Book Review: It Takes a Village

July 22 2017:

This phrase has come up for me twice in the last few days. Thought it a great time to share this book we read several months ago …

It Takes a Village

A heart-warming story based on the African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child.” The story takes place at a traditional open-air market as we learn the power of a close-knit community.

Wonderful section in the back of the book with additional information about African markets. Great book!

The Garden of Happiness

Another feel good book!! Yes. We love these kind! Neighbors transform an emtpy lot into a neighborhood garden. Space is limited and there’s no room left for young Marisol to plant something.

She finds a teeny tiny spot and plants one seed. It becomes the shining star of the garden! And there’s a surprise ending in this one too that may make your eyes sweat!!
