The Power of Reading, Second Edition: Insights from the Research
The Power of Reading, Second Edition: Insights from the Research
by Stephen D. Krashen
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.32

4.0 out of 5 stars Reading is all you need!, 19 April 2013

Excellent text collating the research on the power of reading to increase literacy. Why torture kids with grammar, spelling, skill and drill and testing when the pleasure of reading is really what increases language ability?

Excellent product for transforming a humble slice of bread into a representation of Holy Mary Mother of God. Works best on cheap nasty white bread - not good on wholesome seeded stuff. Amen.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not specific enough, 18 April 2012

This review is from: Poodles For Dummies (Paperback)
I was looking for something very specifically about poodles, as I already own a couple of books about dog care and training. Unfortunately lots of the info in this book is quite general (how to buy a puppy etc), apart from the grooming section. Also very American in it's focus.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a solution to my problems, 18 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought this might help me clip my poodle, who isn't keen on clippers. I don't think this product is particularily easy to use, to make an even cut and in no way could substitute for clippers. Also one of the combs broke on the first attemt to clip it on and off to the scissors.

Clix Puppy House Line 2.5M
Clix Puppy House Line 2.5M

1.0 out of 5 stars Not very useful, 25 Jan 2012

This review is from: Clix Puppy House Line 2.5M (Misc.)
I already had another puppy house line made by a different company, which had a small loop at one end, big enough to thread the clip at the other end through and so make a self tightening handle to go round your wrist etc. The loop on this one is too small to do that. There's no wrist loop to put your hand through, so basically you can't attach it to anything except the dog without using another clip from somewhere. Pretty useless. Tried tying a loop but it just works free.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's bling and it works, 25 Jan 2012

My teenage daughter was delighted to find this in her stocking at Christmas - worked straight off with no need for additional driver installation. Even has a glamourous silver cord instead of the usual plastic cable. Only downside is I've found one of the chrystals lying about already, so I guess more might fall off with time. Overall, perfectly happy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Misses the mark somewhat, 16 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crap Days Out (Hardcover)
While I would agree with some of the sentiments in this book eg "Scotland is a vile country" - having lived here all my life; I feel that the author has failed to home in on some of the most truely crap outings available in Britain and includes some which I have experienced as mildly rubbish days out. Additionally the book would benefit from some colour photographs and a proper index.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ripping Steam Punk Yarn, 23 Mar 2011
I received this as a free ebook in a Library Thing giveaway. It's a very readable adventure story, set in an alternate reality. Teenage fantasy/adventure fans might enjoy it. Lewis's alternate world, where societies, technology, climate and evolution have developed differently from our own, hung together very well as a believable world.
