Elmo and friends are going hiking! As they walk in the woods, they explore the edges of a stream and pond, sit in a meadow, and learn how to look and listen for clues to the creatures that live in these places. Along the way they also learn to take care of nature by staying on trails, not picking flowers or feeding the animals. When Elmo, Grover, Zoe, Big Bird, Ernie, and Bert ask about what lives in the places they see, their trail guide gives clues to the answers. Readers can guess along with them and then lift the die-cut flap in each spread to reveal the creature and its name.

What Men Live By We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not abideth in death. 1E pistle St. John iii. 14. Whose hath the worlds goods, and beholdeth his brother in need, and shutteth up his compassion from him, how doth the love of God abide in him! My little children, let us not love in word, neither with the tongue; but in deed and truth. iii. 17-18. Love is of God; and every ne that loveth is begotten of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. iv. 7-8. No man hath beheld God at any time; if we love one another, God abideth in us. iv. 12. God is love; and he that abideth in love abideth in God, and God abideth in him. iv, 16. If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar; for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen! iv. 20. A SHOEMAKER named Simon, who had neither house norland of his own, lived with his wife and children in a peasants hut, and earned his living by his work. Work was cheap, but bread was dear, and what he earned he spent for food. The man and his wife had but one sheepskin coat between them for winter wear, and even that was torn to tatters, and this was the second year he had been wanting to buy sheep-skins for a new coat. Before wiater Simon saved up a little money: a three-rouble note lay hidden in his wifes box, and five roubles and twenty kopeks were owed him by customers in the village. So one morning he prepared to go to the village to buy the sheep-s Mns. He put on over his shirt his wifes wadded nankeen jacket, and over that he put his own cloth coat. He took the three-rouble note in his pocket, cut himself a stick to serve as a staff, and started off after breakfast. Ill collect the five roubles that are due to me, thought he, add the three I have One hundred kopeks make(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
FBI agent Manny Tanno thought he had left his tribe and the Pine Ridge Reservation behind him years ago. But now with a cold case unearthed in the hot plains sun, he knows that the past never really goes away. In Badlands National Park, there is a desolate area the Lakota refer to as the Stronghold. General Custer called it hell on earth. During World War II, the Army Air Corps used it as a bombing range. At the end of the war, many unexploded ordnances were swallowed up in its sweltering sands. But that¿s not all that¿s buried there¿ Sixty-five years after the war, the Sioux tribe has contracted an ordnance removal company to defuse any remaining ammunition in the Stronghold. When the company finds a human arm near a live bomb, Tanno and the Tribal police are called to investigate. As the body is exhumed, two more are discovered. The remains are close together, but the murders were decades apart¿and the story behind them is about to blow up¿

Cynthia Heimel has been described by the Chicago Tribune as "perhaps our funniest war correspondent on the war between the sexes"; her wisdom on dating includes such gems as: "My new rule is to never believe a person is interested until you feel his tongue down your throat." If You Can't Live Without Me, Why Aren't You Dead Yet?! shows Heimel at her wicked best. When sex pales in comparison to watching sports, when ostensibly adult men still don't understand why women need to work, when city-chic black and arugula salads have been taken over by Middle America, Cynthia Heimel is there to remind us that if we can't remake the world (or even the loved ones who are driving us crazy), we can at least laugh at it. Like a hip Erma Bombeck or a Dorothy Parker for today, she is an antidote to an absurd world for smart, sane women. If You Can't Live Without Me, Why Aren't You Dead Yet?! -- now a national best-seller -- has caused The Boston Globe to hail Cynthia Hiemel as "a goddess and a role model." "Brilliant, ballsy ... wise and loving ... She makes me feel militantly on my own side. What pleasure; what relief." -- Mademoiselle
Is a pretty lie better than the ugly truth? Harlan Coben published his first Myron Bolitar thriller, Deal Breaker, in 1995, introducing a hero that would captivate millions. Over the years we have watched Myron walk a tight rope between sports agent, friend, problem solver and private eye, his big heart quick to defend his client's interests so fiercely that he can't help but jump in to save them, no matter the cost. When former tennis star Suzze T and her rock star husband, Lex, encounter an anonymous Facebook post questioning the paternity of their unborn child, Lex runs off, and Suzze - at eight months pregnant - asks Myron to save her marriage, and perhaps her husband's life. But when he finds Lex, he also finds someone he wasn't looking for: his sister-in-law, Kitty, who along with Myron's brother abandoned the Bolitar family long ago. As Myron races to locate his missing brother while their father clings to life, he must face the lies that led to the estrangement - including the ones told by Myron himself. If we thought we knew Myron Bolitar, Coben now proves we didn't. An electric, stay-up-all night thriller that unfolds at a breakneck pace, Live Wire proves that Harlan Coben still has the ability to shock us anew.
This book is based on the simple idea that every writer has a "tool box." Instead of awls and hammers, a writer's toolbox contains words, imagination, a love of books, a sense of story, and ideas for how to make the writing live and breathe. I wrote this book to give you some practical strategies to throw into your toolbox. I hope you'll try them, because these are ideas that can make you a better writer.This book is titled Live Writing, and you may be wondering what I mean by that. Most of us have read (and written!) the opposite kind of writing-dull, drab language that sounds about as interesting as a city phone book. By "live writing" I mean the kind of writing that has a current running through it-energy, electricity, juice. When we read "live writing", the words seem to lift off the page and burrow deep inside us.
Harlan Coben has risen to the top of bestseller lists worldwide, attracting voracious audiences for his peerless novels of domestic suspense as well as those featuring his fan-favorite sports agent, Myron Bolitar. Now in Live Wire, he offers a knock-your-socks-off novel that will electrify all his fans: Myron¿s family takes center stage. Myron Bolitar has always dreamed about the voluptuous femme fatale walking into his office and asking for help. The woman standing in his doorway has killer curves all right: She¿s eight months pregnant, which kind of ruins the fantasy. Former tennis star Suzze T and her rock star husband, Lex, are both clients, and over the years Myron has negotiated his share of contracts for the power pair. But now Lex has disappeared and a very pregnant Suzze is in tears, fearing the online rumors questioning the baby¿s paternity have driven away the man she swears is the child¿s father. For Myron, questions of fatherhood couldn¿t hit closer to home, as his dad, Al, clings to life; the brother who abandoned them all years ago is in trouble; and Myron¿s teenage nephew needs an authority figure. Myron is soon forced to confront deep secrets in Suzze¿s past; his family¿s mortality ¿ and before Live Wire is over, his own.

They are collected in three anthologies: How to Live God¿s Provisions, How to Live God¿s Challenges, and How to Live God¿s Fullness. The back cover of the book gives you a foretaste of my rhyme and meter, and a thumbnail of what to expect. Come, glorify God with me!

Some fifty years ago, while a cub reporter, Jay Barbree caught space fever the night that Sputnik passed over Georgia. He moved to the then-sleepy village of Cocoa Beach, Florida, right outside Cape Canaveral, and began reporting on rockets that fizzled as often as they soared.

Tolstoy wrote some incredible novels, but these little fables are quick to read and simply told. The most memorable one describes the fate of a man who lets his greed get the best of him. These four short stories, (What Men Live By, Three Questions, The Coffee-House of Surat, and How Much Land Does a Man Need?) are well worth reading, re-reading, and mulling over.
