Paddle-to-the-Sea covers the Great Lakes, St. Lawrence River, and North Atlantic. Tree in the Trail includes the Great Plains and Southwest. Minn of the Mississippi leads children on an adventure down the Mississippi River and into the Gulf of Mexico. Seabird presents an overview of world geography. Pagoo follows the life of a young hermit crab, trying to grow up in a tide pool - without being eaten along the way. If you've never read a Holling C. Holling book, you're in for a treat!

Each blends science, history, and geography into a narrative told from the viewpoint of a central "character"'s adventures or experiences. It's difficult to imagine a more appropriate choice for studying these topics. Can be used as a one-semester course at 2-3 lessons per week or a 1-year course at 1-2 lessons per week.

    A masterful account of this most amazing American. "A biography of Franklin written with a sweep and verve worthy of its subject and brilliantly illustrated." — The New Yorker. This superb biography of the printer, statesman, author, reformer, inventor and ambassador reveals a Benjamin Franklin who in his time lived more lives than many men together. The brilliance and inexhaustible ingenuity of mind that fascinated his contemporaries continues to charm us now in Daugherty's work of perhaps America's most distinguished citizen and most interesting human being. Here is an understanding of the Poor Richard that underlay all Franklin's life, through honors and distinctions, foreign and domestic, saying with shrewd Yankee economy: "Well done is better than well said." As with all of Daugherty's books, his illustrations of two- and three-color compliment the meaty text for the enjoyment of all. (description by Beautiful Feet)
