Don't just learn your letters—build them! It's a book, it's a puzzle—and best of all, it's a way to learn the ABCs. Sara Midda's delightful How to Build an A comes with 11 fully safety-tested EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) pieces that can be pushed together to build all the letters of the alphabet, uppercase and lowercase. In the accompanying book, Midda, the British artist known for her charming watercolors, shows children the way. Each page introduces a new letter—A is for Apple, B is for Boy—and is illustrated with Midda's tiny people, who are shown comically hauling and heaving the pieces into place. Children will love the hands-on fun of bringing the letters of the alphabet to life. And parents will appreciate the mesh bag that comes with the kit, so all the parts stay together and can be used over and over again. For preschool and up.Book Details:Format: HardcoverPublication Date: 11/7/2008Pages: 56Reading Level: Age 2 and Up

The United States and its allies invaded Iraq seven years ago. Today the country is still at war, and no one can claim that true democracy has come. Four million Iraqis have been displaced, and about half of them, unable to flee the country, are now living in remote tent camps without access to schools, health care, or often even food and clean water. In Children of War, a companion title to Off to War: Voices of Soldiers’ Children, Deborah Ellis turns her attention to the most tragic victims of the Iraq war Iraqi children. She interviews two dozen young people, mostly refugees living in Jordan, but also a few who are trying to build new lives in North America. Their frank and harrowing stories reveal inspiring resilience as the children try to survive the consequences of a war in which they play no part.Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 5/25/2010Pages: 128Reading Level: Age 12 and Up

Green Toys Inc. makes an awesome line of classic children's toys constructed from recycled plastic and other materials.This helps reduce fossil fuel use and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improving the overall health and happiness of the planet. Start Simple: Recycled Plastic Milk JugsWe use recycled milk containers as the main ingredient in creating our toys. Yes, the exact plastic milk jugs that you and your family drink from every day. When you finish your milk and toss the container in the recycling bin, these milk containers are collected at your curb by a local recycling company, who then sorts them from all the other types of plastic. Next, the milk containers are reprocessed into super clean fresh plastic. For you plastic geeks, the plastic material we use is called high-density polyethylene (or HDPE). This material is considered one of the safest, cleanest plastics around. Made in California, USA: Less Transportation, Less Energy All Green Toys products are 100% made in the USA. To be more specific, they are produced in California, a state known for strict toy safety and environmental laws. It's cool to buy USA, but also think about this: transportation is one of the biggest contributors to greenhouse gasses. We all know driving less is good for mother nature, but did you ever think about how many miles a toy logs before it ends up in your local store? Our toys are truly local creations. Every step in the process, from milk container recycling to toy production to final assembly, occurs in California. Our raw materials and toys aren't shipped from overseas, which saves a lot of energy and reduces greenhouse gasses. It also guarantees your toys won't get seasick before they get to your home!
