Books for Mom: The Mommy MD Guide to your Baby’s First Year

This review of The Mommy MD Guide to Your Baby’s First Year (The Mommy MD Guides) was difficult for me to write.  Why?  Mostly because I thought that although there was nothing inherently wrong with the information presented, it just wasn’t a necessary book to read.  There is one exception: If you are the first in the family or in...

Books for Families: Raising Financially Confident Kids by Mary Hunt

I don’t know many people who like talking about money. Do you? In fact, I think most people would rather talk about anything else other than money. I grew up in a home where money was rarely discussed. I knew and saw that my parents were incredible givers, but the day to day concept of a budget was never discussed with me.

Vampires…Witches…for Adults? The “All Soul’s Trilogy” by Deborah Harkness {A Book Review}
