Book Review

This one is really a little treasure. It gives one the best "learning blocks" for getting the idea of peace and humanitarianism in the world today. 
I also love the details the author gives about each of her choices and the words they themselves spoke.
The world today definitely needs more books like this.

Hidden City: Poems Of Urban Wildlife by Sarah Grace Tuttle

Book Review

Utterly charming with beautiful illustrations. I found it educational, told me things I didn't know. Well constructed and sturdy binding. I noticed it was more geared to the eastern part of the United States, a western edition would be an excellent companion book for any young readers library.

Inside Art Review

I love the inside artwork, you really have to really look at the whole page to see all the details.

Book Review

The pictures are gorgeous and glossy, it just seems I can't quite find the ones in my yard in this book.  Aside from that it will be going on the trips out and such.

Excellent up close shots with great detail

Compact World Atlas 7th Edition by DK

Book Review

This is just what I was looking for, except I think the pages should be centered rather than spliced so far into the binding one has to nearly ruin the binding to see something.  I love it otherwise though.  Simple and easy.  If you are looking for something with huge amounts of details of countries then this is not for you but if you are wanting something that is going to show you quickly where something is, even if it is in the binding then this one is for you

A little unusual setup.  Modern words but I can honestly understand the King James version better

Far too bland for a Bible

Book Review

I would highly suggest this as a companion to any Christian Bible, no matter the denomination.  Its not particularly favoring one over the other which is excellent.  I would have liked a table of contents though but you can make your own

I like the idea of the peeling away of the layers

Field Guide To Birds Western Region

Book Review

A wonderful guide for a more experienced birder, not really something for good field use though, flipping back and fourth would get bothersome especially in a rough place.  Much better to leave at home and refer to at leisure.  The pictures in it are gorgeous though, of all the bird books I have I must say the images here are the best.  Information is good, a good hand sized book.  You could I suppose take it with you on a trip if you don't mind taking a moment to sit down and file through it.  Not something I would  recommend to an amateur birder though, it would simply be too hard to use in the field, an excellent guide for back yard birding for all levels though
