“The Joys of Travelling” by David Short

Book Review:

David Short has always enjoyed traveling. But he’s never liked traveling with a tour guide or on planned excursions. He likes to travel on foot, train, car, and bike. He has adventures that are so exciting from climbing the Pyramids in Egypt to capturing snakes in a jar in Libia.  You will love listening to his adventures! Read about this, and you will be inspired to travel in a new way! – Kiera and Levi

“You Can’t Do It!” by Matthew Hawkins

Book Review:

When Matthew Hawkings was a little boy, he dreamed of being a film director.  Everybody, including himself, said that he couldn’t do it.  It wasn’t until years later, when he had his first son, that he decided to stop listening to the voices telling him “you can’t do” it, and start believing that he could.  – Kiera and Esme
