Ashley's War:  The Untold Story of a Team of Women Soldiers on the Special Ops Battlefield by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon is a non-fiction book published in April 2015.  The story follows several women and their quest to become the first women to be in combat along the Green Berets and Army Rangers. This is a book that was selected in my workplace for discussion between women and/or veterans.  The book discussion was broken into three parts much like how the story was broken up.  It garnered great conversations. Some of the things that happened in the book didn't surprise me, such as how physically demanding the tryouts were to be part of the special operations.  It's a demanding job that requires people to be not only physically strong but mentally strong.     What did shock me was that it took the military so long to allow women to fight along men on the battlefield.  Another thing that astonished me were how accepting most of the men in the Army Rangers were of the women fight

Book Review: The Get Along Gang and the Missing Caboose by James Razzi

book review the get along gang and the missing caboose james razzi

The Get Along Gang and the Missing Caboose by James Razzi is a children's picture book originally published on May 1, 1984 by Scholastic, Inc.  It's about a group of friends who have a caboose as a clubhouse, and it's missing!  Who took it, and will they be able to find it?

This was a popular book series and television series when I was growing up, and when someone mentioned online, I knew I had to read one of the books for nostalgic reasons.  The Get Along Gang and the Missing Caboose was well written, and the illustrations were phenomenal.  It certainly brought back fabulous childhood memories.  I love the fact that the lesson of the story is that you can accomplish anything, especially with teamwork.  I also loved that they stood up to the bully of the story.

Five out of five stars is what I gave The Get Along Gang and the Missing Caboose by James Razzi.  This is the perfect book for children three years old up to six years old.
