Sofie Sunday ~ Harry Potter Magical Films Projector Book Review!

Happy Sunday, everyone! This time on this blog I will be reviewing these very magical, mystical, and wonderful books! These two books are Harry Potter Quidditch Magical Film Projections and Harry Potter Patronus Charm Magical Film Projections!

Another set of lovely and magical books made by J.K Rowling, these projectors are what HP fans will want! The two books are basically projectors that you can use to review the scenes of the Harry Potter Movie! Each book has a couple of pages with dark, shiny scenes from the Harry Potter Movies. One of them is the Patronus Charm projector, which shows outstanding life-like patronuses from the movies. The other is the Quidditch projector, which shows the lively scenes of the famous wizarding sport. Each page has a script of the scene, which you can read while looking at the shiny projection! You could even try to reenact the movie while reading the script.

How to use it:

You will need a dark room and a flashlight (can be your phone’s flashlight or a regular flashlight), and a blank wall. Facing directly at the wall, put the torch behind your desired scene and adjust it a bit so you can see the picture clearly.

Ta Da!

 

What do I like about this book?

Both of their covers are really beautiful and detailed, and I like the font of the titles! The way of using the projector is really clever and simple. The setup of the book is like a notebook. And flipping the pages is real easy, too!

J.K Rowling’s Wizarding World is amazing, from the characters to Hogwarts, to Diagon Alley and creatures, and more! J.K, keep making more wonderful stories!

Thank you for reading! Don’t forget to share and keep reading our blog. Have a happy Sunday, everyone!

Sofie Sunday ~ Book Review: Complete Guide to Needlework!

Hi, everyone! Today’s post will be a book review. It has been a while since I have done book reviews so I am going to do it again! The book I will be reviewing is called Reader’s Digest: Complete Guide to Needlework. This book is very amazing. It has everything about needlework— Embroidery, Needlepoint, Knitting, Appliqué, Quilting, Patchwork, Macramé, Crochet, Rug-making, and Lacework. That’s a lot!

 

This book is a good find if you are interested in any of the kinds of needlework. I want to learn how to do embroidery and knitting, so it is a great read for me! The crochet part is also good. There are many pictures to explain how to do needlework, making it easy to understand. It also explains types of yarns and threads, plus different kinds of needles too! It also tells about some supplies that you may need in needlework (like hoops and frames in embroidery, or types of scissors needed for cutting fabric, yarn, and threads) and explains why it is needed. While reading this thick information-filled book I saw many patterns and designs in the pictures. The book even tells you how to choose colors for your projects!

 

 

Reader’s Digest: Complete Guide to Needlework

 

To those learning how to do needlework, you must get this book! It has everything you need know on the many subjects, all inside this heavy book. The words and pictures will guide you as you sew, tie, cut, knit, and crochet. Even though old (published in 1979!), a good buy for those who wish to learn and create great creations!

Well, thanks for reading this post! Complete Guide to Needlework is great information-filled that is a good read for those who want to learn. More posts coming up next time! Have a happy Sunday, everyone!

Our Dear Sofie Sunday Levels Up – Guest Blogger in National Book Store Official Website

As of writing, whenever you ask my eldest child (Sofie Sunday) what she wants to be when she grows up, she will consistently answer that she wants to be an author. You know, kids, they often change their minds. And it’s okay since as they grow and expand their awareness, they discover more of their interests and talents. I remember when she was a toddler; she wanted to be a doctor, then a nurse. Eventually, she wanted to be a veterinarian (during the height of our stray kitten rescuing days).

When we became a homeschooling family, she had more exposure and time to enrich herself in books, not just school textbooks but the various genres, the world of literature can offer. I believe this has greatly influenced her desire to be a famous author one day.

So we delve into any activity and opportunity that can enhance her writing skills, hence allowing her to have her own Sofie Sunday segment here in momsweettezil.com.

And she has definitely taken up a notch this time. Yesterday, the official website of National Book Store had published her first ever guest blog post. Sofie is the first kid blogger to be featured in their blog site.

It just makes us feel ‘kilig’ (giddy) to be accepted and have her post be approved.  No monetary compensation, not a paid post but seeing her work and picture in the official website of the legendary bookstore in the Philippines was more than enough for us.

Wow, it was truly an early Christmas gift for her. And talking about Christmas gifts, read on and you might get some ideas on books (Sofie Sunday Approved!) that you can give to your kids or ‘inaanak’.

Again, thanks to National Book Store for this opportunity. One proud mama here.

Sofie Sunday: Book Review on Urgency Emergency! Choking Wolf by Dosh Archer

Hello, everyone! Today, I’m going to do this review about a book that I and my little brother love. I found it at the Big Bad Wolf sale while I was hunting for books. I suddenly saw it and took a peek inside it and I decided to bring it in my cart for deciding which books I would get. It was such a good thing to get, because my brother likes it a lot and wants me to read all over and over again. Here’s a picture of the book with the title:

Urgency Emergency! Choking Wolf

The story is about a wolf, who is choking because he swallowed someone. The doctor, Glenda, who is a dog, and the nurse, Percy, which is a chicken, must help the wolf remove the thing in there. The story ends happily, and it is funny too. If I could give it a rating, I would say five stars. I think it is a good and colorful book. I recommend it for 3 – 7+. Well, that’s the end of the review! I hope you enjoyed it! Bye!
