And, to make things worse, Roger has enough trouble marauding at home that he's not sure he can do it on his own to earn a merit badge. At Camp WannaTippaTrashCan, all kinds of adventures await that are beyond anything Roger had imagined. He meets lots of Raccoon kids just like him, and together they shout camp cheers, weave baskets, and tuck and tumble for nighttime marauding missions. As the week goes by, Roger begins to conquer his homesickness and discovers the mysteries of the camp's complicated history with Humans. During his adventures, Roger befriends a homesick Human boy who helps him pull off the best marauding mission ever. Just like his dad always said, “If you're going to do something totally crazy, it must also be totally brave.” By the end of the week, Roger can't wait for his next chance to return to Camp WannaTippaTrashCan. But, will Roger ever see his new Human friend again? read more

A finales del siglo XIX el desarrollo científico había alcanzado una altura insospechada que abría nuevos campos de investigaci...ón. En su estudio atestado de mapas , recortes de prensa científica y libros de viajes, Julio Verne investiga las posibilidades que ofrecen estos avances en la mecánica, la electricidad o la física. ¿Acaso no sería posible que el hombre viajara a la Luna? ¿O que pudieran explorarse las profundidades submarinas a bordo de un ingenio mecánico? La Imaginación, la literatura de aventuras y el conocimiento geográfico y técnico, bastarán a Julio Verne para proporcionarnos las fuertes emociones ante lo inexplorado, inaugurando el género de la ciencia ficción. El tiempo se encargaría después de hacer realidad la fantasía de sus novelas. Con 20.000 Leguas de Viaje Submarino el autor quiere mostrarnos los escenarios vedados a la mirada humana, los prodigios naturales que pueblan los abismos marinos o las posibilidades de un mundo nacido de las profundidades oceánicas. Allí encontramos al enigmático Captain Nemo y su artilugio submarino: el sobrecogedor Nautilus. read more

Success in studying isn't difficult. But one must first learn the secrets of "how to study." Why is it that every new teacher one ...inherits along the path to graduating high school has assumed that the teachers from the past grades have taught their students how to study? They may have taught course content, but not the way in which one learns the content. Because of this, students are working in ways that do not maximize their true potential. Raise Your GPA 1 Full Grade helps create an even playing field for all learners. The areas covered in this text are: time management, listening skills/note taking, reading for speed and comprehension, writing with a purpose, taking the fear out of examinations, how to outline, using mnemonics, and how to use resources (library, Internet, dictionary etc.) Raise Your GPA 1 Full Grade calls for no extra homework, and is as easy to use as working your way around the Monopoly board and collecting $200.00. It's nice when someone learns they can succeed! read more

The Little People were a happy and peaceful clan who lived in the crater of a wonderful volcano. There, they were surrounded by th...eir favorite smells-sweet sulfur, in particular-and were always warm and comfortable.
