3. Lookin' For Shamrocks! A Kid's Guide To Dublin, Ireland - Penelope Dyan

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 8.60  - Click book title for availability and further details

Parents may enjoy going to the Guinness Brewery for a beer when they come to Dublin, Ireland; but kids see the world through different eyes. This book is not meant to be a true travel book in the sense of what one may view as a travel book. Instead, it is meant to inspire imaginations, to be added to with a kid's own notes, photos and drawings and to be used as a true learning tool,for even the youngest of travelers. Too many books spoon feed facts. Few encourage true mind exploration, and it is only with the exploring eye and the inquiring mind that a child can really truly learn. Take a trip to Dublin, Ireland and look at what Photographer John D. Weigand saw through the lens of his camera, and then take some photos of your own or gather photos from the internet or from magazines and travel brochures. You can even travel vicariously with Weigand and Dyan, if you like! Penelope Dyan has added a few words of poetic narrative to help get little minds moving and making up their very own narratives for their very own additions to this book. Dyan is an attorney, a former teacher, and a writer who knows just how to spark kids' imaginations and how to inspire them.

5. Lost History The Enduring Legacy of Muslim Scientists, Thinkers, and Artists (Large Print 16pt) - Michael Hamilton Morgan

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Early Muslim culture set the foundation for the Rennaissance of Europe and for nearly every aspect of the modern world. In this age of conflict, ''Lost History'' provides a vital look at the Muslim world and its deep connection to all cultures. Unlike many histories, which address the noted Arab Golden Age of Baghdad, Persia, and Muslim Spain from 632 to 1258 AD and the fall of Baghdad, ''Lost History'' reveals the many 'golden ages' of Muslim thought, from Shiite Iran to Mughal India, to the 18th century. Engaging chapters introduce a contemporary accountant, obstetrician, civil engineer, or astrophysicist, all whose work is linked to early Muslim advancements.Artful flashbacks render page - turning accounts of such luminaries as Al Ma'mun, who founded Baghdad's international House of Wisdom from which came foundations for modern math, astronomy, chemistry, medicine, and literature; Al Khwarizmi, often considered the Father of Algebra, whose invention of algorithms makes possible cell phones today; revered Arab philospher Al Kindi, who wrote, 'nothing should be dearer to the seeker of truth than the truth itself;' Astronomer Al Manon, for whom is named a crater of the moon; the exiled Emir Abdal Rahman, who brought to Cordoba, Spain, irrigation systems and unique architecture; and the Syrian - born Al Nafis, who revealed that the blood flows from the heart, through the lungs, to the body and back again. Finally, readers discover that Omar Khayyam, well - loved poet of the Rubaiyat, was a mathematical wizard who calculated the length of a year to be 365.242 days (later calculated by atomic clocks to within millionths of a second). Writes the author: 'By recovering lost history together, maybe we can really get at the issues of today that will never be solved by force. Because if there is no other lesson to be drawn from ''Lost History'', it is that force rarely ever positively resolves issues of the spirit and the soul - whether in individuals, or in civilizations.'
