Here you will learn how to make great art with this fully-illustrated collection of fun and informative lessons. Follow the five professors as they work together to deliver 40 demonstrations – each one accompanied by a guided activity for you to try at home – to help you to understand the basics of art and design, including composition, color, line, shape, and perspective. MY REVIEW: Presented in this advanced youth art book it discusses: What is it?, Why ideas are important, using forms, shapes, different types lines, & shape dimensions It teaches the youth about shading, texture, patterns, the color wheel, creating harmony & using contrast It even tells how color effects moods!  Learn about composition, perspective, silhouette & balance! The young artist is encouraged to think visually and create stories through pictures. This is crested for children but older youth and adults will learn much also! The book has a lot of information but tends to leave out some detail which would further assist the amateur artist. I therefore give it Four Stars. I…

Voice of Freedom (Against All Enemies) by H.L. Wegley Book Review – by LAWonder10!

I am sure many of you will remember this book from a recent Blog Hop Giveaway. Since this is a very trying time in the world today, my thoughts have been heavily on the preservation of our great nation of The United States and its Constitution which is daily being destroyed. This book is the 2nd in a series by H.L Wegley. I enjoy reading this series so much! Nothing is lost in the action and reality, although it is so “cleanly” written. It is what is very close to what IS BEGINNING to happen in the U.S. and other nations of the world today and what CAN happen if people do not become more aware and involved! Below is my review. I highly recommend this series to all! Voice of Freedom (Against All Enemies #2)  by H.L.

Today I Just Want To Wish ALL Americans a Happy 4th of July!! –
Uncategorized / July 4, 2016

I honor of the many who valiantly fought, sacrificed and even died so that future generations would enjoy freedom,  liberty in the pursuit of happiness and prosperity! Honorable men frequently met, debated and prayed over a Divine Constitution for these great United States. The Constitution was divinely created…it is not old fashioned nor unrealistic! Sadly, most Americans who enjoy these freedoms and protection of the Constitution, have never read it through, have no idea what it states, nor give it the honor and respect it deserves! Our own government leaders abuse it and make laws conflicting with it, plus, ignore laws which protects the people. The original creators of this amazing document never intended for the elected officials to greedily receive outlandish profit from serving the people! Most politicians have incredible wealth before getting elected. The Senators, Representatives, Judicial authorities and especially the presidency make more money each year than most Americans will make in several years!..We had no say in it! Even worse, they will continue to receive such large amount of income for the rest of their retiring days!!! With all their retirement money, we could eliminate the national debt quite quickly! We, the people, have nobody else…

CHILDREN’S AUTHOR, JOAN HOLUB IS A FANTASTIC WRITER! IF YOU HAVE NOT READ HER BOOKS – OR GOT THEM FOR A CHILD TO READ -, DO YOURSELF A BIG FAVOR AND SEARCH INT THEM! THIS IS AN AMAZING BOOK FOR AGES 7 TO 99! IT IS A SMALL, QUICK-READ, BUT SO INTERESTING AND INFORMATIVE! What Is the Statue of Liberty? (What was…)  by Joan Holub , John Mantha (Illustrations), Scott Anderson (Illustrations) Paperback, 112 pages Published May 29th 2014 by Grosset & Dunlap In 1876, France decided to give the United States a very big and very special present–the Statue of Liberty. The gift was to commemorate the 100th birthday of the United States, and just packing it was no small feat–350 pieces in 214 crates shipped across the ocean. The story of how the 111-foot-tall lady took her place in the New York Harbor will fascinate young readers. MY REVIEW: This is a book which should be in every U.S. elementary teacher’s room, Library, and in every child’s library!..French households, also! The Statue of Liberty was not only a gift from the French government to the United States in celebration of their 100th Birthday, but according to legend, the…
