The Forbidden Temptation of Baseball {Book Review}

The boy and I discovered The Forbidden Temptation of Baseball by Dori Jones Yang in an email regarding back to school reads.  We thought it sounded like good read, so I requested it for him to review on his book blog, A Boy's Books.

A Family Night Out at Nitro Circus {Review}

When we saw the original previews for Nitro Circus here in Colorado Springs, I thought it looked like something the boy might enjoy.

I didn't know a whole lot about the show, but between stunt bikes, scooters, roller skates, and motocross, it had all the makings of something that would keep his attention.

Animal Art with Stick Sketch School Animal Artventure

When we received a copy of Stick Sketch School: An Animal Artventure by Billy Attinger and Rachel Kochakis, I knew it was a great choice for the boy.

Last year, when we lived in Washington, he created an sea animal comic strip, with facts and drawings of all his favorite creatures, as a submission project for a marine life science camp he wanted to attend.  I knew he'd love the chance to try to draw even more animals.
