    5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!
    What an amazing, thorough, comphrensive guide to everything Star Wars.NOTHING is left out.You get not only in depth profiles of every major character, but every OTHER character in the universe.It's so detailed that they break down each PART of each weapon, ship, etc.For someone like myself who isn't the biggest Star Wars geek (but wanting to learn more), this is a godsend.There are many, many, hardcore fans out there that can reference almost anything and anyone to do with Star Wars.Well, now you can too, and you don't have to see the films 3245 times to do it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book/CD set
    We are so happy to have received Philadelphia Chickens as a shower gift.While our 10-month old doesn't understand the lyrics, he clearly enjoys the music, bouncing and smiling whenever he hears, "Cows, we're remarkable cows....."The songs are very enjoyable for adults as well.I've given this as a gift to 3 friends and all have loved it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great purchase!
    Thanks for the great books.I bought two of the same from this owner.Both were new and in terrific condition.The CDs were perfect as well.Thanks!!!!!!

    We listen to this CD almost every day in the car. She's 2 yrs old now but we started listening to it at 1 year I think. She loves the "cow" song and used to ask for it every time we got in the car! ... Read more

    Really comprehensive and precise, helped me a lot in my backgammon ( http://www.play65.com/index.html?did=13870&tag1=11 ) game. if you want to know a thing or two about the game - give this backgammon book a try!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Clear and comprehensive, with lots of positions
    A great starting point for someone who wants to become a good Backgammon player.While the book is long, it doesn't drag, and the material is well presented.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant in its day but that day has passed
    This book is amazingly clear and well written but several positions are wrong. As are 2 whole chapters. Get 'Backgammon Bootcamp' by Walter Trice for an excellent accurate book. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars my daughters and I really enjoy this book!
    We`ve had this book for over 3 years now, and my 5 year old daughter, loves to look at it over and over again, and beleive me, everytime we read it, a different story develops or we discover something we had`t seen before. Now I have started reading it with my 2 year old, and she too is facinated by it, it has helped her with her vocabulary.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Zoom
    WOW.This is a very unique, wordless picture book that can be used for presenting the strategy of teaching students how to include details in writing by expanding ideas.

    4-0 out of 5 stars The Bigger Picture
    The friend who shared this book with me had received it from a family member who bequeathed it to her as she lay dying of cancer. It is a very beautiful and visual way of internalizing the concept that our lives and everything that happens to us and that we see around us is part of a bigger picture. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    A frustrated grade school artist, Vashti sits slumped over her blank piece of paper at the end of art class. "I just CAN'T draw!" she tells her teacher. Her teacher first uses wit, then subtle yet clever encouragement to inspire her student to go beyond her insecurities and become, in the words of a younger boy who "can’t" draw either, "a really great artist."Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars powerful concept in a simple presentation
    As a special education teacher I took a different message from the one intended by the author: when we honor what children CAN do, and give them the time/opportunity to demonstrate how far they can take that...they may surprise us, and even surprise themselves.I think it is particularly telling that the author/illustrator dedicated this book to his 7th grade /math/ teacher...clearly a teacher who could challenge/inspire/motivate his students to excell, even if that excelling was to be demonstrated in an area other than his own.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing!
    The Dot is an incredibly heart-felt story that should be shared in every classroom!

    5-0 out of 5 stars El Punto!
    Peter H. Reynolds has crafted a simple but inspiring story that recognizes the creativity in everyone and shows how simple words can inspire that creativity. This is a book for all those people who have been told they can't by someone, because it proves that imagination lies within us all and that we only need hear it from someone so that we may begin to believe it ourselves. Reynolds reminds us of the powerful influence of teachers and their ability to challenge the preconceived notions we might hold about ourselves, encouraging us to dream and turn those dreams into reality. ...

