The Dorling Kindersley History Of The World by Peter Somerset FryDorling Kindersley, aka DK, puts out excellent introductory nonfiction. This one is no exception. Id love to have my own copy. Its a great introduction or filler-in for students of world history, or history in general, of whatever age level. Even though its aimed at young adults (Amazon says age range is 9-17, and grade level is 4-12), Id say its great for adults too. Instead of just following one country or continent from beginning to the present, they cover all the major inhabited areas: Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas, Oceania in parallel so you know whats going on in other areas at the same time, at least approximately. Its not deep in any area, but its so broad it makes up for that. Also the illustrations give a fuller picture than traditional history books do. Highly recommended to any student of history. As a minor comment: I love the authors name. Hed almost have to go into history. NOTE: Aha. He created the name himself, except for the Fry. He was born Peter George Robin Fry. He adopted the nickname Plantagenet in university because he favored Richard III. And he added Somerset by deed pole. Still, a great name for a historian.

Mother's Day is coming on Sunday, May And while it's a time to celebrate your mother, that very fact can be painful when your own mother is no longer here. After facing the loss of your mother, it can be incredibly difficult to watch your friends, family members and even strangers with their mothers, knowing that your mom has passed away and you can't do the same. This day of celebration may turn into a day of mourning and nostalgia, but although your mom is no longer with you in a physical sense, her love will forever live within you. So on a day like Mother's Day, it's understandable that you might cry and grieve the fact that she isn't here with you, but try to also remind yourself that her greatest gift remains — and that gift is you.
Mother, you left us beautiful memories, your love is still our guide, although we cannot see you, you're always at our side. A mother's love is always with her children.
