Several years ago I watched an HBO movie on the life of Temple Grandin, a woman born with severe autism, who became a PhD professor at Colorado State University. When I read a recent review for a new children’s book about this remarkable woman I knew it was one we should have in our collection.
Temple Grandin: How the Girl Who Loved Cows Embraced Autism and Changed the World, by Sy Montgomery is truly a memorable story for children as well as for adults.

The question was asked, “What are you reading right now?” Well, my life at this time is a little to busy to finish a book. So I will tell you what I have been trying to read lately. The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green is a new novel for Teens. It is about a girl with cancer named Hazel and a boy named Augustus. It has love, illness, Indianapolis, Amsterdam and all kinds of stuff. I would love to catch you reading this book.

Of the several titles I have finished recently, Craft Activism: people, ideas and projects from the new community of handmade and how you can join in, by Joan Tapper was full of fun and interesting information. This book has patterns, as well as interesting background about several crafting groups in the United States. I found fascinating, some of the community art projects in the book. Truly a fun and colorful read!
