Find out who lives in a hive, a shell, a garage, and a hangar in this lovely rhyming book by Curious George creator H. A. Rey. Each spread features a four line poem and an image of a particular "house" with a big, sturdy flap to lift to reveal who or what lives inside! It's all saturated in Rey's familiar, classic color palette and makes for a multi-sensory read-aloud experience for little ones who love animals or transportation--or both. AGES: 4-7 AUTHOR: Hans Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Curious George has been published in numerous languages. And many, many Curious George books have followed.
Providing a basic foundation for advanced graduate study and research in the mechanics of solids, this treatise develops systematically the fundamentals of finite inelastic deformations of heterogeneous materials. The book combines the mathematical precision of solid mechanics with the physics-based micro-structural knowledge of materials science, presenting a coherent picture of finite inelastic deformation of single and polycrystalline metals.
This collection of literature attempts to compile many of the classic works that have stood the test of time and offer them at a reduced, affordable price, in an attractive volume so that everyone can enjoy them.
