Farrar, Straus & Giroux How I Learned Geography

Having fled from war in their troubled homeland, a boy and his family are living in poverty in a strange country. Food is scarce, so when the boy?s father brings home a map instead of bread for supper, at first the boy is furious. But when ...the map is hung on the wall, it floods their cheerless room with color. As the boy studies its every detail, he is transported to exotic places without ever leaving the room, and he eventually comes to realize that the map feeds him in a way that bread never could. The award-winning artist?s most personal work to date is based on his childhood memories of World War II and features stunning illustrations that celebrate the power of imagination. An author?s note includes a brief description of his family?s experience, two of his early drawings, and the only surviving photograph of himself from that time. How I Learned Geography is a 2009 Caldecott Honor Book and a 2009 Bank Street - Best Childrens Book of the Year.

In this brilliant presentation of a revolutionary thinkers life, the picture book becomes an art form As far as I can judge, I am ...not apt to follow blindly the lead of other men . . . Charles Darwin was, above all else, an independent thinker who continues even now to influence the way we look at the natural world. His endless curiosity and passion for detail resulted in a wealth of notebooks, diaries, correspondence, and published writings that Peter Sís transforms into a visual treasure trove. A multilayered journey through Darwin?s world, The Tree of Life begins with his childhood and traces the arc of his life through university and career, following him around the globe on the voyage of the Beagle, and home to a quiet but momentous life devoted to science and family. Sís uses his own singular vision to create a gloriously detailed panorama of a genius?s trajectory through investigating and understanding the mysteries of nature. In pictures executed in fine pen and ink and lush watercolors ? cameo portraits, illustrated pages of diary, cutaway views of the Beagle, as well as charts, maps, and a gatefold spread ? Peter Sís has shaped a wondrous introduction to Charles Darwin. The Tree of Life is a 2003 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year and Notable Childrens Book of the Year, and a 2004 Bank Street - Best Childrens Book of the Year.

Pero llegará el día, mucho después de que Boris haya vuelto a su vida balleneante y Amos a su vida ratoneante, en que el pequeño ratón deba buscar una forma de socorrer a la gran ballena.

A look into a unique ecosystem, one that is endangered in many places A seed is jostled from a branch of a mangrove tree and float...s to a lagoon in the Caribbean Sea. It takes root, sprouts leaves, and slowly begins to grow. Over many years, the mangrove will provide a home and nourishment for numerous creatures of land and sea. Among its roots come to live fiddler crabs and shrimp; in its branches dwell lizards and hummingbirds. Soon the tree is dropping seeds of its own, and other mangroves are growing, creating a tangle whose benefits extend even to large mammals like dolphins and manatees. There are endpaper maps that indicate where mangroves are located and the names of common animals and plants found in them. Ever threatened by hurricanes and even more by human destruction, the mangroves of our planet are endangered, but in Lynne Cherrys richly illustrated story one such habitat survives, giving readers hope and inspiration for preservation of these ecosystems in the real world.
