5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Incredible
I was in awe when my son received the Dinosaur book for Christmas from his Grandfather. I saw this book in a Parents magazine and had to get it based on the fact that the Dino one was incredible. My 3 year old loves it! It's not a book to let him play with unless you want it destroyed. Instead, this book allows us to make some quality time for each other when we sit down and look through it. It's very informational, and as he grows older I'm sure he'll read it, but at this point the pop-ups are worth it!

5-0 out of 5 stars My son loves the book
This is a very interesting book.My 5-year old has really enjoyed the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece of Pop-up books.
A Great Book to Read With the Kid on your lap. Probably best for kids in the couple or three grades. Best for kids on your lap because pop-up books are rather fragile. Grabbing the nose of the shark and using it as a handle to lug the book around is likely to lose the nose to your shark.

5-0 out of 5 stars the original and best Curious George stories!
I dimly remember reading the "George" books years ago. When I saw this collection, I couldn't resist buying it for my daughter.
5-0 out of 5 stars Favorite for many years
We have an older version of this same book.This book was a gift to our oldest son when he was 2.13 years later, this very well read book is again our 4th sons favorite book.I'm continually amazed at how much each of our children treasured this book.A must have for any family library.

5-0 out of 5 stars Curious George: our bedtime hero!
In the first week of August we took our two children - aged 4 1/2 and 2 1/2 - to see the movie of Curious George. Both loved it. As a matter of fact my wife and I had never before enjoyed a childrens movie as much as we did this one about Curious George.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to chapter books for pre-k age
We actually picked up a four of the Magic Tree House books to give chapter books a try with our 4 year old. He absolutely is enthralled with these. We have already returned to the book store twice for a total of 8 more and I'm sure we will be going back for more.
4-0 out of 5 stars Son received as a b-day present
When he got the first boxed set for his birthday, he wasn't too enthused by it. Up to that point, him reading on his own was like trying to pull teeth. So I bribed him by saying for every book he read, I would give him a dollar.
5-0 out of 5 stars Magic Tree House (Volumes 1-4)
This was a gift for my granddaughter.My daughter writes: "Suspenseful . . . interesting.Erin can't wait for each chapter.With other books she falls asleep while I read;with these books she asks me to stop so she doesn't miss anything.We are reading no. 5 'Night of the Ninjas' and recently saw a samari suit in the museum (where Andy Warhol is showing) and there are Samari in this book.As a parent I wish there was a little more history in each book, but I think they are age appropriate."

5-0 out of 5 stars THIS IS JUST A WONDERFUL BOOK
and it leaves you feeling so darned good after you read it.The main characters, Owen, a baby hippo, and Mzee, a 130 year old Aldabra tortoise, form a remarkably close bond which continues to this day (and can be followed in their caretaker's diary on the website of Laforge Ecosystems, that lost nearly 250 employees in the December 16, 2004 tsunami, and which contributed to Owen's washing up on a coral reef in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Malindi, Kenya).

This is a wonderful story, to be enjoyed by both children and adults. The message is universal and inspirational showing that friendship has no boundries. The book is well illustrated with some incredible pictures.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product
My son just finished the Kindergarten program which we broke into approximately 15 lessons (each lesson ranging from 30 - 60 minutes) over a couple of months (it can certainly be accomplished quicker). The CD leads you through the workbook and provides all of the phonetics to assist you and your child.The lessons in the beginning took longer than the book describes but once my son got the hang of it the lessons went quicker.The flash cards with helper words are a fun game to interact with your child. The short stories and books were enjoyable for my son and helped him feel a sense of accomplishment when he earned a sticker on the progress chart.My son used the computer game on his own and it reinforced the concepts we worked on together during the lessons. This program helped introduce him to reading, sounds, comprehending the story, and he was more confident when reading and when sight words were introduced in his Kindergarten class. We both are looking forward to the 1st grade level product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent program and a great value
We got this program after trying Teach Your Child To Read in 100 EZ Lessons and found that Hooked on Phonics Kindergarten was a much better program for our daughter.Hooked on Phonics K comes with a workbook, several audio CD's, MANY easy reader books, flashcards, and a computer CD.It also comes with a sticker chart where the child can track each new book that they read.

