Ahoy! All aboard for a world of learning and fun! ´´Ducks overboard!´´ shouts the captain, as a giant wave washes a box of 10 little rubber ducks off his cargo ship and into the sea. The ducks are swept away in various directions. One drifts west, where a friendly dolphin jumps over it. A whale sings to another. But as the sun sets, the 10th little rubber duck is left all alone, bobbing helplessly on the big wide sea. Small readers and listeners will empathize with the little duck´s plight-and will rejoice at the heartwarming surprise ending. In this poignant and funny story, illustrated with strikingly designed collages, Eric Carle takes readers on an exciting voyage of discovery. Following the little ducks as they float to all parts of the globe, young explorers can see for themselves the meanings of directional words and learn simple math concepts, such as counting and the use of cardinal and ordinal numbers. Each creature the ducks meet is seen in its own habitat and behaves in a true-to-life manner, offering a very simple first view of biology and geography. ´´A wonderful read-aloud for storytimes or one-on-one sharing. It´s a definite 10,´´ commented School Library Journal in a starred review. ´´Beautifully composed illustrations,´´ said Booklist. ´´As sublimely simple and endearing as the playthings it portrays,´´ agreed Publishers Weekly. This board book edition with sturdy pages is perfect to share with toddlers. Note that this edition does not include a squeaker at the end.
It’s all about the food…. For the Robertsons, family is typified by the dinner table, where both food and fables are dished up with equal care. Anyone with a good story - whether it be a hunting escapade or one of the children’s antics - is welcome to share. And that’s what this family is all about - sharing, caring for one another, and the love of good food. Chapters are built around recipes that represent each stage of the Robertson life - chapters like... Fried Bologna: Here you’ll get an inside look at what it was like to grow up Robertson before all the fame and money came in. You’ll see the Robertson boys fending for themselves as father Phil was out running nets and selling his newly invented duck calls and matriarch Miss Kay was out working to keep the family afloat. Chicken Strips: In this chapter, Willie and Korie marry when Korie is only 18 - but only after dealing with Korie’s father - and their lives are shaped and prepared to someday take the family business to another level. Duck Gumbo: Just like making great gumbo takes patience and time, so did building a duck dynasty. This chapter tells of Phil’s passion and hard work in sticking with something he believed in and loved doing and how that patience and hard work has paid off. Dumplings, Hot Water Cornbread, and Fried Squirrel: None of the Robertsons would be where they are today if not for Miss Kay. This chapter is all about food, family, and business, and how Miss Kay kept them all laughing through the good times and the bad. Back Straps: Here you’ll learn about Willie’s passion for business, hunting, and friendship, and how all this led to his own company - Buck Commander - and his exciting encounters along the way. Road Kill: The journey to a successful family business and television show has been a long one, with a few bumps in the road. ... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Willie Robertson, Korie Robertson.

To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, is one of the best-loved novels of the 20th century. But for the last 50 years, the novel´s celebrated author, Harper Lee, has said almost nothing on the record. Journalists have trekked to her hometown of Monroeville, Alabama, where Harper Lee, known to her friends as Nelle, has lived with her sister, Alice, for decades, trying and failing to get an interview with the author. But in 2001, the Lee sisters opened their door to Chicago Tribune journalist Marja Mills. It was the beginning of a long conversation - and a great friendship. In 2004, with the Lees´ blessing, Mills moved into the house next door to the sisters. She spent the next 18 months there, sharing coffee at McDonalds and trips to the Laundromat with Nelle, feeding the ducks and going out for catfish supper with the sisters, and exploring all over lower Alabama with the Lees´ inner circle of friends. Nelle shared her love of history, literature, and the Southern way of life with Mills, as well as her keen sense of how journalism should be practiced. As the sisters decided to let Mills tell their story, Nelle helped make sure she was getting the story - and the South - right. Alice, the keeper of the Lee family history, shared the stories of their family. The Mockingbird Next Door is the story of Mills´s friendship with the Lee sisters. It is a testament to the great intelligence, sharp wit, and tremendous storytelling power of these two women, especially that of Nelle. Mills was given a rare opportunity to know Nelle Harper Lee, to be part of the Lees´ life in Alabama, and to hear them reflect on their upbringing, their corner of the Deep South, how To Kill a Mockingbird affected their lives, and why Nelle Harper Lee chose to never write another novel. 1.

Alan and Lisa Robertson, members of America´s favorite back woods family and the Duck Commander Clan, take on the topic of relationships as they share the secrets that saved their marriage. Infidelity, deceit, distrust, and shame. Unfortunately, these are recurring themes in many of today´s marriages in America - even in the family-values-promoting, Christian-based Robertson family. With a romance that began in junior high, the couple got off to a rocky start but soon settled into married life and had two baby girls. Alan became a pastor in the church where his family had been members for years. Then, when Lisa had an affair, the heartache and the tension was very public. But this is not a book about a marriage gone wrong. It is a candid story of rescued love and renewed commitment. After nearly getting divorced, Alan and Lisa came to terms with what went wrong in their marriage and both began the hard work of making it right. Now married for 29 years, Alan and Lisa counsel couples in trouble and speak across the country - openly sharing their hardships, their journey to renewed commitment, and a thriving marriage. Includes forewords by Korie, Kay, and Missy Robertson. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Al Robertson, Lisa Robertson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/sans/006938/bk_sans_006938_sample.mp3.

For 15 years, Mike Rognlien has learned from some of the best (and some of the...not best) people in the corporate world. His tenure at Facebook, as a consultant to Microsoft, and at numerous other companies - from insurance to banking to Silicon Valley - taught him valuable lessons in responsibility, ownership and accountability, and the fine art of T-shirt printing. And now, with a mix of wisdom and rueful humor, he´s sharing his accumulated work and life lessons with you. Yes, you. Because if you want your career, and therefore your company, to be the best they can be, that´s how you have to start thinking of them: as yours. You have to fully understand the role you play, the good and the bad impact your behavior has on all of the people around you, and the unconscious biases that can control your thoughts and decisions if left unchecked. You have to be sure that this is what brings you real fulfillment. You have to be prepared to fail spectacularly badly and recover with a flourish. And you have to be ready to control your wrath when you´re served duck twice in one week. (Trust us - the story does apply to you.) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Rognlien.

New York Times best-selling author and star of A&E´s Duck Dynasty, Willie Robertson, teams up with William Doyle, the best-selling author of American Gun, to share the history of America´s most well-known hunters. America was created by hunters, trappers, and mountain men. As Teddy Roosevelt put it: ´´The virility, clear-sighted common sense, and resourcefulness of the American people is due to the fact that we have been a nation of hunters and frequenters of the forest, plains, and waters.´´ And Willie Robertson and William Doyle think it´s about time we honor American hunters by telling their incredible stories of skill, courage, survival, and downright bodaciousness. Perfect for anyone who loves hunting, sport shooting, and wide-open spaces and is interested in the amazing tales that are part of the history of America, this rip-roaring collection of true stories is perfect for sharing around the campfire after a long day´s hunt. Chronicling the great hunters of America - beginning with the Plains Indians and moving through legendary hunters like Daniel Boone, Davey Crockett, Kit Carson, Buffalo Bill, Teddy Roosevelt, Ernest Hemingway, Lyndon Johnson, and more - American Hunter honors the heroes and traditions that have built America. 1.
