I Don’t Like To Eat Ants is a Great Book
2019 Fall Gift Guide / October 22, 2019

My 22 year old, daughter, read I Don’t Like To Eat Ants to her class just the other day.  The second graders loved it.  They had a discussion about the book, and really enjoyed hearing Sarah read it.  With just 29 pages, the lesson was a great one.  She said the kids were still talking about it today. My 8 year old, son, loved the book too.  He has read it 3 times, over the last few weeks.  He says he can’t get enough of the Anteaters.  “Too cute!” he says. “I don’t like to eat ants,” said Anteater One. “They don’t taste very good, and they tickle my tongue…” Anteater One is one adventurous eater. He’ll try anything – a grilled cheese sandwich, a nice salad, or a chocolate cake – but he’s eaten his last ant. Anteater Two only wants ants to eat. Anteater Three has the perfect solution: a reservation at his world-famous Peanut Butter & Jelly Deli, where the anteaters can discuss the very important question of what to eat for lunch. Sabine Mielke’s beautiful, stylized illustrations accompany JTK Belle’s rhyming, laugh-out-loud text, in this charming, relatable, story with a timeless message about the importance of trying…

Disney’s Live Action Aladdin is so powerful
2019 Fall Gift Guide , Disney / October 22, 2019

I love Aladdin, so watching Disney’s Live-Action Aladdin was a no brainer.  I love Will Smith as the Genie.  He put on one heck of a show.  And, Jasmine was pretty cool too.  Then there was Aladdin, great actor, great portrayal.  I loved sitting down with my 22 year old, daughter, and 8 year old, son, to watch this Disney movie.  I remember watching the original, cartoon, back in the 90s.  This made me think of that, only with my next generation. Experience the thrilling live-action adaptation of the characters and tale you know and love from Disney’s animated classic. The cinematic celebration of Disney’s ALADDIN is “an entertaining magic carpet ride for fans old and new” (Sean Keane, CNET). My family, and I, will sit down again, and again, to watch this movie.  I loved it, and it couldn’t have been done any better.  The Bloopers, Deleted Scenes, and extras, make it worth it’s weight in gold, as well.  We laughed so hard at the Bloopers.  Can’t wait to watch them again.

Arm & Hammer Fruit & Veggie Wash works so well
2019 Fall Gift Guide / October 21, 2019

I recently tried the Arm & Hammer Fruit & Veggie wash.  It cleaned my fruit, in a breeze.  I loved how clean the fruit came, even without water.  It safely removed any pesticides, soil, or wax that was on my son’s apple.  It cleaned it well, and fast.  No taste, or odor from the Fruit & Vegetable wash, either.  The cleaning solution is a mixture of baking soda, salt, and plant-derived cleaning agents.  I will definitely be buying this product again. Features include: Safely eliminates over 90% of pesticide residue* Cleans 4x better than water alone* Removes wax and soil Free from harsh chemicals Leaves no taste or odor Gluten-free and vegan You will see the difference, when you wash the produce.  You can tell your produce is dirty, before spraying, then all the sudden, when you spray, it becomes so clean.  It’s a great product to keep around the house, for fast and easy cleaning of fruits and vegetables.

Hope & Sesame And Mozaics Chips, What a Wonderful Combination
2019 Fall Gift Guide / September 26, 2019

We love Hope & Sesame Milk, as well as Mozaics Chips.  Both products are great, and consist of all natural ingredients.  I love the delicious taste of Mazaics Chips.  And, the flavor of the Hope & Sesame Milk.  I shared with my sister, and she loved both products, as well.  I can’t wait to get more of each. Hope & Sesame Milk, it’s the new rave, and it’s all it’s cracked up to be.  The delicious taste, which I wasn’t sure of, til I opened and drank some.  My 7 year old went crazy over it, too.  My 21 year old wasn’t sure she even wanted to try it, but I got her to, and she was hooked from the first sip that hit her lips.  We tried the Vanilla, but you can see the range of flavors, next for us, will be the Chocolate Hazelnut! *Hope & Sesame*  is the world’s only manufacturer of creamy, plant-based organic sesamemilks, that delivers as much calcium as whole dairy milk, with less sugar, more vitamin D and no dairy allergens or lactose. Each serving boasts 8 grams of protein and 120 calories. Chocolate, vanilla, original and unsweetened original are vegan and free…

Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home is a true story, and a great book.  We enjoyed reading it together, my son, age 8, and I.  My daughter, age 22, then took it to school, for her class to read.  The class just loved the book. ” Miss Olive is so special,” one child exclaimed to my daughter.  And, she said, “Yes, Miss Olive is special!” Miss Olive was a rescue pup, that Susan Marie took in.  Miss Olive is a great dog, and host of The Doggy Diva Show.  She’s also the author of “Diva Delights”, and “Miss Olive’s Favorite Things”.