Editorial Review

We hold this truth to be self-evident: farting makes kids laugh. Walter,an apologetic-looking dog adopted from the pound, passes gas morning,noon, and night, no matter what he eats, whether it's a 25-pound bag oflow-fart dog biscuits, cat food, or fried chicken. On the bright side,"If Uncle Irv let one slip, he just went and stood near Walter." WhenFather reaches the limit of his patience with Walter's flatulence, hedecides the pooch is once again pound-bound, despite Betty and Billy'spleading. Poor Walter knows his days are numbered and "He resolved tohold in his farts forever." That very night, two burglars break intoWalter's family's house, and (you can see where this is going) Waltergasses the burglars with a "hideous cloud" that forces them to droptheir loot and run into the clutches of the police officers, "chokingand gasping for air." The next morning Father and Mother discoverWalter has saved the day--or at least their silverware andVCR. "And so the family learned to live with Walter, the hero dog. Andthat is the end of our tail." (Or is it? Fans will be pleased todiscover the next book Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars ripping off Dav Pilkey
This book was terrible, because it is a rip-off of "Dog Breath:The Horrible Tale of Hally Tosis" by Dav Pikley, which came out in 1994!The only difference is that Walter farts while Hally has bad breath.In both stories, the terrible smell prompts families to give the dogs away, and nothing they try gets rid of the terrible odors.In both books, the burgulars break in to the family homes, and are deterred by the animals' bad smell, and the dog saves the day.
5-0 out of 5 stars Hysterically pleasing.
I bought this book to read to my family over holiday break and sat down with little kids, friends, grandparents and parents present. Not only did I have trouble reading it without snorting but my grandmother almost peed her pants laughing so hard. Acceptance is the only lesson you will get out of this book. This book was written for humor only. If you've ever owned a dog, you know most of this book is exaggeratingly true. Great for all ages. Strange, yet intriguing illustrations.

5-0 out of 5 stars My favorite book to read to my kids
It's fun to read! Great graphics, easy flow, great funny story! It's our alltime favorite. We read it all year round too. Some books they want me to read to them are not much fun for me to read even though they love it, but this one I can't resist! I would recommend it again and again, and will never get rid of this book - even when my kids are grown.

5-0 out of 5 stars A True Halloween Treat!
I have a 3 year old who is just a nut about Halloween and pumpkins.This book is just the perfect story for him and he loves it year round...so far.It's the story of a witch who grows an absolutely huge pumpkin.But the Pumpkin is so big that she cannot get it off the vine and moved.She enlists the aid of similar denizens of the night including a ghost, vampire, mummy, and a bat but none of them can get the Pumpkin moved...until they figure out it takes teamwork and cooperation to get the job done.A truly hilarious story that teachs kids about cooperation.The book is spooky, but never scary.The illustrations are colorful and bold and attractive to especially younger kids.Erica Silverman has made a delightful book that is simply too good to be read only at Halloween time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not just a seasonal read
I don't know how we got this book, but what a treasure. My daughter loves the rythym and build of this book. The characters build upon each others' attempt to pluck a witch's pumpkin from her vine. It features the witch, a vampire, a mummy and a bat. They are all non-threatening as the goal is to make and eat a pumkin pie.

Fancy Nancy loves fancy clothes and knows fancy words. When she decides to teach her family how to be fancy, the results are comical. How will her family help when she falls on her face on her big night?
5-0 out of 5 stars Completely and utterly charming!:5++
After running across Fancy Nancy while surfing amazon.com, I went to Borders Bookstore to see it in the flesh and was instantly captivated. It's a good-sized picture book with the most remarkable illustrations imaginable! There's even glitter incorporated into the book's cover. Having a "fancy nancy" granddaughter who turns five later this month, it will make the perfect gift (and if I ever need an illustrator I'm calling on Robin Priess Glasser!!).

Editorial Review

The mother sings to her sleeping baby: "I'll love you forever / I'lllove you for always / As long as I'm living / My baby you'll be." She still sings the same song when her baby has turned into a fractious 2-year-old, a slovenly 9-year-old, and then a raucous teen. So far so ordinary--but this is one persistent lady. When her son grows up and leaves home, she takes to driving across town with a ladder on the car roof, climbing through her grown son's window, and rocking the sleeping man in the same way. Then, inevitably, the day comes when she's too old and sick to hold him, and the roles are at last reversed. Each stage is illustrated by one of Sheila McGraw's comic and yet poignant pastels. (Ages 4 to 8) Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars love you forever
I found i love you forever to be a very true tale of a mothers love. Throughout the story the boy goes throught lifes many changes and phases, continuely disobeying his mothers wishes only to find himself in his mother arms everynight, as she recites the same poem expressing her unconditional love. At storys end the tables turn and a heartwarming turn of events is expressed.

