4-0 out of 5 stars A simgeon of pigeon
I didn't realize when I bought this book it is a stiff paged book for small children. But as usual the pigeon brings a smile to your face!

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a BOARD BOOK - you know the kind with pages thick and durable enough for your toddler to chew
I mention that this is a board book because so many parents seem dissapointed by how few pages it contains.
4-0 out of 5 stars Another smigeon of Pigeon!
Mo Willems delights again! Personnally a big fan of Pigeon, in particular the hot dog episode, I awaited "The Pigeon has feelings too!" with eagerness. And even though it is only a 5 or 10 page board book, with very little action; it's still a great book. The illustrations make it. Though I would certainly reccommend "The Pigeon finds a hot dog!" or "Don't let the Pigeon drive the bus!" first, this little book is worth checking out if you have very young children in the family. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Esperanza Rising
Esperanza Rising was a pretty good book.This book was basically about a Mexican girl who use to be rich but became poor.They lived on a huge ranch and owned a grape orchard. Sadly the night before her birthday Esperanza's father dies. After her father dies, her evil uncle takes over the ranch, and her and her mother become servants. The only way they could still live in their house was if her mother was to marry her brother inlaw. Esperanza's mother new that if she married him they wouldn't live a very good life. So now that they became servants they had to sneak from the ranch . They get in the back of a wagon and begin their journey to their new home. When they get there they go to their very small cabin. Esperanza and her mother had to work very hard and momma gets sick. Well I think that I am going to stop there so that I wont give any thing away. I do recommend this book though, you will enjoy it.

5-0 out of 5 stars It made me cry!
It was such a great book!I could read it over again and again!I can't even imagine someone ever saying that they hated this book.I couldn't stop reading when I started the book.Sometimes I even read it when my Mom was talking to me.This book is very sad and exciting.It made it worth spending most of my time reading it!I would tell every one of my friends about this book and how I think they sould read it.If I was stranded on a deserted island and i could bring any two books in the whole world.I would choose Espeanza Rising and A Judy Blume book!If you like sad,exciting,and beautifuly written books, then this is the one for you!

4-0 out of 5 stars Some unnecessarily graphic pics
I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 because of the graphic drawings of a girl inserting a tampon.What young girl needs to see this at 9 or 10?I personally feel that they should use pads until they get the hang of menstruation anyway, then they can buy a box of tampons and read the instructions inside.There is no need to shock them with such graphic pics.The book is wonderful otherwise.I wish I could just remove those pages, but they encompass the whole menstruation topic, so it would really disrupt the book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Care and Keeping of You
I've got to say, this book has some great information about keeping clean and eating healthy, however, I strongly recomend this book for girls under the age of 11. The period information in this book doesn't really help, and with half my friends, (including me) already have gotten their period by age 11 and 12, this book gives you almost no information. The other stuff is common sense. We know how to brush our teeth and brush our hair! Unless you're 9 or 10 (maybe 11?) don't bother with this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very impressed.
My 9 year old daughter & I read this together last week.It is a fabulous book for the "tween" years.It gives detailed information about puberty and caring for your body(how to measure for a bra, insert a tampon, hair care, body changes, etc.) but doesn't get into discussing sex.Though we've talked about sex, I'm glad she has a "reference" book about her body that tells her what she needs to know at this young age.I was so impressed with this book, that I have recommended it to many of my friends with 9-10 year old daughters.The entire section on body image is excellent.They discuss anorexia and bulimia in a factual manner, stressing to girls that these aren't healthy choices.I didn't realize that my daughter had heard of these terms until we read this together.I wasn't sure it was the right time to get into this, but I was wrong.This book is fabulous for starting or extending conversations about the body & puberty. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Books
All the Harry Potter books are magical, and these just complete the enchantment. They are a must have for any fan of the Harry Potter series. Young or old, anyone will enjoy them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Fun
Enjoyable quick reads that supplement Harry Potter's world and give a nice fix while waiting for the next novel to come out. The proceeds from the sale of these books also goes to charity. I've always wanted to know more about the history, geography and culture of the magical, non-muggle world than the Harry Potter novels tell us and books like these fill us in very nicely!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great books for Harry Potter fans!
I enjoyed reading these 2 little books! They were very interesting! In 'Quiditch Through the Ages' it had a wonderful history of the magical sport! It made you feel like it had really happened, and that's what great books are supposed to do! The 'Magical Beasts and Where to Find Them' was inspiring, it put your imagination to work!

