it's a great little book to share with your mother or daughter. It reflects the passage of time and the growth of relationships with the inevitable passing of our loved ones. I am giving this to my mother for Christmas and I am sure that she will cry when she reads it!

There is a passage for every day. SO, you can start your day off right......a book worth having and worth giving to a friend.

I am a 5th Grade teacher at a new school in KY. I bought this book because we don't have a lot of resources for nonfiction. I love this book because it has several nonfiction articles that are leveled for my below - on - and above grade level kids. The articles range between 3rd grade and 7th grade. This allows me to target comprehension strategies while differentiating the reading level. Plus it is extra practice for those multiple choice tests for the specific skill (such as main idea, inference, drawing conclusions, ect...) and each article has vocabulary, word work, and a writing exercise. I don't always use the writing component but I like the option. Really can't say enough good things about this book. The passages are nonfiction, leveled, INTERESTING!

This was a fun and informative book for kids who are losing their first teeth and I sent it off to my grandson. Kids and grown-ups can learn how different some cultures are and how similar others are in dealing with the loss of the baby teeth as a rite of passage. I was surprised at how many cultures include mice and rats in their "tooth tales"!

I really appreciated the compiler's commentary before each of the pieces. I think some of the power of the passages is lost since it's just excerpts without the build-up of surrounding storyline, but I still really enjoyed reading this. Great variety!

This book is a perfect present for the "guy" who is expecting or for someone you feel is a great father. The sharp wit and blunt passages made me literally laugh out loud. I purchased extra to have on hand. Generation X and Y guys really appreciate the humor.

Unlike some of the other reviewers, I had no problem with the accent of Roy Doltrice's narration. I was also very pleased to hear word-for-word passages from the book repeated in the HBO series. There are some minor differences of the storyline from book to TV, but nothing drastic so far. I haven't finished all the CDs yet. All in all, I'm enjoying the audio version very much.

Although not noted in the description, this Bible is compact and so is the **font. However, I decided to keep it because it is becoming harder and harder to come across the King James Version. I can't speak on the author's notes/commentaries because I haven't read them, and typically have realized that the commentaries are just that.. commentaries or opinions. I prefer for the reference to be defined as other Biblical passages being aligned with another Biblical passage, rather than some author giving his or her interpretation. So, I typically just ignore all of the author's comments. This Bible is great quality with truly fine print. But, it's a King James Version!!!! Think of the movie 'The Book of Eli' starring Denzel Washington, and how it showed that the book that was sought after was The Holy Bible [King James Version]. You might want to check out that film -- Excellent!! One must keep in mind that there is also the [original] 1611 King James Version, which this one does NOT include what is popularly referred to as the 'Apocrypha'. However, I believe that one might can find the KJV Apocrypha at www.O.co or www.Overstock.com. **If I had to take a guess on the font size I would say about 7-8 inch. roughly.
