    Eric Liddell may be one of the best-known athletes of the early 20th Century (and hero of the film Chariots of Fire), but his Christian life is equally inspiring. This biography begins in China, where Eric's father worked as a missionary for many years. It recounts Eric's early childhood in China, his schooling in England, his athletic training, and his surprise victory at the 1924 Olympics. At the height of his fame, Eric left athletics to return as a missionary to China. A fascinating look at a man who kept his faith in Christ even in the most challenging circumstances. By Catherine Swift. 176 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    Learn animal noises and more from this fun board book, detailed by the works of Eric Carle! All the barn animals want to play with the spider, but she’s so focused on building her web she doesn’t even notice them. One of my favorite parts about this book is the spider’s web: it’s coated with a special ink so it rises up from the page, just enough for little hands to be able to feel it. A fun little tactile flair to a simple story. 32 pages– Laura
