Earth's Layers

by Jason D. Nemeth

As Earth's inhabitants, we are pretty familiar with what the planet's surface looks like, but we seldom get a chance to look beneath Earth's crust. This captivating book takes a closer look at Earth's layers from crust to core. The volume discusses how Earth's layers contribute to the formation of its magnetic field and help fuel volcanic activity. Readers will learn the story of Earth's formation and come away knowing whether the planet's core is now growing warmer or cooling off. Fun photographs, useful diagrams, and age-appropriate language make these complex topics comprehensible to the book's lower-elementary audience.

Eat Your Poison, Dear

by James Howe

Cafeteria food may be hazardous to your health. Poor Milo Groot -- he's sprawled on the cafeteria floor, his cracked glasses inches away from his white face. Could it be the apple chili dogs? Could it be poison? Kids at the middle school are dropping like flies, and Sebastian Barth suspects there's something fishier than tuna dreamboats behind the epidemic. The trouble is, too many cooks have had the chance to spoil the stew. Sebastian finds out. At least he thinks he does, but he soon discovers that whipping up a dramatic disclosure without all the ingredients is a recipe for disaster.

Echo

by Pam Muñoz Ryan

Music, magic, and a real-life miracle meld in this genre-defying masterpiece from storytelling maestro Pam Muñoz Ryan. Lost and alone in a forbidden forest, Otto meets three mysterious sisters and suddenly finds himself entwined in a puzzling quest involving a prophecy, a promise, and a harmonica. Decades later, Friedrich in Germany, Mike in Pennsylvania, and Ivy in California each, in turn, become interwoven when the very same harmonica lands in their lives. All the children face daunting challenges: rescuing a father, protecting a brother, holding a family together. And ultimately, pulled by the invisible thread of destiny, their suspenseful solo stories converge in an orchestral crescendo. Richly imagined and masterfully crafted, ECHO pushes the boundaries of genre and form, and shows us what is possible in how we tell stories. The result is an impassioned, uplifting, and virtuosic tour de force that will resound in your heart long after the last note has been struck.<P><P> Winner of Newbery Honor
