Celtic for Kids

[[[Celtic for Kids]]]

Discription : Described by Parents' Choice as "a dream-time album filled with story songs about times long ago, mischievous and gentle little animals and magical worlds of faerie", Celtic for Kids is a delightful collection of traditional music from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and the Isle of Man. Recorded by Irish harper and singer Barbary Grant, this Celtic playground also features fiddle, flute, uilleann pipes (played by Eric Rigler of Braveheart and Titanic fame), cello, and pennywhistle.

Celtic for Kids is full of imaginative surprises. The Milking Croons on Track 6 include a field recording of actual milking sounds (courtesy of Valentine the cow). Dance to Your Daddy on Track 15 features a 12-year-old step dancer and Barbary's own year-old twins giggle their way onto the Manx Washing Song on Track 3.

Ten of the eighteen tracks are performed in their native languages including songs in Irish, Scots Gaelic, Manx, and Welsh. English lyrics and translations are provided in the liner notes.

Ellipsis Arts will feature Track 6, the Manx Ushag Veg Ruy (Little Red Bird), on their upcoming Celtic Dreams CD. A Parents' Choice Award-winner for 2002, this albums' lively yet gentle spirit will appeal to children of all ages and to the young at heart.

More review coming soon.

I love Celtic music in general, and it is exceptionally beautiful collection of songs. I especially like the fact that many of the songs sung in their native language, and common in some of the pace of the song. voice Barbary 'and harp quite charming, and interesting to listen to many songs and sing, especially Ushag Weg Rooi, Leprechaun, and Donal Hunchback.

Whenever I listen to this recordng, I can't help but smile and tap my toes. There is a very nice variety of instrumentation and, of course, Barbary's singing is beautiful and evocative.

Imaginative Inventions: The Who, What, Where, When, and Why of Roller Skates, Potato Chips, Marbles, and Pie

[[[Imaginative Inventions: The Who, What, Where, When, and Why of Roller Skates, Potato Chips, Marbles, and Pie]]]

Discription : In verse and full color illustrations drawn by the author, this book offers young readers in the minds of great inventors, encouraging them to think creatively, as he suggests the origin of such items as roller skates, potato chips, glasses, vacuum cleaner, and more.

More review coming soon.

This book is not what I really expected. It's in a drawing/cartoon form. I was going to give it to my father-in-law for Christmas, but instead, will be giving it to my step-son. It does have neat inventions.

Did you know that there was life before Frisbees?
How long do you think doughnuts have been with us?
Who wanted the first pair of eyeglasses?
What about those Flat-Bottomed Paper Bags in which your parents bring home groceries?
Why did the passion for chewing gum stick?
How exactly did the vacuum cleaner to suck mud?

Questions, questions, odd and stupid
answered in poems both factually & frilly!

A good book to start you wondering about how things got started & why.

This book was recently listed on the website of Time magazine as one of 6 "Best Children 's book' ve never heard of." "Never heard of" part for a short time 'long .. . The authors first book (yes, I bought it too!) is equally thought-provoking for children goals 's early life, but also charming and sweet.

The Flavor Bible: The Essential Guide to Culinary Creativity, Based on the Wisdom of America's Most Imaginative Chefs

[[[The Flavor Bible: The Essential Guide to Culinary Creativity, Based on the wisdom of America 's most imaginative chefs]]]

Discription :
Winner of the 2009 James Beard Book Award for Best Book: Reference and Scholarship

More review coming soon.

The Flavor Bible is a well written and highly detailed book that leads the reader down a road to understanding flavor from somewhere between an artistic viewpoint and a magical experience.

The authors spend an extensive amount of time developing the readers understanding of what flavor really is. Much less time is spent on the clinical side of "cooking something." The latter part of the book is an exhaustive listing of flavor combinations by food, spice/herb, cuisine and more. Not just a few here and there, but numerous listings from multiple cuisines and culinary practices. If you have an ingredient, look it up, you'll find a tremendous wealth of information on ways to bring out its best flavors. All-in-all, this book should be on the shelves of every foodie right next to your most inspired cookbooks.

As Chefs, my husband and I find this book to be an invaluable resource in our cooking library. We have had it for a few months and still refer to it on a daily basis. I use it at work to help create specials and as a learning tool for exotic ingredients and flavor pairings. I also use it often at home, both in making regular meals, and for my hobby- hot water bath canning and preserving.
I recommend this book as a necessary tool for any food enthusiast who enjoys learning and letting the creative juices flow!

This is a great book for anyone, whether you're a mom or a seasoned cook, this book is a must for anyone who enjoys the art of flavorful cooking! you will learn many things you may not have known about what flavors go best with what and how to beautifully pair foods.
