I am growing out my hair and looking for some quick but stylish hairstyles to wear at work. The directions were easy to follow and there is a big variety of different types of braids to choose from. So helpful! Braiding is a social art. In other words, because of the time they spend braiding, people begin to have some form of bond and start talking about their lives — sometimes, they even end up talking about whatever is going on in the world.

Emphasis is given to changes in worship practices from the Early Church, Reformation, the Great Awakenings, revival movements, large evangelistic crusades of the s and s, Jesus Movement, and the Praise and Worship movement. A chart tracing the development of worship from Genesis 4 to the twenty-first century is included.

I have since become a great fan of Wurmbrand, his books never fail to stun one into a deep, reverential silence. Imprisoned by the Romanian Communists for his work in the Christian Underground, and subjected to medieval torture, Wurmbrand kept his faith—and strengthened it. For fourteen years, he shared that faith with suffering cellmates and gave them solace. In solitary confinement, he tapped out his message of hope and Christian love.

Anguished over the fate of his wife and son, he could still tell jokes and stories to make despairing prisoners laugh. Sorely tempted by the promise of release and reprieve, he refused to become a Communist collaborator. With humble gratitude to God and Christ, he tells his personal story.

His famous book, The Travels of Marco Polo, indicates that he was a man of extraordinary bravery, brilliance, and strength. With his uncle and father, he traveled across Turkey, Armenia, the Middle East, the rugged mountains of Afghanistan, and the hot Taklimakan Desert before finally reaching China in This was a favorite as a child and it does not disappoint now.

Great value and formatting was good for Kindle. Like Anne, Emily is a strong-minded, gifted, imaginative child, left alone and unprotected in a harsh world, who is taken in by adults who are at least initially cold and unloving. Both girls grow up amid the beauties of Prince Edward Island, both keenly sensitive to natural splendors and highly fanciful, not to say occasionally precious, about assigning names to lakes and trees and identifying spirits and fairies in their surroundings. Anne is an original and spunky girl, with a certain amount of talent for writing verses and romantic tales, but Emily is a writer.

The twin threads of bright and dark, love and cruelty, hope and despair intertwine in a pattern as significant as it is enduring.

She also agrees to go out with Brad, another bold step outside her comfort zone. Letting go of the past is about as simple as an elephant picking up a pea, but for the first time in her life Sherry will leap into the exhilarating world of the great unknown, a place where faith is crucial and true love is waiting.

That immediately grabbed my interest, as this is not the norm for the Amish genre. But it is truly a book that involves the Amish and their lifestyle in a very imaginative way. Julie Charlton is at the breaking point. When her sister-in-law Susan, a Martha Stewart-in-training, lands the chance to participate in a reality TV series promoting simple living, and needs another family to join her, it seems like the perfect opportunity.

The location is an idyllic farm outside an Amish community in Tennessee. Julie, with her two children, joins Susan and her teenage daughter for a summer adventure. Susan needs to succeed in order to become self-sufficient after an ugly divorce, Julie needs to slow down long enough to remember what her priorities are and regain a sense of purpose and meaning. It was a good story. Hard to put it down.

I would recommend this book. Would like to read more from Cathy Marie Hake. Together Sydney and Tim will discover the importance of family and what it means to be a man—and a woman—of God.

Yet lurking in the political shadows is a fierce opponent with sinister plans to abolish the throne forever.

Together—with a little divine intervention—Regina and Tanner discover the truth of her heritage and the healing power of true love. This second book in the story of Joci Brooke is just as good as the first one. I hope we see a lot more from this author in the Christian Fiction aisles of bookstores.

They then fell asleep and had dreams about some other colors before waking up, getting pouncy, and spilling over all of their buckets, thus creating all the colors in the world. Myers, Dragon Takes A Wife. There was an early edition of this book that might be what you are looking for.

I totally remember that quote, also had the book in question. There was more than one in the series but the character boy dragon was called dennis the dragon and at least one of the books was named dennis the dragon. I think the first one was about him going off to school. This sounds like the story of the foolish fir tree who wished for leaves of gold, glass and lettuce. See this website. Thanks for taking the time to send in this suggestion. The gist of the tree story is the same, but the book we're trying to find was prose.

