Cherche et trouve au zoo
"Look and find" est la version bilingue anglais/français de la série "Mini Cherche et trouve", dans un format beaucoup plus grand. Le livre-jeu où l'enfant doit retrouver dans la grande image un objet ou un personnage figurant sur les volets s’enrichit en offrant en plus une initiation à l’anglais dès la maternelle. Certains des objets représentés sur les volets ont été changés par rapport à l'édition originale pour les rendre plus pertinents dans le cadre de l'apprentissage de l'anglais. À l’heure où l’apprentissage des langues étrangères commence de plus en plus tôt, voici une façon très ludique d’apprendre un peu de vocabulaire.
The Absorbent Mind
The Absorbent Mind was Maria Montessori's most in-depth work on her educational theory, based on decades of scientific observation of children. Her view on children and their absorbent minds was a landmark departure from the educational model at the time. This book helped start a revolution in education. Since this book first appeared there have been both cognitive and neurological studies that have confirmed what Maria Montessori knew decades ago.
Devil s Workshop
For 25 years the architects who make up Jersey Devil have been constructing their own designs while living on site in tents or Airstream trailers, making adjustments to their structures in response to problems encountered during the building process. Jersey Devil is a name that has been attached to work by Steve Badanes, John Ringel, Jim Adamson, or any combination of the above, plus many other people who have participated in their diverse projects. This loose-knit group of designer-builders has created projects that critique conventional practice, both the process of making architecture and the accepted definitions of architecture itself. Jersey Devil's architecture shows a concern for craft and detail, an attention to the expressiveness of the construction materials, and a strong environmental consciousness. Devil's Workshop contains complete project descriptions, photographs, drawings, and plans on more than a dozen projects, including the Snail House, the Silo House, the Hoagie House, and the Seaside Pavillion. Essays analyze Jersey Devil's work, providing an insight into the design-build process and its historical context, and discussing the formal qualities inherent in these projects.
