Looking for the Good Stuff: A Guide to Enjoying and Appreciating Life
Bob New; Kathleen Rich-New
A book that always makes me look for the Good Things in Life
I received this book as a gift. I really didn't think much about it when I received it, just another book. But, I came home from work one day mentally and physically exhausted and upset because my day had been horrible from the start to the finish, NOTHING went right. I was feeling very down about my life, and how it was all going. The book was sitting on my kitchen table and caught my ...

I Like Being Me: Poems for Children About Feeling Special, Appreciating Others, and Getting Along
Judy Lalli M.S.
Free Spirit Publishing
These poems make us smile!
It's amazing to hear how quickly and easily these poems are learned and recited by the children. The expression in their voices and on their faces are proof that these words have made a positive impression. Social skills are easily understood and internalized using this enjoyable approach. The poems are addictive: my students can't recite one without rolling into another. Teaching ...
Appreciating Whiskey: The Connoisseur's Guide to Nosing, Tasting and Enjoying Scotch
Appreciating "Appreciating Whisky"
My only complaint about most scotch whisky books is the boring and often impenetrable discussions on distilling and the chemistry of scotch. Hills makes these subjects not just accessible, but fascinating. Phillip Hills' "Appreciating Whisky" proved not only to be the most informative book on scotch I've read, but also the most fun. I've long distrusted the view that single malts don't alter ...

Gregory C Keck
Great resource for parents and professionals
Keck's latest book, Parenting Adopted Adolescents, is a thoroughly enjoyable read - conversational in tone, filled with practical advice, and humorous without being flip. The tack Keck takes is there in the title subtext: appreciation. It serves us parents well to check in on that emotion and value. Through our appreciation of our adolescent children in all that they are, we become better parents ...
Powdered Donuts on Monday: Appreciating Life's Simple Pleasures in Times of Adversity
"Powdered Donuts" is inspiring and full of God's promises! Lesha shared her story hoping that it would help others to find hope and lean on God through times of adversity. Adversity or not, it taught me to just be thankful for the little things in life and not sweat the "small stuff". We get so caught up in our day to day activities and take for granted that at least we are able to perform them. ...
Every Woman's Guide to Auto Racing: Understanding and Appreciating the Rules, Language, and Obsession with ...
what a gas! this book is a riot !
I've been driving VW's since my teens but I'm thinking about investing in a Dragster after reading this book. So I'm exaggerating a little bit... but it's only because this book was so hysterical. I'm hoping the author has a few more books up her sleeve.

The Magic Flute (Guide to Understanding and Appreciating Opera)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Black Dog & Leventhal Publishers
Great for grades 2-6
It's got great pictures and the CD has tracks that go along with each page. I don't recommend it for any students younger than 2nd grade. It's very "wordy."

Poetry by Doing: New Approaches to Reading, Writing, and Appreciating Poetry
"Poetry By Doing" was chosen to be recorded for the blind and dyslexic by RFB&D. The book was endorsed by many of the readers who recorded it, many of them with backgrounds in teaching and/or English. The choice of poems is enlightening and more original than most anthologies. A very clearly explained text is enjoyable reading for fun as well for educating students and is intelligently ...

`Books are the windows through which the soul looks out.'
I love this book. I borrowed a copy but quickly decided that I needed to buy my own. How else could I dip into the essays, enjoy the quotes and debate the lists? This book is both a self-contained banquet and a guide to all manner of bibliofeasts. This is a book for those of us who like possessing books as well as reading books. I am heartened to know that I am not alone in my reluctance ...
