Building Character

Building Character

Tell the truth. Say please and thank you. Do your chores. These are just a few ways to show and build good character. In these inspiring and engaging titles, young readers will learn more about positive character traits and how to implement them in their daily lives. Carefully levelled text and vibrant, color photos support beginning readers and make reading informational text easy and fun.• SLJ Apr 2018 - "Social emotional learning is a broad topic to introduce, yet this series does so succinctly. The information presented is plain and straightforward, defining what it means to be kind or generous, how to show responsibility or honesty, and how to handle a bully and persevere. The notion that life can be hard, or that someone can be mean, might be difficult for younger child to comprehend, but the short examples given, such as finishing a race even when it appears that you won't win, offer the ability to discuss the texts for meaning."

Man-Made Disasters

Man-Made Disasters

From crossing vast oceans to exploring outer space, we continue to push the limits of our scientific and engineering capabilities. But what happens when our pursuits don't go as planned? What are the consequences, and how can we learn from these engineering mistakes? This series explores the science behind some of history's most catastrophic man-made disasters, from the crash of the Hindenburg to the explosion at Chernobyl. Early fluent readers will gain practice reading engaging informational text. • SLJ Apr 2018 - "The authors recount the tragic circumstances of a number of devastating events in simple, straightforward language. Readers learn how the cold weather affected the rockets on the Challenger and that laws requiring more lifeboats were made after the Titanic sank. The books are easy to read, if not overly engaging. The images are a mix of stock and archival photographs, with most about a page in size."

When I Grow Up. . .

When I Grow Up. . .

What do you want to be when you grow up? This series invites children to imagine, learn, and pretend what jobs are like and the many possibilities they can choose from when they grow up. Young readers will enjoy learning about community helpers in this popular series. • SLJ Nov 2016 - "Expanding on the age old question "What do you want to be when you grow up?" this series employs cartoon drawings to explore the career-related imaginings of a child (e.g., what it would be like to play a violin solo for a concert performance, or find a T. rex bone on an archeological dig). Baroncelli's illustrations depict a diverse group of cheerful children as they turn sandbox play into a dinosaur dig, or a collection of stuffed animals into a veterinary office. "

Considered by most to be one of the greatest painters of the twentieth century, Edward Hopper's work can be found in almost every major museum, and his familiar urban images permeate pop culture in advertisements and on film. Best known for his oil paintings, the New York artist incorporated elements of both the Ashcan and the Impressionist schools of art to create his own, unique style. His favorite theme-the isolation of the individual within America's rapidly progressing society-appears throughout his work, made all the more poignant by his original, realistic technique.

Bert D. Yaeger

During a fifty-year period, an artistic movement developed in America that was based on Romanticism and inspired by the wild areas in the vicinity of New York's Hudson River. The first native American school of landscape painting included artists Thomas Cole, Asher Brown Durand, and Thomas Doughty as well as Frederic Church, Thomas Moran, and Albert Bierstadt. While most of these artists did not think of themselves as belonging to a movement, they did share a sense of wonder at the grandeur of the New World's remarkable scenic wilderness.

Mary Cassatt: An American Impressionist 9781422241622 $35.64 $24.95

Gerhard Gruitrooy

American-born painter Mary Cassatt grew up in Pennsylvania but spent the better part of her life and career in France, yet that did not prevent her from gaining a preeminent position among artists in the United States. At the height of her career, she focused almost exclusively on depictions of mothers and children, a subject that became her signature theme. By the outbreak of World War I, Cassatt had to give up painting entirely due to failing eyesight, but she preserved her original enthusiasm and devotion to art until the end of her life.

Crimes committed against people because of their race, ethnicity, or religion have become common in the United States and other countries-in 2016, the FBI said more than six thousand such crimes were committed in America. Hate crimes can range from small acts of vandalism to horrific mass shootings, such as the 2015 murders of nine African Americans attending church services in Charleston, South Carolina. Although many laws have been written to prevent hate crimes, experts agree such offenses will never go away as long as people harbour prejudices against others.

During the 20th century, communism was one of the world's dominant forms of government. During the late 1980s, communist regimes held power across much of Asia, Eastern Europe, and parts of Africa.

Democracy: the People's Government 9781422240168 $37.07 $25.95

Denice Butler

Today, the basic ideas underpinning democracy-that government exists for the benefit of the people, and that it must have their consent to be legitimate-may seem obvious. Even dictators pay lip service to these ideas. But the logic of democracy hasn't always been widely accepted. In fact, throughout most of recorded history, nearly all rulers claimed absolute authority. This book traces the long evolution of government 'by the people', from its roots in the ancient world to the present day.

Fascism: Radical Nationalism 9781422240199 $37.07 $25.95

Sam Portus

In the turbulent years after World War I, a new type of governing philosophy known as fascism emerged in a handful of countries-most notably in Italy under Benito Mussolini and in Germany under Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party. Fascism denied that individuals had any rights the state was bound to respect. It demanded that citizens blindly obey their leader. It glorified violence. It promised to purify a degraded culture and restore the nation to greatness. Fascism led to some of the darkest episodes in human history-including the Holocaust and the Second World War. This book details the rise and fall of a discredited form of government.
