From School Library Journal
Grade 3-5-- It goes without saying that, in the process of condensing and rewriting these books down to a fourth-grade reading level, most of the distinguished aspects of the works--writing style, language, atmosphere, characterization--have been sacrificed for a simple, not to say simplistic, master-plots approach that conveys the incidents but fails to impart the justification for their continuing endurance in the canon of juvenile literature. The books are illustrated with some attention paid to the sense of the plots and characters. For those who persist in the fallacy that knowing what the so-called "classics" of children's literature are about is a satisfactory substitution for actually experiencing them by reading the original, this series is acceptable. For the rest of us, it's as if someone's...

Winning Decisions: Getting It Right the First Time

Book Review
Making "good, fast, frequent decisions... better than those with whom you compete," say J. Edward Russo and Paul J.H. Schoemaker, is a critical skill in today's business climate. They additionally believe it's a skill that all of us can learn, much like a proper golf swing. In Winning Decisions, they lay out a four-step process that constitutes "a broad, conceptual framework" applicable in virtually any situation where a decision is needed. Russo and Schoemaker, consultants and professors who collaborated on an earlier book about the roadblocks to proper decision making, turn their attention here to making decisions "with the head, not the gut." Their program is divided into four phases fully explained in their own sections: Framing, Gathering Intelligence, Coming to Conclusions, and Learning from Experience. In total, they...

Little Numbers: And Pictures That Just Show Just how Little They Are (Fun Early Math Concepts Series)
Edward Packard
0761319042

Hardcover

From Publishers Weekly
A companion volume to Big Numbers, the math concept book Little Numbers by Edward Packard, illus. by Salvatore Murdocca, explores the world of fractions. "We'll start big with the number 1," kicks off the proceedings with a single seismosaurus on the front lawn. Things quickly diminish from there, as each turn of the page finds the critter shrinking to 1/10th of its size, then 1/100th, all the way down to one trillionth. Murdocca's cartoon illustrations allow for more information and comic asides. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
