Kindergarrrten Bus 9781585363988 $22.95 $18.36

Ornstein, Mike

Yo ho ho! It's the first day of kindergarten. Just imagine all the fun things to learn and experience! And who better than a pirate captain to drive the bus to school? He's ready to share all the rules one needs to know to ride the bus and to get along with mates at school. But with the anticipation of the first day of school there also comes a bit of anxiety. And it turns out that being a big, blustery pirate captain is no guarantee against feeling insecure and a little frightened in strange and uncomfortable situations. Who can help a rough and tough pirate captain get over his fears and back to driving the school bus? Using humour and pirate-speak, Kindergarrrten Bus addresses some of the concerns and anxiety that many children feel on their first day of school or at the start of any new undertaking.

Leadership Skills & Character

Leadership Skills & Character

This series explodes the myth that leadership can't be taught. In fact, everyone can teach themselves leadership skills if they put their mind to it, and the sooner students understand the qualities of their own character, the sooner they can make positive changes. Each book in the series guides young readers as they explore the importance of grit, communications skills, cooperation, problem solving, integrity, self-confidence, and more. Parents and schools often emphasize the importance of academic achievement, but success in life also requires good social skills. This series encourages students to develop a broad set of such skills, including creativity, initiative, perseverance, tolerance, a sense of responsibility, and self-discipline, and to put these skills into practice.

Debating History

Debating History

With the passage of time, the controversies that shaped historic events sometimes fade. The Debating History series focuses on those controversies as a way to gain a fuller understanding of history. Chapters are organized in pro/con format, in which a single author synthesizes arguments for and against a particular issue. Some of these essays are written from the point of view of someone who lived during the period; others are examined from a more current perspective. In all cases, important ideas are supported by relevant facts, quotes, and examples. Focus questions at the beginning of each essay provide added critical thinking exercises for students.

Last Night at the Circle Cinema 9781512481785 $14.30 $11.44

Emily Franklin

Olivia, Bertucci, and Codman were the trio no one else in high school could quite figure out, an impenetrable triangle of friendship. Now they're graduating and about to start new lives away at college and without one another. Beyond their friendship, there's one thing they have in common: the Circle Cinema, a once-thriving old movie theater now reduced to a boarded up concrete box, condemned and about to be forgotten forever-which is, as far as Olivia and Codman can tell, a lot like what's going to happen to them. Bertucci hatches a plan-an experiment, really. He convinces Olivia and Codman to join him in spending their last night before graduation locked inside the cinema's concrete walls. None of them can open the box before sunrise. Over the course of the night, the trio is then forced to face one another, the events of the past year, and whatever is to come when the new day dawns.

In an unassuming corner of Brooklyn, a young woman learns to be ladylike, to love context, and to speak her mind from a very curious sort of tutor. In a faraway land convulsed by war, a young soldier hears the desert's curious hum as he disarms bombs with the person he doesn't know how to love. In a place so shrivelled by drought that any drowning is a curiosity, a young writer tries again and again to tread water beneath the surface of a vast and unusual sea. Three stories--complete with commentary on the creative process--from three acclaimed young adult authors working at the height of their powers.
