In The Snowflake on the Belfry, Anna Balakian, one of Comparative Literature's leading scholars, confronts the "current zeitgeist" in contemporary literary studies and examines changing concepts of the language of poetry, the interrelationships among writers, and problems of the creative process. She discusses critics and their authors; the current importance assumed by criticism and its consequential devalorization of the literary work; problems of modernism; the interaction of literary and visual media; hermeneutical criticism and the Surrealists; the use and misuse of literary texts for ideological purposes; relativism and anthropomorphism; multiculturalism and the sociological approach to the arts. Other essays examine issues of origin and originality, Mallarme, the boundaries between poetry and theology, the search for beauty, unfamiliar literatures, and literary theory. These essays demonstrate Balakian's belief that the fate of literature "needs the snowflake not to ring the bell to any particular tune but to maintain a seasonal balance in the literary climate."

But it was with the birth of his son, Timmy (in April so Timmy's mother did not have to carry the child in the summer), science began to fail Raymond Tully. One by one, he attempted to explode the myths of childhood with sound scientific fact. He disproved "The Little Engine that Could", Alice, Winnie the Pooh, and Mary Poppins, in turn. One figure Rayond had not yet destroyed way Santa Claus. Three days before Timmy's fifth Christmas, Raymond decided it was time to break the news to Timmy. Timmy was not convinced. What he said was, "Prove it."

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.

Das is a 7-year-old panda bear from China. He is very fun, curious and has a strong imagination to think of exciting activities and games to play with his mom, dad, sister and brother and of course his pet. He loves climbing high in the bamboo trees so he can eat bamboo leaves because they are his favorite snack. He is a good friend at recess by helping his friends at the playground and making sure if someone is playing by themselves, he plays with them. He really enjoys playing soccer and other games with his friends at the local park. Since it is very cold in China it snows. When it snows, Das likes to look for snowflakes falling from the sky and try to catch them on his tongue. Sometimes he misses his tongue and the snowflakes land on his face, it's cold but he doesn't mind. Snowflakes may have special powers. If you catch a snowflake in your hand and make a wish, it just may come true. Das catches as many snowflakes as he can to make wishes, so his family and all his friends have good health and have lots of fun. Even a pretend snowflake can have special powers to make wishes come true.
