 Naturally Cracked reviews Maker Lab 

 "The book of all books in my eyes. I loved that it had various projects ranked easy, medium, or hard with an estimated time frame for completion ... (this book) will help kids find their inner inventor and create winning projects for school projects, science fairs, and beyond. I cant wait to see what my little inventor does over the Christmas break!" 

​Heartless Girl reviews Where to Go When​

"I can’t stress how awesome this book is. It breaks down each month and recommends the best places to travel...It’s the perfect book to curl up with a cup of tea and daydream with, or to plan your next excursion. It would also be an amazing gift for your family and friends..." 

Working Mommy Journal reviews Utterly Amazing Dinosaur

"...full of pop ups and flaps that your child can explore... dinosaur facts were age appropriate but still gave enough information to keep us adults interested .. the illustrations are bright and bold that helps to draws you into the story. This book will definitely be a hit among the Dinosaur fans in your home."

BiffBamPop! Reviews Monster High Character Encyclopedia

"It’s clever and concise...an exhaustive and informative look at all the various Monster High characters and their incarnations. Lavishly illustrated and detailed, I can’t imagine fans finding a better guide to the (Monster High) world."

Ottawa Mommy Club reviews Chocolate

"... takes readers on the chocolate trail from cocoa bean to irresistible morsel ...I learned a lot more about the production of cocoa, how to evaluate the quality of various chocolates and how to make it in so many different ways. The 300+ photos from cover to cover are gorgeous, making you crave for a bit of this treat as your eyes devour each of the pages."
