An Independence Day Reading List

American Flag

From Time to Time I receive books from Disney Publishing. I promise that I’ll bring more books to the blog as suggestions. I receive these books for free and I get them to review and share with you. Opinions are our own.

We received a couple of books recently that are perfect to read heading up to the 4th of July holiday and the celebrations that we will be attending. Two years ago Eva sang God Bless America and did an amazing job. She may do it again this year at the annual neighborhood parade. I hope she does because it is the 100th anniversary of the song. You can see her sing it in the video below.

One of the books that I have to tell you about is God Bless America: The Story of an Immigrant Named Irving Berlin. This is the story of Irving Berlin’s experiences that led him to writing this song which is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The second book is about Thomas Paine and Common Sense. I had to read Common Sense for Humanities when I was in college. I may have to re-read that one. We read both of these books and they were good.

Chibi Robo amiibo
Photo-A-Day #4182

I went back over the things that I had talked about yesterday in my lost footage. Mostly they were books, toys and games that I had either been sent or had purchased. I had gone to Target this past week and I picked up the Nintendo 3DS game Chibi Robo which came with the Chibi Robo amiibo character. This originally went for $39.99 but I got it for $11 which is a good price for an amiibo character and game. This will work with my new Nintendo 3Ds XL that I won last month. It looks like a cute little side scrolling game, too.

I also show the two Hot Wheels 5-Packs that I picked up. There was a Captain america Civil War 5-Park and a Batman V. Superman 5-Pack. While I like the Marvel one better the DC one wasn’t half bad and had a decent looking Superman car in it, too. That is a good thing since almost all the other Superman ones are terrible.

I also show some of the new Elena of Avalor books that Disney Publishing sent me. they send me books all the time to read and review. These are nice ones that will be on shelves October 18. One book is already in stores, the Felize Navidad one.Elena of Avalor Books
