Using one of the most famous works in classical music—Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony—here is the perfect way to introduce a young child to the world of classical music. This charming and interactive picture book with its panel of 19 sound buttons is like a ticket to a concert hall, taking readers on a journey from the exciting first moment when the musicians begin tuning up to the end of the first movement (attention newcomers: don’t clap yet!). At each step of the way, readers learn the basics of classical music and the orchestra: What is a conductor? What is a symphony? Who was Beethoven? The different aspects of music: melody, harmony, tempo, theme. And the families of instruments—strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion. But the best part is that every critical idea is illustrated in gorgeous sound. The sound panel allows readers to hear the different parts of the symphony and voices of the music—the famous beginning of the Fifth, what a clarinet sounds like, the difference between a violin and a viola, what a melody is, and what harmony is. Kids will want to match their voices to the A note that tunes the orchestra, dance to the rhythmic passages—and, of course, sing along to da-da-da-daah!

The Descendants is styled after works from the Bronze Age of Comic Books, a time before superhero comics were dominated by grim and gritty deconstructions; when comic books were fun. It is presented in a unique manner: as an all-prose comic book complete with issues, specials and annuals. Each tells a complete story that ties into the overall tale of the titular superheroes. In the first exciting volume: Three friends discover the their old school, The Psionics Training and Application Academy is actually a front for a clandestine organization dedicated to exploiting young people with powers rather than helping them. They band together, managing to rescue a small group of such people, bringing them to Mayfield, VA for safekeeping. Unfortunately, fate puts them in harm's way from new and dangerous sources beyond what they were already facing; from a resurrected sorceress, to the local crime boss, and a mad-woman with powered armor and a robot army! If our heroes want to live, they'll have to learn to come together as a super-team and as a family. They are heroes. They are people. This is their story. Collects the entire first volume of the webserial, including The Descendants #0-12, Descendants Special #1, and Descendants Annual #1. Bonus content includes the short story Who is... The Whitecoat?, and the Rise of Morganna miniseries. Content in this collection was previously published in the ebooks We Could Be Heroes, Tome Attacks, and Rise of Morganna.

For a world so out of tune, this treatise intends to correlate from various instruments of learning, a new sound--a sound of hope. This sound will be heard as each truth from key areas of knowledge will be played in a synthesis of theology, psychology, and philosophy, all in the context of a valid cosmology. To listen and read the key concepts and predictions of the secular authorities, our earth is either destined for a massive freeze or one ending in conflagration. Thus the concern of the author is that all too often each area of study is playing its own sound and, valid as it may be, is not listening or seeing what could be if these sounds became part of a symphony. In Sounds of Hope, Robert N. Janacek contends that, when these sounds are truly heard and projected in our anticipated symphony, a new and harmonious world will be enacted. At a time when there are almost constant sounds of hate, death, and hopelessness, a world awaits, one for us to hear and attend as a new concert, a concert playing a score of harmony and hope.

Using a mix of broad stylistic observation and detailed analysis, Adams distinguishes between late-seventeenth-century English style in general and Purcell's style in particular, and chronicles the changes in the composer's approach to the main genres in which he worked, especially the newly emerging ode and English opera. As a result, Adams reveals that although Purcell went through a marked stylistic development, encompassing an unusually wide range of surface changes, special elements of his style remained constant.

Life just isn't The Love Boat for nearly-thirty Shannon, the tongue-in-cheek heroine of Welcome to My Planet. Credit cards don't pay themselves, no obvious mate has appeared with her name pinned to his collar, and a job doing new-product research for a fledgling software company doesn't quite make ends meet in the meaning-of-life department. Then there's the loser boyfriend, another boyfriend, her therapist, and unforgettably, Shannon's mom, Flo, with her unrecognizable leftover casseroles and quirky advice for her daughter. In a fit of debt and with a bruised heart, Shannon moves back home to witness the day-to-day tremors of her parents' own marriage. This is a dark-and-light tale-freshly witty and poignant-told by a young woman with a universal touch.
