A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein

Who has not read A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein? I bet you cannot name one person who has not read this wonderful book.


A Light in the Attic delights with remarkable characters and hilariously profound poems in a collection readers will return to again and again.

Here is the attic you will find Backward Bill, Sour Face Ann, the Meehoo with an Exactlywatt, and the Polar Bear in the Frigidaire. You will talk with Broiled Face, and find out what happens when Somebody steals your knees, you get caught by the Quick-Digesting Gink, a Mountain snores, and They Put a Brassiere on the Camel.

Come on up to the attic of Shel Silverstein and let the light bring you home.

I remember reading this book when I was a child, and would laugh at all of the silly poems that was told. Thirty years later, I picked it up again, and I laughed again. Reading some of my favorite poems to my husband while we sat outside and enjoyed the sun.

Reading the A Light in the Attic brought me back to my childhood, and helped me escape the chaos, and put a smile on my face.

If you would like the feeling of your childhood, please, pick it up, and read it in your fort, in the playground, or even just outside with your family and share the silly poems.


Blog Tour Stop: Time to Refresh by Karen Brown Tyson

Where was this book when I lost my job two days after my birthday back in February? LOL. I mean seriously, this book could have saved me some trouble of going through the unknown.

Time to Refresh is a book about what to do when you are laid off, fired, or you are in the sidelines. Religious or not, this book is for anyone who has been through what I had been through.

It is a refreshing book to know that you are definitely taken care of from a higher power. And, that you are not alone.

It delivers patience, instructions on how to get to the next step of unemployment (no, not unemployment insurance), but to know what to do.
