The Cambodian Dancer: Sophany's Gift of Hope -- Multicultural Book Review

 Disclosure: Tuttle Publishing gave me a copy of this book free of charge for this review. All opinions in my review are my own and I did not receive any other compensation. They also sent me a copy to giveaway! As in all my reviews I am providing links for your ease, but receive no compensation. 

I wanted to share a multicultural book with you for Multicultural Monday!! The Cambodian Dancer: Sophany's Gift of Hope by Daryn Reicherter and illustrated by Christy Hale is based on a true story. It seems appropriate to be sharing it now with the posts I have seen comparing Cambodia in the 1970's to Syria today. This story is about the life of a woman who was a refugee from Cambodia.

The Sparkle Box -- A Must Read Christmas Book!!

Disclosure: I was sent these books to review free of charge from Ideals Books./Worthy Kids. All opinions in this post are my own. I did not receive any other compensation for this review. I am including links to each item for your convenience but do not receive anything if you purchase them.

When reading Christmas books I always like ones that have the true meaning of Christmas in the story. Many just retell the story of the first Christmas, however the book I am sharing with you today does not. It shares the real meaning of Christmas with children and gives an activity for the family to do as well to focus on Jesus during this sometimes over commercialized season. The Sparkle Box by Jill Hardie and illustrated by Christine Kornacki is one of my favorite Christmas books ever.

The Night Before Christmas -- Book Review

Disclosure: Parragon Books sent me a copy of this book free of charge. All opinions in my review are my own and I did not receive any other compensation. As always I am providing links to the book for your convenience.

I think everyone know a bit of The Night Before Christmas words. The original poem was first published anonymously on December 23 1823 in the (Troy, New York) Sentinel with the title A Visit from St. Nicholas.  It was sent in by a friend of Clement C. Moore who is believed to have written it though there is some debate. This poem helped shape Santa Claus as we know him today in his image and mode of transportation. (Source) Now are new book of The Night Before Christmas has been put out with it by Clement C. Moore and Harriet Muncaster. Harriet Muncaster did not change any of the words to the famous poem, but did some amazing things with the pictures.

Disclosure: I was sent this book to review free of charge from Search Press. All opinions in this post are my own. I did not receive any other compensation for this review. I am including links to each item for your convenience but do not receive anything if you purchase from them.

Are you getting ready for Christmas? I know we are at my house. Advent starts this weekend and I had grand plans of knitting Hazel a Nativity set to put in her Advent calendar this year. I was so excited to see the patterns in Mini Knitted Christmas by Sue Stratford. 


http://www.amazon.com/Mini-Knitted-Christmas-Sue-Stratford/dp/178221156X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1448759456&sr=1-1&keywords=mini+knitted+christmas

This book has patterns for an entire Nativity set including the stable. The instructions are easy to follow and very clear. I however got myself confused and gave up on my Mary and stopped there. (This confusion was my own fault and not the book's.)

Holiday Gift Suggestions--Books for Kids to Create Their Own Play

Disclosure: I was sent these books to review free of charge from Storey Publishing. All opinions in this post are my own. I did not receive any other compensation for this review. I am including links to each item for your convenience but do not receive anything if you purchase them.

In honor of Black Friday I thought I would share some fun books for kids of different ages to create their own fun and play. The first is Teddy Bear Doctor  by Deanna F. Cook, and we have already reviewed this amazing book. This is our go to gift for Hazel's friends. We buy a copy of the book with a small stuffed animal and it is perfect! The age recommendation is ages 3-8. Some of the crafts in the book would be difficult for a 3-year-old, but it is perfect for the 5-8 range.

Happy Thanksgiving -- Easy Craft and Free Printables!

Today is Thanksgiving in the United States. It is a time where family and friends gather and are thankful for the many things we have. It is a time where I also think about the history of the United States and pray that we can treat each other better in the future. Above is a simple paper plate craft that Hazel made at Lakeshore Learning this past weekend. It is meant to be a centerpiece, but ours does not stand up very well. I think maybe a toilet paper roll instead of the rolled up brown paper would be better. However it is really cute and I loved all the things she is thankful for this year! You can download instructions on their website for this craft and all the free crafts for kids.

