The Warden is a psychological techno-thriller that hits too close to home. It features the appearance of a deadly virus putting the world in lockdown and painting a much too real scenario of an AI out of control.

... this vessel has allowed me to transcend. My old servers exist now only to perform routine functions, and as a sort of primitive backup plan. A fossil, you might say; the shrivelled cocoon of a creature that has evolved.

Winterset Hollow tells the story of a community of animals and about every person this story has touched.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily. 

Winterset Hollow was the story of a community of animals that never saw a sour day until an ever-curious rabbit named Runnymeade poked his nose outside of their sacred grounds and spooked a pack of war-weary buffalo that were moving west in search of better lands and sweeter food.

Bibliotherapy: read books you love for improved mental health!

18Shares

“But those who believe that flowers grow in vases don’t understand anything about literature. The library has now become her first-aid kit, and she’s going to give the children a little of the medicine that helped her recover her smile when she thought she’d lost it forever.”

Antonio Iturbe – La bibliotecaria de Auschwitz

From this quote by Antonio Iturbe, we can see the value of bibliotherapy, not only for adults but also in the classroom. Books are a powerful aid that teachers can use to help children who struggle with various problems. 

A boy and girl experiencing the magic of books.

It is a fact that children who love reading deal better with trauma highlighting another important reason to #raiseareader.
