    The triangle becomes dissatisfied with its shape, so it pays a visit to the Shapeshifter to get another side and another angle. That is cool for a while, but pretty soon the now –quadrilateral wants another side and another angle. This pattern repeats itself until what was once the triangle has so many sides and angles that are so small it starts to look similar to a circle, and it can hardly keep its balance. What does it do then? The book includes a section for parents, teachers and other adults about the mathematics in the book, and tips on how to extend children's learning. A hardcover, colorful book that

    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.

    In this great book you will find timeless stories that have been retold through generations. Many stories from Greek and Roman mythology are included, as are tales from the Illiad and the Odyssey. The book is intended for adults to read to children, but older children could easily read it themselves and adults will find the stories interesting as well. The book is divided into two sections, one for ages five and up, and one for ages eight and up. The first section includes 19 myths, including The Gift of Athena, The Origin of the Seasons, Pegasus the Winged Horse, Cupid and Pschye, and Jason and the Golden Fleece. The second section includes twenty stories, including Perseus and the Gorgon's Head, The Riddle of the Sphinx, The Story of Helen of Troy, The Gods Take Sides, The Wooden Horse, and Aeneas Visits the Lower World. Preceding each myth is a list of vocabulary words and definitions, and pronunciation of difficult words is integrated into the text itself. Excerpts are also included that share how words have entered our language through these stories. ~ Rachel S.

    Fascinating facts about wildlife, coupled with drawing instruction for the beginning nature journalist, make this a perfect supplement to the Handbook of Nature Study or other nature instructional text. Each two- or four-page spread is devoted to a different animal and contains: a good amount of interesting information about the animal; one or more artist-rendered sketches; and step-by-step drawing instructions to sketch the animal yourself. The book was written and illustrated by a husband and wife team, Colleen and Michael Monroe. Colleen is the writer, and she has included interesting and sometimes surprising facts about each subject (did you know that newborn fawns are born with no scent to protect them from predators?). Michael is a nationally known, award-winning (and self-taught) wildlife artist who spends most of his year visiting schools around the country, encouraging children to never give up on their dreams. His love of nature and wildlife is reflected in the sketches which adorn each page. The drawing instruction is detailed, begins with simple shapes, includes written instruction for adding features through the illustrated progression of steps, and ends with a completed sketch that very closely resembles part of the artist's depiction. Two pages of drawing tips, including a mini-lesson on shading, precede the actual text. Subjects include: hummingbirds, birds, ducks, loons, turtles, herons, frogs, rabbits, white-tailed deer, white-tailed fawns, owls, bears, and wolves. The book ends with some simple things you can do to help wildlife like keeping dangerous litter contained, building birdhouses, and planting flowers. The book is about 36 pages in landscape format with a hard cover, making it a little more durable for outdoor use.

    Thirteen-year-old Naledi and her younger brother Tiro have lived their whole lives in their small South African village with their younger sister, aunt, and grandmother. Mother works far away in the big city of Johannesburg to support them, visiting when she can. When their young sister becomes very ill, Naledi decides that she and Tiro must find Mother before it is too late. Although Johannesburg is 300 miles away, Naledi and Tiro set out on foot to find their mother. Their journey is more eye-opening then they could have ever imagined, as they witness police pass raids, strict segregation between blacks and whites, and see for themselves how their mother and newfound friends live in the city. Author Beverley Naidoo has written a suspenseful and understandable story about apartheid in South Africa and what life is like for children and families under these circumstances. - Jess

    "In 1814, we took a little trip, along with Col. Jackson, down the mighty Mississip." If you're like me that might be about all you know or can remember about the War of 1812. Our reasons for fighting it were obscure; what was accomplished is likewise vague. Wouldn't you like to know more? This unassuming little book proves there is a lot more; providing an overview of the war – causes, invasions, the war fronts, victories, and peace – and then a battlefield-by-battlefield guide. Looking at the various regions where war action took place, battlefield and historic sites are visited. Maps, aerial views, photos, and text – supplied in a colorful, heavy paper format – all help tell the story of each site. Particularly helpful are the Quick History inserts that serve as summaries. The Nearby and Noteworthy sections identify places you might want to include on a tour. The Don't Miss sections help prioritize. Written to be a handbook for those who want to tour the various sites and understand the bigger picture, the book, nevertheless, makes a good quick study of the war. It was important; it defined boundaries for two countries and impacted the history of three people groups – Americans, Canadians, and Native Americans. And, then, of course, it gave us our National Anthem. 128 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    This book is a great reference for kids (or even adults) who want to know about all the presidents. From the makers of Time® magazine, the book has a magazine feel to it and is filled with colorful photographs and illustrations. A quick intro discusses how the presidency came to be and the three branches of government. Then, each president is given one page. Along with the colorful illustrations is concise information about each president. Information includes some personal history like education, family, etc., the president's road to the White House, and any important, significant, or memorable facts about the president (like policies they passed, respect or dislike they gained, and wars they entered). A timeline on the bottom of each page shows events that were taking place at the time of each presidency and "Did You Know?" boxes share extra exciting details about each president (for example, McKinley was the first president to ride in an automobile, Nixon was the first to visit all 50 states while in office, and Reagan was the only president to be wounded and survive an attempted assassination). Presidents are covered from George Washington to the second term of George W. Bush. The back of the book contains some useful information like Presidents at a Glance (gives a profile picture, birth/death/presidency dates, political party, wife and children of each president), a colorful illustration with descriptions of the different parts of the White House, and a bit of detail about First Ladies. With over 200 historical photographs, dozens of rare images of campaign buttons and documents, and an easy-to read format, this book is great for finding information on the presidents or reading for sheer enjoyment. 70 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
