A Charm of Goldfinches and Other Wild Gatherings

Matt Sewell has written and illustrated a “charming” book using “Quirky Collective Nouns of the Animal Kingdom”.  He includes descriptions of animals from the land, the air and the water.  While browsing through these pages you will meet a dazzle of zebras, an ostentation of peacocks and a smack of jellyfish.  This is an enjoyable collection of words and illustrations.

“No Fear”

“No Fear” is a compilation of stories from the daily lives of some remarkable people.  Eleven recent stories of a young generation standing strong against the tide of society and severe opposition are paired with a comparable story from the Bible where people courageously chose to obey God rather than men.  Each chapter is closed with challenging questions that would be useful for personal study or in a group setting.  This can be a quick read or used for in-depth soul searching.  Scriptures references are given throughout which lead readers to the source of the Biblical stories.   Reading this book will encourage you to stand strong in your faith, as well as to support others who are facing opposition for their faith.
