HUGHIE AND HONEY BEAR In this charming childrens story set in the wilds of Canada, a mother bear awakes after a long winters hibernation to find that she has given birth to two adorable bear cubs. The twins, Hughie and Honey, get into all kinds of hilarious situations as Mother Bear does her best to teach them everything they will need to know as adult bears. Boniface Idziaks bear cubs are delightful, lovable characters that children are sure to fall in love with. Careful not to let his readers forget that bears, though cute, are not like family pets, and can be quite dangerous, the author writes from the bears perspective in such a way that children can understand that wild animals do not mean to hurt anyone, they just see the human world in a different way than we do. Hughie and Honey Bear, in addition to providing the pure entertainment of a well-written childrens story, is important for its educational value. Mr. Idziak draws upon his own considerable knowledge of the Black Bear in its natural environment to create an informative, engaging book to be enjoyed by children of all ages.
The Life and Times of Hughie Jennings, Baseball Hall of Famer
Author: Jack Smiles
Category: Sports & Recreation
Baseball player and manager Hugh Ambrose Jennings was the kind of colorful personality who inspired nicknames. Sportswriters called him “Ee-yah” for his famous coaching box cry and “Hustling Hughey” for his style of play. But to the nearly 100 other men from northeast Pennsylvania who followed Jennings from the coal mines to the major leagues, he was known as “Big Daddy,” not for his physical stature but for his iconic status to men desperate to escape the mines. The son of an immigrant coal miner from Pittston, Pennsylvania, Jennings himself became a miner at the ripe old age of 11 or 12. He eventually became a mule driver, earning $1.10 per day and dreaming of getting $5 per day for playing baseball on Saturday afternoons. From the rough-and-tumble world of semi-pro baseball to the major leagues, Jennings was driven to succeed and fearless in his pursuit of his dream. He joined the Baltimore Orioles in 1894 and went on to become manager of the Detroit Tigers during Ty Cobb’s heyday. Jennings’ story is emblematic of how the national pastime and the American dream came together for a generation of ballplayers in the early 20th century.
