great workout

This DVD provides 3 20-minute workouts, intended to be used progressively as your conditioning gets better (i.e. start with level 1 and then as you get in better shape, move on to level 2, then level 3). Each session covers cardio, strength training and abs in one short high energy workout. The workouts are challenging. Jillian is motivating without being obnoxious. Great for fitting in a workout when you don't have a lot of time.

Hansel and Gretel is one of the darker fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm. But Rachel Isadora's wonderful illustrations brighten the book. I especially love the illustrations of Hansel and Gretel themselves. And the evil witch is quite scary looking.
A trip to the beach

This book has simple words, a gentle pace and great wood-block illustrations of Sally the black laborador on vacation at the beach (which is probably Martha's Vineyard for New England enthusiasts). A good summer book.
funny and nice scenery

This is another fun and clever "Olivia" book. This one includes both drawings of Olivia and her family and background photographs of scenes in Venice. A good introduction to Italy and Venice (and gelato!).
cute illustrations

Sheep on a Ship is a rhyming book about a group of sheep that head off on their ship, encounter storms, build a raft and finallyl make it to land safely. Cute hand drawn illustrations. I didn't think the rhyming and tempo were quite as good as in Sheep in a Jeep, but still enjoyable.