Any other thoughts would be appreciated. Bailey Carolyn , short story in collection - little fir tree? I tell my own version of this story. The tree is not a Christmas tree, however, just a fir tree in the forest. It wants to have pretty leaves instead of ugly needles. Then when given a chance to wish, it tries for something even better than the broadleaf trees. It gets crystals and the wind destroys them, gold leaves and a man picks them.

Then the tree decides to go with the original idea of green broad leaves, but a goat eats them. Finally the tree realizes that it is best to be happy with one's self. The story in the collection is entitled The Pine Tree and is the same referred to by Caroline Bailey. This version is not a Christmas tree by a pine tree in the forest that wishes for gold leaves, then glass, then green leaves and is finally happy with the original green needles.

Was your aunt from San Antonio?

Iva M. I did check with UT Austin library research. They say my aunt's poem is not listed in this book so I guess it isn't the book I'm looking for. But thank you for your trouble. I appreciate it.

If not, you can meet them now as they inhabit the magical world of this book. Nesbit's ' The Last of the Dragons and some others '. Smith, Dorothy Hall ed. It may be this one on the solved list , if the story of The First Christmas Tree is a bit garbled - in that one the woodcutter father gets lost in the snow, and is guided home by Christmas lights on trees. It has colour illos and a peach? However, it could also be The Santa Claus Book, if the recollection is of the story Susie's Christmas Star, with the little girl following her own footsteps in the snow along a street.

That one is Golden Books, , and also on the Solved list. Christmas Ideals. This book sounds very much like one of the Christmas Ideals. I was a child in the 50s, and read my grandmother's. She bought them every year. They are now softcover magazine format, but they used to be hard cover.

Some booksellers specialize in them They would have color as we well as line and monochrome illustartions, stories and poems. They repeat a lot, so the individual story could be repeated later. Pine's Mixed-Up Signs features a similar idea: Mr. Pine makes new signs for the town, but he can't find his glasses, so he puts them up randomly all over the city, to comic effect. Now back in print. See the Leonard Kessler page. You suggested that the solution to my query might be Mr. Pine's Mixed-up Signs , but Kessler's illustrations didn't look familiar at all. The book format, as I remember, was bigger than an easy reader with full-page spreads and much brighter, less sketchy illustrations than were pictured in the "Purple House" book.

So, unless the illustrations were very different in the "Signs" book, this isn't it. But, thanks anyway! Eastman, P. Philip D. I hesitate to mention this book because it is an easy reader so it isn't "bigger than an easy reader" and the illustrations are in four colors turquoise, yellow, black and white and may therefore not be "colorful" enough. The plot: Sam the owl befriends Gus the firefly, who can make shapes in the air by keeping his light on and flying about rapidly.

Sam teaches Gus to make words that look like neon signs. After a short period of innocent fun, the mischievous firefly uses his newfound talent to crash cars, confuse airplanes, and cause a stampede towards the local movie theater he writes the words "COME IN! The angry cook catches Gus in a jar and begins to drive the firefly out of town. His truck stalls on a railroad track just as a train approaches. Sam the owl smashes the jar and liberates Gus, who prevents a collision by writing "STOP" in front of the oncoming train. All is forgiven and the two friends depart.

Arnold, Tedd, The Signmaker's Assistant, If you're absolutely sure that the book is from the s, this can't be it, but it meets all the other criteria. This book is larger than an easy reader and full of big, colorful street scenes. Norman, a young boy who cleans brushes at the signmaker's shop, decides to make a few signs of his own when the signmaker isn't around to supervise.

Norman has a great deal of fun at the townspeople's expense, but realizes he has erred when they become angry and tear down every sign in the town, old as well as new. Chaos ensues and the townspeople chase the signmaker into the woods. Norman apologizes and peace and order are restored. Even if this isn't the book you're looking for, it's a worthwhile read, so check it out! Actually a particular sign I remember is more like a big billboard and something on it - a picture or phrase- is defaced in a humorous way. Possibly traffic signs are changed as well. Very colorful pics, busy and funny - sorry I can't remember more.

