The Omnivore’s Dilemma for Kids The Secrets behind What You Eat by Michael Pollan


A young person’s version of Pollan’s now classic work on how our food gets to us, what is in it, and how it is grown. Pollan tracks animals and plants through the system. Very good value, with a new introduction and a Q&A section, Most helpfully, the text is divided into bite sized segments with illustrations, fact boxes, and explana- tory diagrams. We like it better than the “adult” version.

Chains A Novel by Laurie Halse Anderson


If an entire nation could seek its freedom, why not a girl? As the Revolutionary War begins, thirteen-year-old Isabel wages her own fight for freedom from slavery. Promised liberty upon the death of their owner, she and her sister, Ruth, in a cruel twist of fate, become the property of a malicious New York City couple, the Locktons, who have no sympathy for the American Revolution and even less for Ruth and Isabel. From acclaimed Quaker author Laurie Halse Anderson comes this compelling, impeccably researched novel that shows the lengths we can go to cast off our chains, both physical and spiritual.
