A lively text and captivating images tell the story of the ever-curious boy who grew up to make one of the most significant discov...eries of our time. From the time Charles Darwin was a boy, he was happiest when he was out alone collecting specimens (especially beetles). And despite his fathers efforts to turn young Darwin ? a poor student ? into a doctor or clergyman, the born naturalist jumped instead at the chance to sail around South America, observing and collecting flora and fauna all the way. In a clear, engaging narration, Kathryn Lasky takes readers along on Darwins journey, from his discovery of seashells on mountaintops that revealed geological changes to his observations of variations in plants and animals, suggesting that all living things are evolving over time. Matthew Truemans striking mixed-media illustrations include actual objects found in nature, enhancing this compelling look at the man behind the bold theory that would change the way we think about the world ? and ourselves.

An excellent account of the many ways in which slaves participated in bringing down the greatest evil in our nations history. - KI...RKUS REVIEWS (starred review) A man who cannot swim leaps off a slave ship into the dark water. A girl defies the law by secretly learning to read and write. A future abolitionist regains his will to live by fighting off his captor with his bare hands: I will not let you use me like a brute any longer, Frederick Douglass vows. Drawing from authentic accounts, here is a chronology of resistance in all its forms: comical trickster tales about outwitting Old Marsa; secret hush harbors where Africans instill Christian worship with their own rituals; and spirituals such as Go Down Moses, whose coded lyrics signal not just hope for deliverance, but an active call to escape. Boldly illustrated with extraordinary oil paintings by award-winning artist Shane W. Evans, and meticulously researched by Doreen Rappaport, this stunning collection - spanning the period from the early days of slavery to the Emancipation Proclamation - is an invaluable resource for teachers, parents, libraries, students, and people everywhere who care about what it means to be free, what it is to be human.

They became America?s first black paratroopers. Why was their story never told? Sibert Medalist Tanya Lee Stone reveals the histor...y of the Triple Nickles during World War II. World War II is raging, and thousands of American soldiers are fighting overseas against the injustices brought on by Hitler. Back on the home front, the injustice of discrimination against African Americans plays out as much on Main Street as in the military. Enlisted black men are segregated from white soldiers and regularly relegated to service duties. At Fort Benning, Georgia, First Sergeant Walter Morris?s men serve as guards at The Parachute School, while the white soldiers prepare to be paratroopers. Morris knows that for his men to be treated like soldiers, they have to train and act like them, but would the military elite and politicians recognize the potential of these men as well as their passion for serving their country? Tanya Lee Stone examines the role of African Americans in the military through the history of the Triple Nickles, America?s first black paratroopers, who fought in a little-known attack on the American West by the Japanese. The 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion, in the words of Morris, proved that the color of a man had nothing to do with his ability. From Courage Has No Color What did it take to be a paratrooper in World War II? Specialized training, extreme physical fitness, courage, and ? until the 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion (the Triple Nickles) was formed ? white skin. It is 1943. Americans are overseas fighting World War II to help keep the world safe from Adolf Hitler?s tyranny, safe from injustice, safe from discrimination. Yet right here at home, people with white skin have rights that people with black skin do not. What is courage? What is strength? Perhaps it is being ready to fight for your nation even when your nation isn?t ready to fight for you.

Jolteon is covered with spiky, bright yellow fur, with white spiky fur surrounding its neck.

Its individual cells also create small electrical charges on their own, which can result in powerful electric-type attacks.
