This was our second visit to the Children's Museum here in Jordan. We really love the place! Last time, the kids were running around so fast, they missed this little treasure trove: The Fort building center! This time, they spent almost 2 hours building a huge mega fort--then they role played! Peter was the cook in the kitchen, stirring up new concoctions (he made me a 'soup', and when I asked him what kind, he said it was Pistachio Marshmallow soup!), Andrew was the knight, and he was always galloping off to slay a dragon; Claire was the princess and seemed confined to her bedroom; Josh was busy building and organizing. They had a marvelous time! Peter did get a little tired of the fort building, so I ended up following him around for awhile. We're looking forward to going back again!
Who Am I?
As a Stay At Home Mom of 4 wonderful children, I have the amazing opportunity not only to home school them, but to do so in many different places!

I love to read and do reviews for Compass Book Ratings!

I like that the plot twists and turns a lot...and it makes you think. However, I don't appreciate Dan Brown's endings in his books. I find the endings incongruent with the rest of his stories--why make it a romance for the last chapter...
I loved this book. I'm a sucker for fairy tales/fantasy. This was so well written! I can't wait to read all the rest of her books!
I'm reading this one again. I liked it the first time I read it. I'm still liking it for the second time around. I like all of Shannon Hales' books. **Still lots of fun the second time around! I do like this book for a comfortable...
