I confess that I have greatly struggled with today’s Wordless Wednesday post. This book is so beautiful, so clever, and so powerful – words just don’t do it justice. I have been tempted to simply post the photos and the awesome Q&A with Marla Frazee; but that probably isn’t fair. I’ll do my best to analyze it, but please keep in mind – it is worth so much more than my words. Take a look at this heartbreakingly beautiful story of two characters who are much different than they seem, and end up needing each other much more than they realized.

One of the most memorable parts of childhood summers would have to be going to camp. Whether it be band camp, or church camp, or scout camp or Grandparent camp, the mere act of going away for a whole week and experiencing something different is epic as a child.

Here is A Couple of Boys Have the Best Week Ever by Marla Frazee, 2008.Continue reading “Book Review: A Couple Of Boys Have The Best Week Ever By Marla Frazee”

This book is fantastic. Not being much of a Santa lover myself, this book completely changes my mind about the jolly fellow. This is a story about that famous guy in the red suit that pretty much only gets talked about in December. If you’ve ever wondered how on earth dear old Santa gets everything done and always just right, this is the book for you.Continue reading “Day 25 – Book 22: Santa Claus: The World’s Number One Toy Expert”
