Intriguing book about two teens who fall in love, told entirely through photos. There are notes, letters and reports to move the story along, but a great deal of the story is inferred through photos of locations and props. The ending is ambiguous, le...more

Cute story about a group of penguins at the zoo who find a camera and then figure out how to use it. Just cute, not hilarious as the publishers would have you believe. Nice flip out set of pictures at the end of the book.

“It was, of course, nothing more than sexism, the especially virulent type espoused by male techies who sincerely believe that they are too smart to be sexists.”
Neal Stephenson, Snow Crash

“Half of teachers leave the profession within their first four years, and kids with behaviour challenges and their parents are cited as one of the major reasons.”
Ross W. Greene, Lost at School: Why Our Kids with Behavioral Challenges are Falling Through the Cracks and How We Can Help Them

“Mr. D," Grover asked timidly, "if you're not going to eat it, could I have your Diet Coke can?”
Rick Riordan, The Lightning Thief

“Boys do not long for fathers who will usher them through the gauntlet of psychological disconnect. They long for fathers who have themselves survived intact. Boys do not ache for their father's masculinity. They ache for their fathers' hearts.”
T. Real

“Religious people should always be wary of the ways in which political power is wielded and skeptical of how economic privileges are distributed. They should also be mindful of how their own traditions have been used for narrow political purposes, and how some religious figures have manipulated the faith to aggrandize their own power. The doctrine of original sin and the idea of a fallen side of human nature apply to people who are religious no less than those who are not.”
E.J. Dionne Jr.
