    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.

Biologist Stephen Kress decided to try to bring puffins back to Maine with an experiment that had never been attempted before.

    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.

Resources at the end of the book will help parents and children talk about teasing and bullying and find ways to stop it at school.

    , , , , , , ,
    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?
