Wondrous Words: Writers and Writing in the Elementary Classroom
Katie Wood Ray
National Council of Teachers of English
THE BEST EDUCATIONAL RESOURCE OUT THERE!
As a writer of children's books and a second grade teacher, I refer to this book often - for support, guidance, affirmation, ideas, writing help, and more. It is perfect! I hope to have the opportunity to cross paths with the author one day...I'd love to see her speak! I recommend it all the time to teaching colleagues, friends, writers, and editors.
The Water of the Wondrous Isles
Public Domain Books, 2005
wonderful tale of strong women in dire straits
what must it have been like to have been a powerful, independent woman and to have read this epic fantasy in 1895, the year of its publication, twenty five years before women were given the vote in America? this epic of powerful, able females (and the bonds of friendship which both bind and conflict them) is far more than a melodrama of its day, and William Morris was a visionary in his ...
This Odd and Wondrous Calling: The Public and Private Lives of Two Ministers
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, 2009
A Window into a World
A potential occupational hazard of ordained ministry is certainly loneliness (ironic in a setting filled with people), as highlighted by a recent Christian Century article on clergy depression. As such, this little gem of a book by Lillian Daniel and Martin Copenhaver is a bracing tonic, giving expression to what has been heretofore the secret life of pastors. Both authors write movingly of their ...
The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
My product arrived on time and in the expected condition. I had a great experience with the seller.
Wondrous Wizards (Dover Coloring Books)
lovely book but pages are printed double sided
This is a lovely book of some fantastic wizard drawings - love it! Only problem is that the pages are printed double sided, so if you use ink/felt tip pens, it bleeds through onto the other side. So the drawing on the opposite side is now unusable. I plan to either buy another copy for coloring the back side pages, or make photocopies as was suggested in another review.
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
brilliant from start to finish
This book is a five-star read. I was shocked to see that this book had only received 4 stars in the reviews. It is an amazing story that it not only superbly written but captures you and keeps you page-turning. I carried the book everywhere so I could try and get to the next part of the story. It is steeped in knowledge and yet maintains a fantastic blend between history and realities of life. ...
Angkor: Cambodia's Wondrous Khmer Temples, Fifth Edition (Odyssey Illustrated Guide)
Odyssey Publications, Ltd.
THE Must-have Guide to Angkor
This is, without doubt, THE must-have guide to the Angkor area. Dawn Rooney writes with clarity, thoroughness and a balanced view of the monuments without talking down to (or over the head of) the reader. Some books on this area read like travel brochures, others like snobby scholarly textbooks. Ms. Rooney's book strikes the perfect balance between the two. I'm a research-aholic about my ...
Darklight (Wondrous Strange)
Oh such a good sequel
In my opinion this book was better than the first, of which I luved! It was a much higher stakes kind of book and was executed brilliantly. I thought the ending was sad but hopeful. I am soo excited to read the next enstallment! I would recomend this book to a rock if a rock could read!
Wondrous Strange (Wondrous Strange (Quality))
I love this book!
I picked this story off the shelf at my library and I had to buy this book! I had no choice, that is how much I love this story. The main charactors are wonderful, expecially Sonny! And I would reccomend this book to anyone who loves Fantast, Fearie and Romance!
A Wondrous Journey - A Small Book with Big Lessons
Dr. Martha MacGuffie
Lynn Cluess Manzione
Two Harbors Press
A Wondrous Journey shows us what can occur when action is taken. When photographer Lynn Cluess Manzione decided to take on a project to counter what certain media are portraying as ''women worthy of our attention,'' she found herself on an incredible journey. Manzione traveled through time with Dr. Martha MacGuffie, a retired surgeon and eighty-six-year-old humanitarian whose poignant story not only achieved the photographer's mission to ...
Welcoming Consciousness: Supporting Babies' Wholeness From the Beginning of Life-An Integrated Model of Early ...
