Do you think history is boring, well, think again! This book gives an up-close and personal look at the events and participants of America's independence from Britain. The account starts out with a description of the 13 steps King George took that actually made the Patriots to want independence. Certainly, not what he had in mind. The author includes extensive quotes from all the participants of the era, including this one from George Washington after the defeat of Cornwallis at Yorktown, 'We have got him handsomely in a pudding bag.' There is a section in the back called 'Whatever happened to...?' that gives a brief paragraph of each participant's life after the war. The next time you need to do a report on the American Revolution, consider this book as one of your resources.

Lemmings

Ann O. Squire (2007), 47 pages
Audience: 2nd Grade - 3rd Grade
Category: Animal, Nonfiction

Lemmings are the smallest mammals in the arctic, measuring only about 5 inches. Since they only live in the arctic regions, the lemmings have adapted to their environment in many ways. Some Lemmings lose the full coat in fall and re-grow a white coat to protect them for predators during the winter months. The Collared Lemming actually grows longer nails for winter to be used to help forage for food. Find out more by reading this book.
