A teacher in our Great Lakes Educator Badging program recommends: "The young adult novels of Carl Hiassen are good resources to teach middle school students about habitats. In Scat, the main character and his friends stop an oil man from drilling near the everglades by proving that an endangered Florida Panther and her cub are living there." #SheddEducator
Every emotion possible from this book. Though it is a little inappropriate in a few spots, I think every teen should read this book, well, maybe depending on their maturity level. Don't expect sunshine and rainbows, but the irreverent humor is priceless. Loved it!
"Sweet Swan of Avon" by scholar Robin Williams presents irrefutable evidence that Mary Sidney Herbert, Countess of Pembroke, wrote the plays and sonnets attributed to the man called William Shakespeare. The times prevented this well-educated member of a prominent literary circle from admitting that she wrote the Shakespeare oeuvre. This book is by far the best evidence I've seen that Mary Sidney Herbert was indeed the actual author. Only Mary Sidney Herbert fits the mold perfectly.
