Welcome to this early-winter edition of the Friday Review—it actually snowed when I came into work today. SNOWED! And that makes me think of one book, and one book only:
An all-time favorite children’s book, The Snowman is completely wordless, but captures that element of childhood wonder perfectly. Sigh.
But anyways, there are SO many new products coming out soon:
Vision Forum’s Mysterious Islands DVD is everywhere it seems—watch the trailer to catch a glimpse of what this documentary is all about.
We also have a brand-new release from Lamplighter Theatre: A Basket of Flowers. You’ll be able to listen to the first episode tomorrow or the day after.
Everyone will be having fun car-rides for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year—also coming out soon is Jonathan Park Goes to the Galapagos.
Vocabulary for Classical Roots has now come out with Book 4! On a side note, I credit this series for much of my vocabulary understanding as I progressed through school; I was one of the voracious Charles Dickens/Charlotte Bronte/Jane Austen reading students, and none of those “big” words ever really seemed imposing once I knew what the roots meant. Just a fantastic series I’d recommend to anyone.
And finally, The Fallacy Detective is now in a new edition with more cartoons, more fallacies, and new chapters on Slippery Slope and Special Pleading fallacies.
