The title of this book is a misnomer but this book is right up there in style and accuracy. The author skillfully weaves many historical stories together creating a master piece detailing the horrible atrocity of the holocaust. The author gives many glimpse into the life of FDR, but he offers so much more with the background to WW2, the behind scenes of his cabinet, and the pulse of the American people during the war. The book doesn't spare the reader with the vileness of the war. At times the absolute horribleness of that time was simply too much to read in one sitting.
A book, I haven't read yet, but enjoyed by Adam. Jon Meacham is a first class author.
This book was bought by my uncle, borrowed by my dad, recommended by my dad to Adam, and Adam heartedly recommends it. Apparently this fascinating, well-written book details the history of Lincoln's time like no-other, and gives a vivid portrait of the character of Lincoln, and his cabinet.
Here is a review from amazon. 
"This book is a good book for any mother who is trying to decide how to implement Bible reading with her children. The author is funny and gives some great ideas on ways to make reading the Bible interesting for your children. Her personal examples are what make the book worth reading. I enjoyed her sense of humor and also liked her simple ideas. Seeing the effect of reading the Bible with your children is the goal the author asks you to set. Although that sounds easy, after reading this book you will understand that it will take some effort on your part. I especially enjoyed the discussion questions available for each chapter. I thought they were well thought out and really made you think about what you had just read."

This easy to read book, is well worth it. I was challenged and encouraged by the author.

I wanted to know a little more about our PM. Trudeau writes about his growing up years, what it was like to be a PM's kid, the death of his brother, his jobs before PM, and how he met his wife. I enjoyed reading about the politics behind the scenes. This book gives some insight into his life, but it is written with "you may be a potential voter" attitude.
"Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World" is one of the best parenting books I have read. In a "me-absorbed" society, this book does a fantastic job helping parents battle against entitlement.
But before we begin the battle with our children, the author addresses the parent..."parents who want to raise more grateful kids need to start by living more grateful lives."
Kristen Welch gives the reader the big picture with the help of practical tips. She outlines smart choices about technology, and she places a big emphasize on service throughout the book. At the end of each chapter she makes suggestions broken in to appropriate stages: toddlers/preschoolers; elementary; tween/teen; and parents. I highly recommend this book.
