Book Review: There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner

There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner is a children's book where kids look to make sure there are no dragons in the book.  The expected publication date is March 5, 2024.  I'd like to thank NetGalley for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of this book. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed in this picture book.  I didn't care for the story, and it's not something I would likely read to a child.  I also didn't like that the story actually did have dragons in it only because I feel like a child might be upset that they were mislead.  However, I'm not the target audience, so kids may love it. On a positive note, I did enjoy the colorful illustrations.  It definitely gives the reader a lot to look at.  Three out of five stars is what I gave There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner.

Book Review: The Nazi Conspiracy, The Secret Plot to Kill Roosevelt, Stalin, and Churchill by Brad Meltzer and Josh Mensch

Book Review:  The Nazi Conspiracy, The Secret Plot to Kill Roosevelt, Stalin, and Churchill by Brad Meltzer and Josh Mensch

The Nazi Conspiracy: The Secret Plot to Kill Roosevelt, Stalin, and Churchill by Brad Meltzer and Josh Mensch is about the first ever meeting between Franklin D. Roosevelt, Joseph Stalin, and Winston Churchill in Iran.  When the Nazis find out about it, they create a secret plan to assassinate the Big Three.  The expected publication date of this book is January 10, 2023.

I'd like to thank NetGalley and Flatiron Books for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of The Nazi Conspiracy.  I never learned about this secret plot in school, and I wanted to learn more about it.  When I learned that I had been approved to receive a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review, I was thrilled.

This non-fiction book was an informative read as well as mostly interesting.  There was a slow stretch in the book where approximately fifty of the pages read like a text book, but overall, it was a learning experience.  There is so much that was never taught in my history classes, and I was surprised at what I didn't know.  

With technology being so advanced now, it's hard to imagine the trials and tribulations of trying to run a government when you're out of the country during the 1940's.  It's something I never gave much thought to before now.  Not to mention how entailed the process of protecting the President and all the hoops the Secret Service had to jump through to organize the travel for Roosevelt.  It was also interesting to learn that there were two men from Nazi Germany that were undercover in Iran and had an underground network of sympathizers and that some of them turned on the undercover agents.  World War II was such a horrible time in history, and I hope people continue to learn from it.

Four out of five stars is what I gave The Nazi Conspiracy: The Secret Plot to Kill Roosevelt, Stalin, and Churchill by Brad Meltzer and Josh Mensch.  This should be required reading for high school students.
