Winner of the 2011 Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award. In a monastery in the mountains of Mourne during the Middle Ages, one young monk struggled to focus on his task: copying the Bible and other scholarly books with plain brown ink made from wood bark in plain brown books in his plain brown robe at his plain brown desk. Brother Theophane was soon transferred from the scribe’s room and assigned to make the ink that the brothers used. With his natural curiosity, Theophane discovered that inks could be made from other plants besides the wood bark. Berries and leaves produced other beautiful colors. And soon, the books the monks made were illuminated with colors and drawings. C.M. Millen’s charming story of a young monk who defied the discipline of the monastery and found his own way to express the beauty of the world will inspire young readers to explore their own world and find their own voices. Andrea Wisnewski’s illustrations, inspired by the illuminated letters that the medieval monks created in books like the Book of Kells, bring to life the colors and beauty that surrounded Brother Theophane amidst the plain world of the monastery.

An international best-seller with more than one million copies in print and a winner of France's Prix Goncourt, The Lover has been acclaimed by critics all over the world since its first publication in 1984. Set in the prewar Indochina of Marguerite Duras's childhood, this is the haunting tale of a tumultuous affair between an adolescent French girl and her Chinese lover. In spare yet luminous prose, Duras evokes life on the margins of Saigon in the waning days of France's colonial empire, and its representation in the passionate relationship between two unforgettable outcasts. Long unavailable in hardcover, this edition of The Lover includes a new introduction by Maxine Hong Kingston that looks back at Duras's world from an intriguing new perspective--that of a visitor to Vietnam today.

This lovely book celebrates both the should-probably-be-revived art of letter writing--yes, pen and stationery used for a communication process--and the special connection that can exist between people and their extended-family members. In this new offering by award-winning children's-book author Carol Bland Dolson, we watch a little girl and her aunt plan a trip together. They make their plan through a series of letters, written in verse. As is not uncommon with this sort of communication, the letters ultimately reveal the characters' personalities and, due to the subject matter, they also take us to exotic places. From Kokomo and Kalamazoo to Singapore and Serengeti, the people and places of the world take center stage. At the same time, the full-color illustrations by Elaine Hearn Rabon also give the reader a firm and pleasant grounding in the child's surroundings, even as she and her aunt dream up their itinerary. An excellent read-together book for parents and children as well as an early read-alone book, it might also make the perfect gift for an extended-family member. Who knows? It could be the beginning of an enjoyable correspondence. Or a grand world tour.

If you don’t read anything else, please read this. It is OK to be different. Went I went to school there wasn’t anything as a LD student. If there were I would have been classified as LD. If your speech was slow and you were tongue tied or couldn’t hear to good or if you had dyslexia or couldn’t see too well you would end up in the back of the room. Kids would beat up on me because they though I was different. I was chased home by some of the schoolboys until I found it was a game for them. Since I was in the back of the room I couldn’t hear the teacher too well. When the teacher discovered that I hadn’t done what she said, she came back and hit me with her first in the middle of my back. That was sixty-three years ago and I still have pain in my back. Sometimes I have not been able to walk from this. You should not laugh or make fun of others or old people. After they get up around seventy they mostly talk about sickness and doctors. Some people are Paralyze from the neck down. Some people have dysconia which can give you pain and cripple you. Some people have Parkinson decease or even hiccups or stutter for years. Some people are Mongoloid or have Down syndrome and some have tourette. Or other decease. Some have Lupus.
