I was read these books in a classroom setting by an incredible teacher when I was in elementary school and wanted to share the adventures with my grandchildren. They are gifted students and are thrilled at the adventures before us this spring as we read about Laura Ingalls Wilder.

I purchased these Audio CD's to help keep my Grandaughter interest in books. She struggles with reading and is behind for her age. She started out with the CD's and followed along with the books that we had purchased seperately. She played them over and over again. She just loves the stories. Before long I heard her reading the book on her own. I thought it was just from memory, but was quickly surprised that she was reading the whole book . These are all great stories read by the Author of the Books and keep kids very engaged! Since receiving these Audio CD's her reading level has jumped to steps or levels in school. I have already purchased 9-16 of the Audio CD's. Anything that helps children to love reading is a great tool. We have listened to them on short trips and the stories are easy to understand and fun to listen to. They also help you feel like you are part of the story and helping out Jack and Annie to solve the Mystery Adventures!

I am an amateur decorator and have quite a collection of design books. I ordered this because I'm in the process of re-doing my bedroom. Although this book provides great photos and a selection of styles (e.g., modern, traditional, mid-century) I was so "hungry" for more photos of each room and more photos of bedrooms. This book includes photos of master baths also and that was not of interest to me. A "bedroom" book should have lots of photos of bedrooms and not a bunch of photos of flowers on a nightstand or a corner reading nook or a partial photo of a canopy on a bed. This is a nice picture book, that's all.

This book is a collection of essays referring to the original novel The House of God. It is moreso a book of book reviews.

The book invites comments from all who spot it, and is a good conversation starter. The book itself is interesting, and has lots of "fun" illustrations to go with the descriptions. We actually got an idea or two of how to arrange some of our own collections.

this has made the summer reading requirement for my son less of a battle this year. he actually followed along in the book as the story was being told. GREAT!! I will purchase additional audio books!

While the two authors on occasion slightly disagree, or repeat themselves, this is a wonderful collection of fly-fishing tips--250 of them! I've been fly fishing for many years, and writing about it as well, and I found much of value in this book. Some tips were new to me, I'm embarrassed to admit, and some were reminders of important things I'd either forgotten or just haven't been paying enough attention to. I'll be a better fly fisher for having read this book. And I am going to keep it handy for dipping into now and then. A treasure trove for beginners and "experts" alike. Read it from cover to cover, then keep it by the bedside.

Very good book with lots of good pictures. Missing some of the houses, but not sure any of the books could contain all of his works. If one truly enjoyed the works of Frank LLoyd Wright, this book would be worth the large purchase price. We have several of the books and have been to several of the houses. We have the books that are specifically for the houses we toured, but have several that contain a collection of houses. THis book is a good overview and would be a good book for someone to either start with, or if one just wanted a good general book on Frank LLoyd Wright

My granddaughter LOVES this series and the collection itself is very well done in appearance. It also helps to have the book "case" included.

Like the other reviewer, I too was sooo sad to see Domino go away. I really, really enjoyed their magazine and bought the first edition to the last. If you weren't as lucky as I was to get in on the ground floor, then definitely, this would be a great book to add to your collection. However, if you saved every issue and still refer back to them like I do, this book is unfortunately nothing new. Everything in it is a rehash of previous layouts they did in their monthly publication, which I personally found really dissappointing. I was hoping for more! However, since it was my favorite magazine to date, I would say unless you want to hang on boxes of magazines, this would be a handy little reference book to have on your shelf. Domino will be sorrily missed, and this makes a nice collectors item for your memory shelf with full of really smashing ideas...just like the magazine, itself. RIP Domino!!

As always, this Robert Subuda book is fabulous. The detail to each page is breathtaking. Our 4 year old loved it & so did we. It has an extra incentive @ the end w/ the house that has Christmas lights that light up. It is a fabulous book to anyone's collection.
