B. White published Charlotte\’s Web. Hard to believe that wonderful classic is that old. But reading about this got me thinking about some of the other books I read back in grade school – or as they call it now, “middle school.” Charlotte, and a mystery series by Gertrude Chandler Warner called “The Boxcar Children”... Read More

The DASH DIET Action Plan: Proven to Boost Weight Loss and Improve Health Author: Marla Heller, MS, RD Website: http://dashdiet.org/newdashdietbook.asp Reviewed By: Anne Holmes for the NABBW The DASH Diet Action Plan is a user-friendly teaching guide to the DASH diet.

Earlier it was reported that the same panel selected the DASH diet was the best diet in the US? Why did they choose DASH versus all the other plans?

When All That\’s Left of Me Is Love: A Daughter\’s Story of Letting Go Author: Linda Campanella Website: http://lindacampanella.tateauthor.com Reviewed By: Anne Holmes for the NABBW Linda Campanella calls herself an “accidental author.” No doubt this is because her book would never have been written had her mother, Nancy Sachsse, not died a year and a day after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, and Campanella not felt a deep need to come to terms with the pain of her loss. She wrote the book as a tribute to her mother and a gift to her father. The rest of the world... Read More