    Editorial Review

    After reading this book, I guarantee that you will never visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art (or any wonderful, old cavern of a museum) without sneaking into the bathrooms to look for Claudia and her brother Jamie. They're standing on the toilets, still, hiding until the museum closes and their adventure begins.Such is the impact of timeless novels . . . they never leave us. E. L. Konigsburg won the 1967 Newbery Medal for this tale of how Claudia and her brother run away to the museum in order to teach their parents a lesson. Little do they know that mystery awaits! ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
    This book is great so far. It is full of mystery and adventure. Twelve year old Claudia has run away with her brother Jamie to the Metropilan Muesum of Art. Claudia decided to bring along her brother Jamie with her because he has a lot of money. While they are there at the muesum, Claudia and Jamie come across a great mystery in the muesum that is all over the newspaper. If you would like to find out what this great mystery read this book! Teachers it is also a great book to read with your class. Also edutactional!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not mixed-up about how good this book is
    This Newbery award winner is about Claudia and Jamie, two kids who run away from home. They leave the suburbs and head to New York where they stay in none other than the Metropolitan Museum of Art. They sleep in an old bed in the French section. They hide in the bathrooms. They even take baths in a fountain (and get paid for it, sort of)!But when a new exhibit comes in, the fun really starts. The Angel is beautiful, exquisite, and mysterious. The question: is the sculpture really done by Michelangelo? Claudia and Jamie will do anything to find out. I think I loved the book mostly because I really liked the idea of living in a museum. This book is good for all ages, but I expected it to be longer.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A very short book
    Due to the shortness of this book, my daughter prevailed upon me to read it more often. It's very cute though.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for little ones!!!
    My 8 months old son loves this book and mostly at nightime. He'd rather this one than the other ones. Everytime when I start the song, he gets fascinating. The illustrations are great and catch my son's attention .......He Loves it!!!!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great book for nightime reading!
    My 11 month son loves this book! I read it to him almost every day before puttign him to bed. As I read the book, we imitate the gestures from the illustrations which he loves. I am only giving 4 stars because it's a short book, however I usually read it with a few other books before bed time, to make it up. ... Read more

    My four year old loves the Olivia books, and we couldn't wait to get this one.We laughed the whole way through, especially when she put on the lipstick.Hooray for Olivia!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Olivia Mails It In (or Falconer Mails It In) Your choice.
    My son enjoys the Olivia series immensely. "Missing Toy" and "Saves The Circus" are on their second copies at my house due to the wear and tear of the originals. We looked forward to "Forms A Band" and were delighted to finally get it at our local bookstore. Disappointed at the results puts it mildly. It is a disjointed mess, with a terrible ending (and if the end is political message, that is just awful and inappropriate)Olivia has lost her edge which is why we love her and the imagination scenes showed none, which is unusual for this series. Ours lasted two reads before it was pushed aside for one of the vibrant other Olivia books. I would buy this book only to complete a collection and nothing more. It is terrible. I would give it 0 stars if I could.

    5-0 out of 5 stars If It's Cronin, It HAS To Be Five Stars!
    In our library, we can't keep her books on the shelves, and the once-again winning combination of her words with Betsy Lewin's pictures just cannot be beat.Our small patrons love her books on one level, while their parents are getting a kick out of them on a totally different one.I always appreciate authors who understand that they have two audiences, after all, and Ms. Cronin feeds both appetites.The clever, gentle humor of this book will be welcomed by discerning parents, and by the end, I am sure of two things: Farmer Brown will never catch on, and I will never hear "Born To Be Wild" again without thinking of the beloved Duck.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Better than its predecessors!
    I didn't think life got any better than Click Clack Moo, but Dooby Dooby Moo tops it. I love it! Dooby Dooby Moo is one of those rare books that holds enjoyment for kids and adults alike. Kids like the story of the talent show and each animal's attempts to win, while parents get to laugh their heads off at the pig's interpretive dance. It's a great read-aloud book because the adult can sing along (very easy tunes we all know) and kids love that part. I highly recommend Dooby Dooby Moo, especially to any lover of Farmer Brown's motley crew. ... Read more

    This book contains allot of basic information on draping. The instructions are thorough and are acompanied by visuals, for extra comprehension. It also has a section dedicated to draping knits, a real plus! My understanding of the draping method, and therefore my skill, has improved on account of this book.

    This is a WONDERFUL book! We read it to our class of 3-year-old preschoolers, and they were absolutely captivated. They were so quiet and engaged that they forgot to ask when we were leaving to go on our field trip.
    5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT BOOK TO ACTUALLY GO OVER WITH YOUR KIDS TOGETHER
    This is one of those books that is absolutely made for the parent or teacher to read with the child, talk and listen.Each photograph is an absolute work of art.Not only do you get to expose the child to some wonderful art work, but also this book is an ideal set up for a nature study. It actually gives the adult, who hopefully has done their own homework, to interact with the child and add thier (adult and child) own thoughts.The story is not much, but this is one of those works where the story, if more detailed, would just get in the way.I liked the concept of this work.This is a good one to work with the child in the fall.After reading and discussing the book, a walk in the woods, yard, park or what ever, can bring out quite a lot of insight from the child...they can relate.Recommend this one highly.

    I love all the songs on this CD! Catchy, rhymthic, fun to sing and listen to. Most are familiar.I enjoy them as much as the children. I had the audiocassette and book years ago and am so glad to be able to get it on CD. Perfect to use with children's groups.

