1. Is It Good for the Jews? More Stories from the Old Country and the New (Large Print 16pt) - Adam Biro

With Is It Good for the Jews? Biro offers a sequel to his acclaimed collection of stories Two Jews on a Train. Through twenty-nine tales - some new, some old, but all finely wrought and rich in humor - Biro spins stories of characters coping with the vicissitudes and reverses of daily life, while simultaneously painting a poignant portrait of a world of unassimilated Jewish life that has largely been lost to the years. From rabbis competing to see who is the most humble, to the father who uses suicide threats to pressure his children into visiting, to three men berated by the Almighty himself for playing poker, Biro populates his stories with memorable characters and absurd - yet familiar - situations, all related with a dry wit and spry prose style redolent of the long tradition of Jewish storytelling. A collection simultaneously of foibles and fables, adversity and affection, Is It Good for the Jews? reminds us that if in the beginning was the word, then we can surely be forgiven for expecting a punch line to follow one of these days.

The Isle of Wight is an island in the English Channel, that sits about two miles off the coast of Hampshire; and you can get there by taking a ferry from Portsmouth, which is another fun place to visit. Wight has been home to poets Swinburne and Tennyson, and Queen Victoria built her summer residence and final home on the Isle of Wight. The Island practices wildlife conservation and has some fun attractions for kids that support this practice. It also has some of the richest quarries in all of Europe for hunting dinosaur fossils. There is a train you can take through tunnels to get from here to there, and you can hop off the train and and walk along the streets of Wight whenever you like!
Written by the award winning author, attorney and former teacher, Penelope Dyan, with photographs by John D. Weigand, you can use this ‘learn to read’ book to see just a bit of the Isle of Wight and practice your reading skills through word repetition, word repetition and rhyme. When you are done reading, watch the free music video that goes with this book on Bellissimavideo’s YouTube channel. The Isle of Wight is a must see, must visit place that’s only “A Ferry Away!”

Step back in time with this thrilling tale. Bat Conroy of World Press is the best news correspondent covering the Japanese invasion of China. But now it's his legendary reputation of getting the story first that's under serious attack. No matter how fast he files his war pieces, Bat ends up being scooped by Perry Lane of International Service, a reporter he's never seen near the fighting (or anywhere, for that matter). When the biggest story of the war comes Bat's way, he's given an ultimatum: outwit Lane and somehow get his story in first or be blackballed from ever working as a reporter again. Before his boss can fire him, Bat sets out to track down his enterprising competitor, little knowing that the real identity of the mysterious newshound is uncomfortably close to home!
