Named a Smithsonian Notable Book for Children for 2010 Theodore Roosevelt’s heart was as big as the great outdoors he loved. A sickly, undersized boy, he grew into a physically fit, energetic man whose courage knew no bounds. Roosevelt hailed from the top of American society, but wealth could not shield him from human tragedy. As leader of a young, vigorous nation, he steered a middle course between the power brokers of big business and the needs of ordinary working people. A keen student of nature, Roosevelt would protect millions of acres for posterity. He was a writer, ranchman, politician, soldier, explorer, family man, and America’s 26th president, the youngest person to ever hold the office. Theodore Roosevelt for Kids brings to life this fascinating man, an American giant whose flaws were there for all the world to see. Twenty-one hands-on activities offer a useful glimpse at Roosevelt’s work and times. Readers will create a Native American toy, explore the effects of erosion, go on a modern big game hunt with a camera, and make felted teddy bears. The text includes a time line, online resources, and reading list for further study. And through it all, readers will appreciate how one man lived a “Bully!” life and made the word his very own.Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 4/28/2010Pages: 144Reading Level: Age 9 and Up

Kids with autism have a hard time communicating, which can be frustrating for autistic kids and for their peers. In this intimate yet practical book, author Daniel Stefanski, a fourteen-year-old boy with autism, helps readers understand why autistic kids act the way they do and offers specific suggestions on how to get along with them. While many "typical" kids know someone with autism, they sometimes misunderstand the behavior of autistic kids, which can seem antisocial or even offensive-even if the person with autism really wants to be friends. The result of this confusion is often painful for those with autism: bullying, teasing, excluding, or ignoring. How to Talk to an Autistic is an antidote. Written by an autistic kid for non-autistic kids, it provides personal stories, knowledgeable explanations, and supportive advice-all in Daniel's unique and charming voice and accompanied by lively illustrations. Always straightforward and often humorous, How to Talk to an Autistic Kid will give readers-kids and adults alike-the confidence and tools needed to befriend autistic kids. They'll also feel like they've made a friend already-Daniel. Book Details:Format: HardcoverPublication Date: 4/1/2011Pages: 48Reading Level: Age 9 and Up

Hansa Black Kid Sheep 12" Hansa Toys USA: Heirloom Quality Plush HANSA features 12 distinctively realistic Collections: Arctic, Aviary, Bears, Cats & Dogs, Down Under, Farm Animals, Monkeys, Safari, Woodland & Prairie, Fantasy Collection, the new Endangered & Extinct Series and Mechanicals. HANSA is famous for their unique and close-to-nature reproductions of the world's best loved animals. HANSA animals are handcrafted by artists, in "green oriented" studios.The HANSA Story What makes Hansa Toys different from their competitors is the quality and pin point accuracy of specific animal characteristics that are used in each production: Artists create each Hansa animal from portraits of the creature in its natural habitat. Most fabrics are custom designed and exclusively manufactured to HANSA'S exacting specifications. The animal's "coats" are meticulously hand-cut and trimmed, never stamped out by machine. The animals are hand sewn "inside out", resulting in the minimization of seams. This development of an exceptional internal stitching method allows the Hansa artisans create effects like muscle tone and "features" unique to each creature. On average, there are 42 separate pieces required to make each animal. (Some animals have as many as 240 different parts!) The subtle coloring on the animals is hand painted or airbrushed by specially trained Hansa artisans. Each animal is hand finished with loving detail to give them the life like look yet sweet face and cuddly feel that is unmistakably HANSA."Toys that Teach" HANSA's goal is to help educate children and adults alike about the natural lives of these magnificent creatures; to understnad, respect and appreciate the importance of our co-existance with all animals. Each animal comes with a "Toys that Teach" tag describing in detail the animal's history, habitat, lifestyle, gestation period, care of their young and eating habits.
