Children's Book

Critical Reflection

It is difficult to write a children's book because there are so many different things to think about before it can be accomplished. The style has to be interesting enough to keep the interest of the audience, no matter whether that is adults or children, but if a book does not flow correctly a child will sense it and be bored. Also, there is the matter of what age level the book is for. The selected subject matter has to be appropriate for the age of the targeted audience and it has to be presented in such a way that it does not lose the young reader. A young child will also want interesting illustrations that can hold interest.

The best advice may be to research others who have been successful with a certain age group nor genre and see what they did. Pat Mora, a…… [Read More]

Yertle the Turtle This Story Is Set

Words: 578 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 81466263

Yertle the Turtle" This story is set in a pond dominated by turtles and that is presumably organized in a hierarchical way with king Yertle in charge of the community of turtles. Yertle stands on a rock that represents its throne and the other turtles are 'forced' to act in accordance with its wishes.

Yertle is an eponymous character and one of the central characters in the story while Mack, the other central character, is the turtle at the bottom of the pile and the individual who decides to overthrow Yertle's authority.

The main theme in the story is related to how an individual can lose everything if he or she keeps trying to get more power.

The conflict involves Yertle's tendency to want more and Mack's determination to do something about it.

The exposition shows Yertle as a turtle who is not satisfied with its position. The rising action…… [Read More]

Words: 2352 Length: 7 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 47786566

In addition, the human pronoun "her" is used to refer to the mother penguin, while "it" would have been a more appropriate choice if the author wanted to reinforce the penguins' animal aspects (BBC 3, 8). hile the author does use the term "chick" throughout the book, mixing it with the human-like terms further allow the child reader to grasp the non-fiction elements of the book while still remaining interested and emotionally involved in the story. Evoking sadness in the reader, a photograph shows the mother walking away from her baby. Through the use of these words and illustrations, the fact that the penguins are animals living in a natural home is emphasized, while children are still engaged through the mild human-like qualities that are ascribed to the animals (BBC 3-4).

Thus, a comparison of the personification used in The Cat and the Hat and in Baby Penguins yields great…… [Read More]

Curriculum: Catch a Little Fox

CUICULUM: CAT IN THE HAT

Good afternoon Judge Jacobs, how is everybody doing? Today, we have a case that needs to be defended. ecently, my client, Donna Mills, used a book called "Cat in the Hat" by Dr. Seuss. Today, I stand to support the book. The reason for this defense is simple. The children's book is being accused of having not developing phonemic awareness. As we know, Phonemic awareness is important since it is critical to reading and spelling accomplishment. Children who cannot decide and operate the sounds inside spoken words have trouble distinguishing and learning the vital print=sound association that is critical to quick reading and spelling achievement. Phonological awareness is essential for learning to read any alphabetic writing system. And plenty of research shows that trouble with phoneme awareness and other phonological proficiencies are a predictor of poor reading and spelling growth.…… [Read More]

MOVIE: The Lorax, 2012 film based on Dr. Seuss book and Directed by Chris enaud and Kyle Balda

I was initially hesitant about going to see what I perceived as a "children's'" movie until two friends suggested that this was a movie with many layers of meaning. I did a bit of research on it, and found that it looked interesting. The Lorax is a computer-animated 3-D musical based on Dr. Seuss' book with the same name. It is the fourth time in recent years that a Seuss book has been turned into a major motion picture. The movie has a number of well-known Hollywood stars using their vocal talents: Danny DeVito as the Lorax; Zac Efron as Ted Wiggins; Taylor Swift as Audrey; and Betty White as Ted's Grandmother.

intersectionality, power, and privilege, it is impossible not to wonder if it is human nature to seek, gain, and preserve power at the expense of others and lose all concept of the consequences. As an optimist, I believe that we can all change. In The Sneeches and Other Stories, Dr. Seuss also offers some hope for humanity, showing that it is possible to recognize the essential equality of all people and the importance of actively changing our own behavior to create meaningful changes in society. What Dr. Seuss seems to suggest, and what Johnson talks about in the Introduction and first few sections of Privilege, Power, and Difference, is that it is often up to a few individuals to make the changes that matter.

Of course, it really helps to be made aware of the issues first. I think if we take away one thing from this class, it is…… [Read More]

Witnesses reported the noticeable odor of decay was present and dried mucous on one of her nostrils. The child was dressed in a light colored long-sleeved turtleneck and light-colored pants (similar to pajama bottoms). Her distraught father placed her on the floor by the front door. A white cord was tightly embedded around her neck similar to the string around her wrist. On her neck at the base of her throat was a red circular mark about the size of a quarter (World Law Direct Forums web site).