Wampanoag's Cranberry Day -- Native American Heritage Series & Giveaway

I have a confession to make. Until recently, I did not understand why the Native American mascots were so offensive. I went to a high school where our mascot was a warrior and being a child of the 80's the song, The Warrior, was very popular at our school. Our cross town rival's mascot was a chieftan. I saw these as a way to honor Native Americans and not to insult or hurt them. This fall I have read several articles on-line (Huffington Post and The Guardian) that made me understand why they are hurtful. For some people these are the only images they have of Native Americans. This had not occurred to me since I have always had a fascination with Native American lifestyles, stories and such. I also understand why many Native Americans consider Thanksgiving the National Day of Mourning (see Huffington Post for more on this). Although Native Americans have always held days to honor and be thankful for the harvest, it is hard to watch the country celebrate and reenact a day that lead to so many of their own people's death and the loss of their land. I have written about the Wampanoag, a bit on Squanto and this year we explored Metacomet (King Philip) and I wrote even more about Squanto over at All Done Monkey. To honor the Wampanoag and to learn more about them as part of our Thanksgiving I thought we would explore one of their harvest holidays. I should also refer you to our post on cranberries since the holiday is Cranberry Day.  Our first discovery of this holiday was the book Cranberry Day by Jannette Vanderhoop.

Prophecy -- Young Adult Book Review

Disclosure: Novel Publicity sent me a copy of this book free of charge in return for an honest review. All opinions in my review are my own and I did not receive any other compensation. As always I am providing links to the book for your convenience.

A few weeks ago I shared a review of Legacy by Ellery A. Kane which is the first book in this amazing series. In the second book of the Legacy Series, Prophecy by Ellery A. Kane, time has moved on and the government has disbanded the Guardian Force and reopened San Francisco. They have even reopened Standford University (the only college allowed open). 

http://www.amazon.com/Prophecy-Ellery-Kane/dp/1457538830/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1448407663&sr=8-1&keywords=Prophecy+by+Ellery+A.+Kane

Prophecy gives more of the background of details that lead up to the evacuation of San Francisco and the start up of the Guardian Force. It also tells us what life is like for Lex and Quin and their friends and family after the need to fight the Guardian Force is over. Quin's father has been released from prison. However he is then arrested for the murder of his new wife. With his past murder behind him, it is hard for Lex to be positive of his innocence. This brings a wedge between Lex and Quin. Will their relationship last? Then their nemesis, Augustus Porter is back and doing his conning and double crossing again. This time however he is out for blood--Lex's.  The characters are well developed and there are new ones as well as many of the old ones from Legacy.

Like the first book, I was not able to put this book down. In fact I had trouble falling asleep some nights after reading before bed because my mind was whirling with what was happening in the story. It is an intense and action filled story. There are surprises around every page and it even ends with a bit of a cliffhanger. Personally I cannot wait to read the third and final book in the series, but alas I have to wait until it is available. 

This series is a fun-filled adventure for any young adult or adult reader. I highly recommend it!!

 This post however will focus on our zoo animals and this great book. Hazel was so excited to get started on these. She actually tried to make some herself, but got a little confused. It is definitely kid projects but a six-year-old needs some help with them. We of course had to make the flamingo.

Exploring Navajo Nation or Dine Nation -- Global Learning for Kids & Multicultural Mathematics

Last week we shared some books we used to explore a bit about Arizona from Massachusetts. I even shared some of the pictures my family took in Arizona on our trip across the country when I was young. While flipping through the pictures I noticed pictures labeled near the Navajo Monument and thought it would be fun to learn more about Navajo Nation. I remember fondly stopping to look at the beautiful jewelry made by the Navajo and getting to pick out a bracelet. I wore that bracelet all the time until it broke. So we went off to find some books about the Navajo.

I am always trying to bring our focus to the story of Jesus and not the commercialism that Christmas has become. These books are two great ones for doing this.

Metacomet (aka. King Philip) -- Native American Heritage Month Blog Series and Giveaway

For one of my posts in this year's Native American Heritage Month Blog Series and Giveaway, I thought it was about time I learned more about Metacomet. After all I went to a middle school named in his honor with his English name--King Philip. I knew King Philip was an Native American who had fought a big war, but that was about all I knew. I'm a little sad I didn't learn more about him while at a school named in his honor. Anyway we of course turned to the library.




