Though we didn’t plan for this, today’s posts are turning out to reflect noteworthy children’s book series. In a similar manner that it is beneficial for our children to be informed about their less privileged peers around the world, it is also advantageous that they are informed about cultures and people different from them who reside right in their own backyards.

For example, to help us bridge cultural gaps, eradicate racial stereotypes and cultivate meaningful relationships between peoples of the African American and Caucasian races, we must be open to knowledge of each other’s cultures and cultural nuances. One company taking a stab at creating awareness of the African American culture via a series of Children’s books is Papa Lemon Books.

Papa Lemon Books is a multi-cultural children’s book series aimed at teaching all children about our country’s diverse history. Each book is authored by co-founder Lehman Riley and features his African American grandfather, Papa Lemon, as a main character and positive role model for youth. Papa Lemon stories incorporate true adventures of Papa Lemon and his family as they lived and learned while providing a stimulating, diverse perspective for children.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
