☝🏻From the Litsy description
A touching picture book of family history.
Book 166/265 5/8/19
4⭐️ This book is an allegory for race relations. One race is blue, the other yellow. The message is know your neighbor. Don‘t judge by its colors but by its actions. Your normal neighbors may not help in the time of need. It might be someone you were always taught was lesser than you, that ends up being the help and the friend you need.
I haven‘t figured out who the artist is, but I am tickled pink by this depiction of Saint Valentine. In addition to lovers and happy marriages, St V is also a patron of beekeepers and plagues. Raw honey, besides being sweet, is an antibacterial and can be used to seal and treat small wounds. #honey #valentine
Picture book rich in historical info. Images of Maccabees in battle are nice but accurate with weapons. We borrowed this from church Library to teach my son more about this holiday. Level of detail & illustrations make it more suitable to a child older than him-I‘d say ages 5-7. 4 stars. #holidaybooks #kidsbooks #religiousbooks #diversebooks
Excellent text; mix of outstanding and fair illustrations.
The Heroes || Charles Kingsley
Short stories about Greek mythology, initially written as short stories for children – I have no idea how I came to own this 1925 edition but it's beautiful and includes poetry as well.