We found a couple of books on Metacomet and one on his father, Massasoit. I had not realized that Metacomet was Massasoit's son previously. You probably have heard of both Massasoit and King Philip, but do you know their stories? A few years ago we took a look at the Wampanoag tribe and we are going to explore them some more later this month. I am also going to take a look at Squanto during this blog series, but the post will be over at All Done Monkey. Be sure to check it out!! Now Massasoit was chief of the Wampanoags when the pilgrims arrived in Plymouth. Under Massasoit's leadership many small tribes joined together from Eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island to make the Wampanoags. Massasoit was the grand sachem of them. His home was in Rhode Island in a place called Mount Hope.

When the pilgrims arrived it is said in some places that Massasoit was a bit suspect of them.He asked Squanto to go and help them and watch them for the Wampanoag. Squanto knew English from the time he was kidnapped and lived in England. Massasoit befriended the pilgrims as he liked times of peace and wanted them as allies against the Narragansett and other tribes that may attack. He even had close friends with some of the Englishmen. It is said that he was particular close to Edward Winslow who was sent for when Massasoit was very sick and Winslow nursed him back to health. He even brought his eldest two sons to be given English names and this is how Metacomet got the name Philip. By the end of his life Massasoit began to realize that the English were going to take too much of the land for themselves and it had been a mistake to befriend them as much as he had.
Wampanoag2.jpg

Massasoit had five sons. His sons felt that Massasoit was too lenient with the colonies. When Massasoit died his eldest son, Wamsutta (Alexander) became chief. The English ordered him to come to Plymouth to show his loyalty. Wamsutta refused. The English arrested him and was taken to Plymouth to stand trial. His wife, Weetamoo, and other tribe members accompanied him, but Wamsutta became ill on the journey and was too sick to stand trial and died in Plymouth. The next in line was Metacomet.

Now Metacomet was upset about the land and tensions and especially upset about his brother's death which he blamed on the English. He knew the English would keep taking and that he was going to have to fight them. He also knew he was going to need more allies than just his warriors. Prior to Metacomet's birth the Connecticut Pequots fought the English with no help and were not successful. (In fact the English got helped by other tribes.) The Pequots were almost wiped out during the war. Metacomet spoke with the other tribes. He convinced many of the warriors to join him, but the colonists learned what Metacomet was planning. In 1671 the English made Metacomet sign a paper that admitted he was being naughty. They also forced him to say that the English were his rulers. They seized many of the native's guns and gave them to the colonists. Metacomet knew his father gave them what they asked and it got them no where so he was not going to make the same mistake. He got more guns from other Europeans and other tribes. By early 1675 Metacomet and his men were almost ready to fight. 

The warriors began raiding farms in Swansea. One of Metacomet's confidant's however was not loyal and let the colonists know of his plans. Metacomet was afraid the English would arrest him and his men so they attacked and killed about ten people in Swansea on June 24, 1675. This was the start of the King Philip War. The war was fought mostly in 1675 and 1676. Metacomet's warriors attacked nearly half of New England's 100 or so towns during the war. There are markers of places within Massachusetts and Rhode Island of such battles.  Of course they mark the English lives lost and not the Native Americans.

During the war many of Metacomet's family and friends were killed or captured and many warriors saw the end was near and they were losing, so they deserted. On August 1, 1676 his wife and son were captured and brought abroad and sold as slaves. After that he no longer seemed to care. Captain Benjamin Church, the man who captured Metacomet's wife and son, found out he was at his home in Mount Hope. Captain Church lead a group of soldiers to Mount Hope at dawn on August 12. Metacomet awoke from a dream of his being captured. When he saw the forces he ran, but was shot by a colonist. Metacomet fell face down and died. After his death the war ended in most of New England. However the tragedy to the Native Americans and what they lost and continued to lose was horrific. Metacomet and his warriors fought to save their land and way of life.

Now reading about King Philip as well as other Native American books got Hazel asking more about the arrowheads and stone tools. Since I know my father has a small collection of arrowheads he has found (mostly in New England) I asked him to show them to us so Hazel could see and feel them. It was a nice way to give her some hands on experience with what we are learning.
