My daughter who is 6 years old wanted a Junie B Jones book. I saw on overstock they carried a series of 4 in a box set. My daughter was thrilled not just have 1 but 4...I was thrilled with the price...and everything not only came in excellent condition but in a timely manner. That I bought 2 other box series 1st & 2nd Junie B Jones box sets.

This book makes you think of so many things on so many different levels. You have a man who is passionate about his work, no matter where it takes him. And he's still alive--a real live amazing hero or humanitarian . . . check out his website directly by Googling Three Cups of Tea. Then you have the other side of Muslim, the one that American media doesn't show us--the one where they are good people who just want to live a decent life and live in peace. It's very eye opening, especially after the last 8 years of having our service men and women over in this region of the world--understanding the desolation and the terrain makes it that much clearer as to why this battle may never cease. And lastly, the biggest point of them all, which I believe applies not only to the rural and remote locations that he's doing his main work in, but applies to us here in America as well: The simple truth that education is the first step to ending terrorism. Who would have known the first step could be that simple?

great book - the little girl I purchased it for loves it. A friend of mine has the series and her daughter speaks of them constantly. Both little girls are 3 years old and loves them.

Really cute book! My son and nephew enjoy reading the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, and the Big Nate series was recommended to us as very similar. It's a Christmas gift, so they haven't read the book yet, but looking through it myself, I think they'll like Big Nate just as much. Pricing and delivery through Overstock.com was satisfactory, although buyers should realize that shipping takes a bit longer than the usually speedy Overstock delivery because books are shipped via media mail. Also no free shipping deals on books, but cost is still very reasonable. I would definitely recommend purchasing via Overstock!

The Horrible Harry book series are amazing and my son looked forward to his assigned reading each evening. Each book is as good as the next. Highly recommend. Simply GREAT!

Arrived quickly and in new condition. My daughter loves these books. She does not like to read but I can always get her to read the Dear Dumb Diary series. So for that alone I give it 5 stars.

I bought this collection of books for my 2 year old son's birthday. Although he's not quite ready to sit for the entire story, they are great, and he carries them around. My 4 year old son loves them, and my 6 year old girl enjoys them as well. We already had the Amazing Airplane book and I had wanted to get more of the series, as I thought it was fun and educational at the same time. I didn't realize there were 10 books until I came across this set. The books in this set are smaller than the regular books but they aren't too small. The truck box that they "stand" in is a little tight and difficult for little fingers, but I wouldn't have cared if the books came with out a holder, so that didn't matter to me. Getting all of the books together was much more economical than buying individual books. I'll be purchasing this set for gifts in the future.

This book, when used in conjunction with the other titles in the series, is a terrific resource, making my life easier and my instruction more clearly defined for my students. They like it because the forms are specific and targeted, and I like it because I don't have to 'reinvent the wheel'. I can and have changed some items around, deleting and adding, depending on what I am working on and the ability levels of my kids. You won't regret this purchase!

This 4th level in the series does not disappoint. We've used this product since level one and will use it again for our other child. It's very thorough in its information and I am even re-memorizing many things. The teacher edition is fully scripted and the student edition has plenty of room to do all the required writing. It spends most of the year going into progressively more detail regarding diagramming sentences. Fits nicely with the Writing With Ease program produced by the same company - Peace Hill Press.

For some reason I bought every book in this series but this one in Hardcover. I had it in paperback. When I realized this, not a single book store in my area sold this book in Hardcover. So... I turned to Overstock. And, with their speedy shipping I was able to complete my hardcover Series! Thanks Overstock!!!!

I use this book in my classroom along with the other books in the series. My students enjoy it and learn a lot form the simple concepts.

Matching the magnificent series by the BBC, this book is great educational material for both young and old. Would recommend it to everybody that has at least some interest in natural sciences.

I confess to being a serious Twi Hard (5 times the average age). But even for those who don't love the series already, this is a delightful audio to own. The narrator is very pleasant and having this lovely, exciting love story read to you as you commute (or whatever) is pure joy.

A stunning book! Part breathtaking adventure yarn, part journalism/history in the making, part inspirational tale of a man who's sort of stumbled into a passionate mission that consumes his life--and has probably been a more effective weapon in the war on terror than all the world's guns and bombs. Greg Mortenson builds schools, especially schools to educate girls. And he does it in Pakistan and Afghanistan, in Muslim villages and with the blessing of the Islamic Council, using donated local labor, listening to what small isolated communities need, so that the school building becomes community building becomes bridge building. A great read, an inspiring story, maybe a blueprint of sorts for a better world.

"Twilight" is book one of a series, three of which are currently available. This is a wonderful story, well written with interesting characters, both female and male - the main character is a high school aged girl. As a middle school librarian and Book Fair chairperson, I have recommended it -especially for teens (grades 8 and up) and women. Everyone that has read it has loved it and can't start the next book soon enough!Parents should read the book description provided by the publisher for insight into the appropriateness for their child.

Had a lot of fun with this new spin on vampires interacting with every day people. I've read a lot of vampire books and this book opened my mind to all the possiblieties that could exsist in this big wonderful world.

Perhaps more for the teen generation, this series of books is wonderful. I devoured all three in record time. Would high recommend.

I bought a whole series of these books and my son loves them. He has been "reading" them for over a year now.

This book begins an interesting saga of the love story between Bella and Edward. It draws on ill-fated love stories of old like ROmeo and Juliet and Wuthering Heights. it is extremely passionate and intimate, while being clean and modest at the same time. THis is a perfect book for an adventurous tween, but as the series progresses, so does the mature themes. It is well written and completely believable although the stories and legends are pure fiction! A great read for ages 10 and up!
