What happens when hard-working people quit? In a world filled with consumers, what happens if the producers give up and leave?

Ethan and Emily Tuttle tackle these questions in their latest adventure, this time as clowns in the visiting circus. Incorporating ideas from Ayn Rand's hit novel "Atlas Shrugged", this book shows how things begin falling apart when socialism creeps in.

"Do your kids know how the free market works? Ethan and Emily Tuttle have grown up taking for granted the many things they use: clothes, cars, homes, backpacks--even something as simple as a pencil. In this fun adventure to an amazing factory, the twins learn why even the common pencil is a miracle--one that nobody actually knows how to make--and how the process by which it is made is the key to prosperity in our modern age. Based on the classic essay "I, Pencil" by Leonard Read, your children will learn about the economic principles of spontaneous order, division of labor, competition, trade, and the free market--and why these things bring the people of the world together in peaceful cooperation."--Page 4 of cover.

This user-friendly book is aimed at helping students of Mandarin Chinese learn and remember Chinese characters. At last--there is a truly effective and enjoyable way to learn Chinese characters! This book helps students to learn and remember both the meanings and the pronunciations of over 800 characters. This otherwise daunting task is made easier by the use of techniques based on the psychology of learning and memory. key principles include the use of visual imagery, the visualization of short "stories," and the systematic building up of more complicated characters from basic building blocks. Although Learning Chinese Characters is primarily a book for serious learners of Mandarin Chinese, it can be used by anyone with interest in Chinese characters, without any prior knowledge of Chinese. It can be used alongside (or after, or even before) a course in the Chinese language. All characters are simplified (as in mainland China), but traditional characters are also given, when available. Key features: Specially designed pictures and stories are used in a structured way to make the learning process more enjoyable and effective, reducing the need for rote learning to the absolute minimum. The emphasis throughout is on learning and remembering the meanings and pronunciations of the characters. Tips are also included on learning techniques and how to avoid common problems. Characters are introduced in a logical sequence, which also gives priority to learning the most common characters first. Modern, simplified characters are used, with pronunciations given in pinyin. Key information is given for each character, including radical, stroke-count, traditional form, compounds, and guidance on writing the character. This is a practical guide with a clear, concise and appealing layout, and it is well-indexed with easy lookup methods. The 800 Chinese characters and 1,033 compounds specified for the original HSK Level A proficiency test are covered.
