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

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 9.20  - 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.

84. 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.'

88. Metallica Club Dayz 1982 - 1984 (Large Print 16pt) - Bill Hale

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

Metallica: The Club Dayz is a collection of photographs of the now legendary rock band Metallica, between 1982 and 1984. This book contains rare and exclusive photographs from six of the band's earliest performances including their first shows in San Francisco at The Stone and The Old Waldorf which featured the original lineup with Dave Mustaine (guitar) and Ron McGovney (bass), Cliff Burton's introductory gig with the band at The Stone, the last Metallica show with Dave Mustaine, and Kirk Hammett's Metallica debut. As chief photographer of Metal Rendezvous International, a groundbreaking heavy rock magazine that was published throughout the '80s, Bill Hale was given unlimited access to hang out with and photograph this then - fledgling metal band. His job at the time was to capture the band onstage and offstage and provide the magazine with unique photographs of Metallica, from the band showcasing their brazen live energy in concert, to unveiling some of their crazy and unpredictable backstage antics. Bill Hale was right there from the very beginning, capturing the band before, during and after their performances. He was at every one of their early Bay Area shows, without the safety of a photo pit, crushed among the savage crowd as they head - banged fearlessly to the music of their local heroes. Here, for the first time Bill Hale opens up his photo vault. Witness one of the greatest rock bands of all time during their embryonic stage. Influenced musically by the new breed of British metal yet epitomizing the punk rock attitude, Metallica's loud, snotty and don't five a fuck attitude is very evident in these photographs. Most of the photos in this book have never been published and many of the images have never before been revealed to the public. Metallica: The Club Dayz is a long lost chapter of this band's visual history.

93. Norm and Ahmed (Large Print 16pt) - Alex Buzo

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

These plays portray a society at the cusp of reform. The writing reflects a deep sense of the need for change, and awareness of the ground beginning to give way beneath the feet. The plays are: Alan Hopgood's Private Yuk Objects, a rich portrait of Australia in the mid - 60s centred around Australia's participation in the Vietnam war; and This Old Man Comes Rolling Home, Dorothy Hewett's celebration of working - class life and politics in an inner - suburban Sydney during the cold war. The Lucky Streak by James Searle, a comedy about two young men who share a room in a boarding house, the play is an exploration of the rhythms of the inarticulate and the aggression, rooted in frustration, present in the simplest of domestic conversations; and Norm and Ahmed, Alex Buzo's classic examination of racism and alienation, and the subject of a controversial censorship debate.

96. On The Rails---A Kid's Guide To Brenner Pass - Penelope Dyan

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

You can get very bored on a long train ride, but you won't get bored if you know what is ahead on the tracks. Brenner Pass is a beautiful place, and the exciting thing is that you can see it by train! If you want, you can even stop at one of the many train stations along the way and stretch your legs and talk a walk around one of the several lovely small towns. Brenner Pass is a feast for the eyes. Have your children count how many church steeples they see along the way, or how many small villages they see. Watch for hikers and take in the breath taking beauty. With photography by John D. Weigand and poetry by award winning author, Penelope Dyan, you can delight in the sights and impressions of these two travelers as you talk to your children about what happened along the pass. Brenner Pass served mule trains and carts until a road was opened in 1777. The railway, completed in 1867, is the only trans-alpine rail route with no major tunnel. At the end of World War I international borders shifted. Control of the area has shared between Italy and Austria ever since. During World War II, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini met there to celebrate their Pact of Steel on March 10, 1940. And Brenner Pass was a Nazi escape route after the collapse of Germany in 1945. The pass is beautiful to behold, and with or without its colorful history, the journey is fun and interesting. Travel the pass through the pages of this book, and pretend you can hear the sound of the rails going clickity clack, clickity clack as you trave along the railroad's track.

99. One Way or Another The Story of a Girl Who Loved Rock Stars (Large Print 16pt) - Nikki McWatters

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 22.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

I looked down at this man who adorned the bedroom walls of girls all over the world. His eyes were spinning, his makeup was melting and he had the goofiest grin on his handsome face. This was what the Vulture Club was about. This was fun. This was as rock and roll as it got. I was bedding this rock god on behalf of every teenage girl who had ever imagined doing exactly this - and it felt fantastic. In 1981, fifteen - year - old Nikki McWatters is living in a Gold Coast suburb, dragging herself through humdrum schooldays and dreaming of losing her virginity to a rock star. With three friends she starts the Vulture Club for aspiring groupies - and so begins a festival of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. By day Nikki is a dutiful student; by night she collects rock stars, crawling out her bedroom window and sneaking backstage to meet the band. As Nikki gets older, her conquests get bigger and the stakes get higher. Soon she finds herself in Sydney, chasing an acting career and carousing with her idols. From Australian Crawl to INXS, Pseudo Echo to Duran Duran, she is living her teenage dream - but is the groupie life all it's cracked up to be? One Way or Another is a rollicking ride through a world of pub rock, big hair, wild nights and mornings after. With irrepressible humour and a bulging little black book, Nikki McWatters recalls an age when everything seemed possible - even if everything wasn't such a good idea.
