One World, One Day uses exquisite, moving photographs and Barbara Kerley’s poetic text to convey a simple yet profound concept: we are one global family. This is a sophisticated concept book, presented as an elegant picture book with contributions from top international photographers. This beautiful photo book follows the course of one day in our world. Sunrise to sunset is captured in the essential things we all do daily, wherever we live in the world, and in the different ways we do them. The first meal of the day will take on a whole new dimension for American kids as an American pancake breakfast is contrasted with porridge in North Korea and churros in Spain. At the end, each image is reprinted as a thumbnail and accompanied by a detailed caption. Selected images feature photographers’ notes that share the thoughts and methodology involved in the making of the picture and reveal fascinating behind-the-scenes information. The photographers reflect on how the pictures might resonate within the theme of the global family. Such reflections are rooted in the life experiences of these well-traveled professionals. Their global viewpoints, in tandem with Barbara Kerley’s powerful message, set an ideal example for all future world citizens.

From a Sibert Medalist comes the epic story of Manhattan--a magical, maddening island "for all" and a microcosm of America. A veteran nonfiction storyteller dives deep into the four-hundred-year history of Manhattan to map the island's unexpected intersections. Focusing on the evolution of four streets and a square (Wall Street, 42nd Street, West 4th Street, 125th Street, and Union Square) Marc Aronson explores how new ideas and forms of art evolved from social blending. Centuries of conflict--among original Americans and Europeans, slavers and the enslaved, rich and poor, immigrants and native-born--produced segregation, oppression, and violence, but also new ways of speaking, singing, and being American. From the Harlem Renaissance to Hammerstein, from gay pride in the Village to political clashes at Tammany Hall, this clear-eyed pageant of the island's joys and struggles--enhanced with photos and drawings, multimedia links to music and film, and an extensive bibliography and source notes--is, above all, a love song to Manhattan's triumphs.

ABC'S OF CONTINENTS

Some of the topics covered in this book are bodies of water, the equator, poles, and hemispheres, latitude and longitude, urban and rural areas, landforms, extreme continents, and many more. This book certainly shows a different and fun way to study this important curriculum topic! From School Library Journal: Kindergarten-Grade 4—These titles vary in their usefulness and complexity. Consistency is a problem. In Continents, seven places are named at the beginning under "The 'A' Continents" when only six begin with that letter, and the "Q" entry is "Quartz," which is a bit specific for a book on this topic. Similarly, the first chapter of Animals is "Animals in Danger," but "Rhinoceros" represents "R." In all of the titles, specific names of things, insects, continents, or animals are mixed with generalized categories like "Habitat loss," for "H" in Environment. The books are visually appealing, with color photos on every page, and include a variety of children, animals, and natural environments. They might expose children to new words and curious creatures, but they're strictly additional purchases.—Erlene Bishop Killeen, Stroughton Area School District, WI END "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.

Discover the exhilarating diversity of the African continent in storyteller Atinuke's kaleidoscopic nonfiction guide to the people, flora, and fauna of all fifty-five countries. A Nigerian storyteller explores the continent of Africa country by country: its geography, peoples, animals, history, resources, and cultural diversity. The book is divided into five distinct sections--South, East, West, Central, and North--and each country is showcased on its own bright, energetic page brimming with friendly facts on science, industry, food, sports, music, wildlife, landscape features, even snippets of local languages. The richest king, the tallest sand dunes, and the planet's largest waterfall all make appearances along with drummers, cocoa growers, inventors, balancing stones, salt lakes, high-tech cities, and nomads who use GPS! Atinuke's lively and comprehensive introduction to all fifty-five African countries--a celebration scaled to dazzle and delight even very young readers--evokes the continent's unique blend of modern and traditional. Complete with colorful maps, an index, and richly patterned and textured illustrations by debut children's book artist Mouni Feddag, Africa, Amazing Africa is both a beautiful gift book and an essential classroom and social studies resource.
