A definitive Chemistry book which covers among others: matter and change, scientific measurement, atomic structure, chemical names and formulas.
Two lovable hippos teach the meaning of friendship in five separate vignettes: "Split Pea Soup," "The Flying Machine," "The Tub," "The Mirror," "The Tooth. "
When you can't stand split pea soup and you can't stand to hurt your friend Martha's feelings after she's made pot after pot of it, what else can you do but hide the soup so she thinks you ate it? And if your loafers are the only place available, well, it's all in the name of friendship. Friendship is friendship even if you are hippopotamuses. At least that's the way George looks at things and even though he doesn't fool Martha, all ends happily with chocolate chip cookies instead of split pea soup. Friendship proves a delicate thing even when it exists between not so delicate creatures as George and Martha. Loving and lovable a hippopotamus might well be, but delicate he is not. Even so, George and Martha seem to know full well the joys and delights of having a friend to cheer you and care, someone who will tell you the truth and go to great lengths to spare your feelings. In his first picture book, James Marshall charms us all with his wonderfully appealing characters, George and Martha, and his own special view of friendship.
George and Martha are hippos who love each other. In these five short stories they go on great adventures and show their friendship with one another.
Five stories about two best friends. 1. the tight rope: Martha was all poise and grace on the high wire until George came along. 2. The Diary: Someone was looking over Martha's shoulder and into her diary! 3. The Icky Story: George's table manners needed improvement and Martha found a way to improve them. 4. The Big Scare: George thought it would be fun to scare Martha, but then it was George's turn to be scared. 5. The Amusement Park: George and Martha had fun at the park but Martha was saving the best for last. This file should make an excellent embossed braille copy.
From the book jacket: George and Martha, those incomparable hippos, will delight readers of all ages, in these five, funny, warm and wonderful stories. "James Marshall's five stories about two great friends are really five mini- farces in which the dignity and the bulk of the hippos is in contrast with the ludicrousness of their situations... The secret of Mr. Marshall's success lies not just in the freshness of his sense of the ridiculous, but in the carefulness of his control and editorial judgment." New York Times This file should make an excellent embossed braille copy.
George and Martha are still riding 'round and 'round on their delightful whirlwind of friendship. James Marshall's gentle hippopotamuses are back again, giving us, as always, delightful lessons in being a friend. For example, sometimes it is okay to play a little joke. But Martha learns it is not always wise to comment on a friend's artistic ability. Yet their disagreements never come between them. As George observes, it's nice that friends don't have to like the same things. As long as they like each other as much as George and Martha do.
"With the same delightfully irreverent spirit that he brought to his retellings of Little Red Riding Hood, Marshall enlivens another favorite ... The illustrations are fraught with delicious humor and detail. Like its predecessor, perfect for several uses, from picture book hour to beginning reading".--Kirkus Reviews. Caldecott Honor Medal.

Reading literature often leads to other kinds of reading experiences. For example, you may read about a historical event in this book and then do research on that event for social studies class. When you read encyclopedia articles, newspapers, magazines, Web pages, and textbooks, you are reading for information. This kind of reading requires you to use a different set of skills. Where do stories come from? Some are whispered in the glow of a campfire. Others are discovered in a book. Wherever you find them, all stories begin in someone's imagination. Stories that come from a writer's imagination are called fiction. Two forms of fiction are short stories and novels. Both contain the elements of plot, character, setting, and theme. Sometimes a writer bases a fictional story on actual events or on real people, adding invented elements such as additional characters or dialogue. The purpose of fiction is to entertain, but it can also provide the reader with a deeper understanding of life.
