The emperor loves new clothes. The fancier they are the more he likes them. So he hires two master weavers to create the best suit ever. But these master weavers are tricky...The Emperor's New Clothes is one of Hans Christian Andersen's funniest fairy tales. Accompanied by Carol Thompson's cheeky illustrations, this playful retelling will delight a whole new generation of readers, as well as draw chuckles from those who already know and love this tale.
The foolish emperor is tricked by two "weavers" who claim that their beautiful fabric can be seen only by the competent people in the kingdom. Ultimately, it is the honest child who outsmarts the town in this classic Hans Christian Andersen tale that encourages self-confidence.
The 1960's ushered in one of the most quickly wide-spread trends up until that time...the American cowboy. This was due in part to the acquisition of television into many of the homes of the baby boomers. All of us who were 'cowboys' during this time still feel a connection with each other. From that vantage point we moved on to the days of go-go boots and from there to being flower children and wearing peace symbols and fringed vests. Our clothing became a way of expressing who we are at an individual level, rather than just an expression of our class or socio-economic status, as had been the case in the past. We enjoyed being able to express both our collective spirit and our individual natures through our clothing choices. Perhaps we haven't always realized the extent to which clothing trends and experiences shape us into the people that we become on the inside. Is it possible that our character and integrity are affected by something as simple as our clothing? It's worth thinking about and remembering those significant clothing experiences along the way.
American education is falling behind that of other countries, and we are continuing to battle a huge dropout rate in our country. Being without a high school diploma can lead to low-paying jobs, unemployment, government assistance and even incarceration. The effects on our country's economy are devastating.

Within the pages of this book are twenty basic reminders for parents on what should be taught at home. In order to gain a good education, a child needs parents who are doing their jobs at home and teachers doing their parts in school. Students also have a responsibility for their own learning. The ideas in this guide can help your child to become an active participant in his education. While raising successfully motivated students can be challenging, the advice given in this book is -practical -uncomplicated -inexpensive -necessary.
