Oh, how we need this book right now in all the hands of our children and students around the country. It's a board book that illustrates the principles in which our country was founded.

The delightful animals in God Bless Our Country will help you and your children celebrate summer and so many of the wonderful things that make America great.

This book is def. going to be the highlight of my household in the future because it highlights how God built this great nation even though we as a country are going through some major changes in the political world right now.

Little Felted Dogs

Create the cutest versions of your favorite dogs in just a few simple steps

Whether you adore dachshunds or dalmatians, you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to make charming miniatures of them with a felting needle and some raw wool. Great for beginners, the two dozen projects in Little Felted Dogs provide surprisingly life-like results—choose from a litter of golden retriever puppies, a pug ready to fetch, a begging bulldog, a protective chihuahua, and more. Even better, you’ll go from ball of fluff to perfect pooch in no time at all!

It would have been better for me if I had taken this as a class instead of reading about it. Even though the book is aimed for beginners, I think the beginners that the author is talking about at least has some experience in working with handicrafts and not just any beginner off the street.

All in all, the pictures are cute and they tell you what supplies to buy and the overall process of making these projects.
