Publisher: Open Road Media
The beloved naturist and author of My Family and Other Animals shares the pleasures and pitfalls of opening a zoo on the English Channel Island of Jersey. Spurred by his passion for animals and a lifelong dream, in the spring of 1959 Gerald Durrell opened the Jersey Zoo—now known as the Durrell Wildlife Park—on the grounds of an old manor house. The menagerie provided a safe habitat for rare and endangered species and exposed its human visitors to the wonders of nature. Dealing with escapee animals and overdrawn bank accounts, Durrell soon discovered that owning and operating a fledgling zoo was no easy task. But despite the setbacks, these charming, often hilarious stories make clear that, for Durrell, ensuring the park’s success and helping the creatures he loved so dearly was worth any obstacle. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Gerald Durrell including rare photos from the author’s estate.

Fox and His Friends
Author: Edward Marshall
Publisher: Red Fox beginners
One of a series of early reading books with large print and colour illustrations. Fox is lumbered with looking after his little sister, but she makes life much more exciting for him and his friends.
A little girl teaches her family and her friends how to relate to someone who is hearing impaired. This fun picture book carries an important message to children, how to learn not to judge or make fun of anyone just because they're different. The life of any disabled person is no fun and living with a disability has many challenges, but we can help to make their life easier and not harder. When Grandma Rosa lost her hearing, Sandra's parents became frustrated and sad. They didn't know what to do and how to learn to communicate better with her. They tried shouting, changing the tone of their voices or leaning closer to her ear when they talked, to no avail. Rosa could hear some sounds clearly, but certain sounds she couldn't hear well. It became an everyday struggle for them, and they missed the comforting family conversations at dinner time. "Look, Grandma," Sandra said to her grandmother one day. "I can show you the letters with my fingers when you can't hear what I say." "What do you mean showing it with your fingers?" Grandma Rosa asked. "I found a website for hearing impaired people, and it explains how they can talk to each other without words. There is a sign for every letter and number that they can make with their hands. We can learn the signs together," Sandra smiled happily. "Oh, I think that's a wonderful idea, Sandra," Grandma's eyes sparkled with excitement. "But it looks a little difficult. Do you think I could learn the signs?" "Of course, you can, Grandma, we can learn them together. And they did. They proved that with compassion, love, and hard work, they can overcome the obstacles of disability together.
THE IMPOTENT GIANT
Author: H John Lyke, Ph.D.
The Impotent Giant has nothing to do with being a Democrat or Republican. It has everything to do with what it means to be an American. Alarmed about who and what the United States of America represents, author Dr. H. John Lyke articulates how citizens can help to regain the moral and political leadership. Using psychological principles, he provides a discussion of why our country is in the fix it's in and how to return it to its former greatness. Dr. Lyke's research on the issues began with a re-examination of the lives of outstanding leaders, especially George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, two men who led the United States toward the attainment of American ideals. Studying the principles, courage, and actions of these men offers a model for effective leadership and rekindles one's pride in being an American, a pride that for many has shrunk drastically during the past ten years. The Impotent Giant examines where the country stands among other nations and how the citizens of the United States and those of the rest of the world perceive its leaders. It encourages citizens to elect the right leaders, discuss the right issues, and act for the right reasons.

Controlling Accounts.--The addition of special columns in books of original entry makes possible the keeping of Controlling Accounts. The most common examples of such accounts are Accounts Receivable account and Accounts Payable account. These summary accounts, respectively, displace individual customers' and creditors' accounts in the Ledger. The customers' accounts are then segregated in another book called the Sales Ledger or Customers' Ledger, while the creditors' accounts are kept in the Purchase or Creditors' Ledger. The original Ledger, now much reduced in size, is called the General Ledger. The Trial Balance now refers to the accounts in the General Ledger. It is evident that the task of taking a Trial Balance is greatly simplified because so many fewer accounts are involved. A Schedule of Accounts Receivable is then prepared, consisting of the balances found in the Sales Ledger, and its total must agree with the balance of the Accounts Receivable account shown in the Trial Balance. A similar Schedule of Accounts Payable, made up of all the balances in the Purchase Ledger, is prepared, and it must agree with the balance of the Accounts Payable account of the General Ledger." The Balance Sheet.--In the more elementary part of the text, the student learned how to prepare a Statement of Assets and Liabilities for the purpose of disclosing the net capital of an enterprise. In the present chapter he was shown how to prepare a similar statement, the Balance Sheet. For all practical...
