Secrets of the Baby Whisperer: How to Calm, Connect, and Communicate with Your Baby - book cover picture

I thought this book was extremely helpful and comforting as a first-time mom. I have to say I got a little indignant reading Brandon's Mom's write up about the "risks associated with formula-feeding." Not everyone can breastfeed for a variety of reasons (both personal and medical--e.g., women with breast cancer), and formula is a perfectly safe and viable alternative in which infants are provided with the RDA they need. My baby got both and is thriving, and I was exclusively formula-fed and am none the worse for it. I thought it was great that Tracy Hogg gave such an unbiased perspective on both types of feeding.
Oh-and by the way, speaking as someone with a Ph.D. in clinical child psychology, the research is definitely mixed regarding breastfed babies having higher IQ's.

Having raised both a teenage son and daughter, I found myself referencing this book quite often. It helped at many different stages of their growing years. It gave me insite into what their thought process was...which enable me to alter my approach. It is difficult for a parent to understand what is on a teenagers'mind when your utmost concern is for their safety. I highly suggest this book...and make sure you keep it on hand ...you will be surprised how often you pick up. STILL SURVIVING

Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl - book cover picture

I don`t want to explain what this book is about like all the other reviews do. I wanna say that this is truly the most inspiring, amazing, depressing, stories ever told. This book was so amazing you just have to block everything out of your mind and focus on it. And then as you get to the last line "I keep on trying to find a way of becoming what I would so like to be if...there weren`t any other people in the world.", you`re gonna burst out in tears. It makes you wonder. Did she know this would be the last thing she would write? No. She didn`t. When you realize that, you realize just how amazing Anne really was. She wrote from her heart everyday without hesitation. She said everything that had to be said, without thinking twice about it. Then when you close the book for the last time you say to yourself, "How come this girl isn`t alive? How come this amazing girl suffered so much? How come it was all because of hate?" Read this book. It`ll make a difference.

The Cozy Book - book cover picture

A must for reading out loud with your favorite toddler. One of my all-time favorite children's books, now enjoying it with my 3-year old niece. Delightful, playful and textual rhymes and illustrations that conjure up memories for parents/grandparents. And that provide opportunity to share personal favorite cozy things and people and feelings! Ann Hoberman's other title - A House is a A House for Me - will also delight you and yours.

Star Wars: Tales from Mos Eisley Cantina (Star Wars (Random House Paperback)) - book cover picture

Yes, it's Star Wars and yes, all the stories were good. But what I really loved was the idea of having so many different people writing so many different stories but having all of them have at least one sequnce in common (i.e. Ben and Luke's entering of the cantina and/or Ben's cutting down of the drunkards and/or Han blasting Greedo) putting them as side comments in the stories, then having the stories themselves fold over one another. I just thought this was a very excellent idea and I would love to see more good movies or books try it with their characters. I hope the are able to do something like this for Phantom Menace (they could probably do a TALES FROM MOS ESPA thing).

An Urban Pastoral Noir


Book title: Revolutionary Road
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Revolutionary Road - book cover picture

Written in 1961, this book is a realistic disection of a contemporary urban marriage in contemporary urban America. Biology states that disection kills, but this marriage was moribund from the onset. Every literary device is used, some rather artlessly disguised, complete with raving but soothsaying madman. Grippingly interesting , involving and realistic. In the end, no "deus ex machina" appears to save this doomed couple. Excellent read.

PERFECT THREE-WAY UNION: HUSBAND, WIFE, AUTHOR.

Vera (Mrs. Vladimir Nabokov) - book cover picture

In a vein not unsimilar to Brenda Maddox's biography of Nora Joyce a decade ago, Stacy Schiff compassionately and vividly weaves together the beautiful tapestry of Vladimir and Vera Nabokov. For those who thought the master's works can speak for themselves, they may want to think again. This lucid, brilliant book brings together the complex author's life, marriage, loves, ideals, frustrations, and, ultimately, genius as biographies rarely do. At the same time, Vera is no shrinking violet either and one wonders about what would have become of the author had she not been a tad forward about meeting him in the first place; certainly the history of 20th century literature would have suffered by it. My wish is that Ms Schiff continue in this vein...perhaps a different view of Frieda Lawrence or the long-suffering Mrs Dickens? Like this book, they will most likely be indispensable.

A Ring of Endless Light (Austin Family) - book cover picture

I've had this on my shelf probably since I was the intended audience: there are pages falling out and the cover is creased. A story about a young woman on the edges of romance, of self-discovery, having to deal with her grandfather's dying, her parents becoming *people* instead of just her parents, and her changing relationships all around. The poetry is really good, the imagery excellent; I can feel the atmosphere she describes and fall into the scenes easily. I reread this book at least once a year - keep it on your bookshelf for yourself as well as any passing youngsters of appropriate age/reading level.

Counting Coup : A True Story of Basketball and Honor on the Little Big Horn - book cover picture

No political correctness here, no trumpeting idealism, no hard-breathing expose of the flaws of the reservation Indians or the whites who live around and among them. Larry Colton gives us only reality, a reality that condemns racism on both sides but shows the hurdles that the residents of Hardin put in front of themselves. His real-life characters don't do what any of his readers might expect them to do or want them to do; they do what they do. In Sharon and her girls basketball team's quest for the Montana state title, Larry Colton finds and reports all the elements of high drama: tragedy, betrayal, passion, defeat and hope. And, he finds them in a world and a people unknown to almost all of us. You'll hang onto your seat waiting for the outcome of the basketball games, but far more you'll hang on waiting to see how the members of his cast succeed or fail in their lives.