3-0 out of 5 stars Sweet message, but not our favorite
This book really does have a nice message about unconditional love that a parent has for a child.For that I give it major kudos.On the other hand it is a bit sappy and maudlin for my taste.I agree that the mom showing up at the son's house is a bit strange, but it is a children's book.It's not supposed to be entirely realistic.I think (hope) that part is supposed to be more symbolic.I think the illustrations in this book are so-so and pretty uninspiring.However, it really is a sweet story and there's no harm in having this in your collection of kids books.

These books are wonderful.My son LOVES to read them and they helped build his confidence.I would highly recommend them to anyone who is trying to help their child to learn to read on their own.Worth every penny I paid for them and then some!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars The best books to help your child start to read!
I borrowed these books from the library for my daughter who's only 3 years old (soon to be 4).She loved them so much that I bought them for her when I had to return the library's copies.She can read the first 3 books on her own and asks to read them almost every night.She's very proud of herself when she's read through each book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great books - - - that I didn't think I would need.
I saw these books a few years ago and figured they were too easy, but I was running into a problem. I could not get my (then 5 year old) little girl to read books. She was reading all of her lessons with little if any trouble, but when I would try to get her to read the same words in a book she wanted nothing to do with it. I set these books in front of her and she read all 12. They didn't help her to learn to read, but they were a great help in getting her to read and to enjoy reading.

Editorial Review

This timeless Dr. Seuss classic was first published in 1960, and has been delighting readers ever since. Sam-I-am is as persistent as a telemarketer, changing as many variables as possible in the hopes of convincing the nameless skeptic that green eggs and ham are a delicacy to be savored. He tries every manner of presentation with this "nouveau cuisine"--in a house, with a mouse, in a box, with a fox, with a goat, on a boat--to no avail. Then finally, Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Children's Book
The book of green eggs and ham teaches us all a valued lesson on never judgeing a book by it's cover. Even though the main character tries to convince himself of not trying green eggs and ham, when he finally does he actually really likes it. This being a perfect example of not being prejudice.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for new arrivals
I purchased this book for a new Mexican friend, who recently moved to the U.S. for two years and speaks practically no English, while I know a smattering of Spanish. We've found it to be invaluable in helping us communicate. When it's obvious that she isn't understanding me, I can turn to the appropriate page--the kitchen, for example--and point to the picture, and she can do the same. Then we work on her pronunciation of the English word. I will probably purchase another one for myself to help me strengthen my Spanish skills. I would also consider the other language titles to correspond with those my sons are studying in school. The format is user-friendly, the color illustrations are happy, and the categories of words are vast and extremely practical--especially helpful to someone struggling to get by in a new country. My friend showed the book to her ESL teacher and was very proud when the instructor recommended the book to the rest of the class!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great picture dictionary
What makes this dictionary so great is that it is not in alphabetical order and it is based on themes.For example, there is a classroom theme on a page and all of the words that have to do with what is in a classroom.Also, I like the fact that their are numbers next to the object and then all of the words in Spanish and English are at the bottom half of the page.This allows you to cover up all of the words and quiz yourself.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book/CD set
We are so happy to have received Philadelphia Chickens as a shower gift.While our 10-month old doesn't understand the lyrics, he clearly enjoys the music, bouncing and smiling whenever he hears, "Cows, we're remarkable cows....."The songs are very enjoyable for adults as well.I've given this as a gift to 3 friends and all have loved it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great purchase!
Thanks for the great books.I bought two of the same from this owner.Both were new and in terrific condition.The CDs were perfect as well.Thanks!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars My child LOVES this!
We listen to this CD almost every day in the car. She's 2 yrs old now but we started listening to it at 1 year I think. She loves the "cow" song and used to ask for it every time we got in the car! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Lovely
A beautifully produced book, spectacular illustrations, a heartwarming story. Especially perfect for a read aloud with 3rd and 4th graders.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rabbit Run
This beautiful book, both in design and form, is an example of simplicity at it's best. A doll rabbit known as Edward Tulane to his owner (a small girl named Abilene) lives a life of privilege, he has the finest clothes, he has the love of a child, and he has a beautiful gold pocket watch of his very own. There is one problem however, though Edward knows love, for Abilene does love him so, he doesn't understand love. And because he doesn't understand love, he can not love nor can he know what it means to be loved. 5-0 out of 5 stars Truley and purley amazing
This book is not only pages with letters typed on them but a true masterpiece. As I read it I cried, jumped for joy and felt that Kate Dicammilo was an amazing person. Her books (Because of Win-Dixie, The Tale of Desperaux and The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane) all have won well deserved awards and loved by all who read that feel the story as if were true and truly heartwarming. I've read the story countless times and each time I feel that the world is a wondrous place. Even though Edward is a china rabbit who lives, I didn't feel that it was cartoony and amusing. I felt that it was a true story and not a book that makes you laugh at how cartony it is. You MUST read this book if you are not just a kid who thinks a book is only pages and print. Becasue it's not. I have proof; The Miraculous Story of Edward Tulane.Thanks for reading.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this book
I thought this book was great - it was really colorful. The overall feel reminded me of the book "Now I Know the Ten Commandments". I recommend it to anyone.

