Spot Goes to School (Picture Puffins) - book cover picture

Spot discovers that school is fun and interesting in this flap book by Eric Hill. After a warm greeting by his teacher and classmates, Spot hides (under one of the flaps found on every page) when it's time to sing a song. "I can't sing," he says. There is no resolution to this (maybe some pages were torn out of my copy?), but Spot soon finds plenty to do as the disjointed plot reveals Spot's fun activities at school. These include finding dress-up clothes in a small playhouse, spelling the word "DOG" with blocks, story time by the teacher, playing teeter-totter (Spot is cleverly hidden under a flap that is part of a tree), and painting paw prints. When his mom picks him up and asks, "How was school, Spot?" he answers with a resounding "Great!" Twenty-two brightly colored pages showing Spot enjoying school after some initial uncertainty.

A feeling for the northern seas

Book title: The Baltic and North Seas (Seas in History)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Baltic and North Seas (Seas in History) - book cover picture

Written by two well-known historians of the Baltic/ Scandinavian region, this book breaks ground in the way it presents the history of the two major seas of Northern Europe: we get away from a "names-dates-events" approach to a more holistic view of the term "history" with repsect to the Baltic and North Seas. It is not only people and institutions who figure in this book, but the seas themselves, beginning from their formation. The book examines such questions as how the presence of these seas influenced life around them, ranging from trade and the technology of sailing to the use of the shoreline for livelihood and recreation.Parts of this book 'feel' very visual in nature, though there are rather few (but well chosen) illustrations. Indeed, one could envision a six-part television series based on this book -- the sort of thing the BBC or Discovery or History Channel do well.Too bad about the price -- bring out a paperback edition!

A book worthy of "classic"

Book title: Ordinary Princess

Ordinary Princess - book cover picture

I first found this book in the library when I was in the third grade. I read it and loved it. It was my favorite book for years after that. I was so disappointed when I discovered that this book was out of print. It is one of the few books that are truely worthy of the title "classic". Once you read this book, you'll remember it forever. I think that is really what a classic is, not a book that controversial or written a long time ago, but a book that stays with you for the rest of your life. And for me, this book is truely is a classic.

I love the brilliant illustrations

Ribbit, Ribbit (Puffy Board Books) - book cover picture

The frogs are well-illustrated and brilliantly colored. The backwards counting practice is great for learning numbers (instead of the typical everything gets added to kind of counting practice).
It's a neat idea and introduces words kids don't get a lot of (speckled, for instance, and delicious). I also like how the frogs are actually all there in the end with just their little bubble eyes poking up out of the pool.
Great idea, masterfully done. Pretty to look at and fun to hold. My children seem to have to squish the cover a bit before we get on with the reading.

Michael Beck Makes it Happen

The Runaway Jury (John Grishham) - book cover picture

I thought I would like Grisham's work and I certainly do. But the reader, Michael Beck gave such a performance that it is HIS work that has made me an avid purchaser of Grisham's books on audio. Beck's top ability to deliver a unique voice for each character and maintain that voice throughout the performance is second to none. He brings life and meaning to each character and each scene. It gives more meaning to the story to be able to place yourself within the setting, within the lives of the characters and Michael Beck does it and does it very, very well. Beck's performance proved to me that not everyone can be an audiobook reader.

An overview of Thomas and Thomism.

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Saint Thomas Aquinas: The Dumb Ox - book cover picture

Mr. Chesterton wrote a charming overview of the Dumb Ox, one of the smarterst men ever! This book is more like several postcard close-ups than a panaorama of the life of Aquinas. It inclused several humorous anecdotes of Aquinas'a life, and two of his greatest experiences in life. The first what when he was in deep mediations and was given the Solomon Question--"I will give you a blank check, what do you want?" How did he answer this question? The second event centers around Aquinas's writing of the Summa Theologica, wher he caimed to have a vision from God that made everything that he had ever written look like straw. Some he saw ground his mind to a standstill.I felt a kinship to Aquinas, a great man with a great mind who could have been anything and everything, but chose to be a monk. Eventually the Dumb Ox's bellow was a shout heard round the world!

A great book!

Book title: The Little Prince
Rating: 5/5

The Little Prince - book cover picture

I first read The Little Prince my freshman year in high school and I thought it was just plain confusing. Then, later that year, my school chose The Little Prince for the spring play. I tried out and got the part of the prince. This is when I really and truly understood the story. I then reread the book and it was absolutely fantastic. So for all of you who read it once and thought it was confusing, READ IT AGAIN! IT'S A GOOD BOOK!

Binding: Paperback
Witches' Children: A Story of Salem - book cover picture

This is an excellent book. It tells the story so well, you feel like you are right there. This is a very interesting part of history for me, and this book makes it exciting to read about. You get drawn in by the excellent story telling. The horror the condemned witches felt. You also see the struggle in the main characters mind. To go along with the afflicted girls, or to tell the truth and possibly be condemned herself. This is a deffinate "don't miss".

Fascinating story of a family's personal and legal struggles

Book title: Damages: One Family's Legal Struggles in the World of Medicine

Binding: Paperback
Damages: One Family's Legal Struggles in the World of Medicine - book cover picture

This true story grabbed me immediately. Barry Werth does a very good job of bringing to light the many sides of what initially appears to be a straightforward case. Without playing favorites, he manages to get the reader to alternately feel for one side, then the other. Despite the legal and medical jargon found throughout the book, I never felt lost or became bored. Reading this puts both the legal and medical systems in a new light.
