    A lone little burro roams his home in the Grand Canyon, but his affinity for company, often in the form of people with flapjacks, gets him mixed up in more adventures than he ever counted on. After his friend dies, Brighty (named after the Bright Angel Creek) is kind of on his own. He does have one other friend that he summers with and who is willing to help out – as long as nobody tries to make him do anything he doesn't want to do! Brighty ends up in scrapes with cougars and mountain lions, meets President Teddy Roosevelt, and even helps with the search for the murderer of his friend. Through it all his huge heart, antics, and unique character will keep readers smiling. ~ Megan

    A true story of a gunned-down U.S. Air Force pilot and his struggle to survive 6 days with only grass and ants to eat. Captain Scott O'Grady of the U.S. Air Force started his morning like every other morning. Little did he know that later that day he would be shot down in his F-16 and have to parachute five miles down to hostile Bosnian soil. While the enemy is hunting for him and the U.S. Air Force thinks he died in the crash, Captain Scott O'Grady, all alone and over 10,000 miles away from home, knelt in prayer and stuck to his training. This book offers breathtaking excitement and a stunning example of one's limits and true faith in God. 134 pgs, pb. - Jon

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and this book proves that statement true time and time again. Readers will get to know Abraham Lincoln as never before as they read through this delightful work. The text is informative, yet readable and presented chronologically through Lincoln's life, beginning with the log cabin days he is famous for, through his political ambition and career, election and presidency, the trials of the Civil War, and finally his assassination. Photographs, illustrations, documents, and political cartoons from the days of his presidency are generously distributed throughout the text, giving readers the opportunity to see what they are reading about, allowing for greater understanding of the times and this great president. ~ Megan

    Though not uncommon for children to learn about the history of our flag or to visit the White House, Statue of Liberty, or another national landmark, they may never learn their histories. This book shares the stories behind America's patriotic symbols, from the flag, eagle, liberty bell, and Uncle Sam all the way to the Thomas Jefferson memorial. Each symbol is discussed within at least two pages, and the interesting text is accompanied by lighthearted black and white illustrations. 64 pgs. - Melissa

    In this book, Richard Maybury presents an idea-based explanation of the First World War. He explains how the explosion of the battleship Maine in 1898 was the beginning of a chain reaction that continues even today. Like other Maybury books, this one is written as a series of letters from Uncle Eric to his nephew. He focuses on the ideas and events that led to the war, events during the war, and how things led into WWII. Using stories and examples, he gives interesting and clear explanations on topics that can be difficult to understand. Timelines, maps, and quotes add to the book. Index and glossary included. ~ Rachel S.

    This book closely follows the same format as Richard Maybury's WWI book, but focuses on events and ideas of the Second World War. Through a series of letters, Uncle Eric explains how thoughts and actions during the war set the stage for the world we live in today. He links the poor way America entered and handled the second world war with subsequent wars such as the Korean and Vietnam Wars, the Iraq-Kuwait War, and even the Wars on Terrorism that began September 11, 2001. ~ Rachel S.

    "Rock-bottom prices!" "Reach for an ice cold one!" "Only $12.99 a month!" Although some form of advertising surrounds us from the time we get up until the time we go to bed at night, we rarely think much about it, except perhaps when a commercial really catches our attention. However, as more and more advertising strains to reach the child consumer, who will supposedly sway Mom and Dad to buy them that new cereal or the hot new electronic gadget, it becomes important - and interesting - to delve into the study of advertising. This fascinating and energetic book introduces readers to the world of advertising, including its history, seeing yourself as the "target," advertising strategies, common ploys of advertising, hidden messages in ads, recognizing advertising in disguise, becoming familiar with favorite advertising language, discovering some of the most outrageous advertising schemes, learning about the consumer's role and what they can do about advertising. The text is upbeat and clearly written, with plenty of anecdotes and real advertising stories from real companies sprinkled throughout. Readers will nod as they recognize some common advertising themes in the commercials they see every day, and will be shocked at the lengths to which some companies go to get their product "out there!" Illustrations are plentiful, and this is a fun read, with information packed in that most young people (or older ones) may not be familiar with. Lighthearted, but informative enough that I guarantee you'll never look at Toucan Sam® the same way again! 114 pgs. - Jess

    Reminiscent of trying to keep a balloon up in the air, this one takes a bit more finesse and skill. The Ultra Bouncing Bubble solution is more durable than your typical bubble solution, allowing you to use the included gloves to bounce them back and forth with a friend or break your own record for number of bounces. Set includes one 2 oz. bottle of bubble solution, one pan, one bubble tube and two gloves (one large and one small). Steph

    Instead of a few medium-sized bubbles, this device produces a whole flurry of tiny bubbles with each breath. Coat the end of the blowing tube with the included bottle of bizzy bubblz liquid, then gently blow to surround yourself with bubbles of very small proportion. Try to catch them as they float down to the ground; they will even stack on top of each other like bubble snowmen. A little more durable (and sticky!) then regular bubble solution, many of the bubbles won’t even pop when they land on the ground. We like this because if you listen carefully, you can hear a little squeaking sound as you pop them! - Steph

    Wouldn't it be ideal if we all lived where skies were clear and black at night, and stars sparkled and glimmered - and we could see them well enough to spot all the constellations? And it would be nice if we could travel just once during our astronomy studies to the Southern Hemisphere to view them. This is NOT all fanciful daydreaming, though, because you can really have all this with the Star Theater.

    This star projector is a plastic sphere with glow-in-the-dark markings and names of the largest and brightest stars surrounding Earth. The Earth is represented by the halogen light in the sphere’s center. The Star Theater transforms a darkened room into your own space theater - projecting shadows of the major stars, planets and constellations (and their names) on the walls and ceiling, as they rise above a realistic 360 skyline. Major constellations of the Northern and Southern hemisphere are viewable. We recommend placing in a room no larger than 12’ x 12’ with smooth, lightly colored walls and with lower ceilings to get the best clarity for viewing constellation names. You can project the night sky for the month, date and hour you desire. If it does clear up outside, you could even detach the clear sphere, with glow-in-the-dark markings, to use as a 3-D star finder outside! Also included is a table of the brightest stars and a spare halogen bulb. Easy set up; takes three AAA batteries (not included).
