    5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for toddlers
    I read this book to my toddler when he started hitting and then reinforcing it by saying hands are not for hitting when ever he would hit.It really worked - he loved doing some of the fun things that hands are good for as we read along.I liked it that it focused on positive things to do with your hands while still enforcing that hitting is not what hands are for.Great book!

    5-0 out of 5 stars great book
    shows many ideas of what hands can be used for and they are not for hitting.

    2-0 out of 5 stars It depend on what you are looking for .....
    This is a great book, if you want your child to think of all kinds of great things you can do with your hands.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fun, fun, fun!!!
    I have a just turned 5 year old that LOVES science and experiments.Although this book I believe was recommended for older children, there are plenty of experiments that I can do with him at his age and get immediate results.Since there are experiments that are targeted for older children, this is one of the rare books that we'll be able to use for several years down the road.I love it so much it's going to be one of my staples in gift giving - it's easy & fun enough for those even not interested in 'science'.

    5-0 out of 5 stars great book for young minds
    My 6 year old son absolutely loves this book.He was so excited about the experiments that everyone we knew was told about the new experiment.He understanding what he is doing with the experiments.I would recommend this book and I have to his teacher at school.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Kidz Love Science
    I bought this book for my son, and liked it so much that I bought 10 copies to give to each child at my son's birthday party.He wanted a science party so this was the perfect take-home gift for the kids. Beats a goody bag full of candy and plastic toys... but I don't want to digress on how I hate goody bags at birthday parties!The experiments here are interesting and easy to set up.And, the puzzles and games on the side make it something the kids can pick up and read on their own. ...

    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.

    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

    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.

    Through The Cracks is the most powerful book I have encountered in my 25 years in education.It is in storybook format but its greatest impact will be when this book is shared with educators, parents, and communities whodesire to see education become what it is meant to be - active, involved,exciting, and fun.I have read this book aloud to hundreds of educators incollege classrooms and workshop presentations.The response isoverwhelming every time. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Must for Classrooms Across America
    As an elementary principal, this book was loved by students and always checked out from the library. Trevor has a wonderful grasp on bullies and helps students in a sincere, motivating way. The dvd is super if you haven't checked into owning it. It's priced well and the animation/music is highly engaging. The material is solid and right-on with what I saw as an elementary principal and in dealing with bullying issues. If you are a teacher or can arrange author visits, go to trevorromain.com and look into a school/author visit. Trevor is inspirational for students, as well as adults, and will raise the bar for school-wide expectations with his "double-dog dare!" Trevor has visited our campus twice in two years and the students can't get enough!

    5-0 out of 5 stars No need to feel Helpless
    No child should feel helpless when it comes to the jungle of a playground.This book encourages dialogue and an internal sense of courage.The book is very kid-friendly.The language is perfect for those grade 3-6.The format and cartoon characters make the whole book and subject very approachable for kids. Whether bullied or not, this raises awareness to help all kids help themselves.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great in the Classroom!
    This book has been a valuable part of my classroom read aloud program for 3 years now.It is valuable in that it really speaks to the students on their level.It is straight-forward about the problems and realities of bullies and teasing.This book often provided a great springboard into valuable classroom discussions.Students become empowered to stick up for themselves and to understand the thought process of a typical bully.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Marvelous Bio. About the Creator of American Sign Language
    Born in 1787, young Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet was unlike other children his age, for he possessed a condition that made it hard for him to have fun and play with the other kids. His eyes were always watering, and his chest was always aching when he overexerted himself, so he was used to being left behind. However, this, in turn, helped Thomas with his studies, and got him accepted into Yale College at the age of fourteen. Thomas loved learning, and made a pact with himself that he would change the world in some way, he just didn't know how. That is, until he met Alice Cogswell, a deaf girl who couldn't communicate with the other children her age. Thomas soon headed to Europe to learn all about sign language, and brought it back to America, where he developed American Sign Language, and taught many children how to communicate with the outside world, and leave their isolation behind. This is his story.

