Please Stop Laughing at Me: One Woman's Inspirational Journey by By Jodee Blanco

Book Description

While other children were daydreaming about dances, first kisses, and college, Jodee Blanco was trying to figure out how to go from homeroom to study hall without being taunted or spit upon as she walked through the halls.

This powerful, unforgettable memoir chronicles how one child was shunned--and even physically abused--by her classmates from elementary school through high school. It is an unflinching look at what it means to be the outcast, how even the most loving parents can get it all wrong, why schools are often unable to prevent disaster, and how bullying has been misunderstood and mishandled by the mental health community.

You will be shocked, moved, and ultimately inspired by this harrowing tale of survival against insurmountable odds. This vivid story will open your eyes to the harsh realities and long-term consequences of bullying--and how all of us can make a difference in the lives of teens today.

My Comments:

I requested this book because I wanted to know more about bullying. There are more and more case of bullying reported in school  in this country and I wanted to find out more on what is the cause of it. Any prevention or how to avoid these case from happening.

From this book, I found that that bullying can happen for not much reason at all.  It can be a simple peer pressure or just that they don't like who you are friend with.

I am shocked at what Jodee Blanco had gone through trying to fit in with the popular crowd. The bullying was so bad till she had to change school. Although she said she managed to come in terms her past it when she attended her high school reunion but based on how this book is written, I feel that she had yet to fully let go of her past.

Would it have been better if she had not tried so hard to fit in? Maybe find her own group of friend?

My disappointment in this book is that it did not much solution on how to stop or prevent bulling from happen. Neither provide much information on how the school authorities could have helped. This books feels more like a memoirs instead of and inspirational book

The Final Summit by Andy Andrews

Book Description

David Ponder is back. This time the fate of mankind is in his hands.
This is mankind’s last chance. Centuries of greed, pride, and hate have sent humanity hurtling toward disaster, and far from its original purpose. There is only one solution that can reset the compass and right the ship, and it consists of only two words.
With time running out, it is up to David Ponder and a cast of history’s best and brightest minds to uncover this solution before it is too late. The catch? They are allowed only five tries to discover the answer.
Readers first encountered David Ponder in The Traveler's Gift. Now, in The Final Summit, Andrews combines a riveting narrative with astounding history in order to show us the one thing we must do when we don’t know what to do.
The question is "What does humanity need to do, individually and collectively, to restore itself to the path towards successful civilization?"
This is an interesting book. Have the element of time travelling and holy intervention in the form of an Angel Gabriel. 
It is interesting to read what historical figure like Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill and even Joan of Arc have to say about this. I love this part. 
There is just too many possible answer to the question. It kept me reading on and on till I could not stand the suspense and I did a very bad thing. I flipped to the last page and looks at the ending.
yes, for me this is a good book to read.

Read and Share: The Ultimate DVD Bible - Volume 2

Product Description
A Bible storybook with DVDs to help you share the joy and wonder of God’s Word with the children in your life.

These bite-sized vignettes in book and DVD presentations are perfect for the attention span of little ones, and give parents maximum flexibility to fit any time frame. This volume contains more than 100 beloved Bible stories, including time-honored favorites like Joseph, Moses, Balaam, The Promised Land, Solomon, Elisha, Daniel, Jonah, The Boy Jesus, Miracles of Jesus, Jesus’ Death and Resurrection, and many more.


The book

First thing comes to mind is, this is a heavy book. Not in the sense that it's hard to read or digest but rather that it is hardcover and have 224 pages. Most of the stories in this book are from the Old Testament

I like the illustration as it's simple. Stories are told with simple wordings. Not many big words. Easy for children to read for themselves or with the help of an adult.

There is a scripture reference is given for each story in case you want to look it up in the Bible.

In my opinion, the book is suitable for kids around the age of 4 to 8 years old.

The DVDs

There are two DVD which comes with the book. In the DVD there are selected 26 stories from the book. The cartoon is simple nothing fancy. And the way they talk is rather slow to emphasis on what they are saying. Language used also simple.

It is just too bad the stories told in the DVD are not in sequence with stories in the book.

I think the DVD is suitable for toddlers and kids around 3-5 years old. Older kids would find the DVD not much of a challenge.

Thomas Nelson gave me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
