This book enables me to explain death in a simple way tht allows them to not be ...
Winterdance: Fine Madness of Alaskan Dog-racing
Orion mass market paperback
More Than Just a Dog Story
If you love dogs, you absolutely have to read this book. And, if you don't love dogs, you still absolutely have to read this book because it is so rich in its enthusiasm for living life and meeting its challenges that it would be a shame to miss it. Paulsen enters the Iditarod, but the book is much more than his account of the race. His description of preparing for the race is rich in humor ...
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 ...
A Guide for Using The Best Christmas Pageant Ever in the Classroom
Teacher Created Resources
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? ...

There are a lot of great books out there for people who have already written and published their book, but if you are an aspiring author, this is a must-read for you! Buy this book, write your book, decide how to ...
Tomorrow When the War Began
Macmillan Children's Books
Probably the most accurate portrayal of modern AUS teens.
Yeah, yeah it set in a fictitious war that would never happen etc. but what really got me is how accurate John potrayed MODERN australian teens. I'm reading all these lovely reviews from older readers, but i must say if you are australian and have teens make them read this book before it's too late. I'm pretty much writing this because there was an australian program that interviewed John M and ...
The Code Book: The Secret History of Codes and Code-breaking
Fourth Estate Ltd
what the others said
This book is one of the most highly-rated non-fiction books on Amazon, and for good reason. I won't reiterate the other reviews except to say that the clarity of presentation of complex material is extraordinary. The one caveat is that the book is now ten years old, so you'll need to look for something beyond this to bring you up to the present.
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
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 ...
Dealing With Dragons (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition)
Patricia C. Wrede
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 ...
Goose Hunting: Improving Your Skills
It was a great book.
This is the best of all waterfowl books. Thanks!
Miracle in the Andes: 72 Days on the Mountain and My Long Trek Home
Random House Audio
Through the lenses of maturity
I have always been haunted by this story, mainly because my father, a longtime aviator, told me what happened right at the time the world was shocked by the news they were alive. And now, more than 35 years after, Nando Parrado has the fantastic idea of writing his own book, whose biggest merit is exactly the naturally acquired maturity of the author. He escapes from the easy calling of ...
The Arabic Alphabet: How To Read and Write It
Concise, Yet Elaborate
I recently decided to stimulate my cognitive system by learning a language that differs significantly from Latin based languages, Arabic. I purchased the Rosetta stone software, $280 or so, however, that was nearly useless for a beginner due to a lack of attempt to initially acquaint the student with the alphabet and grammatical rules, which I believe are most essential aspects of a language. ...
How I Raised Myself From Failure
One of the most significant books of all
It's taken me over 40 years to have even heard of this marvelous treatise on salesmanship. I just can't believe it!! It is a classic that can only be summed up in the forward to the book by Dale Carnegie, "The most helpful and inspiring book on salesmanship that I have ever read." It is must reading for ANYONE in or contemplating a career in sales. Moreover, it is simply a very sensible method of ...

COULD BE A MOVIE!!!
I FIRST READ R-F-W IN 1992, I HAVE SINCE READ THE NOVEL 10 TIMES. AS A CIVIL WAR BUFF I REALLY ENJOYED THE WESTERN FRONTIER BATTLES. IN HISTORY CLASS ONE USUALLY NEVER GETS MUCH INSIGHT ON THOSE AREAS OF THE CIVIL WAR. I LOVE THE PASE OF THIS NOVEL, IT SEEMS AS IF IT NEVER SLOWS DOWN. I REMEMBER AS A KID FALLING IN LOVE WITH THE CHARECTERS AND WANTING TO BE THEM. WHEN I DEPLOYED TO IRAQ IN 03 ...

Confessions of a Public Speaker
O'Reilly Media, 2009
A crucial read for anyone responsible for presentations
Before speaking at a national event, I put myself through a public speaking crash course that included multiple coaching sessions from my wife--whom was a national forensics champ in a previous life--and by reading this book. The two balanced each other perfectly. This book is written in an easy prose style that goes down like a drink of water, and is packed full of both useful philosophies for ...

I bought this for nostalgia reasons; it reminded me of pouring over this book with my friends back in elementary school. Pick this up for your kid, or for yourself.

Skyhorse Publishing, 2008
Amazing amount of good usable information
This book is awesome!! There is so much information available in this book: everything from making soap to making baskets, gardening, building your own home, it is simply amazing. This book is put together very well. It is not a story book, but a topical/reference type book. Meaning you do not need to read the entire book to locate a specific task or piece of information; if you are looking ...
