Carry on Mr Bowditch
Carry on Mr Bowditch

Xdarkblade_236azn, April 4, 2008

Carry On, Mr. Bowditch, is a great story, based on the real story and life of Mr. Nataniel Bowditch, American Navigator, and considered one of the best lunar mathmaticians EVER. The story recounts his early life to his older ages. I loved it right when I started it, and I am sure that other people will too.

The Cat Who Went to Heaven by Elizabeth Coatsworth
The Cat Who Went to Heaven

Xdarkblade_236azn, April 3, 2008

This book I read just a couple weeks ago, and I don't think there has been another so beautifully written story, touching my heart with every chapter! As you have/will learn, cats were not able to enter heaven, for they refused to pay homage to the Buddha. But when the artist includes a painting of a cat in his art for a Buddhist temple, the priest refuses it and decrees it must be destroyed. But what would come was a miracle, and a beautiful one it was. It brought me on the verge of tears.

The White Stag by Kate Seredy
The White Stag

Xdarkblade_236azn, April 3, 2008

THE WHITE STAG is a very exciting book, full of beautiful illustrations which was also by the author. The book will take you on a dazzling journey of the Huns to their promise land, led by the Red Eagle, Attila, son of Bendeguz. As the Huns traveled, they were ready to fight anything in their path, as they were anxious to get to their new land. Accompanied by drawings that emphasize the book a lot, this book is for anyone ready for a new adventure.

Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices by Paul Fleischman
Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices

Xdarkblade_236azn, April 3, 2008

I think that these are some of the best poems written to be spoken aloud by two voices. I have tried with a friend, and no doubt these are some of the most fun and creative poems I have ever seen. With poetry all of insects, from grasshoppers to a diary of a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly, are sure to excite anybody from young first graders to adults. If you are looking for a book of poems that you could share with somebody, this is it.
