Off the Shelf - November

What we've been reading this month.

Children's Books




Down Buttermilk Lane - Barbara Mitchell
A sweet story of an Amish family's shopping trip.


The Great Serum Race - Debbie S. Miller
The brave dog sled teams who raced to save a remote village in Alaska. The inspiration for the Idarod Dogsled Race.





No One Foot, Now the Other - Tomie de Paola
A tender look at the relationship of a young boy and his grandfather.

The Bears on Hemlock Mountain - Alice Dalgliesh
There are no bears on Hemlock Mountain - or are there? My husband's favorite that has become my sons' favorite, too.

Adult Books




I Will Carry You - Angie Smith
Angie chose to carry her baby, even though she knew it couldn't live after birth. This is the story of how God carried her through this time of grief.


On Writing Well - William Zinsser
A classic book on writing non-fiction. Excellent.

Turn Not Pale, Beloved Snail - Jacqueline Jackson
An older book for children on writing. Worth searching for to read even if you are an adult.





Tea and Trouble Brewing - Dorcas Smucker
Look for a review of this book tomorrow. Plus an opportunity to receive your own copy!

This post contains affiliate links. As always, I don't agree with everything written in all of these books.