Editorial Review

A frustrated grade school artist, Vashti sits slumped over her blank piece of paper at the end of art class. "I just CAN'T draw!" she tells her teacher. Her teacher first uses wit, then subtle yet clever encouragement to inspire her student to go beyond her insecurities and become, in the words of a younger boy who "can’t" draw either, "a really great artist."Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars powerful concept in a simple presentation
As a special education teacher I took a different message from the one intended by the author: when we honor what children CAN do, and give them the time/opportunity to demonstrate how far they can take that...they may surprise us, and even surprise themselves.I think it is particularly telling that the author/illustrator dedicated this book to his 7th grade /math/ teacher...clearly a teacher who could challenge/inspire/motivate his students to excell, even if that excelling was to be demonstrated in an area other than his own.
5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing!
The Dot is an incredibly heart-felt story that should be shared in every classroom!

5-0 out of 5 stars El Punto!
Peter H. Reynolds has crafted a simple but inspiring story that recognizes the creativity in everyone and shows how simple words can inspire that creativity. This is a book for all those people who have been told they can't by someone, because it proves that imagination lies within us all and that we only need hear it from someone so that we may begin to believe it ourselves. Reynolds reminds us of the powerful influence of teachers and their ability to challenge the preconceived notions we might hold about ourselves, encouraging us to dream and turn those dreams into reality. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Giving geeks a good name.
Encyclopedia Brown was my childhood hero. I liked him so much I named my cat Sally Kimball. Not one to stand out in a crowd, Cyc (on the covers of the old scholastic paperbooks) looked like a carbon copy of my 2nd grade self. Of course, I was sitting inside reading about his adventures during recess, not solving crimes, with wits perhaps not quite so sharp. And my suburb did not have quite as many opportunities for me to distinguish myself with crime-solving ability. Still, Cyc taught me lessons that I saw myself one day applying, once I escaped Red China.
5-0 out of 5 stars Are You a good detective?
This story is about a boy who starts a detective business and his name is Leroy Brown, but all his friends call him Encyclopedia.His father is the cheif of police and no one in the city of Idaville(where he lives)had gotten away with any crime in over one year!Whenever his father gets a hard case, he tells it to Leroy and it's solved very fast, but it's their little secret.The answers to all the cases are in the back of the book, but sometimes it's fun to solve them yourself.Some cases are easier than others and some are harder than others but they all make this a good book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Still a favorite after 20 years...
I read all the books I could find in this series as a young girl.To this day, I still remember some of the answers and clues (a door swings out towards its hinges).I am so glad to have found these books and hope to share them with my son and nephews when the time is right.I'll probably read them all over again...that is how much I enjoyed them growing up.

This is one of those books that gets read over and over and over.Unlike some other books which end up at the bottom of the drawer.My 5 year old son is also starting to read the book himself (I hear him on the monitor).The other books in is this series are just as good if not better.

Great book!I just wish it was clearer that it was a paper book and not card board (which are much more durable for a two year old).Also, would love to know age approprietness for books when buying.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Selection!
Cows that type? Get out of town! Well, these cows do type, and negotiate. Life in a barnyard could not be more interesting than in this precarious story of farm animals that take a stand to better themselves and their environment. I loved the expressions on the animal's faces when Farmer Brown reacts to their demands. 'Eyes wide open' certainly applies here. This is a read aloud must! Not since I read Animal Farm by Orwell, have I been completely captivated by farm animals.

Editorial Review

In evaluating a children's dictionary, there are two test words wealways check first: "e-mail" and "iguana." After all, if "e-mail" doesn't appearin a dictionary, how up-to-date can it be? And iguanas, well, what kid doesn'twant to read all about this "very large tropical American lizard with a ridge oftall scales along its back"? We are happy to report that this fine dictionary isabove and beyond our gold standard. Not only are there definitions for each ofthe test words, there are illustrations for each, as well! This 912-pageillustrated dictionary is packed with great information, including world maps onthe inside covers, an easy-to-use how-to guide, and a reference section withfacts and maps of the continents, pictures of flags from countries around theworld, U.S. presidents and vice presidents, pronunciation guides, signs andsymbols, and lots more. Sandwiched between this wealth of facts and figures are846 pages of definitions with DK's trademark crisp, clear photographsillustrating many of the words. One of the handiest features in this volume isthe multicolored alphabet running down the outer edges of every single page,with the featured letter highlighted for easy reference when flipping through.So get out there and e-mail all your iguana friends about this terrificreference guide!

