Susannah turns to look where the finger is pointing, and is filled with horror at what she sees: The blood! . Susannah opened her eyes and looked around wildly, gasping for breath.

Susannah turns to look where the finger is pointing, and is filled with horror at what she sees: The blood! Dear God, theblood! There is a bowl filled with blood, and in it some monstrous dead thing, a dead baby that's not human, and has she killed it herself? . She almost fell out of the chair in which she was sitting. Overhead were the black-and-white TV screens.

Picture Book" is the third track from The Kinks' album The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society. Written by Ray Davies, the song looks back at pictures in a picture book. Picture Book" is a song about looking through a photo album, where pictures of "you in your birthday suit" and of "your mama and your papa, and fat old Uncle Charlie out boozing with their friends" are found

Great pictures and good text. Another book I bought was Journey to Ellis Island:How my Father Came to America by Carol Bierman. Vivid illustrations by Susannah Ryan bring the immigration experience to life and will appeal to primary grade students.

Great pictures and good text. I enthusiastically recommend it over Coming to America. The chronology of immigration, notes on immigration today, and other interesting facts included in the back of the book will enhance a young child's understanding of the subject. 7 people found this helpful.

Gregor received critical success and become a New York Times bestseller. For Collins, The Hunger Games and her other books touch on the very subjects-necessary and unnecessary wars-that her own father often discussed with her. "If we introduce kids to these ideas earlier, we could get a dialogue about war going earlier and possibly it would lead to more solutions," she says.

These non fiction picture books cover biography, science, math, social studies . Discovering the World’s Scariest Creatures by Jess Keating

These non fiction picture books cover biography, science, math, social studies, animals, and behavior. This one-of-a-kind book explores the life and art of Keith Haring from his childhood through his meteoric rise to fame. It sheds light on this important artist’s great humanity, his concern for children, and his disregard for the establishment art world. 10. What’s the Big Deal About First Ladies by Ruby Shamir. Discovering the World’s Scariest Creatures by Jess Keating. Some people think monsters are the stuff of nightmares-the stuff of scary movies and Halloween. But monsters can also be found right in your backyard.

The Picture Book is a gracefully written story of a daughter's search for love and identity, and the stubborn nature of forgiveness. In this poignant debut novel, Susannah Keating uncovers a complex web of family secrets to reach the comforting conclusion that mothers, fathers, and daughters are profoundly and permanently connected no matter what befalls them.

Fresh from school, Patrizia Orman, twenty-two, works as a gallery assistant in SoHo and is dreaming of success in the art world, when her mother, Lizzie, is killed in an automobile accident. Patrizia returns home for the funeral and her emotional shock is compounded when her godmother, Sarah, presents her with a cache of letters from her father -- a man she has never known, and of whom her mother has rarely spoken. Her godmother reveals that Masimilliano Caracci had been her mother's great love, a charismatic art dealer she met when she studied in Rome. Sadly, their passionate love affair had disintegrated when Lizzie discovered she was with child, and Masi demanded that she choose between their relationship or the unborn child, whom he vowed to neither acknowledge nor support.

Hurt and confused by the revelations but longing to know the truth, Patrizia travels to Rome to find her father and weaves her way into his life while pretending she is merely Anna, another American art student. In Italy, Patrizia feels revitalized and indulges her artistic passion as well as her deepening interest in a young Italian named Andrea. As she experiences the treasures, tastes, and sounds of the ancient city, she dreams of living there indefinitely -- much like her mother did at the same age. But her unresolved relationship with her father threatens her happiness when Patrizia begins to fear that like her father before him, Andrea might also abandon her.

Tender and heartfelt, Susannah Keating's vivid sensory descriptions and psychological honesty mark her as a touching storyteller and an astute observer of human nature. The Picture Book will have readers carefully examining their own lives and the choices they have made.

The call from her godmother came to her place of work, the Holly Ardath Art Gallery in Manhattan's SoHo section. The message simply stated that Patrizia Orman needed to return home because her beloved mother was injured in a car accident. She immediately flies home to Argyle, Wisconsin to be with her mother, but arrives too late.

Her godmother presents Patrizia with letters written by her father, a person she never met or knew. Seeking a sense of belonging after her loss, Patrizia flies to Rome to meet the individual who sired her, Masimilliano Caracci, an Italian art dealer. She hides her identity, but manages to work her way into his art world. As Patrizia gets to know and care for her father, she falls in love with Andrea Pisanelli. However, as with her parents, it seems as if history will repeat itself with Andrea forsaking her love.

THE PICTURE BOOK is a fascinating relationship drama that centers on the impact choices have on future generations. The story line is romantic, melancholy, and uplifting. Readers will root for the lead couple to make it even as they hold out little hope for it to occur. Susannah Keating shows a veteran's ability to make her audience care for her entire cast of characters and if this tale is any indication she has a long storytelling career ahead of her.

This book had a wonderful storyline which leads a young woman on a journey to find the father that abandoned her before she was born. Patrizia is a young girl in her 20's whose mother has just died, and who has never known her father. After her mother's death, Patrizia's godmother tells her the truth -- that her father abandoned her mother when she refused to get an abortion, thus sending Patrizia on a mission to Italy to track down her real father. Patrizia manages to track down her father, but doesn't tell him right away who she is. The storyline opens up and allows Patrizia to do what she really loves to do -- paint. Coming to terms with her father also allows Patrizia to get on with her life, including a man she met and fell in love with while in Italy.
