Henry and the Paper Route

Here's my last re-creation blog! This one was scheduled to post Friday morning and everything was just gone....This is another book that I read with our 5 year-old. Henry is kind of a crazy boy, he lives on Klickitat Street along with Ramona and Beezus. I like that these two series are interconnected and I love getting to know Beezus and Ramona better. Henry wants a paper route so badly, the only problem is that he's only 10. The paper route supervisor, Mr Capper, says that boys need to be 11. One day his frenemy (this is such a fun word, sometimes friend, sometimes enemy!), Scooter, tells Henry about a paper route that has just come open. Henry thinks that maybe he will have a chance to be a paper boy, after all, he's almost 11. He decides to go and ask Mr Capper, but gets sidetracked on the way by a neighborhood rummage sale. There's all kinds of neat things on sale, but the thing that really catches his eye is the box of kittens. They are cute and cuddly and Henry worries that after the sale the kittens will go to goodwill like the rest of the rummage sale things. What will goodwill do with those kittens? Henry can't bear to find out. So he buys them all and puts them in his jacket, then he goes to visit Mr Capper. It was so funny when Mr Capper comes out with his dog and the kittens go crazy in Henry's jacket! This was a fun book! I love that even though these books were written 50 years ago, they still seem valid today!

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …
