The best book I ever read is "Corduroy" by Don Freeman. Corduroy is a teddy bear with a button missing on his overalls. Lisa is the little girl who buys Corduroy. She takes him home to her apartment. Lisa loves Corduroy and that is why this is my favorite story.- Angel Lyn Cegelski, Grade 2,Lansdowne Elementary"The Five Chinese Brothers" by Claire Huchet Bishop and Kurt Wiese is an extraordinary book. I recommend this book to children who pretend they have special abilities. This book is probably for kids who are 7 or 8 years old. A humorous part about this book is when the first Chinese brother swallowed the sea and then his head got bigger.

Standing over one of the Colonial, brick sidewalks that help define Annapolis, the archaeologists began digging with trowels and shovels. The team from the University of Maryland carved a 4-foot-long trench along a sidewalk at Fleet and Cornhill streets - two of the oldest in the historic district. Bagging and tagging artifacts along the way, they scraped through the powdered remains of a red brick sidewalk from 1820 and a black layer of wood chips from 1740. Then they found something far more significant than the shards of pearlware, animal bones and the King George III penny that they uncovered in the layers above: a log street that archaeologists called the oldest remnant yet discovered of the Annapolis settlement.

Since 1996, Natalie Graham had a vision that one day she would make ladies feel like pretty little dolls. When she opened her chic and eclectic boutique, The Doll House, 525 N. Charles St., in September 2004 her vision came to life. Once inside this Mount Royal area storefront, the dollhouse theme is apparent. "Do you want to play dress up?" asks a saleswoman to a patron who just stepped inside the store. This place has an exciting and funky vibe, with creative collages of celebrities and fashion, a collaboration of small unique art, and small contemporary furniture that brings the "dollhouse" theme alive.

"I like the book 'A Mouse Called Wolf' by Dick King-Smith because a little woman named Mrs. Honeybee fed a mouse if he would sing. It was hilarious when a cat chased the mouse around the house. Mrs. Honeybee hurt her leg on her bed. The mouse rescued her by calling 911 and sang."- Ron Rider,Jacksonville Elementary"My favorite book is 'Corduroy' by Don Freeman. I like this book because it has kindness, and Corduroy is cute and Lisa was kind too because she sewed him a new button. And when Corduroy got in Lisa's house he had a bed and a friend."

OF ALL of the purchases a man might make for fall, a coat is the one most likely to halt him in his tracks. The coat-buying experience makes a man stop, ponder, check his wallet, shake his head in disbelief and hope this winter will be the mildest one yet.So, in the great quest for a new winter coat, there is no room for mistakes. Bad overcoats don't go away quickly. It takes weeks before the checkbook recovers, months before the new trench gets comfortable with the old wardrobe and years before outerwear mistakes land on the clothing give-away pile.

Foundation is a wonderful thing. Unless it's too heavy. And streaky. And makes you look like a cut-rate mime. Bloom's refillable compact foundation won't let you down. It's a water-resistant foundation that provides a smooth veil of oil-diffusing powder and imparts a luminous finish. Use it wet for an even, translucent look or use it dry on oily areas for fuller coverage. Here's the best part: When you run out, simply pop a refill into your sleek, mirrored compact. What could be easier?

MILAN, Italy - On Saturdays, there are more paninari than pigeons in the Piazza del Duomo and there always are thousands of pigeons hanging out in this sprawling plaza in the center of the city.Some of the paninari come to shop, most come to cruise.Arm in arm, long hair freshly washed, jeans neatly pressed and sweaters casually flung around necks or knotted at their waists, young girls stroll up and down the piazza on search-and-attract missions. Their targets: battalions of boys who mass on the steps of the cathedral in uniforms of jeans and denim jackets, smoking and surveying the passing parade.

With the premise that the early years are the epicenter of a child's social development, a new Saturday morning television block emerges to guide nervous youngsters through pre-school jitters that are every bit as daunting as the three Rs. In PBS Kids "Bookworm Bunch," which airs from 7:30 to 10:30, six prominent children's book authors entrust their characters and stories to television adaptation....

Hey, make sure you wear something you can work in, something that can take the wear and tear. Think heavy, think industrial strength. And make sure you can get dirty in it. You've got to come adequately prepared if you're going to make it.Prepared for what? Drywalling? Welding?Nope. For barreling into homeroom just as the bell rings. For lounging at your locker. For work -- classwork and homework.Work clothes, especially painter's pants, are back from the '80s. Not boring white or dark blue broadcloth, but in an explosion of colors and fabrics, from stretch denim to corduroy.
