Reading with my kids is a special treat.  Now that my handsome boy is a great reader, I love picking up new books for him.  I received an invitation to do a review on My Gentle Barn, which I had assumed was a children’s book, but was quite wrong.  I was pleasantly surprised that it was a true story written by Ellie Laks about her life and the history behind The Gentle Barn currently located in Santa Clarita.

Since we love to read, it’s always fun to check out new books, especially when you get a chance to work with directly the authors or illustrators, so when I was put in touch with Israel Sanchez, I was delighted to receive a copy of the book he illustrated: “The Dinosaur Tooth Fairy”.
