Sitka, your list was cool! Thanks for mentioning that there's a story (and a picture!) about me in the book It's a Sibe Thing... You Wouldn't Understand! Were you really looking through it in that picture? Did you see pages 97 & 102? Yes, that's my brothers doing zoomies and wrestling! Ha roo roo roo! We're all so very proud of them.
Here's our list!
#1. As a tribute to our great-sisters who came before us, our first choice is a book they just ripped through, so to speak/roo. It was about Nikita Khrushchev. That's pretty much all we know of it, as the book doesn't appear to be in Dad's Soviet Studies collection any more. Mom has mentioned something about them just devouring the book ... so it must have been good!
#2. Both Dave and Amber pick On Talking Terms With Dogs: Calming Signals, by Turid Rugass. Amber is a MASTER at these "calming signals", as we have posted before, and uses them quite effectively to keep the peace around here. Dave, on the other paw, says it's a book worth sinking your teeth into. If you know what he means.
Dave endorses "Calming Signals" as a book worth sinking your teeth into!
#3. Like Sitka's feline sister Tia, Zim is quite the legal scholar. The "good Samaritan" who found him running loose and took him in for a while was a lawyer. While he was at work all day, he tried crating Zim. Tried. Zim was scared and bored, so he busted out of the crate every chance he got; he then amused himself with the guy's collection of law books. You know, spent some quality time with them. This interest in the law books could well be part of the reason the lawyer sent Zim to the doggie slammer.
#4. Zim also loves the Robert Heinlein book Starship Troopers! Not only did he get his name from the book, but while he was in the slammer, Mom came to visit him every day until he could be adopted. She read out loud to him to pass the time and to help soothe him - and she read from Starship Troopers! Here's Amber, deciding if she'd like to get a small taste of it.
Amber... getting ready to do some reading?
#5. Lastly, I love ALL books, so it's hard to decide. I'm going to go with a new one in Dad's collection. It's called Medal of Honor: Portraits of Valor Beyond the Call of Duty. It is about true American heroes. I heartily recommend adding this book to your library and reading about these remarkable patriots!
May God bless them all!
So... what's on your Summer reading list?