I ordered this for my son who homeschools.We are doing 3rd 4th grades combined next year and this dictionary is perfect for elementary reference skills.He likes the colorful pictures and I think that the alphabet tabs on the page edge will be very useful to him when looking up words.Quite a nice book for the price.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great dictionary
This is a great dictionary for kids. I received it in first grade, and it was used extensively in the past years. It has colorful photos illustrating various words, and the print is large enough for a young child to read.
5-0 out of 5 stars AMuist Have for Parents
Most DK products for children are outstanding and this is one of them. Well illustrated and comprehensive. It is a large hard back, not a small desktop reference. It is for third graders and up. The type is small and hard to read for children in lower grades. But my first grader loves the book because it is rich in features that fascinate him even though it is hard for him to read. He enjoys the flag section in the back and he enjoys the first rate gazetteer also in the back.

5-0 out of 5 stars Haunted Castle
This particular book I'm reading is called The Haunted Castle on Hallows Eve . It's not a very scary book but it might be for Annie and Jack. They're the main characters in the book. They have the magic tree house that sends them on missions. In this secret mission, they don't know what it is about but along the way they find clues. They don't know if it is dangerous or not. But luckily their friend Teddy can come along with them. He's from a whole different dimension. He's from a world where there's wizards. Teddy has a magic rhyming twig that nobody knows about. Inside this castle they go around looking for something that might be going wrong. The exciting, never ending heart pounding action is going to begin. Did Jack and Annie see A ghost or An invisible child. Find the excitement.

This is one of my favorite children's books. It reminds me that friendship is something to value and savor for every moment, and is not something to take for granted. Just as Corduroy was doing everything in his power to find his lost butten so he would be wanted, the little girl was saving her money to have companionship from Corduroy.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Miracle ofyour Child's Birth will Stir Your World
I know that some reviewers feel that this book is exaggerated, unrealistic and that it gives a false perception to children that they are more special than they actually are, but you know what? I don't care. I read the good and bad reviews before ordering it and decided to go ahead anyway. I'm glad I did! The coming of my child may not have stirred anyone else's world but it sure stirred my husband's and mine. When I looked into his beautiful little eyes mine couldn't stop running, and when his little face touched my cheek my heart skipped a beat.

On the day you were born, the universe rose up to greet you. Share the awe and wonder of life with your precious one. A simple expression of profound truth. A beautiful birthday gift.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Age Appropriate
I bought this book for my four-year old.The age recommendation is four to eight.The text is entirely too graphic and detailed for children of this age.Parts of the book read like KISS lyrics or soft-porn.While this book is factually accurate and contains anatomically correct pictures, it is NOT age-appropriate.

5-0 out of 5 stars This was how I learned "the facts of life" :)
I remember thinking this was a great book when I was a little kid. I agree with the reviewer who said that it's most appropriate for small children; I was probably 5 or 6 when my mom gave it to me. I remember it being very cute, and not the least bit distasteful. Half of my family works as delivery room nurses, so I was asking lots of questions early on! I know folks whose parents were so embarrassed about giving "the talk" that they learned everything from kids on the school bus, etc. This book is a great way of presenting information in a way young children can understand, without having to lie to them or change the subject.

Other than the picture of mommy and daddy in the bath tub together, I think this is a pretty good book.It puts this part of life in todler terms.If you are easily offended by graphics, don't buy this book. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best pieces in children's lit.
The four Darling children are taken to the fantastical world Never Land by the mischievious Peter Pan,who first appeared in their window a short time before. PETER PAN is considered by many a fairy tale, and as in all the finest fairy tales,there is an underlying darkness left out of the Disney versions. There is also a bittersweet depth beneath the whimsy of the story,which Disney seems to have forgotten to add. If you have exposed a child to the cheesy Disney musical,show them the real magic of the story by reading them the book. Trust me. You won't regret it. This a book the whole family can enjoy. Read it for yourself too. Happy Birthday,Peter!
4-0 out of 5 stars very good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is one of the best books I have read!I thought boring,but when I started I could not stop reading it!This book is for a child that loves adventures.

