    5/5 HollyWK - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Totally Bamboo Cutting and Serving Board, Alaska State (Kitchen) I ordered two cutting boards - one Texas and one Alaska. The Alaska board is missing South East Alaska, but otherwise they are both great. I am from Texas and my husband is from Alaska so I hung them up in our kitchen together. He says there is a problem with the sizing. I have included a picture of what they look like and another of what he says they should look lie., August 9, 2015

    Bamboo Cutting Board Massachusetts State

    5/5 lcarr - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Totally Bamboo Cutting and Serving Board, Massachusetts State (Kitchen) I purchased this for a gift for a dignitary from Iceland. I thought it would be easy to slip into their luggage going back. This quality of this board far exceeded my expectations. It was beautifully made and more sturdy that I had thought it would be. I was concerned that the "cape cod" part might break off but I am sure that even under rigorous use this would not be an issue.

    Fun shape for quality board!

    5/5 LoLo - See all my reviews This review is from: Totally Bamboo Cutting and Serving Board, North Carolina State (Kitchen) I have a few standard boards from this company and I love them. Great quality and they last forever (you shold oil them occasionally though). I love the State shapes! I ordered California and was surprised at the size and functionality. I had planned on just giving it as a gift to be put out as decoration but you can do fun things with it. I got creative and put the board together with wine, cheese and nuts and brought it as a host gift. It was a total hit! She used it to serve the cheese and other appetizers The board itself look and feels really expensive and the shape is so fun. I would love to get more for Christmas gifts (mom, don't look) but Amazon seems to be out of stock on a lot of states. I think it would be really fun to create a theme gift basket around the State. Absolutely recommend. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 8, 2013

    Fantastic Book On Missouri For Both Kids And Adults!

    This book is GREAT! As a school teacher, I'm delighted to have this book in my classroom. As a parent, I'm delighted to have it at home. It's an alphabet book, a poetry book, a textbook, and an art book all in one! Though I have lived in Missouri all my life, I sure learned some new things by reading S is for Show Me. I learned about the Kimmswick Bone Beds where mastodons used to live. I learned that nearly all corncob pipes in the world are made in Washington, MO! I learned about caves, springs, animals, ice cream cones, the Pony Express, the Civil War and so much more. This book should be read over and over because there is so much information that it just can't be absorbed in the initial reading. The illustrations are beautiful. Many of the paintings contain hidden details that my kids love to search for. The poems are fun to read aloud to young children and give them just enough information to spark their curiosity.

    FUN for kids and adults

    I purchased this as a gift for my fourth-grade nephew, who was taking Missouri history in school. When I received it, I was so impressed -- beautiful photographs & illustrations, fun stores -- that I ordered another for a friend who recently moved to Missouri from California. The book was a big hit! My nephew's older brother informed me that he had checked this out of his school library several times and thought it was one of the coolest books ever.This book is ideal for a kid of ten or eleven, but it is written at a level that would appeal to adults, as well. I grew up in Missouri and didn't know half of the stuff in this book. Not all of the anecdotes are particularly sophisticated and it might be a bit fluffy for a real Missouri history buff, but there are plenty of great anecdotes, colorful photographs and illustrations. it contains the kind of stories that will really stick with kids over the years -- ghosts, dogs, etc. Along with the content, the presentation... 5/5 Carol C.

  • The Struggle for Missouri

    Rating (4 reviews):
    (3.8/5)

    Excellent Civil War History

    This 1909 book is a very fine account of the political and military events in MO from the secession of SC(1860) up to and including the Battle of Pea Ridge, AR, in 1862. The book is especially noteworthy in that it contains a great deal of the contemporary correspondence from the principal military and political leaders on both sides of the conflict.The book is dedicated to "the Union Men of Missouri" and has a definite northern bias which is especially evident in the first chapter which contains an extremely unflattering portrait of pre-war southern society. But the author is relatively even handed throughout the remainder of the book and even seems to develop a grudging respect for Confederate general Sterling Price.My main criticism(and it's a relatively small one) is that the book stops with Pea Ridge since, in the author's words, "the battle for Missouri had been fought and won". Though this is correct, it must be added that Sterling Price again invaded MO... 4/5 rw-chesterfield,MO - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    A History that Reads Like a Novel

    The book is a definite five-star. It's a history book rather than a novel, but is written more like a novel, even though there's not a principal character.The story is an account of the civil war in Missouri, from before it begins until it's nearly over. The writer sympathizes with General Price, but is clearly on the other side, on the side of the north. Although I wasn't here during that war, the writer presents General Fremont as possibly more incompetent that he was. It's almost not possible to imagine a person as ineffective as the writer says General Fremont was. A small caveat: I've never been in a military battle and don't know how the participants react to death and suffering, but even though the writer reports numbers killed and wounded in various battles, he seems almost indifferent to every problem those can cause, except the military ones. The story ends with one of the South's last campaigns, with the North's victory nearly complete in Missouri. David Carlyle,... 5/5 David Carlyle - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Love it but the quality could improve.

    4/5 G8trFan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Collegiate Shaft Gripper Mascot Headcover (Sports) I love this head cover! First of all it covers my giant driver, second it has an integrated shaft protector for those expensive graphite shafts. I had this rush delivered to Tuscon for my Christmas vacation where I played 5 rounds of golf. It was shipped when promised and arrived looking great.I have only one complaint (and I know this is a small thing). The integrated shaft protection clamps on to the shaft using some sort of "c" shaped clip sewn under the fabric lining of the neck. This part is down at the bottom, under the F on Albert's shirt. The stitching sewn over this "c" clip started to pull out the first day that I used it. I don't really care, and the shaft is in no danger of being damaged, but it is definitely something that could be improved.

    Like the looks; awful durability

    1/5 Will Barr - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Collegiate Shaft Gripper Mascot Headcover (Sports) Like the looks of this but the piece of plastic that is used to hold the bottom of the head cover on to the club pulled through the stiching within the first two rounds i played with it. Unfortunately, because i didn't play for several months, by the time it ripped it was out of the return window. very disappointing. Would not recommend this to anyone as it is clear that there is a design flaw here. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 20, 2013

    Excellent way to identify birds around you

    Birds in the backyard is something that I seldom paid attention to, until my 4 year old daughter started observing them and asking me questions about. I had to get a book ! This book was my choice based on the reviews on Amazon. I have soon discovered that bird watching in your backyard is fun - not just for kids, but for adults too. There are at least 6 or 7 species of birds that frequent our backyard. Within a week, this book has helped us identify the American Robin, the mourning dove and the cardinals (male and female - which look different from each other). Once you get to know the type of bird, it is interesting how your whole perception about your backyard changes. It is no longer a dull backyard with all those noisy birds.The birds in this book (one bird per spread with picture on the left and ample description on the right) are ordered by color. In some species, females look different from the males, so they are listed in different places, but have reference to... 5/5 Do Will (Saint Louis, MO USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
