Much Ado about Murder by Elizabeth J. Duncan

I read that will keep you wondering.  In Much Ado about Murder, Charlotte finds her self doing more than getting the costumes ready for the theater's next production.  She finds herself trying to figure out if the director committed suicide or if something more was involved. 
     I liked seeing Charlotte's thinking process and how she was not going to let things go on business a usual.  I liked how she went through the process of determining if the police got it right or if something more was going on. 
     I received a copy of the book from the author, the review is entirely my own.

Murder with Lemon Tea Cakes (A Daisy's Tea Garden Mystery) by Karen Rose Smith

I enjoyed reading this mystery and loved the characters.  Daisy works with her aunt Iris at a tea garden and when a person is found murdered there, it is up to Daisy to figure out why and who.  She feels that she needs to do this since her aunt is tied to the victim and she wants the peace of her tea garden back.  I enjoyed seeing how the main character thought through things and the good foods mentioned as well

The Character Builder's Bible: 60 Character-Building Stories from the Bible by Agnes de Bezenac (Author),‎ Salem de Bezenac (Author),‎ iCharacter Limited (Producer)

This book contains stories from the Bible that are illustrated and great to use for the message of the Bible.  It pulls out the main stories and tells them in a way that young children can understand.  The stories that are highlighted have a great message and the topics chosen are those that would apply more to things that a young child could relate to.
    I really enjoyed this and choosing stories to read to young children. Sometimes they would pick out a story by the illustrations and we would talk about what the message of the story was.  A great tool to use to bring the Bible stories and inspirations to a level that they can understand.

Tora's gone through a lot of work to make her prize winning armadillo and then it gets broken by her little brother.  At first she is unhappy about it, but then she is able to work things out and forgive her little brother.  This book tells a great story and has great illustrations as well,  It is one that can be read to a young child and one that they can start reading to you as well. 
I loved reading this cute book and sharing it with others.  The illustrations were so cute and the story line was great and great to use with young children to show forgiveness and guidance.
