Houghton Mifflin Courage

What is courage? Certainly it takes courage for a firefighter to rescue someone trapped in a burning building, but there are many other kinds of courage too. Everyday kinds that normal, ordinary people exhibit all the time, like ?being the ...first to make up after an argument,? or ?going to bed without a nightlight.? Bernard Waber explores the many varied kinds of courage and celebrates the moments, big and small, that bring out the hero in each of us.

Follow scientists as they scan the Alaskan wilderness for these magnificent creatures. It is springtime on the North Slope of Alas...ka, and the U.S. Geological Survey team?the polar bear biologists Kristin Simac and Mike Lockhart?is gearing up for polar bear capturing. During a capture, all information is collected on the sea ice. The scientists locate bears from a helicopter, tranquilize them, give them tattoo ID numbers and tags, and collect data such as height, weight, and body fat measurements and samples such as blood, hair, feces, and even teeth. All this information goes into a large database studied by scientists such as Drs. Steven Amstrup and George Durner, the former and current leaders of the Polar Bear Research Project. For more than forty years, scientists have been capturing bears in order to get information. What has this information been telling scientists about polar bears and global warming?

Looking Back: A Book of Memories I would like to introduce you to this book. It has no plot. It is about moments, memories, fragme...nts, falsehoods, and fantasies. It is about things that happened, which caused other things to happen, so that eventually stories emerged. Children as well as adults often ask Lois Lowry where the ideas for her stories came from. In this fascinating, moving autobiography, the Newbery Medalist answers this and many other questions. Her writing often transports readers into her own world. She explores her rich history through family pictures, memories, and recollections of childhood friends. She details pivotal moments that affected her life, inspired her writing, and that magically evolved into rich and wonderful stories that one is reluctant to put down. Lowry fans, and anyone interested in the writing process, will tremendously enjoy this poignant trip through a remarkable writers past.

If You Lived Here: Houses of the World Step into unique homes from around the world and discover the many fascinating ways in whic...h people live and have lived. If you lived in the mountains of southern Spain, your bedroom might be carved out of a mountain.

People call it ?The Ghost of the Mountain,? for those who live among snow leopards almost never see one. Beautiful spotted coats c...onceal these elusive cats in their rocky, high-altitude habitat?a place where temperatures are often cold enough to freeze human tears. A thick, long tail for balance helps snow leopards spring at their prey from great distances?prey that is often three times its own size. Slinking along the Mongolian mountain ridges, the snow leopards are invisible?and almost impossible to study. But that doesn?t deter scientist Tom McCarthy, Conservation Director of the Seattle-based Snow Leopard Trust, or his many colleagues from dedicating their lives? work to the study and protection of this seldom-seen creature. And it doesn?t stop Sy Montgomery and Nic Bishop from packing their bags in order to join Tom on a trek to Mongolia, where they hope to learn more about this magical cat, a cat who doesn?t give up its secrets easily. It will take endurance and persistence to climb the dusty mountain trails, hope of a snow leopard sighting rising and falling with each new summit. It will take practice and experience to lay humane leghold snares, collect scat samples, and set up motion-triggered cameras. It will take patience, focus?and yes, love?to dedicate a lifetime learning more about this little-understood creature. But that?s the only way the Snow Leopard Trust can protect their charges, before the snow leopard truly becomes nothing but a ghost of the mountain. With a dazzling, as-it-happens narrative and spectacular photographs, Sy Montgomery and Nic Bishop bring Mongolia up close for readers everywhere.

Pokemon Black and White Takaratomy M Figure - M-136 - Jolteon/Thunders Jolteon/Thunders, known as the Lightning Pokemon, is one of... the evolutions of Eevee that is caused by radiation from a Thunderstone. Jolteon is covered with spiky, bright yellow fur, with white spiky fur surrounding its neck. Its fur sparks with electricity constantly; it can be soft to the touch or turn into sharp needles that can be fired when it is angered. Jolteon is able to gather negative ions from the atmosphere, using the resulting electricity to create lightning bolts of up to 10,000 volts. Its individual cells also create small electrical charges on their own, which can result in powerful electric-type attacks. It is very sensitive, which causes it to constantly charge as it quickly changes moods. Recommended Ages:3 ? 15 Dimensions: 2in length x 2in width x 2in height Weight: 0.07lb Read More