5-0 out of 5 stars this story was written by a woman, not Watty Piper
This story was originally written as "The Pony Engine" by Mabel C. Bragg. The Book "Little Engine That Could" is merely "RETOLD" by Watty Piper. The story was written by a woman who NEVER gets credited for it--Mabel C. Bragg. It's a charming, timeless story and an American Children's literature classic not to be missed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
I read this book to my daughter and son and they loved it.It is my daughter's favorite book.This author is very created in taking you into a different world.Very science fiction.

5-0 out of 5 stars A classic that transcends time
This was one of my favorite books when I was growing up. Now that I am a mother, I am thrilled to be able to share this very same story with my own daughter and watch her eyes light up with excitement every time we read it together. My daughter absolutely loves all the colorful, interesting illustrations throughout the book that accompany the equally colorful story. The little imp Max appeals to her "devilish" side, and she laughs with glee as max dons his wolf suit and chases after the dog or as he swings from the vines and marches under the moonlight with the "wild things". This is a book that she really enjoys taking an active part in. How cute it is when she pretends to be one of the wild things...roaring her own little roar and showing her "terrible claws" right along with the story. It is such a wonderful message, too. Max takes an imaginary trip to "Where the Wild Things Are" after being sent to bed without his supper, but even though he becomes King of All Wild Things, he learns that there's nothing more comforting in life than being where he is loved no matter what. And when he "returns" to his room and finds his supper waiting for him, he knows he is truly loved. Such a beautiful story related in a way that both children and adults can relate to.

5-0 out of 5 stars All-time favorite
If my family were to be stranded on a desert island with only 1 picture book, I'd choose this one. It was my favorite when I was a kid, and is now my daughters' favorites. Why? Well, the illustrations, to begin with. Wonderfully detailed and funny, my kids spend several minutes looking over each. My favorite part is the sequence of Max's room turning into a forest.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hooray for correct punctuation!
As a teacher and mother of 7-year-old twins, I found this book right on target!I have a daily calendar of "Eats, Shoots and Leaves" quips, and the girls are happy to be able to get an age-specific taste of why Mommy is a punctuation stickler.They have read through the book several times, and they have each taken time to show me their favorite pages, explaining to me why the comma made such a difference.
2-0 out of 5 stars Parents/grammar lovers should expect more
I had fun reading this book with my kids. Many of the examples were well chosen, and the pictures were always fun, and sometimes pretty clever. (Can you guess how they illustrated I've finally decided to cheer up, everybody!? I couldn't have.) But as an educational experience, the book ranges from unhelpful to misleading or false. The grammar lovers/parents that it targets should expect more.
4-0 out of 5 stars Very funny for kids of all ages
My 9 year old thinks this book is hysterical. It would have been better if there were more to it for the price, but it's still worth buying! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars So many good memories.
My grandmother bought this book for me when I was six years old, and I spent countless hours laughing at the poetry and looking at the illustrations. A wonderful book, definitely; very humorous, a great gift for any child. :) I cannot pick my favorite poem from this book, they are all so hilarious; the time spent reading these stories with my mother, grandparents, or friends when I was a child, is priceless.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another blast from the past for me...
I absolutely adore these drawings and poems - I have been reading and giggling and remembering my own childhood when I giggled and laughed at them... My kids both laughed and laughed when I read them to them - and my 18 year old daughter had to show them all to her friends. This is a just an adorable book and well worth the money for the kid at heart or by age!

4-0 out of 5 stars Book Review for a Light in th Attic
Hi, my name is Dusty McGruder and I read the book A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein.This book is a book of poetry so there is not really a main plot, setting, conflict, or resolution.However, there are sometimes plots, settings, conflicts, and resolutions for each individual poem.
