When on a summer evening, astrophysicist Hubert Reeves went for a walk with his granddaughter, he was immediately assaulted by her questions: 'How big is the Universe? How far are the stars? Are there other universes like ours?'. This little book is the result of their discussion - a very clear and fulfilling explanation on where we come from and our place in the Universe. Here is a perfect occasion for everybody, and not only children, to revise their conceptions about the cosmos.

Four delightful stories make up this children's book, each one based upon a woman's grandchildren and each one filled with exciting adventures, faraway places and authentic characters. Marion Gillcrist, or "Oma" as she is known to her grandchildren, uses her vivid imagination to put her grandchildren in the most unusual places. "Ransom" takes Marie and Erin to Colorado where they survive not only a kidnapping, but the Colorado wilderness. Hanna and Joe go in search of a pirate's treasure and break a secret code in "The Piece of Eight"; Liam, Jacob, Thomas, Lily and Olivia explore a haunted house in Rhode Island in "The Watson Place"; and Ellie, Georgia, Danny and Isabel rescue King Richard the Lion Heart from a dungeon in Austria in "Coeur de Lion." Follow the adventures of these irrepressible and enchanting children as they use their wits and wisdom to battle buccaneers, bandits, and medieval adversaries. Gillcrist expertly captures childlike wonder and excitement with history and valuable life lessons. Adventures of My Grandchildren will become a permanent part of the family library and a book that you and your children will read time and time again. Marion Gillcrist is the mother of 10 children, grandmother of 36, and great-grandmother of 6. Mrs. Gillcrist did advanced work in the Humanities field of Child Development in the states and lived in Austria for 20 years where she did extensive seminal research regarding male teenagers, and established a home and educational program to assist young Polish refugees. She lives with her husband in Boca Raton, Florida. Publisher's website: www.eloquentbooks.com/AdventuresofMyGrandchildren.html

In this inspiring series of letters to his grandchildren, David Suzuki offers grandfatherly advice mixed with stories from his own remarkable life and explores what makes life meaningful. He challenges his grandchildren — and us — to do everything at full tilt. He explains why sports, fishing, feminism, and failure are important; why it is dangerous to deny our biological nature; and why First Nations must lead a revolution. Drawing on his own experiences and the wisdom he has gained over his long life, he decries the lack of elders and grandparents in the lives of many people, especially immigrants, and champions the importance of heroes. And he even has something to say about fashion. The book also provides an intimate look at Suzuki’s life as a father and grandfather with letters that are chock-full of anecdotes about his children and grandchildren when they were small. As he ponders life’s deepest questions and offers up a lifetime of wisdom, Suzuki inspires us all to live with courage, conviction, and passion.

Gone are the days of grandchildren growing up next door to or down the street from their grandparents. The opportunity for these youngsters to learn from their elders has diminished. But author David Nagle found a way to mentor his grandchildren and be a practical source of wisdom. He sent them e-mails. In E-mails to My Grandchildren, Nagle shares a collection of these e-mails that served to inform his grandchildren, giving them a sense of their roots. Offering a sophisticated spectrum of mentoring advice, the e-mails contain an entertaining mix of personal stories of growing up in another age, grandfatherly advice about living fully, and information about how to stay healthy. Meant to be savored and read again and again, E-mails to My Grandchildren challenges Nagle’s grandchildren to learn new things and to learn new ways of thinking about old things. This sampler of warm, biographical stories is both timely and timeless.

Advice For My Grandchildren is a collection of anecdotes and ideas inspired by the author's grandparents, with whom he spent many boyhood hours. As generations and circumstances change, so do the experiences of our elders, and they cannot resist passing these experiences on to their offspring. In the minds of grandparents this advice is invaluable and timeless. In the minds of grandchildren it is often boring and irrelevant. This collection is broken loosely into three categories entitled People, Places, and Things. Reminiscences are not chosen for any special purpose other than to pass on some of the lessons the author has learned, often at great expense or embarrassment. This brief volume may help grandchildren everywhere get a jump on the competition, if not on life itself. We can always hope that they might pass some of these stories on to their grandchildren, perhaps 50 or 100 years from now. What better legacy?

This writer wanted to know how all things worked so the question of how the Universe works plagued him forever. BUT he wasnt able to agree with the so-called experts there were so many of them and they didnt all agree with each other. So the question never was answered. Then, one day, while at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, a part of the answer was presented to me in a moment. But it was too simple, so I kept looking and after a few minutes it occurred to me that there are actually THREE sides of a coin, this side, that side, and the in between inside that holds all coins together..

Two themes seem to emerge repeatedly when reading through this volume. One is 'consensus' and the other is 'search'. There was a strong consensus during the Congress that children and families were the major and foremost concern of all present, regardless of their geographic origin or professional background. This concern was often expressed in terms of commitment to or as goal for the international mental health movement for the years to come. The second theme, 'search', represents an effort to translate this concern into activities: search for concrete, immediate goals, for ways and means of translating into actual programs and projects, for interested people to carry on the work and better ways to train them to do the work well, for ways to obtain support, and lastly, search for ways of coordinating efforts of people in different parts of the world. All these and other matters are taken up in the discussions in this volume. The complexity of problems encountered in a rapidly changing world and the diversity of resources available in different parts of the world, make the task of searching difficult and sometimes confusing. In spite of the earnest efforts made, the results may be inconclusive and some of those pro posed can be regarded only as hypotheses or ideas for experimentation.

“In a feeble attempt to deceive mankind, Stephen W. Hawking and Richard Dawkins, among others of their ilk, have painstakingly persevered in creating a Godless society, in the hope intelligent people will accept the theory of evolution as the source that caused the universe to exist. Bringing forward arguments, they create a multitude of problems they cannot answer, resulting in guesses and lies. Not knowing where we came from and why we are here, scientists will never cease their search for the Truth. I have written this book in refutation of their claims and expounded on the subject for clarification.”
