    14-year-old Velvet is a teenager in the late 1920's who dreams of owning many horses. One day she sees a horse jump over a five-foot-high fence.

After riding him in small competitions, she begins to train Piebald for the Grand National steeplechase. Velvet disguises herself as a man to enter the race. Velvet wins, but falls off the horse afterwards due to exhaustion. At first aid, they discover she is a girl.

    In 1831, Alexis de Tocqueville and Gustave de Beaumont spent nine months in the United States studying American prisons on behalf of the French government. Along with the prison system, they studied every aspect of American public and private life-the political, economic, religious, cultural and social life of our young nation. One profound discovery Mr. Tocqueville noted was the leading role of religion with its constitutional separation from government. Mr. Tocqueville wrote about his experiences, first amazing readers in 1835 and 1840, and these writings continue to amaze readers today. This scholarly work features the English translation, translation notes, listing of key terms, appendices, early outlines, drafts, extensive bibliography, and other vital references for the serious student of democracy. Two volume set totals nearly 1700 pgs. SC. ~Deanne

    The First Big Book of Space by Catherine Hughes is a wonderful, kid-friendly introduction to our solar system. This hardcover, 128-page book uses a format with plenty of illustrations and photos to engage your young ones.

    Five chapters explain familiar objects first (sun, moon and earth) and then move out into the solar system – Looking Up From Earth, Earth's Neighborhood, Earth's Other Neighbors, Far Far Away, and Exploring Space. Throughout the chapters you will find fact boxes that give an overview of each topic, Pop-Up Facts that offer added information to the main text, beautiful art, photos, and illustrations with labeling for your visual young learner. Questions are also scattered through the chapters for discussion points or an extension of the content. Expand your child's astronomy vocabulary with the terms that are introduced throughout; the glossary (at the back) lists them alphabetically with short definitions. Rounding out the chapters is a two-page map of the solar system that can be used to see planet order, practice naming the planets, and to see the different planet categories – rocky, gas, and dwarf.

    The text is simply written for easier understanding, and for beginning readers. If your child isn't reading yet, this is a good parent read-aloud. The information is solid and fact-based with no theory interjection. Two pages of Parent Tips are offered at the back of the book to build on the information presented – nine activities in all. Some fun options include watching the sunrise together, observing the movement of the sun, following the phases of the moon, learning the poem "Star Light, Star Bright," and more. "To infinity and beyond…" with your little space explorers. ~ Donna

    This is a little more than just a straight atlas. It starts off like any other atlas with all the essential information: how to use the atlas, kinds of maps (including projections and how maps are made), how to read a map, the earth in space, the earth in motion, the land, the physical world, climate and vegetation, environment and endangered species, the political world, people, and world economics. Now on to the map section, which is divided into eight smaller sections, focusing on each continent (and the oceans). Each continent is mapped in two distinct ways. The first is a map of the continent's physical features, followed by a political map. After the maps are spectacular photographs of people and places from around the continent. Then the chapter takes a closer look at the countries, and in some cases states, which make up that continent. Statistics are included in each major region, including languages spoken, land areas, religions, economics, populations, important cities, and more. The maps are full color and easy to look at and read. The last section of the books includes flags and statistics from each country, a glossary and index. At about 9" x 12", this large, softcover atlas is convenient and easy to use for young explorers. ~ Zach
