For Young Readers by Lindsey and Paige Oliver

In the world of young adult literature, few figures are so impressive as Avi. Though often passed over in favor of classic or more modern novels, his works, which include "The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle" and "The Man Who Was Poe," strike a balance which few, if any, writers have obtained. While engaging and thoroughly kid-friendly, stories penned by Avi often plumb the darkness of human nature, injecting mature themes so subtly and skillfully that they rarely seem out of place, even in a book for younger audiences. His are multi-faceted works-enjoyable and fun at most moments, but ...

Are you guilty of giving junk to the poor?

When Kristen Welch, blogger at We Are That Family, posted in October an essay called "Dear World: Let's Stop Giving Our Crap to the Poor" an avalanche of commentary followed. Ms. Welch's asserts that those blessed to live in rich countries should give their very best to support those less fortunate. Instead, we often use charity as an excuse to clean out all the broken, stained and unusable items in our house.

I could be wrong, but it seems a safe bet that neither Mike nor Frank got very excited as kids about Christmas or birthday parties, as both normally include gifts that are new rather than old.
