Not Cool by Greg Gutfeld

Not Cool, by Greg Gutfeld, is a refreshing exposé on everything that is considered cool in the progressive world. He reflects on a number of topics both personal and professional, and while the book may seem scattered at times, it gives an interesting look into the author’s creative mind.  Gutfeld has an edgy. dry wit with more than a little taste of sarcasm.  He takes on social agendas that cause people to follow instead of lead. 

The book is entertaining and insightful as the author explores political and social issues, the entertainment industry, and general issues in the news today.  He concludes with a chapter that lists the people, places, and things that are truly cool and why he chose them.

I received a copy of Not Cool as part of the Blogging for Books program.

If You Were Me and Lived in Scotland by Carole P. Roman

Next stop on Carole P. Roman’s around the world trip is Scotland.  This series introduces children to cultural exploration and answers the questions that children would most likely ask. What would children in Scotland call their mom and dad? What games would they play, and what do they celebrate? What kinds of foods are common? Where are the fun places to visit?

Each book in the series has a pronunciation guide and definitions for more complicated or unfamiliar words. It has colorful illustrations and easy to read text. I highly recommend not only Scotland, but all of the books in this series. What a wonderful way to teach children about their peers around the world without any politics involved. I also think they would be wonderful for elementary age Sunday Schools to spark an interest in missions around the world.
