What People are Saying:

“I read this book in one sitting as I just couldn't put it down. The story line was original, intriguing and made you feel like you were part of the action. As well as this there were many twists and turns that kept me hooked and the book was really well written with a solid plot. The book didn't reveal everything straight away which was great as it left in suspense right up until the end.” ~Lucy M 5/5 

“ I found that it's surprisingly original concept was quite common in real life but not so much in books. I found it a delightful read that I will look forward to reading in the future. And the new cover! Marvelous.” ~ Kathy H 5/5 

“All I can say is WOW! This book was amazing and different. I love the twist and detail she used I was instantly pulled in and felt like I was there with the characters.” ~Brianna 5/5

The Kissing Hand (Un Beso en Mi Mano)

The Kissing Hand  Un Beso en Mi Mano (The Kissing Hand)


*I received a copy of this title from NetGalley. NetGalley is a wonderful company that invites reviewers to request a wide variety of books.

Honest reviews are requested, be they good or bad.  You can learn more about NetGalley at https://www.netgalley.com/. In accordance with this and the policy of Alaskan Book Cafe no compensation for this review. All opinions are the honest thoughts of Alaskan Book Cafe.*


In The Kissing Hand we are introduced to Chester Raccoon. Chester is going off to school but, as this is a new  experience, he is scared. He tells his mother he does not want to go and she tells him of The Kissing Hand. 

I read this book and it's follow up, A Pocketful of Kisses, with Junior. It quickly became a favorite read. He also wanted a kissing hand. Once I filled his hand with kisses, he insisted on filling mine. When he came home from school he would tell me if he was low on kisses.  This was a highlight for me. Touch does not come easy to Junior. Neither do great shows of affection. It is just part of his autism.  That he wanted kisses on his palm thrilled me. That he wanted to give them - well I don't have words to fully express my joy. All from this wonderful story of a mother's love. We continue to read this book together. It is one of his frequent request.  The story is absolutely delightful. The pictures are rich and filled with the love between Chester and his mother. I highly recommend this book. 

Junior: I love this story. It told me about the kissing hand. Now I don't have to miss my grandma so much. I have kisses in my hand. I really like the pictures. I like the raccoon. It wears a mask like a bandit. I thought it was because it will steal your food. But I read about them and maybe it is to help them see. Did you know a raccoon can run so fast at 15 miles per hour? Did you know they like to go in water? They examine things they find in the water. Their hands have fingers. That is what makes it so good at stealing food. Like the book says they stay up at night time. I wonder if Chester closes his hand to keep the kisses in? I do at first but when they are stuck I open my hand. 

En Beso en Mi Mano se nos presenta a Chester Raccoon. Chester va a la escuela, pero, como se trata de una nueva experiencia, él tiene miedo. Le dice a su madre que no quiere ir y ella le dice que de beso en mi mano.

He leído este libro y su seguimiento, A Pocketful of Kisses, con Junior. Rápidamente se convirtió en una lectura favorita. También quiso besar la mano. Una vez que llenó su mano de besos, insistió en llenar la mía. Cuando llegó a casa de la escuela me decía si estaba bajo en besos. Este fue un momento culminante para mí. Contacto no es fácil para Junior. Tampoco los grandes muestras de afecto. Es sólo una parte de su autismo. Que quería un beso en la palma me emociona. Que él quería darles - así que no tengo palabras para expresar mi alegría por completo. Todo lo de esta maravillosa historia de amor de una madre. Seguimos leyendo este libro. Es uno de su petición frecuente. La historia es absolutamente encantador. Las imágenes son ricos y llenos del amor entre Chester y su madre. Yo recomiendo este libro.


Junior: Me encanta esta historia. Me habló de la mano besándose. Ahora no tiene que perder mi abuela tanto. Tengo besos en la mano. Me gustan mucho los cuadros. Me gusta el mapache. Lleva una máscara como un bandido. Pensé que era porque va a robar su comida. Pero he leído acerca de ellos y tal vez es ayudarles a ver. ¿Sabías que un mapache puede correr tan rápido de 15 millas por hora? ¿Sabía usted que les gusta ir en el agua? Examinan las cosas que encuentran en el agua. Sus manos tienen los dedos. Eso es lo que hace que sea tan bueno en robar comida. Al igual que el libro dice que se quedan hasta por la noche. Me pregunto si Chester cierra su mano para evitar los besos en? Yo al principio, pero cuando están atrapados abro mi mano.