    This is a wonderful collection of favorite Bible songs. The second section of the book, the praise section, is especially good. I enjoy singing along with many of these songs as much as my children do. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Chasing Vermeer Review by C. Shipman
    When a priceless piece of artwork by Vermeer, a relatively unknown artist from the 1700s, called The Lady Writing is stolen on its way to Chicago, Petra Andalee and Calder Pillay take into their own hands to find it. These to eleven year olds find a old book by Charles Fort, which goes into detail goes into about coincidences between disappearing people and frogs. This book used to belong to their grumpy, old neighborMrs. Sharpe. Whose husband just happened to die an untimely death right after he made a breaking discoveryon Vermeer. All these thongs are oddly connected. The thief of The Lady Writing has a theory that not all of the work of art credited to Vermeer is his, and tells the public via the newspaper that he will destroy The Lady Writing if this mistake is not corrected. This turns out to be a hoax, the thief was working for someone who wanted to own The Lady Writing.It was his plan to let the public think that The Lady was destroyed. Petra and Calder find this out, and find out that the painting is hidden near they live, in fact it is in University by their houses.They rescueit, but not before the thief sees them and pursues them.Calder trips and hurts himself, and Petra runs off with the painting, and alerts the police.Calder manages to get away, and the thief is found dead on a train.Chasing Vermeer by an exciting art mystery that is sure to be an enjoyable read for any youth.

    Editorial Review

    "One night, after thinking it over for some time, Harold decided to go for a walk in the moonlight." So begins this gentle story that shows just how far your imagination can take you.Armed only with an oversized purple crayon, young Harold draws himself a landscape full of beauty and excitement. But this is no hare-brained, impulsive flight of fantasy. Cherubic, round-headed Harold conducts his adventure with the utmost prudence, letting his imagination run free, but keeping his wits about him all the while. He takes the necessary purple-crayon precautions: drawing landmarks to ensure he won't get lost; sketching a boat when he finds himself in deep water; and creating a purple pie picnic when he feels the first pangs of hunger.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars bring your imagination
    If you have a small child who is not crazy about books, try this one.I have yet to read it to a kindergarten class who was not enthralled with it. Harold is a delight for young and old.He is lovable and at the same time all-powerful, wielding his purple crayon as he chooses.This is a classic no family should be without.

    5-0 out of 5 stars "And the moon went with him."
    This is a book of such simplicity, both in its words and its illustrations, that one may dismiss it at first glance. Don't! Harold and the Purple Crayon is a magical book. Its popularity may have waned since its original publication over 50 years ago, but it has such enduring charm. Harold has such a wonderful imagination, and in his hands the purple crayon does incredible things. If you've never read this book, please join Harold on his journey. I can't imagine you'll be disappointed.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Harold - fifty years on!
    I bought this fiftieth edition for my daughter because it was one of her favourite books when she was young. She is twenty-five now and the old book is falling to pieces and still has her added drawings in it. She was very happy with the new shiny copy, even though the original was smaller in size. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book!
    My kids and I love "Scribbles". We also purchased "Doodles" at the same time. The drawings are fun and my kids are always entertained and challenged...great for car trips or anywhere you and your kids are stuck sitting around waiting.

    My son is 4 and really loves this book.I initially bought it for use in the car on long trips but it was too heavy for him to hold and color in his lap.He loves using it at home on the table.

    5-0 out of 5 stars the most amazing coloring book ever
    this book is truly incredible. it really allows the child to be completely creative and develop outside of the box thinking. i highly recommend this unique coloring/activity book. yes, it is a little pricey and 19 dollars, but well worth every masterpiece they create in it. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great read
    Very good reading. I was impressed by the knowledge. I expected it to more about the show with very little information about wicca.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Charmed: THE BOOK OF SHADOWS
    GREAT BOOK!!!First off all,if your a reader & you enjoyed the show Charmed,then I advise you to purchase this book,it goes deeper into the knowledge behind the show & if your a practicing Wicca,like myself then you'll really enjoy this book. There are places within the book inwhich you can write your own experiences & such & there are chapters within the book that help you better understand the knowledge & practices & what made the show such an success!

    3-0 out of 5 stars could have ben better

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fun for adults, too!
    We received this CD for a gift a year ago and my kids(4 1/2 and 13mo) and I still BOTH enjoy hearing it!Fun, catchy tunes, with a bit of humor for adults, and silliness for kids.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Wholesome family entertainment we can ALL sing along to!
    Despite some unevenness , this album and its accompanying book are a drive-time hit in our household - amazing considering my kids are 10 and 11 - oh, and a baby, who probably doesn't get all the subtleties, but enjoys the music nonetheless.
    5-0 out of 5 stars For the seriously silly
    This is first rate music for adults and kids.It is Disney quality family fun.Great music that kids and the kid that lives inside each one of us can enjoy.I still find myself singing some of the lyrics from the Turkey Love Song and Tropical Sands (particularly since I live in Alaska)..... ...
