so many assignments and wonderful book discussions that come out of reading this book.
It is the story of Aesop. Yes, the same man that wrote all those wonderful fables you know of from growing up. It’s such an interesting read about how his life might have been, and how he might have created these fables long ago. It’s a very hard book to put down.

Some themes that ran through this book that could be discussed are:

  • Mentally Strong vs. Physically Strong
  • Freedom vs. Slavery
  • Make Your Destiny vs. Allow External Events to Dictate Your Path
  • Optimism vs. Pessimism
  • War of Ideas vs. War of Swords (classic Greek paradigm diplomacy vs. war)

THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THE BOOK:

  1. It is easy to read, understand, and follow.
  2. It takes place during Ancient Greek times.
  3. It is a nice read of only 180 pages (another great reason to choose this for students).
  4. ?Helps you to understand the times and how fables may have come to be.
  5. Has a romantic aspect to the book as well.
  6. Really makes you connect and care about the characters.
  7. Great read for ANYONE!!!
  8. Lastly, it also has received all positive reviews, so it helps to know others enjoyed it as much as I did!

Fit Moms For Life
(Picture from Amazon.com)
Book Review By MamaLuvsBooks:
Weight issues have always been a problem in my family. We try and stay healthy and we’ve even had our own “Biggest Loser” family contests. For some reason though we always yo-yo back-and-forth with our weights. In the past I lost weight with Weight Watchers and was even a leader for a few years, but after having two kids I need to lose a few and get more fit. What I liked about reading “Fit Moms for Life” is that it is a “life goal.” It’s not just about losing a few pounds now, but more about caring about yourself as an individual and caring about your long-term health.

Author Dustin Maher breaks down weight-loss into “5 Pillars of Fitness!” The book is centered around these ideas and he helps explain them to you and have you put them into practice in your everyday life. The pillars are: Mindset, Nutrition, Strength Training, Burst Training, and Environment. I was glad to learn that I didn’t need to be running all the time and training for a marathon to lose weight!

My favorite things about this book are that it is easy to read, Maher seems to be speaking to YOU the reader, it gives advice that is doable, and the book has MANY stories and pictures from moms that HAVE already done it and continue to live a healthy lifestyle. Also, there are sections at the end to write up your progress!

I would recommend this book for any mom trying to lose weight and trying to be healthy. A healthier mom leads to a healthier family! You can see more about the program and the book at FitMomsForLife.com.

THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THE BOOK:


1. Although it is titled “For Moms” it can really be for ANYONE!
2. Has relevant real-life stories throughout the book you can relate to.
3. Gives useful and practical information for busy Moms!
4. Breaks down the steps into “Five Pillars of Fitness!”

5. Helps to set your goals for “Life” – not just for “Let me lose 20 pounds right now!”
6. LOVE the eating habits tips and the “Dirty Dozen” and “The Clean 15″ to help you when shopping for organic foods.

7. LOVE the recipes included and meal plans (and healthy snacks section).
8. The exercises are explained well and have pictures to go with them.
9. A section in the back for “New Moms” and “Moms-to-Be!”
10. Lastly, I like the section in the back to record your goals, data, and progress!

Book Cover Chellow Road

(Picture from Amazon.com)

Book Review By MamaLuvsBooks: I just finished reading “Ghellow Road” by, T.H. Waters. I am personally a HUGE fan of biographies! I read True Crime novels, biographies, and watch Lifetime Movie Network True Stories ALL THE TIME! This book was definitely the kind of novel I enjoy reading. Not only was it a personal coming-of-age story, but it was also very well-written. The author had a beautiful way about describing things throughout the book, as well as revealing her most inner thoughts and emotions. You very much get attached to the main character Theresa (who happens to be the author). You constantly want to find out what happens next, and I would actually be interested in reading a follow-up book to learn what happened to her in college and beyond.

The story itself takes the reader through the a journey of the author’s life. It shows the impact a mental illness can have on all members of a family and how even in awful circumstances one can overcome all with strength and will for life. It shows how someone can proceed with a fulfilled life if they have a desire to, even with enduring tragic events and an unsettled daily lifestyle. You MUST read this story to see what I am talking about. You will be sucked in too!

THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THE BOOK:

  1. It is very well-written and descriptive.
  2. It has short chapters that makes you KEEP on reading!
  3. The character development is great because you feel for the characters and care about them.
  4. It leaves you wanting to know more and read more.
  5. It gives a great inside look at families that deal with mental illnesses.
  6. It shows that one can overcome almost anything and strive to be the best they can!
  7. It is a biography that is written as more a fictional novel than just a fact-telling essay.

Book Review By MamaLuvsBooks: I just finished reading “The No-Cry Potty Training Solution” by, Elizabeth Pantley. It is a fantastic book with many ideas and solutions for parents starting potty training or have been having problems with potty training. It came at the perfect time for me to read as my 4-year old son has been regressing with his potty training lately. There were great ideas of “What to do!” and “What NOT to do!” It’s very hard after you think things are finally going well and then they go backwards. It was nice to hear from the author that it’s not only me that this happens to others! She also has some great ideas and puts things into perspective.

THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THE BOOK:

1. The book has a readiness quiz for parents!
2. The book lists ideas for pre-potty training.
3. The book gives you facts about potty training with listed solutions about problems in a nice organized grid.
4. The book describes the “Two Magic Factors” when dealing with potty training:?The Teacher’s Attitude and the Teacher’s Level of Patience.
5. Includes a “Menu of Potty Training Ideas” to look through!
6. The book has tricks and tips for dealing with potty training at home and outside of the house!
7. It includes a section on dealing with bed-wetting, and it has a great questions and answers section at the back of the book!

You can get a copy as well. It’s a must have for any parent who is dealing with potty training for the first time, or even for the fifth time! SO MANY great ideas and solutions for kids dealing with potty training at any age/stage.?

Here’s how to get a copy:1. WIN this awesome book in my Book Bonanza giveaway!
