It was enlightening to learn about the treatment of Jews in France during WWII but I completely agree with Caser that the author included too much additional story about Julia who ended up appearing selfish and overly dramatic.
John Updike's poems are beautiful and melodic. Each month of the year has its own poem and illustrations. I read this over and over to my son and recently pulled it out again to read to my daughter. It was like returning to an old friend.
Interesting behind the scenes film about baseball and a different approach for building a team. Jonah Hill is great and Brad Pitt delivers a good performance. Read the book for more detail about the true story of Billy Beane and the Oakland A's.
This well written and beautifully drawn book shows a young girl asking various questions about whether princesses act or dress like she does. It demonstrates that princesses can be active and athletic and get dirty and wear hiking boots.
The Black Keys have a unique sound that is also reminiscient of classic 70s rock bands. Lots of great tracks on this CD especially Howlin' for You and Tighten Up.