Based on her own experience Det. Arndt believed the child was dead and that she had been dead for some time. John amsey told Det. Arndt that he had found JonBenet in the wine cellar under a white blanket, that her wrists were tied above her head, and that a piece of duct tape was over her mouth.

Black No More

There is a book I used to read when I was younger by Dr. Seuss called The Sneetches. The main plot is about two groups of Sneetches: "The Star-Bell Sneetches," who "had bellies with stars," and "the Plain-Belly Sneetches" who "had none (stars) upon thars."

Naturally, those with the stars believed that they were much better than those without. They would walk around bragging and looking down on everyone else, "We're the best kind of Sneetch on the beaches.' With their snoots in the air, they would sniff and they'd snort, 'We'll have nothing to do with the Plain-Belly sort!'" Such a situation is prime for Sylvester McMonkey McBean, who is always looking for a way to make some quick money. He sets up a machine that adds stars to the individuals without them. Of course, the ones with stars then want theirs removed. McBean is pleased…… [Read More]

Introduction to Sociology: The Lorax

1 & 4

The aspects of capitalism that I personally appreciate are the ideas of a free market and the idea that anybody can bring their goods to the market place. I appreciate the fact that in a capitalistic society, there is the opportunity for people being able to compete in the market with products, letting consumers choose from among the lot that which they think is best for the cost. What I find worrisome is that capitalism can lend itself to unrestrained greed and complete disregard for everything that is external to oneself, as Dr. Seuss shows in The Lorax (jefonty, 2013). The Lorax teaches the zero-sum game paying Once-ler that “unless” the latter “cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” In other words, in order for capitalism to be applied safely in society, individuals and businesses in…… [Read More]

Hopefully, regardless of what happens in the rest of the communication world and media, such magazines either in print, electronic or digital form will continue to amaze children.

nfortunately, most young adult books have hit rock bottom, dealing with death, abuse, divorce, sexuality and all the other topics that these youth are bombarded with day after day. It is recognized that youths need to deal with the problems that are facing them, and living in a fantasy world is not helpful. However, do they ever have a time to "chill" as they say it? However, the Twilight Vampire Series is really not the answer to this. It has, what is said, little "redeeming value."

Unfortunately, most young adult books have hit rock bottom, dealing with death, abuse, divorce, sexuality and all the other topics that these youth are bombarded with day after day. It is recognized that youths need to deal with the problems that are facing them, and living in a fantasy world is not helpful. However, do they ever have a time to "chill" as they say it? However, the Twilight Vampire Series is really not the answer to this. It has, what is said, little "redeeming value."

It's difficult deciding on a best YA book and not going back to the classics. The best bet is finding a book that offers imagination, education and entertainment. There are few, but Rebecca Stead's When You Reach Me comes close. It combines the best elements of recent classics, such as A Wrinkle in Time as well as fun TV game shows like the $20,000 Pyramid, and a story about a girl, Miranda, whose structured world becomes a little more interesting. Miranda's bestest friend Sal stops talking to her he is beat up by Marcus. Marcus then challenges Miranda with arguments about her favorite book, A Wrinkle in Time, and finds flaws in L'Engle's time-travel narrative. Next, Miranda starts receiving notes from someone who seems to know the future. The book's earlier setting in 1980 gets away from all the heavy themes of today and back into "easier" life with Mom on the $20,000 Pyramid.

This is a book that can be enjoyed by readers and nonreaders alike and can be utilized in a variety of different ways for book reports. The teen and pre-teen readers can rely on many different visual arts, TV/film and drama to convey what they have learned from the book. It is also a great book for smaller groups of students to work together for a team project. Forget the horrible Twilight and instead focus on multithematic books like When You Reach Me.

I am not sure what I expected about my check-up. I suppose I thought that the new relationship I had the OBGYN because of my pregnancy would continue on as a special relationship. I was wrong. My visit was, once again, the sterile, medical kind, and not the kind that I had with him while I was pregnant. My OBGYN performed the post surgical exam, and then spoke with me briefly.

"You're healthy," he said, "and I would recommend beginning again, as soon as you're ready, to get pregnant again. If that's what you." Then he was gone, and the nurse came in with a prescription.

"This, she said, is a prescription for a mild pain killer for cramping. Really, it's just a prescription strength aspirin." Then she looked at me and added, "I know what you're going through."

16).

