Annie Sullivan was little more than a half-blind orphan with a fiery tongue when she arrived at Ivy Green in 1887. Desperate for work, she’d taken on a seemingly impossible job—teaching a child who was deaf, blind, and as ferocious as any wild animal. But if anyone was a match for Helen Keller, it was the girl who’d been nicknamed Miss Spitfire. In her efforts to reach Helen’s mind, Annie lost teeth to the girl’s raging blows, but she never lost faith in her ability to triumph. Told in first person, Annie Sullivan’s past, her brazen determination, and her connection to the girl who would call her Teacher are vividly depicted in this powerful novel.Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 8/31/2010Pages: 256Reading Level: Age 10 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

As a kid, Will Ansel would spend hours rowing the creeks around Annapolis, Maryland. From his boat he could look down on the wrecks of Chesapeake skipjacks, and watch the turtles sun themselves on deckbeams and the tops of centerboard trunks. He found other types of Chesapeake boats there too, including the old "log" boats. Years later, Will built scaled-down skipjacks, wrote about them, and eventually went to work at Mystic Seaport as a ships' carpenter and boatbuilder. Will now lives in Georgetown, Maine, in an old house built at the water's edge, with a small shop and dock. The inventory of boats and kayaks is currently seven. Besides keeping up, using, and adding to these, he does some writing and painting, and work around a cabin in the woods.Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 1/1/2001Pages: 32Reading Level: Age 8 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.
