Enemy Pie | Derek Munson, Tara Calahan King
post image
Pickpick

This RF picture book written by Derek Munson and illustrated by Tara Calahan King would be good for RA. A boy named Jeremy Ross moved into a new town and his house is next to his number one enemy. His dad has the perfect recipe to get rid of enemies called Enemy Pie, but he would only agree to make it if he spends an entire day playing with the enemy!

sbombasi After hanging out with his enemy he seems to not be all that bad after all and actually wants to be friends with him. But, with the promise of making the Enemy pie…is it still an enemy pie? Was there anything nasty about the pie after all? Find out! This is a nice book for kids to learn how to make friends or deal with conflict with someone. #ucflae3414f19 2d
sbombasi This teacher guide has multiple activities to go along with the book that reaches across the curriculum. I particularly like the activity of creating a friendship pie.

I‘m so proud of my 5 year old! He is starting to read on his own! He checked out this Elephant and Piggie book from the school library and has been reading it to me.

Nute Such an exciting time in a young child‘s life...learning to read and experiencing literature on their own. Way to go! 2d
Tamra Such a fun age of discovery! I was so grateful to have Mo teach my daughter to read. 😊 2d

I really enjoy family sagas and this was no exception. I read Fever earlier this year and I am definitely a fan of Keane‘s writing. She creates complex characters who are flawed in the most realistic, human way.

My photos of pages from the book have SPOILERS. What a great book, spanning 40 years of two families who live next door and both husbands are police officers originally from Ireland. I just read an interview with the author and she said that basically adults are the same people they were as children. We get to know Kate and Peter as young children and adults. Serious mental illness and child neglect shape a characters present and future life.

I have tried on multiple occasions to sit down and read this book, I had a hard time getting past what I had heard about it before I even got started, which is interesting because one of the points of the book so far challenges our preconceived perception of God also. I am about 4 hours through the audio book and am completely engrossed in it, I keep going back to hear parts again to gain a better understanding. Lovely, can‘t wait to finish it!

Not only did the beautiful cover suck me in, but the story did too. Loved the writing, as well as the multi-faceted aspects of this story. Bittersweet, but enjoyable.

Megabooks Totally agree! 1w

The Marriage Book | NICKY. LEE LEE (SILA.), Sila Lee
Pickpick

I can‘t say enough about this book! My husband and I are Christian pastors and have been married almost 15 years. This is a wonderful, fairly comprehensible take on issues and practical steps to help deal with them to see a healthy and thriving marriage formed. Helpful to anyone: those pre-married and those in their second decade and beyond.

First read for me from this author and I'll be back for more. The main character had a lot going on that is definitely relatable and had to make some hard choices. Win from me!
