Parents Beware; Your Child Will Want This Book Over & Over

Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb - book cover picture

I bought this book for my 22 month old god-daughter, a girl who already has a library full of books. This is the one she wants to hear, over and over again. The rhyming is mesmerizing and she helps me pat on the book as it says "One hand, two hands, druming on a drum; dum, ditty, dum, ditty, dum, dum dum." She's at the stage where she's adding to her vocabulary daily, and, thanks to this book, she now says apple. She has a "play ring" that she insists on wearing when we read the book, especially when we get to the pages that read "rings on fingers, rings on thumb." When I first got the book, I was afraid she wouldn't like it, because it isn't really a story. But she loves it. I recommend it whole heartedly.

F. Scott Fitzgerald: The Great Gatsby (The Cambridge Edition of the Works of F. Scott Fitzgerald) - book cover picture

I recently read the book "The Great Gatsby". The book is the all-american novel for everyone. The Great Gatsby should not sit on a book shelf. The book is the most esquisit book I have read to date. The book deals with all aspects of love and the trials of life. "The Great Gatsby" Is a text that a person can read a chapter and then leave it laying there for more than a day. Since the author is so descriptive, it made me feel like I was in the story. I felt like I was a part of thier lifes.I could refer back to the text and compare my life with thier life. This book is inspirational to all people including young new writers. The book has to be one of the best books out there. I reconmend this book to everybody.

Golden Apples of the Sun and Other Stories - book cover picture

Ray Bradbury is one of the few writers I have read who has been able to successfully capture or draw out emotions every time, whether it be sadness, love, excitement, fear, the list goes on... He has mastered what it takes to write a short story that will affect the reader or make them think, not only in this book, but in all other collections of his I have read. His writing style should be one that all writers of any caliber strive to achieve.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - book cover picture

Ken Kesey was ever a master of language and expressed ideas, but 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' takes his writing into a new dimension. The novel inextricably links evil to society, demonstrating the power it wields and how we are forced to reconcile with it to survive. 'Kesey' focuses on the occupants of a mental hospital - a microcosm of the outside world - and whilst reading about the redemption of the in-mates after years of mental torture and abuse the reader is forced to assess how much society controls his own life, and more specifically, whether he has any choice in it. The imagery is beautiful and the moods and emotions of the in-mates are consigned to writing in an easy mannor which would shame most of today's writers. Easy to read - impossible to put down. Prepare to be enlightened!

If You Want to Walk on Water, You've Got to Get Out of the Boat - book cover picture

Ortberg's book is an excellent challenge to evaluate your way of thinking and to get out of your comfort zone and be mightily used of God.Among the many excellent points Ortberg mentions are:1. What happens when God works in a person's life.
2. Our gifts will either be used or unused for God's glory.
3. Take your calling from God seriously and accept your limitations.
4. Appreciate the gifts God has given you, utilize them for His glory, and refuse to compare yourself with others.
5. Fear may be the biggest reason we fail to trust and obey God.
6. Be willing to wait on God and His timing and methods.
7. Suggestions for staying focused on Jesus.
8. Let God be larger than the people around you.Again, these are just a few of the many points mentioned in the book. An excellent read and supplement to the Bible. Highly recommended!

If your grading scale went to 50, it wouldn't be high enough to accurately review this book. I read it when I was young. I was about 8. I read it again when I was 14. If I could find it locally, I'd read it again right now, and I'm 42. We're ordering a copy for my 15 year old son (and I would NEVER borrow it!!) My thanks to Ms. George, the time it took you to write My Side of the Mountain made a reader of me

Commodore Hornblower (Hornblower, 9) - book cover picture

Some stories are brilliant (Ayn Rand "The Fountainhead") and some are important to read (Victor Hugo "Notre Dame de Paris"), but none are more pleasurable and inspiring than this one -- C.S. Forester's masterpiece of war and courage, Commodore Hornblower. It's approximately halfway in the complete Hornblower saga of 10 stories, tracing his career from midshipman to admiral, but Commodore Hornblower was written when the character was fully alive to the author and it inspired me beyond anything else I've ever read. If you're interested in the problem of leadership, it is essential reading.

A Yellow Raft in Blue Water: A Novel - book cover picture

Pop fiction at its best. I normally wouldn't have picked this book up--I tend to read "classic" literature as opposed to contemporary or pop lit--but this was recommended highly by a friend. Dorris, like Wally Lamb, has an uncanny feel for women at different stages of their lives; Rayona, Christine, and Ida all feel terribly real. They take their bumps and bruises, and we observe this with the same schadenfreude with which we listen to our own friends' adventures. Beautifully written, with a decent amount of plot twist, it's time well spent. I'll read more by Dorris.

More: The Politics of Economic Growth in Postwar America - book cover picture

This book is a bit deceptive--it delivered far more than I expected. It treats the complicated economic developments of the past half-century in a clear and accessible fashion. But it also told me a surprising amount about the politics and presidents of the postwar era. I particularly liked the way it forced me to view Nixon, Reagan, and Clinton in a new light. Indeed, this book offers a new and illuminating interpretation of the entire postwar period.

The Eleventh Hour (Picture Puffin S.) - book cover picture

Being a primary teacher, I thought this book would be too difficult for my students. But in reality they LOVED it! Every day at Shared Reading time, they begged to hear it again and again. My gifted students would study the illustrations and clues over and over again. They would work tirelessly to figure out the hidden codes and messages. This book lasted an entire semester in discussions in our classroom. I highly recommend it for many reasons, not only the ones I listed above, but the detailed elaborate illustrations and rhyming rich colorful language are priceless! Whether you are a parent of children or a teacher of children, every child should experience the Eleventh Hour!
