Great escapes by Barbara Gleason

“This is a children’s book which focuses on the activities to do in many of the Cape Cod towns. If you were from the area I think the book would be an excellent way to get your child interested in the many adventures they can experience in the area. I am not from the area. Although I will use the book for ideas when I visit the Cape Cod area on vacation.” Review by Brent Soderstrum.

Grammie and the Gecko by Sharon DeNucci

This book is about a 4 year old boy who helps his Grammie and a little blue gecko called Ava conquer their fear of each other by bringing out the one thing they have in common . . . pearls! It’s a reminder that despite our differences, we can all find a way to be friends.
