The Book of Oz

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz book cover
We just finished reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Wow! I can't even imagine what the movie makers were thinking! If you haven't read it, you should. Dorothy is in it, and her fellow travelers. That is almost where the similarities end though. A good majority of the classic movie never happened. I don't know why they changed so much though because the original has so much of it's own excitement and adventure. You know you have a good book when your 4 year old son is asking you to keep reading the chapter book with no pictures! You can get it for free on the Kindle and every library is likely to have it, so go get reading!

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Indescribable

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.
