A Letter from Lancaster County by Kate Lloyd

I really enjoyed reading this book and seeing the interaction between the two sisters.  It gave me a feeling of how they were able to become closer even though they found out things that they did not previously know about their family. I really like books that have a sense of family and like seeing how the families deal with problems and use their faith to work through what they are faced with.
     This book tells the story of Angela who is unhappy in her marriage and does not have the best relationship with her sister Rose.  Rose is not married, but would like to be, but does feel a bit wary as she sees how her sister is fairing in her marriage.  When given the opportunity to visit an aunt in Pennsylvania, they both jump at the chance to get away from home and hopefully work out some things that are going on in their lives.
     I received a copy of the book from the publisher, but the review is entirely my own.

Naomi's Hope by Jan Drexler

I liked reading this book and learning more about the Amish in the 1800's.  Many things have not changed for them in this time, but it was interesting to see them in this context.  Naomi had tried to get things back together and start a live with her adopted son Davey.   She is doing what she can to make things work, but that gets changed when Cap enters her life and takes a liking to Davey.  She must now decide what she wants to happen and trust that she will make the right choices.

Do Baby Bears Have Mommies? (I've Got Questions) by Crystal Bowman (Author), Teri McKinley (Author), Ailie Busby (Illustrator)

This book answers many questions in a way that a child can understand.  It gives answers that can be understood, but in a child like way.  The pictures are great as the cover a variety of animals and children.  They help the child to relate the animal relationship to one they can understand of their own.
     I really enjoyed this story. The pictures were great and they really helped the story as a child can relate to the pictures as much as they can relate to the words.  It helped that a variety of animals were used as some children may not know a lot of animals.  A great book to read over and over to any child.
