The Big Picture Story Bible
David R. Helm
Evangelical Truth For Preschoolers
We bought this for our 5 year old son as an Easter gift. We own several other children's bibles and none have ever captured his attention for more than 15 seconds. I am happy to say that not only did he hang on every word; but he begged for me to read more! We read between 1 and 4 sections each night to him and his 7 y/o sister. Although she is old enough to read her Discoverer's Bible on her ...
This novel met all my expectations of the genius offered by Jodi Picoult. The psychology behind always having to be 'picture perfect' is shown with great insights. I'm an avid fan. Irene
Pictures of Hollis Woods
Patricia Reilly Giff

The Picture of Dorian Gray and Other Writings (Enriched Classics)
Simon & Schuster
Beauty Is a Form of Genius.
Oscar Wilde was one of the foremost representatives of Aestheticism, a movement based on the notion that art exists for no other purpose than its existence itself ("l'art pour l'art"), not for the purpose of social and moral enlightenment. Born in Dublin and a graduate of Oxford's Magdalen College, he initially worked primarily as a journalist, editor and lecturer, but gradually turned to writing ...
The Picture of Dorian Gray
Beauty is only skin deep
I loved the idea that someone's true nature can be portrayed on a canvas. Although a beatiful young man, Dorian finds that his debauchery and sin are not reflected by the state of his own body, but by the image cast in a painting. As Dorian continues his decline in morals, an interesting question arises. Kind of a "which came first, the chicken or the egg" type of thing. Was his soul corrupted by ...

Pictures at an Exhibition (Vintage)
museum of the mind
"Why worry about (the paintings) out there? You'll have a museum of the mind." So why is ownership of a work of art so important, important enough to demand frenzied bidding at auctions and astronomical values. For Max, the narrator of this book, it is the significance to his family of a painting by Manet that spearheads decades of postwar searching. The infamous looting of art treasures by ...

Hooray for Holy Wood!
Terry Pratchett's MOVING PICTURES is his hysterical take on Hollywood, which in the book becomes the Holy Wood. It features a host of great characters, including a couple of my favorites, the Librarian ("Oook") and Gaspode the Wonder Dog. On the million to one chance that Terry Pratchett reads this review (which, of course, by Discworld logic means that he will without any possible question ...
