Winner of the 1999 Caldecott Medal "Of all the forms of water the tiny six-pointed crystals of ice called snow are incomparably the most beautiful and varied." -- Wilson Bentley (1865-1931) From the time he was a small boy in Vermont, Wilson Bentley saw snowflakes as small miracles. And he determined that one day his camera would capture for others the wonder of the tiny crystal. Bentley's enthusiasm for photographing snowflakes was often misunderstood in his time, but his patience and determination revealed two important truths: no two snowflakes are alike; and each one is startlingly beautiful. His story is gracefully told and brought to life in lovely woodcuts, giving children insight into a soul who had not only a scientist's vision and perseverance but a clear passion for the wonders of nature. Snowflake Bentley won the 1999 Caldecott Medal.

This is a biography of Wilson Alwyn Bentley, the farmer from Jericho, Vermont, who took over five thousand photomicrographs of ice, dew, frost, and -- especially -- snow crystals. Although his photographs were taken between 1885 and 1931, they have never been equalled and are in great demand today. Bentley's story is one of courage and persistence against tremendous odds. He taught himself how to photograph snow crystals through a microscope while still in his teens and then pursued his obsession for years before having the beauty and scientific value of his work recognised by others. 'The Snowflake Man' lays open the life of a simple, self-educated, sensitive man who pursued natural beauty with microscope and camera for nearly fifty years. The book contains 30 black and white photographs.

The usual calculations employed in all boat design work, requiring only very basic arithmetical skills, are set out and typical examples worked through. In addition, speed/power tables are given for motor boats as well as a method for checking "balance" under sail.

This book presents Concept-Oriented Reading Instruction (CORI), a research-supported framework for integrating curriculum with instruction and fostering long-term engagement in reading.

Demonstrated are compelling ways to: *Connect reading and writing to science, social studies, or math *Create an active, collaborative classroom environment *Use real-world observations to promote strategic thinking and learning *Get students involved in setting and pursuing their own knowledge goals *Develop creative assignments, build student portfolios, and evaluate progress The book is replete with concrete examples showing the CORI approach in action, including lively descriptions and photographs of a semester-long grade 2-3 weather unit. Also included are useful reproducible planning tools and assessment materials.

How we lead small groups is vitally important. Small group leaders touch people's lives at a deep level, profoundly impacting how they make sense of the Christian faith. Much of the meaning we attach to Christian community arises from our ongoing experiences in small groups. Persons who design and lead public worship understand how their decisions and actions have the power to form and transform a people of God. Persons responsible for designing and leading your church's small groups have sometimes been less clear about their role in forming and transforming God's people. Hawkins identifies the various roles that small group leaders are called to fill and helps leaders identify when each role is appropriate and how to effectively carry out the role.
