While The Bombs Fell by Robbie Cheadle & Elsie Hancy Eaton — A Review

Standard

while the bombs fell

This is a small book, only in length, but please do not be misled by its relatively short size. It is a wonderful historical read, and it is full of interesting and captivating details of life during World War Two as seen through the eyes of a child.

Robbie Cheadle and Elsie Hancy Eaton do a marvelous job of pulling the reader into the child’s perspective, who finds wonder and joy, even in this terrible historical period. I loved reading about how the family survived with what they had and still managed to maintain the important aspects of life regardless of the hardships of the time.

The details are fascinating, and the added recipes are delightful. If you are interested in history or a captivating tale, then I recommend this book highly!

I was enthralled in the story from the very beginning through to the end. I have tended to read historical accounts as told through the perspective of adults, and this book, narrated by a very young child, is a refreshing approach.

I give this book a 5 star review, and I hope you buy a copy and read it!

On the pre-Christian Celtic calendar, October 31 was Samhain, pronounced Soo-when or Sow-when, and it marked the day when the world of the living and dead where at the closest. It is also the end of year, with November 1 as the start of the next year. This day is one of the most important Gaelic/Celtic/Pagan/Wiccan/Druidic holidays of the year!  And please do not worry about the devil–he is not a part of Samhain. There is nothing evil here.

Samhain/Halloween is a day to remember those who have passed and to think of the future.

This Halloween is special–we have both a full moon and a blue moon this year!

So, enjoy the day, dress up, have candy, party, and raise a toast and wish all a Happy New Year!

National Pretzel Day

April 26 is National Pretzel Day! This wonderful snack has a long and mysterious past with some claiming Italy and some Greece as the original place of their creation. No one is certain, but someone is to  be thanked for presenting the world with this tasty treat!

And as a Pennsylvanian, I want to point out that approximately 80 percent of all pretzels are made in Pennsylvania.

And I have to say that a heated soft pretzel with mustard is  a wonderful snack!

So, have a hard or soft pretzel and enjoy!
