Alive with the exuberance, contradictions, and variety of the Golden State, this Depression-era guide to California is more than 700 pages of information that is, as David Kipen writes in his spirited introduction, "anecdotal, opinionated, and altogether habit-forming." Describing the history, culture, and roadside attractions of the 1930s, the WPA Guide to California features some of the very best anonymous literature of its era, with writing by luminaries such as San Francisco poet Kenneth Rexroth, composer-writer- hobo Harry Partch, and authors Tillie Olsen and Kenneth Patchen.
The book has Vocabulary Page with pictures for every Key Vocabulary word in every anthology story in the Houghton Mifflin Reading Program.
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!

Meet Radar Hoverlander, a witty, gifted con artist with the mind of David Mamet, the voice of Tom Robbins, and the morals of a sailor on shore leave. What do the Merlin Game, the Penny Skim, the Doolally Snadoodle, and the Afterparty Snuke have in common? They're all the work of world-class con artist and master bafflegabber Radar Hoverlander. Radar's been "on the snuke" since childhood, but he's still looking for his California Roll, the one big scam that'll set him up in sushi for life. Trouble arrives in the stunning, sassy package of Allie Quinn-either the last true innocent or a con artist so slick she makes Radar look like a Quaker. Radar's hapless sidekick, Vic Mirplo, a lovable loser who couldn't con a kid out of a candy cane, thinks Radar's being played.

As timeless as a perpetual-motion machine, as timely as a Madoff arraignment, The California Roll brings you deep inside the world of con artistry, where every fact is fiction and the second liar never has a chance.
