Chicken Soup for the Soul: Reboot Your Life Book Review

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
A new year and I couldn't resist saving the review of this book for today. We're entering my third years as a Chicken Soup for the Soul blogger, where they send me books throughout the year to explore. A review of this book follows well after the Power of Forgiveness review last week. This book is subtitled 101 Stories about finding a New Path to Happiness. And, that's truly what you get. Imagine hitting the reset button 101 different times and seeing what happens. That's what you have here. At least you read what happens to others when they reset.

Indoor Scavenger Hunt

So, I had this great idea to introduce my son to geocaching today. The weather decided against that it seems. With the windchill factor in the low teens, it seemed just a little too cold to go wondering in the woods for finding that first cache. Maybe after he likes it some we can go out in the cold.

Sammy the Centipede Gets Fit Book Review

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
This is the fourth book in the Sammy the Centipede series. My son loves this series. I told him over the summer of the new title and he asked about it as it got closer to publishing time. Author Maria Luchsinger was gracious enough to send  him a review copy with a personal note in the front. Thanks.

In his words, here is my son's review of the book:

Cooking with Frank's RedHot Cayenne Pepper Sauce Cookbook Review
This is my first cookbook from Ms. Rappaport. Apparently, she's very prolific in the cookbook arena. It is important to point out that these are not the official recipes from Frank's, but the author's alternatives to them. I'm a big fan of the heat from Frank's RedHot sauce and I'm never sure what to do with it besides just add some after the cooking for flavoring, or just for dipping. Now I have more alternatives. If only the rest of the family liked things so hot.
