It’s been awhile since I have participated in Modern Mrs. Darcy’s Twitterature. I’m glad to be back. Come join in the fun with short and sweet book reviews of what you’ve been reading.
Kate Morton is entering the “Author’s I Can Trust” category. She writes character-driven narrative, full of secrets, remorse, grace, forgiveness, and survival. This one centers around love and loss during the Blitz of London during World War II.
Though it runs a bit long, I loved this biography from one of the most interesting creatives of the 20th century. I loved the behind-the-scenes stories from the sets of The Muppet Show and Sesame Street, and I loved learning about how Jim Henson understood life and people.
My boys love this book. I vividly remember my first grade teacher reading this book to my class every day after lunch, so it’s been fun reliving the memories. The plot is easy to follow, and I think it might might convince my oldest that he has the capabilities to read chapter books.
My kids LOVE this book. It’s a silly little story about a cat who keeps losing the buttons on his shirt, but it has a great message, and if you can make up a catchy little blues rhythm to go with it, you’ll win all bedtime parenting awards.
