To anyone, who is need of a review of basic math topics ranging from grades kinder through fifth, I highly recommend this book. I have taught and tutored for the past 13 years, and have found many resources for teaching math, but never one that is as visual and detailed as this book. I always have resources for kinetic learners on hand too, but love to use this book with my students, since the visual examples alone give great ideas to parents and teachers of visual and kinetic learners. Thus far, I have found that the only downside is that it is a bit heavy for children to carry, which is why I recommend having a copy at home so your child does not need to carry it back and forth from the classroom to his or her home. The standards listed within the book are based on California standards, but if your "out-of state" (outside of California) school has a math book that is not doing the trick, I still highly recommend having this as a resource. Well worth every penny!
A textbook for California 6th grade students to learn mathematics.
Describes the beginning of the Spanish mission system in California, its expansion, and the effects of the missions on the native peoples of that area.
This is the first month-by-month guide to gardening with native plants in a state that follows a unique, nontraditional seasonal rhythm. Beginning in October, when much of California leaves the dry season behind and prepares for its own green "spring," Helen Popper provides detailed, calendar-based information for both beginning and experienced native gardeners. Each month's chapter lists gardening tasks, including repeated tasks and those specific to each season. Popper offers planting and design ideas, and explains core gardening techniques such as pruning, mulching and propagating. She tells how to use native plants in traditional garden styles, including Japanese, herb, and formal gardens, and recommends places for viewing natives. An essential year-round companion, this beautifully written and illustrated book nurtures the twin delights of seeing wild plants in the garden and garden plants in the wild.

For fifty years literary circles have referred to them as "The Group"--twelve supremely talented writers from what was dubbed "the California school". They defied convention. They changed our expectations. They were the rebels and non-conformists who gave us Something Wicked This Way Comes, Logan's Run, I Am Legend, Deathbird Stories, and Psycho. Their stories amazed, delighted, and terrified. They established the roots of today's literature of the fantastic, but their range was extraordinary--from science fiction to fantasy, from crime to horror, from the Wild West to contemporary small town America. Now these twelve talents appear together in a single anthology, with nine original stories, and three classic reprints (including a contribution by Robert Bloch which has been out of print for more than 50 years). Featuring a revealing "Group portrait" of each author, California Sorcery offers a magic blend of untethered imagination and dazzling skill--a book of wondrous surprise and rare pleasure provided by some of the world's most brilliant storytellers. Welcome to the Group: Ray Bradbury; Richard Matheson; Harlan Ellison; Ray Russell; Charles Beaumont; George Clayton Johnson; Robert Bloch; John Tomerlin; Chad Oliver; Charles E. Fritch; William F. Nolan; and Jerry Sohl.
