I've used Softsoap's liquid hand soaps and body washes several times. I like the fragrances and the way my skin gets clean.  I have a favorable impression of this brand and what it has to offer.  While using these Softsoap Body Washes, I am enveloped with nice scents. The flip-top lids are easy to open, and the body wash lathers up nicely. My family likes Softsoap because it doesn't irritate our skin and it gives our bodies a nice, clean feeling. Softsoap Body Wash has a fair price point and and can be found at mass retail, drug and grocery stores nationwide.

I believe in a God that hears prayers and answers them. I've witnessed the miraculous gift of answered prayer. And, I want to pray for you. I've started weekly Power of Prayer post every Thursday. We are now on week 144.  If you are needing prayer in an area of your life, please leave a comment and I'll commit to pray for your need or request. You can be as general or as specific as you like. Whether it be for healing, salvation, finances, emotions, or another area of life, I'd like to lift it up in prayer.

Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.

Voting with a Porpoise - Children's Book Review


Book Overview:

A pod of dolphins (and their porpoise friend, Petey) is in trouble. Their reef no longer provides the food they need to survive. The pod can't figure out what to do until Petey suggests they hold an election to decide. 

2018 Parent and Teacher Choice Award winner, Voting With a Porpoise is a fun, timeless, and beautifully illustrated story that teaches children how elections and voting have the power to solve hard problems.

The authors created this book to help change the culture around elections and voting. To that end, 100 percent of the profits for Voting With a Porpoise  will be donated to 501(c)(3) non-partisan voting-related causes focused on getting more people of all backgrounds to the polls, such as Rock the Vote, Vote.org, TurboVote, and others.

My Review:

Although I don't completely agree with how politics are played out, I do think it's very important for a person to vote.  If people want to make a difference or have their voice heard, they should exercise their right to vote.  Unfortunately, too many people aren't voting for one reason or another. 

Although a person can't legally vote until they hit the age of 18, there's no reason why a child shouldn't know about the importance of voting and the concept of a democracy.  Voting with a Porpoise is a fantastic book to introduce young readers to the notion of voting.  It does not choose sides or go into politics; It simply tells a story about voting.

Voting with a Porpoise is a book for young readers that's written in rhythmic form.  It tells of a pod of dolphins and their porpoise friend.  When fish leave the reef due to climate change, one of the dolphins declares what the whole pod should do.  Not happy with just one getting the ultimate decision, they decide to take a vote.  Petey the porpoise is told he can't vote because he's not "one of them".  After an incident where Petey saves the say, the dolphins come to the conclusion that Petey could vote.  His final decision ends up being the right choice.  It's a cute, simple story but sends a powerful message about voting and being kind to others who aren't just like you.

There's a section at the back of the book that explains the differences between dolphins and porpoises.  There's also "Conversation Starters and Lesson Ideas."  For instance, there's a prompt to talk to children about what happens if they are on the losing side of a vote.
