With a simple, rhyming text and beautifully reproduced paintings, NO ONE SAW explores modern art. Each painting highlights the way in which the artist looked at the world in his or her own way. One look at the oversized details of her calla lilies convinces us hat no one saw flowers like Georgia O'Keeffe. A city becomes art when looked at by Kandinsky. And Miro shows us the flight of a bird like we've never seen it before. The message is a clear one: no two people see the world in exactly the same way. There is beauty waiting to be seen and shared by you, so be creative and, more important, be yourself!Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 10/1/2001Pages: 32Reading Level: Age 5 and Up

At 22, as he prepares to enter the clergy, Charles Darwin is offered the position of naturalist on the HMS Beagle’s expedition to South America. But in 1831, a sea voyage is as unthinkable as a modern-day foray into outer space. His father objects to the outlandish scheme, but with the help of a persuasive uncle, Darwin eventually receives permission to sail. And so he sets off, fully expecting to take his orders at the end of the two-year expedition. Instead, he returns in five, a full-fledged genius who would one day write a book that truly changed the world. What Mr. Darwin Saw is a lively and accessible look at the journey of the HMS Beagle. Readers learn about life on board the ship for Darwin, the captain and crew, and the expedition’s artist; their encounters with slavery; how specimens were collected; the scientific basis for the Biblical flood; Darwin’s adventures in Galapagos, Australia, and other countries and continents; and much more.

Think Confident, Be Confident for Teens" offers young readers a teen-focused, breakthrough program for eliminating self-doubt and increasing confidence and self-esteem. Studies show that self-confidence plummets during the teenage years, when complex social relationships begin to take center stage and teens begin to assert their independence from parents and families. As a result, teens become more vulnerable to peer pressure, self-doubt, depression, and anxiety. "Think Confident, Be Confident for Teens" is a cognitive therapy guide teens can use to recognize and reframe self-doubt and "give up" thoughts in order to replace them with more confident, positive thoughts about themselves. The authors adapt the strategies from their book "Think Confident, Be Confident" to situations teens face: social life, performing at school and work, family life, and difficult life events.Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 11/3/2011Pages: 200Reading Level: Age 13 and Up

Teachers try to help their students learn. But why do they make the particular teaching choices they do? What resources do they draw upon? What accounts for the success or failure of their efforts? In How We Think, esteemed scholar and mathematician, Alan H. Schoenfeld, proposes a groundbreaking theory and model for how we think and act in the classroom and beyond. Based on thirty years of research on problem solving and teaching, Schoenfeld provides compelling evidence for a concrete approach that describes how teachers, and individuals more generally, navigate their way through in-the-moment decision-making in well-practiced domains. Applying his theoretical model to detailed representations and analyses of teachers at work as well as of professionals outside education, Schoenfeld argues that understanding and recognizing the goal-oriented patterns of our day to day decisions can help identify what makes effective or ineffective behavior in the classroom and beyond.Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 10/7/2010Pages: 264
Bundle includes: Does A Bear Wear Boots? + Does A Woodpecker Use A Hammer + Does A Camel Cook Spaghetti? + Does A Beaver Sleep In A Bed? + Does A Panda Go To School? Does A Bear Wear Boots?: This title in the Think About... series shows that while every animal needs things to protect it from the elements, only people can produce and choose to wear different kinds of clothing. A funny, kid-like question ("Does an ox wear an overcoat?") shows the animal in a silly scenario (e.g., sporting a purple coat). A turn of the page reveals why animals don't need clothes via a few facts about each animal's physiology, habitat, and habits. The pattern follows for a chimp, donkey, bear, and duck. Next, the function and options in human clothing is presented. A final "Think About" spread presents kids, parents, and teachers with activities that relate to and extend each book's subject matter. Does A Woodpecker Use A Hammer?: This title in the Think About... series explores and explains that while some animals do indeed use tools, only people have developed things that make it possible to do things that their bodies cannot. A funny, kid-like question ("Does a woodpecker use a hammer?") is shown with a silly scenario (a woodpecker in a toolbelt), and a few thoughts and facts about that animal's use of their body as a type of tool. Other animals are featured, including those that might use a stick or some such as a tool, which then leads into an exploration of how humans create, re-use, and refine tools to solve problems and accomplish tasks. Does A Camel Cook Spaghetti?: This title in the Think About... series explores and explains that while every animal eats, only people can cook. A funny, kid-like question ("Does a camel cook?") is paired with a silly scenario (a camel with a chef's toque and saucepan). A turn of the page reveals the answer (camels grazing on grass and leaves), and a few facts about that animal's food and eating habits. The pattern follows through for a squirrel, raccoon, bear, chimp, and a dog, culminating with people producing, preparing, and distributing the food they eat. A final "think about" spread presents kids, parents, and teachers with activities that relate to and extend each book's subject matter. Does A Beaver Sleep In A Bed?: This title explores and explains that while every animal sleeps, only some have beds. A funny, kid-like question ("Does a beaver sleep in a bed?") is paired with a silly scenario (a beaver gnawing at a headboard). A turn of the page reveals the answer, a picture of the critter in an authentic setting (a beaver asleep in his lodge), and a few facts about that animal's sleepytime habits and habitat. The pattern follows with a baboon, polar bear, bumblebee, horse, and dog, culminating with people in different kinds of beds. A final "Think About" spread presents kids, parents, and teachers with activities that relate to and extend each book's subject matter. Does A Panda Go To School?: This title in the Think About... series explores and explains that while animals can do and learn some things, only people can fully participate in all the things that happen at school. A funny, kid-like question ("Does an armadillo go to school?") is shown with a silly scenario (armadillo seated in a story circle), and a few thoughts and facts about that animal's non-school-oriented habits (e.g., an armadillo can't sit and listen to a story). A panda and ostrich are also featured. Then we see what a chimp could (painting, snack time, monkey bars!) and could not do (read, sing, say words) at school. A final "think about" spread presents kids, parents, and teachers with activities that relate to and extend each book's subject matter.

We weren't always like this. We used to be average New York City high school sophomores. Until our homeroom went for flu shots. We were prepared for some side effects. Maybe a headache. Maybe a sore arm. We definitely didn't expect to get telepathic powers. But suddenly we could hear what everyone was thinking. Our friends. Our parents. Our crushes. Now we all know that Tess is in love with her best friend, Teddy. That Mackenzie cheated on Cooper. That, um, Nurse Carmichael used to be a stripper. Since we've kept our freakish skill a secret, we can sit next to the class brainiac and ace our tests. We can dump our boyfriends right before they dump us. We know what our friends really think of our jeans, our breath, our new bangs. We always know what's coming. Some of us will thrive. Some of us will crack. None of us will ever be the same. So stop obsessing about your ex. We're always listening.Book Details:Format: HardcoverPublication Date: 3/11/2014Pages: 336Reading Level: Age 12 and Up
