Friday Fifteen

It’s the end of July and a surprisingly chilly Friday here. (And by chilly, I mean not 93 degrees and 100% humidity.) Let’s get cozy with this week’s fifteen-word (or fewer) book reviews:

1. Belles on Their Toes by Frank B. Gilbreth, Ernestine Gilbreth Carey
More about the Gilbreth family, minus Dad. Same big family/turn-of-the-century fun.

2. The Ocean World of Jacques Costeau: Oasis in Space (Vol. 1) by Jacques Costeau
The first of Costeau’s classic series. Probably the reason I love giant sea creatures.

3. Guarding the Moon: A Mother’s First Year by Francesca Lia Block
First time I learned about things like how physically rough breast feeding can be. Yay?

4. Clifford’s Family by Norman Bridwell
Clifford knows what it’s like to be the “weird” one in your family.

5. The Lucy Variations by Sara Zarr
I love stories about prodigies, and Zarr’s look at what’s beautiful is fantastic.
