Rubia and the Three Osos

Susan Middleton Elya (2010), 40 pages
Illustrated by Melissa Sweet
Audience: Preschool - 1st Grade
Category: Folklore, Nonfiction

This retelling of Goldilocks and the Three Bears is written in rhyme with a smattering of Spanish words throughout the story that are highlighted and bolded. Something unique is that the English meaning isn't provided with the Spanish words. There is, however, a glossary included at the back. This would be a fun book to have in a bilingual class.

If you ever wanted to know a little more about each of the Presidents of the United States, and wanted to get your knowledge in rhyme, this is the book for you! Each page gives the President's name, party, dates in office, and a snappy poem that briefly describes their time in the White House. If that weren't enough, dynamite illustrations of each President in his prime official state (picture Theodore Roosevelt charging full steam ahead, saber above his head, upon a white steed) and some even feature a notable quotable by the featured man in office. Once you're done with the main fun, you can read more about the job of the President, mini biographies and quotations of each President, and a list of sources to explore. Never forget which president comes after Harrison again!

Sachiko: A Nagasaki Bomb Survivor's Story

Caren Stelson (2016), 144 pages
Audience: 6th Grade - 8th Grade
Category: Biography, Nonfiction
Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
August 9th, 1945 began with a bad omen. The family of 6-year-old Sachiko had a hen. Every morning Sachiko's mother would collect one egg from the nest and cook it for Toshi, the baby of the family. But that morning there was no egg. Years later, she always began the story of that morning in Nagasaki, Japan with that missing egg. Toshi was never given another. Two hours later, U.S. forces dropped an atomic bomb on the city. Every living thing within a .5 mile radius of the bomb's hypercenter was instantly destroyed. Sachiko and her family were .6 miles away. Toshi did not survive the blast. Later, every member of Sachiko's family died, either from radiation poisoning or the cancers that followed it. Her story begins with that unspeakable morning and recounts her will to survive, her lifelong commitment to nonviolence, and her struggle to tell her story.

People worship in many different ways around the world. This book is all about the places people use for gathering, praying, and meditating as they follow their own religions. You will read about sacred places from five different world belief systems: Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. As you will see, there are some differences between these sacred places, but there are lots of similarities, too.
