5.0 out of 5 stars How's your year going?, August 31, 2005
"It's never too late" would be an appropriate cliché for The Best Year of Your Life. Although some cliché's are present such as, "you have to put your best foot forward", this book goes beyond cliché's to specific ways to begin your best year yet.

Broken down into three categories, author Debbie Ford gives personal examples, analogies, and asks questions to bring out your desired goals and reasonable ways to achieve them.

Her conversational writing style mixed with inspiring but thought provoking questions motivate you to focus and want to better your attitude and consequently, yourself.

Far from a self-serving manual, Ford encourages us to also be the best for those around us.

Like any good learning experience, it comes with assignments. These however, will only be graded by the difference it makes in your coming year.

1.0 out of 5 stars Teeny, tiny tingly tales, September 14, 2001
If I could give this a negative rating I would! Although I consider myself open-minded this book is inappropriate for the targeted age. It's illustrations are borderline obscene with sexual innuendos, while the story contains words above the intended reading level's audience. The stories are intended to be "tongue-in-cheek" but end up being just plain scary and innappropriate for preschoolers. There are plenty of other rhying books aavailable for children of this age, don't waste your time on this one.

Teachers, Children's Libarians, this is a must have book for your reference!
Whether you only know the author, title, illustrator, or subject this book will assist. There is even a bibliographic guide to detail the subject headings of a book. Easy to use, and the greatest tool for planning theme related book activites for children.
Well worth the investment as it is a never ending resource.

4.0 out of 5 stars Skeleton Man, August 28, 2001
This review is from: Skeleton Man (Library Binding)
Prepare to be scared! Although based on a Native American tale the author makes you feel as though Molly (the main character) could be anyone in your classroom. When she wakes up to find her parents are not home and that days later they still do not arrive, the eerie tale begins. Molly learns she must trust her intuition and dreams that lead her to know the truth about what is happening to her and what has happened to her parents. Her strength and initiative (warrior instincts) are what gets her through. Not the ending I expected with a children's book , but showing girls can be strong and solve problems makes this a book I would recommend to those who dare to be scared.