Review: Can't and Able Children's Book


Daniel Stevens, Illustrator

* I received a copy of this book from the author for review. No compensation was given. The opinions in this review are mine, Junior's and a few other children. * 

When I opened the envelope containing this children's book the first thing that caught my eye was this beautiful cover. The illustrations in this book are amazing. Mr Stevens did a wonderful job. The children who shared this book with me loved them. The most popular illustration was the final one.  The book was shared with children 5 -8 in age. Some had special needs and you all know Junior is on the spectrum. 

The book opens with a poem written by David Higgins. At the bottom it stated he wrote the poem in 6th grade. This was copied by an 8 year old to hang on her wall. It is a wonderful poem that describes the spirit of this book. Here it is.

Little Star
David Higgins
from the book Can't and Able by Cynthia Fabian

Shine bright little star
Never forget what you are
Have hopes that are high
You will stay in the sky
Go your path, find your way
Look straight forward, you wish, you may
Little star, life is long
Your glow will last, your will is strong
So shine bright little star, shine your light
Shine little star, for all in sight.

This is a story about a little star Can't who has a disability and  Able an old star who shines brightly. Can't is young, small and unable to shine bright. Able laughs at him and all the other stars join in. This bullying hurts Can't who goes off by himself. Later Able is injured and can't steps in for him. Can't turns into Can and even defends Able when Able gets bullied. 

This is a delightful non religious inspirational story. It held the children's attention. When it was read in a group, a few times some children interrupted to talk about it. I know when a book is a hit when it engages them. I also knew they were relating to it by the, "one time that happened to me."  
                                                         
Junior: I like this book. Stars were mean to Can't but he turned into Can. I like that Can didn't laugh at Able. Lots of kids need to read this book so they know they can do whatever. Little kids who can't read yet will like the pictures. 

A few of the children, (I do not have permission to give their details): 

Boy 6 : I was laughed at and I was sad. It is hard to be nice when kids won't play with you. Maybe my teacher can read this to us.

Girl 8 : I like this poem so much. I am going to put it on my wall so I can read it before school every day. It tells me to keep my hopes up and not to let anything stop me. This book is important. Lots of kids get made fun of. It really hurts when people laugh at you. 

Boy 8: I was the bad star. But I won't be anymore. I didn't think it hurt. I was just laughing. 

Cynthia Fabian was a teacher, is an inspirational speaker and author. She states she grew up with a disorder. When she became a teacher she saw many children were struggling as she did with teasing and hurt feelings. She wrote this book so that children would learn to believe in themselves and be able to change their circumstances.  It is my opinion that she is on target with this book. It was entertaining and educational as well as inspirational. She gives presentations on various topics foe adults, teens and children as well as presentations on Epilepsy. She has also written the following books:

Orchestra in Our Brain: The Story of a Child with Epilepsy  Second Hand Art Those Sweet Nothings 

Daniel Stevens also illustrated the book Second Hand Art.

Review of John T Edge The Truck Food Cookbook


The Truck Food Cookbook
150 Recipes and Ramblings from America's Best Restaurants on Wheels

John T. Edge

* I received a copy of this title from NetGalley for review purposes. I received no compensation for this review. All opinions are my honest thoughts and feelings.*

I come from Chicago. I bought hot dogs from a cart down the street. People would line up as soon as it parked. Puerto Rican food from a truck in Humbodlt Park. Mexican food, well all over the place. Tamales in the morning and elotes, sandia con chili y limon, mangos, fruit cups during the day ending with, to die for, tacos. All purchased from food carts and trucks. I love these foods. So when I saw this book I knew I had to check it out. In my review when I say a recipe is from a food truck what I am referring to is that food truck is where the food is served. The actual recipe may or may not be from that food truck.

The book opens with a little bit of the author's history with truck food. It was interesting to read his experiences with food trucks, which included his own adventure as a food cart owner/operator. He then goes into the various places in the Untied States he visited. We have photographs of the food, trucks and people and we have recipes. If you have not visited a food truck I think you are going to be pleasantly surprised at what is served. Since I cannot afford to go on a food truck vacation across America, (a dream I now have thanks to this book), I am ecstatic at having  the recipes available.  

