Then Sings my Soul Book 3 by Robert Morgan

Sing His Praises. This is what this book is all about. The book is divided into several categories which include Biblical, German, Medieval and Contemporary songs. Part 1 of the book gives you the history of Hymnody. Part 2 includes the hymn (with music), and a one page summary on the history of the hymn. Part 3 gives you the hymn(with music) and a hymn story of 6 well known hymns.
This book is great for music teachers, worship leaders, pastors,pianist, performer or any music enthusiast. I personally love it as a devotional. This is Book 3 of the series, but can definitely function by itself.

The Mouse in our House by Louise Watson

This short 29 page kids book about the antics of mouse in a families house is perfect for the kid who always brings some animal home to his parents and asks to keep it as a pet. The family in this house discovers the mouse and finds a way to make him a permanent part of the family. This is a nice reader style book for 1-3 grader. There is some rhyming text although not with every line. The illustrations are simple and cute. I love how the author described the characters in the beginning of the story as not sure to be excited or afraid of the sight of the mouse. I can relate to this, as a person with rodent phobia. But in the end the mouse finds a perfect home.
