    Get a "dog's-eye-view" into one of America's greatest journeys of discovery. Seaman is the Newfoundland dog that accompanies Lewis and Clark and the men of the Corps of Discovery across the great interior of the United States to find the Northwest Passage to the Pacific. This historical account was written by Roland Smith as he took excerpts out of Captain Lewis' diary and then creatively retold the events from Seaman's viewpoint. This book is thoroughly researched and wonderfully creative. As we all know, dogs see, hear, and smell things we can never even dream of perceiving. Thus, who better to give additional insight to the adventures of Lewis and Clark than their canine friend who was there every step of the way? 287 pgs, pb. – elise

    Two dogs and a cat - three loyal friends. When the animals' owners have to leave for an extended length of time, Luath, Bodger, and Tao go to live with John Longridge until their family returns. During this time John leaves to go and stay at a cabin for two or three weeks with his brother, and his neighbors are going to care for the animals. John leaves on his trip, and the animals, sensing the fact that they are alone, set off for home by instinct. A misunderstanding leads Mrs. Oakes to the belief that he has taken the animals with him, and so she is unaware that the animals are on their own. Luath, the younger dog, is the unspoken leader of the group, leading the other animals straight west and towards home. Bodger is a much older dog, and his already weary body tires fast. Tao, the cat, helps Luath look out for Bodger against the many trials they will face in the open wilderness. Are the three friends up against more than they can handle in their nearly 300 mile journey across the Ironmouth Range in Canada? - Mel

    This gripping account of the holocaust is told from two perspectives - that of Helen Waterford, a German Jew; and Alfons Heck, a member of the Hitler Youth. Although very close in age and proximity, their heritages gave them vastly different experiences during World War II. Placing their remarkable stories side by side offers a radical testimony of life under Hitler's rule.

    Learn about the First Thanksgiving from Squanto's point of view. Squanto tells how he was captured by the British in 1614 and sold into slavery in Spain, but then returned to the New World several years later to become a friend and guide to the colonists. Squanto taught the colonists how to plant crops, hunt and survive in the wilderness; without his help, the first Thanksgiving would never have been possible. The book contains beautiful illustrations in earth tones, and a glossary of Native American terms appears in the back. By Joseph Bruchac. Illus. by Greg Shed. 32 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    The attack on Pearl Harbor by Japanese planes in 1941 is what drew America into going to war. Shortly after this attack, something that would be unheard of today began to happen. West Coast Japanese Americans were being rounded up and relocated to prison camps. This book focuses on Yuki, a young Japanese girl, and her experiences during this trying time. Her story (based on the author's own experiences) tells of the consequences of prejudice and the capacities of the human spirit to thrive even in the face of such tough obstacles. This book was first published in 1971 and is now a much-loved, widely read classic. Pb, 149 pgs. – elise

    The things that Lisa, her older sister Ruth, her younger sister Annie, and her mother had to endure is incredible. They lived in Berlin in 1938 when the Nazis were first starting to take over. Lisa's father, who is referred to as Papa, decides in the very beginning of this story to leave Germany and establish a foundation for his family in America. Meanwhile, life in Berlin is getting more dangerous for Jewish people, and as the threat of war is turning into reality, Papa sends a letter over, suggesting that his wife and their daughters flee to Switzerland, masking the emigration as a vacation. Mother is allowed to bring only 10 marks per person with her, which puts her in a very challenging financial situation. She keeps Annie with her and is forced to send Ruth and Lisa to a camp where there are other children in similar situations or without parents at all. The girls don't get enough to eat and don't have the kind of care that all children need. After they visit their mother, she senses this and takes them out of the camp. Pretty soon, all three girls are sent to live with three different families in Zurich, where they are well-nourished and thrive. Mother collapses from pneumonia and spends this time in the hospital. She recovers and the family is on their way to being reunited with their father, whom they have not seen for nearly a year by this time, as he has been saving for their tickets to America. Sonia Levitin tells a touching, and very real story, that I am sure was sadly not uncommon.

    Beginning the fourth Sunday before Christmas, many families set aside a few minutes a day to celebrate Advent and zero in on the true reason for the season. This wonderful story is designed to be used during Advent but really could just be read and enjoyed like a typical book. For each day of Advent, the book provides a short chapter of a story about a young boy whose family were shepherds during the time of Jesus' birth. Due to Jotham's poor attitude and a misunderstanding, Jotham is separated from his family and must travel across Israel in search of them. He faces many dangers but also meets many new friends. Ultimately, Jotham is reunited with his family on Christmas Eve, just in time for them all to witness the birth of Christ together. It's a charming tale, full of adventure and lessons, and is ideal for the whole family to read aloud. Each chapter probably takes about 10-15 minutes to read and usually concludes with a scripture verse that ties in with the story as well as a small, 1-2 paragraph devotional. Whether you use it to celebrate Advent in the traditional way or just read it for fun, this story is entertaining and a great reminder of what Christmas is really all about.
