2.0 out of 5 stars Not For Me, 30 May 2015
This could have been a good selection of stories for children in relation to morals. First of all young children need to understand morals, and that should be explained in a book for children this age. Stating that this book has stories that give examples of the right thing to do would be enough for most children.

I had some difficulty understanding the stories as written. A good editor, and a better understanding of the English language would be a place to start. These stories are valuable lessons, and if this book can be rewritten taking into account the many critiques, I would be willing to re-read the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Source Of Calcium, 30 May 2015
When I was receiving chemo, my oncologist suggested I chew a couple of antacids(Tums) a day for the calcium. I rarely if ever had an upset stomach or acid reflux. The Tums tasted good, I got the flavored brand, and this was a good method to obtain the needed calcium. I do not drink much milk, and calcium us important in our daily diet.

. I have used Tums before and found this brand to be equivalent to other known brands. I did note that this brand has 750mg compared to 500 or of the other brands. Please be sure you chew only one a day that is all you will need. They taste fine,not chalky at all. This brand also contains Magnesium stearate,adipic acid,corn starch,crospovidone,dextrose,maltodextrin,sucrose,and talc, beside the calcium carbonate.

If you have acid indigestion frequently, it would do you well to have a physician check you over, but for occasional use Kirkland Chewable Tablets Ultra Strength is perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helping A Friend, 28 May 2015
Have you ever had a friend who was scared of something? Did you do anything to help?

The author, Assaf Marcus, has written another of his helping books. In these books he tells a story of relationships and lessons learned. In this book, Rabbit and Monkey were best friends. Rabbit liked carrots and monkey liked bananas, but other than that they were good friends. One day as they were walking rabbit got caught in a hunter's trap, it yanked him high up into a tree. Monkey could swing from trees and this was helpful. He got a sharp rock and cut down rabbit. Rabbit was thankful, but he was afraid to go outdoors from that time on. Monkey was sad, how could he help his friend, Rabbit, nothing worked, he would not come out of his cave. Suddenly monkey had a thought. When you read this book, you will find out what happened.

Parents/teachers will enjoy reading this book to their children. The children will,discover that all of them have the same type of problems, and everyone needs help from friends and family. The illustrations by Lizbeth Jane P Amantillo, are bright, vivid and colorful. The illustrations depict all of the adventures of rabbit and monkey in living color. This is a wonderful story with good lessons learned. Note: a complimentary copy of this book was provided to read and review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riding My Bicycle, 28 May 2015
Do you know how to ride a bike? Did someone teach you?

The author, Shelley Admont, has written a lovely story about Jimmy the bunny and his family. One day he was out riding his bike that had training wheels. His two older brothers were riding their big bikes. They were racing each other, and having a good time. They were laughing and tee heeing. Jimmy was jealous, he could not keep up and he was sad. He kept asking his brothers to slow down. When they came by he asked if he could try to ride their bikes. He got on one and fell off in a puddle. His brothers laughed and laughed, but Jimmy was very sad and started to cry. Jimmy's dad came to him, and when you read this book you will discover what happens next.

Parents/ teachers will enjoy reading this book to their children. All children want to ride bikes, and this story will help them see how difficult it is and how to persevere. The illustrations by, Sonal Goyal and Sumit Sukhuja are colorful, vivid and bright. They depict all of the adventures of Jimmy, his brothers and his dad. This is a great story with a lesson to be learned. Note:a complimentary copy of this book was provided to read and review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprise, 28 May 2015
An improbable plot once you think about it. A very young inexperienced cop brought in to catch the very bad man. Cat and mouse is the game they play.

James McAvoy, plays the inexperienced English cop who becomes obsessed with catching the criminal, Mark Strong. One incident between them turns into a bad situation for McAvoy.however, his boss, David Morrissey, brings him back. McAvoy's partner, played by Andrea Riseborough, helps to keep McAvoy under control. He is hot headed, has flashbacks and PTSD. something is norm right in this game, and we soon learn why.

The sights of London at night are beautiful, not a London I recognize. But, beneath the glitter and the glory are some hardened stories, that soon spill out. Corruption, murder, sons, dads, are all in play. Very well acted with a magnificent cast. It is out in DVD, see it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where Do Those Socks Go, 27 May 2015
Do you have smelly socks in your house? What do you do with your smelly socks?

The author, Nirit Littaney, has written such a fun book about an alien who likes smelly socks. Can you believe it, smelly socks! Zigi is the alien, and he comes to Earth in his spaceship every so often. And when Zigi lands, he finds places where he can sneak and take smelly socks. He goes to apartment buildings, the beach, a daycare, the mall and other places to find his socks. When you read this book you will discover what Zigi does with these socks and how many he finds.

