Are you interested in Yellowstone or planning a trip to the park? If so, you'll love Yellowstone National Park for Kids, Preteens, and Teenagers. Inside this detailed travel guide geared toward children, you'll learn all you need to know about America's first national park. For example, did you know that:

  • Yellowstone was discovered by John Colter in the early 1800s but for over fifty years, most Americans did not believe the reports of steaming hot springs and bubbling mudpots?
  • Yellowstone is one of the world s biggest active volcanoes? The hot underground magma is what causes the geysers to erupt and when you visit Yellowstone you actually go inside the volcanic caldera.
  • Both black bears and grizzly bears can be found in Yellowstone and they are omnivorous which means they eat both plants and animals?
  • Old Faithful erupts about every ninety minutes to heights of over one hundred feet?
  • Early visitors to Yellowstone used to catch fish in Yellowstone Lake then dip them into Fishing Cone Geyser to cook them?
Yellowstone National Park for Kids, Preteens, and Teenagers includes easy-to-read descriptions, photographs, and diagrams of the park's wildlife, history, and geology and it highlights some of the best hikes and attractions for children visiting Yellowstone. It also includes several Yellowstone themed word games and puzzles, an animal checklist, and a packing list geared toward children, preteens, and teenagers.

An Interactive Book of Maps and Worlds
Paperback      ISBN: 1908714204

A playful introduction to maps and global geography. Interactive, warm illustrations allow young readers to learn and engage with the fundamentals of maps by drawing maps of their room, house, and town. Cities are compared to one another in terms of geographical size and population size. Subway maps can be completed and colored in. Countries' resources, foods, languages, and landmarks are brought to life, by doodling, completing, redesigning, and embellishing the illustrations. Weather maps, climate change, bird migration, and ocean geography also find their place. Plenty of space is left for maps to be drawn, flags to be designed, and transport systems to be built. Finally, a fold-out poster slotted into the back of the book allows readers to create their own world.

The book is printed in four pantone colors, creating a bright, almost neon canvas for the fun within. Printed on heavy creamy paper stock, this is a great gift book that follows on from the success of Cicada Books's Draw Me a House.

Kathrin Jacobsen is an emerging artist embedded in the East London design scene. Her illustration style is humorous and accessible to both adults and children.

You Want Women to Vote, Lizzie Stanton?
You Want Women to Vote, Lizzie Stanton?
Paperback      ISBN: 0698117646

This biography of Elizabeth Cady Stanton is as spirited as the women's rights pioneer herself.

Who says women shouldn't speak in public? And why can't they vote? These are questions Elizabeth Cady Stanton grew up asking herself. Her father believed that girls didn't count as much as boys, and her own husband once got so embarrassed when she spoke at a convention that he left town. Luckily Lizzie wasn't one to let society stop her from fighting for equality for everyone. And though she didn't live long enough to see women get to vote, our entire country benefited from her fight for women's rights.
Fritz imparts not just a sense of Stanton's accomplishments but a picture of the greater society Stanton strove to change. Highly entertaining and enlightening. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

This objective depiction of Stanton's life and times makes readers feel invested in her struggle. -- School Library Journal (starred review)

An accessible, fascinating portrait. -- The Horn Book

A Young People's History of the United States: Columbus to the War on Terror
A Young People's History of the United States
Columbus to the War on Terror
Paperback      ISBN: 1583228691

A Young People's History of the United States brings to US history the viewpoints of workers, slaves, immigrants, women, Native Americans, and others whose stories, and their impact, are rarely included in books for young people. A Young People's History of the United States is also a companion volume to The People Speak, the film adapted from A People's History of the United States and Voices of a People's History of the United States.
Beginning with a look at Christopher Columbus's arrival through the eyes of the Arawak Indians, then leading the reader through the struggles for workers' rights, women's rights, and civil rights during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and ending with the current protests against continued American imperialism, Zinn in the volumes of A Young People's History of the United States presents a radical new way of understanding America's history. In so doing, he reminds readers that America's true greatness is shaped by our dissident voices, not our military generals.
