Boundless Grace
Brave Irene (Sunburst Books) - William Steig

This is a really cute book that my CT has read to her class. The book takes place in a fairytale land. Where Irene's mother is a dress maker, who is to sick to get the dress for the Duchess to her during the snow storm. So Irene being the brave little girl that she is takes the dress to the duchess. It is a cute book that we used to wonder and question. This is a really good book to instill the basic thinking that a person needs to do while reading a book. We also used it to infer about certain characters.

Questioning Collapse: Human Resilience, Ecological Vulnerability, and the Aftermath of Empire - Patricia A. McAnany (Editor), Norman Yoffee (Editor) Enjoyable and very approachable. This book is a collection of essays pertaining to the particular societies that Diamond examines in his works. I think this book is a good compliment to [b:Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies|1842|Guns, Germs, and Steel The Fates of Human Societies|Jared Diamond|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1363428619s/1842.jpg|2138852] and [b:Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed|475|Collapse How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed|Jared Diamond|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1309288319s/475.jpg|1041106] because many of Diamond's arguments are in danger of being taken at face value, which is a skewed way of looking at history in any aspect. Many of the author's do not directly confront many of Diamond's claims because some of them are correct, just incomplete. I also enjoyed the layout of this book which is neatly organized by society, therefore if you were interested in the rebuttal for Diamond's discussion of Easter Island, one chapter is devoted to that, etc.
