In one gripping profile after another, these extraordinary historical accounts offer stories of steadfast believers who together helped thousands of Jewish individuals and families to safety. Many of these everyday heroes perished alongside the very people they were trying to protect. There is no doubt that all of their stories showcase the best of humanity--even in the face of unthinkable evil,"--Amazon.com.

Title Talking baby :
Author Maclagen, Margaret, author.
Publication Date(s) 2016
Format: Books
Summary This book takes a child-led approach to encouraging language development. We hope you enjoy discovering more about how language grows and ways you can choose to nourish its development in your child. The main focus in this book is on babies and young children. As it's useful to see the progression of language development throughout all the preschool years, we've included milestones up to age five. But do remember that individual children will progress through these stages at different rates. By school age your child will: speak your language and have a working vocabulary of up to 5,000 words; complete complex sentences, describing their world and instructing those in it!; produce almost every sound in their language reasonably correctly; be ready to learn new and abstract ideas through their own and others' use of language; be ready to learn to represent language through written words (reading and writing); and be ready to learn maths. The development of language through the preschool years is a remarkable journey. But it is not one that your child will make alone. Children make this journey because people around them talked to them while they were a baby and then kept right on talking. In the first third of the book, we describe your baby's language development alongside their physical development in the first 18 months. Then we talk about play, because play is the way young children learn. In the middle section, we explore your child's very early acquisition of words, how they use them and the sorts of things they talk about. We also cover the exciting development that happens when your child can put two words together and then talk about more complicated things. We look at the variety in children's progress with language which can involve particular stages - saying 'no' and asking lots of questions are two of these. At the end of every chapter we include a summary of tips for parents.

Summary "Luke McCallin, author of The Pale House and The Man from Berlin, delivers a dark, compelling thriller set in post-World War II Germany featuring ex-intelligence officer Captain Gregor Reinhardt. A year after Germany's defeat, Reinhardt has been hired back onto Berlin's civilian police force. The city is divided among the victorious allied powers, but tensions are growing, and the police are riven by internal rivalries as factions within it jockey for power and influence with Berlin's new masters. Whena man is found slain in a broken-down tenement, Reinhardt embarks on a gruesome investigation. It seems a serial killer is on the loose, and matters only escalate when it's discovered that one of the victims was the brother of a Nazi scientist. Reinhardt's search for the truth takes him across the divided city and soon embroils him in a plot involving the Western Allies and the Soviets. And as he comes under the scrutiny of a group of Germans who want to continue the war--and faces an unwanted reminder from his own past--Reinhardt realizes that this investigation could cost him everything as he pursues a killer who believes that all wrongs must be avenged"-- Provided by publisher.

Title Bitten by witch fever. Wallpaper & arsenic in the Victorian home.
Author Hawksley, Lucinda, author.
Publication Date(s) 2016
Format: Books
Summary Beautiful to look at and compelling to read, this book is a highly original and captivating volume that interleaves facsimile sections of alluring, arsenic-laden wallpapers with thought-provoking narrative. It is tracing the arresting story of the use and effects of the toxic pigments ingrained in popular wallpapers of the nineteenth century. Hawksley presents the history of Scheele's green and schweinfurt green, pigments created using arsenic, which produced the vibrant shades whose brilliance made them instant favourites with wallpaper designers and householders alike. With the aid of contemporary case studies and reports in the press, she reveals how, by the middle of the century, manufacturers were producing millions of rolls of arsenical wallpaper, with devastating consequences for those working in their factories and for those living in rooms decorated with the deadly designs. The wallpaper sections display dazzling long- lost work from the great designers and printers of the age, including Christopher Dresser, Corbiere, Son & Brindle, Charles Knowles & Co. and Morris & Co.- whose owner was famously dismissive of the fatal effects of living with arsenic-filled wallpapers.
