#MyTBRList Review | Butterfly (A Public Enemy Standalone) by Cambria Hebert

Note: At this moment I haven’t finished the book, I’m about 61% in and so far I’m not loving it. Don’t get me wrong the story is good but I’m just not connecting with it. I’m hoping the last pages of the book pick up the story for me because as of right now this is looking like a possible 3 star read for me.

#ReadYourWorld | Nina: Jazz Legend and Civil-Rights Activist Nina Simone By: Alice Brière-Haquet

Our Review Nina: Jazz Legend and Civil-Rights Activist Nina Simone is honestly the most beautiful book I own and had the privilege of holding in my hand. The moment I opened my package from MCBD I was in absolute aw. The book is simply beautiful. I personally excited to learn and read about Nina Simone. I had recently seen that was nominated into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Something many had said was an honor that should’ve been given a long long time ago. I was excited to […]

#ReadYourWorld | Sporty Lou – Picture Book: Soccer King (Multicultural Book Series for Kids 3-To-6-Years Old) by Quentin Holmes

Sporty Lou could not have landed in our hands at a better time. You see Little 1 is a firm believer that he has to be natural at everything on the first try. The first time he played basketball and didn’t make a basket, he wanted to quit (and then repeat this cycle with every sport he played so far). So to say that we really needed a book like Sporty Lou in our hands is an understatement. Sporty Lou is about a little boy who is going to play […]

#ReadYourWorld | Johnny Skip 2: The Amazing Adventures of Johnny Skip 2 in Australia (multicultural book series for kids 3-to-6-years old) by Quentin Holmes

Johnny Skip 2 was a book that the Littles and I both enjoyed. Little 3 especially enjoyed it because it had a puppy and she’s obsessed with puppies. Johnny Skip 2 is about a boy named Johnny (obviously) who can skip to different places. In this book he skips to Australia and is off on adventure. It teaches a bit about Australia such as Kangaroos and Aussie phrases. It has a very Dora The Explorer vibe but in book form and I think that’s what attracted the Littles to this […]

Review | America, Vol. 1: The Life and Times of America Chavez by Gabby Rivera

I read the first issue of America when it first came out and enjoyed it. I decided to wait until the first volume came out to continue on with the story. I’m pretty glad I did because there were some issues I loved more then others. Volume one is features issues 1-6. What I Liked: I really enjoyed the artwork. It was so beautiful. I found myself just examining the illustrations all the time. America is a little bit like me and I think that’s why I really connected to […]
