    Good price for a great read. Wanted to get this read before the movie came out since the book is always better than the movie. In this case the ending of the book was super disappointing and the movie ending was actually way better. But overall the rest of the book was better than the movie mainly because books can include so many more details and really build the story better than a movie can with limited time.

    I bought all from the Backyard Series to read to my 4 1/2 year old Grandson. He is enraptured by each one. The second person format is intriguing to him and the repeated structure from each book (what you looked like when you were young, how you grew, what you eat, what is dangerous to you) allows him to anticipate and ask questions before the answers appear. At each ending, "But if you look like this, or this,... Then you are not a ______," he announces ,"You're a human child!" Non-fiction is underutilized in reading programs in schools and it especially interests boys as opposed to fiction. Reading programs are trying to catch up with this research finding. My experience with this series and my grandson supports that finding. I first used "Are You a Snail" in my fourth grade classroom as a mentor text (along with several other children's picture books) to teach non fiction writing. Students selected an animal and researched it. This was one of several formats they could use to s...

    Please note that when you get this and try to turn it on, the light is unlikely to work. Open the battery panel. Take out the battery. See that the battery is covered in plastic film. Take the film off. Reinsert battery (and use your own judgment about which way--mine was headed North when it should have been headed South).. I like it because it is lightweight. Unfortunately I have gotten old enough to where I notice things like that.

  • UNIQUE AND ENTHRALLING HISTORICAL FICTION!

    I know I have said it before but I will say it again, Jane Kirkpatrick is one of my favorite writers! She finds historical women figures that I have never heard of and their stories are so interesting! I find it incredible the way she weaves the historical facts with fiction to the point that every novel seems like a detailed true account of the person’s life. A Daughter’s Walk is about a young woman, Clara Etsby and her mother, Helga who in 1896, walked 3,500 miles from Spokane Washington to New York City. They did so in an effort to save their family farm that was about to be foreclosed and earn $10,000; quite a tidy sum back then. Helga’s accepted the challenge from a wealthy group of sponsors. The purpose was to promote the “new reform” dress which was shorter, showing the ankles and worn without corsets. The new fashion was publicized for busy, active women. Two women walking cross country alone was shocking enough in the Victorian Era, but in such risqué clothing too?! ...
