    Peterson
    The best-selling field guides of all time


    To see a fog shrew, should you go to Muir Woods National Monument? If you're planning to visit Yellowstone National Park, what animals can you expect to see? When should a photographer visit to get a shot of a gray fox?
    A mammal finder's guide (rather than an identification guide), this book tells you how to look, where to go, and what you are likely to find there. Two main sections provide a choice of looking up information by place or by species: The first includes regions of North America, highlighting the best places to look for mammals. The species-finding guide has accounts of more than four hundred species of mammals, including detailed directions to specific parks, refuges, and other locations; the best times of day (or night) to look; and much more information specific to each mammal.

    $7.99
    More Info
    Famous for his deadpan humor, "New York Times" bestselling author Senator Bob Dole here brings us his favorite witticisms and hilarious remarks of this country's commanders in chief.

    Referring to his own run for the presidency, Senator Dole writes: "President Nixon and I have much in common. We both grew up amidst rural privation. We both served in World War II. We both served in the House and Senate. Of course, there are some differences as well. That's why we call him President Nixon."

    Just in time for the inauguration and President's Day comes this delightful book chock-full of presidential quips and humor collected by Senator Dole -- one of the country's most recognizable political figures and commentator for Comedy Central's" Indecision 2000."

With chapters cleverly organized according to the senator's own opinions -- from "A Class by Themselves" (Lincoln, Reagan, the Roosevelts) and "Yankee Wits" (Coolidge, Kennedy) to "The Joke's on Them" (Taylor, Harding, Van Buren, Buchanan, the Harrisons, Pierce, Fillmore) -- "Great Presidential Wit" is the perfect antidote to the long political season.

    How Children Succeed; Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character (USED)

    $7.99
    More Info
    Why do some children succeed while others fail?

    The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: success comes to those who score highest on tests, from preschool admissions to SATs.

    But in How Children Succeed, Paul Tough argues that the qualities that matter most have more to do with character: skills like perseverance, curiosity, conscientiousness, optimism, and self-control.

    How Children Succeed introduces us to a new generation of researchers and educators who, for the first time, are using the tools of science to peel back the mysteries of character. Through their stories--and the stories of the children they are trying to help--Tough traces the links between childhood stress and life success. He uncovers the surprising ways in which parents do--and do not--prepare their children for adulthood. And he provides us with new insights into how to help children growing up in poverty.

    Early adversity, scientists have come to understand, can not only affect the conditions of children's lives, it can alter the physical development of their brains as well. But now educators and doctors around the country are using that knowledge to develop innovative interventions that allow children to overcome the constraints of poverty. And with the help of these new strategies, as Tough's extraordinary reporting makes clear, children who grow up in the most painful circumstances can go on to achieve amazing things.

    This provocative and profoundly hopeful book has the potential to change how we raise our children, how we run our schools, and how we construct our social safety net. It will not only inspire and engage readers, it will also change our understanding of childhood itself.
