NANISE´ A Navajo Herbal | One Hundred Plants from the Navajo Reservation | publishing, author, write, books, schools, teachers, publicity, marketing | Scoop.it

NANISE’ A Navajo Herbal, One Hundred Plants from the Navajo Reservation, co-authored by Vernon O. Mayes and Barbara Bayless Lacy, with illustrations by Jack Ahasteen and Jason Chee, details plants that are found on the Navajo Reservation and provides the reader with the Navajo name for each plant as well as ways the Navajos used them in everyday life, whether for ceremonial,

 

medicinal or household purposes – complete with illustrations.

The book is designed to be used in the classroom as well as a field guide for hikers, botanists, and others who are interested in Navajo culture and native uses of plants such as Crownbeard (Verbesina), Sandpuff (Tripterocalyx) and even Scrambled Eggs (Corydalis) – a flowering herb that Navajos use to treat arthritis, snakebites, and even sore throats. These are just a few examples of the plants that are detailed in NANISE’, the Navajo word for “vegetation.”

Do you speak English but still have challenges being understood in the U.S.?

 

Do you plan to study in America but worry about communicating in all academic and social situations?

 

Excuse Me, Can You Repeat That? explores the most commonly misunderstood aspects of communication in the U.S. The rules of communication are not universal – they are specific to particular cultures.

 

Inspired by Edelstein’s experience teaching hundreds of international students, her guide provides essential information to understand and be understood when communicating with Americans. The guide also contains personal commentary from fifty international students who have studied in the U.S., providing insight from their experiences.

 

What the Guide is About….

Excuse Me, Can You Repeat That? is packed with tips and suggestions that afford the international student an inside look on how to successfully navigate verbal and nonverbal communication while pursuing studies and life in the United States. It goes beyond simply teaching students and U.S. visitors how to speak English. It delves into manners and the meaning of American English as it pertains to a variety of situations such as grocery shopping, attending a social gathering, eating at a restaurant, and attending classes.

 

It explains how intonation patterns, pronunciation, and nonverbal language cues can completely change the meaning of the spoken word and demonstrates how to communicate in a way that will ensure speakers are clearly understood. Diagrams, charts and words to practice are an added value to this comprehensive English communication guide.

Arizona Way Out West & Wacky, an Arizona Centennial project, offers humorous, interesting & wacky facts & activities, making learning Arizona’s history fun.

 

Find Out...

 

• What Geronimo and yawning have in common.
• Why sleeping in wet sheets didn’t mean you had a nighttime accident.
• What a glass eye has to do with Phoenix being Arizona’s state capital.
• How many teachers it would take standing head-to-toe to go from the bottom to the top of the Grand Canyon.
• Which Arizona city got its name by accident, and much, much more!

 

In addition to true, but gross, humorous, interesting and wacky stories and facts, Arizona Way Out West & Wacky and Arizona Way Out West & Witty: Library Edition make reading about Arizona’s history fun through word searches, crossword puzzles, coloring pages, recipes, crafts and many other amusing activities.

The difference between the two? While Wacky solicits children to write and color on its pages, Witty: Library Edition, has reconfigured activities and word games with no coloring pages, and it’s formatted as a chapter book. It’s ideal for libraries and schools, because its readers are entertained and educated, but not tempted to mark up the copy. Plus, it comes with a curriculum guide in the back of the book!

 

Finally, a history book kids will want to read!

and The Sixty-Minute Shakespeare, a series of seven books including Romeo and Juilet, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Much Ado About Nothing, Twelfth Night and the NEW title - Taming of the Shrew.

Never in the history of television had a show so captured the hearts of both youngsters and adults. Each week, Marshal Matt Dillon and his friends would face a new threat to the peace and lawfulness of their frontier home of Dodge City, Kansas�and each week, goodness and determination prevailed. It was the perfect antidote for a country still emerging from the darkness of World War II.

In recognition of this, the show�s golden anniversary, author Ben Costello has produced a remarkable testament to the on-screen characters and off-screen individuals who made the story lines come alive. With lead performer biographies, hundreds of episode and behind-the-scenes photographs, complete episode logs, updates on all the surviving cast members, and interviews with the show�s luminaries, Gunsmoke: An American Institution will be a favorite for fans and historians alike.

 

The exciting 50-year history of Gunsmoke, television�s finest western show � including bios, background stories and several hundred photos of Miss Kitty, Marshal Matt Dillon, Doc Adams and all the Gunsmoke characters � is now available on an easy-to-mail, simple-to-view CD. Western and television history buffs can now conveniently enjoy a "greener" version of all 620 pages of the book Gunsmoke: An American Institution by Ben Costello on their computer screens, where they can zoom in on photos or enlarge the print for their reading pleasure. Relive 635 episodes and millions of memories or gift someone else with the unique experience.

Rattlesnake Rules | Children's Book By Conrad Storad | publishing, author, write, books, schools, teachers, publicity, marketing | Scoop.it

Award-winning author and science editor Conrad J. Storad

Uh-oh!
Was that a rattle I heard?

Maybe it was a rattlesnake
just following the rules.

Rules? Rattlesnakes have rules?

"Animals learn rules by living
They have no books or schools
Please pay attention to this story
For even rattlesnakes have rules"

Popular children’s author and science writer Conrad J. Storad introduces us to the amazing world of rattlesnakes.

“A lot of people think snakes are creepy,” says Conrad. “Others find them scary. But when you get to know them, you’ll see how fascinating they really are!”

Learn how, what, and when rattlesnakes eat. Why they flick their tongues in and out. And why they have rattles on the ends of their tails.
