Gianna’s Thoughts: I found Simply Bliss at my local Farmer’s Market and have fallen in love with the Brown Sugar Latte Body Scrub.  If you have a coffee lover in your family, I’m pretty sure they will LOVE this gift.

 Top 5 Audiobooks for the Whole Family to Enjoy

Are you traveling this holiday season? You could get your family an early gift of an audiobook to make the car ride more fun.

We are THRILLED to partner with Libro.fm.  The program is similar to Audible, but they partner with local bookshops to provide local benefits!

Gianna’s Thought:  I couldn’t find one thing I didn’t like about this book.  Each character had my heart including Mom and Dad.  It gave me hope for today’s kids.  I think you will fall in love with this family–people, pets, and neighbors– as quickly as I did.

Gianna’s Thought:  It took me a little while to get into this story, but once Friedrich’s story started moving along, I was hooked.  And so was my husband.  It takes a hard subject and makes it understandable and relatable. I loved this book.

Gianna’s Thought: This is one of my absolutely favorite series to read with my kids.  Book 1 sets up a lot of details that are very important to the story.  We are introduced to the Igibys and the Dark Sea of Darkness and the Fangs of Dang as well as the magic world they live it.  If you have to, you could go on lots of road trips to be able to finish the other 3 books in the series.  You won’t regret it. 

Gianna’s Thought:  If you like prequels, learn the story of Peter Pan becoming Peter Pan.  Jim Dale reads this entire series which is super long as well as super engaging.  We were on the edge of our seats.

Gianna’s Thoughts:  This story of an orphan girl–Nan Sparrow– and her monster is so heartwarming that it makes the Victorian streets of London a cozy setting.  I am currently reading this with my boys who are in their early teens and actually really like it.

I hope you enjoy look through our local holiday bookshop.  We have had an extraordinary time putting it together just for you.
