The-pier-at-the-end-of-the-world-cover

The Pier At The End Of The World

THE PIER AT THE END OF THE WORLD, by Paul Erickson, is a lyrically written story that follows a day in the life of the denizens lurking in the cold, tide-swept waters beneath a remote pier on the shore of a northern sea.

swimming-home-cover

Swimming Home

In SWIMMING HOME, by Susan Shetterly, the story follows a school of fish (river herring, or alewives) on a journey of hundreds of miles, escaping porpoises, seals, eagles, and herons.  Swimming Home is also the moving story of a boy and his father who see the fish stopped just short of their goal by a new road, and transport them across the last hundred feet.

the-secret-pool-cover

The Secret Pool

In THE SECRET POOL, by Kimberley Ridley and illustrated by Rebekah Raye, we learn that it's possible to walk right by a vernal pool and not notice it. Often mistaken for mere puddles in the woods, vernal pools are the source of life for many interesting creatures. If you look carefully, you can find them—and be amazed!

the-secret-bay-cover

The Secret Bay

Estuaries form where river meets sea and fresh water mixes with salt. Teeming with life, these places of salt marshes, mudflats, and tidal backwaters serve as nursery areas for oceangoing fish, migratory stopovers for shorebirds, and homes for an amazing diversity of snails, bivalves, fish, mammals, horseshoe crabs, fiddler and blue crabs, terrapin turtles, plankton, and many others, all of whom we meet in the pages of this delightful book.

before-we-eat-cover

Before We Eat

Before we eat, many people must work very hard planting grain, catching fish, tending animals, and filling crates. In this book, vibrantly illustrated by Caldecott Medalist Mary Azarian, readers find out what must happen before food can get to our table to nourish our bodies and spirits.

sheila-cover

Sheila Says We're Weird (but we're just green)

Sheila is either hanging over the back fence or hanging out with her neighbors. They're interesting, but they're weird. Why do they hang their laundry outside instead of using the dryer? Why are they riding their bikes to the library instead of just using the car? Why do they mow their lawn with a push mower when a gas mower is much faster? But Sheila discovers that their homemade soup sure tastes good, that she likes picking cherry tomatoes and strawberries in their garden, and it's pretty cozy to sit around the woodstove in the winter. Are Sheila's neighbors really weird, or do they have some good ideas going on?

The Soda Bottle School

In THE SODA BOTTLE SCHOOL, students, in a Guatemalan village, are squished into their tiny schoolhouse, two grades to a classroom. The villagers had tried expanding the school, but the money ran out before the project was finished. No money meant no materials, and that meant no more room for the students. Until one boy got a wonderful, crazy idea: Why not use soda bottles, which were readily available, to form the cores of the walls? Sometimes thinking outside the box—or inside the bottle—leads to the perfect solution.

Under the Night Sky

Under the Night Sky

Winter has a special beauty for those living in northern climates--even for those who live in cities. And winter nights can provide the most spectacular sights of all! To her son's great surprise, a working, single mom breaks her routine one night and rushes her son downstairs to join their neighbors as they spontaneously celebrate the beauty of the northern lights--the aurora borealis. Nature is the central character in this story, and the spell it weaves provides this mother and son with a special moment they can look back on with great happiness.

Sea Soup Zooplankton

Sea Soup: Zooplankton

In SEA SOUP: ZOOPLANKTON, by Mary M. Cerullo, we learn that a teaspoon of sea water can hold a soupy serving of a million zooplankton! These tiny animals often look like weird life forms from outer space or larger animals such as jellyfish. In this newest volume, Mary Cerullos text answers intriguing questions about these tiny animals that have shaped our world, while Bill Curtsingers extraordinary photomicroscopy serves up tantalizing images of this sea soup. Many of the photos for these books were taken at Maine's Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Science and the Darling Marine Center.

Saving Birds

Saving Birds

In SAVING BIRDS, by Pete Salmansohn and Stephen W. Kress, we learn there are many kinds of heroes in our world. In six multicolor, multicultural stories we’ll learn about grownups and young people fighting against the odds to save wild birds--and about the birds themselves, some on the brink of extinction. Puppet shows are part of a Protection Through Pride program educating the indigenous people of the cloud forests of Chiapas, Mexico, so that they’ll join efforts to stop the habitat destruction and poaching threatening the colorful quetzals that share their forests. On Devil’s Slide Rock off the coast off California, we’ll watch young scientists brave the crashing surf and steep cliffs to restore a colony murres wiped out in an oil spill. Despite the tensions of war in Israel, work continues to keep a handsome falcon from disappearing, and in the vast and rural wetlands of southcentral China, we’ll see how the fates of black-necked cranes and impoverished villagers are tied together. Herculean efforts in New Zealand have helped save the black robin, once the world’s rarest songbird, and we’ll learn how an international team from the American zoos and organizations in Sarawak has come up with a surprising plan to save jungle hornbills from being hunted for their feathers.

