Welcome to the first-ever edition of Final Friday Family Faves where I plan to feature the favorite book-of-the-month of each of my family members. This month the Greek Poet Homer and a book featuring the fearsome black mamba both make the list.
The Odyssey by Homer, Translated by Stephen Mitchell is my husband’s fave of the month. He loves the action packed adventures and finds the translation modern, fresh, and clear.
Mommy (That’s me!):
Blog Inc.: Blogging for Passion, Profit, and to CreateCommunity by Joy Deangdeelert Cho earns top honors from me this month. This informational read is full of captivating case studies and sports an exceptional layout design.
100 Most Feared Creatures by Anna Claybourne wins Archie’s vote this month. He loves the cool facts and fear rating scale for each creature. I love the vivid photos and appreciate how the author draws in the kids without being overly scary or gory. It also extends our National Aquarium adventures and learning as many sea creatures are featured.
The Seven Chinese Brothers by Margaret Mahy is Grace’s choice. She loves how the brothers work together to solve a problem and ultimately save each other’s lives.
Baby Grant (14 mo.):
He’s going to wait a few more months before casting a vote. His preferred way to enjoy books is still by teething on them!
