The Youngest Templar: Keeper of the Grail: Book 1
A Book for Templar Enthusiasts of All Ages
When I was (finally!) able to get a copy of this book to review, I found it to be well worth the wait. The first in a series, the "Youngest Templar" chronicles the adventures of a 14-year-old orphan named Tristan and his adventures among the legendary Knights Templar. Although the book falls in the "young adult/fantasy" book genre, there is much to commend it for readers of all ages. From the ...
Talking, Drawing, Writing: Lessons for Our Youngest Writers
Stenhouse Publishers, 2007
This book is WONDERFUL. It clearly lays out mini-lessons in a way that makes you feel like you are watching them in action. It lists trade books to use as examples to tie into workshop. The format of the book is very reader-friendly and is not overly technical. I love that it is centered on kindergarten writers, although it is certainly useful for other primary grades as well. There are also some ...

Fiend: The Shocking True Story Of Americas Youngest Serial Killer
Brilliant. Highly Recommended.
I found this book both chilling and interesting. I will start by saying that I would not recommend this to people who have a weak stomach, as some of the crimes are described in gruesome detail. There were times when even I had to put the book down for a time and return to it later. It is interesting that, despite people's complaints about violence in today's youth, America's youngest serial ...

PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER
This is the best one of the best instructional models for teaching writing to the youngest of writers. It includes practical teaching strategies supported by sound teaching philospy. I wish it had been available when I began teaching 20+ years ago. I purchased it for a colleague who is a beginning teacher because I didn't want to part with my copy.
About the Authors: Writing Workshop with Our Youngest Writers
Katie Wood Ray
A Great Teacher
Not only is this book chock full of sound advice, rationale, and examples (a good balance, too!), but Katie Wood Ray is a remarkable author herself and serves as a wonderful model as she writes about teaching writing. I read this book cover to cover during a pretty densely packed quarter at school and have gone back to it again and again as a rich resource.

Mary, Queen of France: The Story of the Youngest Sister of Henry VIII
Three Rivers Press, 2010
Mary Rose Tudor
Mary Rose was the baby siser of the infamous Henry VIII. Many say she was also the most beautiful. She deffinately was never lacking in suitors. I get the impression that Jean Plaidy wanted to portray France's brief Queen as a precious and delicate flower, but one who was very sure and secure in her love from her older brother. Especially when she outright defied him and married for love after ...

Frank explores Frances Cleveland's adult life through letters, memoirs and newspaper accounts--providing strong first-hand accounts of the subject's life. A sense of who Frank was, her ideas, and her beliefs comes ...

A great resource!
This book is a great resource for early childhood educators! I had the great opportunity to take a reading comprehension class from one of the authors, Ruth Shagoury. This book came in handy while planning for my own kindergarten class in how to implement comprehension strategies. I recommend this book to all pre-K and Kindergarten teachers!
The Youngest Science: Notes of a Medicine-Watcher (Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Series)
Autobiography of a lifetime in medicine
This is an enjoyable book of a lifetime spent in the field of medicine. My favorite chapters were the early ones as Thomas looked back at what medicine was like early in this century, including what he remembers from his father's medical practice. This medical reminiscence differs from most other physician's writings in that Thomas has spent the majority of his career in research rather than in ...
