READING: From the expert team behind IT'S PERFECTLY NORMAL and IT'S SO AMAZING! comes a book for younger children about their bodies — a resource that parents, teachers, librarians, health care providers, and clergy can use with ease and confidence. Young children are curious about almost everything, especially their bodies. And young children are not afraid to ask questions. What makes me a girl? What makes me a boy? Why are some parts of girls' and boys' bodies the same and why are some parts different? How was I made? Where do babies come from? Is it true that a stork brings babies to mommies and daddies? IT'S NOT THE STORK! helps answer these endless and perfectly normal questions that preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary school children ask about how they began. Through lively, comfortable language and sensitive, engaging artwork, Robie H. Harris and Michael Emberley address readers in a reassuring way, mindful of a child's healthy desire for straightforward information. Two irresistible cartoon characters, a curious bird and a squeamish bee, provide comic relief and give voice to the full range of emotions and reactions children may experience while learning about their amazing bodies. Vetted and approved by science, health, and child development experts, the information is up-to-date, age-appropriate, and scientifically accurate, and always aimed at helping kids feel proud, knowledgeable, and comfortable about their own bodies, about how they were born, and about the family they are part of.

READING: Все было готово для празднования пятилетнего юбилея супружеской жизни, когда вдруг необъяснимо пропал один из виновников торжества. Остались следы борьбы в доме, кровь, которую явно пытались стереть, - и цепочка «ключей» в игре под названием «охота за сокровищами»; красивая, умная и невероятно изобретательная жена ежегодно устраивала ее для своего обожаемого мужа. И похоже, что эти «ключи» - размещенные ею тут и там странные записки и не менее странные безделушки – дают единственный шанс пролить свет на судьбу исчезнувшей. Вот только не придется ли «охотнику» в процессе поиска раскрыть миру и пару-тройку собственных малосимпатичных тайн?

Первый прожитый в Провансе год оказался настолько богат яркими впечатлениями, что вдохновил Питера Мейла на создание книги, мгновенно ставшей международным бестселлером. «Год в Провансе» до сих пор считается лучшей туристической книгой, посвященной Франции, он был экранизирован на телевидении и принес своему автору признание Французской Республики, которая произвела Питера Мейла в кавалеры ордена Почетного легиона.

Опираясь на многочисленные труды еврейских и нееврейских историков XIX–XX веков, он убедительно показывает, что этот народ состоит из потомков прозелитов из Африки, Европы и России, объединенных общей мифологией.Читатель-скептик, прочитавший увлекательную книгу, сможет облегченно вздохнуть – законы истории не делают для евреев никаких исключений.

Pages 323

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: According to a view assumed by many scientists and philosophers of science and standardly found in science textbooks, it is controlled ex perience which provides the basis for distinguishing between acceptable and unacceptable theories in science: acceptable theories are those which can pass empirical tests. It has often been thought that a certain sort of test is particularly significant: 'crucial experiments' provide supporting empiri cal evidence for one theory while providing conclusive evidence against another. However, in 1906 Pierre Duhem argued that the falsification of a theory is necessarily ambiguous and therefore that there are no crucial experiments; one can never be sure that it is a given theory rather than auxiliary or background hypotheses which experiment has falsified. w. V. Quine has concurred in this judgment, arguing that "our statements about the external world face the tribunal of sense experience not indi vidually but only as a corporate body". Some philosophers have thought that the Duhem-Quine thesis gra tuitously raises perplexities. Others see it as doubly significant; these philosophers think that it provides a base for criticism of the foundational view of knowledge which has dominated much of western thought since Descartes, and they think that it opens the door to a new and fruitful way to conceive of scientific progress in particular and of the nature and growth of knowledge in general.

READING: Как жить в мире, приметой которого стали книжки-советы из серии «Как убрать дом без химии», где авторы рекомендуют пользоваться содой, уксусом и лимонной кислотой, самыми что ни на есть продуктами крупнотоннажного химического производства? Насколько верно утверждение: «Чем опаснее химическое вещество, тем сложнее его название»? (Спойлер: ни насколько, иначе бы хлор для человеческого организма был бы безопаснее, чем собственная ДНК).Сегодня в российской, и в международной инфосфере мы сталкиваемся с огромным количеством легенд и страшных историй на ночь, связанных с химией. Как-то так произошло, что химия стала вызывать опасение и страх, расцвёл иррациональный страх перед всем «химическим» – хемофобия.Однако настоящие истории, связанные с открытием химических веществ, обнаружением их полезных свойств, гораздо интереснее придуманных легенд. К тому же, они смогут избавить читателя от иррационального страха перед всем химическим, заинтересовать химией и сделать так, чтобы все больше и больше людей перестали бы воспринимать эту науку как что-то опасное.

READING: My MSAdventures: Multiple Sclerosis: It’s Not Just a Disease—It’s an Adventure portrays the journey of a persistent and optimistic woman who has endured decades of complicated navigation through the sometimes turbulent currents of life with the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. Writing in a tone that captures the identical light-hearted and hopeful approach that has kept her afloat for decades, Becky Kennedy shares how she lives with a condition that could easily capsize her life. Proceeding topically rather than chronologically, the author’s narrative in My MSAdventures tells how the adventures began, reviews rehab and other “fun vacation spots,” and points out how adventures await one everywhere. As an added feature, an appendix provides a collection of useful Web sites. If you are one of the many who live with the diagnosis of MS and wonder how—despite your condition—you not only will endure, but also thrive, My MSAdventures promises to help you to see beyond the currently tough times to the prospects ahead of you. If, on the other hand, you are someone who cares for another who lives with MS, then My MSAdventures has an uplifting message of hope for you too. “If you have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), this book is a must. Becky shares her own personal trials and tribulations with the disease. I recommend this book not only to every patient of mine with MS, but also to their family and friends.”

READING: An in-depth examination of the corruption in the adoption industry; the fine line between black and gray market adoption; scams, coercion and exploitation; international adoption; foster care. Foreword by Evelyn Robinson, author, MA, Dip Ed, BSW. Myths that prevail in adoption primarily to replicate motherhood are examined. Myriad of adoption experts are interviewed and quoted throughout who agree that adoption has changed from being child-centered and altruistic social arrangement to one of finding solutions for the medical problem of infertility, putting the needs of adults, and those who profit from their desperation, before the needs of children who need homes. The conclusion asks if adoption can be fixed - the money aspect removed and government controls and regulations put in place - or abolished in favor of permanent guardianship, or informal adoption that does not involve the issuance of a falsified birth certificate present in current adoption to fortify myths of replicating creation. 284 pages 300 footnotes and indexed.

Into this chaos arrive two prune-faced administrators, the dean of the English department and a man from the college president's office, who say that the play must be canceled. When the dean is found murdered, Meg's house becomes a crime scene, and the only way to restore peace is to help Chief Burke solve the murders---while rescuing the student's dissertation and Michael's tenure---all before dashing off to the hospital to give birth to her twins! The one and only Donna Andrews continues to surprise and delight in this next knee-slapping adventure featuring Meg Langslow and all the eccentric characters that make up her world.
