    Emily Watson, a 12-year-old girl who had all but finished school, peered through a candy shop window. Her father had told the family he would send money every month, but lately, he hadn't come through. Now Emily, her mother, and her siblings are kicked out of their house to live in a filthy 2-room apartment. Because of the merciless rent collector, all able-bodied family members must work. Emily enters the shop, and asks about the help wanted sign. Frowning, the shop owner kicks her out of the shop, saying she was too young to work here, but referred her to a factory. Soon, what Emily thought would be a doable job turns wretched. She works 60 hours a week for only $4.00, with deductions for almost anything that might lose the boss a cent. The girls discriminate against her, her working conditions are dangerous, and her boss is heartless. Between the chapters of Emily's story are pages filled with facts about the sad plight of factory workers, their horrible neighborhoods, difficulties for immigrants, and other hardships of the time. A bittersweet ending concludes a story of poverty, friendship, and the sorrows of life as a factory worker. ~ Janine

    Written by Hans Christian Anderson and illustrated by Rachel Isadora, this book tells the classic story of a little girl who spends her last few hours lighting matches and seeing visions in the flames. While this is a classic piece of literature, parents should be aware of the main character's impending death when reading to sensitive or young children. 30 pgs, sc. – Laura

    It's the early 1900's, and the Boyers have just moved to the Florida backwoods. It's not easy to get their new life of the ground. They have a notion to grow strawberries and sweet potatoes and oranges to sell. The neighbors scoff at their ideas, saying that they can't grow anything in Florida. Birdie Boyer, just ten-years-old, is convinced that they can, if only they could keep everyone else's animals away from their crops! However, this isn't their only problem. The weather is unpredictable with unbearable heat, droughts and cold snaps that threaten their crops. The most worrisome problem is the neighbors next door, the Slaters, who seem to be waiting for any reason to start a feud. The Boyers hold their ground while trying to have a positive impact on the Slaters.

    Leaving the safety of the country and venturing into the city, young Polly Milton goes to stay in the home of her wealthy cousins. It doesn't take her long to realize she doesn't exactly belong and occasionally finds her cheeks aglow at the way of city life. Her cousins Fanny and Tom prove goodhearted, but their upbringing is slowly leading them on the path of becoming spoiled brats. Can Polly's good nature and contentment of doing things "old-fashioned" turn them from what seems their already set fate and bring much needed joy to this family? The second half of the book is set six years later when Polly returns to the city once more in hopes of being a music instructor. Chaos enters the scene as Mr. Sydney, who holds Fanny's interest, takes up a liking for Polly. Could it be that Polly feels the same way? Or will she soon discover the one for her is closer than she thinks? ~ Tasha

    This reprint of the 1884 classic by John S. White will bring Herodotus to life for children. Herodotus (the Father of History) recorded the background and struggles between the Greeks and the "barbarians" in the 400s B.C., essentially giving a detailed history of various cultures, religions, and lives in ancient times. White translated the work into English but maintained the spirit and flow of the original Greek. A very detailed, straightforward look at ancient history. Includes 50 illustrations. pb. ~ Rachel

    If there is one supplementary reference you'll want to have on your shelf when studying American history at the upper level, this is it. This incredible resource contains the text of over 70 original documents spanning 300 years of U.S. History. The documents are divided into eight chapters, including Colonial times, the War for Independence, the young Republic, the pre-Civil War years, the Civil War, Reconstruction and expansion, World War I and II, and modern times (1945-2002). I appreciate the uncomplicated nature of the book. The author, realizing that there are entire books written about many of these documents, has kept simple. Each document is briefly introduced, usually along with a small but full-color reproduction of the document. The text of the document, or the portion that is the most poignant, is then provided in a shaded box. Although some spellings have been modernized for ease in reading, the words themselves have been preserved. After the documents, a short "What They Were Saying" section provides responses to the document from newspapers, speeches, politicians and other people from the time the document was written. These fascinating entries provide us just a little bit of a peek into the window of time to understand the context of the document and the effect that it had on Americans. With such "biggies" contained here such as the Mayflower Compact, the Stamp Act, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Louisiana Purchase Treaty, the Dred Scott Decision, the Constitution of the Confederate States, the Emancipation Proclamation, the Reconstruction Act, the Social Security Act, the Civil Rights Act, and the USA Patriot Act, this book will easily find a use with any U.S. history curriculum you may be using. 224 pgs, pb. – Jess

    A very difficult thing for teen girls to understand is how special they are just being themselves. The media and society send messages that tell them that they have to look a certain way, act a certain way, or hang out with the right kind of people to be 'cool.' Teaching teen girls that they are valuable is an important life lesson and one that will sustain them through adulthood.

    Kate Conner is a Christian author and blogger who has reached a multitude of teen girls with the message, "You are beautiful, You are valuable, You are enough." Kate also counsels young girls and has taken some of that encouragement and wise words and put it into 10 Things for Teen Girls . Teens will appreciate her simple honesty and straightforward advice concerning today's concerns. She talks to them about how they dress and how it is perceived by guys, how to act, being honest with yourself, and keeping God at the center of your decisions and thoughts. The advice gets practical: don't go to tanning beds; be careful how you post on social media; smoking is not cool; don't play stupid to get attention; and don't let a guy make you feel inferior or weak. Kate writes in a way that will appeal to some teenage girls, but be warned – she is very blunt. Some of the things she says and the terminology might seem harsh to a gentler spirit. 188-pgs, pb. ~ Donna
