My CD I have called, "LDS Hymns of Worship" (Various Artists) is my favorite CD I have and every one of my comps I've had (long-term or temporary) has loved it as well, and wants their own copy. I figured I would let you know so you could recommend it to people/missionaries/future missionaries. I really like it a lot, it's just arrangements of hymns by different artists, some instrumental, but they are all peaceful and uplifting pieces. In fact, when I first started driving and I was not "in charge" of the music, I would notice I really liked the song playing and would ask, "What CD is this?" and almost every time it would be LDS Hymns of Worship, but different tracks. Or the same track, because the song would catch my attention every time I heard it. It is really just a good CD.

Fablehaven 5, Keys to the Demon Prison is the last volume in the best-selling children's fantasy series by Brandon Mull. Like most excellent children's fantasy, there's lots of pretty interesting things going on inside a fast-moving adventure story. I'm thinking I need to get more members of my family reading this series so we can have some energetic discussions about the interesting themes and thought-provoking conflicts that develop throughout the series. Some of these include courage versus caution, a pure heart versus greed and power, light versus dark, consequences and responsibility, loyalty and betrayal plus much more.
I had waited to read volume 4 (Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary) until the last volume came out. Since it had been a while, I ended up reviewing/rereading volumes 1 through 3 and then reading 4 and 5. It took a day or two for me to process the climax and resolution of the series and come back out of the Fablehaven universe into the real world. Not everyone I know who started reading the first book was able to really get into the story, but it sure pulled me in. I look forward to reading these again and finding ideas, patterns and details I missed the first time. For more information about what the series is about, you can check on our website for a description of the books. If you enjoy fantasy, I can highly recommend this series for you and your children.
Product note: Volume 1-4 are now available in paperback as well as hardback.
