Great Savings on Text Books for Students

     One of the greatest expenses students have to face are the outrageous prices on text books. Other than some of the reference books for the classes that actually pertained to my core classes, I never used any of the expensive text books ever again after the class was finished. Instead of buying these books, you can rent them from Campus Book Rentals.

Learn To Tie A Tie With The Rabbit And The Fox

Book cover art for Learn To Tie A Tie With The Rabbit And The Fox by Sybrina Durant Learn To Tie A Tie With The Rabbit And The Fox
by Sybrina Durant
Genre: Children, How-to

     This is an adorable book that tells a tale of a fox chasing a rabbit. Not only is the story entertaining it serves as a mnemonic device to help children learn and remember how to tie a tie. I knew there was one for tying shoelaces but had never known about this one. The fun illustrations made me wish that I had a Kindle Fire so I could see them in full color. A great gift idea for Christmas that is unique and can be fun for the whole family. There is even an accompanying song that you can listen to at the author's website.

I give it 5 star review graphic 5 stars!