I remember the cover was salmon-colored, but I think that was just a library binding - now why can I remember that detail, but not more important ones? Thanks for the guess. NY Harcourt Kind of a longshot, but the date is right. It is all fantastic nonsense, carried out with perfect harmony in the good read-aloud text and the details and atmosphere of striking color illustrations. The double-spread scene showing the Dopplers enjoying their new canals will occupy a small child a long time.

In this story the whole town is turned topsy-turvy great green hooligan vine town, a really fun book. Zilpha Keatley Snyder, The Changeling. I could be wrong, but I know I read this book back in the 70's. I don't, however, remember the plot. NY Atheneum This does sound like part of the answer but only part - the main characters are two young girls, Martha Abbott and Ivy Carson, but Ivy's young sister does play a part, and there is a memorable picture of a dark-haired girl crouched under a bush.

The Carson home is large and dilapidated - the girls also explore the ruins of a burnt-out house. However I don't recall anyone called Luci or fleeing from a danger. In that one a very ordinary English family has one different daughter, called Melusine, who seems to have witchy powers and can ill-wish people. At one point the children hide behind a hedge while a girl who let Melusine's guinea pig die is bucked off her horse.

The house they live in in the country is rather old and dilapidated. At the end of the book they seek the vicar's help in driving the evil spirit from Melusine through a night of prayer, and after that she is called by her middle name, which is Joy. Boston last name , The Children of Green Knowe , s. I think this may be the book you are looking for. The first in the series of the Green Knowe books. I wonder if this could be The Dagger and the Bird? Two children, Luke and Bridget shortened to Biddie search for their younger brother who's been stolen by fairies.

If the poster has reversed the names in memory, but remembered that one name was shortened, it could fit. If it's a Christmas story, it's one that has been told in many versions. The Lutheran church put out a book and video called Red Boots for Christmas. It's also been called The Cobbler's Gift. The cobbler in these stories doesn't always show kindness, though, until the end in Red Boots for Christmas, he is a bitter, selfish man. He is visited by an angel who says that God will be visiting him he goes around cleaning up, making a special meal and trying to find a gift for God in the meantime, assorted poor people come to his door and are either helped or not helped, depending on the version.

In the end, he is upset because God didn't come then God or the angel speaks to him and says that the needy people coming to the door represented God, and that was the point. He then offers the "child" a place to sleep a straw mat and then a breakfast. The "child" thanks him for his kindness and tells the cobbler that whatever he does that day he will be successful at and do all day long. When the cobbler arrives at his shop he begins to repair the shoes and proceeds to do so all day long, making a lot of money. The greedy shopkeepers see this and ask him how this has come to be, so the cobbler tells them of the "childs" "wish".

The wife tells the husband to find the "child" so that they can benefit the same way. The husband finds the "child" and takes him in for the evening providing him with a wonderful dinner, a feather bed to sleep in and a wonderful breakfast. As the "child" leaves he tells them the same as the cobbler. So the shopkeepers rush to their store and clean out cabinets and drawers to hold all the money tey're going to make.

Instead, all they do is empty boxes all day and they make no money. I saw this story in a small book, like a Golden Book in the early seventies, but I don't know who the author was or the name of the story. I have looked for it for quite some time. I actually have three suggestions for this one. The first is the book Candy Land , which was a part of the Little Color Classics series and had a number of color plates of illustrations. No author was listed for it, but the illustrator was Hildegard. It was about a little girl named Betty and her friend Brunny who was a bear, not a boy and how they visited a land made of candy.

It was published in and has a similar story a girl named Lily visits a fantasy land of candy , but I do not know if it was ever published with color illustrations. Finally, there is In Wink-a-Way Land by Eugene Field , published in - it definitely had color illustrations and a picture of children picking candy from a field on the cover, but I do not really know the story. Hope one of these is what you are looking for. Baum, Frank, Magical Monarch of Mo.

Sounds like it could be a chapter out of the Magical Monarch of Mo , written before s. In one chapter one of the princes is banished to an island made entirely of candy. I have a few suggestions for you since they were offered to me as solutions to my stumper. I think President Smith turns out to be a good president the book is sometimes cited in bibliographies of utopian fiction , though. I don't know anything about the Goldsmith book beyond the title and fact that it's set some twenty years in what in was the future.

