4-0 out of 5 stars refreshing and up to date
I found this book very useful. It helped me make the transition from teaching English as L1 to English as a Second Language. The text contains many strategies and activities that have proven effective and can be applied to ESL and is also useful for teachers reviewing for their certification exams.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Reading Instruction Beginners Book
This is one of the most comprehensive and interesting books I had ever come across in my educational career.The authors not only teach the basics of reading instruction, but put forth a plethora of differing strategies/methods for application in the elementary and middle grade classrooms.

5-0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too
Gone are the days of boring, cumbersome, and, ultimately, not all that helpful encyclopedias.The new king of interesting resource information is here, and it's called PICK ME UP.Everything you've ever wanted to know about just about anything (and maybe even some stuff you didn't even know you wanted to know!) is included in the 300+ pages of this book.
5-0 out of 5 stars Like My Dad Said...
You learn something everyday!I got a copy of "Pick Me Up" and learn a lot of new things. It also reminded me how I liked to pour through volume of encyclopedias when I was a kid. "Pick Me Up" is a great reference book, conversation-starter, and bathroom book.

5-0 out of 5 stars What A Fun Book!
If you are someone who considers yourself an information junky then "Pick Me Up," is a book you will enjoy. It would be easy to say this is a book just for kids or teens, but Pick Me Up is a book that parents and educators will find useful and interesting as well. The full color book is so interesting and such eye candy that teens will want to close the lid on their laptops to check out this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars WHAT A DELIGHTFUL BOOK - WOULD BE A GREAT PRESENT FOR THE DRAGON LOVER
I was truely impressed with this offering.This is a wonderful little book about just what the title indicates "Dragonology."The entire book is producted in a sort of medieval mode, with wonderful illustrations.The books if filled with maps, puzzels, drawings, anatomy lessons (dragons of course), life styles (again, dragons) types, habits, origins, lore and even riddles.The work is quite a combination of originality and pure imagination from the author.This is one of those books that might first appear to be classified as juvinal, but it is so much more.The art work alone is worth the price of the book.The text is imaginative yet quite realistic in it's presentation.As I said, I was truely impressed with this one and highly recommend it.This would make a wonderful gift for any lover of dragons, dragon lore or for that matter just a fun read.

5-0 out of 5 stars LET YOUR IMAGINATION SORE!
If you like dragons, this is for you. Dragonology is a book for any age. It's cool that they show dragon skin and dragon dust. This book gave me more info on dragons, and I believe in dragons. I read in one night and I am always going back to it. I love dragons more, than I did, before I read the book. This book will leave you with all smiles.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fascinating look at the "real" world of the legendary dragon
"Authored" by noted dragonologist "Dr. Ernest Drake," "Dragonology" is a short but concise "encyclopedia" for anyone interested in the winged creatures of international lore.Divided into eight chapters, covering such diverse topics as "dragons of the world," "dragon biology and physiology," and "dragon behaviour," the book is profusely illustrated and generously features such hands-on additions as "dragon dust" and pieces of "dragon skin," all designed to satisfy even the casual dragon fan.

4-0 out of 5 stars Yeah, it's good
I have no other book to compare it to, but it helps me review for my AP Government class tests. I sometimes wish it had more multiple test questions to offer, but overall the information is well classified and it goes into decent detail on every topic. The sample essays are very helpful.

5-0 out of 5 stars Barron's Is God
Barron's has its shortcomings, sure.I'd still give it five stars, because I earned a 4 on the exam after speed-reading the majority of its contents in a single sitting having not taken a class.I will say this much: the answers to the questions on the exam are in this book; the trick is remembering them! Had I studied more rigorously (i.e., for a week), I am sure I would have earned a five.
2-0 out of 5 stars A American Government Book......not a book on AP Government preparation guide
I strongly discourage the purchase or use of this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gotta Have It!
I have purchased the Kindergarten HOP, it was incredible to see how quickly my son picked it up.Once we finished the yellow, we moved on to the First Grade HOP and are very excited about it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Really does work
My grandson loved the Kindergarten one, so I bought this 1st grade one next. This level does not include a computer game disk for a PC, but uses audio CDs. At this point he is over half thorugh it and does actually enjoy it. He does not like the women's voice on the audio (pretty much because she repeats it over and over) so my daughter stops the audio and says it herself. She has no issues with that and feels very positive about it. So it a winner to us.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hannah is over the reading hurdle!
We just started this program with our 6 year old daughter, Hannah and she is doing phenomenally well! She has never had an easy time with reading but something about this format - whether it's the brief lessons or multi-sensory approach - is really working for her. I would highly recommend if your child is struggling with reading or if you just want a comprehensive program to use as practice and preparation for the school year ahead. ... Read more