In comparing a number of literary elements in one story, Smith and Wiese (2006) contend that at times, when attempting to transform an old story into a modern multicultural version, cultural meanings of the original story may be lost. In turn, the literature does not subject the reader to another culture. For instance, in the story about the fisherman, that Smith and Wiese access, the plot remains similar plot, however, significant changes transform the reported intent to make the story multicultural. Changes included the fisherman's daughter's stated name, being changed from one common to her culture to Maha. Instead of God, as written in the original version, the reference notes "Allah." Other changes Smith and Wiese point out include:

For example, Walker and Hennig add that, "It has frequently been found that children (particularly boys) in divorced, mother-custody families exhibit lower levels of well-being than children in intact families, with more externalizing and internalizing behavior problems and lower levels of cognitive and social competence" (p. 64). My son is also currently at a formative period that has special significance for single-parents families. For instance, Walker and Hennig also point out that, "Single-mother families are often affectively charged, with high instrumental affection combined with high negativity and conflict, particularly in the transition to adolescence" (1997, p. 64).

The "transition to adolescence" can be a rocky period in anyone's life, of course, and it is reasonable to expect my son to experience some problems in general and with me in particular during this transitional period.

Competition therefore often takes place at the distributor level, as gaining access to retailers is critical. Even a company like ebags.com only carries a select handful of manufacturers.

The implications for this are significant for Kidage. The chosen strategy of marketing just one bag is probably the wrong strategy. In order to meet the needs of major manufacturers, Kidage is competing against firms that offer a wide range of children's bags, of different types. For Kidage to gain access to retailers, it will need to match the range offered by major competitors like North Face and Firefly. In doing this, Kidage can gain access to important retail channels. Then, the company can put the benefits of each particular bag up against the price/benefits of whatever company's bags are competing in a given retail channel.

Children's Poetry Question 1 Both

Words: 678 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 63960910

The poem depicts a fantasy machine that could magically do a child's homework. The machine spews out an answer that the child narrator himself knows is wrong, mocking the idea that a machine can do a better job. Imagery in both "ild Strawberries" and in "Homework Machine" is reflective of a child's imagination: the universal wish that homework would disappear; the tendency to take adult terms literally and therefore humorously.

Eloise Greenfield also relies heavily on musicality to empower her poems. Her poem "ay Down in the Music" is an obvious affirmation of the poet's appreciation of the potential power of music on the minds of young children. Less reliant on formal rhyme schemes than Silverstein, Greenfield's poems are also freer in verse. The strength of her poems to capture the inner workings of a child's mind is precisely in their lack of formality and Greenfield's liberal use of novel…… [Read More]

Hospitals Are Catering to Customers

Words: 2466 Length: 9 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 68914328

Heart hospitals are foregoing the traditional systems with a model known as patient-focused care. In this model patients stay in one room throughout the entire procedure, rather than the traditional method of waiting for beds to open as they transfer from one unit to another. This one-room approach also works to reduce the time spent in the hospital. The Heart Hospital, which has 12 beds, usually sends patients home in three days, in comparison to five to seven days in a conventional hospital.

In addition, medical staff is generally paid higher salaries at specialty hospitals. Nurses can earn between $5 and $7 more per hour than their counterparts in traditional hospitals (tringer, 2001).

A study by health care research firm HCIA.com in Maryland demonstrates that the amenities of specialty hospitals are winning over more and more patients (tringer, 2001). The study revealed that two public hospitals performed between 25% and…… [Read More]

Is it utopian to believe that "peace can make right"? That such sayings, as "Do unto others as they do unto you," and "To each one his (her) due" can actually be followed in a positive way?

The author, T.H. White was a pacifist, and wrote this book during WWII. He uses the Aurthurian story to stress his own belief that violence and aggression are not the answer to life's challenges.

If it's not logical don't do it. If it's logical but it's not fair, don't do it. If it's logical and it's fair, but it won't work…don't do it.

Mazda

Is the Mazda Lorax ad good?

The Mazda CX- 5 SUV was advertised in 2012 with a tie-in to the Lorax movie. The advertisement promotes the SUV using Lorax themes. The Lorax is a Dr. Seuss book that is based around the concept of corporate greed creating environmental degradation, and the book has a strong environmentalist message. The ad seeks to improve the environmental perception of Mazda, loosely promoting the company's Skyactiv technology. This technology is not really explained other than it seeks to improve fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance. The CX -- 5/Lorax ad is not good, because it represents the concept of greenwashing. The cartoon Lorax character and its themes are used to present this vehicle as environmentally friendly, which is deceptive.

Greenwashing refers to the use of marketing techniques into to mislead customers into thinking that certain products or their production processes are environmentally friendly. Typically,…… [Read More]

Civil Disobedience

One might think that finding parallels between a Dr. Seuss story and the real-life story of Rosa Parks does not make sense. However, that is less than true as the parallels and commonalities are early and often when it comes to comparing the history of one and the story created on the other. Indeed, civil disobedience has taken on many forms but it is seemingly the least violent yet poignant events that seem to be the most effective. It was something that Martin Luther King Jr. greatly touted and Rosa Park and her refusal to move from her seat was just another example of that.
