Parents please be aware that this book has 20 cute photographs of guinea pigs and words that are aimed at early/beginner readers. My name is Virinia Downham and I am a qualified Librarian. I am also the mother of two children and my dearest wish is that every child will learn the magic of being able to read. I have created an easy first reader to read with your child. I hope that you will encourage your child to read along with you as this will reinforce the words that they see. It takes roughly 7 times for a child to see a word and recognize it so please parents read this book with your child at least that many times. I hope you enjoy looking at 20 adorable guinea pig pictures and that both you and your child will spend lots of quality time reading My First Book On Guinea Pigs together.
DISCOVER THE WORLD OF LIFE AS GOD CREATED IT! The field of biology focuses on living things, from the smallest microscopic protozoa to the largest mammal. In this book you will read and explore the life of plants, insects, spiders and other arachnids, life in water, reptiles, birds, and mammals, highlighting God's amazing creatio. You will learn about the following and so much more: How does biological classification give each different type of plant or animal a unique name? In what ways are seeds spread around the world? What food does the body use for long-term storage of energy? How did biologists learn how the stomach digested food? What plant gave George de Mestral the idea for Velcro? For most of history, biologists used the visible appearance of plants or animals to classify them. They grouped plants or animals with similar-looking features into families. Starting in the 1990s, biologists have extracted DNA and RNA from cells as a guide to how plants or animals should be grouped. Like visual structures, these reveal the underlying design or creation. The newest book in our Exploring series, Exploring the World of Biology is a fascinating look at life - from the smallest proteins and spores, to the complex life systems of humans and animals.
Reverend Margaret Anne Freeman was born in 1927 with a serious and complicated heart defect, Fallot's Tetralogy. She was not expected to live very long at all, let alone walk or have children. She defied expectations, and today works as a 76 year old retired priest in Norfolk. This autobiography tells how she gained and kept her Christian faith during war and countless personal tragedies, whilst breaking records as she went. She became the first adult to survive open-heart surgery, and the first such survivor to have children. It also tells of the enormous struggle she had over the Ordination of women in the Church of England. This is an enthralling story that will grip the reader with every turn of the page.

THE BOY WHO GOT AWAY WAS ALL MAN NOW Once Melissa Richardson had been the most popular girl in school and Charles Avery had been the shy brain with a hopeless crush. Now Melissa was alone, pregnant and in need of a job—and her new employer was Charles Avery! Melissa's shock at seeing Charles again was matched only by her mortification at the attraction he roused in her. Her former admirer had grown into a handsome, successful hunk—and a widowed single dad with three adorable children in need of a nanny. Hiding her feelings for her boss as well as the embarrassing truth about her situation seemed a wise professional move. But could she resist Charles's charm and three disarming kids who didn't want a nanny, but a mommy?
In the aftermath of the Battle of Britain, airmen filled a small town where pioneering plastic surgeon Archibald McIndoe established revolutionary surgical and therapeutic treatments. For the child Liz Byrski, growing up in East Grinstead, the burnt faces of these airmen filled her nightmares. In her late 60s, Liz returned to make peace with her memories and to speak not only with the survivors—known as the Guinea Pig Club—but with the nurses who played a vital and unorthodox role in their treatment, sometimes at a significant personal cost.
Social Development And Our Connections To Other Species

What role does an animal play in a child's developing sense of self? Do children and animals interact in ways no longer recognizable to adults? Children and Animals addresses these and many other intriguing questions by revealing the interconnected lives of the inhabitants of the preschool classroom—an environment abounding in childish verbal and nonverbal interactions with birds, turtles, toads, snakes, bugs, and other creatures.The child-animal interactions captured here suggest that the young child's developing sense of self and interactive skills are honed and enriched by the presence of nonhuman creatures. In touching and playing with animals, in talking to them or in silent presence, children reveal feelings and objectives they share with these important members of their daily lives. A privileged route by which these meanings are expressed and made conscious is pretend play, in which children translate the shapes and moods of the animal body into their own. As adults, we tend to marginalize the role of the animal body and animals' presence in our lives. In contrast, children see animals as co-conspirators, as creatures to contend with, as fascinatingly different yet similar “other beings.” Children's sense of connection to animals provides insights into social development—and into our ideas about what it means to become human.Based on Gene Myers' study of two dozen children, and containing excerpts from children's dialogues with their nonhuman playroom cohabitants, this book is a delightful and rewarding opportunity to learn how children craft a sense of self that differentiates them from the animal world. It captures in a child's own words the importance of animals, birds, and reptiles to the child's growing social self.Parents, educators, and students of early childhood social development, as well as those intrigued by the intersection of human experience and the natural environment, will find this book to be a rewarding reading experience.

The Barnacle sisters--Bell, Bridget, Benita, Beryl, Belinda and Beth--have been raised in New York bytheir eccentric, self-made father in a fabulous, gigantic Fifth Avenue apartment that, encrusted with Barry Barnacle's scientific collections, feels like a little piece of the Museum of Natural History transplanted to the other side of Central Park. Now that most of the sisters have come of age, Barry Barnacle proposes a contest, a test of wits and wills that should at long last settle what is to Barry the most essential of all questions: nature, or nurture? Whichever of his daughters can most spectacularly carry on his name will inherit his fortune; the others are out cold. It's a proposition to set a Jane Austen heroine on her ear, but in Galt Niederhoffer's A Taxonomy of Barnacles, the Barnacle girls are up to the challenge. Throw the girls' mother Bella and their childhood crushes--the Finch twins next door--into the mix and the stage is set for a completely inventive and utterly fresh social comedy that is as beautifully written as it is unique.
