4.0 out of 5 stars Creativity At Work, 27 Nov 2014
This review is from: Stick'n Style Blinglets (Toy)
My 5 year old granddaughter absolutely loves this set. We spent much of the afternoon creating bejeweled bracelets, and we had such fun. There are 12 bracelets, different colors, blue, pink, purple, green, yellow and orange. There are sets of jewel stickers that number 700 in number. Many different sizes of jewels, colors, shapes and the assortment is wonderfully done. Any child would love this, the more creative you are the better. My granddaughter knew right away, she wanted to make patterns on her bracelets and she did an amazing job. I had as much fun as she did. She wore her bracelets, and they fit her mother's wrist, so they played princess and Queen for awhile.

The jewel stickers come off easily which can be positive and negative. You can change your bracelets easily, but you will also find these jewel stickers on the floor. However, it is so much fun, my granddaughter wants more. So, we may go to a bigger and more complicated set next time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great For Bakng, 25 Nov 2014
This is the time of year when we bake, and when I bake, I use parchment paper. My baking product does not burn or brown, it comes out looking like the photos in the cookbook. And, it cleans easily, roll it up and throw away. The baling pans usually clean, so there's that.

What I find in the grocery is the full size parchment paper in a roll. I usually toll too much, it doesn't fit the pan well. I find the half sheets are just right. They save me aggravation and parchment paper that fits, so I do not need to discard any of it. Saves, time and money. It took awhile to get here, but it was worth it. I just used it for dinner rolls. The package fits well in my kitchen drawer. All is right with the baking world, this week of Thanksgiving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who Is That Snoring In That Bed?, 25 Nov 2014
Do you have a grandpa? Do you know if he snores? Do you know what snoring is? Sometime in your life you may encounter someone who snores, this book may help you decide what to do.

The author, Kally Mayer, has loved to read her entire life. Her parents wondered if she would ever come out of her room, she liked reading so much. She has children and grandchildren of her own, now, and she decided she would like to write her own children's stories. This is a rollicking fun story filled with good and warm thoughts of grandpa. In this lovely town, in a yellow house, lived this little boy, his mom and dad, his sister Sue, and baby Kate. They also have a fish and dog. Grandpa lived with them, also. This little boy liked to sit on his grandpa's lap while grandpa read him a story. He also liked to read recipes to grandpa when grandpa cooked. Everything was lovely in this family except for one thing. No one could sleep at night because grandpa snored so loudly. It kept the entire family, the neighbors and some of the town awake. This was a very tired family. One day Grandpa went to the hospital because he was ill, and when you read this book, you will understand how the family coped without grandpa. Parents/teachers will enjoy reading this book to their children. Children will like this book because it is funny and happy, and the book is written in rhyme. Most children love books written in rhyme. The illustrations by Abria Das are bright and vibrant, and they depict the adventures of this happy family. This is such a fun book to read,everyone will enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let It Go, 23 Nov 2014
Almost everyone who has children knows about the film , 'Frozen'. The song, 'Let It Go', is sung everyday, millions of times. Now, there is a book for new readers.

My granddaughter is 5, and loves Elsa and Anna. She never tires of hearing the story, and she wanted to read this book. She can't read by herself, but we looked at the pictures and the words. This will be a wonderful book for beginners. The story is very simple, two sisters living in a castle. Elsa, the older sister has special powers and she turned her sister into a cold statue. Her parents were able to undo that situation. But, Elsa was not allowed to play with Anna again. Elsa left home and went to live in an ice castle. Anna and her friends went to get her, and convinced her to come home. A prince who said he loved Anna, was not a good prince, and he as found out and was put on his way. Elsa and Anna had a dance in their big ballroom, and all was right with the world.

This was such a nice story. The illustrations were bright and vivid and depicted the adventures of Elsa and Anna. Parents/teachers will enjoy reading this story to their children. A nice story with a good outcome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honesty Is The Best Policy, 23 Nov 2014
How exciting it is to learn to read, to put those words you see on the page and come out of your mouth. Your world is about to open.

My granddaughter is 5, so she does not read yet. However, we loved this book. This story is meant for children who love rich characters with a message. Penny the mouse was out walking her babydoll Rose in her carriage. Mom said she could go as far as Mrs. Goodwin's house. Penny got to Mrs. Goodwin's house, and on the lawn she saw this beautiful blue thing. She went closer, and she discovered it was a marble. The most beautiful blue marble she had ever seen. Penny looked up and around, and she quickly put the marble in her pocket. She wheeled Rose home very quickly. Inside the house, Penny was not feeling good. She took this marble and it belonged to Mrs. Goodwin. Penny did not eat much dinner, and she went to bed early. Penny did not sleep well, at all, she tossed and turned. When you read this book, you will find out exactly how Penny tried to resolve her situation.

