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.

No that the warm weather is becoming more of a constant, patio season has begun! Is a cold, frothy beer your choice to enjoy, but want a new flavor for your palette? Start a list of new beers to sample and enjoy this summer with help from The Beer Book!

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.

    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…
