Book Review: Roxie Munro's Go!Go!Go!

I got the chance to review Roxie Munro's Go! Go! Go!

I have a 2-year-old son who absolutely loves books. His two older sisters know how to read, and he wants to read when they do. Except, well, 2-year-olds that can read are scary. But we give him books and let him pretend.

Then we got Roxie Munro's GO!GO!GO! And now he has sat with this book for 30 minutes at a stretch, several times, and gone through every last flap. He knows how to find the fish and make it disappear, he unfolds every last flap. This book has picture depth that holds his attention.

Also, the flaps are sturdy. Will they hold up for a long, long time? Maybe not, but they also don't rip very easily. Hey, we're talking toddlers, right? There are some things you can't guarantee against forever!

Just to show you, here's a video of the primary reviewer:

  1. Doug--Thanks very much to you and your adorable two-year-old for the great shout-out to Roxie Munro's GO! GO! GO! I'm Roxie's editor at Sterling Publishing and we had a ball working on the book together. We couldn't be happier to see it in the hands of an appreciative kiddo! All best wishes, Meredith Mundy Wasinger, Sterling Publishing

  3. Wow! This has to be the cutest book reviewer I've ever seen. His comments are so descriptive. Of course, being his nanny (grandmother), I'm not one bit biased in my assessment. He made ME want to go out and buy the book!

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…

Book: By the Waters of Babylon

Worship. It is what the church does as we strive to honor God with our lips and our lives. And then, many churches argue about worship. I have about a half-dozen books on my shelf about worship, but adding Scott Aniol’s By the Waters of Babylon to the shelf has been excellent.

First of all, Aniol’s work is not based on solving a musical debate. While that branch of worship is often the most troublesome in the local church, By the Waters of Babylon takes a broader view. The starting point is the place of the church. That place is a parallel of Psalm 137, where the people of God, Israel, found themselves in a strange land. The people of God, again, find themselves in a strange land.
Second, in summary, the book works logically to the text of Scripture, primarily Psalm 137 but well-filled with other passages. Then it works outward from how the text addresses the problems submitted in the first chapter into how worship, specifically corporate worship, should look in the 21st century Weste…