5-0 out of 5 stars enchanting, haunting
yes, I used the word haunting to describe this book, thats because, well, it is. The book has many metaphores for death, youth, and evil. Death is metaphored in many places, such as Mrs. Darlings fear for her children, and also in the crocodile, with his ticking down until the day we all die.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for any age
My daughter is just 2 years old and she's been making me read it to her for about 6 months now. Obviously it'll help her read in the future, but I want her to have fun with books. And this is the perfect book to start off with, even if she can't read yet.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great First for ELL
I worked with a little girl (ELL) who already had her basic reading skills; phonemic awarness, letter recognition and knowing what to do with words (in print).She just couldn't seem to read (even in her first language) with the level of fluency required for a student to pass from K- to First grade.This book captured her attention and we worked on the book in sections, first we read the section, then she had it as "homework".Each week when I returned to her home to work with her she would read both her "homework" and the preceeding section(s) in the book until at last she could read the entire book.This is the first hard back book, that she has ever read completely by herself so I have purchased this as a gift to her. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars the greatest yoga deck
I am a yoga teacher and I work with children. This Yoga deck has been extremely useful and fun. The kids love to pick their cards and build their own sequence. The love to be able to look at the poses and try them.
5-0 out of 5 stars Backbone of a Great Kids Yoga Class
These cards are very useful in structuring a class for children. The children enjoy seeing the brightly colored cards which show how it looks when doing the pose. You can make your own "string of poses" for the children to do, as the deck suggests, by picking a card from each color (rainbow string), or there are other "strings" suggested (basic string, sleepy string, energy string, friends string, calming down string, warm-up for sports string). I teach yoga to children ages 6-12 at a Youth Center, and I use these cards for every class. We mostly use the Rainbow String, except I often put the partner poses (a yellow card) at the end of a class to close it. That way, the children leave the class feeling a connection with one another. Often, I pick two poses in a particular color group (usually the light green and the red cards) to extend the class to a 30 minute time frame. There are really nice GAMES at the bottom of each card, listed after instructions for doing the pose. They are clearly bulleted, and I have found them to be very useful. The children are interested in these cards, and they like to shuffle them around and read them. They can offer input for class content. These cards spark their interest in yoga. I have many "yoga for children" books which I use as supplements occasionally, but this yoga deck forms the structure for the children's yoga classes. I would recommend it for home use also. These cards are easy to use, and they make yoga FUN for the kids!

1-0 out of 5 stars No Games!
Highly disappointed and wasted my $15!!I am extremely disappointed in this deck.The title clearly states that there are games in the deck.3 of us--2 adults and 1 child--have searched the deck for any type of games.Not a single one can be found!!!If you're looking for very basic poses on decent quality card stock, this is fine.However, if it's games involving yoga that you'd like, then save your money and don't buy this! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Heed the Warning!
The Lorax is another book by Seuss with a powerful message within its pages. Its message is more overt and obvious to the reader than other Seuss books. Simply stated, we must take care of the natural resources around us or they could be forever lost. The main character in the story is filled with greed at the prospect making and selling more Thneeds. He continually ignores the Lorax's warnings. For a while, he and his family are very successful and prosperous, but in time the prophetic warnings come to pass. The trees are all gone, the air is black with smog, and the water is thick with sludge. For me, the Lorax represents those in our society who put themselves on the front lines to protect our environment. Many ridicule them and call them "Tree Huggers!" But, we should think twice before we dismiss their warnings. We have already seen many of the parallels between this book and reality occur.

5-0 out of 5 stars The favorite of a father and a daughter.
As I approached my 100th review, I wondered if I should make it special? Tonight I decided what it should be after reading it to my daughter.
5-0 out of 5 stars How much do I love this book?!
I love, love, LOVE The Lorax! This book should be required reading in schools, especially in light of the current trend towards corporate responsibility. Every time I hear someone defend a toxic product, I think, "But a Thneed is a thing that everyone, everyone, EVERYONE needs!" ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best One Yet!!!
My 4 year old niece loves Don't let the pigeon drive the bus.She recently got Don't let the pigeon stay up late and it is her new favorite.She loves yawning with the pigeon throughout the book.This is a great bedtime book.Very funny!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Author needs to learn to be a lot more personable and care about the children he writes the books for
I purchased this book for my daughter because her school was going to listen to him read at the local book store.My daughter had wanted to get her picture taken with him but couldn't because her class had to leave so she asked if I would please get him to sign her book saying that she had met him so she could always remember this day.I told her that I would be happy to.I went up to have him sign it for her and asked if he could please put something saying that it was nice meeting her so that she would always have that memory.He refused said that he writes his own which is always the persons name rocks-not real personal.He said I could write that on the other page saying that she meet him.Needless to say, I returned the book.Any one who can not be nice and take just 1 minute to make a little girl happy by simply giving her a memory is not worth buying!!!I would highly suggest buying a different book by a different author.There are tuns of great children books out their by authors who truly care about making children happy and making a difference.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not one of Mo's best, but still a must-have
Mo Willems is very popular in our home.Our six year old adores the pigeon books.We have read them all, and own most of them."Don't let the Pigoen Stay Up Late" is the weakest book in the series, but is still adorable and we had to buy it."The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog" is still the favorite in our household, however.The pigeon books are excellent to read to toddlers and excellent for early readers to read out loud for themselves. ...
