Non-fiction books of interest to all ages.
To call this book a beautifully illustrated book of a detailed, guided "A to Z" tour of many interesting Boston sites and events in history - only begins to describe a book which you and your children will want to read again and again. Each page includes a main illustration with explanatory text and additional "factoids", an insert with the main "alphabet text" and illustration, and a small detail illustration with a location key. From "Fans flock to Fenway" (the curse of the Bambino) to "Sun shines on solemn sadness" (memorials such as the etched glass towers of the New England Holocaust Memorial) to "Zoodopters adopt zoo animals" (Franklin Park Zoo), this A to Z journey will inform, entertain, and capture you, like no other.
Parenting Book: What parents, coaches and kids need to know about youth baseball. Includes interviews with Tom Glavine, Paul O'Neill, Bobby Cox as well as many other players and managers.
This new book was a great hit at two recent school book fairs! 8 year old through adult readers will enjoy learning some art history and gain a greater appreciation for great works of art in the National Gallery in London while having fun solving the art fraud mystery. Even once the mystery is solved (no easy task!), this book will be a wonderful resource about some 33 artists including Rembrandt, Seurat, Picasso, Van Gogh, Van DeVelde, Gainsborough and Morisot. A great holiday gift idea for your child's art teacher, any art lover, an entire family.
