Zoo Dreams - book cover picture

The book describes what a zookeeper does after the zoo closes to the public for the day. They check on the animals and describe how they sleep, for example, the giraffes sleep standing, and fish sleep with their eyes open. Finally the zookeeper goes home to sleep and dream his zoo dreams. It's a nice, short book with muted colors and dim pictures, perfect for getting your little one to his or her own dream world.

Three Kingdoms: A Historical Novel - book cover picture

I am a normal 15 year old boy who likes china. And let me tell you somthing this book is the best book ever!! It has a huge stand point on war and art. This book is the Unabriged version and has a lot of names but you will get the main people in the story. For any of you who have played the viedo game, forget everything you know because it's alot different. I give this book 5 out of 5. The version should be bought because Robert Moss has about 200 pages of helpful quotes, pictures, and maps.

A MUST Introductory Read

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Complete Valley of the Kings: Tombs and Treasures of Egypt's Greatest Pharaohs (Complete) - book cover picture

Unfortunately, I bought and read the book AFTER visiting the valley and many tombs (in pleasant March!). While I had a rough idea of what certain tombs were about, one looked like the other (after 2 hours) and I lost interest (along with many hundreds of visitors).

The book by Reeves provides a well made introduction not only to the valley but also to ancient Egypt. Even after returning home I continued to read the book with its great photographs, maps and drawings that provide the right mix of facts, history and related stories that a non-archeology student can digest!

While in Egypt I searched extensively (in Luxor and Cairo) for one or two books that I could read to get a better understanding of ancient and modern Egypt (even if Reeves covers only the valley) and I am still happy I bought his book (although at a considerable premium at the AUC bookstore!).

If you go to Luxor BUY IT!

Great book to help teach children shapes

Book title: The Greedy Triangle (Brainy Day Books)

The Greedy Triangle (Brainy Day Books) - book cover picture

I read this book to a group of second graders and they enjoyed it. This book is a wonderful book that teaches the names of shapes, points out different ways shapes are used and different places shapes can be found. When teaching children about shapes this is a good book to read to them. It could lead to a great discussion about shapes later.It also has a good story line about being content with who you are and what you have. The Triangle changes shape several times in the story because he is unhappy and in the end he wants to go back to being a Triangle. He learned that he needed to be happy with who he his.The pictures in this book were also very fun and colorful. It is nicely illustarted. This is a great book to read with young children learning shapes and learning about growing a changing. I would recommend this book to anyone who has children or teaches children.

Diccionario español/inglés - inglés/español: Oxford Starter Spanish - book cover picture

This book is appropriately named. You're not going to come here as your *complete* source for English-Spanish translation needs, but it is a fantastic introductory reference source. In fact, it is so immaculately designed and presented that you can actually read it straight through as if it were a novel. Spanish actually seems easy to learn, just as the book cover claims.I bought this book in combination with 'Buscalo' (see my review elsewhere on these pages). Together they make a very effective package towards breaking out of the trap of beginner's Spanish.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1) - book cover picture

This is one of the most uniquely written books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. JK Rowling is wonderfully creative, not only with the overall plot, but with each individual chapter. There were some great scenes that I absolutely loved in this book...however, i don't want to give the book I will not mention specifics. All i can say is that this is one of the best books you will ever read! I still haven't figured out how it is possible to dislike this story. READ IT! LOVE IT!BUY THE SEQUELS!

Tips for Time Travelers - book cover picture

I loved "Tips For Time Travelers" because it makes perfect sense. Cochrane is pragmatic. Although he sees what we all see, he sees more and is compelled to do something about it. He has unquestionably proved that a desire to do more, to create, to make something better and the willingness to act on the desires can pay off. His vision for the future is based on the logical and practical adoption of technology. The fact that this will mean chips in our head and fiber in our veins, is a good thing. Our body is only a shell and we have been enhancing it externally since the beginning of time. Technology will make it feasable to go under the skin.As Emerson said "All things being taken, it is not instruction but provocation that I would rather take from anothers soul" and Cochrane manages to be both provocative and practical as he leads us into the future.

A close runner-up to Lee Child

Rain Storm (John Rain Thrillers (Hardcover)) - book cover picture

Having finished the latest Lee Child-Jack Reacher novel and not expecting another one to be published in the next six months, I was glad to find a new author and a new hero. John Rain is almost quite as intriguing as Jack Reacher, the hero of Lee Child's excellent series. Once I read the latest Eisler book, I had to get all three earlier works.

Rain Storm and the other three "Rain" books are must reads for those who like enigmatic heroes, interesting locales and smooth writing.

Full Circle: One Man's Journey by Air, Train, Boat and Occasionally Very Sore Feet Around the 50,000 Miles of the Pacific Rim - book cover picture

This book was a highly enjoyable read and really does the TV series justice. You get to share Palin's experiences throughout his journey in way that the TV series is unable to do. The little stories that he mentions like visiting the prison camp in Siberia, the offers from the "missie's" in China, and the references to his real life going on in the UK all create a memorable experience. Definetely my favorite out of all of his travelogues.