Our first adventure is with fries which begins in Portland. My mouth was watering at the photo of the fries. I am not the biggest french fry lover. Actually I am a french fry snob. They have to be perfect fries for me. So the first recipe of the book was the first recipe I tried, all the way down to the Tarragon and Anchovy Mayonnaise. It was out of the world. They also have  a recipe called Portland Poutine. Talk about awesomesauce! These potatoes are to die for.  If you are in Portland I would suggest finding the food truck, Potato Champion. I want to visit Portland just to find this truck. John has thoughtfully provided a map of downtown Portland which shows the locations of the food trucks as of the writing of the book. The author goes on to various other places including California and Washington for more fries. The fries are not always made with the standard white potato either. There are recipes for sweet potatoes, yucca and chickpeas. Oh the variety! Then he hits Texas, Wisconsin, California and Oregon for a variety of fried pies. The recipes are truly awesome. For those going, 'oh no fried food!', I am guessing you can bake some of these. In my opinion not as wonderful as the fried but I believe you can make it work if you want to experiment. 

What's that? You are wondering if you can find a good waffle? Take a gander at chapter 2.  No I am definitely not a health foodie. I enjoy healthy eating but junk food has its place...in my heart and stomach. Good eats are to be enjoyably eaten. This stop at Parker's Waffles and Coffee almost made me faint. Sausage Gravy and Waffles. Holy mackeral Batman! Now you know I am from Chicago but my family has lived in Kentucky since the 1700's. Sausage gravy - uh nothing better. On a waffle? You have won my heart. Just when you think it can get no better, the author takes us to Austin Texas to Lucky J's where we can get waffle tacos and Croque Monsieur which is chicken, swiss cheese and ham on a waffle. If any of you Texans are wondering yes, there is a map of downtown Austin locations. There are also recipes from places in New York, Pennsylvania and California.

Chapter 3 brings us Brunch which we have in Oregon, (where most of the recipes seem to come from), Pennsylvania, Washington and Texas. The map here is of downtown Seattle. Here we find recipes such as Nopalitos and Egg Tacos from El Camion in Seattle, (nopalitos is prickly pear cactus - this recipe is delicious. I highly recommend it), and an egg, cheese, broccoli rabe sandwich from Mickey D's Grill In Philadelphia. 

Unexpected Pleasures are to be found in Chapter 4. Here I found recipes for food you really do not associate with food trucks at all. My favorite recipes came from Santa Rosa Tacos de Barbacoa in Austin Texas. I made the Barbacoa de Borrego and the Consume de Borrego. It was a treat for me. I have not had Barbacoa since I moved to Alaska. Another unique recipe was for Spam Musubi from Marination Mobile in Seattle. I have Spam. I never thought of making it this way. Yum! Greens With Turkey Necks was a nice surprise. I never dreamed that is served off a food truck but Asian Soul Kitchen in Los Angeles serves it up. In this chapter we find a map of food trucks in New York and Madison Wisconsin. 

Sandwiches are Chapter 5's delight. Food truck locations are Philadelphia and San Francisco. I made the Cheese steak Sandwich from Mickey D's Grill in Philadelphia. Omgosh the goodness of this! The Cubano Sandwich from  The Texas Cuban in Austin was amazing.I don't think yoou have lived until you have eaten a Sloppy Jerk Pork Sandwich, (recipe from The Jamerica Restaurant in Madison Wisconsin). 

Chapter 6 gives us what we expect from a food truck - hot dogs. Now I know a lot of people consider hot dogs to be the food of choice only if you are a kid or you have run out of places to go eat. But I love hot dogs. Maybe it was all the hot dogs my mom bought us from the cart when we went shopping. Or the baseball hot dogs,. I don't know but a good hot dog for me is comfort food at its finest. I admit I am also a hot dog snob. It was difficult for me to try the hot dogs in this section. Not because the recipes were difficult, (in truth you will be amazed at the ease of the majority of recipes in this book), but because in Chicago we do dogs a certain way and that is it. So once I worked up my mind to accept trying them out I discovered the guys over at Dogtown dogs in Venice California have a dog I really like. And they include a recipe for crispy fried onions to top it with. You know crispy fried onions - they come in a plastic container and you top the holiday green bean casserole with them. These are easy to make and so much better. I will be making them instead of buying now. In Minneapolis there is a food truck that makes breakfast dogs. Yes I said breakfast. But what is even more awesome than the dogs is the food truck itself. I am talking about The Magic Bus Cafe. Holy hot dogs! There is a fantastic photo of the inside of this bus you have to see. There is also a photo of the owners, sisters Cathy Lockyear and Chrissy Russell, dressed as hot dogs. Hysterical. I am betting this is a fun place to eat. I really want to go there. Another hot dog recipe that was awesome is Sonoran Hot Dog from El Guero Canelo in Tucson. A bit messy but total awesomesauce. This chapter also has recipes for that other staple ...Burgers. The Grilled Cheese Cheeseburger is a bit labor intensive but if you don't live in Portland and can't get to Brunch Box than it is worth the trouble to make it at home. Another recipe that takes a bit of cooking but is so worth it is the Morning Burger from Only Burger in Durham N.C. If you like fried green tomatoes this is your burger. I happen to love them and was delighted to see the recipe for them included. Food Truck locations are Tucson Arizona and Durham North Carolina

