This is the epic, true and long overdue story of the young explorer who put the first ever case for the creation of a new species, providing what Charles Darwin called the "beautiful proof" for Natural Selection. The major discovery of Batesian Mimicry was developed from Bates's fascinating 11-year journey and study of butterflies in the Amazon rainforest. He noted how certain animals adopt the look of others to deceive predators and gain an advantage to survive. Little known to the public, Bates made other crucial contributions to biology: he collected over 14,000 specimens, of which over 8,000 were at the time new to science. He went on to become the administrator for the Royal Geographical Society and transformed it into an institution which combined exploration with academic research and was responsible for placing geography on the school curriculum. This important book reassesses Bates's life and finally places both the man and his work in their rightful place alongside the other greats.

Magnus Thorvald, as strong and stubborn as the oak he carves, steers clear of loose women since his ex-wife’s betrayal. Kat Donaldson, thirty-something free spirit, suburban Philadelphia art gallery owner, enthusiastic sex-club devotee, meets the first man who won’t say yes. When Kat hears about an obscure artist’s uncommon talent, she tracks him down to a rural corner of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where he lives in a chilly stone barn like a monk. Overwhelmed by the power of his carvings, she offers to represent him. Her blatantly sexy attire warns Magnus away from the tall, willowy redhead even as she ignites unwanted feelings of lust. Despising his body’s instant reaction, he turns her down flat. This only makes Kat more determined—she has a reputation for launching new talent. Plus, the sight of this magnificent Viking, six-five with blond hair and glacier-blue eyes, kicks her libido into instant lust. When Magnus’ irrepressible younger brother agrees to pose nude for Kat’s art class, all hell breaks loose as he tries to make Magnus jealous enough to go after what he wants.

Butterflies animate our summers but the fifty-nine species found in the British Isles can be surprisingly elusive. Some bask unseen at the top of trees in London parks; others lurk at the bottom of damp bogs in Scotland. A few survive for months, while other ephemeral creatures only fly for three days. Several are virtually extinct. This bewitching book charts Patrick Barkham's quest to find each of them - from the Adonis Blue to the Dingy Skipper - in one unforgettable summer. Wry, attentive, full of infectious delight and curiosity, written with a beautifully light touch, The Butterfly Isles is a classic of British nature writing.

Catherine M. O'Callaghan, Patricia A. Antonacci, Lucy P. Murphy, Florence D. Musiello, and Eugene Wolfson "Using Children's Literature Across the Curriculum: A Handbook of Instructional Strategies" This resource uniquely offers preservice and inservice teachers templates for using quality children's literature to implement six themes across grades K-8. The themes are based on national curriculum standards and text sets are carefully selected to facilitate discussion, analysis, and problem solving across the grades. "Using Children s Literature Across the Curriculum, "provides teachers with a guide to using multilayered texts to facilitate students attainment of critical literacy. It is designed to be a supplemental guide for teachers in designing literacy instruction. The instructional sequence includes collaborative inquiry activities across the curriculum to extend each theme to math, science, technology and social studies. Teachers are shown how to incorporate family literacy with a component entitled Home School Connections and to differentiate instruction for individual learners with a section entitled On Your Own Activities . The theme concludes with a critical literacy activity that applies the content knowledge of the theme with collaborative inquiry. ""I m excited to have this tool to share with the teachers in our program ..." "I had been given this as a first year teacher, I would have been thrilled. It s wonderful all encompassing."" - Susan T. Weakland, Pathways Educational Program, Curriculum Coordinator, Moultrie, GA "Highly recommended!" - Dr. Gail Singleton Taylor, Old Dominion University, Darden College of Education, Norfolk, VA ""A useful reference for teachers (new and experienced) to use to see how interdisciplinary work can be accomplished. It provides good examples, activities, and references that would provide a successful first experience for teachers working" "with thematic studies."" - Lisa Grundstrom, Bloomington Public Schools, K-2 Teacher, Bloomington, MN "