Parents/teachers will enjoy reading this book to their children. With their children they can laugh and tee her about smelly socks. The children might have more respect for their smelly socks once they know other people may want them. They can also discuss Zigi and talk about aliens. The illustrations by Abira Das are bright, vivid and colorful. They add to the enjoyment of the book, because we can see the colorful socks, and we can see Zigi. This is a fun book for all ages. Note: a complimentary copy of this book was provided to read and review.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Next Best Thing, 26 May 2015
If anyone ever offers a Tim Tam be sure to accept. These are biscuits or cookies as we would saud in the U.S. They are delicious mad with a smooth cream sandwiched between 2 crunchy biscuits, coated in Tim Tam chocolate and white chocolate. Thus, I understand is the original, they come in a variety of flavors.

When I was offered a Tim Tam, it was at an outdoor picnic with relatives. I was instructed to eat the two corners off the biscuit, then put the biscuit in my coffee, and then suck up the middle of the biscuit and the coffee came through. What a delightful mixture and taste of chocolate, cream and coffee. Thus is really enough to make you an addict. I am so glad that these biscuits are difficult to find.myou can order them from Amazon, but they are relatively expensive.

These niscuits will be an added treat to an otherwise overloaded array of sweet things, but these might be the next best thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh Looking Skin, 23 May 2015
This is the best foundation primer I have found. Primer is essential to a good coverage. I have found you do not use as much foundation when you apply primer first.

This is a mineral makeup primer that helps to avoid rough patches, flaky dryness, the look of fine lines, excess oil, uneven texture, and the appearance of enlarged pores. I have found the primer extends the wear of my foundation. The silky formula, with silicone glides on, and in the hot weather, I wait 15 minutes before applying foundation. I find it keeps the foundation from sweating or running.

I apply one pump for an even layer of primer all over your face, under eyes and eyelids. Once it has dried, I apply my foundation with a make up brush. I find I use less foundation, and my face looks better, less is best.

This is light, non sticky primer. I also use it without foundation. I apply the primer, and then some highlighter under nares and eyes, and any touch areas on my chin. This keeps me looking fresh all day without foundation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Adventures, 23 May 2015
Oliver and Jumpy are old friends, and my grandson, granddaughter and I like their stories a lot. This book has three new stories, and you will find yourself laughing at some of their antics.

The author, Werner Stejskal, has written three more stories, 16-18. Oliver is a Tomcat, who is very good looking and quite jaunty. Jumpy is a kangaroo and one of Oliver's best friends. In the first story, a coconut drops on OLiver's head while he is sleeping. He wakes right up, but he does not remember who he is. He wanders around and asks those that he meets, if they know him. It is fun when he finds out who he is. The second book finds Oliver climbing to the top of a big tree. His good friend, Jumpy waits for him under the tree. His climb to the top is fun, and he meets several friends, and when he gets to the top something amazing awaits. The third story is about Oliver and his friends taking a trip to the moon to get some crystals. This is quite an interesting and unusual story, and when they meet up with the Old Man In The Moon, they have stories to tell forever.

Parents/teachers will enjoy reading this book to their children. The children will have lots of questions about the moon and it's inhabitants. Oliver and Jumpy are such fun characters, likable and good to all they meet, they are good role models for children. The illustrations by Maycee Ann Reyes are bright vivid and colorful and portray all the adventures of OLiver and Jumpy and their friends. Note: a complimentary copy if this book was provided to read and review

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark, Rich Cocoa, 21 May 2015
This is one of the best Dutch Processed Pure Cocoa Powders I have used. It is unsweetened, rich in color and taste. Valentina has an excellent reputation, and this cocoa powder is cream of the crop. This package contains approximately 3 cups of cocoa powder. I used this cocoa powder to make whoopie pies for Easter, and I will make more for Memorial Day.

The recipe is from Epicurious.
YIELD: Makes 8 individual desserts
ACTIVE TIME: 30 min
TOTAL TIME: 1 hr
INGREDIENTS

For cakes
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup well-shaken buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
For filling
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4 cups confectioners sugar
2 cups marshmallow cream such as Marshmallow Fluff
1 teaspoon vanilla
PREPARATION

Make cakes:
Preheat oven to 350°F.

Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a bowl until combined. Stir together buttermilk and vanilla in a small bowl.

Beat together butter and brown sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes in a standing mixer or 5 minutes with a handheld, then add egg, beating until combined well. Reduce speed to low and alternately mix in flour mixture and buttermilk in batches, beginning and ending with flour, scraping down side of bowl occasionally, and mixing until smooth.

Spoon 1/4-cup mounds of batter about 2 inches apart onto 2 buttered large baking sheets. Bake in upper and lower thirds of oven, switching position of sheets halfway through baking, until tops are puffed and cakes spring back when touched, 11 to 13 minutes. Transfer with a metal spatula to a rack to cool completely.

Make filling:
Beat together butter, confectioners sugar, marshmallow, and vanilla in a bowl with electric mixer at medium speed until smooth, about 3 minutes.

Assemble pies:
Spread a rounded tablespoon filling on flat sides of half of cakes and top with remaining cakes.

cooks' notes:
• Cakes can be made 3 days ahead and kept, layered between sheets of wax paper, in an airtight container at room temperature.

• Filling can be made 4 hours ahead and kept, covered, at room temperature.