Wendy Anne McCarty
Wondrous Beginnings Publishing, 2009
The Key to Our Positive Future
Dr. Wendy Anne McCarty weaves together quantum physics, pre-and-perinatal psychological research, and what spiritually developed individuals have always known, despite the efforts of 20th century science to compress all that is "real" and "known" of Nature into her physical plane. What emerges is a scientifically validated view of our true nature: "our primary nature is as conscious, sentient, ...
Grumpy Old Rock Star: and Other Wondrous Stories
Around about August 1948, Mr and Mrs Cyril Wakeman had an early night and some time later, at Perivale in Middlesex, Mrs Wakeman produced a bonny baby son. They named him Richard, but he quickly became known as Rick. Rick was a likeable little fellow who had a talent for the piano and for making trouble. Music became Rick's life - he joined a popular music group called Yes and became a legend. Much later he became a Grumpy Old Man who appears on ...
The Golem and the Wondrous Deeds of the Maharal of Prague
Yale University Press, 2007
Clasic of Jewish Folklore
This is a translation from the original manuscript written by Yudl Rosenberg in 1909. It was a response to the terrible blood libels which had gained credence in the 1890s and was leading to greater attacks on Jews. Rosenberg relies on age-old Hassidic hagiography and folklore to create this folk tale of Rabbi Liva and his creation through kabbalah of the Golem, a manlike creature made from dust ...
The Cute and the Cool: Wondrous Innocence and Modern American Children's Culture
Oxford University Press, USA, 2004
Clever and Innovative!
This book is so enlightening! I never really thought about children's culture in this way before. The tension between the cute and the cool has been under looked until this clever and extremely readable account.
Yellowstone Autumn: A Season of Discovery in a Wondrous Land
University of Nebraska Press, 2009
Fishing (or not) Writing at Its Best
Maybe you need to be male, in your 50's and a fly fisher to get this book ... but then again, maybe not. It's about trying to age with some grace, the joys and problems of family life, Yellowstone Park and how we interact with the environment ... and yes, some fishing ... with flies. Wetherell has won numerous writing awards, but doesn't have the following that I think he deserves. I highly ...
Ancient Greece!: 40 Hands-On Activities to Experience This Wondrous Age (Kaleidoscope Kids)
Williamson Publishing Company
Activities for teachers to use in their unit on Greece
When I was in the sixth grade we moved twice, and in all three of the schools from New Jersey to Connecticut to Japan I got to study Ancient Greece in the history part of the class. I also got a lot of mileage out of having read Edith Hamilton's "Mythology" (I still have my mythology report with my versions of all of the illustrations). But in all the times I got to study Ancient Greece before, ...

Timely shipping and book was in really good shape. Great Buy, will buy from again.
Wondrous Strange: The Life and Art of Glenn Gould
Oxford University Press, USA
the mysteries of a perfect art
This unstoppably heartrending biography of Canadian pianist Glenn Gould unveils the mysteries of a perfect art more cogently and beautifully than has any other artist's biography I've ever come across. Kevin Bazzana has opened up Gould's eccentricities and placed them where finally they must sleep - merely deep in the natural whole of one of the inescapable musicians of the 20th century. Those ...
What Wondrous Love Is This: Hymns of Wonder and Worship to Remember His Love (Hymns of Love and Worship)
Joni Eareckson Tada
Powerful, Emotional, and Uplifting
I heard about this series of three books with their accompanying CDs from from a radio interview with Joni. She was expressing concern over how Christian music is losing its depth of meaning and its doctrinal reinforcement. Joni has succeeded in selecting and rendering some of Christendoms most relevant hymns to encourage and edify the Church and the Lord jesus Christ. The reader/listener will ...
Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service/Smithsonian Books
To Be Read As Well As Viewed
Although this is a "coffee table" style book, and the pictures are excellent, its stated goal was to review the interaction of humans with Antarctica, and it does this exceedingly well. Ms. Myers insights and her expressions of the feelings of being on this beautiful continent are excellent. Study the photos well, but read the text thoroughly. By all means, get this book if you have any ...
