6. Steam Train! All The Way To Canterbury, England - Penelope Dyan

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

A steam train is a train that is pulled by a head locomotive that produces power through a steam engine. The purpose of a steam train was to pull freight cars and passenger coaches along railroad tracks. All the Steam locomotives are fueled by coal, wood or oil. The fuel is burned to produce steam in a boiler, and this is what drives the steam engine so that it can pull the train cars. Fuel and water supplies are also carried on the train. Beginning in Britain, steam locomotives dominated railway transportation from the start of the 19th century, until the middle of the 20th century. They were gradually improved and developed in their over 150 years of use. Starting in about 1930, other types of engines were developed, and steam locomotives were gradually superseded by the diesel and electric locomotives. So what this means is that they basically stopped using them in favor of more modern means of transport, including the more modern trains. A very fun thing to do when you are in England is to see if you can take a trip on a steam train, because you will be sitting and traveling in a real piece of something that came right from the history books! Try to imagine all the people who might have sat right here you are sitting. Write a story about it. Take some pictures, and put your tickets in this book and make it your very own. See if you can see some of the things Penelope Dyan and John D. Weigand saw when they conceived this book! Written by the award winning writer, attorney, and former K-12 teacher, Penelope Dyan, and accompanied by the always wonderful photographs of professional photographer and videographer, John D. Weigand, even if you don’t get a chance to ride this train, you can still get a bird’s eye view of it through the words and photos in this book!

8. Stories Behind the Greatest Hits of Christmas (Large Print 16pt) - Ace Collins

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

You know these songs by heart. They're the ''greatest hits'' of Christmas. But do you know the fascinating, inspirational stories behind them - who wrote them and how they came to be? In his latest book, Ace Collins reveals the stories behind the greatest hits of Christmas - all the songs you have enjoyed for generations. For example, as the story goes, jazz great Mel Torme wrote ''The Christmas Song'' after visiting a friend in California, who, longing to escape California's heat for the cold winters of his New England, doodled these now-famous phrases on his spiral pad: ''Chestnuts roasting Jack Frost nipping Yuletide carols '' Torme saw those words and one of the most famous Christmas songs of all time, first recorded by Nat King Cole, was born. Within these pages, you'll discover the origins of such famous Christmas songs as ''Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,'' ''Winter Wonderland,'' ''White Christmas,'' ''Little Drummer Boy,'' ''Feliz Navidad,'' ''O Holy Night,'' and two dozen others. Although not yet as famous as the Christmas songs of which he writes (he's working on that), Collins's many books have sold tens of thousands of copies and have become treasured family classics, read and enjoyed by young and old alike. His new book is a treasure-trove of the kind of magic that makes Christmas the beloved holiday it is. This is Ace Collins at his storytelling best which means it's sure to become a ''greatest hit'' with your family, too.
