    Another Newbery Award (1994) winner from the author of Number the Stars. A remarkable coming-of-age story about a young man who overcomes his society. Set in a "utopian" or "dystopian" (depending on your point of view!) society which is extremely regulated and controlled, Jonas is selected for the very special job of becoming the Receiver of Memory in this story about a community of the future. When Jonas realizes, however, what has been lost and what the price of conformity is, he makes a daring decision that will forever change his life. Our whole family read and discussed this book, finding it an excellent starting point for frank discussion of individuality and responsibility vs. security and homogeneity. Jonas is chosen to be the Receiver of Memory for his community. As he becomes aware of the choices his world has made, he is faced with a difficult decision.

    Although people have always regarded Benjamin Franklin as one of the most famous inventors in American history, few people realize that his genius was, in fact, a mouse. Yes, that's right - a mouse named Amos, who found his way to Benjamin Franklin's home one cold night. As one of those closest to Ben, Amos found it necessary to write this (amusing) portrayal of Benjamin Franklin to counter all of the stories written by those who had never even met Ben and certainly never knew that Amos was responsible for a great many of the much esteemed inventions. This classic has been amusing young readers for more than sixty years. 114 pgs. - Melissa

    Ever wonder what owls eat? Dissect an owl pellet and find out! Owls regurgitate the indigestible remains of their meals, which make their diet easy to investigate. This pouch contains one sanitary owl pellet and a bone chart. Use a tweezers or other small tool (not included) to dissect the pellet and then identify the remains using the chart. However, if you're grossed out by the "real thing," you may want to check out the Skeleton Pellets, which are synthetic versions of owl pellets with one (non-surprise) animal skeleton inside. - Jess
