if they have the newly arrived and highly anticipated cookbook Mennonite Girls Can Cook . I bought it last week when it hit the shelves, not because I need another cookbook, but because I am addicted to shiny pages of food pictures and riveting text about edibles (and life!) Lovella Schellenberg is a local lady who posted a recipe for Paska ((Easter bread) on her personal blog in 2007. Friends and relations started comparing notes and blogs and recipes and realized a shared love for delicious "Mennonite" style food. The result? A shared cookery blog and now a book!

We have a new reviewer in the house! Twelve-year-old Logan Klassen, grandson of Barb, (she's been here for over 20 years!) who loves to read, has wanted to review some books for us and we're very excited about that! Some things to know about Logan are: he goes to Abbotsford Christian School and is in grade 7. He LOVES sports and dreams of one day being a sportscaster (I've heard he's very good at it already). He's involved in ball hockey, basketball, volleyball, cross country and track! "In 2017, when the Eagles (being the underdogs), won the Super Bowl, the team had many Christians on their team and they prayed regularly as a team. The team grew closer because of their faith. This book is good for sports fans who would like to read how faith and prayer can have a positive effect on a team." -Logan Klassen- For more information on Birds of Pray by Rob Maaddi, visit us in store or visit our website here .
I have been blown away by Lucy Strange. Our Castle by the Sea is her second novel and all I can think about after I've set this book down is that I hope she writes forever. I want to read everything she writes and I'm 26. How lucky the newer generations are to have an author like her! Our Castle by the Sea , like Lucy Strange's first novel The Secret of Nightingale Wood , is again listed as juvenile fiction for 8-12 year-olds, but again like the first novel, I think any one older than that would find enjoyment in reading and learning what war is like from an 11 year-old girl's perspective. Autumn 1939 -- "On the very first day of the war, Mags came home with a split lip."And after this, everything in Pet's life changes. WWII has barely started, but the people of Stonegate feel it. Anyone of German decent is arrested, including Pet's mom, and Pet can't imagine that anything could get worse, but it does. Growing up in a lighthouse,
