1 Dvorak, Otakar--Paul J. Polansky, Editor Antonin Dvorak, My Father

Otakar Dvorak's book about his father can be recommended especially to those readers who love Dvorak's music, but who do not propse to study this music professionally. The merit of this book is that we can see this great composer as a human being, a very noble-hearted man who was modest, religious, and humble, and who was in love with nature and his family. --PhDr. Milan Kuna, CSc, Editor in Chief, Antonin Dvorak's Correspondence, Prague, Czech Republic

As Day Breaks: An Uplifting Story of Beauty in Sky and Earth and Sea for a Creative Child, Halama, Theofil
2 Halama, Theofil As Day Breaks: An Uplifting Story of Beauty in Sky and Earth and Sea for a Creative Child
Merrick, New York, USA Cross-Cultural Communications 2015 0893048321 / 9780893048327 First Hard Cover New Children's Story 7 1/4 x 8 1/2 Hana Čichoňová and Marek Pražák 
"AS DAY BREAKS is not like any other book for youngsters. This author’s album, consisting of some ten 'early bird' entries, fulfills what it sets out to be: an uplifting excursion for a creative child. Skillfully refined by one with keen insights into our human community, this narrative in verse by Theofil Halama brings us through cosmic depths up to the heights of a bird’s eye view wide open to our daily problems as observed by the grown-up child. Endowed with invention and conspicuous sense of contrast, our author’s playfully optimistic messages prevail throughout this work, befittingly accompanied with the intuitive and distinctive graphic art of Hana Čichoňová and an equally complementary foreword by Marek Pražák. This work will bring young readers close to faraway places and the scents of the Pacific where Sun and Sea ever remain the best of friends. – Jiří Urbanec
