Bible Bible Bible.

It's just a bunch of verses from the Bible, with some kind of maudlin, Precious Moments-style illustrations.

Message

Be polite.

The Adventures of the Dish and the Spoon

October 3, 2016

Tries to be funny and fails.

It kind of seems like trying to capitalize on the popularity of “The Stinky Cheese Man,” but it really doesn't live up to that.

Message

Don't spend beyond your means. Or, don't rob banks. Not clear.

A bunch of jokes that aren't very funny.

I don't think kids would think of “trimming” as putting ribbons and stuff on something, like you trim a dress, I guess? Maybe it's just dated.

Message

Be specific. Or, if you make good pie, people will forgive anything else.

Who Will I Be, Lord?

October 16, 2016

Realistic yet enforces gender and class stereotypes.

Everybody's really lower class. Maybe that's good, because I guess there really isn't that much mixing of lower and upper class, so it's more realistic that way?

Message

You can be anyone you want to be.

No Haircut Today!

September 23, 2016

As the title says, nothing happens.

An ultra-short book which lives up to its title.

Message

Even when moms get mad at their kids, they still love them.
