Adorable and funny

Hilarious book about a young monster having trouble going to sleep because he is afraid of the child under his bed. Written in verse, the book goes though all the situations where the frightened creature asks the mom not to leave, or to hold his hand. He explains why children are scary "They have two eyes. That really freaks me out. And when they stare at me at night, it makes me want to shout." Nathaniel takes childhood fears and turns the idea on it's head, taking the sting of the unknown with her humorous poem enabling a child to put his or her fears in the right perspective. Adorable and funny, this is a creative bedtime read.

Happy Reading!

Using simple, everyday experiences, this is a book about finding fun in everything one does and making the most out of everything. Despite a full day of things to do, Nathaniel brings it home stressing that the best thing is having a nice lunch and talk with the ones you love.

In society today with all the things going on, this is an important part of any car. Having a dash cam filming is the best protection so that you have proof of your side of any problem. It installs easily, and I highly recommend it. The video is clear. This is a useful and necessary device. I received this product for an honest review.

Brilliant foray in the mind of a troubled eighteen year ...

Brilliant foray in the mind of a troubled eighteen year old struggling to find both a purpose and a place in his disenfranchised world. Leonard Peacock is the neglected son of a washed out rocker and his narcissistic wife who leave him to fend for himself in suburban New Jersey. Highly intelligent and sensitive, he is searching for anything to reel him back to feel part of humanity. He lives like an outsider, observing adults around him, looking for a lifeline to prove that life is worth the struggle. Instead he sees the anger, frustration, and despair around him, making him feel the bleakness of his own existence. He rails at being a victim, his fury pushes him to prepare a mad scheme for retribution that will quench his thirst to be finally noticed and counted.
Matthew Quick captures the despair of the ghosts of society, the people who blend into the background, those without advocates to help them battle the enemies killing their spirit. Leonard learns he is not invisible, but the ability to be seen and heard will only happen when he realizes he must forge ahead and help himself. His parents will never do what he thinks they should, the world does not operate fairly, but if he looks hard enough, he will create what he needs by using his greatest resource- himself.

Happy Reading!

Comfortable and soft

Comfortable and soft, these ankle or wrist weights use velcro to fasten to you limb. They add enough weight to make your muscles work harder. Filled with sand or some grainy material, they don't have the bulk of solid weights, so they stay evenly disbursed when you move preventing sliding. I received this product for an honest review.