The author, Kevin Henkes, has written many wonderful books, and he has won awards for his children's books. He is also an illustrator, and the illustrations for this book are beautiful. Soft colors, and exquisite drawings that depict the adventures of Penny. Parents/ teachers will enjoy reading this book. The children will have questions and discussions about honesty and guilty feelings. For a first time reader or for any child who has been read to, this is a wonderful book to help express their feelings. Penny is such a nice little mouse, and she wants to do the right thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A New Kind Of Barbie, 23 Nov 2014
My granddaughter loves all things having to do with a princess. She has the Alexa doll from this set, and the DVD came with the doll. Barbie has come a long way. This is a more sensitive, insecure doll, and she shows insight and intelligence in her growth.

Barbie opens a Secret Door after she has become a shy, bookworm. Her parents and friends are unable to get her out of her room for any length of time. She does take dancing lessons and that is not successful. It is not until a wise grandmother gives her the right book to read,that Alexa, dares to tempt her fate. Alexa finds the secret door and her world opens to the magic of her life. She does not understand she has magic powers until the dreaded troll, Malucia, comes to steal all the magic in the land. Alexa intercedes, and becomes a more self confident young princess. She assists her friends, and we hope all is well in this land.

There is a good mix of music, some pop but something for everyone. This is a Barbie movie by another name, and I found it enjoyable. It was fun for my five year old granddaughter, and her grandmother. The gowns were beautiful, the set was gorgeous, the storyline was well done. Nothing too scary or off putting. This is the kind of film most 5 year old girls would enjoy. A really nice film that grown ups would appreciate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't Stop The Music, 23 Nov 2014
This review is from: Hot Potato (Toy)
My granddaughter and her two parents and I payed Hot Potato for an hour. We had such fun, and we laughed a lot. The adults could remover this game from childhood, and we had used a real potato or a rock or something similar.

The game came packaged in a thick plastic. Easy to open, with instructions in place. Batteries were included, so it was very easy to use right out of the box. My granddaughter, 5, caught on right away , and she mastered the game. She won most of the games , though the competition got a little fierce towards the end. This is a fun game for 3, but more fun for 3 or more. Lots of laughs. Brought back the simple times of yore. The music is fun and the pace picks up quickly. This will liven up your holidays !

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 22 Nov 2014
Chopping and dicing could be the bane of any cook's existence. I have had many kitchen tools that chop and Duce, but they either chop too much or not enough. They are often flimsy and difficult to use, or have knobs and other protuberances that fall off, usually cheaply made. I have my expensive tools that are a pain to put together and then difficult to wash. Nothing fit the bill until this ducker with all of its parts.

This is really brilliant. The Nicer Dicer Plus multi-chopper set has everything I need for cutting, dicing, grating, and slicing. I can chop onions, zucchini, peppers, celery, tomatoes, hard boiled eggs, cheese, and fruits. It then transfers from the cutting surface into the bowl below. There's no hassle, and no mess. This kit includes:

One plug-in cutting stamp for wedge blades
One cutting base with removable top lid
One six-cup container with lid
One grater with protective cover
Two dual blades for cutting cubes: 1/4" or 1/2" square blade; 3/4" or 1-1/2" x 1/4" square blade
One wedge blade
One slicer with blade protector
One food holder for slicer
One partial blade cover

This dicer measures11"W x 5"H x 4-1/2"L. It is dishwasher safe, and so easy to use. My daughters want one for their homes, great present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tzip And The Family, 21 Nov 2014
Do you have a pet in your home? We have had many cats, and we have loved them all. Pets are nice to have as part of your family, but you need to take care of them.

The author, Yael Manor, has been a math teacher for 35 years in high school. She is also a mother of four children, two of her children are twins, and her grandchildren are twins. She knows a lot about children and she writes wonderful children's books. In this book she tells us about the story of one of her cats, Tzip. Tzip sounds like such a wonderful cat to have in your home. Tzip has learned to be patient and loving. Two other animals live in the house, Rozi the dog, and Pitzi the cat. When you read this book, you will learn all about the family and the adventures they have.

Parents/teachers will enjoy reading this book about this loving cat, Tzip. The children will be able to discuss their pets, or pets they would like to have. They may also discuss how to care for pets, and their responsibility in caring for them. The story is so lovely. The illustrations by Jofelyn Martinez are so beautifully crafted, colorful and vibrant. This is a wonderful story for bedtime or for anytime. Note: book provided to read and review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Santa Goes High Tech, 21 Nov 2014
Did you ever stop to think what is on Santa's sleigh, and how does he know where to go and what children have been good this year?

The author, Dan Jackson, has three children, and he first thought about writing for children when he started pondering and answering questions his children gave to him. This book gives us a first hand glance into Santa's sleigh, and we get to see first hand how Santa works and how he thinks. Santa's sleigh now uses high technology. Parents/teachers will enjoy reading this book to their children. Children will have lots of questions about Santa's visit at Christmas, and how he comes to make his decisions. How does he motivate the reindeer on their long trip is one question he answers. The illustrations are bright and colorful, and we can see every piece of technology on his sleigh. Many of the technologies sew used everyday, Santa also uses! At the end of the book is a big surprise, you can see a picture of Mrs.Claus.
