    5-0 out of 5 stars Why there are these different reviews
    I had this book in freshman yr. as well as the geometry book that follows in sophmore yr of high school. In my own classes i often found that the people whom said bad things about the book such as those in the following reviews are the people who either did not pay attention in class, or did not care about the subject enough to put the effort to try to understand the matter. On the other hand, some of the concepts were a little advanced, but my teachers usually explained them in a way we could understand.If the student is doing their job as well as the teachers there shouldn't be a problem with this book. I would strongly recommend it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars BEST BOOK EVER
    Don't listen to what the other people are saying. I got first hand experience on this book. I must say that this is probably the best and most easy to understand math book i have ever used. The answer key in the back allows the user to assure that their answers are correct. If you are considering buying this book, i must say YES, DEFINATELY BUY THIS BOOK, IT WILL BE WORTH YOUR WHILE!!!!

    1-0 out of 5 stars this is the most suckiest book i have ever read about algebra
    this book sucks, it taught me nothing, because of this boook i faild algebra.

    Editorial Review

    "Is it a fact--or have I dreamt it--that, by means of electricity, the world of matter has become a great nerve, vibrating thousands of miles in a breathless point of time?" If you, like Nathaniel Hawthorne, are kept up at night wondering about how things work--from electricity to can openers--then you and your favorite kids shouldn't be a moment longer without David Macaulay's Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing Book for the Inquisitive.
    This was one of my favorite books as a child, and is a great deal of the reason why I have such an interest in science.The explanations are well written for anyone to understand, and the diagrams really help the reader understand the science better.If you, like me, take things apart to find out how they work, this is the book for you.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great book
    The book was a gift. It helps in the learning process.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Work of Art
    "The Way Things Work" took almost three years to create. A cute and sometimes silly "Great Wooly Mammoth" makes his appearance throughout the book. The facial expressions and animal antics are at times very amusing.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
    While we are in the very, very early stages of potty training my son still loves this book and his Elmo book about being Big enough for a bed. These are great books for toddlers.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Book but not waterproof
    My daughter loved this book, she liked that it was Ernie a character she knew, the only downside was she took the book everywhere including the bath tub so now the book is dry again but swollen.LOL!!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Daughter love to read this on the potty!
    Just begining to introduce potty training to my 2yo and she LOVES this book!From reading and looking at the pictures, she has finally made the association between diapers = baby and potty = big girl.This made a big difference in her desire to go to the potty! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Effective and Relaxing
    The belly breathing, affirmations, relaxation get my kids calm! The four stories are just the right length to keep their attention and get them to do actual stressmanagement techniques. The author never tells the children what to do or that they are being taught. The kids just follow the stories and characters along and learn to manage their own anxiety with actual techniques.
    1-0 out of 5 stars SAVE YOUR MONEY
    I purchased this cd for my four year old a few months ago and disliked it enough to bother to write my first review of anything i've ever ordered through the internet."Bedtime stories" is a misnomer.There is no story content. After the first few lines read by the narrator, I found that her unnaturally slow,moronic verse didn't have a relaxing or somnulent effect but did, ironically,irritate me.I sat quietly listenting to the cd until my daughter asked me to turn it off-- only a few minutes into the cd.I skipped through the cd to see if it got better-- it did not. I suppose the point is to bore the child to sleep, but neither I nor my daughter could bear to listen to the "stories."This was the first item that I've ever puchased on-line for which i felt truly RIPPED-OFF.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Can't recommend highly enough

    5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Incredible
    I was in awe when my son received the Dinosaur book for Christmas from his Grandfather. I saw this book in a Parents magazine and had to get it based on the fact that the Dino one was incredible. My 3 year old loves it! It's not a book to let him play with unless you want it destroyed. Instead, this book allows us to make some quality time for each other when we sit down and look through it. It's very informational, and as he grows older I'm sure he'll read it, but at this point the pop-ups are worth it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars My son loves the book
    This is a very interesting book.My 5-year old has really enjoyed the book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece of Pop-up books.
    A Great Book to Read With the Kid on your lap. Probably best for kids in the couple or three grades. Best for kids on your lap because pop-up books are rather fragile. Grabbing the nose of the shark and using it as a handle to lug the book around is likely to lose the nose to your shark.