Tacos have been a food truck staple in Chicago for a number of years. There is a place in Chicago on the north side that has tacos so wonderful people are always standing around eating. I miss that food cart. Chapter 7 is the taco chapter. Yay! I am going to just suggest you make every recipe in this section. I did. To note though, there are recipes for avocado crema and chipotle sauce as well salsas you will definitely want to make. I enjoyed the crema and chipotle sauce on hamburgers as well as the tacos. You will also find the recipe for making those carrots and jalapenos you find in every Mexican restaurant.  Food Truck locations are Houston Texas and Los Angeles.

Chapter 8 brings me a surprise. I had no idea that there are sweet food trucks! Now that's what I'm talking about. Cupcakes on wheels. Woohoo! I love the Velvet Balls recipe from Holy Cacao in Austin Texas. I would be buying these daily if I lived there. There are also recipes for cookies, s'mores, donuts, ice cream, fried pie pastry and Shaker Lemon Pie. Oh the goodness! Food truck location is Minneapolis Minnesota.

At the end of the book is a recounting of the authors adventure in selling hot dogs in New Orleans. That was some funny reading. Make sure you read that. You will not only laugh but you will come away with a deeper appreciation of food truck vendors. That is a rough job. I think i will stick to being a customer. 

I enjoyed this book tremendously. The recipes are easy to follow and well written. None of the ones I made were hard for me to make. The ingredients were fairly easy for me to get and I am in  small town Alaska where everything comes in by barge or plane. Trust me we do not have every food ingredient out there and some that we do get the price is so high we need to promise our first born to afford them. That I could find and afford all the ingredients for the recipes I chose to make was a bonus for me. There is much more included in the book. The author has included bits from various food trucks, recounted his adventures travelling around, (he was held hostage and nearly arrested at one place- how much fun can you have?) and photos. The photos are phenomenal. Most were taken by Angie Mosier. Angie also secured most of the recipes or came up with her own that matched the recipe.  I really hope you will purchase this book. It really is a lot of fun to read and has great recipes. Just looking at the photos you will be drooling.

My Resonse to 10 Things You Should Know About Autism

I read  10 Things You Should Know About Autism on Rob Gorski's blog Lost and Tired.  Rob is the father of 3, yes 3, wonderful boys who are all on the autism spectrum. If you have never been to his blog I urge you to check it out. It is a blog for everyone: those who love a person on the spectrum, those who know someone on the spectrum, those who don't know anyone on the spectrum and may not even know what the spectrum is. Quite possibly his blog is especially important for the last group. Those of us loving someone on the spectrum have their own stories. We know what autism is, up close and personal. Blogs like his give us information when we need it, friendships, and most of all acceptance; the understanding of our need to laugh, cry or shout at the top of our lungs, (often all in the same day). People who are not lucky, yes I said lucky, enough to love someone on the spectrum need knowledge so they can understand. Let me stop a moment to explain why I said lucky as I know some people are going to be going, "Lucky? Is she out of her freaking mind? How dare she say someone is lucky to raise a child, (or love a person), on the spectrum! Does she not know how hard this is?" Yes, I know how hard it is. I know the heartbreak. Mostly though I know the love. The honest and pure love that comes from that person. When Junior first told me I could give him a hug if "it was fast and really hard, all over", you can only know my overwhelming joy if you know autism. It was a moment when I knew I was lucky. When we read The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn and he insisted on loading my palm with kisses and me loading his before he left the house, (or he positively would not go), I knew I was lucky. These moments and others like them,  from a child who truly does not like to be touched because "it feels funny," let me know I am lucky. I raised other children, including his mother. I hugged and kissed them, (and yes felt lucky with them too), but these hard won signs of love will forever remain my luckiest moments. When we were on the bus coming home from the store, Junior loudly proclaimed, " that lady smells." He then looked through the bags until he found what he wanted. I am certain the well groomed, expensive perfume wearing tourist did not understand the significance in Junior handing her a bar of soap but I did. Through the embarrassment, (and admittedly choking on laughter), I praised his reaching out to help someone. Oh yes, I am lucky. I am lucky to love a child who works harder than you can imagine to do things that come so easy to others. Lucky to know someone who has no filters and teaches me much about honesty, an honesty that permits him to show care to strangers in his special ways. I am lucky because I know now exactly how to see and appreciate the uniqueness of each of us. This child on the spectrum teaches me a new way to see the world. He teaches me love, acceptance, humor, and joy in things I took for granted. He has a unique look at the world and everything in it and I am lucky. This unique vision of things every person on the spectrum has and yes you are lucky when you share it with them. Note I never said the path was easy or painless. Some days seem endless. I just try to refuse to let them overshadow the good times. Here are the Rob's 10 Things with comments:

