Purpose of this Blog...

You may have noticed that not all books are equal in capturing children's imaginations and in cultivating those innocent, tender souls. My goal is to help you find the ones that do!

"Kuplink, kuplank, kuplunk!"

Oh, and about those blueberries. They aren't just good tasting, they're healthy!  According to the North American Blueberry Council, out of 40 different fruits, juices, and vegetables, the blueberry has the highest antioxidant level.  And just three and a half ounces of blueberries are equivalent to over 1700 International Units of Vitamin E!
