Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

Author: Sherry Helms

There is a vast kingdom of animals existed on earth which consists of thousands of species, from the tiny spider mite to the massive blue whale. Some of them are friendly to human beings and some can be harmful to them. All the animals have their own way of acting and reacting to an event or things, whether living or non-living. And, it would be pretty interesting to explore about them.

What else can offer you complete information on animal/s that you want to explore or read on than books? Among the whole lot of books on animals available with us, we have picked those books that will bring you closer to the kingdom animalia. You can also gift these books to your children or young ones to enhance their knowledge about animals. Here’s the list:

National Geographic Encyclopedia of Animals by George Mc Kay and Karen McGhee - You will meet more than 1,000 animals as you turn the pages of this Encyclopedia. This comprehensive volume lets you explore the entire animal kingdom: mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and all kinds of invertebrates, from sea squirts to worms and spiders. Animals from every corner of the planet—from rugged mountain slopes to ocean depths and from steamy jungles to baking deserts and icy Polar Regions – can be found here. Overall, this adorable animal reference is sure to be welcomed by parents and librarians as well.

Animal: The Definitive Visual Guide by DK Publishing – The first publication of Animal in 2001 elicited some astonishing facts about the Kingdom Animalia, like: the African elephant has been reclassified into two species, a cat-sized rat has been discovered in Papua New Guinea, the only plant-eating spider has been found in Central America, a bird-eating fanged frog has been located in Vietnam, etc.

This new, fully revised and updated volume of Animal takes into account the latest scientific discoveries and developments with more than fifty new species. Pictures from outstanding wildlife photographers add more strength to the explanations given by natural history specialists. Animal can be a best pick to explore the incredible world of animals.

Hughes – With its colorful illustration and child-friendly format & texts, this appealing book is a best pick for children.  This exciting volume boasts magazine-like square shape, readable fonts, and fun content to keep your little ones thrilled with every colorful page.

Unlikely Friendships: 47 Remarkable Stories from the Animal Kingdom by Jennifer Holland – Compiled by National Geographic magazine writer Jennifer Holland, this exciting book documents back-to-back heartwarming tales of animals who, with nothing else in common, acquaints themselves in the most unexpected ways. It draws forth the friendship of a cat and a bird; a mare and a fawn; an elephant and a sheep; a snake and a hamster; the well-documented stories of Koko the gorilla and All Ball the kitten; and the hippo Owen and the tortoise Mzee. It also brings into light some incredible stories of predators befriending prey—an Indian leopard slips into a village every night to sleep with a calf; lionness cares a baby oryx.

The Emotional Lives of Animals: A Leading Scientist Explores Animal Joy, Sorrow, and Empathy – and Why They Matter by Ph.D. Marc Bekoff – Animals do have emotional lives, says the award-winning scientist Marc Bekoff after spending years in studying social communication of a wide range of species. In this volume, Bekoff reveals about extraordinary stories of animal joy, empathy, grief, embarrassment, anger, and love while giving reference of the latest scientific research confirming the existence of emotions in animals. Stuffed with Bekoff’s light humor and touching stories, this book is a clarion call to reassess the ideas on both how we view animals and how we treat them.

Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior by Temple Grandin and Catherine Johnson – Have you ever wondered why a cow would lick a tractor. Why are collies getting dumber? Why do dolphins sometimes kill for fun? How can a parrot learn to spell? How did wolves teach man to evolve? These are questions which Temple Grandin, an animal scientist, addresses in this book. The author observes that people with autism can often think the way animals think and therefore she puts them in the perfect position to translate “animal talk.” Her own experiences with autism helped her to deliver an extraordinary message about how animals act, think, and feel. After reading this book you will change forever the way you think about animals.

Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals by Temple Grandin and Catherine Johnson In her earlier best-selling book, Animals in Translation, Temple Grandin drew attention on her own experience with autism and how it can be used to gauge what animals think, act, and feel. Now, in this book she builds on those insights to show us how to give our animals the best and happiest life, but on their terms, not ours.

