I love this book, a gift from my father. Covey speaks of ways to achieve a great family culture even if you are having current problems. As a mother of four I appreciate the wisdom he shares as a father of 9. My favorite quote from the book. "To do carefully, constantly & kindly many little things is not a little thing."
Every family could implement these "habits".
I have wanted this book for years, as part of my nutrition curriculum I hoped to use Mr Bartholomew's model for each class to set up and maintain a class garden.
Before I asked the school for the assistance and/or funding I wanted to be sure it was as simple and effective as it claimed to be.
I followed the directions and not only does it work it is exactly as promised, easy start up, easy up keep, and it was widely successful. We harvested squash, honeydew melons, peppers and more herbs than we could believe.
I learned about composting and have my waste happily "cooking" for the next growing season.
This book is exactly as promised, I would recommend it to teacher's everywhere, (there is a teacher's manual, but it is geared to elementary & I have secondary), I feel reconnecting with our food is the answer to healthier eating habits for generations to come.
A great read, oh yeah except Feather uses unfamiliar language that really makes it hard to stay in the story. Not big words, foreign (think latin) words, I ended up with a dictionary in my lap. It was very distracting from what I already mentioned was a great read. Love the characters not the usual "she was gorgeous, so was he," it had way more depth. So read it but bring your latin/english & you'll probably want french/english too, dictionaries. Starting the sequel, Almost a Lady, hope it delivers too.
Good book but so far no new information. All the books Tightwad Gazette, etc all have same information. I keep hunting for the one to say something new...If you haven't read any others though I recommend this as a good one.
A brilliant orphan who just wants a home, a book, and to banish her red hair.
If you want a clean happy read for your daughter 9 up or yourself this is the series to read. Sweet & very funny, there is a little Anne in all of us. Best bet buy it for your younger daughter & read her a chapter at bed every night.
This cute funny book alternates between Cosby's childhood & that of his children. It's hard to say which is funnier, the way he tells stories the reader always wins. Easy summer read, a quick chapter at a time or the whole thing on a long flight.
Whew, this is a pretty heavy read. However, for those in graduate level courses this is written for you. Amazing work that I used in my research in the field of teens and sexuality. It looks deep into the human psyche and how we as humans express what is inside as sexual experiences.
Got this for Christmas it has some winners & losers just like every other cookbook I own. Love the recipes for oatmeal, & buttered noodles & ice cream sandwiches.
The cake recipe had the wrong cook time posted so be warned.
I love Lindsey, but frankly I was a little disappointed. The hero is going to "fix" the heroine, it seem highly unlikely that during this era such a guy exists. He spends the whole book analyzing her. Still love Lindsey but this one left me a little confused.
