Harley Quinn Vol. 3: Kiss Kiss Bang Stab (New 52) - Chad Hardin,Amanda Conner,Jimmy Palmiotti

This is my favorite one in this series. I'm glad I didn't give up. The silliness is tempered out a bit with good storytelling. Harley is much more of a heroic antiheroine instead of a neutral character who has no concept of right and wrong. Also, we get to see her psychiatrist roots in this book. There is still some gross humor, but not as over the top. Loved the Batman/Bruce Wayne storyline and the lesson about you might not want what you thought you did when you actually get it. A lot of good moments and this one actually had a feel good vibe to it. Not helping my Harley Quinn obsession here, folks.

Bathroom Science
Bathroom Science: 70 Fun and Wacky Science Experiments - Christine Taylor-Butler

70 Fun and Wacky Science Experiments

by Christine Taylor-Butler

age range: 8 years old and up

Portable Press

 

From the blurb: "Create exploding toilet volcanoes, oozing sink slime, and bubbling bathtub cauldrons…all in the name of science! Each step-by-step experiment uses household and other easy-to-find materials so the young scientist’s lab can be equipped quickly, inexpensively, and—for those who might worry—safely. Bathroom Science highlights the materials, the method, and the scientific “why” behind every experiment. It's spiral bound to stay open while young scientists-in-training measure and mix. And, best of all, Bathroom Science makes science as simple (and occasionally explosive) as going to the bathroom".

 

This book is amazing. What could be better than have a lab in the bathroom? The experiments are easy to follow, and the "why it happens" is explained in an uncomplicated manner. Many Physics and Chemistry concepts are covered in the activities, but always in an easy and entertaining way. The book is actually very funny and includes puns like "It's snot much trouble. Why would you want to make artificial snots? Who nose why?". The experiment have different level of difficulty, but you can easily see which ones need adult supervision, since those are in red in the table of contents. I guess that now all I have to do is take the plunge and try some experiments with my kids. 

 

I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

2016 Weird & Wacky Holiday Marketing Guide: Your business calendar of marketing ideas
2016 Weird & Wacky Holiday Marketing Gui... 2016 Weird & Wacky Holiday Marketing Guide: Your business calendar of marketing ideas - Ginger Marks This book is so in-depth, I couldn't begin to imagine just how long it took Ginger Marks to research and write. In marketing, you may have come across advice to use holidays such as these to market your product. It is no different in book marketing.

It is a very useful reference to own if your book's theme can fit into a given public holiday. I wish I could make use of it! My books never seem to fit in with anything. The holidays are listed by month and day, which can make searching through it a bit laborious and time-consuming. I'm wondering if it would make things easier if the holidays could have been listed by genre. Would that have made it easier to look for a reference to your book's theme? I suppose you could look each month up as they come to see if it's relevant to you. Most of the holidays and dates are so obscure that, I expect, many people wouldn't be aware that they even exist.

Examples of non-traditional holidays you can find in this guide are Cuckoo Dancing Week in January, For Pete's Sake Day in February and Electric Razor Day in March. I'd be curious to know if anyone has written books that fitted into these! Maybe there is a different meaning to them and they are not all literal. The book also lists the usual, well-known holidays such as Christmas and Easter.

Overall, I think it's a book that could prove handy if you have some spare time or you want to write something incorporating a holiday listed. Then, there is no excuse for not finding at least some inspiration!

Dr Suess
[ { WACKY WEDNESDAY (I CAN READ IT ALL BY MYSELF BEGINNER BOOKS (LIBRARY)) } ] by Dr Seuss (AUTHOR) Sep-12-1974 [ Library Binding ] - Dr Seuss

When I was doing some observations my teacher had her door decorated like this book. I think that you could read this book from k-2 and have a "wacky Wednesday" dress up day or get the students to draw what they would wear or do if they had a "wacky Wednesday"!
