Your Life Without Limits

Your Life Without Limits: Living Above Your Circumstances
Nick Vujicic

A short summary of Nick Vujicic's book "Life Without Limits", this is a very short inspirational piece designed to encourage and motivate readers to have hope, persevere, and set high goals for their lives no matter their circumstance.

Having previously read Nick's book, I expected this to be a follow up and was excited to read more from this energetic and inspiring author. I was quite disappointed to find it only an extended summary or maybe a supplement to the book "Life Without Limits" with a little added to act as a stand alone piece or a tidbit to whet the appetite of the reader and introduce them to the story while leaving them wanting more. I am not sure about the true purpose of this short piece.

That said, I have read and reviewed on this site the full book and was thrilled to have had the chance to read it. With bits of encouragement and motivation sprinkled through Nick's life story, it was truly inspirational and worth reading multiple times. You can read my review of Life Without Limits here.

I was provided a digital copy of this book through the Waterbrook Multnomah Blogging for Books program.  I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated for my review.  All thoughts are my own.

Find it at Barnes and Noble

Ricky the Remarkable Raccoon

Ricky the Remarkable Raccoon
By Orggy Roger- Carey. Illustrated by David Miles

Ricky is a raccoon who yearns for a place to belong and people to want him.  Through mishap, he ends up where he thought he wanted to be, but not where he was wanted.  A turn of events finds Ricky with a new unexpected life and family just waiting for him.

A book intended for elementary aged children, this book touches on feelings surrounding Adoption without ever mentioning the word, which makes it a nice book for all children. Characters are mainly animals, taking away the human coldness and making it more inviting and relatable for young children.  As children follow Ricky through the book, they find him going from alone to loved by a family very different than he would have chosen, yet perfect for him.

Our family does not at this time include adopted children, but if it did, this would be a book I would want around to help ease into the topic.  It was well presented, with easy to understand words and inviting pictures.  Readers identify with Ricky's loneliness and cheer for him as he finds a family to love.  A solid book for all families, especially those with adopted members.  After all, we are all adopted by Christ, so we can all relate in some way!

Disclosure of Material: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookCrash.combook review program, which requires an honest, though not necessarily positive, review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
