3.31 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: This story takes place in the course of a single day-the wedding day of Anjelica and Ohed. The whole family has come, including grandma, the exes, and so on. While reading it I felt as if I had just gotten off the Long Island Railroad and was meeting the family for the first time...

review 1: A very sweet historical book that would be good for lower-grade girls looking for an enjoyable, easier level read with illustrations. Loosely based on the early life of world-famous dollmaker Madame Alexander, this is the story of Anna, a girl who lives with her immigrant parents...

review 1: Yona Zeldis McDonough has the elegance and wit of a 21st century Austen as she navigates the romance of two opposites. Each shaken by the loss of a spouse, each raising a difficult teen, her two protagonists live complicated, harried lives -- made all the more so by their meeting...

review 1: I really wanted to like this book, and the characters within it, but I just couldn't find it in myself. I wanted to like the magic of an ATM dispensing free money, but I found the actions of the recipient so irritating as the novel continued that I wasn't able to simply sink into...

language
English
3.92 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: This enjoyable book is separate from Laura Ingalls Wilder's books about growing up in a pioneer family, but has that same feeling of intimacy, right down to the pencil illustrations. Very nice biography of a much-loved American author for elementary readers. Many incidents will b...
