Starting Strength (2nd edition)
The Aasgaard Company
Starting Strength is an excellent read for any person interested in barbell training. Rippetoe writes plainly and there are many illustrations. Body mechanics, programming, and training dynamics are all discussed thoroughly throughout the book. It will make for an excellent reference guide for as long as I have it.
Stones into Schools: Promoting Peace with Books, Not Bombs, in Afghanistan and Pakistan
A very pleasing sequel
I was reluctant to read this book because I had enjoyed its prequel so much that I assumed, like most sequels, this would be a disappointment. I was so wrong - this story if anything was better written than the first book (a few typos notwithstanding). Instead of resting on his laurels, Martenson is just as dauntless in his quest to establish schools, this time in the even more hostile ...
Torey L. Hayden
I'm a sophomore in high school at an assembly one day, this book was mentioned. It seemed interesting so I bought a copy from on here. I must say this book was a fantastic read. Hayden as an author is wonderful and the story really caught my attention and grabbed hold of my heart. This was one of those books that I would not put down. It left me tearing and very curious as to where Shelia is ...
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
J. K. Rowling
Harry Potter #3 book on CD
This is the 3rd in the series that I have listened to. Jim Dale does an excellent job of reading and interpreting the Harry Potter books. You have a hard time believing all those voices are his!
The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs!
I love this book! I read it when I was a little girl and now I get to share it with my little boy.
Bill A. Martin Jr
Never Too Young to Learn to Read
Dr.Martin has demonstrated the beauty of repetition in developing vocabulary in young children. The colors will excite the toddler and instill a love of reading. His companion book, "Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?" follows the identical technique. However, as a childhood educator, Dr. Martin should know that snakes do not have ears and cannot hear. But Eric Carle's hissing boa ...

LORDS OF DISCIPLINE
RIVETING NARRATION OF THIS AMERICAN CLASSIC
A frequent Audie finalist and Earphones award winner Dan John Miller delivers a riveting narration of the book many have called an American classic. Also a film actor and songwriter Miller gives eloquent voice to protagonist Will McLean who attends the South Carolina Military Institute, which is a fictional military school and said to be inspired by Conroy's personal experiences at The Citadel. ...
Dealing With Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles)
Patricia C. Wrede
Sagebrush Education Resources
Adorable and Witty!!
What a joy to read this novel! I laughed from the opening pages! Wrede has an adorable wit that seasons every page, laughing in the face of traditional fairy tales. Tradition and what's "supposed" to be done in the fairy kingdom is just not what our main character Cimorene wants to do. What starts out as a quest to be happy turns into a bit of a mystery for her and her dragon to solve and becomes ...

Between death and triumph Harry ...

Involving your personal information which enables you to acknowledge some blocks and helps you make the changes you need in order for your dreams and desires to be manifested.

The Civil War: A Narrative : Fredericksburg to Stelle Bayou: 5 (Shelby Foote, th
Time Life Education
If my high school and college history courses used this set of books I certainly would not have slept through those classes. The narrative brings the Civil War to life; not just a bunch of facts.

An inspirational book
Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul ll is a great book written by teenagers and some adults about life. It teaches us about life and how to deal with it. It shows us that no matter where you came form, what you look like, or how you act, almost all teenagers are the same. This book is an inspiration to everyone. This book influences me because it inspires me to become a better person. ...

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie (If You Give...)
Laura Joffe Numeroff
Wonderful choice for a 2 year old
My 2-1/2 year old granddaughter loves this book! There are few enough words on each page that she doesn't get eager to turn the page before you finish reading the current page. The pictures are great and the storyline holds her attention. It didn't take long for her to be able to tell the story herself.
Time for Bed
First and favorite book for our twin girls!
We received this book as a gift and started reading it to the girls at bedtime when they were about 4 months old. The pictures are big and beautiful and as a parent you will never forget the words! My husband and I used to bet how far in the book we could get without yawning ourselves! Our girls are almost 3 now and they still love it. This book is a really wonderful gift for new parents!
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever
The Best Christmas Tale Ever!
Barbara Robinson has crafted a fantastic tale of the meaning of Christmas. In this 80 page book we come to fear and love the Herdmann clan, a gaggle of 6 kids that see the world their own way, and take it on in their own terms. They are just as likely to klonk a kid in the head as ignore them. They are the "closest thing to criminals that we knew." What does this have to do with Christmas? ...
Boot Camp for Your Brain: A No-Nonsense Guide to the SAT I
M. Denmark Manning
No-nonsense is right
This book by far beats out any SAT prep book that I have seen. Other books will give you general suggestions on how to take the test, like the tried and true process of elimination or some elementary math concepts that will guarantee a handful of right answers on the math section. Boot Camp for Your Brain delineates (sat word!) each section of the test, breaking down exactly what you need to ...

Andrew Chaikin's 3 book collection is fantastic with many beautiful pictures and some images I have never seen.The books are large and spread out. This can be a 3 set coffee table book on quality paper beautiful illustrated. Also there is much reading for readers to understand the different missions and the ...
The Kissing Hand--Large Format
Perfect for a child's first school days
The Kissing Hand is a story that I share with my preschoolers and their parents the first day of school. I encourage them to share a "kissing hand" with Mom or Dad, especially when they might be a little sad as they leave for school each day.
