We recently bought a bird feeder for the backyard as an interesting way for our young children to appreciate nature. We soon realized that so many birds were showing up that we couldn't identify very many of them. This book is great in that it clearly depicts all of the species we have observed so far. And it does so easily indexed by color and size. So we are able to look up a bird in the book while it is feeding. A great basic, beginner guide.

First of all I love the title of the book! It sets the tone for all the humor and creativeness that follows. I always thought cats acted wise but who knew how much so! The pictures are adorable! For each topic of advice, different astute kitties share their wisdom. I thought it was great that all of them were hilarious; there were really great insights and lessons! How clever of Mr. Greenburg. This is a great book anyone that needs a chuckle and their spirits lifted. It is a nice hardbound quality book. I don’t think you just have to be a cat or animal lover to enjoy it. Instead of “Dear Abby”, maybe “Dear Tabby”? I received a copy of this book free from Andrew McMell Publishing. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

This is a compelling young adult fiction novel written by a new author. It is a love story mixed with science fiction, humor and even classic literature. I am always interested in how people can explain time-travel and their ideas of what time really is. I enjoyed the connection that Dante (the mysterious and handsome foreign-exchange student from Italy) had with Leonardo da Vinci. I laughed at Abby (the intelligent and creative high school senior) as she watched her little sister play her homemade A&B Clue (Austen and Bronte). The classic writings from Dante, Shakespeare, Virgil and poet W. H. Auden are woven throughout the story, creating connections with the past to the present. The mysteries of the book are not revealed early in the story, creating a can-not-put-it-down read.

My son and his wife have a great view of a wildlife preserve behind their new house in Maryland. They wondered about some of the birds and now they have a handy resource to identify them! Not too scientific - just something fun to reach for when they see a new bird.

Stranded, Alaskan Courage Book Three by Dani Pettrey Darcy St James returns to Alaska and a job she gave up to help out her friend and former coworker Abby. They are former partners as investigation journalists. Abby has stumbled upon a big case and needs Darcys help but when she goes to help Abby has disappeared from the cruise ship. The last person Darcy expects to meet is Gage McKenna. When she last left Alaska she left a part of her heart and never expected to see Gage again. Together they face danger and fight for their lives. This is the first book I have had the pleasure of reading by the author Dani Pettrey and the first in this series, I find it to be well written. It is a fast paced book that grabs and holds your attention. I had a hard time putting it down. Although it is part of a series it can be read as a stand alone, I had no problem following. I give this outstanding book five stars and can not wait to learn all about the rest of the McKennas in the first two books. This author is sure to find her way to my favorites. I want to thank the author Dani Pettrey and publisher for bringing good clean Christian books like this one to readers like me.

We ordered this book for our daughter, who's name is Abbie (it's very hard finding anything with this spelling, so there was no question we had to have it)! Our daughter also loves historical books - biographies, diaries, novels, so this was an added bonus. The book is very interesting and she loves it. Our Abbie is 16, so don't hesitate to order this for any age. Thanks overstock!