    5-0 out of 5 stars THIS IS JUST A WONDERFUL BOOK
    and it leaves you feeling so darned good after you read it.The main characters, Owen, a baby hippo, and Mzee, a 130 year old Aldabra tortoise, form a remarkably close bond which continues to this day (and can be followed in their caretaker's diary on the website of Laforge Ecosystems, that lost nearly 250 employees in the December 16, 2004 tsunami, and which contributed to Owen's washing up on a coral reef in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Malindi, Kenya).
    5-0 out of 5 stars Owen & Mzee
    This is a wonderful story, to be enjoyed by both children and adults. The message is universal and inspirational showing that friendship has no boundries. The book is well illustrated with some incredible pictures.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Every household must have this book
    I saw the book while waiting for my flight in the San Francisco airport bookstore.It is just one of those books that grabs every one of every age.A baby hippo is stranded by the huge tsunami, and is rescued and befriended by a most unusual pal. It just oozes goodness and the real life photos are marvelous.As a former elem. school teacher, I've seen many books and this is one of the must haves. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Distinguished Mystery Book(siobhan fitzgerald, age 11)
    Flush is a mystery book that I would highly recomend for younge readers. Dusty Muleman, is the criminal who is supposidley dumping sewage into the many waters of Thunder Beach to save money. This book also includes fantastic thrills to were Abbey and Noah Underwood come into close incounters of being caught while full filling thier full proof plan. They also have a couple of former crew members to help them capture the crook and save the beach for both wildlife, and themselves.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hiaasen is fun and fast!
    Flush takes place in Florida. Noah Underwood, the main character, is trying to catch Dusty in the act of dumping his casino boat's waste in the water. HIs father knows that Dusty is doing this, so he sunk the boat. Pane Underwood (Noah's father) goes to jail for sinking the boat. This book is hysterical, a must-read, can't-put-down!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing!
    This book is amazing!Even though I really didn't get it when I first got this book and there was a fish on the cover of a book called Flush.I read this book and I liked it so much!It was funny, surprising, and daring at the same time. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Great Book but Rips Apart QUICKLY- NOT DESIGNED FOR TODDLERS!
    My Son loves these books. However, the flaps rip off very easily. He really misses these books! Without a lot of effort or very aggressive "lifting", these flaps on several of Karen Katz's books ripped right off.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Flap books always a favorite
    The children seemed to enjoy the reading of this book.They were especially taken by finding the surprises under each flap. If there were one detail I might change would be to make the word under the flap more easily visible without having to fold the flap all the way back. It doesn't lay flat again after that.We read the book again and again.

    5-0 out of 5 stars From a student.
    I had to use this book for a UW Independent Learing course because I failed the geometry course offered at my school. It is a great book for talented student that are planning to take more advanced math courses.
    5-0 out of 5 stars This is the Absolute Best Book Available in America Today
    This book is extremely well thought out. The problems range from very accessible to very challenging. The book is thorough and teaches Geometry in the way that it should be taught, with a rich mathematical foundation and many opportunities for students of all abilities to learn to think criticlly. The Teachers' resource materials are excellent. There are two sets of tests, one more accessible and one more challenging. The Reteaching and Practice resource is an excellent source of class work handouts. To me this book is just as fine as the Algebra 1 book from the same series.To the best of my knowledge, this is the best book currently available in the United States. Students who are lucky enough to use this book, will be well prepared for standardized testing. ... Read more

    I thought this book was great - it was really colorful. The overall feel reminded me of the book "Now I Know the Ten Commandments". I recommend it to anyone.

    5-0 out of 5 stars this story was written by a woman, not Watty Piper
    This story was originally written as "The Pony Engine" by Mabel C. Bragg. The Book "Little Engine That Could" is merely "RETOLD" by Watty Piper. The story was written by a woman who NEVER gets credited for it--Mabel C. Bragg. It's a charming, timeless story and an American Children's literature classic not to be missed.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Far better than most others
    This is a well thought out Algebra textbook.I started teaching from it earlier this year and have grown to appreciate it very much.I am especially pleased the more I compare this to other books.Most math books these days are little more than pretty colors, crazy fonts, neat pictures, lots of distractions, and very little actual math instruction.This book, on the other hand, actually focuses on the math, explains it reasonably well, and has great sets of real example problems and practice problems of all difficulty levels, including lots of practical problems that aren't forced or contrived.It is not perfect, but it is the best I have seen.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for students
    This is a pretty good comprehensive textbook for students of all levels. There are twelve chapters in the book, plus a glossary, various helpful appendices, and an index. The book contains "A" (easy), "B" (intermediate), and "C" (challenging( problem sets for every topic covered. Also, enrichment topics are included, including "Extra," "Challenge," "Historical Note," "Application," and "Career."
