Love, Elmo
Author: Meg McLaughlin 
Illustrator: Tom Brannon


Abby Cadabby has never received a real letter before.
What will Elmo and his friends put in the surprise envelope?

"This adorable little book is full of wonderful learning opportunities. New vocabulary
words are sprinkled throughout to help children learn to express themselves more
fully.
Children will enjoy this sweet story of Elmo being kind to Abby, but they’ll also
learn so much from the clever educational tools. I highly recommend
Love, Elmo."

                                                                                                                                             with large sabertooth cat's skull)
                                                                   
Big Cats is a captivating, large-format book with interactive elements. A big center pop-up lion, as well as a life-sized "sabertooth" to excavate from a tarpit, lead kids on literary safari.

This kid-friendly book includes a compelling history of big cats, colorful habitat maps, and fresh, fun facts about lions, tigers, jaguars, and more. Do you know which fearless cats hunt crocodiles? Which cats can hang by their back feet alone? And which cat can jump as high as a basketball hoop? Big Cats has the answers!

Big Cats is a colorful, innovative, and fun presentation of ordinary facts about the larger members of the feline family, both living and extinct,” says Christopher A. Shaw, Fossil Collection Manager for the La Brea Tar Pits, Natural History & George C. Page Museums of Los Angeles County. “Not only does this book provide an excellent introduction to the natural history of large cats but also presents a thought-provoking overview of big-cat conservation.”

Adds Patrick Thomas, General Curator of the Bronx Zoo Wildlife Conservation Society: “Big cats have always inspired feelings of awe and respect. This interesting and informative book teaches young readers about the biology of these marvelous animals, the threats they face, and what can be done to help save them.”

Voices: Reflections on American Icon Through Words and Song—a special book and CD set honoring the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., on the 40th anniversary of his death.

Author: P.J. Shaw  
 
Voices: Reflections on an American Icon in Words and Song comprises 96 pages of remembrances as well as music inspired by the American movement for Civil Rights.

The book offers reflections from foot soldiers who marched alongside Dr. King, contemporary observers, and distinguished witnesses to history, such as Julian Bond, U.S. Rep. John Lewis, and Harris Wofford, assistant to President John F. Kennedy. Also included are writers, like the spirited poet Nikki Giovanni, Pulitzer Prize-winner Gene Patterson, and journalist John Seigenthaler, an assistant to Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy. Nobel Peace Prize-winners Jimmy Carter and Archbishop Desmond Tutu have also added their thoughts on King, whose passion was to bring all people together in a symphony of love, said Noel Leo Erskine, an associate professor of ethics and theology at Emory University.

"Voices presents a moving tribute to a truly great American.”
