Anonymous, German Folk-Lore and Legends
15 German Folk-Lore and Legends Anonymous
First Rate Publishers 1502497786 / 9781502497789 Paperback Very Good 
This is an anonymous collection of German folk stories, mythology, and fairy tales compiled by an unknown individual. From the preface: “It is proposed that this shall be the first of a series of little volumes in which shall be presented in a handy form selections from the Folk-lore and legends of various countries. It has been well said that "the legendary history of a nation is the recital of the elements that formed the character of that nation; it contains the first rude attempts to explain natural phenomena, the traditions of its early history, and the moral principles popularly adopted as the rules for reward and punishment; and generally the legends of a people may be regarded as embodying the popular habits of thought and popular motives of action." The following legends of Germany cannot, we think, fail to interest those who read them. Some of the stories are invested with a charming simplicity of thought which cannot but excite admiration. Others are of a weird, fantastic character fitted to a land of romantic natural features, of broad river, mountain, and deep forest. The humorous, the pathetic, the terrible, all find place in the German folk-tales, and it would be difficult to rise from their perusal without having received both amusement and instruction. The general lesson they convey is the sure punishment of vice and the reward of virtue; some way or another the villain always meets with his desert. In future volumes we shall deal with the legends of other countries, hoping that the public will bear us company in our excursions.”

How to Teach Your Baby to Read (The Gentle Revolution Series), Glenn Doman and Janet Doman
16 Glenn Doman and Janet Doman How to Teach Your Baby to Read (The Gentle Revolution Series)
Garden City Park, NY Square One Publishers 2006 0757001858 / 9780757001857 Paperback Used As New 
Time and again, the work performed at The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential has demonstrated that children from birth to age six are capable of learning better and faster than older children. How To Teach Your Baby To Read shows just how easy it is to teach a young child to read, while How To Teach Your Baby Math presents the simple steps for teaching mathematics through the development of thinking and reasoning skills. Both books explain how to begin and expand each program, how to make and organize necessary materials, and how to more fully develop your child’s reading and math potential. How to Give Your Baby Encyclopedic Knowledge shows how simple it is to develop a program that cultivates a young child’s awareness and understanding of the arts, science, and nature―to recognize the insects in the garden, to learn about the countries of the world, to discover the beauty of a Van Gogh painting, and much more. How To Multiply Your Baby’s Intelligence provides a comprehensive program for teaching your young child how to read, to understand mathematics, and to literally multiply his or her overall learning potential in preparation for a lifetime of success. The Gentle Revolution Series: The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential has been successfully serving children and teaching parents for five decades. Its goal has been to significantly improve the intellectual, physical, and social development of all children. The groundbreaking methods and techniques of The Institutes have set the standards in early childhood education. As a result, the books written by Glenn Doman, founder of this organization, have become the all-time best-selling parenting series in the United States and the world.

When read in the light of Scripture, Tolkien's trilogy reveals a rich tapestry of redemption, values, and faith against all odds.

Crockett, KY Rod and Staff 1986 0739904078 / 9780739904077 Hard Cover Very Good 
From the Editors: God has called us to the task of developing a series of readers for Christian schools. It is our prayer that this volume is in keeping with His purpose and design. The task has not been a simple one. Scripturally sound literature for children is difficult to obtain. Often we have found that material which on the surface appears acceptable finally emerges as a subtle vehicle of untruth.

There is a price sticker inside the front cover and on the back cover. Very light wear and no markings. The Eternal Argument is set up as an analogy of western culture and literature as a long dispute. Theistic thought and humanistic thought are seen to play out through Western literature, just like impassioned conversations and sometimes-feuds between family members. A lens through which students can interpret literature, The Eternal Argument provides a way to engage the "other" side, to understand the argument of literature, and to more fully recognize our history and culture. Each chapter of this book touches upon a Great Work; once the book is completed and students have the tools to be able to fully interpret literature, the second-to-last chapter reviews the books previously discussed. Providing an overarching framework on which to hang different arguments and ideas, this unique work will encourage students to look at how humanity has dealt with various moral issues throughout history, throughout different eras, and through genres of literature. Three discussion questions end each chapter. 286 pages, softcover. High School-Adult. Designed to be read by both parent and student for discussion.

New York Time Books 1989 0812917162 / 9780812917161 Hard Cover Good Very Good 
Light wear on the front cover bottom corner from being dropped. Two strips of clear tape are on the first blank page that had attached the price tag. The author presents in concise, readable form the ancestral sources of over 6,000 common English words and tells how they have grown over the centuries into the terms we use today. In delineating "families" of related words, Robert Claiborne shows, for example, how navigate, squat, demagogue, and ambassador derive from a single root, AG-, "to drive": to navigate is to "drive" a ship; to squat is to force one's body together; a demagogue "drives" the people; and an ambassador is "driven around" to represent a government. An extensive introduction describes the diverse channels by which all these words came into English: the Germanic tongues, Old English, Old Norse, Low Dutch, and High German; Latin and its Romance descendants; and Greek. This book is a must have for all word buffs and language lovers, an intelligent yet uniquely accessible examination of our vocabulary by a recognized and popular authority.

The Plays of Shakespeare: A Thematic Guide, Victor L. Cahn
41 Victor L. Cahn The Plays of Shakespeare: A Thematic Guide
Westport, CT Greenwood Press 2001 0313309817 / 9780313309816 Hard Cover New 
Touching viewers and readers with his presentation of social, moral, and political issues, Shakespeare holds ageless and unequaled appeal primarily because of the universal themes at the heart of his dramatic works. Shakespeare scholar Victor Cahn takes a unique approach to exploring the plays by identifying and explicating the themes that recur throughout the canon. Written in lively language, each of the 35 essays explores a core theme or topic and discusses its implications in several key plays in which it figures prominently. This user-friendly guide not only allows readers to better understand the significance of concepts such as power, politics, marriage or money; the organization by theme also helps users to compare and contrast these important topics across relevant plays. Cahn draws vivid connections between related works of Shakespeare, but just as importantly, enlightens readers as to the pertinence of these themes in contemporary life. While this thematic guide examines all of Shakespeare's plays, particular attention is devoted to those works most often read by students; the tragedies such as Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, Hamlet, and Macbeth, the comedies including A Midsummer Night's Dream and Merchant of Venice, as well as the historical plays like Richard II, and the romantic works such as The Tempest. Students who wish to investigate a particular play in greater depth can refer to this book's title index to identify all citations of that work. This valuable literary resource serves myriad uses, enabling students to trace the thread of a theme, to compare its treatment in several plays, and to understand better a play, its characters, plot and language, by examining Shakespeare's central themes.
