The Legend of Sea Glass9781585366118$22.50$18.00

Noble, Trinka Hakes

Long, long ago there was a time when men did not venture into the deep ocean waters. It was believed that the world was flat and to sail beyond the horizon meant falling off the edge of the earth. So even though they were drawn to and fascinated by the ocean, men feared it. And as men lived their lives above the water, far beyond their view and in the ocean's deepest depths lived mysterious and magical sea creatures, half girl and half fish. These shy, gentle creatures were called mermaids and much loved by the ocean. And when men finally overcame their fear and ventured out to sea, risking disaster and even death, it was the mermaids who came to their rescue.

In My Backyard

In My Backyard

When you gaze out your windows, do you ever see a squirrel flicking its tail? How about a robin with a worm dangling from its beak? The animals in our neighbourhoods may be obvious or rarely seen, but they live among us and contribute to each microhabitat. In My Backyard takes a closer look at six common creatures, exploring their life cycles and habits and noting their typical interactions with human neighbours. An activity at the end of each book encourages creative expression and critical thinking as the reader is invited to further explore a key idea presented in the text.

Harvey, Sarah N.

Harriet (known as Harry) is a donor-conceived child who has never wanted to reach out to her half-siblings or donor until now. Feeling adrift after a breakup with her long-time boyfriend, Harry tracks down her half-siblings, two of whom are in Seattle, where Harriet lives. The first girl she meets is fifteen-year-old Lucy, an effervescent half-Japanese dancer. Then she meets Meredith, a troubled girl who is always accompanied by her best friend, Alex. Harry and Alex are attracted to each other, much to Meredith's chagrin, and when it becomes clear that Meredith is an accomplished liar, Harry makes it her business to figure out what Meredith is up to. In the course of her investigation, she discovers a lot about Meredith, but the biggest shock is not about Meredith it's about Alex, who was born female. So now Harry must deal with not only her growing attraction to Alex, but also Meredith's hostility.

Plants vs. Meats: The Health, History, and Ethics of What We Eat9781467780117$37.15$29.72

Meredith Sayles Hughes

In addition to health concerns, people make food choices for ethical and religious reasons. Some ancient religions asserted that killing animals was wrong, a belief that persists among modern vegetarians and vegans. Some twenty-first-century consumers shun meat from factory farms-where animals are crowded into stalls and fattened up with antibiotics and hormones. An increasing number of people seek out foods grown locally, especially those raised without chemical pesticides, using agricultural methods that keep the soil healthy and do not waste water. As Earth's population grows, chefs, nutritionists, and scientists are considering how to feed the world. The future of food includes insect-based foods, 3-D-printed meals, and crops that cangrow inside buildings. What do you choose to eat and why? This book will help you make decisions to support your values.

Ebola Epidemic, The: The Fight, The Future9781467792448$38.60$30.88

ConnieGoldsmith

Ebola has riveted-and terrified-the world since its reemergence from the jungle, killing more than eleven thousand people in West Africa since December 2013. Transmitted through bodily fluids, blood, saliva, sweat, vomit, feces, and semen-the disease causes high fever, widespread pain, nausea and vomiting, and severe diarrhea. Patients may develop dangerous bleeding and organ failure. With no effective treatment available, about 40 percent of infected people die within days. Using proper protective gear, safe burial protocols, cleansing techniques, and educational outreach, the disease has been slowed in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone-at least temporarily.

Disease in History9781601529602$42.80$34.24

Bruno Leone

Disease in History describes several of the epidemics that have significantly influenced historical events. It explains how the discovery of germs in the last two centuries was able to reverse millenia of superstition and ignorance in the treatment of infectious diseases. Finally, it explains how and why the world of microbial organisms has been able to thwart many of medical science's greatest efforts to eliminate, or, at the very least, control them.

Creation Stories in Greek Mythology9781601529589$42.80$34.24

Don Nardo

Like peoples throughout history, the ancient Greeks maintained largely fanciful stories about how the world, animals, and humans came to be. At the core of those tales were descriptions of the origins of the gods. Unlike many societies, which envisioned gods fashioning the universe, the Greeks held that the universe came first and gave birth to the gods.

Gods and Goddesses in Greek Mythology9781601529640$42.80$34.24

Don Nardo

The ancient Greeks believed that all of nature was alive with intelligent beings, each of whom controlled his or her special niche of the sky, land masses, or seas. Moreover, unlike the perfect supreme being envisioned by Jews, Christians, and Muslims, the Greeks viewed their gods as extremely powerful, yes, yet also flawed. Like people, those colourful, often amusing deities made mistakes, cheated on their spouses, and fought among themselves.

Don Nardo

At the very core of ancient Greek mythology dwelled the epic heroùmost often a man but on occasion a womanùwho was a larger-than-life figure blessed with extraordinary abilities, including superhuman strength, courage, and/or cunning. Such talents allowed a hero to do things that ordinary humans could not. These deeds included overthrowing tyrants, killing monsters, and fighting injustice.

The ancient Greeks were seemingly obsessed by stories involving hideous, dangerous monsters. Modern experts think that tales of blood-thirsty dragons, one-eyed giants, and other scary creatures may have served a social purpose. Namely people needed to recognize and accept the existence of ugliness and evil in order to properly appreciate concepts like beauty and goodness.

Ancient Greek mythology is riddled with tales about natural phenomena. Among them are those that explain how the sun, stars, and other heavenly bodies supposedly came to be. Other myths dealt with the weather, including thunder, lightning, storms, and rainbows.

Laughter is fifteen-year-old Paige Larsson's currency in life. It takes the sting out of life's tough stuff. It eases the pain of nasty comments, agonizing moments in gym class and awkward pauses at parties. She likes it even more when others laugh with her, so she's become a YouTube comedy vlogger. Now Paige is about to step out of her comfort zone and compete; live and onstage; in the prestigious International Teens in Comedy festival. Winning will give her the opportunity to work with some of the biggest names in comedy. It'll also mean $10,000 for her school's performing-arts department. But Paige has always used her humour to mask the pain of a disability, and in the world of stand-up comedy, that won't cut it anymore.

Max and his best friend, Dallas, escape the treatment, but must pretend to be "zombies" while they watch their freedoms and hopes decay.
