  • Valerie A. Baute - Great Addition to SeriesThe most recent addition to the I Survived series also happens to be the most recent event covered. It isn't the only even that has happened in recent history, so it isn't setting a new precedence in the series. I do like that it is an event younger children might even remember. The main character, Ben, is American visiting his Japanese uncle for a vacation that his father planned before he died in an accident. Ben didn't want to go, and then tragedy struck. He has to use courage that he learned through his father's stories of life during war in order to help save his mother, uncle, brother, and especially himself.

    This quick read is perfect for the recommended age, grades 2 and up. There are some tough situations, so it isn't for kids who are disturbed by realistic dangerous situations or death. It is very quick-paced with just a little bit of back story. For kids that like history, realistic fiction or adventure and are ready for a real chapter book, this series is the perfect choice. Any child who has liked the other books in this series will surely like this installment as well. The good thing about this series is that you don't have to read the other books in order to read this one. If some of the other events are too scary, kids can pick up the ones that interest them. The true facts in the back help make this even more educational, something parents love. It also would make this a good book to use in a classroom to teach the subject of natural disasters, storms, etc.

  • M&L Mama - There's no substitute for this mineral powder originatorAfter some price hikes and sneaky packaging size reduction, I strayed from Bare Minerals on principle. Over the course of almost 2 years, I fumbled with a couple mineral powders from the drug store and an expensive one from Smashbox but I was never really satisfied. These copycat powders did little to cover redness and usually made me look like a super-matte Kabuki doll. My recent return to Bare Minerals has been triumphant! I forgot what flawless coverage and excellent blendability this particular foundation offers. I can get a full face of freckle-covering perfection or dab a bit on a blemish and feel "made-under" but confident to run errands. Nothing comes close to Bare Escentuals' formulation which offers appropriate mattifying, amazing coverage and skin color matching; a bargain at any price.
  • Joseph OConnor "Learningmatters" - For EveryoneThis is a book for people suffering from intestinal destress. It works wonderfully in that capacity. In addition my wife who has no problem started the diet and started losing weight--a pound or so a week. She is delighted.
    One proviso, the author says that diet soda is acceptable. My experience is aspertame is toxic in any form and should be avoided.
    With that stated I am recommending the book to my friends.
