Sundays at Tiffany's
Sundays at Tiffany's
by James Patterson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.24

5.0 out of 5 stars James Patterson Sundays at Tiffany's, 4 Dec 2009
This review is from: Sundays at Tiffany's (Paperback)
Not known as a children's writer. James Patterson brings excellent style and immagination with this book.
We see it through the eyes of a child and travel with her through her experiences into adulthood. We witness personnal struggles between the family unit. Although situated in America the emotion and feelings are universal. I brought this book as a fan of the writer and mistakenly thought it would be an easy change. Instead so impressed by the sheer imagination and development of each chararcter, not to forget the pure descriptive genius of the book. I allowed my 11 year old daughter to read it.
Her writing content and richness of her own essay writing improved almost overnight.
Since then I have bought two more copies for family and niece for Christmas. I reccommend this book for any one who wants to see writing at it's best.
Chapters can be used to convey emotive, descriptive and dialogue for any child at 11 plus stage.
Sundays at Tiffany's is the kind of book you can re read foreverSundays at Tiffany's

Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl (Dover Thrift Editions)
Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl (Dover Thrift Editions)
by Harriet Jacobs
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.60

5.0 out of 5 stars incidents in the life of a slive girl, 7 May 2009
I bought this book after reading that it was used as a reference by a respected author.
I didn't know what to expect as the cover is quite daunting. On reading the first few chapter's I found it increasingly difficult to put down. Using rich language to convey the true horrors that faced her and all slaves she allows the reader to enter for a while and become part of the misery.(the selling of slaves, the physical abuse) While I have a healthy interest in black history. Such first hand accounts are often hard to come by.
A true writer with a lot of courage and repect

my daughter swims for Kent and has won 100's of galas. She can only use these googles as the others either let water in or do not fit properly.
If the last think you want to think about is your googles then these are the ones to use.

The Sleeping Doll

I bought this after being totally facinated by the Book 'The Sleeping Doll'. and realised that a new co worker had previously studied the subject of Kenetics in great depth- I decided to turn the tables and study her.

This is an important book as the old eye shift and head tilt have now been replaced by far more sophisticated and subtle movements and tones. It also serves to enhance your own awareness of how you communicate through your own language both non verbal and verbal.
