Format:Paperback|Amazon Verified Purchase
My son, 12 years old now, really enjoys the Big Nate series. He has every single book and reads them over and over and over again. When this one arrived, he didn’t even make it up to his bedroom to read it. He stopped mid-way on the stairs and sat there for an hour until he was done. When finished, I asked him how it was, and he replied, “Awesome!” Great middle grade series that Junior really enjoys and we’ve preordered every book that could be preordered.

1001 Inventions

1001 Inventions

We often think that people from a thousand years ago were living in the Dark Ages. But from the 7th century onward in Muslim civilization there were amazing advances and inventions that still influence our everyday lives. People living in the Muslim world saw what the Egyptians, Chinese, Indians, Greek, and Romans had discovered and spent the next one thousand years adding new developments and ideas. Inventors created marvels like the elephant water clock, explorers drew detailed maps of the world, women made scientific breakthroughs and founded universities, architects built huge domes larger than anywhere else on earth, astronomers mapped the stars and so much more! This book takes the wining formula of facts, photos, and fun, and applies it to this companion book to the 1001 Inventions exhibit from the Foundation for Science, Technology, and Civilization. Each page is packed with information on this little-known history, but also shows how it still applies to our world today.

The Other Side of the Ice: One Family’s Treacherous Journey Negotiating the Northwest Passage by Sprague Theobald and Allan Kreda

The Other side of the ice

The Other side of the ice

A sailor and his family’s harrowing and inspiring story of their attempt to sail the treacherous Northwest Passage.
Sprague Theobald, an award-winning documentary filmmaker and expert sailor with over 40,000 offshore miles under his belt, always considered the Northwest Passage–the sea route connecting the Atlantic to the Pacific–the ultimate uncharted territory. Since Roald Amundsen completed the first successful crossing of the fabled Northwest Passage in 1906, only twenty-four pleasure craft have followed in his wake. Many more people have gone into space than have traversed the Passage, and a staggering number have died trying. From his home port of Newport, Rhode Island, through the Passage and around Alaska to Seattle, it would be an 8,500-mile trek filled with constant danger from ice, polar bears, and severe weather.
What Theobald couldn’t have known was just how life-changing his journey through the Passage would be. Reuniting his children and stepchildren after a bad divorce more than fifteen years earlier, the family embarks with unanswered questions, untold hurts, and unspoken mistrusts hanging over their heads. Unrelenting cold, hungry polar bears, and a haunting landscape littered with sobering artifacts from the tragic Franklin Expedition of 1845, as well as personality clashes that threaten to tear the crew apart, make The Other Side of the Ice a harrowing story of survival, adventure, and, ultimately, redemption.

5.0 out of 5 stars more than I bargained for. June 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
Since I was a child in Canada, I have been fascinated by the stories of the arctic an Antarctic. This was a real adventure to me, and I actually got up at 3am after going to bed at 12:30 to finish it. It was exceptionally well written and I don’t recall any typos or grammar errors as I have seen in other books of this length. It is both a story of family and mystery tale that keeps you wondering what the heck will happen next. Highly recommended for any one with kids or just a desire to explore the impossible!

I went to high school with the author-but didn’t know him well at that time. This book is an incredible story of braving a crossing of the Northwest Passage in a 57 foot boat-with all of the challenges of equipment failure, bad weather, and being stalked by polar bears. In addition, the author describes the challenge of reconnecting with his estranged children (who were his crew) during the journey, all while under harrowing conditions. I really enjoyed reading it.
 5.0 out of 5 stars Great book about a journey both physical and mental September 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Wonderfully written as I almost felt I was part of the crew at times. A true show of how strong and complicated the bonds of family can be. Thanks for taking the readers along on your journey.
