Nonfiction

Named MVP in 2005, today he is one of most feared hitters in baseball, helping lead the Cardinals to a World Series Championship in 2006. His story will inspire you.

Little Red Riding Hood by Jerry Pinkney - An old-fashioned version richly imagined by Caldecott Honor winner Pinkney, the story proceeds in much the same way with Little Red disobediently chatting with a sly, cunning yet charming wolf. The highlight of these delightful illustrations features the wolf sneaking in the door, resplendent in Grandma's nightgown and cap.

Nightwatch: A Practical Guide to Viewing the Universe by Terence Dickinson - The revised and updated 4th edition is user friendly and cited as the best introduction to stargazing. The guide includes star charts, equipment reviews, astrophotography, tables and references that will remain current until 2018.

Penguins of the World by Wayne Lynch - Penguins are birds, but cannot fly, and they spend 75% of their lives in water. Penguin chicks beg for food from any passing adult, rather like human teens! Filled with great photos, check out the fairy penguins which are 16" tall.

The Everglades by Wayne Lynch - Perfect for homework assignments or armchair travelers, this close-up look at the flora and fauna is like a trip to the Everglades without the mosquitoes. Meet the amazing Thorn Bugs who carry their defense system, a thorn, on their back, very discouraging to hungry birds.
