Creep Out

Creep Out

Are you scared of the dark? Does being in a spooky place make you want to run and hide? Usually, the more you know about something, the less afraid you are apt to be. With that in mind, Creep Out explains the function or purpose of six types of potentially frightening places, demystifying their key features and distinctive elements while introducing famous examples that a reader could encounter in real lifežor perhaps explore virtually from behind the safety of a computer screen. A scene-setting diagram closes each book, highlighting some of the elements common to the particular place.

In the first book, Wilson, Do You See It?, Little Hare asked his good friend Wilson to help him identify the animals he saw in winter that lived in their big backyard in the country. This time, he's describing the animal sounds he's hearing around him. Wilson makes the guessing game a little harder by giving Little Hare rhyming word clues. The Wilson books provide an enjoyable challenge to young children as they use the cluesto guess the animals. Little ones can listen, while beginning readers will gain confidence from the repeated patterns.

Childhood Fears and Anxieties

Childhood Fears and Anxieties

This book explores why we feel anxiety and at how (believe it or not!) not all anxiety is bad. It also offers practical advice about what we can do when it feels like fear might be getting the best of us.

Sea Otter Heroes: The Predators That Saved an Ecosystem9781512426311$34.30$27.44

Patricia Newman

Marine biologist Brent Hughes didn't think sea otters and sea grass had much in common. But his research at Elkhorn Slough, an estuary on Monterey Bay in northern California, revealed a new and surprising connection between the two. The scientist expected this estuary to be overrun with algae due to the fertilizer runoff from surrounding fields. But it wasn't. Brett's answer: sea otters. The otters eat crabs, which prey on sea hares, a type of mollusk. Fewer crabs mean more sea hares. The sea hares consume algae, thereby allowing sea grass to thrive. This set of relationships within a food chain is known as a trophic cascade.

Human Rights in Focus

Human Rights in Focus

Do humans have innate rights? World bodies including the United Nations say the answer is unequivocally yes. What do those rights entail? How are they being violated? And what is being done to ensure respect for human rights for marginalized populations? These and other issues are examined in the Human Rights in Focus series. Vivid details and fully documented quotes add insight into these difficult issues. An appendix gives students ideas about how they can get involved.

Human Rights in Focus: Illegal Immigrants9781682822296$42.80$34.24

David M. Haugen

Immigration laws are designed to manage immigrant populations, reassert a nation's boundaries, and help define what it means to be a citizen of a given country—and all of this is meant to be carried out humanely and without discrimination. But some argue that these protections are not enough to guarantee the welfare and human rights of immigrants who enter the country illegally. Those rights, and whether they are being violated, are among the topics examined.

Human rights advocates contend that the LGBT community has yet to achieve full equality and acceptance—in the United States and elsewhere. In recent years in the United States, state legislators have introduced more than 250 bills that limit LGBT rights—and twenty of these have become law. In other parts of the world, it remains shameful to identify as LGBT; in some countries, it is even punishable by death. These and other human rights concerns are examined.

Buddhism9781422238165$37.10$29.68

Mark Thomas

Today, Buddhism is the world's fourth-largest religion, with over 576 million followers worldwide. Buddhists follow traditions and spiritual beliefs that were taught by Guatama Buddha, a revered wise man. Guatama Buddha lived in the eastern part of the Indian subcontinent more than 2,400 years ago. Although born into a royal family, he became concerned with the problem of suffering in the world and spent years studying a variety of religions and philosophies. Eventually, he was "enlightened," and spent the rest of his life teaching people the path to true happiness. Buddhism soon spread throughout Asia, and today most Buddhists live in countries like China, Thailand, Japan, and Burma. This book describes the origins and history of Buddhism, and sheds light on some of this religion's most important beliefs, practices, and rituals.

Aaron Bowen

Today Christianity is considered the world's largest religious faith, with around 2.2 billion followers. But Christianity is by no means a monolithic faith. Instead Christians are divided into a variety of denominations and sects—Roman or orthodox, Catholic or Protestant, Evangelical or Pentecostal, to name a few examples. All Christian sects share a belief in the divinity of Jesus Christ, who Christians believe came to Earth to redeem humanity. This book provides the history of Christianity, and explains how the current divisions in the faith occurred. It also provides information about the beliefs shared by most Christians, details the major sects, and explores festivals and holy days.

As early as the nineteenth century, a number of scientists recognized that fossil fuels like coal and oil are in limited supply and that burning them to produce energy cannot be sustained forever. In the decades that followed, new generations of researchers steadily perfected alternative, renewable energy sources intended to eventually replace fossil fuels. Today, those sustainable sources—including solar, wind, and geothermal—are rapidly changing the face of energy production around the globe.

Harvey, Sarah N. & Robin Steve

Eight teens are dropped off on a remote west-coast island for a week-long treatment program called INTRO (Into Nature to Renew Ourselves). The story is told by two of them: Alice, whose police-officer mother believes Alice might have a substance-abuse problem, and Caleb, who assaulted his abusive stepfather. They are joined by six other miscreants and three staff: a psychologist, a social worker and an ex-cop. On the first night, one of the girls disappears from her cabin. There is a panicked search of the island, but she is nowhere to be found. The adults seem oddly ineffectual in dealing with the crisis-and then the ex-cop gets sick and dies. The radio has been sabotaged, and there is no way to call for help. When the social worker also becomes ill, the kids decide to take matters into their own hands and track down the killer.

Trapped in a weird, snow-choked valley, Emma meets other kids with dark secrets and strange abilities: Eric, Casey, Bode, Rima, and a very special little girl, Lizzie. What they discover is that they--and Emma--may be nothing more than characters written into being from an alternative universe for a very specific purpose. Now what they must uncover is why they've been brought to this place--a world between the lines where parallel realities are created and destroyed and nightmares are written--before someone pens their end.

The most recent World Drug Report found that 1 in 20 adults (age 15-64)—roughly a quarter of a billion people—had improperly used opioids or opiates during the past year. This serieswill provide young readers with a greater understanding of this serious public health issue. Books in this series will help readers gain a deeper understanding of the issues and concerns related to opioid and opiate development and use or abuse.

Heroin use was once relatively rare in the United States, but drug cartels from Latin America have been steadily shipping large quantities into the country.
