- Age: Intermediate

- About the history of how forks and chopsticks became to be. They start in the caveman time and go through the stone age all the way to modern times.

- I probably would not have this in my classroom as it is really detailed and long talking about both about utensils and the era. It might be interesting to read after learning about the different eras as it is bridges them all together.

Charming short stories really, each chapter is a new adventure that Clarence has with his young owners...all very simple and everyday sorts of fun. I love children's book from the 1950's for this very reason!

An excellent elementary level discussion of Mount St. Helens and its eruption of 1980. Contains good before and after photos and diagrams; however, this book was published in 1986, so the "healing" part of the text is missing over 35 years of data.