Have you looked through the Anthology Finder to see if anything looks familiar? Check out the Big Golden Book of Poetry I remember the dog and cat got in a fight and there were bits of fabric all around when they finished fighting. This might be it.. If the collection included The Owl and the Pussycat , it would not have been a book of poems by Field , since that one is by Edward Lear. The Gingham Dog and the Calico Cat is properly called The Duel, and it has been included in many collections of childrens' poetry.

Here are some possibilities - who knew there were so many Christmas horror books out there?? And I'm thinking the first books may all be the same book with different titles. I don't have it in front of me, but here is what I remember. Ozzie is a fun-loving boy who irritates the adults around him with his incessant jokes, riddles and pranks, and his obsession with board games. When he gets into serious trouble at school, his parents think about sending him to a military academy, and Ozzie decides to run away.

While climbing down the trellis outside his window, he falls into The Big Joke Game, a life-size board game that he must win in order to return to earth. With his "guardian devil" Bub at his side, Ozzie has many strange experiences and gains a degree of maturity before the book concludes. Fun and interesting without being preachy or heavy-handed. See the Solved Mysteries "B" page for more information.

Could it be any of these? Evers, Alf, The deer-jackers. Macmillan, George, Jean Craighead. On the far side of the mountain. Puffin, c Crowell c My book is not any of the Jean Craighead George books, as she is one of my favorite authors I probably should have mentioned that in the original email. Its also not The Deer-jackers.

I also remember that the money that could be earned from the Ginsing somehow solved a problem-maybe in keeping the land that the cabin was on. I remember it well. I don't own a copy at this moment, so I can't give copyright date. The story of two boys who seek a the lost cabin of a "Sang Hunter" wild Ginseng hunter and the treasure of fine roots he left behind.

The book features the lyrics of a mountain ballas about the Sang Hunter's ghost " I don't know if these will be right, but two books came to mind, although both seem a little advanced for fourth grade. No Promises in the Wind Irene Hunt is about 2 brothers from Chicago during the depression, who run away and survive on thier own. Where the Lilies Bloom has several brothers and sisters living and surving on thier own by gathering herbs to sell, particularly Ginseng, they however live in the Appalachians not the Catskills.

Don't know if these will help, Good Luck. Just a guess. Sorry, no ideas about the specific craft book, but I might point out that Canadians where I live anyway usually spell Mommy with an o, not a u. So maybe your book was a British import? I think you may be right, this book must have been a British import. Eva Knox Evans, Araminta. This sounds like a story I read in grade school, that was in one of our readers.

I remember the little girl walking through the city. I don''t remember the author or title, but I'll keep looking! Cars and Trucks ,c, no author, Illus. Richard Scarry. It shows the front cover of all their books. I hope this helps. From what I have learned about the book I seek, at least I was able to input that info on another stumper that describes the exact plot of the book I am searching.

Unfortunately, the book I found was British, with fussy illustrations and too recently published. The book I need about an undersea tour was likely American, published in or , with illustrations that were more heavy black outlines and bold colors within. I was able to find Priscilla and the Prawn on the Internet, look at its illustrations, and was able to determine it was not the book, but I did relate that book info to stumper L , a quest for something that sounded identical.

Won't give up on my book, and am desperate! Thanks for your site! Hewson, Isabel Manning, Land of the Lost, Could it be this one, from the Solved list? The time is right, and there is an undersea kingdom, though I don't know whether it is only for crustaceans. Re stumper C, someone has posted a response, but the suggested book, "The Land of the Lost" by Hewson is not the book, as that book deals with fresh water, originates above ground, and the book I am seeking takes place completely in the ocean, with marine animals shrimp families, crab families, etc.

I remember that each marine animal family had its special color silk pillow on which to sit. Lewis, The Silver Chair. Eustace Scrubb and Jill Pole are transported to Narnia where they must rescue Prince Caspian, who is under a spell and being held prisoner in a land deep underground. Not sure if this is the one -- they don't "swim through the earth" per se, but that phrase reminded me of the mayhemic scene in which they are trying to race to the surface. It's possible the scene described is when the kids go to the 2-dimensional world?

Lewis, The Chronicles of Narnia. Digory and Polly become friends when he moves in with his uncle a maigcian who has magical rings that transport the children into and enchanted world. They enter this world through a pool in the woods and encounter a land of eternal winter. This is the first book of seven entitled The Magician's Nephew. The more popular second book is The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe which has four children who live in Digory's home many years later. Their adventures start by entering the land of Narnia by stepping through the back of the wardrobe.