Based on the latest research in this field and on her own work, Grandin explains us how to fulfill the requirements of dogs, cats, horses, farm animals, and zoo animals as well. This book teaches us on how to make the healthiest environment for the dog or how to know if the lion pacing in the zoo is miserable or just exercising and on other common requirements or behavior of animals. This book can be productive for anyone who owns or cares an animal.

The Christmas Giant: A Wonderful Idea-Turned-Story for Children

Monday, March 19th, 2012

Happy Birthday to Steve Light, one of the most beloved storytellers and an author and illustrator of children’s book. On his day, the author himself shares with you some interesting and fun-coated experiences tied with his popular and really wonderful book “The Christmas Giant”. Just go through it and have a great fun!!

Author: Steve Light

 The Christmas Giant started from a small drawing I made in my sketchbook on a trip to London with my wife. It was of a giant carrying a Christmas tree. When I made the drawing I thought, “Wouldn’t it be cool if Santa had a giant that delivered Christmas trees for him.”

When we returned to New York I forgot all about it. Then months later I had a meeting with my editor Joan Powers. I was showing her a book about a giant and another book about toys. She looked at me and said, “These both feel like Christmas to me. Have you ever thought about a Christmas book, I would be interested in working on a one with you?” As soon as she said that the little drawing of the giant carrying the Christmas tree popped into my head. I said, “I have an idea for a Christmas Giant that delivers trees for Santa.” Joan was very interested in that idea and we set to work.

Of course as you develop an idea it changes. Instead of delivering ALL of the Christmas trees to everyone on Christmas, Humphrey the giant and Leetree the elf deliver just one big tree to Christmas town. Humphrey and Leetree know Santa because they make all the wrapping paper for him.

I love the idea of a giant and elf working together and making something. I always wondered who made all the wrapping paper for Santa. So the idea of Humphrey and Leetree making the paper was such a fun idea to me. Plus as the illustrator of the book, I got to design and draw all the wrapping paper.

What fun! When I was little and people would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would always say, “Santa.” I feel like Santa every time I read The Christmas Giant to a group of children and see their faces light up!

Get copies of The Christmas giant and other books by Steve Light from our mega Online Bookstore, and gift or read to your children to make them happier.

The Little Valley Series: Love-Sorrow-Hope-Love

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Author: Jerry Eicher

I was driving through Western New York State on my way to visit Amish relatives in Aylmer Ontario when I first became aware of the Amish settlement in Cattaraugus County. Just a causal remark to my inquires about the Amish at Burger King, I believe. “Sure, there are lots of them about thirty miles from here.”

So I made a point to stop in the next time, which coincidentally was a trip to my grandmother’s funeral. Out of that stop a research trip came, some months later, and a full blown series, The Little Valley Series.

Not until all three books where completed, did it dawn on me who I had based the female character on. My grandmother, she didn’t do all the things Ella does, but Anna Stoll was a brave woman. She also loved deeply, and lost her husband in the early 1970’s. Though, she would never remarry.

Ella’s Wedding Quilt” was billed by Publishers Weekly, as a study in grief. I didn’t quite intend that. My purpose was to give Ella’s sorrow the exposure it deserved. That does take up a few chapters, but it sets the tone for the rest of the story. How can Ella’s heart find healing again after the disappearance of Aden, her love, from her life?

The young Bishop Miller is sure he has the answers – A quick wedding between Ella and him, now that Aden is gone. Ella’s parents agree, considering the bishop’s attention a great honor. But Ella begs off for six months to heal from Aden’s death, while her house is being built by Aden’s brother Daniel, and she waits for the healing to begin.

 “Ella’s Wish” opens with Ella ensconced in her new home and wondering where life will take her. Personally, Ella wants nothing, but for everyone to leave her alone, especially Bishop Miller and his upcoming visit. Adding to her problems is Preacher Stutzman, a widower, the one who thundered at Aden’s funeral, denouncing the sins of youth. He now needs someone to care for his young daughters. Ella consents, in order to bring in extra income, and the plot deepens.