    This is a really nice book.Lots of glossy color photos of star designers add to the enjoyment of reading this book.It's great for little or big girls interested in fashion.I especially liked the story of the little girl who made up a new kind of mitten.She's been very successful with her efforts.It shows that not everyone has to go to design school to be a success in the field.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
    I used this book to teach 2nd graders of an Elementary school in Mexico. They loved the activities!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Beginning ESL
    Although this book is more for children, there are some pages I was able to use for my adult ESL course.There are some nice diagrams along with good ideas on how to begin a level one class.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Invaluable resourse
    I recently taught ESL in China for a few weeks and found this book incredibly useful. Although marketed as being for grades 1-4, I found this book helpful for even high school students--it depends more on the level of language proficiency than anything else. For example, I used the "parts of the body" page to review what my students already knew, and then they filled in more complicated words such as thigh, shoulder, ankle, etc. The money page has very realistic drawings of the various coins, all of which were new to my students. The food pages were very helpful before moving on to more complicated lessons on ordering in a restaurant. A great book for a modest price! ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not that much Information
    I was looking for a book how to deal with teachers that are uneducated about ADD, my son has it and they just want to classify him as mentally retarted. I need more info.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Teachers! Take note!
    For its format alone, this is a must-buy for teachers and the administrators who work with them!As a middle school AP, I've visited far too many classrooms where teachers try to keep students' attention nailed to dreary handwritten overheads in black marker no less. Yawn.Every page of this book demonstrates what good overheads should look like (minus the color I'd like to see)while the text explains WHY this is imperative for ADHD students.GET IT!I love it. I ordered two more for my school.

    3-0 out of 5 stars I liked how the number was in the title
    When I saw this book, I liked that there was a number in the title and the @ thing too.But when I was reading it, most of the words weren't numbers.Some of the pages were pictures and I liked those ones the best.I think that if you wanted this book, you should get it.As someone who had a hard time in high school, making friends etc., I found this was a good way to think back on it all.I'm not sad anymore because of them. ...

Slowly Keisha begins to find comfort in 23-year-old Jonathan and starts going out with him. Soon the relationship takes a wrong turns when Jonathan takes Keisha to his apartment and tries to rape and kill her with his jack knife.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Painfully Wonderful
    There is pain in this book that you hope no one goes through. It follows Keisha after the death of her boyfriend, which is one thing she could've done without and then the near-rape she encounters. (Read TEARS OF A TIGER first.)
    5-0 out of 5 stars Christian's Review
    In the book a girl named Keisha has just lost her boyfriend. Andy killed himself because he and his best friends Rob, Tyrone, and B.J were in a car accident. Rob was the only one that didn't make it out of the car and he burned to death. Andy felt that it was his fault so he walked around with all this on his shoulders until he killed himself. Keisha had just broken up with Andy because of all his problems. That summer Keisha took Andy's little brother with her to the cookout. The cookout was something that the high school does every year and the students come and bring their little brothers and sisters. This summer, Keisha saw a guy that she thought was hot, so the summer passed and the new school year came. When she saw him, she acted as if she hadn't noticed him, but she did and she really liked him. At the same time, Leon liked her but she really had not paid any attion to that until one day she gave him a ride home and his dad started to say all this embracing stuff. So the conflict is she has to choose a boy (Leon) or a man (Jonathan).

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Survival Guide for Kids with LD
    This book is a GREAT way for kids to learn about their own Learning Disabilities (the book calls them Learning Differences).I read this book to my son to help explain to him why he's noticing that he's different fromsome of the other kids in school.The book creates such a relaxed,non-threatening attitude about LDs, and asks some really great questions tohelp the kids see which LD(s) fit them.It addresses ADHD as well!It haspicture drawings of kids having trouble in school that my son could reallyrelate to!He was at once interested, urging me to read more and more,even though he was learning that he was in fact "different". What a wonderful tool for families and kids to learn about each other andthemselves. It's a positive book about the harsh reality of LDs - and it'swritten specifically for kids!Do your child a favor - read this book withthem!It will open up conversations and give you both the language andcourage you'll need to tackle the days and years ahead! ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars An art educators delight.
    Learning Through Art is a wonderful teacher tool to expose students to art and artists through fun filled reading, writing, and observational activities. Many students have never visited or explored a museum. Learning Through Art gives students a feeling they have been able to visit a museum to discover and learn about art, art history, and art of many cultures. I share this book with students at the beginning of every school year and they love the activities. ... Read more
