"Sherry A. Sherrod helps out teachers and library media specialists by giving them simplified procedures for producing easy display ideas. In three parts, the book covers planning displays, recognizing commemorative dates and weeks, and ideas for perking up media center and classroom bulletin boards. The suggested monthly topical displays are illustrated with from two to four drawings and/or photographs. A list of important dates and tips for effective display production and layouts is included."

Sherry Sherrod has some good display ideas that are easily constructed with hints for planning, and examples of various possible subjects. Although designed for schools, children's librarians might find this helpful as well.

Leaves of Green:
A Handbook of Herbal Remedies
by Maude E. Scott

Why this book???

Have you ever wondered how earlier civilizations survived without vitamin supplements, antacids, laxatives, pain killers, and a host of other over-the-counter medications? Well, first of all, they didn't have many of the illnesses and chronic diseases we have today. But when they did get sick, not having trained professionals, they used herbal remedies to treat everything from fevers to frostbite, from toothaches to tapeworms. It may surprise you to know that MANY OF THESE TREATMENTS ARE STILL RELEVANT TODAY.

With the rising cost of health care (I sometimes refer to it as sick care), and the growing interest in alternative forms of treatment, LEAVES OF GREEN provides a link to the past, help for the present, and prepares you for a healthier and happier future.

YES! ... LEAVES OF GREEN... "Don't go home without it."

HISTORY
The Rosewood Massacre
At A Glance

by The Rosewood Forum

The scope of this work is both factual and inclusive based on reports by newpapers and interviews of citizens. Second, this book addressesAfrican American people - those who were in the massacre and those who are presently preserving this story in the form of various documentation (radio, television, motion picture, songs, poems, etc.).

Most importantly this book relates the Rosewood Massacre to the Florida Legal System of Justice in 1923. In addition to the Florida 1994 landmark decision to pay restitution to the seven Rosewood survivors, this research has yielded some truly special results, including the Newberry, lynching and other unpublished massacres.
