Barbie& Ruth The Story of the World's most Famous Doll

Barbie and Ruth is the fascinating story of Woman behind every girls favorite doll. As a Barbie fan I knew this book had to be on my book shelf. But I didn't expect to read it in one night. the book was like mini movie as I got to the middle of the book I could not believe that there has not been a movie on this woman's life. The fascinating thing to me was how the process of creating the Barbie doll came about and how Ruth fought hard for her dream.
She believed that girls around the world really needed a special friend who they could act their dreams out with. I also enjoyed reading about the other toys that Mattel created from Hot Wheels to Chatty Cathy. The only disappointment was there are no photos in the book it would have been really great to see some of the older dolls and their accessories.A wonderful story about America's favorite doll and the woman who would lovingly be remembered as her mother. Rating:A
P.S. I thought I would posta photo with me as child with Barbie:)

First Light A.D Chronicles

Summary: The First in the A.D Chronicles The book starts off in a hidden chamber in side a library that holds 70 scrolls Moshea tells his son Shimon to start with number four. which tells the story of Mannen, Peniel, Susanna, Zadok and Marcus. Their stories take place during a time when the world was going through turbulent times. they meet Yeshua who many believe is the Messiah.
My thoughts: Since this is the first in the series I expected more excitement than what I read. it seemed to drag on and it took forever for the characters to meet up with one another . I am not going to give up on the series just yet. I did enjoy Peniel's story and found him to be one of my favorite characters. For his sake I am giving the book a C in rating.
