Thanks to the blogger who recommended God Went to Beauty School by Cynthia Rylant. It is a quick read and as in just about all of Rylant’s writing, it is poignant, thoughtful and fun, all in one.
I just read (most of) George Washington, Spymaster: How the Americans Outspied the British and Won the Revolutionary War by Thomas B. Allen. This book is going to make a great gift for my history-loving father sometime soon. And all those kids who love the spy stuff will enjoy the history as well as the things to decode throughout the book!
