He can feel electricity given off by his prey. He will lose and replace more than 10,000 teeth in his lifetime. Cool photos bring kids into the shark's world.

Jose was a boy with a song in his heart and a dance in his step. Born in Mexico in 1908, he came into the world kicking like a steer, and grew up to love to draw, play the piano, and dream.

With his heart to guide him, Jose left his family and went to New York to dance. He learned to flow and float and fly through space with steps like a Mexican breeze. When Jose danced, his spirit soared. From New York to lands afar, Jose Limon became known as the man who gave the world his own kind of dance.
Susanna Reich's lyrical text and Raul Colon's shimmering artwork tell the story of a boy who was determined to make a difference in the world, and did. Jose Born to Dance will inspire picture book readers to follow their hearts and live their dreams.

Live Writing Breathing Life into Your Words (Paperback): Fletcher Live Writing Breathing Life into Your Words (Paperback)
R150 R124 Discovery Miles 1 240 Save R26 (17%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This book is based on the simple idea that every writer has a "tool box." Instead of awls and hammers, a writer's toolbox contains words, imagination, a love of books, a sense of story, and ideas for how to make the writing live and breathe. I wrote this book to give you some practical strategies to throw into your toolbox. I hope you'll try them, because these are ideas that can make you a better writer.

This book is titled Live Writing, and you may be wondering what I mean by that. Most of us have read (and written!) the opposite kind of writing-dull, drab language that sounds about as interesting as a city phone book. By "live writing" I mean the kind of writing that has a current running through it-energy, electricity, juice. When we read "live writing", the words seem to lift off the page and burrow deep inside us.
