    One thought on “Something to Sing About”

    1. I liked this one. There wasn't a lot of action, but I thought the basic plot was intriguing and demonstrated a lot of grace. The main chacter's debilitating fear of bees could have been solved with one trip to the allergist, but it worked for the story and kids will like the subplot in which the main chacter gets a dog who just happens to like to eat bees. The most intriguing part of all is the true story on which this one is based - the story of a small church that explodes with no one in it, b [...]

    2. I know - this is a "Young Adults" Book. But it is on the United Methodist Women's Reading Program list and looked like an easy read. It was a wonderful read! Jamie Jo at 10years old is afraid to go outside because she is deathly afraid of bees. She also has problems with other decisions and is totally dependent on her Mother who carries a flyswatter wherever she and Jamie Jo go together. The gist of the book is that things happen for a reason, whether you see it at the time or later. Read it!

    3. This was a fast, simple book, but I really liked it. I liked how the author worked in other things aside from the characters to help tell the story. The way they described things in the book was also very beautiful. As the main character starts overcoming her fear of bees lots of other things start getting better for her too.

    4. I had read this book before and had meant to come back to it, but I didn't get around to it until recently. To be honest, it was a little to juvenile for me. But even when I am old and married with grandkids I will still probably give this book 5 stars. It's just so funny/good/heart-warming and touching.

    5. This is a quick, simple, gentle book. The most important event of the book is based on a extraordinary true event. I think the main idea of the book is that we can change -anyonecan change. It is a faith-based book, but I wouldn't say it needed to fit in a "Christian books" section. It should have appeal to churchgoers and non-churchgoers alike.

    6. Really wants to start reading this book! My teacher's cousin wrote this book. It even has my teacher her oldest daughter in it.

    7. Jamie Jo is terrified of bees. What will she do to cross the street to meet a new friend, there are bees out there!

    8. Jaime Jo grows out of her many fears--fear of bees and bee stings, fear of going outside by herself, and her new neighbor across the street becomes her best friend.

    9. What a crack upI love Jamie Jo and her family. I caught myself smiling and then laughing through-out this book.

    10. Jamie Jo has a lot to learn about bravery and churchd bees. I really enjoyed this book. It's a very quick read, but it's message is very powerful.

    11. The book begins a bit slow but as you continue to read it picks up. Some real truths about human relationships are well said and dealt with as a good Christian example.

    12. See? I could finish thin books :pJamie Jo tinggal bersama kedua orang tua dan seorang kakak laki-laki di sebuah kota kecil dimana semua hal bisa dicapai dengan berjalan kaki. Apalagi kalau ayahnya punya prinsip: kalau mobil sudah diparkir, maka mobil itu akan tetap di parkiran hingga senin pagi ketika ayahnya berangkat ke kantor. Maka, Jamie Jo dan ibunya harus bergegas ke gereja kalau mereka tidak mau telat. Dan sesungguhnya mereka tidak pernah terlambat, karena mereka selalu datang paling awal [...]

    13. I like the story because they have good friendship. Jamie Jo's scared of bees because she thought if she got Stone she might die. The story tells good Christian life to.The story has all kinds of stuff it has ChristianityFriendship familyand more's good because you should read

    14. This book is told from the perspective of a ten year old girl who grows up with a mother who never misses church. This book is an easy read, but I really wasn't crazy about it; however, I would use it in my classroom to talk about the facts presented in the book such as the church explosion.