Everything wraps up, of course, in book three as “Ella Finds Love Again”, continues. Things take unexpected turns as Ella tries to sort out the choices. Should she follow her heart or is the call of duty higher? And how can she let go of Preacher Ivan Stutzman’s daughters, if she rejects the Ivan’s advances? Since all the three of his children have stolen her heart.

I hope you enjoy the series, and obtain at the same time a glimpse of my grandmother’s courage and character.

Celebrity in Death by J. D. Robb: Mystery with Fun

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Author: Sherry Helms

Reading a book from ‘In death’ series is always proved to be a great experience, offering readers a feeling of being at home.  The new installment, Celebrity in Death, of this series renders the same essence. In this newborn, the author, J. D. Robb, come up with new experiments to Eve & Roarke’s adventures. She has subtly blended, in this new adventure of Lieutenant Eve Dallas, a stroke of humor with the ever-present mystery/suspense.

There were many ludicrous moments with all the characters of Celebrity in Death. Readers definitely will love having blow of fun while going through a labyrinth of mystery and suspense.

Seeing your beloved character Lieutenant Eve Dallas surrounded by the movie stars is great fun. Though she is no party girl, she had to attend celebrity-packed assemblage celebrating The Icove Agenda, a film based on one of her famous cases. Eve finds it spooky to see an actress, K. T. Harris, who plays Peabody, playing her character. But, when the actress shifts at the center of a crime scene during dinner, Eve gets off her heels and straps on her holster to help out the actress.

Unlike earlier installments of the ‘In Death’ series, this book has less action but the crime is solved with subtle understanding and introspection. What is missing in this book is the presence of Whitney (Eve’s boss, the police Commander) whose yelling at the people adds more taste in the resolution of any mystery/suspense.

No chasing criminals down the streets, no bombs disarmed, no off world travel and not even any arguments between Eve & Roarke. But, the book is interesting and doing well with its doses of fun.

Review of M. C. Higgins, the Great: A Birthday Present to Virginia Hamilton

Monday, March 12th, 2012

Author: Sherry Helms

It’s a privilege for us to cover Virginia Hamilton, on our blog commemorating her birth anniversary today. An award-winning African-American author, she has penned a good number of fictions & non-fictions for children and young adults. Today, on Virginia Hamilton’s 78th birth anniversary, we want our readers to celebrate her birthday by reading her most popular book M. C. Higgins, the Great.

Unconventional themes and multi-textured characterizations are the essence of all her books. But M. C. Higgins, the Great is apt to read today as it addresses one of the most sensitive issues of our endangered environment. This book won her many awards, including the Newbery Medal (1975) for excellence in American children’s literature and the prestigious, National Book Award in Children’s Books category and the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award. Even, till date this remains the only book that has won all the three prestigious book awards at once.

The story of this American classic revolves around the predicaments of the young protagonist Mayo Cornelious Higgins or M. C. Higgins who loves pampering the nature while sitting on the perch of his 40-foot pole gifted by his father to swim across the Ohio River. His family is rooted to the slopes of Sarah’s Mountain that has been the homes of the Higgins family ever since M.C.’s great-grandmother Sarah came to a mountain as a runaway slave and made it her home. But now their home is threatened by the strip-mining that has left a giant slag heap perched precariously above their house.

M.C. is not blind to this danger, but he also knows that his family cannot migrate from this place.  When two strangers appear into his life, he finds himself entrapped between the heritage of his mountain home and his desires for the future. Will he be able to overcome this predicament?

All in all, this book is about father and son conflicts and teen romance running parallel with the elicitation of the insightful issues about nature and the environment. Or better to say, it’s all about family heritage, and the courage of taking a stand for what you believe in.

If you want to read M. C. Higgins, the Great, you can get a copy it from us. Copies of the hardback edition of this award-winning book are available at our mega online bookstore,
