Maud the koala knows a visit to the doctor will help keep her healthy--so why is she so scared? In this story designed to engage early readers, charming characters combine with simple text, lively illustrations, and laugh-out-loud humor to help boost kids´ confidence and create lifelong readers! Maud gets nervous waiting at the doctor´s office for a checkup, so she looks to the fish tank in the waiting room for comfort. Fish don´t have to go to the doctor--she wishes she could be a fish. So when Maud has to get a shot, she shuts her eyes and pretends exactly that: She becomes an aquatic version of herself and pretends to swim through the sea, blowing bubbles and meeting other marine life, until she hears the doctor telling her it´s all done! J. E. Morris´s charming illustrations and comic-like panels make this a unique format with a narrative style perfect for storytime. Exciting, easy-to-read books are the stepping stone a young reader needs to bridge the gap between being a beginner and being fluent.
Billy´s got a lot on his mind that he´d rather not think about. So instead he watches David Attenborough (because Sir David´s got all the answers) and swims in the sea, just letting his mind drift.... So when new boy and nature fan Patrick Green starts at school and becomes Billy´s friend, things are different. Whilst swimming out at sea, a mackerel swims up to Billy´s face, blows bubbles at him and says, ´´Fish Boy!´´ Billy knows he must tell Patrick, because a crazy talking mackerel changes everything! 1.

The European economy is teetering this week, but there’s one place in Europe where the good times are rolling: Basel, the site of the continent’s oldest and biggest contemporary art fair.Next, thus far in Studio 360´s Redesigning Canada project, we´ve tried to gauge how much Americans know about their neighbor. (Not much.) Canadians told us what they think we should know about them. And we’ve received hundreds of submissions for our national slogan contest that put a new spin Canada´s image. Then, a couple years ago, when the writer Joel Stein found out he and his wife were expecting a son, he worried that he lacked the manliness to properly raise a boy. Just worrying about such a thing indicates that there’s a problem, and Joel admits that he prefers listening to show tunes to watching sports. He never learned to fish, hunt, or fist fight. So Joel set out to fix that: he rode with firefighters, survived three days of Army boot camp, and even got punched by an Ultimate Fighting champion. He wrote about these experiences in his new book, Man Made: A Stupid Quest for Masculinity.Following that, Sam Zimmerman was not an emotional man — except when it came to opera. He could discourse on Caruso and Callas at length, analyzing the range, the purity of the voice, and the mysterious quality called presence. He passed along that love to his son, Ed, who as an adult discovered something strange: it was a good tool for a corporate lawyer. In honor of Father´s Day, Ed remembers his father and the music that kept them together until the end.Then, today’s artificial limbs function better than they ever did, but from an aesthetic standpoint something is lacking. A standard prosthetic leg is a jointed metal pole with a plastic foot at the end. ´´There´s nothing wrong with the design,” says industrial designer Scott Summit. ´´It simply looks to me like a job that´s half complete.”And finally, Jesmyn Ward was at 1.

Ein Sommertag in London. Sie sitzen in der Orangerie des Kensington Palace, genießen ein leichtes Essen und den tollen Blick auf das Parkgrün und freuen sich auf einen ausgedehnten Shoppingbummel am Nachmittag. Oder steht Ihnen der Sinn eher nach Kultur? Dann starten Sie am besten im British Museum und folgen anschließend unserem Vorschlag für einen Rundgang durch Soho und Covent Garden. Vielleicht möchten Sie die Stadt aber lieber aus einer völlig anderen Perspektive kennenlernen? Haben Sie Lust auf eine Bootstour auf der Themse? Neben allen klassischen Sehenswürdigkeiten halten wir Ideen für ganz besondere Urlaubstage für Sie bereit. Alle wichtigen Sehenswürdigkeiten Londons präsentieren wir in fünf Kapiteln. Innerhalb jedes Kapitels gliedern sich die Sehenswürdigkeiten in drei Kategorien: ´´TOP 10´´, ´´Nicht verpassen!´´ und ´´Nach Lust und Laune!´´. So weiß man sofort, was man unbedingt anschauen sollte. Und nach der Besichtigung? Wie wäre es mit einer ´´kleinen Pause´´? Beispielsweise nach der Besichtigung der St Paul´s Cathedral und dem anstrengenden Aufstieg zur den Galerien in der mächtigen Kuppel. Sie müssen nur hinunter in die Krypta. Das Café dort serviert kleine herzhafte Gerichte sowie den traditionellen Afternoon Tea. Und beim Besuch des British Museum können Sie dort typische britische Küche probieren. Das ´´Great Court Restaurant´´ serviert Fish & Chips, Bubble & Squeak (gebratener Kartoffelbrei mit Gemüse) oder Roast Beef. Gute Adressen für Restaurants und Bars, Tipps für Events und zum Ausgehen sowie attraktive Einkaufen-Adressen runden jedes der fünf Kapitel ab. Zudem haben wir Ideen für erlebnisreiche Ausflüge und Spaziergänge zusammengestellt. Vorschläge zum Übernachten und wie Sie vor Ort gut zurechtkommen, erfahren Sie im Abschnitt ´´Praktische Informationen´´. Mit Atlasteil im Band und großem separaten Cityplan können Sie sich in London schnell und einfach orientieren.
Twenty-five years after its original publication, Do I Have to Say Hello? Aunt Delia´s Manners Quiz for Kids and Their Grown-ups is back, and do we and our kids all need it. In a series of lighthearted multiple-choice quizzes, alternate scenarios, and true-or-false questions, Delia Ephron, the author who brought us the best-selling How to Eat Like a Child, depicts a range of possibilities that reflect life as it is as well as life as it ought to be. Covering table manners, car manners, playground manners, school manners, and more, this is an audiobook that is sure to delight (and horrify) adults and children of all ages. Aunt Delia knows what makes the difference between a pleasant and an excruciating visit to a friend´s house in the company of a young child. She knows the proper order in which the following actions take place: (a) Throw up; (b) Get out of the car; (c) Ask Uncle Jerry to pull over. In short, she is practical and basic: She does not get into fish forks, but she knows what to do with bubble gum. She also deals with such things as kindness, sharing, consideration, generosity, and diplomacy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carol Kane.
