Manga Guide Physiology

I think The Manga Guide to Physiology is a painless way to introduce students and other learners to physiology. The thick, Japanese-style (black and white) comic-book style is fun and engaging, as it explains how the major systems of the human body actually work. It...

Q&A a Day For Moms: A 5-Year Journal

Q&A a Day for Moms This book is small and easy to carry or take with you and I also love the lovely floral hardcover. I like how simple it is to add a quick thought for the day, but after five years of doing so, it will amount to a lot of memories. It also gives me...

Edgar And The Tree House Of Usher

I really liked Edgar and the Tree House of Usher. This cute tale shows that hanging out with your sister is not a bad thing. It (very) loosely follows the storyline of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher," as Edgar the raven tries to play in his friend's...
