Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
At a Holocaust education center in Japan, the director creates a display of personal items from Holocaust victims. A suitcase with the name Hana Brady written on it grabs the attention of the director and children who see the display. Who was Hana Brady and what happened to her? The director follows many clues to answer these questions. The book is written in chapters that alternate between Hana's story and the search for answers to the mystery that begins with only a suitcase and a name. Though overall the story is sad, there is a surprisingly positive ending.

When you visit a butterfly house at a zoo or museum, have you ever wondered where the butterflies came from? How they got there? This book explains how a farm in Costa Rica raises butterflies from capturing adults in the rain forest, caring for the eggs and then the caterpillars in greenhouses and then, carefully shipping live pupae to museums and zoos around the world. The photographs are vivid and fascinating.

This book chronicles the life of Helen Keller in a simple yet amazing way with life-like illustrations. Helen developed an illness when she was nineteen months old that left her deaf and blind. With the help of her amazing teacher Annie Sullivan, Helen learned how to finger spell, read Braille, and navigate her life without sight or hearing. Beautiful quotations from Helen are on the bottom of each page spread. My favorite quote is, 'The chief handicap of the blind is not blindness, but the attitude of seeing people toward them.'
