      I am a Grandmother, gr-grandmother, and a former educational instructor. I have read this and other works from this author,so I give it thumbs up. The other books I purchased are all random picks. I am waiting for an answer from the receivers as to how they rate them. I have been pretty much satisfied with all of my purchases from Over Stock in the past and I will continue to order as I see fit to my needs or choice. Thank Yoy, Christine Lewis