This sounds like A Wrinkle in Time , although others will know better. Two siblings -- Meg and her brother Charles Wallace -- and a boy from Meg's school travel through a wrinkle in time to try to rescue Meg's father. No tower in the title, but there's a lot of talk in the book of "tesseracts. It's unclear why the title of this stumper is "ck wallace", but if the stumper requester thinks this could be the name of a character, the book sought could be A Wrinkle in Time.

Charles Wallace Murry, his sister Meg, and her schoolmate Calvin O'Keefe are transported through a tesseract to the planet Camazotz, where they hope to rescue Meg's father. As for the "swimming through the earth" passage the stumper requester remembersthis description of the end of Meg's first tesseract trip is from page "And this feeling of moving with the eath was somewhat like the feeling of being in the ocean, out in the ocean beyond this rising and falling of the breakers, lying on the moving water, pulsing gently with the swells, and feeling the gentle, inexorable tug of the moon.

Alan Garner, Elidor , '60s?? This description reminds me of elements of Garner's Elidor , and of another of his books where there's a substantial underground section, although I don't recall any "swimming" called The Weirdstone of Brisingamen. I don't specifically remember the 'swimming through earth' but that sounds very familiar. John White, The Tower of Geburah, I'm not sure about the swimming through the earth part, because it's been many years since I've read it and I don't own a copy to check, but I think the rest of the description fits. Marjorie Vetter, Journey for Jennifer, This is a guess - here's the only description I could find: Jennifer could feel her face stiffen as she watched Steve say good-by to the others.

Wasn"t he going to miss her at all when she was in the hill country? C You can't believe how many Google entries have concertina and toothache in them I gave up halfway thru. Have you tried any of Eleanor Frances Lattimore's books? She was born in China, spent her early years there, and that's reflected in a number of her children's books, which she also illustrated. Lattimore, Eleanor F.

A possibility--Little Pear has two sisters. Not sure, but it sounds similar. Thomas Handforth, Mei Li , This reminded me of a story in one of the Through Golden Windows books. A little Chinese girl has adventures at a New Year's fair. I didn't see a reference to watermelon seeds, but they could have been in the original book. Kahn, James, The Goonies , There was a novelization published of The Goonies , based upon the Steven Spielberg film.

Is that what you're thinking of? Hello again. I actually bought Black Rock Cave a couple of years ago, but it was a cave that was entered from above and not under the water. My sister also mentioned that she thought someone in the book was perhaps from Scotland or it took place in Scotland. And she had a vague memory that it was from someone with 3 names like Robert Louis Stevenson perhaps.

Rescuing Your Wallet from Overpriced Ebooks

Elizabeth Heppner, Palace Under the Sea. Probably not it, but just in case Tracy is a diver, and does swim up into the palace. Could it be this book? Three children, Barnaby and his older sister I think her name is Jane and brother, hunt for the Grail of King Arthur in an undersea cave at the bottom of a cliff in Cornwall, in England, with the help of their Uncle Merry Merriman Lyon. Again, I'm afraid that Palace Under the Sea is not the correct book. I got some more details out of my sister and it definately took place in Scotland and there were 4 children or young adults, possibly in it at least 2 are girls.

It was in a book that had 2 stories by the same author. At least two of the children in it are actually from Scotland and it takes place in the late 's or early 's. I'll let you know if I get more information and thanks, again. No, I'm afraid this isn't the one either, although it was the closest so far. It was definately a cave that they had to swim underwater and into. Thanks again though for trying.

They find a cave with a treasure in it. Not sure about swimming underwater to it. I believe they talked about stalactites and stalagmites in the caves quite a bit too. This is now available as a reprint in paperback with an entirely new cover. The same kids travel along a river to where it narrows and becomes a fast-flowing gorge. The boat is swept by the river towards a roaring cataract — a "gigantic underground waterfall" as Jack describes it — and the children are terrified of being dashed to pieces. Luckily, they manage to swing the boat sideways into a cavern in the cliff, saving all their lives.

