By Bonnie Bader

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was only 25 when he helped organize the Montgomery Bus Boycott and was soon organizing black people across the country in support of the right to vote, desegregation, and other basic civil rights. Maintaining nonviolent and peaceful tactics even when his life was threatened, King was also an advocate for the poor and spoke out against racial and economic injustice until his death—from an assassin’s bullet—in 1968. With clearly written text that explains this tumultuous time in history and 80 black-and-white illustrations, this Who Was…? celebrates the vision and the legacy of a remarkable man.

Softcover, contains 105 pages.

By Joanne Stanbridge

This fun- and fact-filled guide to Canada’s government gets an update just in time for the Federal Election!

In this easy-to-read, information-packed book, a comical duo (a keener student and her offbeat sidekick) guide readers through Canada’s electoral and governing process.

Nine chapters take the reader through topics like Confederation, federalism, monarchy, elections and voting, minority and majority governments, a day in the House of Commons — plus updated items on Senate Reform and new legislation like the Fair Election act.

Jam-packed with interesting photos and zany sections (like the ones that tell kids how to stump an adult!), Who Runs This Country, Anyway? takes a unique approach to this curriculum subject. It’s perfect for teachers and students, future politicians, and anyone studying for the citizenship test!

Softcover reference book, 80 pages.

By Emily Sands

Who can resist the allure of ancient Egypt - and the thrill of uncovering mysteries that have lain hidden for thousands of years? Not the feisty Miss Emily Sands, who in 1926, 4 years after the discovery of King Tut's tomb, led an expedition up the Nile in search of the tomb of the god Osiris. Alas, Miss Sands and crew soon vanished into the desert, never to be seen again. But luckily, her keen observations live on in the form of a lovingly kept journal, full of drawings, photographs, booklets, foldout maps, postcards, and many other intriguing samples.

Here are just a few of Egyptology's special features:

  • An extravagantly gilded cover, featuring a raised Horus hawk encrusted with 3 "gems"
  • A playable game of Senet (ancient Egyptian checkers) including board, pieces, original-style dice, and rules
  • A souvenir booklet showing how to read simple hieroglyphs
  • A scrap of textured "mummy cloth"
  • A facsimile of the gilded mummy mask of King Tut
  • A gilded eye-of-Horus amulet with a "jewel" at the end

Rich with information about life in ancient Egypt and peppered with Miss Sands' lively narration, Egyptology concludes with a letter from the former Keeper of Antiquities at the British Museum, explaining which parts of this unique tale may be accepted as fact, which are guided by legend, and which reflect the author's delightful sense of fancy.

By Anne Frank, Translated by B.M. Mooyaart

Discovered in the attic in which she spent the last years of her life, Anne Frank's remarkable diary has since become a world classic - a powerful reminder of the horrors of war and an eloquent testament to the human spirit. In 1942, with Nazis occupying Holland, a 13-year-old Jewish girl and her family fled their home in Amsterdam and went into hiding. For the next 2 years, until their whereabouts were betrayed to the Gestapo, they and another family lived cloistered in the "Secret Annex" of an old office building. Cut off from the outside world, they faced hunger, boredom, the constant cruelties of living in confined quarters, and the ever-present threat of discovery and death.

In her diary Anne Frank recorded vivid impressions of her experiences during this period. By turns thoughtful, moving, and amusing, her account offers a fascinating commentary on human courage and frailty and a compelling self-portrait of a sensitive and spirited young woman whose promise was tragically cut short. With an introduction by Eleanor Roosevelt.

By Linda Granfield

When World War I began in 1914, no one knew that millions of young people would die in the agonizing years ahead. No one imagined the effect it would have on family life, or that whole villages would disappear, or that entire nations would be changed forever. They believed their sons and daughters, mothers and fathers would be home by Christmas. They were tragically mistaken.

With photos, memorabilia, and anecdotes, Linda Granfield brings us face-to-face with people from all walks of life who risked everything for their country. These painstakingly-gathered bits and pieces are remnants of conflict on a scale never before witnessed. Hastily-penned letters, notes written in code, and prayers for deliverance form an eloquent portrait of humanity, and a startling comment on the devastation of war.

By Terry Deary, Illustrated by Martin Brown

The horrors and hardships of the First World War were meant to last a mere four months...but ground on for four grim years. Of all the history in the world, this war — known as the Great War — was perhaps the most horrible. With timelines, quizzes, and lots of information about all the nasty bits from gruesome gas to lovely lice, Frightful First World War tells it like it really was in a way that will engage young readers. Since the very first Horrible History book was published in 1993, history books for children have never been the same. The appeal of all things wicked, weird and woeful has proven to be huge and the series is a bestseller around the world.