This book is full of ideas for teachers and reading specialists looking for ways to help teach literacy.Even if you work with struggling readers everyday, it's nice to pick up this book, find the section describing the difficulties a particular student has, and get quick, helpful ideas.I used this text as a graduate student studying to become a reading specialist.

Editorial Review

You won't find this book on a school library shelf--it's pure teenage anarchy. While many homeschooling authors hem and haw that learning at home isn't for everyone, this manifesto practically tells kids they're losers if they do otherwise. With the exception of a forwarding note to parents, this book is written entirely for teenagers, and the first 75 pages explain why school is a waste of time. Grace Llewellyn insists that people learn better when they are self-motivated and not confined by school walls. Instead of homeschooling, which connotes setting up a school at home, Llewellyn prefers "unschooling," a learning method with no structure or formal curriculum. There are tips here you won't hear from a school guidance counselor. Llewellyn urges kids to take a vacation--at least for a week--after quitting school to purge its influence. "Throw darts at a picture of your school" or "Make a bonfire of old worksheets," she advises. She spends an entire chapter on the gentle art of persuading parents that this is a good idea. Then she gets serious. Llewellyn urges teens to turn off the TV, get outside, and turn to their local libraries, museums, the Internet, and other resources for information. She devotes many chapters to books and suggestions for teaching yourself science, math, social sciences, English, foreign languages, and the arts. She also includes advice on jobs and getting into college, assuring teens that, contrary to what they've been told in school, they won't be flipping burgers for the rest of their days if they drop out.Read more

"She had the ambition of Napoleon and the talent of your average high school valedictorian."
5-0 out of 5 stars Life Changing
So much of schooling undermines true learning, and as a schooling mom of three who did homeschool for a few years, I think that it is vital for us to wake up, even one person at a time, to this reality.
4-0 out of 5 stars Very interesting, even from someone who will never quit school...
I picked this up during the summer, after realizing that after my (then) two-week-long attempt at learning German I was at the same level as I had been in French after my entire first YEAR of it.

5-0 out of 5 stars This Book Was So Great!!!!!!!!
This book was so great!!!! When I first got this book I didn't know squat, but ever since I got this book middle school doesn't seem that much scary to me anymore. So if your starting middle school then you should buy this book,also if you in 7th, 8th, and even beyond use this book for help throughout your school years!

5-0 out of 5 stars Most Read Book in Daughter's Room
My daughter loved this book. I purchased it for her just before she started 6th grade.She read it over and over as if it were her personal "school-bible".It gave her a good boost of confidence that she needed to transfer to a bigger, newer school.
5-0 out of 5 stars a great book for the summer before middle school
I'm in sixth grade right now, and in the summer of 2005, I was really scared about starting a whole new part of school. I was afraid I'd get lost, I would get bad grades, or none of the teachers were nice. But I was totally wrong for thinking about all of that. This book reassured me for the years to come, and made me feel that I wasn't alone. There were thousands of girls across the country starting middle school too. I felt prepared as I walked into the halls of middle school for the first time, and I felt confident that I would survive. And I did, for it's almost the end of the school year, and I'm having a great time! ... Read more

