Oh, I’ll be fine,” she said. “This is much warmer than that bus I used to take that Christmas I worked at Woolworth’s. It was so cold the windows used to frost over and—”

From beloved New York Timesbestselling, multiple-award-winning author Connie Willis comes another enchanting science fictional Christmas tale and screwball comedy, Take a Look at the Five and Ten. Readers in the need for a dose of Willis’s humor and heart will want to curl up with this novella for the holidays. This is exactly what I hoped for. The clarity, the heightened emotional state, the irrelevant details…” Ori’s holidays are an endless series of elaborately awful meals cooked by her one-time stepfather Dave’s latest bride. Attended by a loose assemblage of family, Ori particularly dreads Grandma Elving — grandmother of Dave’s fourth wife — and her rhapsodizing about the Christmas she worked at Woolworth’s in the 1950s. And, of course, she hates being condescended to by beautiful, popular Sloane and her latest handsome pre-med or pre-law boyfriend.In Year 5, your child will continue to add and subtract fractions. They will now be expected to add and subtract fractions whose denominators are multiples of the same number. For example: I requested this not reading the blurb because ultimately I know it will be a good read. So imagine me surprise to find out that this was a holiday tale. I am not a holiday person and only care to pillage the baked goods. So I had a small moment of dismay about the holiday aspect. I needn't have worried. This story was lovely. My Boss was pushing this on me after I asked her what she was reading and she couldn't stop going on and on about how wonderful this was. I gave into peer pressure and am here to say... in which as a young woman she worked at Woolworth's in downtown Denver one Christmas. It seems that anything in the conversation prompts her to spew forth this same tale in florid detail.

She has won, among other awards, ten Hugo Awards and six Nebula Awards. Willis most recently won a Hugo Award for All Seated on the Ground (August 2008). She was the 2011 recipient of the Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award from the Science Fiction Writers of America (SFWA). In Year 5, your child will be introduced to percentages. Talk about how ‘percent’ means ‘number of parts per hundred’. Talk about numbers that are represented in percentages. For example, you could work out what proportion of your child’s class at school are girls. Ask them to tell you how to represent the percentage as a fraction and decimal (for example, 55% = = 0.55).Your child will then have to multiply the numerator and the denominator by 2 to represent in eighths: The difference between the two phrases is that both can be used in the literal sense (to look in the specified direction), "look to" and "look up to" also have a figurative meaning.
