|Disney Mania| By: A lot of people you have probably heard of.

|Type: CD| Title: Disney Mania| Artist: Various Artists (Anastacia, A*Teens, Usher, *Nsync, Ashanti, Smash Mouth, Jessica Simpson, Aaron Carter, S Club, Baha Men, Hilary Duff, Jump 5, No Secrets, Christina Aguilera, Ronan Keating)

Disney Mania is a great CD. What it is, is some of the most memorable Disney songs remade, and remixed by artists we hear on the radio every day. The CD is done so well and I was really happy with it. I would have to say the best tracks are: Under the Sea (A*Teens), I Wa'na Be Like You (Smash Mouth), and Beauty and the Beast (Jump 5). I highly recomend it to everyone who likes Disney the least bit or just wants some good clean music.

-Sugar, Spice and recycled Mice.

|Tales From The Secret Annex| By: Anne Frank

|Type: Book| Title: Tales From the Secrect Annex| Author: Anne Frank| Translation: Michel Mok and Ralph Manheim

Most recently I read Tales from the secret Annex. It was a great book. I think it teaches a lot about what Anne Frank believed in through stories, and essays she wrote before and durring her time in the secret Annex. It was quite touching. It makes me want to read her diary. The translation was good and the stories were not lost through it. It was an easy but tottaly worth while read.

-Sugar, Spice, and every thing Nice.

|Twenty and Ten| By: Claire Huchet Bishop

|Object: Book| Title: Twenty and Ten| Author: Claire Huchet Bishop|

I loved this book. It was very simple and an very quick read but well worth it.

The book is about 20 French children who are living in a school type place with their caretaker, Sister Gabriel. They are playing when 10 Jewish children come to hide with them because of the Nazi raids. The book is about how the French children treat the Jews and all of the problems they encounter. Great book, and really sweet. It is also based on a true story.

The Sims: Unleashed [review]

I have had this game since Christmas but like I said I am just now getting all my reviews up. :-)

If you have never heard of the computer game The Sims you should probably read the previous review before this one.

Sims Unleashed is one of the many expansion packs for The Sims, and sadly the only one I have. In Unleashed the Sims have the ability to buy pets. No not just hamsters and gold fish but cats, dogs, birds, reptiles, turtles, fish, and hamsters. This game is so fun. The Sims can go to stores that you create to buy the pets (and other various care items as well as other stuff), train them, and enter them into competitions. It is loads of fun!

After you buy the cats or dogs you train them. Cats can be trained to hunt the pesky mice that infest your house or the bunnies that invade your garden. The dogs can be trained to do tricks and to not use the house as a toilet.

Pets aren’t the only thing new. Now there are more items, clothes, skins, and even gardens. That’s right now the Sims can grow their own food to eat and store.

Overall I thought this game was and is great. I love it. It's even more fun than the first.

-Over and Out.

The Sims [review]

I have had this game for a long time but I am just only doing this review now.

For all those people who don't have or have never heard of the game it is a computer game (made by Maxis, aka the makers of Sim City) where you can create and control people called Sims. What you do is you create a family and a home and help the family do a number of things such as get jobs, go to school, pay bills, take care of their house, and basically stay alive. This is a fairly simple game. My sister figured it out when she was four years old all by herself and has been playing it since. It is a really great game. It is rated TEEN for mild violence and sexual themes. There isn't much anything to worry about though. It is just that when Sims are in love they can hug and kiss (nothing kids don't see their parents do though), and if Sims don't like each other they fight via slapping or fighting beneath a grey cloud (like cartoons!).

This game is very fun and super addictive. The best thing is that there are a number of cool downloads at www.thesims.com, and a lot of great expansion packs in stores and on line.
