A Book For My Husband
A Book For My Husband
by Polich
Hardcover      ISBN: 1883211778
Pamela Winterbourne shows again (as she did in "A Book for My Sister, A Book for my Daughter, and "A Book for My Mother) that she has a gift for expressing the unsaid thoughts of everywoman. Here she looks back on a marriage (which could be of any duration) and thanks her husband for his admiration, trust, generosity, laughter, companionship and love. Welleran Poltarnees, as is his wont, has discovered lovely images to accompany each thought.

Song of Creation
Song of Creation
Hardcover      ISBN: 1883211344
In 1225 the infirm St. Francis, living in a hut in a church garden, wrote this poem in which he looks on the face of creation and blesses it in its totality. Our text is a translation of the poem by Matthew Arnold. We have illuminated each line with paintings -- "Praised be my Lord for our brother the Wind" is accompanied by a Corot painting of trees bent before a gale, and also an illustration by Frank Pape in which a dove is borne joyously upward. In this manner two faces of wind are shown, and the words made more vividly manifest.

50 Perfect Wines to Pair With Your Child's Rotten Behavior
Hardcover      ISBN: 1631063359
This isn't your ordinary wine pairing book--this is wine pairing for the weary parent! Did your daughter just get out of bed for the twelfth time to ask for a glass of water? We've got the perfect rosé for your sanity. Did your son just have a meltdown in the middle of the grocery store? We've got a Pinot for your pain. Has your child's math homework left you in a state of total depression? Try a Syrah to get you out of that funk. W(h)ine includes fifty perfect pairings to match your child's perfectly rotten behavior! You'll also discover the best ways to open a wine bottle without a corkscrew (hint: use a shoe). As a bonus, each wine featured in the book comes with a sticker, so every time you sample a wine to match a rotten behavior, go ahead and add it to the Periodic Table of W(h)ine that folds out of the book. The sticker groupings will help you determine if your child has behavior problems, attitude problems, or just plain bad DNA! So whether you like your "juice" from the glass, the bottle, or the box, this is the perfect book to wine your way through the joys of day-to-day parenting.
