Le Petit Prince (French Language Edition) - book cover picture

I read this book a year ago with my French 4 Advanced Placement class. It is still sitting on the head of my bed, because I have read it multiple times and refer to it often. I have never been more inspired, nor more changed, by any one novel. The lessons that are meant to help children grow into admirable adults can teach us adults so much more. I looked at everything differently once I finished reading this book. I learned so many invaluable lessons that I will carry with me forever. I am absolutely sure that I will read this to my children someday. The lessons I learned, from not judging someone by what they look like to getting my priorities straight, have forever changed the way I treat people and the way I live. I believe I am more mature now because of the impact this book had on me.

One more positive opinion

And Then There Were None - book cover picture

I think I speak for everyone when I say that is one of the most enthralling and addictive novels in recent memory. I read through feverishly, devouring the book in a single day, only to be shocked by one of the most unpredictable conclusions ever dedicated to paper. Afterwards, I slapped myself over the forehead and exclaimed "Of course!" You'll see what I mean... It's a classic feeling.If anyone else could recommend anymore of Ms. Christie's novels which contain the same integrity and suspence as this one, please mail me at "chuck@c-gate.net".

Your teacher will thank you for the tip about Imani


Book title: Imani All Mine
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Imani All Mine - book cover picture

Tell your teacher about Imani-- believe me, he or she will thank you. My college students loved Imani: the whites were touched, fascinated, the black students said it was real; but beyond that, not since THE CATCHER IN THE RYE has there been so moving a story about an adolescent facing a spiritual wasteland. Parallels Cornel West's comments on nihilism in The Future of the Race. You're no more expected to blindly approve of everything Tasha does than you are of Holden Caulfield, but both are unforgettable. Paired well with THE GRAPES OF WRATH, another novel of humanization that's a great read. That you have to put Porter in the same company as Salinger and Steinbeck is the highest praise.

The Happiest Baby on the Block : The New Way to Calm Crying and Help Your Newborn Baby Sleep Longer - book cover picture

Unlike other reviewers, we didn't wait till our baby was difficult till we bought the book, we got it before birth. Either we have the easiest baby on earth, or this stuff really works. When they handed the baby to me after he delivered, he was screaming his head off. I swung and shushed him, and him immediately quieted down.Using the techniques in this book, if our baby isn't hungry, some combination of the 5 s's always calm him. Only occasionally, when he is out of control does it take all 5, but it always works. Our baby has NEVER cried for more than a few minutes, thanks to this book.We shared the book with our pediatrician, who hadn't heard of it, and he totally endorsed the techniques. If you are expecting a baby, you would be crazy not to buy this book!!!!

I bought this book for my husband (his first natural baby) and my 13 year old son. It is very informational and the pictures are amazing. I would recommend this book to every women and her family. The content of the book represents the natural like never seen before. I could actually see and relate picture by picture of the life that is growing inside me. Wonderful, educational and most phenomenal!

The Cookies of Your Dreams

Sweet Maria's Italian Cookie Tray : A Cookbook - book cover picture

This is probably the best and most frequently used cookie cookbook in my collection. The recipes are authentic Italian style cookies similar to what you would find in a good Italian bakery or coming out of grandma's oven. Maria gives interesting little anecdotes with almost every cookie recipe. I have tried almost every cookie in the book and have not been disappointed yet. With the holidays approaching, this is definitely a cookbook worth owning.

Amazing, suspense, all attention!!

I Am the cheese - book cover picture

This book I am the Cheese, by Robert Cromier is one of the best books I have ever read. It was on a list on my english honors class out of 200 books and I chose this one because the name sounded funny. But as I read the book the use of wording by the author made me barely put this book down. It captivated my interest totally, and I finished reading the whole book in 2 days flat. At first I was confused but as the book reared towards the end, all the pieces of the puzzle came together and I was totally amazed. At the end when Paul/Adam says "I know, of course, who I am, who I will always be, I am the cheese." It was so deep it made me cry! The book was emotional at times, suspensful at others and over all I was literally amazed by it. I give Robert Cromier so much credit for this book, he is an amazing author! I thank him for writing this book it was awesome!

Lost Triumph: Lee's Real Plan at Gettysburg--And Why It Failed - book cover picture

As a reader of historians, John Keegan and Rick Atkinson, I was keen to see why this work held their interest. I found a brilliant etude to the symphony that is the Civil War. Dr. Carhart has found a strategy of Robert E. Lee missed in other works on the great battle of Gettysburg - the punch of cavalry to the rear of the Federals. His writing style serious but immensely readable, the author sets the stage and then places us at a gallop alongside J.E.B. Stuart as he is forced to confront a wild and strangely fatalistic Union defender named Custer.

Kick Me : Adventures in Adolescence - book cover picture

I bought this book awhile ago, but only just now worked my way around to it -- as a dedicated fan of Mr. Feig's show, "Freaks and Geeks" (my friends and I watched it religiously every week), which was so good it left me truly sad when it got yanked off the air (only the good die young!), I think subconsciously I was saving the book for a rainy day. And man did it deliver. Really, this book made me very happy. Feig's willingness to share all his most intimate foibles (a potential first kiss derailed by a long night of vomiting [hers] in unfortunate combination with a sharp fear of germs [his]) and surreally sad moments (Feig's exposure as a teenaged cross-dresser after his mother gets into a car accident in front of their house and he runs out into the street, pumps and pearls clacking, for the whole neighborhood to see) displays a rare generosity with painful truths, not to mention a keen sense of humor and self.

The Culture of Fear : Why Americans Are Afraid of the Wrong Things - book cover picture

I first found out about Barry Glassner's book by watching Michael Moore's excellent documentary Bowling for Columbine. After reading the book I found that Moore's entire thesis on what is wrong with America's fear-driven consumer culture needs this book to back it up. The movie is wonderful and raises very important issues. You should definitely watch it if you have not. This book takes a long, hard look at those issues and the sociological causes and effects of fear in American society. Glassner carefully covers unreasonable fears by examining important data and statistics. This book is especially important in the post-9/11 era we are currently living in. This book should be read by those overwhelmed by the coverage of violent crime on the daily news and especially those living in fear of their neighbors. Culture of Fear is an important book for our times.
