I am reviewing this book in conjunction with Blogging for Books. I received a free copy in order to post this review. All opinions are my own.
Both my mom and I really enjoy Cindy Woodsmalls books. We both pass them back and forth. I have truly enjoyed each of her books and The Winnowing Season was no exception. The Winnowing Season is the second book in her Amish Vines and Orchards series. I love reading Christian fiction books and especially those with the Amish theme, but sometimes they can be a bit…predictable. The Winnowing Season is anything but predictable!
In this fictional book it weaves together the Amish, an orchard and even illegal activities and drugs! I was so into this book that the day I finished it I drove it over to my mom for her to read. We both loved it. The characters are SO flawed and imperfect and the way the plot moved…I just never knew what was coming. If you want an interesting read that will exceed your expectations then buy this book! I loved it!

I received the following product for review. All opinions are my own and no monetary compensation was received.
My kids are big readers. They have stacks of books in their rooms and they love library day at school. The first thing they do when they get home is pull out their new books and show them to me. So I was happy to review the new children’s book, Sam in the Trees. The book is written by Alexandra Cohen and illustrated by Andrew Craft.
This cute book is about 9-year-old Sam, who is an expert tree-climber. He can climb any tree but when it comes to going back down, his fears tend to get the best of him. The story follows him on an adventure to magical places where he meets many different kinds of animals and learns to conquer his fear along the way. My 3 and 5-year-olds were excited to hear the story so we snuggled in at nap time and I read it to them. They enjoyed hearing about the fun Sam had with the various animals and liked guessing where he’d go next on his journey. I liked that the book dealt with overcoming your fears and it did so from a child’s perspective.
You can purchase Sam in the Trees for $16. One lucky reader will win a copy for themselves!
