I thought since today is December 1st, this is new addition we got in that I HAD to review to celebrate the 1st!


I think this is such a cute children’s book. The illustrations are also so beautiful. One thing I would have to say though, I would think the language is a little too much for what I believe is the target audience that was intended for this. Little kids wouldn’t understand words such as some of the ones that were in it. But I think if the kid really sat and looked at it, I believe they would get it. Other than that, I think this book is really enjoyable. I don’t want to say much at all because I would love for you all to read it, but I would definitely rate this 3/5 stars!


Anywho, this is a new addition and is now available for checkout in our New Additions section! Come check it out!

Goodreads Rating: 3.69/5 Stars

There isn’t much to say about this book other than it’s so hilarious and so cute!! Here is a photo from the book!!

Throughout the book, Giraffe is trying to show everyone that he isn’t a chair, but that he is a giraffe that the rest of the animals could talk to and have fun with!

I thought this was such a fun book! And although it really doesn’t teach the kids much of a lesson, I think it is simply just a fun read to make your little ones laugh! The last couple of pages did bring a brighter smile to my face and made me laugh! What a funny children’s book!!

Goodreads Rating: 3.99/5 Stars

This book was just added to our system and is now available for checkout now in our New Additions display!

Dear Black Boy

This book is a STUNNING WORK of art! This is such a motivational piece of work that is great to show your kid(s)! Here are some of the quotes within the book:

“…Run! For you can change the world for us all.”

“…for your dreams are valuable. No one can take those from you.”

“You deserve to dream the wildest dreams and to chase those dreams the same way you chase a loose ball in the fourth quarter, a running back breaking free down the sideline, or a fly ball in the outfield.”

“For the game of life is the greatest game you will ever play. Get out there and play your heart out. And remember, anything is possible!”

I think this is the book that is the push or simply just that reminder that some kids need to try and explore new things while they are young. I know I wish this book was out when I was a kid! Being a shy kid, I believe this book could have helped me slowly start to grow and motivate me to do things that weren’t in the norm for me and I would have been nervous to do in the first place! But I am so happy a motivational book such as this one is out there now for young kids to explore!

I hope you guys will love this book as much as I loved it!

(This picture book is a new addition to our library and is available for checkout in our children’s “New Additions” section” ) I hope you guys pick up this stunning book!!

See you all soon!

At the Edge of the Universe

By: Shaun David Hutchinson


Hi everyone!! Aimee here! I thought it would be a fun idea to post some book reviews from the books I currently have read and see what you all think about it!

I just finished this book a couple of weeks ago and I thought it was good! If any of you know me, then you must know I have been on a Shaun David Hutchison kick! It started earlier in the year when I bought the first book of his that I have ever read called “We Are The Ants.” And let me tell YOU!!! I absolutely loved that book!! But this post isn’t about that book, it’s about this one!! So I’ll try and keep this simple haha!

Ok, I was going to give this two stars at first because I thought it simply took too long to get to the point. I was around pages 250-300 when I started thinking that, but when I got to the end, I actually got so emotional. I knew what was going to happen, and I understood that the book was taking so long because you had to understand everything that was happening in his life, but when I got to the end… OMG. I think it was so emotional for me because I just graduated from high school, and I completely understood the “void!” It made me feel like someone understood me and that other people think and feel the same way! His world was caving in, (the world shrinking) and I related and still relate to that sooooo much! In the end, Ozzie showed so much growth and that just gave me hope that I will grow as well because I am EXACTLY like Ozzie and am going through some of the stuff that he is going through as well!

BUT, I miss Calvin. ALLLLL I HAVE TO SAY!! I am so sad about the last scene with him and I will forever be salty about it haha.

I also loved this because just like “We Are the Ants,” this book is labeled as Sci-Fi and Fantasy. I don’t like Sci-Fi and Fantasy and the fact that I have loved every single one of his books blows my mind. The settings and things that happen in his books are out of this world (pun intended lol) but he has the capability to make it seem like our everyday lives which I truly love. I am currently reading his book “The Deathday Letter” which is the sixth book of his that I am reading in a row! I love that he deals so much with mental health and the lives of teenagers and families.

If you have read this book, please let us know in the comments down below what you thought of it! Also, what type of book reviews and posts you would like to see in the future! Thanks!!

Rated a whopping 4.15 on Goodreads!
