Describes why animals build homes and the different types they make, including nests, dens, tunnels, and burrows.
Helen Carmichael Porter has been touring her stories about victims and bullies for over seven years. The stories inThe Bully and M...e are first person accounts by both victims and bullies. The victims try to change the situation and usually, but not always, succeed. The stories are descriptive narratives of what happens to real people. They are based on Porter's observations, countless interviews, personal experience, and imagination. The book explores the idea that victims and bullies are two sides of the same coin and that the healing of both lies in dealing with this paradox. There is not a lot of real violence in these stories; there is some, and much of it is implied in threats, taunts, gossip, e-mails, gestures, and language. Most of the bullying is teasing and it is always designed to torment and ridicule. The Bully and Me also refers to biblical and folk tales in the comments showing how bullying is not a new problem. This is not a self-help book; it is about listening to and thinking about the stories of bullying that happen everyday in our homes, our schools, and our communities. read more

Kurt Benson and his friends Riley and Jordan used to look forward to summer camp each year up in Wisconsin. But that was before th...e camp opened up to kids who came from some pretty rough homes a couple of years ago. Then, this summer, things got a little more interesting when a rich kid showed up. He didn’t come by bus, minivan, or car like most campers. This guy arrived in a helicopter. Plus, his suitcases were filled with candy bars and other things he used to get kids to do things for him. This summer, some of the roughest boys Kurt had ever seen came to camp. Right from the start, they caused all kinds of trouble. Then, one night, there was a huge explosion as fireworks went off. They were supposed to hit Kurt’s cabin, but something went terribly wrong. Why did Kurt risk his own safety to save the life of one of the worst guys at camp? His actions would change Rudy’s life from that point on. read more
The Creative Magic of Pavel Volume Two-Magnetic Tricks FLASH ROPE RESTORATION - The performer begins by holding a length of rope w...ith an end in each hand. Suddenly the ends of the rope knot automatically thus forming a large loop. The loop is sectioned in the center. Now the knot is untied and-presto-in a flash the two pieces turn visibly into a continuous length. A spectator is allowed to pull on it. This trick will fool even magicians PERFECT LOOP PENETRATION amp LINKING RINGS CLIMAX - This routine uses the same rope loop as above. Three large flat cardboard rings are handed out for examination. The rings penetrate magically one by one onto the loop. Then in the same way the rings are released from the rope all at the same time. Finally the three rings link. This is surprising and totally unexpected finish SLICK ROPE SEQUENCE - A length of rope is cut into two pieces short and long. First the pieces visibly equalize. Then the ropes are knotted into two separate loops. In a logical sequel the loops link. To finish the knots are untied. In the process the loops turn automatically back into a continuous length of rope. Straight and clean BAFFLING ROPE RESTORATION - A spectator is invited to examine a length of rope and is asked to cut it at any position he wishes. The two rope pieces are placed into an ordinary empty paper bag. The bag is blown up and burst. When the rope is pulled away from the crumpled paper it is seen to be one piece This trick uses a totally original method and is a fooler. MODERN SILK TYING - Explanations - As an introduction to silk magnets Pavel performs the Ultimate 20th Century Silks using a chair servante and a novel version of his original Crystal Tube alias Silk-Blow-Tie. The explanations also include Pavels personal handling of a handy device that will enable you to vanish a silk in a very clean way. MAGNETIC TIP WAND - Pavel introduces a new prop in magic a wand fitted with a rope magnet. He demonstrates two ways to use it. A vanished silk appears mysteriously attached to the tip of a wand. The use of a Sleeve Pull Vanisher completes the explanation. An anti-gravity effect occurs when the wand laid at the edge of a table remains suspended in the air. UNIQUE COIN IN BALLOON - A clear balloon is inflated and held in one hand while a large coin is picked up with the other. The performer taps the coin against the balloon and it penetrates the balloon visibly. The balloon with the coin is handed out for examination. The subtlety of the method will please you. CABARET RISING CARD - A spectator is given a deck of cards and is asked to freely select any card show it to the others present place the card into the deck and finally return the cards to the case. After this is done the performer takes the case and opens it. The spectators chosen card slowly rises out of it GREEN ROPE MYSTERY - The magician knots a length of green rope into a loop which he places over his head. Then the magician picks up a yellow rope and ties a firm knot in the center. He places the rope behind his neck to join the green loop and brings both ropes in front. When the ropes are pulled apart it is seen that the yellow knot has jumped onto the green loop. The knot is untied to reveal that the green loop has a yellow section in the center. Classic Pavel read more
I pointed toward a figure that looked to be seven to eight feet tall crossing the field below us. It looked like a large hairy gor...illa-like figure humped over and lumbering along. Several of the kids gasped when they finally saw it. The creature stopped and tilted his head to the sky and let out another bellowing cry, “Aah, ugh.” I got goose bumps up and down my arms. The hairs on my body stood on end. Susie grabbed my arm and buried her head into my forearm.
