God and Me Book Review

It is so important for our kids today to be taught about our God. He is the Master and Creator of everything. The school system today does not help in any way. In fact they hinder most of the time. I love that Thomas Nelson has so many books for parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles can get the resources to teach them.

God and Me has such beautiful pages with 365 daily devotions. This book is by Penny Boshoff.

Each page has bright colors and children playing. Kids love to look at other kids playing around. So these pictures should keep the attention of your child.

This book is hardback with nice sturdy pages.

Who it's for
Boy 5-7
Boy 7-10
Girl 5-7
Girl 7-10

Each one of these beautifully illustrated books is $19.99

or $14.39 at Amazon

'History's Greatest Generals' Audiobook Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Product Description
From the #1 bestselling author of The Crusades and the Soldiers of the Cross comes an exciting new audiobook on the greatest minds of military leadership in history. Whether it is Hannibal of Carthage marching elephants across the Alps and attacking the heart of Rome, Khalid ibn al-Walid boasting an undefeated military career and destroying the Persian Empire while subduing the Byzantines, or Russian General Alexander Suvurov and his elevation of the bayonet to a work of art that could cut down any European army, great military leaders have exerted tremendous influence on society.

This 5-hour audiobook will look at the lives of the 10 greatest military commanders in history. Some conquered the fullest expanse of the known world, as did Alexander the Great. Still others were master statesmen and capable of translating military victory into long-term political gains, such as Julius Caesar, whose vanquishing of the Gauls and his political opponents laid the groundwork for several centuries of unmatchable Roman imperial might.

It will also look at the tactics they used to bring down stronger armies and befuddle them at every turn; whether it is Napoleon, who nearly conquered Europe through his deadly manoeuvre sur les derrieres and marching unexpectedly away from the enemy's main strength and concentrating on a weak but vital enemy point; or Hannibal's double entrapment maneuver, which has been the envy of military strategists for the last 2,000 years.

Whatever their background, these rulers show that the right military commander at the right time in history can destroy an empire, change civilization, and alter the course of world history forever.

I thought this would be a great thing for my homeschoolers. I was right. It was very detailed and the voice was not bad to listen to. If you listen to some audio books the voice drones on and on, this was fun to hear. The girls learned quite a bit about the war and the military. Definitely worth the almost $20 to buy. Thank you for reading and hope you check them out.

Hugo The Moment of Truth E-Book

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Come on a sea adventure with HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH as he finds out that HAPPINESS begins with INTEGRITY.

THE MOMENT OF TRUTH (THE ISLAND OF INTEGRITY) contains a great educational lesson. We as adults know the value of telling the truth. If you don't have trust in a relationship then honestly there is no real relationship. But, try to explain this to a child. Hugo tells a lie to his friends, they sort of believe him. Then Hugo tells another lie and steals. When Hugo is found out he is very sorry but the damage is done. His friend Charisma is devastated and feels she can never trust Hugo again. Children need to learn this life lesson early. We tell our children all the time that if they do something wrong and tell the truth the punishment will be a lot less than if they lie to us. Most often then not the kids will tell us when they have done something wrong in order to keep the punishment low.....Great lesson for Hugo to teach.

On the ISLAND OF INTEGRITY Hugo learns that that it is better to be honest in the first place and what the consequences can follow dishonesty, lying and stealing.

Hugo is a little starfish whose home is at the bottom of the wide ocean. He longs to visit the real world, and one day he decides to go and find it. Hugo's journey to happiness isn't quite as straightforward as he hopes though. He is sent to a series of different islands where he is taught important character lessons.
By the end of his journey, Hugo has visited fourteen islands, made many more friends, and, most importantly, learned how to be a better starfish.

‘HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH - ISLAND ADVENTURES’ is packed with life lessons for kids, showing them the importance of appreciation, patience, tolerance and optimism amongst others.

Teaching children life skills can be tricky, but with this exciting book your kids will come across some of the most important lessons there are to be learned. Like Hugo, their journey to the real world will be full of character lessons along the way.

In Hugo, children, parents, and educators will discover a lovable and engaging role model with whom they can identify.

The story consists of 28 gorgeous illustrations showing a colorful and magical underwater world. The colors and designs are great and very eye catching!

Children will laugh at the delightful characters, hold their breaths in suspense and love to read this story over and over.

The book is suitable as a read aloud book for preschoolers or a self-read book for older children.

The book comes with a number of worksheets which are downloadable at no cost on our website.
The book is offered in two editions (a version with Spanish introductory vocabulary and an English only version) as well as in different languages such as German, Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese.


There are more HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH stories waiting to be discovered. Make sure to read THE LAST BULLY and THE SECRET TO HAPPINESS, THE MAGIC OF THE MOMENT, ONE STEP AT ATIME and many more. I have quite a few reviews for the Hugo series on the blog page. Just look under book reviews and or children reviews.

Through his adventures, Hugo learns many valuable lessons of character, life skills, and ecological alertness – all amid the backdrop of a magical underwater world and mystical islands.
The stories were developed in conjunction with the author’s teaching experience at an International Baccalaureate® School and they support the different learner profiles and attitudes of the IB PYP curriculum.

Gung Ho Suppliment

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Do you need energy without the shakes and sudden exhaustion when it wears off?


Product Description
GungHo is a unique, healthy focus supplement. Unlike energy shots/drinks, GungHo is PROVEN to boost focus, brain energy, memory storage or recall for tired Moms, students or executives:

"Proven focus and brain energy...unlike energy shots that provide short-term energy and no long-term impact on brain energy, GungHoR builds critical neurotransmitters in the brain over time"
-- Dr Perry Renshaw, MD, PhD, Former Harvard Professor, Director @ The Brain Institute

Moms say GungHo helps them get through the day (get everything done) with a smile - no crash or jitters...

The GungHo Difference
- Proven focus, brain energy and memory recall...unlike energy drinks / shots
- Boost memory storage and recall over time
- Improved brain health and capacity to focus over time
- All natural; no sugar, no calories, no jitters, no crash
- Mild appetite suppressant
- Lift mood - beta endorphines or "happy mormones"
- Convenient little liquid packet you can take with you anywhere

So, I have 6 kids and a very busy lifestyle. I don't have time to be tired and take naps. Sometimes the only way to get through the day is a run through the Starbucks drive though and hope that the java shot is enough. Most days it's not. But when I received GungHo it did help. I only got to test 3 days but I can tell you that I did make it through the day and didn't crash until the normal bed time. (well normal for our house) I loved that it didn't seem to give a "high" or a "rush" it just seems to help get through. I am trying to lose weight and Gung Ho has a mild appetite suppressant so that was great also. Most energy drinks and such have quiet a bit of calories and sugars that are not good for you. So glad that I got to try this and hope you get to also!

Right now 12pks are $19.99

Great deal!
