The two books we reviewed were Wicked Jack and Just Fine The Way They Are.
Wicked Jack is meaner than a rattlesnake. This book is an adaptation of old folktales which are said to be where the origin of Jack-O-Lanterns came from. The book was a little on the spooky side while still staying age appropriate. It was a fun way to learn about the old folktale, and just in time for Halloween!
Just Fine The way They Are is a really great book about the way the dirt roads of the 1800's turned into the U.S. highway system of today. Little Dude especially loved this book. It was great because it really kept him interested in the story while he got to learn about dirt roads, rail roads, and interstates.

We had a great time reading both books, and I know that they will be on the top of our "book pile" for sometime!