 

Riparia's River

Riparia's River

In RIPARIA'S RIVER, by Michael Caduto, when Gretchen, Jason, Mark, and Daphne find their favorite swimming hole filled with green slime, they are horrified. A mysterious, almost magical naturalist named Riparia helps the children understand why the water became polluted-and together they figure out what they can do to bring clean water back to the river they all love. This lively story about non-point source pollution is filled with both information and action. Realistic, lush illustrations by Olga Pastuchiv illuminate the children's passion for their river and the ecosystem it supports.

Project Puffin

Project Puffin

In PROJECT PUFFIN, by Stephen W. Kress, readers discover why puffins, with their large, colorful beaks, their upright posture, and their big, dark eyes, are popular all over the world. But for the past hundred years, puffins along the coast of Maine have been threatened with local extinction. Biologist Stephen Kress decided to try to bring puffins back to Maine with an experiment that had never been attempted before. Stunning color photographs on every page capture each step of this wildlife success story. As you learn about The Puffin Project, you'll also learn all about puffins how they are so wonderfully adapted to their ocean environment, how they catch fish, socialize, nest in burrows, and raise their young.

Life Under Ice

Life Under Ice

In LIFE UNDER ICE, Marine photographer Bill Curtsinger has returned to Antarctica a number of times to photograph the animals and plants that survive in the icy, ice-capped waters at the end of the earth. Mary Cerullo shares his story with us, telling what’s it like to start a diving trip by cutting a hole in ice eight to ten feet thick, then diving into the chilly depths with the light shining through your entry hole the only beacon to your escape route. Bill’s amazing photographs and his curiosity about the world combine to show us a strange and wonderful part of our earth.

Eye of the Whale, The

The Eye of the Whale

In THE EYE OF THE WHALE by author/illustrator Jennifer O’Connell, a distress call was radioed to shore by a local fisherman off the coast of San Francisco. He had discovered a humpback whale tangled in hundreds of yards of crab-trap lines, struggling to stay at the water’s surface to breathe. A team of volunteers answered the call, and four divers risked their lives to rescue the enormous animal. What followed was a rare and remarkable demonstration of animal intelligence that has been celebrated around the world.

City Fish, Country Fish

City Fish, Country Fish

In CITY FISH, COUNTRY FISH, by Mary Cerullo, we discover that how like some people live in the country, close to the land, where they enjoy peace and quiet, others live in high-rise apartments in the city and love the hustle and bustle of crowds and nonstop activity, both day and night. In many ways fish are very similar. In the ocean there are places that have some of the characteristics of the country or of the city. Like the classic tale of The City Mouse and the Country Mouse, there are advantages and disadvantages to each habitat. We'll compare how the fishes that live in tropical seas (the city) and those that swim through cold oceans (the country) meet the challenges and opportunities of their own ecosystems.

Everybody's Somebody's Lunch

Everybody's Somebody's Lunch

EVERYBODY IS SOMEBODY'S LUNCH, by Cherie Mason, casts predators in an entirely new light as a sensitive young girl, shocked and confused by the death of her cat, learns the roles that predator and prey play in the balance of nature. Gently and gradually, she comes to understand why some animals kill and eat other animals in order to live. It is one of nature's most exciting and important lessons. Children and all who read to them will come away with a new respect for all wildlife.

Bear-ly There

Bear-ly There

In BEAR-LY THERE, by author/illustrator Rebekah Raye, we learn what do you do when there's a bear in your backyard. A big black bear shows up one moonlit night and creates a real ruckus, first breaking into the shed where the grain is kept for the geese (who aren't too happy about it), then raiding the bird feeders. The bear is also causing problems at other homes in the neighborhood, getting into the trash and compost and eating dog food that was left out overnight. One neighbor offers to shoot it. Another one suggests calling the game warden to have the bear tranquilized and relocated. But the child among them knows what is best. A bear belongs in the woods, he says, and together with the adults clears the yards in the neighborhood of any food that would tempt the bear. His dad comes up with a good idea for warning the bear away--and it works!

Stone Wall Secrets

What can rocks in old stone walls tell us about how the earth's crust was shaped, melted by volcanoes, carved by glaciers, and weathered by the elements? And what can they tell us about earlier people on the land? As Adam and his grandfather work to repair the family farm's old stone walls, Adam learns how fascinating geology can be, and how a landscape provides clues to the past.
