5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this one., June 30, 2016

Sensational. Leave this on the coffee table. It will explain recent events to your children in pictures better than you possibly could in words.

Great for a homeschool history class.

Dexas 8-Inch TPE Pop Strainer, Red
Price: $9.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Sad. Not as good as the one it replaces., June 30, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The handle on this new model is much shorter and less robust than the handle on my old Dexas model. This one replaces the old model (9 years old) but the handle is wimpy and short. It will not stretch across half a double sink for hands-free draining like its older version, and even if it did stretch, it's so wimpy I don't think it would hold.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming scenes featuring pianos, June 30, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is well and lovingly written. A pleasure to read.

This book is perfect for dipping into, reading one or two cheerful stories, and then putting down again. A story might be two pages long, or it might be eight. But they won't bog you down and you'll put the book down energized and just a bit more knowledgeable and impressed with pianos.

The Tempest (Simply Shakespeare)

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Folger's and Barron's for this play, June 30, 2016
I am reviewing the Simply Shakespeare edition, NOT The Tempest.

The Tempest is not my favorite play to read or work on. I have no use for Prospero, I think it's ridiculous that all the names are so similar, and Caliban is obnoxious. Ariel is obnoxious, too.

Having said that, one of my sons chose it, so I had to find a version that would make studying it less of a chore. I got this version, Barron's, and Folger's (I learned the play with Folger's.)

What I appreciate about the Simply Shakespeare edition is as follows:

+ Good background information about the play, including cadences and why Shakespeare wrote the way he did.
+ Introductions for each act, including things to watch for.
+ Activities after each act, to engage interested learners. Several good ideas.
+ Repeatedly emphasizes Shakespeare's use of magic
+ Points out many examples of Shakespeare writing stage directions into the dialog

This is the best of the three versions I read to prep for reading this with my family.

I enjoyed these unusual stories. Many of them were romances with happy endings, several supernatural stories. Jewel heists are a prominent theme.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting - 400 years of war. This is how it l, June 16, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I live in the west and have traveled to many of these places, seen he layout of the land. It's good to read how the offense and defense were laid out. Many of these places could be attacked the same way today - little has changed. Likewise, many of these places could be successfully defended the same way. Interesting.

I wanted more on the Comanches and apaches after reading this book.

This is good to have on the shelf for preppers. You *probably* won't need it, but it gets your kids thinking. Where would be a good place to site these? How to coordinate IEDs with sniper fire? Think ahead.

Good for high school civics. Scalia is entertaining, and his dissents are a pleasure to read aloud. Good training for logic, civics, American history students.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good map - very clear, June 16, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a good map of the Roman world. I hung it directly below another map, the early roman world, for comparison purposes. The early churches are only on the right-hand sidebar.

Useful to see the areas of the Roman world - good for reading Xenophon or Marcus Aurelius. Asset for studying Biblical archaeology.