This is a book kids have been waiting for. As a school librarian, I can testify that copies of Oh, Yuck! are never on the shelf. Now there is a waiting list for Oh, Yikes! as well. Masoff writes in the most entertaining manner. She fully understands the mind of a child. Kids are so wildly amused by the subjects and the illustrations that they don't notice she's managed to include more facts than most text books. This is a wonderful book!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars good
I love transformers and this book bigng me good memories, is a good book.
4-0 out of 5 stars NOT QUITE ULTIMATE BUT STILL VERY GOOD.
Over twenty years after arriving on American soil the Transformers continue to be one of the most popular toy lines.But more than just a toy line, with some dozen different animated series counting both in the states and in Japan, as well as multiple comic book series, the Transformers also has a rich and colorful history.The Transformers Ultimate Guide covers the toys, comics, and animated shows in this 144 page book that begins with a history of Cyberton and the eons long battle between Primus & Unicron, the light and dark side of the same coin.The book is written by long time Transformers writer Simon Furman.We'll learn of the very first Transformer named Prima, and the civil war on Cybertron, led by Megatron against the unsuspecting Autobots.Sentinel Prime was the first Autobot leader and would be killed by Megatron, and pass on the Matrix to the Transformer who become known as Optimus Prime.A timeline traces the Autobot/Decepticon war right up and including their eventual crash on Earth millions of years ago.
5-0 out of 5 stars Robots in Disguise
I was skeptical that this book could deliver, but on opening the cover was immediately drawn in by its graphic spreads and the marriage of art and type. No one could hope to chronicle the multifarious incarnations of Takara's transforming toys; but someone has. No one could untangle all the plot threads weaving through the saga of Cybertron; but someone did. No one could possibly provide an engrossing account of Hasbro's marketing variations or its Sunbow division's many animated series; no one except Furman, himself an astute observer and able author of Transformer comics.

5-0 out of 5 stars Agreement!
I have to voice agreement with those who praise this as the best but I wonder how much of our love for the book is because it has sat on our desks for so many years and is the first place we go to check something!

5-0 out of 5 stars Clear, Concise, and Perfect for Handy Reference
The Middle Liddell, as distinguished from the practically useless Little Liddell and the unwieldy Big Liddell, is the best reference work for beginning to intermediate students of Greek.I always advise learners to get this dictionary.It is not that much bigger or more expensive than the Little Liddell, but it is vastly more useful.I also make a point of advising beginners not to get the Big Liddell for everyday use.Even professional classicists use the Middle Liddell for its clarity and conciseness, wading through the enormity of the Big Liddell only when necessary.I'M NOT KIDDING.Start here.Every learner gets the Big Liddell, thinking, "Better too much information than not enough," and they always regret their decision.
4-0 out of 5 stars Fair as a star when only one/Is shining in the sky
Dictionaries, however much we feel the need for them, always have to be handled with a certain amount of caution. Anyone involved in the compilation of such a work of reference has to be a jack of rather too many trades for total reliability. In even the best modern English dictionaries the derivation of words can often be seen to be dubious or even plain wrong by someone who has the requisite academic linguistic grounding. Such a grounding is infrequent, those working on the chain-gangs producing the dictionary are often not aware that there is anything lacking, but the general public are prone to believe that everything in so august a publication must flow directly from some fount of all wisdom and knowledge. Lewis and Short's Latin dictionary, the standard work of its kind for English-speaking readers of Latin, exhibits at one point the glaring and elementary error of stating that the feminine adjective Libyssa, Latinised from Greek, has some corresponding masculine formation Libyssus, and when I last saw the book nobody seemed to have picked the error up.

5-0 out of 5 stars To Be A King Reviewed by: Soren
The final legend. That's what To Be A King is. The final legend in the three that Soren, Coryn, the Band, & Otulissa have to read. In this book, they find a world of magic & chaos. Lord Arrin's forces of hagsfiends have split, forming other groups off nachtmagen. Rumors about a group of all hagsfiends led by Lord Arrin's old assassin, Ullryck, have been brought to the attention of the new King Hoole & Grank. They have just recently set up a new order called the Guardians of Ga'Hoole in the enormous tree which has come to be known as the Great Ga'Hoole Tree. There is also another rumor of a mad owl that has taken control of the Ice Palace in the N'yrthghar with his young hagsfiends. Soon, Hoole realizes, the forces of good will clash with the evil forces of nachtmagen. Hoole has the Ember, but to use it could be dangerous. So Hoole must make a choice-use the power of the Ember to restore the Ice Palace to it's former glory, or to let things go on without the strange, mysterious magic that is the Ember of Hoole.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners and parents
Most DK products for children are outstanding and this is one of them. It is a beginner's dictionary for Second and Third graders although my First Grader, who is an advanced reader uses it extensively. It has a section devoted to how to use the dictionary which is well explained and easily understandable for the student. From it a student learns that each entry tells what part of speech the word is (i.e. "noun"), how it is pronounced (used in the Dictionary only on some hard words) , other forms of the word, the plural, antonyms, comparisons, tenses, and related words, as well as a sample sentence. It also has a section on parts of speech "All About Words" which is well written, although the terms used to describe some parts of speech may not be the same terms used in different schools. For example, the dictionary describes some verbs as "Helping Verbs" where others describe them as "Linking verbs."
5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Kid's Dictionary!
This dictionary by Dorling Kindersley is just what a childs reference book should be.It is sturdy and brightly attractive and my 4 year old daughter often asks me to sit down with her and just look at the various pictures and tell her what word goes with them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
I thought this book was great - it had adventure. The overall feel reminded me of the book "Now I Know the Story of Samson". I recommend it to anyone.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Inspirational Holy Land Adventure
This is a wonderful portrayal of the Holy Land at the time of Jesus's ministrations. Ms. Speare is a master at plot and characterization. The Bronze Bow is both exciting and inspirational. It stands on a par with The Witch of Blackbird Pond. I will continue to read this story from time to time for the rest of my life and will pass it on to my grandchildren

