4. You Should Be Dancing! - Penelope Dyan

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 9.20  - Click book title for availability and further details

There really is nothing quite like a song, unless you are curling up with a good book, or maybe watching a sunset. Music is one of the joys of life; and where there is music, there is dancing. So you should be dancing! Award winning author, attorney and former teacher, Penelope Dyan, believes learning, like music and dancing, should be fun; and this is why she writes 'learn to read' books for kids that contain kid friendly illustrations, large print that is easy for little eyes to see, and words that build on the basic reading skills of word recognition, word repetition and rhyme. With these things in mind, she created this book, 'You Should Be Dancing,' inspired by a comment she heard from the USA's First Lady, Michelle Obama, on a late night television show. When she was asked what exercise she liked the best, she said she liked to dance, because it was fun. (And that was all it took to get author Penelope Dyan writing!) To have even more learning fun (and exercise) you can also sing and dance to the music video that has the same name as this book on the Bellissimavideo YouTube Channel.

Some claim the Loch Ness monster was first reported in 565 A.D. when, according to legend, St. Columba turned away a giant beast threatening a man in the Ness River that flows into the lake.

This is one of two books they created for kids about the Loch Ness. (Be sure to read, "On The Loch!

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 9.20  - Click book title for availability and further details

Urquhart Castle sits near the banks of Loch Ness. It was one of Scotland's largest castles, and its ruins include a tower house commanding views of the famous loch and Great Glen. The castle has experienced a lot of conflict throughout its 500 years as a medieval fortress. It's history from the 13th to 17th centuries was particularly bloody. Following the invasion of Edward I, it fell into English hands, was reclaimed and lost again. Then in the 14th century, it was part of the Scots' struggle for independence. It came under the control of Robert the Bruce after he became King of Scots, and in the 15th and 16th centuries the castle and glen were raided from the west by the ruthless MacDonald Lords of the Isles. Now none of that means much to a kid. What is important to a kid is the mystery and the fun of a place, and this is a place where the imagination of a kid will know no bounds. Practice reading skills through word recognition, word repetition and rhyme as you look though the camera lens of photographer, John D. Weigand. Award winning author, attorney and former teacher, Penelope Dyan, and John D. Weigand know how to keep a kid's interest, because they see through the eyes of a child.

11. Sir Henry Parkes The Australian Colossus (Large Print 16pt) - Stephen Dando-Collins

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 31.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Sir Henry Parkes: Father of Federation, Premier of NSW, Statesman, Visionary, Political Leader, Poet, Humanist May 27, 2015 brings the 200th anniversary of the birth of Sir Henry Parkes. After he died, the London Times described him as 'a colonial colossus.' Henry Parkes received little schooling and worked on a rope - walk, breaking stones, as an ivory and bone turner, ironmonger, labourer and on the wharves before trying business life and ultimately politics. He and his first wife travelled to Australia on an assisted passage. Parkes steadily educated himself, reading voraciously and widely, including all the great poets. There has never been anyone else like Sir Henry Parkes in Australian public life. Not only was he the father of federation. His friends included Thomas Carlyle, fellow poet Lord Tennyson and British Prime Minister Gladstone. He convinced Florence Nightingale to send trained nurses to Australia. He conceived the international rabbit competition which led to the Pasteur affair and put Australia at the forefront of microbiology. He encouraged talented men to enter politics. Yet he shunned the limelight, rarely attending social functions. Whenever he received begging letters, (which he did, daily), Parkes always wrote back enclosing money. No wonder he went bankrupt three times! Yet he was Premier of NSW 5 times, leaving its finances well in the black every time. He married three times, the last time to a 23 - year - old beauty. Clearly, Parkes loved women, and they loved him. He encouraged women to attend political meetings, even though they didn't have the vote. NSW Parliament House dining room was managed by a husband and wife; when the husband died, Parliament wanted to fire his widow, but Parkes stood up for her, saying she was perfectly capable of managing the dining room on her own, which she did for years to come. But not everyone loved Sir Henry; he had a long - running feud with poet Henry Lawson's mother after Parkes wouldn't give young Lawson the help she demanded and he constantly wrestled with political aspirants chasing his seat.

Her husband took a terrible secret to his grave. How did Nola Duncan not know? The day Nola Duncan married the charismatic scientist Dr Michael Westfield in 1981 was the happiest day of her life. Michael, a senior academic, was Nola s 'perfect man' a good father; a wonderful host, cook and raconteur; a devoted husband and caring lover; a good friend and a committed Christian. Throughout their thirty - year marriage, Michael, a deeply romantic man, wrote Nola copious love notes, letters and poems. So when he died suddenly of a cardiac arrest in 2010, her grief was profound. The funeral service overflowed with people who loved and admired him; the eulogies were effusive. Heartbroken, Nola picked her way through early widowhood and on the first anniversary of his death she buried his ashes in a plot with room for hers. Then she set about clearing out his things. In a box marked 'research papers' Nola found something that would shatter her life; 741 love letters between Michael and his lover, evidence of his passionate six - year affair with one of his doctoral students, a young married woman 23 years his junior.

The lovers believed their affair was the 'Great Love' and their 'soul marriage' God - sanctioned; oh, the hypocrisy! Until now, Nola has remained silent about Michael s betrayal of everything and everyone they knew. There are many unanswered questions in this story: why did he keep the letters? Can a man love two women at once? But there s one she knows she will always be asked how could she not have known? But hand on her heart, she didn't.

14. Fight or Flight - Penelope Dyan

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 9.20  - Click book title for availability and further details

We are all governed by our autonomic nervous system, and neuroscience tells us our bodies sometimes just react to situations with which we are faced. When we are faced with something that frightens us, for example, we may go into what is called a fight or flight mode; and when we are in a calmer place then we might sit and digest and just think about things. Emergencies may send us into fight or flight, while non-emergencies allow us to rest and digest. Often we do not understand why we do things, and sometimes the things we do can be explained by neuroscience. Written by award winning author, attorney and former teacher, Penelope Dyan, this 'learn to read' book is meant to keep kids thinking. Using skill based methods of word recognition, word repetition and rhyme, and filled with kid-friendly drawings, this book is a perfect fit for the core curriculum where young students are supposed to think and create.
