This is so much fun - though it's easy to make mistakes in punching notes in- even after planning the tune in pencil... still a sticker over the wrong holes quickly fixes wrong notes in the music roll. I recommend it to restless musicians, music box lovers and young people interested in early computer programming!

Superbly written and wonderfully reflective - this has provided me with much thought-provoking and encouraging material- and I highly recommend it to anyone works with older people or the dying - and in fact to anyone who ever expects to grow old and die, and more so to those who secretly believe that mortality is not their 'problem'. Beautifully and intelligently written.

This is a small plastic jar with flimsy paper slips such as one might find in a Christmas cracker - I had expected it printed on sturdy reusable card but this is unlikely to last long and I could have produced better at home.

Brilliant book - if you're not sure where to start with the whole 'prayer' thing, or wondering how to get to know God better - this is a great place to start.

1.0 out of 5 stars I was really disappointed. I wonder, 11 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tinker Thinkers (Paperback)
This book was poorly constructed, so much so that having read it I wondered if it were perhaps an extract from a series and that other volumes might explain or fill in the gaps. I expected it to set out strategies that children could use to pick up the tools of critical thinking, and that it might form a very basic introduction to philosophy or at least logic.

However it covered far less than the little it set out to to cover in the introduction (hence the fact I wondered if it was an extract from a series), and what 'tools' it did try to set out were poorly illustrated with sentences and subjects that did not engage or even fulfil the book's own criteria of reasoned thinking. I was really disappointed.
I wonder, looking at the poor and incomplete (by its own remit) content, and the immoderately high price; whether this was a little idea from some student's research paper, that they were encouraged to develop and publish- and that they published without developing. On the plus side- I can see a gap in the market for children's philosophy and thinking which I may have a go at filling myself!

5.0 out of 5 stars This chicken is no turkey!, 4 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Sandanski's Chicken (Audio CD)
A wonderful album of tunes that demand to be danced to. For those new to Klezmer music this is an enjoyable and accessible selection, performed superbly by a talented ensemble.
