  • Redakai – Conquer the Kairu preview

    Redakai cards were in the list of super cool (wow factor) items I was able to witness at Toy Fair 2011 that would be in the hands of my children at a rather low price point.  Plus as a parent when we start talking about things that my children can collect, I am always...

  • Enclave by Ann Aguirre – review

    Your name is Deuce. You are just one loyal member of a small pocket of humanity, living underground like rats in the tunnels and sewers beneath cities that are largely devastated and in ruins.

  • Baby Einstein New Discovery Kits – Lincoln Center Event

    Friday, March 25th, was not only our baby girl’s first birthday, but also the day that Baby Einstein had their launch event for their updated and new Discovery Kits at Lincoln Center in New York.  It seemed like a perfect match, so we decided it would be a great day to spend...

  • The Suite Life Movie – review

    The Suite Life Movie was as I expected:  a bit of a silly Disney movie. Based on the TV show The Suite Life On Deck, it follows Cody and Zack on their final spring break before heading back to school for their final few weeks. Cody gets an internship that is ruined...

  • Rango The Videogame – PS3 Review

    This is probably the first time that a video game has inspired my children to go to the movie theater.  Usually it is the other way around–they go see the movie and then clamor for the video game to continue the adventures.  My boys (ages 5 and 7) have been slow playing this game,...

  • Chime by Franny Billingsley – review

    Witches can’t cry. Just ask seventeen-year-old Briony Larkin. She knows this, Briony of the Swampsea and the second sight. But witches aren’t supposed to let anyone know they’re witches; they’re supposed to guard their secrets jealously, and to never reveal themselves for who they really are to anyone. Even if they feel...

  • Shimmer by Alyson Noel – review

    Riley Bloom is 12, with almost her whole existence ahead of her. Except for her 13th birthday, that is, because–well–she’s dead. She’s a Soul Catcher, and though she’s fairly new at it, she’s already helped lead several souls to the Here & Now, the series’ version of an afterlife. Riley is aided...

  • Worldshaker by Richard Harland – review

    Steampunk, the subgenre depicted in Richard Harland’s novel, Worldshaker, is one of today’s most popular types of science fiction. No wonder, in that it’s a style of literature that often has in it the best elements of science fiction and a technology that is a part of our past–steam. Also, cogs, gears, cams, and...

  • Museum of Thieves by Lian Tanner – review

    Museum of Thieves by the talented author Lian Tanner is destined to become a classic novel of children’s and YA literature. Yes, it’s that good. I was very impressed with Tanner’s story, of the adventures of twelve-year-old Goldie Roth of the city of Jewel (formerly Dunt), and how she runs away from...

  • The Island of the Blue Dolphins 50th Anniversary Edition – by Scott O’Dell – review

    It is fitting that the classic Newbery Award-winning 50th Anniversary edition of The Island of the Blue Dolphin by Scott O’Dell (1898-1989) has a forward written for it by Lois Lowry, who won the same award two times, in 1990 for The Giver and in 1994 for her brilliant novel, Number the Stars....
