Something about the holidays makes me nostalgic. Many of my best memories center around Thanksgiving and Christmas. When the calendar turns to November and then December, I become sentimental for my family and friends, our traditions and gatherings. And I welcome a hope for those good times again.
A Nostalgic Book Review
This same feeling overtook me as I poured over a children’s book today. Farm to Film: An Alphabetical Adventure Told Through the Eyes of an Old Lens by Hannah Miles Pierrou took me back to a familiar time. No, I never lived on a farm, nor regularly visited one as a child; but this story captures the wonder through which a child sees the world around them. And that sensation is universal.
The heroine of this tale uses an old camera to capture the activities of daily living on her grandparents’ farm. And the author’s gorgeous illustrations made me want to visit the farm too. Although the pictures of animals and other country treasures, along with the ABC’s make this an engaging book for a little one; the artistry of the poetry and illustrations captured my adult imagination.
A literary agent generously gifted me this copy to review, and I can’t wait to gift copies to some little ones I know this Christmas.

I love the refreshing honesty of So Many Questions from My Life in Our Father’s World. The author tackles the topic of prayer without pretending to know all the answers, and she encourages us to dig deeper in the process.
