  • The 20th-Century Children's Book Treasury: Picture Books and Stories to Read Aloud

    Janet Schulman, Profusely illustrated

    Hardcover (Knopf Books for Young Readers, Sept. 14, 1998)
    Unparalleled in scope and quality and designed for reading aloud and sharing, this splendid anthology brings together some of the most memorable and beloved children's books of our time. Here are classics such as Madeline and Curious George; contemporary bestsellers such as Guess How Much I Love You and The Stinky Cheese Man; Caldecott Medal winners such as Make Way for Ducklings and Where the Wild Things Are; and family favorites such as Goodnight Moon, The Sneetches, Winnie-the-Pooh, and Alexander & The Terrible, No Good Very Bad Day, soon to be a motion picture. The selections range from concept books and wordless books to picture books and short read-aloud stories, and represent the complete array of childhood themes and reading needs: ABCs, number and color books, stories about going to bed and going to school; tales about growing up, siblings, parents, and grandparents; animal stories, fantasies; fables; magical stories; stories about everyday life--and more. This beautiful edition includes a recommended list of books published in the time since this anthology's original compilation, including Caldecott Honors Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! and Olivia, with descriptive annotations intended to guide parents to these new books and new voices of the 21st century. Also included are an introduction from editor Janet Schulman, capsule biographies of the 62 writers and artists represented in the collection, color-coded running heads indicating age levels, and indexes. As a gift, a keepsake, and a companion in a child's first steps toward a lifelong love of reading, The 20th Century Children's Book Treasury belongs in every family's bookcase.

  • Incredible Visual Illusions: You Won't Believe Your Eyes!

    Al Seckel, Profusely illustrated

    Paperback (Arcturus Publishing, March 15, 2005)
    Seckel, Al. Incredible Visual Illusions. Kettering, Index Books, 2005. 22,5 x 28 cm. 256 pages. Original Softcover. Excellent condition with minor signs of external wear. Includes for example: Brightness and contrast illusions / Scintillating illusions / Twisted Cord Illusions / Figure and Ground illusions / Estimation illusions / Stereo Illusions / Shadow illusions etc. etc. An optical illusion (also called a visual illusion) is characterized by visually perceived images that differ from objective reality. The information gathered by the eye is processed in the brain to give a perception that does not tally with a physical measurement of the stimulus source. There are three main types: literal optical illusions that create images that are different from the objects that make them, physiological illusions that are the effects of excessive stimulation of a specific type (brightness, colour, size, position, tilt, movement), and cognitive illusions, the result of unconscious inferences. Pathological visual illusions arise from a pathological exaggeration in physiological visual perception mechanisms causing the aforementioned types of illusions. Optical illusions are often classified into categories including the physical and the cognitive or perceptual, and contrasted with optical hallucinations. (Wikipedia)
