This book shares so many little tidbits of information about your favourite characters, regardless of which side of the Force you fight for. Find out the definition of a “Nerf Herder.” Learn a little Ewokeese. See how to defeat a buzz droid. No matter what your knowledge of the Star Wars universe you have, you will find something fun and amazing between the covers of this book! I had a lot of fun finding out so much more about Star Wars after visiting this book’s pages.

Summertime is the perfect time for kids to want to have their friends stay overnight. If your child wants to throw a rockin’ sleepover party, yet you are stuck for ideas on how to make this happen, then Sleepover Party is the book to have on hand to help!

This book gives readers inspiration for fun party themes, invites, décor, activities, snacks to serve and so much more!  There are step-by-step instructions on how to build and create different aspects of different party ideas. There are also cute and yummy party favors kids can make to keep the fun going all night long. This book is mostly geared towards girls, but with a bit of tweaking to some of the suggestions given, it can appeal to boys as well! I will be using some of these ideas for my little ones when they want to entertain their friends for a day or overnight fun.

I loved learning about different types of beer from around the world, its Alcohol By Volume (or ABV), and its colour and flavor. Travel lovers will love the beer maps of some of the most popular beer producing countries and where their breweries are located. There are also features of some of the more internationally known breweries, sharing its history and photos of their facilities. This book will surely help beer lovers find a few new favourite brews to sip on and love.

  1. My favourite book of all time is probably Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer. I still think about that one and I read it about 15 years ago.

  2. I don’t have a favourite book, I’ve probably read thousands over the years. Sarah’s Key was great though

  3. I don’t have a favourite book either, I’m an avid reader and read practically everything I can lay my hands on 🙂

  4. My favourite book is the Bible. In terms of non-fiction, my favourite book is Flatland by Abbott! It’s a very interesting tale, where someone goes to “Flatland” (a 2-dimensional world) and tries to explain to everyone there what the third dimension. It is fun to try to wrap your head around how we would be like the flatlanders if there were a fourth dimension…

  5. I have way too many books that I can think of. How about my favourite as a child? That was the secret garden.

  6. Such a hard question but I’d have to say Room by Emma Donahue. I found it eye opening and oddly uplifting in the face of such atrocious, inexplicable circumstances.

  7. That is a really tough question. As a kid, I loved Amelia Bedelia and the Babysitters Club, as an adult, The Night Circus is at the top of my list.
