A great big hug in book form, Snuggle Puppy is a year-round valentine from parent to child. It is bright, chunky, a pleasure to hold, and has a die-cut cover that reveals a glimpse of the joy inside before its even opened. Best of all, its packed, of course, with pure Boynton: her inimitable language, her inimitable illustrations, her inimitable sense of fun. OOO, Snuggle Puppy of mine.
Charlie Brown holds a special place in my heart. I always liked how he thought about others first, and despite continuing criticism (from people he considers friends), was able to find a little joy and happiness in every day!His Thanksgiving story is as relevant today as it was 50 years ago!The girls loved Snoopy and Woodstock, felt sorry for Charlie Brown, were irritated with Peppermint Patty for inviting herself over; and - were so happy, when Grandmother told Charlie Brown that all his friends could come over for dinner!They didnt understand what a station wagon was. I had a hard time explaining that minivans didnt exist back then.

This epic tale about the effects of the Russian Revolution and its aftermath on a bourgeois family was not published in the Soviet Union until 1987. One of the results of its publication in the West was Pasternaks complete rejection by Soviet authorities; when he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1958 he was compelled to decline it. The book quickly became an international best-seller.Dr. Yury Zhivago, Pasternaks alter ego, is a poet, philosopher, and physician whose life is disrupted by the war and by his love for Lara, the wife of a revolutionary. His artistic nature makes him vulnerable to the brutality and harshness of the Bolsheviks.
This book is a great overview of graphite & lead, charcoal & ink drawing methods via a variety of mediums & methods.The book has a series of exercises the reader can perform or study in order to practice with the tools described in earlier pages. I found the book to be very logically organized & easy to follow.This book is full of illustrated examples, referencing works of great masters, as well as illustrated examples devised by the author.I especially enjoyed the section on ink washes, as thats what Ive been thinking about lately. This book is excellent for not only beginners, but also for more experienced artists who have holes in their education which theyd like to fill..
