"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Editorial Reviews

Review

Ina day in age where the focus is on diverse books I love how you haveincorporated children, both male and female, of different races. That issomething extremely important that we stress in the library. I would recommendthis book from ages 3-10, I feel that even though it could work for youngerstudents the mechanics of the sport included could work for the older kids. Theaspect of team building featured in Nicks Very First Day of Baseball isvaluable lesson not only for baseball but for school and life. After I readthem I passed them along to a 10 student that frequents the library, and isobsessed with baseball. I will be sure to pass along his review later on. Oneof my favorite parts of the books was the informational facts peppered in the books.The baseball card of Cy Young and the word blurb in TGIT is a greatincorporation of true history. The mechanics of the sport related to everydayobjects such as a windmill, with a picture is a useful comparison. Thequestions at the end are not only Nicks favorite part, they were mine as well!Reading comprehension is a huge part of my job, a teachers job or a parentsjob. By incorporating it into the book you made everyone's job a lot easier!

Iwork at both a university library and a public library.  I have found that with children's books,especially, the cover artwork is a huge factor as far as how often a book iscirculated, and I found the artwork for "Magic Bat Day" is veryappealing.   If you can catch thereader's attention with the cover, you can hook the reader with the content. Iwill definitely give it a good look when it comes in and try to provide morefeedback then. I will also pass it along to the Children's Department managerfor consideration of inclusion in the collection.

"Ireceived your newest Hometown All Stars book and I think the libraries willlike it. The statewide summer reading committee has created Pinterest pages forthe books we're suggesting for the 2016 program and all three of your bookshave been chosen to be listed there."

Iwas just looking at Nick's very first day of baseball...I like the idea oflooking for baseballs or counting things in the page... It is game-like andprovides a playful outlet in addition to traditional reading and education ofthe sport.  I think it is designed wellfor your bedtime reading audeince.  Whatkids don't understand, perhaps they will ask a parent or a teacher. The wordslearned at the end of the book are effective like a glossary.
