Fablehaven Book of Imagination by Brandon Mull Just in time for Christmas

Have you read the Fablehaven series? No, okay, we'll pause and take a deep breath while you go check them out NOW! Okay, but seriously, I LOVE this series. My kids LOVE this series. There are 5 books to be devoured and now, just in time for Christmas, Brandon Mull has created an interactive book with all kinds of games, puzzles, even recipes (for slime and such) that will be perfect for the kiddos. The new Fablehaven Book of Imagination  is a hit for boys and girls in my house from ages 5-13 so if you're looking for something unique to add to that pile of presents, check out this new book!

I loved the design of this book made for those little wizards with large font, lots of interactive ways to create and play, and fun illustrations!
Here's a little more about this book:
Learn how to make Wizard Slime, create fairy fashions, and solve the Dreamstone maze in this first-ever interactive book of Fablehaven awesomeness. And that s just the beginning: *Make your own origami model of Raxtus the dragon *Draw a map of your own magical preserve *Practice withstanding a distracter spell *Solve riddles from the sphinx *Learn how to play a game of Shadow Tag *Learn how to draw a dragon *Color detailed coloring pages of Fablehaven creatures *Make an enchanted rain stick *Learn to cook Ogre Stew *And much, much more . .
And within the pages of this book are secret codes that will help readers discover a secret message from Brandon Mull about Dragonwatch, the sequel series to Fablehaven.
This book even has a recipe for wizard slime and here's a cool video

You've Got This! Book Review for Teens

Today I'm happy to be a part of the blog tour for a new book compiled for teens. You've Got This: How to Look Up When Life Has You Down was compiled by Elise Hahl and is filled with stories and anecdotes about all facets of life by a lineup of incredible people. This book was written by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints and I love how each author shares insight into the tough struggles that teens will face as part of growing up and how they really can say, "I've got this!" and be happy.
Youve got this

I was interested in this book because I have 5 kids and my oldest daughter is now a teenager. I love to have resources on hand where someone else besides Mom or Dad can share insight on life. Sometimes hearing it from someone else can make all the difference. Each of the authors contributing to this book provide fresh insight on the challenges that we all face in life. You'll read about the story of Joseph from the Bible and get a couple different perspectives on that. Hank Smith provided a detailed viewpoint of how Joseph might have felt and how his life would have been vastly changed had he not chosen to forgive and continue looking up. I loved that perspective!
This book is a great read for teens and adults because the vignettes are short and easy to read in about five minutes. The lessons contained within aren't overly preachy--it's just great people sharing their own life experiences.
Because we recently made a huge move the second chapter by Whitney Wilcox Laycock really resonated with me and my daughter. It was fantastic to read someone experiencing the very same feelings some of my kids have experienced from the move. Her story was inspiring and I loved the way she shared her simple testimony.
This book would be excellent as a stocking stuffer for your teen or a pick-me-up when they are going through a rough patch. I encourage you to read it too!

Book Blurb:
Life is tough, but so are you! Learn how to work through life's trials with advice from popular youth speakers, including Hank Smith and Al Carraway, who have endured a few challenges of their own. This encouraging book will help you see trials as essential stepping-stones to becoming who you're destined to be.
I received a review copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
