Hilarious Science Fiction Book for Kids


Today I have a hilarious science fiction book for kids.  It is not often I put a humorous adjective along with science fiction but in this case, it is well warranted.  I mean a kid who is stuck wearing tin foil underpants to stop a locating transmitter can’t help but elicit giggles from the reader.  Science fiction readers get ready…

Books to Keep Kids Reading Over the Summer


Friday is here again and for Flashback Friday I have a book that I just loved when I first read it.  It was one of those stories that my son begged me to read because he couldn’t stop talking about it and frankly I felt the same way after I finished.  Despite being written in the 1980’s, it has stayed…