1) Autism is not like you see on TV. Don’t think you know about Autism because you’ve seen Rain Man.
    I laughed when I read that. It took me back to the day I first heard autism. Junior had spent hours every day for days         with the doctor. It was a fight getting him there. It was a fight getting him to leave. It was nights where he was still wound up and could not settle down making the days last 18 hours. Junior was busy, quickly buzzing around grabbing things in  the neat office with the toys all nicely placed. By the time we left only the shelves he could not reach still had toys neatly placed. The rest were grouped together in little areas all over the room. Each toy carefully selected and placed with others in an odd assortment that made sense to Junior. They were not played with, just placed. It would take navigation to leave the office. I was sitting in a chair blocking the door, the doctor sitting in one blocking his desk. He said, " we have tested him and observed him carefully. We all are certain your grandson has autism." Immediately my thoughts swung to the only thing I had ever known of autism.  Rain Man. Oh my God, no! Please, no! But all I said was, "what is the most important skill for him to have? " 

2) Every person with Autism, is as unique and beautiful as a winters snowflake. Different symptoms, personalities, likes, dislikes, hopes, fears, dreams, strengths and weaknesses. Please don’t generalize them.
      I learned this when I met my friend Robin. She has a limited verbal child on the spectrum. Until meeting her, I did not know anyone else with an autistic child. Her beautiful daughter is different from Junior though they both share some of the same difficulties. Robin and I are also different yet share some of the same things. As time went on I met more parents and children. What I learned is they are all unique PEOPLE. 

3)The Autistic children of today are the Autistic adults of tomorrow. Autism doesn’t go away on their 18th birthday.
     I think we tend to think of them as children because parents have been so vocal in the past few years. We are fighting for our children so we must be loud and pushy. This statement is perhaps the one we need to push. 


4) An Autism related meltdown is most often a sign that the person is in extreme distress and is not necessarily a discipline issue or a sign of bad parenting.
     YES. YES. YES. Please do not stare or make unkind remarks. Most likely neither of us is blind or deaf. 


5) Never assume that just because a person with Autism can’t talk, they can’t hear you.  Your words can and will hurt, so please be kind.
       See #4

6) Not every person with Autism is a savant. This is a stereotype and in fact, quite rare.
      Please stop asking what his special talent is. He is not an act in the circus. Though I suppose if he chooses it, he can be one day. 

7) People with Autism are very, very intelligent. If they have a problem learning, perhaps it’s the way you’re teaching.
      He sees the world in his own way. Maybe think outside the box and try to see what he sees. If you take the time, he will help you.

8) A leading cause of death in children with Autism is drowning. Please be aware of this, especially if you live near a body of water, of any size.
    Water is a magnet for Junior. Which I thought was funny since he hated the shower. Then I learned he could not handle the feeling of the water hitting his skin. He also could not handle the sound of the water running or the bathroom fan. But the ocean - magnet. The water out by the glacier - it had chunks of ice so it was cold, he walked in it until his grandpa grabbed him and carried him out. The water was to his his waist. That was when we learned the danger of water. 

9) Simply because a person with Autism can have difficulty showing emotion, doesn’t mean they don’t experience it.
       Proof of this you read above.


10) Every families experience with Autism, can and will, quite often be different. Some experience struggle and others, not so much. Never assume that one families experience with Autism, mirrors that of another families.
        Absolutely true.

If you are not lucky enough to have someone on the spectrum in your life, during this month of autism awareness, I urge you to do more than just be aware of autism. I urge you to learn more about it, (during April there is always a bunch of information readily available). And I cannot urge you enough to accept people who are on the spectrum. They are unique individuals who will enrich your life if you let them.  

There are photos of Junior under the tab One Face of Autism.
