|Looking at Lincoln by Maira Kalman|
Abraham Lincoln was an unforgettable man. Look,
there he is on your five dollar bill and on your pennies. And
when you see a tall hat,who but Abe Lincoln comes to mind?
And our country is still the UNITED States because he helped
hold it together. But who was he REALLY?
|First Girl Scout by Ginger Wadsworth|
When Juliette Gordon was growing up in the late 1800's, she
climbed tees, swam in rivers, and hiked on tall cliffs. With
her cousins and friends, she sewed costumes and put on plays,
sketched and painted, and reached out to help other kids who were less fortunate.
Juliette - or Daisy, as her friends and family called her - knew that most
girls her age weren't so lucky: they didn't have the opportunities to
play, create, and enjoy outdoor activities the way she did. And when
Daisy became an adult, she set out to do something to change that.
Juliette (Daisy) Gordon Low made history by founding the first
national organization to bring girls from all backgrounds into the out-of-doors..
the Girl Scouts of the USA...
|North: the amazing story of Arctic migration by Nick Dowson|
Come along on an extraordinary wildlife adventure!
Every spring, millions of animals, including gray whales,
white cranes, wolves, and caribou, set off from around the world on a long
journey north. Follow them as they fly, swim, or walk hundreds-
even thousands-of miles to the Arctic, where they'll feed and breed all summer.
