İyi bir kitap, ancak filmlerin bunun için yarattığı tüm çılgınlığa değmez. Edward, anti-sosyal, kontrol sahibi bir kişilik gibi görünüyor ve Bella "sıkıntıdaki küçük hanımı" oynuyor.
Şimdi neden bu kadar çok insanın Kate ve Curran'ı sevdiğini anlıyorum. Harika, harika bir çift ve bu kitap şaşırtıcıydı.
Older Than the Stars by Karen C. Fox and illustrated by Nancy Davis and illustrated by Nancy Davis uses the cumulative rhyming to teach children about the Big Bang Theory. I read it as part of my astronomy themed grad school project. It was the only Big Bang book I found for the 5 to 8 year old range. The text is in two parts: a "House that Jack Built" style rhyme written into the illustrations and a block of typed text that elaborates on the introduced concepts. Children will learn about the universe, how stars and planets are formed and some basic theories behind chemistry. The wild illustrations could serve as a inspiration for a science related art project. Children could paint stars or other elements from nature and make their own rhymes. I read this book originally for my astronomy project in the materials for children ages 5 to 8 class.
Ordered this book by mistake. So many similar titles recently, it seems. But since I had it, and I love elephants, read it anyway. I'm so glad I did. It's a beautiful story. A brother and sister elephant arrive on docks of an English port, very dehydrated and nearly dead. They are taken to a rich man who has a stableman that takes on the care and healing of the two elephants. Much about elephant biology is revealed in the early part of the book. And the caretaker, Tom Page, becomes the main human character in the book. The elephants grow up and thrive with Tom's love and gentle care. But, the kind owner dies and they are sold to another country gentleman. Tom and Jenny, the female elephant, end up going to another estate, then to a menagerie. Early owners are kind and benevolent, but when the son of the menagerie owner decides to take Jenny in hand, the results are tragic and life-changing. This was a pleasant and believable read. Much more believable than the events in another supposed memoir that featured an elephant, Modoc, by Ralph Hefler. But this book reminded me of Modoc and some of his adventures.