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the most excellent books I have ever read!
This book is great. My class read it this year as one of our sixth grade novels. The Bronze Bow is about a boy named Dainel. Dainel's parents died when he was very young. His father was crucified, and his mother, who sat weeping at his father's crucifixtion, died a few weeks later. Daniel then had to live with his grandmother and his younger sister, Leah. Daniel leaves his home when he is thirteen years old. One day, five years later, Daniel saw two kids about his age. One of which he recognized. For moment, he was bewildered with who the boy really was until he remembered-he had gone to school with him. When Daniel goes up to Joel, he finds out the other person was his twin sister, Malthace. He asked how his grandmother and sister were doing. Joel and Malthace informed him that his grandmother and Leah were fine, and that his grandmother was sometimes seen out of the house. But Leah never came out. When Daniel goes back to the village, he remembers that Leah had been possessed by demons. They had a large variety of doctors see her, but no one could cure it. Daniel goes back to the village, and shortly after he recieved a message saying that his grandmother was dying. He went home to find his grandmother on her bed. Leah had nailed all of the doors shut and had never been out for about a week. Daniel visited his grandmother, when her last words spoken to him were, "Dainel, you came." Leah would rarely come out of her corner where she was balled up to see anything. Once Daniel and Leah's grandmother died, they moved into one of Daniels' friends houses where Daniel worked. Leah got to meet Malthace and became good friends with her. Daniel realized that whenever Leah would see Malthace, her attitude and personality would change-to be more like hers. That lasted until one very day. Daniel had gotten mad at her for being friends with a Roman, Marcus, and she became angry. Leah became very sick and close to dying.Daniel didn't know who could help her until he thought of one person-Jesus, who cured the demons from her forever. This book is extraordinary. I could read it again and again. I highly recommend it! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Not only for kids
Although in cartoons, as is happening to me, in my journey to financial freedom I need my wife to support me (sometimes there will be things most people won't get if they haven't read Kiyosaki before), and specially if your wife doesn't read this kind of literature, buy this book...for her! In less than an hour you'llunderstand the main message from Kiyosaki.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rich Dad broke the code.
I ordered this book with a skeptical outlook.The other financial instruction books I purchased for my teen lasted all of ten minutes.This book arrived, she opened it, started reading, and didn't put it down until finished.She was so excited, she called me at work to tell me she had learned about assets, liabilities, expenses, and income.She said the concepts were so simple, she didn't understand why they aren'tteaching this in school.Now, she's pointing out investments to me!Rich Dad actually got the attention and respect of a teenager.I'm very impressed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Help Your Kids Save Their Pennies
This is a children's comic book that presents kids with the information that goes way beyond"Save your pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves." There are also subtle lessons on values and ethics, too. It shows--pictorially, using two different styles--how a youngster can put the concepts they represent immediately to work. The book goes well beyond the "save your pennies" philosophy I was raised on. The book introduces terms that some kids never hear until they take their first economics class. I liked the presentation stylethat looks vaguely like a Tim Allen movie--artistic washes, subtle tones. Kids will love the brightly colored segments. More importantly--for the parents at least--they are sure to absorb some sound ideas about ensuring their own futures. The purpose of the book is clear: the sooner you learn to manage your money, the more you'll have to enjoy.
