Thank you @simon.audio for the #giftedbook. 

Stuntboy, in the Meantime is truly a gift for kids.  It’s funny. It’s full of imagination. It’s full of heart. It’s full of friendship. And it’s full of love.

Portico Reeves is the best superhero you’ve never heard of. Stuntboy is Portico’s superhero alter ego and his mission is to keep other superheroes safe- like his mom and dad, his best friend, and the people who live in his apartment building. But even superheroes have secrets sometimes. Portico’s secret is his anxiety or the “frets” as he calls it. His parents keep fighting all the time. Can Stuntboy tame his frets and save his mom and dad? 

This audiobook was a joy to listen to! Author @jasonreynolds83 really tapped into his inner middle school boy for this one. The book is filled with kid humor, silliness, and imagination. It’s also filled with the that peculiar kid logic and wonder as Portico tries to make sense of the world around him and his changing family situation. Actor @guylockard leads a full cast recording. His energy and enthusiasm is captivating. The narration also has sound effects, music, and and silly commercial breaks. Perfect for keeping kids listening. This is a story that will enthrall and entertain even the most reluctant of middle grade readers. This one deserves all the stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 

QOTD: do you add new holiday decorations every year? 

I haven’t bought any new holiday decorations in several years. We’ve traveled the past few years so we didn’t do much decorating. This year I bought a few gnomes and I love these little guys. I think they are really cute and fun.
