Saving Squeak: The Otter Tale

Nov 10, 2010 ● By Anonymous

By Jennifer Keats Curtis The colorful world of children’s literature aims to inspire kids to read, and develops their imaginations. But in this new book by author Jennifer Keats Curtis, children’s prose steps up to a new level. The narrative breathes life into an assortment of educational facts concerning sea and river otters.

A History of the Kent Island Volunteer fire Department

Nov 10, 2010 ● By Anonymous

A fire engine is one of the most popular attractions to a small child at a fair or carnival. The small town where I spent my summers growing up, invited all the neighborhood kids to ride on top of their local fire engines in the yearly Fourth of July parade. We just had to claim our positions atop the truck by half past seven in the morning. We waved flags and threw candy.

Picturing the Crossroads of Delmarva

Nov 10, 2010 ● By Anonymous

Salisbury founders and families have experienced a tough and unrelenting history to form the buzzing metropolis that exists today. To document these troubles and successes over time, Dr Gianni DeVincenti Hayes and Andy Nunez have written a detailed account of Salisbury’s past.

The Tale of Tailey Whaley’s Tail

Nov 10, 2010 ● By Anonymous

Annapolis author Charles Boyle has paired with Everett Davidson to create a charming children’s book about a whale who uses his tail to fly. The hardback 32 page book is filled with expressive and sometimes comical colorful characters that illustrate the story dealing with dealing with “differences”.

All the Queen's Players

Nov 10, 2010 ● By Anonymous

I was excited about reviewing this book because I did what I was always instructed not to: I judged the book by its cover, expecting a typical paperback romance novel. While romance is involved, the story and characters are much more intricate.

Oscar and Olive Osprey A Family Take Flight

Nov 10, 2010 ● By Anonymous

Watching the Ospreys that make the Chesapeake Bay region their home has long intrigued many boaters and wild life enthusiasts, but what about children? Why should youngsters spend their time passively watching life via a TV set, when there are so many exciting things to observe in the wild?

Hail to the Cheat

Nov 10, 2010 ● By Anonymous

While we’ve heard all those true life stories about philandering politicians, what would happen if the scorned wife decided that she refused to forgive and forget? In fact, rather than let her husband just continue with “business as usual” she decided to assume his political power.

Books By Local Authors

Nov 10, 2010 ● By Anonymous

Whenever I walk into a bookstore, time is suspended. I pick up the books, fascinated by the titles and covers. I select a volume that looks particularly appealing and browse through the words and sentences. Does the story capture my interest? Should I buy this book to take home and enjoy? My hours for pleasure reading are few, but the next best thing is to buy a book as a gift for a friend. So when the holiday season arrives, I look forward to purchasing stacks of books to give as gifts.

The Defector

Nov 10, 2010 ● By Anonymous

by Daniel Silva, 2009 Don't take this book to the beach. You'll never make it out of your chair. It's quite long-462 pages- but it is the quintessential page-turner.  I read it over a weekend (OK, I need to get a life, but it was a gripping story)
