#BookReview: Caleb's Crop by Evelyn Rainey

Synopsis: Giles thinks his big brother Caleb can do anything. He knows how to say just the right things to make their mother smile. He knows how to milk cows and build chicken coops. Most importantly, Caleb knows how to read, and taught Giles how to read, too. Now Giles and Caleb have immigrated with their mother to a farming planet where no one else knows how to read!


Rating: 4 Stars
My Review: I liked this science fiction book about learning to read. I was a little confused sometimes reading but I think for the most part it all worked out for me.  I liked the artwork especially the part at the end where it shows the crops growing over time.  That was really cool.  I wish that this would have given us artwork on what the world looked like from space.  

Knowing how to read is so important because you cant do much without it. If you are driving you can't read signs and you cant read books which I would not want to give up.  I hope that those who read this one learn how important reading is!! 


When I was a little girl, my father used to read books out loud to us. If there was a part of the book he didn't like, he used to make it up and change things. I loved that!! The idea that one can create whole worlds and universes and conflicts and resolutions was empowering. 

I write with the question "What if..." always on my mind. Genres fascinate me; I write science fiction, fantasy, new age urban fantasy, historical fiction, devotionals, romance, mystery, psychological thrillers, and weekly articles for my science fiction/fantasy book column on BellaOnline. I love writing battle scenes. I have fun writing love scenes. Research is everything!

Yes, my books have a great number of characters - and some of them are just flat out crazy. Crazy is fun, though, right? I do write what I know.

I really enjoy getting to know the people who read my books. Stop by and talk to me if you see me at a convention, a conference, a workshop, or a writers group -- or better yet - invite me to come speak at YOURS!  

May you always have a pen and a piece of paper...
