Cozy Up With Some Good Books

I was super excited when I saw that I could review this book, Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World: How One Family Learned That Saying No Can Lead to Life's Biggest Yes. And, the book did not disappoint.

The first thing that challenged me is to raise kids that aren't entitled, I need ti get rid of entitlement in my life. My first thought was, I am not entitled. Then, the more she talked, I realized that there is some entitlement in my life. Should I put the book down now?

I loved also the focus in this book of focusing on a Christ centered home. Raising my kids to put first. Definitely a goal of ours, so I loved the ideas in here.

Thanks to Tyndale for the opportunity to review this book.

The Bee-Friendly Garden: Design an Abundant, Flower-Filled Yard that Nurtures Bees and Supports Biodiversity is definitely an intense book for those who are serious about making a garden for bees.

I can't say that I realized how many kind of bees there are. Pictures are shown in this book of the bees. There is also a list of plants that you can put in your garden to attract bees. I would probably be ok with just a list of plants and the book would be complete.

I wish there was more of a balance in this book. They have the extreme that the whole book should attract bees. I really think that you can have things in your yard to attract bees without looking like a hippie.

Thanks to Blogging for Books for a chance to review this book.

Live Free: An Adult Coloring Book is a fun book for the trend of adult coloring.

I love how each picture has a Bible verse to focus on as you color. You are encouraged to memorize the verse as you color. The on the adjacent page, there is a place to journal. What a great idea.

The only thing that I wish was different is if the pages in the book were perforated.

Thanks to Bethany House for a chance to review Live Free: An Adult Coloring Book in exchange for an honest review.
