The Brooklyn Bridge, the iconic suspension bridge that connects Manhattan and Brooklyn, was completed in 1883. It is thanks to Emily Warren Roebling that the bridge was finished at all. Emily was not an engineer, but she was educated in math and science. She married Washington Roebling, the chief engineer of the famous bridge. When Washington became ill from decompression sickness, Emily stepped in, doing everything from keeping the books, to carrying messages for her husband, to monitoring the construction of the bridge. She was the first person to cross the Brooklyn Bridge when it opened. Emily, who went on to study law among many other accomplishments, is an inspiration to all, as demonstrated through Frieda Wishinsky's informative and engaging text and Natalie Nelson's distinctive collage illustrations. Speech bubbles revealing imagined dialogue add a playful note to this historical account, which includes fascinating facts about the Brooklyn Bridge and a further reading list.

The story of Olmsted who designed some of North America’s most famous public spaces When the great cities of North America were being built, little thought was given to the idea of creating “green spaces.” But these oases from the dirt, gravel, and noise of the crowded city streets were exactly what were needed. One of the few people to recognize this fact was Frederick Law Olmsted, North America’s first landscape architect. Combining his love of nature with his admiration for the structured beauty found in the great public parks of London and Paris, Olmsted turned neglected, swampy acres on the edge of New York City into one of the most acclaimed parks in the world: Central Park. But Olmsted’s success was not earned overnight. He spent many years wandering from job to job, searching for the perfect career. And when he finally discovered his passion, few people were confident in his abilities. But Olmsted fought for the preservation of areas like Yosemite in the USA, and his perseverance would be rewarded: he went on to design some of the most famous public spaces in North America.

The world knows Albert Einstein as one of the greatest thinkers and scientists of all time. What's the Matter with Albert? introduces young readers to the life and character of this famous figure, telling his story from childhood through to the end of his life. Seen through the eyes of a young boy sent to interview him for the school paper, Einstein vividly comes to life in these pages. The immediacy and gentle humor of Frieda Wishinsky's writing humanizes the subject. Not only do readers learn of the amazing accomplishments of a Nobel-prize-winning scientist, but they also find out that Albert Einstein was slow to learn to talk, sometimes temperamental, and a poor student. From his childhood and through to his great scientific achievements and work for peace in his adult life, a full portrait emerges. This magical meeting will resonate with young readers, introducing them to Einstein the person, as well as Einstein the great scientist and teacher. Jacques Lamontagne's richly evocative artwork, based on archival photographs, transports the reader back in time to the periods and places where Einstein lived and grew up. The introduction, Who Was Albert Einstein? helps give a clear understanding of the incredible impact of Albert Einstein's ideas, which revolutionized the way we see the world. A straightforward chronology at the end of the book rounds out Einstein's story, highlighting the important events in his life and giving a comprehensive summary of his achievements.

In Where Are You, Bear?, Sophie and her best friend Bear discovered Canada from A to Z. Now, they’re off to explore New York City through nearly twenty pairs of opposites!  Sophie can’t wait to see New York, while Bear would much rather they just stay home. Sophie loves speeding around in a taxi cab, but Bear wishes the driver would slow down. Up and down, stop and go, tall and short, and many more opposite pairs are illustrated using iconic New York experiences, buildings, and landmarks. Then, when Sophie spies a window full of new bears in a toy store, Bear begins to worry he is too plain and old to compete with all the city has to offer. He’s proven right temporarily when Sophie forgets him in the toy store, but a helpful young boy and his mother find Bear and return him to Sophie at her hotel. The reunion is a happy one, and Sophie and Bear realize they love each other — no matter where they are!

Four-year-old Sophie is about to leave her home in Newfoundland on a cross-Canada trip with her dad to visit her grandma in British Columbia. She’s so excited, except for one little problem — she can’t find Bear anywhere! Forced to leave Bear behind, Sophie sets out to travel across the country without her beloved companion. But when Bear emerges from under the bed and finds Sophie gone, he sets off on his own adventure — chasing after Sophie! The cat-and-mouse, or rather bear-and-girl, game that ensues is a madcap ABC adventure that takes the separated pals through all 13 provinces and territories. Some of the unique places that Sophie and Bear visit include: Cape Spear Lighthouse in Newfoundland, the Notre-Dame Basilica in Québec, the Toronto Island Ferry in Ontario, and Canada Olympic Park in Alberta. Along the way, they encounter many more of the iconic animals, people, sights, sounds, and tastes of Canada. From a bowl of chowder in Nova Scotia to a polar bear in Nunavut, the whole country is in on the trip!
