I usually update on Sundays but last night I got totally sidetracked...41-44. The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe; A Horse and His Boy; Prince Caspian; and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis
*I've read these ones before and I loved them once again. I love the characters and the story and I'm glad I read it again 45. Trials of Labour by Brian Burtch
*I found this book hard to read because it was a lot of facts and the writing was stiff at times. However it covers a lot of good information on the history of midwifery within Canada up until the early '90s when the book was written. I read it for school and got a lot out of it for that. As a personal read I probably wouldn't read it again, but I may reference it in the future in assignments.46. The World Needs Your Kid by Craig Kielburger, Marc Kielburger, and Shelley Page
*Very interesting read full of inspirational stories about kids who've made a difference on a small or large scale to help other kids. Includes lots of information on how to get your own kids involved in their communities and how to encourage them to find what causes they feel drawn to.47. The Explosive Child by Ross W. Greene, Ph.D.
*WOW I am glad I read this book. My oldest fits into the picture portrayed in this book perfectly. He is chronically inflexible and explosive... and also sweet and amazingly smart and loving. I really loved reading a book that not only gave great insight into the what and why's of living with a child who fits this mold, but also solutions that would fit into gentle discipline. Not just punish them severely and make them understand (which wouldn't work anyway and just leave everyone more upset). It will be read again and again here I have a feeling. My husband is going to read it starting tonight.48. Labor of Love by Cara Muhlhahn
*The memoir of the midwife that was featured in the documentary The Business of Being Born which I saw and wasn't a 100% fan of. I read this book because it was the reading discussion book for May-June for school. It was an easy read and interesting although there were parts that drove me nuts. All in all not great but I certainly don't regret reading it either.
