The Kids’ Ultimate Animal Activity Book takes the best animal material from Stacy and Ken’s previous titles and puts it in a single book that kids will love and come back to time and again. Organized in a see, learn, do (interact) format, the book first lays the groundwork for observing and learning about the animals—from their behavior and habitat to the truths and myths about them—and then jumps into lots of animal-related activities (like finding caterpillars or inspecting lizards).

Mel Bartholomew's top-selling Square Foot Gardening books have made his revolutionary garden system available to millions of people. In Square Foot Gardening with Kids, Mel reveals his tips, tricks, and fun projects in one of his most cherished pursuits: teaching youngsters to build and grow a SFG of their own.

Kids learn many valuable life lessons when tending their own garden -- such as the importance of following instructions and doing your chores, basic skills like counting and water conservation, and learning to appreciate the nature of food and why it is important to respect it. Most importantly though, they learn that growing your own food is both fun and rewarding.

Get the most return on investment from your garden by calculating which vegetables, fruits, and herbs give the highest payback. To make the selection process of what to grow easy, Mel Bartholomew -- author of the best-selling Square Foot Gardening -- has a new book to maximize your garden's return on investment. High-Value Veggies is an easy-to-use reference book that will help you choose edibles that make the most financial and spatial sense for your space. Explore the thought processes and math behind growing vegetables and herbs in order to craft the best plan for you. Maximizing your garden's yield is no simple task. Consider the tomato; most people think it's a safe bet for a high-yield return - but which variety? Heirloom tomatoes typically cost $5 or more a pound at farmers' markets. You can beat that price by growing Cherokee Purples from seed at a net cost of only 80 cents per pound. If you plant purchased seedlings, the cost will go up to about $1 a pound -- and that's including the cost of water and fertilizer. This is the kind of invaluable data and advice you can trust High-Value Veggies to provide. Whether you're interested in growing tomatoes, pumpkins, cabbage, corn, or anything else, it's wise to consider the invisible dollar signs sown along the way. The relative return on investment for each veggie in High-Value Veggies is calculated based on dollar value generated for each square foot planted. You don't need to be a math whiz to plan your next vegetable garden. Bartholomew has done the math for you, and he has cost-effective answers.

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2011 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, University of Gdansk, course: British literature, intertextuality, language: English, abstract: Within the full spectrum of various literary theories offered by modern criticism, the theory of intertextuality deserves a particular attention. This ambitious concept, proposed by Julia Kristeva in the 1960’s, shed new light on the understanding and approach to a literary text. Influenced by Bakhtin’s theory of dialogism, the French scholar suggested a new model of communication which consists of two axes: horizontal, involving communication between subject and addressee, and vertical which is in an interaction between a text and a context. The two axes, as she claimed, coincide which stresses the fact that “each word (text) is an intersection of word (texts) where at least one other word (text) can be read” (Kristeva in: Allen: 2000, 39). She further drew a conclusion that “any text is constructed like a mosaic of quotations; any text is the absorption and transformation of another” (Kristeva in: Allen: 2000, 39). Consequently, we can assume that any literary text does not exist on its own, but is rather in various ways linked with other literary texts. Barthes further develops Kristeva’s original concept and states that: [...] a text is [...] a multidimensional space in which a variety of writings, none of them original, blend and clash. Text is a tissue of quotations drawn from innumerable centuries of culture [...] (Barthes in Allen: 2000, 13). The text exists only in respect to other, prior literary texts, called intertexts, with which the new text enters into a discourse. Literary plots, genres, stylistic devices, different cultural symbols and images, methods of narration and many other aspects of a literary work already existing in the literary tradition become a part of new text. (Allen: 2000,11) In this way a new literary text is always enriched by its intertexts which complement the new text and shape its meaning. Intertextuality, thus, can be understood as a study of those aspects of a literary work which indicate a great dependence of both creation and reception of a given text on the whole network of the literary tradition (Nycz: 1995, 62 ). Another important facet of the theory of intertextuality is strictly connected with an active role of the reader. As “the act of reading plunges us into a network of textual relations” (Allen: 2000, 1), a considerable competence of the reader is required. In order to grasp a full potential of the text, the readers should be aware of the rich literary discourse which takes place in the text. [...]
