The History and Cultural Heritage of Chinese Calligraphy, Printing and Library Work (IFLA Publications)

In China the tradition of a book society is longer than anywhere else in the world. Chinese paper making, calligraphy and woodblock printing date from very early ages, but have for a very long time remained almost unknown to the Western world. At the IFLA satellite meeting Chinese Written and Printed Cultural Heritage and Library Work in Hangzhou in 2006 the richness of present day book historical research and library activities in China has been presented by more than sixty papers. This fine selection reflects the width and depth of this extremely important and immense Chinese heritage.

The Little Book of Loanwords

The funny thing about loanwords is that nobody is planning on giving them back.

They are called "borrowed" - but, of course, they will stay with the language that borrowed them. English has taken many words from many languages - and sometimes their origin is obvious, sometimes it is

quite a surprise. Bolshevik is quite discernibly from Russian, cliche apparently from French, but would you have guessed that jerky is originally from the South American language Quechua?

This book wants to invite you to browse through a list of languages and see which words they have contributed to English. Just read from Afrikaans to Yiddish, and discover which words each of them has contributed. Travel around the world, without ever leaving the English language, and have fun!

However, the new edition has kept to the spirit of the original, which has been a valuable tool for many.

Budding Reader Book Set 1: Cat and Rat

Reading is a neurologically complex skill. So, it isn't surprising that many children find learning to read difficult. Make learning to read more fun with award-winning Budding Reader eBooks, arguably the easiest learn-to-read book series on the market. These research-based eBooks were developed in consultation with Cecilia Minden, Ph.D., the former Director of Language and Literacy at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. They were illustrated by artist, Doug Oglesby, winner of one Emmy, five Emmy nominations, and three international awards from the Broadcast Designers Association.

Budding Reader eBooks use an innovative format to ease children into reading. Using research-based best practices identified by the National Reading Panel, each of the five Budding Reader eBook sets (one for each short vowel sound) tells an original story over the course of ten books. Previewing a book dramatically improves reading comprehension, so Book 1 in each set is a wordless picture book which introduces the story through colorful illustrations. Repetition aids brain development, so the story is retold in Books 2-10 with an ever-expanding vocabulary. By repeating words and gradually adding new ones, Budding Reader eBooks help new readers (even reluctant ones) experience success from the very start.

In total, the Budding Reader eBook series introduces more than 60 simple words including dozens of common sight words. Learning is reinforced with free companion writing worksheets (available at buddingreader.com) which provide a multisensory experience and enable children to practice both reading and writing. A free parent guide with tips for working with new readers is also available on the website.

The first set in the series, Cat and Rat, introduces the short "a" vowel sound and is designed to be a child's very first reader. With only eleven words (and, at, can, cat, look, rat, see, stop, that, the, you) introduced over the course of ten books, Cat and Rat aims to provide even the most reluctant reader with a positive first introduction to reading.

Series:

oSet 1: Cat and Rat (Short a; 11 words)

oSet 2: Wit and Kit (Short i; 17 words)

oSet 3: Bugs (Short u; 18 words)

oSet 4: Hop! (Short o; 18 words)

oSet 5: Hens (Short e; 22 words)

For every eBook set sold, Budding Reader donates one to a child in need. One for You. One for the World. A Better World with Every Purchase.

Gold Mom's Choice Award Winner: The Mom's Choice Awards has named Cat and Rat among the very best in family-friendly media, products and services.
