Since the movie is taking off in a new direction from the one the other three did, curiosity levels may be higher than ever regarding what new sort of threat the characters will face in a world where dinosaurs are not extinct. This expedition was in fulfilment of a design which he had formed, when, during his former travels in the East, his curiosity had been greatly excited by the ruins of Nimrud on the Tigris, and by the great mound of Kuyunjik, near Mosul, already partly excavated by Botta. Elmo's innocent curiosity and childlike speech earned him hordes of young fans, and he was eventually given his own segment, Elmo's World. Curiosity is key at Keys AM. Most importantly, we invest in the intellectually curious. Her brow furrowed in guarded curiosity as he stared at her.
About Me Krystal Larson Chicago, Illinois, United States I'm a young college student who has probably read over books over the course of my short life; some of the books were classics, some of the books were terrific, and some of the books were Long Live Books! I would love to read and review books from just about any genre.
At this time, I can only accept paperback or hardcover. The finished review copies I receive are either kept in my personal collection or donated to several libaries, schools, or charities-I have no control over the finished review copies after donation. The copyrights belong to the owners.

Curiosity, with a Capital S [Tonya Trimble] on ndicsiteta.tk *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. Ten-year-old Tracy worships her big brother, Stan, even. Curiosity with a Capital S by Tonya Trimble. My Thoughts: I found this story about ten year old, Tracy and her older brother, Stan's, relocation to.
Even though I am an adult reader, I still found this book very enjoyable. The story itself is laid out in chapters of journal entries that span seventeen months between March and August They are accounts written by an ten year old girl, Tracy Newton and are mostly tales about adventures that include her twelve year old brother, Stan.
The summary of the book leads you to believe that this story represents a snapshot of life during wartimes.
To me however it did not. There was not much information, short of living near a base, about the actual war or the emotional climate around it. The author did talk briefly about the ration coupons that were used but little else to tie the story to the time period. I had a grandfather who served in WWII and hearing the stories from my grandmother, who raised the family while he was gone, this book lacks the realism of the era and typical "way of life" as I have been taught from The story really did not seem to work in the setting.
While I tried to remember that the events described in the journal were suppose to be from a ten year old perspective, I couldn't help but roll my eyes at the unrealistic nature of the stories and the passiveness of the parents. Because of his curiousity and also due to an extreme lack of adult supervision, Stan gets into all kinds of trouble yet more than once in the story he is 'awarded' for his terrible behavior.
I questioned if this was the message we want to send to the readers of this book. Stan and Tracy are put in situations that are either unlikely Stan out-swims a shark?
True to journal entry form writing, there was little that tied any of the stories together nor showed the reader of any consequences given for the troublesome behavior. For that reason, I do not recommend this book. The "S" stands for Tracy's older brother Stanley. The title reminds me of a song from the musical Music Man where the lyrics speak of trouble with a capitol "T" because Stanley was frequently in trouble for his adventuresome and inquisitive antics.
These children experienced real-life adventures as they explored Lady's Island. They interacted with adults who not only shared their love for their professions but a selfless concern for the welfare of others.