The children follow tunnels leading out of the cavern and stumble eventually upon the underground remains of a magnificent temple dating from about seven thousand years ago. The temple was erected in honour of a goddess, and kings and noblemen brought treasures there for generations. Many items have perished but the glorious treasures that remain include gold statues, bowls, combs, jewellery, ornaments and daggers.

Just a thought, but the description sounds like something Ruth Arthur may have written. I can't find a title that matches though Cuould this be Taming of the candy Monster? A cookbook somkewheat geared towards kids?? This might be right. I don't have a copy in front of me to check out the chicken legs or peas for sure, but the book is about the youngest son in the family a fool who sets out to bring the czar the flying ship that the czar desires and win the hand of the princess in return. This is a bit of a long shot, but all the stories the poster mentions show up in Old Peter's Russian Tales by Arthur Ransome.

It's a set of stories told by an old forester, not a single story about a prince, however. This is "The family who never had roller skates" by Hildegard Woodward, and it appeared in volume 4 of the old, pre Childcraft books the orange ones , in the volume titled Animal friends and adventures, under the section "Wheels, wings, and real things. Woodward was an author and illustrator who won a few Caldecott medals. Apparently the little Pettingills and their perplexing predicament originally appeared in a book about families who had never had Thanks, this is going to allow me to pass on a wonderfull book to my children.

Whitman Publishing, The Christmas Book , Here's a website that shows the book [broken link]. I'm sure this is right I have it at home--and so does one of my coworkers! Very happy memories of this one. The Happy Christmas Story Book , This book matches the description and was published by the Ideals Publishing Co. The Christmas Book , published by Whitman in , has the glossy Santa cover you remember, but many more than 8 or 10 stories, there are probably 40 stories and a few classic poems as well.

The version of "The Little Match Girl" in this book is quite abbreviated. Is there any chance that this is The Curious Little Kitten? The kitten is in the back yard, and first goes over the fence on one side, to find a dog, then over the other fence, to find a goldfish pond, which she falls into and then jumps over the grey stone wall to find another little kitten. Lots of repetition, bright illustrations, and my kids loved this one, so it might be it. The Curious Little Kitten. The book was definitely an adult cat, not a kitten.

Also not Jenny the Cat books by Averill. Have wondered whether it could be a Claire Turlay Newberry book, but can't find a list of the plots of those books. The gray kitty always hides by the stone wall, and the yellow one in the buttercups, and the third in the black-eyed susans. One day they mix up the hiding places and Mama cat catches them.

Does this ring any bells? I don't remember the title of the book. Jane Thayer, The Outside Cat, I know the person making the request remembered a cat on a gray wall, but could it possibly be a cat on a gray roof? Much else about this book matches. I found this book used long ago and my son made me read it to him every day. It is illustrated by Feodor Rojankovsky , and the illustrations are on of the best things about the book. The book I have contains the picture of Hansel in the cage.

It is hardback and has a green and purple cover. It is volume 4 of The Golden Treasury of Children's Literature, so perhaps you had a couple different volumes with the other stories you mentioned. Bridget Hadaway, Fairy Tales , This sounds very like this collection. You can find more about on the solved mystery pages.

The part about Hansel and the bird cage definitely fits, and it does have all the other stories mentioned. The pictures you are describing sound so familiar - but I can't remember the specific book. I'm almost certain that the picture of the man beside the tree, and the witch with the long hooked nose, is from the story Jorinda or Jorinde and Joringel, by the Bros. This story is not as common as some of the others, so might help you to narrow down your search.

  5. Hope this helps you find what you're looking for. I have looked into both suggestions and neither is the right book. Anybody else with a suggestions?? I don't know the name of this book, but I am also looking for it. It was very thick, and had so many fairy tales inside. I remember I always hated the Cinderella illustrations, but otherwise loved the book. I want very much to find this book, too. Can't understand why it's so hard to figure out! The green illustrated cover is lush and features a giant in front of a tree, vines, and fairy tales characters in the vines. The vine theme continues on the beginning title pages, and each story is illustrated by a different artist.

    The subtitle is "50 Best-loved Stories," which is the part I remembered best, and threw me off the trail for so long. Each page has a four line verse, a short summary, a few questions and a Bible verse. Children are encouraged to look for the tiny lady bugs in every picture.
