New Review on Brain Burps: Another Brother
Here’s what I love about social media: Darshana Khiani from Flowering Minds is my Goodreads friend, and she sent me a message saying she thought I’d like this book. (Side note: check out the recent interview with Darshana on my fellow Brain Burps contributor Julie Hedlund’s site.) So I love that we are all trying to be our real selves online, so much so that someone I’ve never met or even exchanged emails with can tell when there’s a book I’d like.*
Or, more true: a book I’d LOVE. Oh boy is this a great book. Yet another one that had my kids screaming with laughter, and definitely one I was happy to read again and again, because it’s so funny and the illustrations are so darn cute I want to curl up and take a nap with them.
*Do I love that we put our real selves online, or do I find it creepy? A little of both, honestly. And I realize that there are many, many people who are not putting their real selves online, but who are making up whole alternate personae, but whatever, those aren’t who I’m talking about. Or maybe they are, if I could accurately recommend a book to someone’s alternate persona.
