The following books are picture books good for ages three through eight unless otherwise indicated. All these books are perfect to read out loud.

Two books that are a bit unusual are today’s choices for review. Time’s Dagger by Margot Hovley begins as a contemporary story, then makes a gigantic leap backward to the fourteenth century. The other book I chose to review is Brides and Brothers, a modern take-off of an old favorite, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.
Two authors, favorites of many, present new stories set more than a century apart and geographically on two different continents. Sarah M. Eden takes us to the slums of 1865 London with The Merchant and the Rogue, while Traci Hunter Abramson presents a modern-day Saints Squad novel, Redemption set in the USA.
August brings three books highlighting very different times and places. Journey to contemporary Canada, turn-of-the-century Austria, and 1800s Scotland. All three are outstanding books.
