ROAR! Now I’ve got your attention, can I interest you in a book of poems about dinosaurs?
Though they went extinct 65 million years ago, dinosaurs are still everywhere. They’re on TV in The Land Before Time, in classrooms and museum collections, but it might still be hard to believe that dinosaurs walked here once. The poets in this anthology bring dinosaurs out of their display cases and into your home, and ask them politely to be careful with the carpet.
This book is approximately for children aged 8+.
Bursting with energy and an immense love of nature, Heidi proves to have remarkable, transforming powers over those people closest to her, including Clara, a handicapped young lady from a wealthy German family, Peter, a goatherd, and his blind grandmother. Even Heidi’s pessimistic grandfather eventually accepts and enjoys the healing effects of Heidi’s innocence, sensitivity, and love.
Going to school can be tough. Exciting, but tough. You’ll learn to say hello, you’ll meet new friends, but you’ll learn to say good bye too, which can be difficult at times. If you’re feeling like that, Ming is too. She goes to school every day and grows up there, and she’d love to share you her story.

Na Willa is a bright, adventurous girl living in Surabaya’s suburbs, her home in the middle of an alley surrounded by cypress trees. She spends her days running after trains with Dul (she always beats him), going down to the market with Mak, and thinking about how people can sing through radios. But while everyone else tells Na Willa what to do and who to be, Na Willa wants to be free. She doesn’t want to be “just” a girl, she doesn’t want to look just like Pak, or just Mak. She wants to be both and more.
