Brown Paper School book: My Backyard History Book (Brown Paper School) - book cover picture

I have worked in education and history museums for 20 years, and I have yet to find a more complete and entertaining guide for "doing" local history. Weitzman has compiled activities and ideas that teach all aspects of local and family history: using the objects, photographs, places and people that would otherwise be ignored as students go about their daily lives. The text is readable at the middle school level, yet adults will also find it fresh and interesting. Recommended activities require minimal materials and costs, and can be done in the classroom or at home. I use this book in planning all my classes. This book can also be used in planning multi-generational activities for schools or senior centers.

Introduction to the world of Vampires

Interview with the Vampire : Anniversary edition (The vampire chronicles) - book cover picture

Brilliant work introducing us to the world of the Vampire: sensuous, ambitious, and eager for knowledge of the origin. Louis' quest for knowledge takes him away from his controlling mentor, Lestat, and New Orleans into the realm of the Old World vampires like Armand. Anne Rice gives each of her vampires an almost human character and personality, proving that even the living dead can be more human than human. Absolutely a must read.

A Man Named Dave: A Story of Triumph and Forgiveness - book cover picture

ok well im actually 2/3 thru the first book, "a child called 'it'" but i felt i had to express how much i liked the book.. plus i needed a break! ive been reading it nonstop thru my last two lessons in school (Science and German. bleh.) and on my way home. i honestly couldnt put it down!!.. Im not usually one to become so fixated on a book, and im only 2/3 thru the it, as i put before, but its become my favourite since i was on the very first chapter!my second favourite book is 'junk' (i forget the author now) but it also includes a boy named David (nicknamed 'Tar')who gets abused which i think is quite weirdy cuz the two main characters have the same name.. er, anyways, i totally loved this book!

Another spledid masterpiece


Book title: Vittorio, the Vampire
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Vittorio, the Vampire - book cover picture

In Vittorio the Vampire, Anne Rice once again shows her amazing ability to carry a story line. This book, like her many others, is a total page turner. Her writing always 'takes me there' to the point that I can almost believe it's true. In this book, however, the character is very different, yet not so different, from the other heroes and heroines of her novels. The book takes place in mainly in Italy and ecompasses a new twist on vampiric humor and character. The ruby grail was a most interesting, yet new, twist on the social structure and appearance of a coven. Overall I loved the book and look forward to another.

Queen's Own Fool : A Novel of Mary Queen of Scots - book cover picture

I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was gripping throughout the entire story and it wa s hard to put down. I enjoyed the fact that it took romance, adventure, history, and mystery and braided them into a beautiful story. I thought Nicola, La Jardiniere, was a great character and truly had everyone's heart. Her loyalty towards the queen and the queen herself add to the story. I love this book! It is definetly on my top ten list!

Another wonderfully observed delight from Elinor Lipman


Book title: The Ladies' Man
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Ladies' Man - book cover picture

What I've loved about Elinor Lipman's work is that her stories are so breezy, engaging and entertaining, you almost don't realize just how well-written they happen to be. Lipman has an incredibly keen ear for dialogue and a keen eye for social interactions. She finds gems of humor and poignance in the recognizable-- yet her well-drawn characters defy sterotype in their complexities. To say this is a book about three older single sisters who live together would be a huge disservice to the relatable, always interesting and seriously involving tale she once again weaves. Like candy that happens to be good for you, this book was a satisfying delight.

Journeys With Elijah : Eight Tales of the Prophet

Journeys with Elijah: Eight Tales of the Prophet - book cover picture

Stories of the ancient prophet Elijah appear in cultures and traditions from Curacao to China to Eastern Europe, following the flight of Jews throughout history. Eight of these tales have been gathered and embellished in this enchanting book by Barbara Diamond Goldin. Master illustrator Jerry Pinkey's stunning and lovely watercolors vividly capture the details of the times, places, and people visited by the prophet. Disguised as a worn traveler and, oftentimes beggar, Elijah brings hope to those in need, and wisdom and friendship to those judged worthy. The possibility that at anytime we can be visited by this wise and generous prophet should encourage us all to treat each person we meet with careful consideration and kindness, as if they are Elijah himself.

Fig Pudding


Book title: Fig Pudding
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Fig Pudding - book cover picture

The book Fig Pudding is all about an eleven year old boy named Clifford Allyn Abernathy the third; who is the oldest of six kids. He narrates many short stories about his family, and the happy, sad, and tough times that they have. Being the oldest has some disadvantages says Clifford like having to be almost perfect, getting blamed if your little brother, or sister gets into trouble when you watch them. Some advantages for Cliff are not having to wear a baseball glove; he doesn't have any big brother or big sister to boss him around; he gets to stay up late, and he gets to listen to all the grown-up stuff. To me Fig Pudding was a great story because there is always something happening at the Abernathy house that makes you want to laugh or cry. I recommend Fig Pudding to anyone who doesn't have a happening life.

Its not just another picture book


Book title: Starry Messenger (1997 Caldecott Honor Book)

Starry Messenger (1997 Caldecott Honor Book) - book cover picture

In this amusing and insightful book, Peter Sis has attracted more then one audience. Starry Messenger (a Caldecott Honor book) tells the story of Galileo Galilei and some of his accomplishments. The actual story is interesting, but the illustrations are amazing! His pictures are detailed and
intricate, including every possible detail the mind can imagine. On the page introducing Galileo, perhaps fifty babies wrapped in blankets are pictured. On each blanket is their future occupation. You see a baker, a priest, a farmer, a knight, and a barrelmaker among many others. But Galileo is one that stands out. His blanket is dark blue and covered with
white stars, foreshadowing his remarkable life. The Starry Messenger is a picture book, but don't let that label fool you. Most adults will find the facts about Galileo written in the margins interesting, and as I have, the pictures astounding. Words cannot do this book justice, its marvelous work of art!

Captain Corelli's Mandolin (BBC Radio Collection) - book cover picture

One of the few books I have read more than once, it captures the essence of the human spirit, the timelessness of true love, and the inescapable irony of the human condition. The rich history of this small Greek island caught in the middle of the chaos of war unfolds impartially through the eyes of each character. Capt. Corelli and Pelagia will dance off the pages and into your heart in this comedic, tragic, romantic, unforgettable tale.
