Our family recently enjoyed checking out and making recipes from "Copycat Cooking." Many of the ingredients needed for the recipes are things you will have in your pantry, the recipes are easy to follow, and we liked that there is a color picture of every recipe. One of our favorite treats was Universal Studios Butterbeer! Pick out your favorite recipes and have some fun making popular restaurant meals and snacks at home!

When You Trap a Tiger is a whimsical and magical adventure. Lily feels nothing like a hero, quite the opposite in fact. Her sister calls her a QAG, quiet Asian girl, and she often feels invisible. That is, until she sees a giant tiger in the road, speaking just to her, as her family travels to move in with their sick halmoni. This tiger is reminiscent of Halmoni’s old Korean folktales, and the tiger is offering her a deal--to restore Halmoni’s health in exchange for something that Halmoni supposedly stole from the tiger.
Will Lily have the courage to face the tiger and complete the challenge in order to nurse Halmoni back to health?
This is a lovely and heartwarming story, with touches of magical realism, all about navigating change and facing the things that scare you the most. Recommended for Grades 4+

Empower the girls in your life with this positive and motivating message of ambition. The author said it perfectly, “In writing this book, my greatest hope is that girls dare to define their own unique purpose in the world, and they grow into strong, ambitious women.” Adding to this message is the inclusive illustrations where all girls will see themselves represented.
