Turning Pages: My Life Story

product image
$17.99
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor tells her own story for young readers for the very first time!

As the first Latina Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor has inspired young people around the world to reach for their dreams. But what inspired her? For young Sonia, the answer was books! They were her mirrors, her maps, her friends, and her teachers. They helped her to connect with her family in New York and in Puerto Rico, to deal with her diabetes diagnosis, to cope with her father's death, to uncover the secrets of the world, and to dream of a future for herself in which anything was possible.

In Turning Pages, Justice Sotomayor shares that love of books with a new generation of readers, and inspires them to read and puzzle and dream for themselves. Accompanied by Lulu Delacre's vibrant art, this story of the Justice's life shows readers that the world is full of promise and possibility--all they need to do is turn the page.

Unbeatable Betty: Betty Robinson, the First Female Olympic Track & Field Gold Medalist

product image
$17.99

An inspiring picture book biography of the first woman to win a gold medal in track and field. Young readers intrigued by the Summer 2021 Olympics in Tokyo will be inspired by this story. This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 4 to 6. It's a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.

This powerful volume provides a specific but inspiring tale of athletics, feminism, resilience, and teamwork. This vivid portrait is sure to encourage young readers and listeners to pursue their dreams. --Kirkus

With Joanie Stone's colorful illustrations and Allison Crotzer Kimmel's inspirational text, this biography is a reminder of how it takes more than sheer talent to be a champion; an unbeatable spirit of determination and hard work is also needed.

At only sixteen years old, Betty Robinson became the first female gold medalist in track and field in the 1928 Olympics and an overnight sensation. She was set for gold again and had her eyes on the 1932 Olympics.

Her plans changed forever when a horrible plane crash left her in a wheelchair, with one leg shorter than the other. But Betty didn't let that stop her. In less than five years, she relearned how to stand, to walk, and finally to run again and try to taste gold once more in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin.

Perfect for Women's History units, as well as for reports on lesser-known sports heroes, Unbeatable Betty includes an author's note narrating Betty's later life after her win, as well as a bibliography.

"The text flows well as it tells this heartening story of grit, determination, and lasting achievement. Using color and texture well, the nicely composed digital illustrations convey a sense of athletic grace that enhances the inspiring story." --Booklist

"A great choice for women's history lesson plans, gym teachers, or to teach the character trait of determination. Pair with Kathleen Krull's Wilma Unlimited or Pat Zietlow Miller's The Quickest Kid in Clarksville for a dashing good time." --School Library Journal

Usborne Fold-Out Solar System

$14.99
The book folds out into one long, beautifully illustrated and double-sided picture of the solar system (not to scale, of course) - 8 illustrated pages on the front, 7 illustrated pages on the back. The picture features the sun, planets, a selection of significant spacecraft, comets, asteroids and moons. The artwork is lovely and richly detailed, and the book can stand on its edge, so can be left open and on display on a desk or bookshelf. The objects on the front have basic labels telling you what everything is, but do not distract from the artwork. The back has a reduced version of the same artwork (as only 7 pages), and is annotated, packed with brief descriptions and interesting, fun snippets of information about all the objects and spacecraft shown, so kids can begin to find out about them and develop an interest in space. The back also includes explanations of terms such as 'planet' and 'asteroids' etc., and a fact box for each planet with information such as size, distance from the sun, number of moons etc. to give an idea of the scale involved.

Very Short, Entirely True History of Mermaids

product image
$12.99
From Ariel to the current craze for Sirens, mermaids have captivated our imaginations. But what's true and what's fairy tale?

For centuries, mermaids have appeared in the folklore of cultures from around the world, including the Near East, Europe, Asia, and Africa. And Disney made everyone want to dive under the sea with Ariel when the movie The Little Mermaid hit theaters in 1989. But what are mermaid stories based on?

Many myths say these creatures are half human and half fish, while others claim they are simply manatees mistaken for something more magical. Some grant wishes and fall in love, yet others have lured sailors to their doom.

Although we can't say for sure where the tales of these elusive figures first originated, author Sarah Laskow separates the fact from the fiction. This full-color, fully illustrated book tells you all you need to know about the myths, science, and history that surround mermaids.
