This book tells the true story of what happened to a 12-year-old girl named Jutta (Debbie Levy's mother) in 1938. Actual entries in a posiealbum (autograph book) serve as stepping stones in a crucial year in history, when people of Jewish ancestry in Germany and Austria were systematically stripped of their rights, subjected to violence, and arrested without cause. Jutta was one of the lucky ones who escaped to America before the rising tide of violence erupted into World War II and the tragedy of the Holocaust. Remembrances from Jutta's friends and relatives introduce chapters, written in verse form, that describe her experiences--many of them typical of any teenager anywhere--and report some of the history of the era. Debbie wrote these verses in consultation with her mother to reflect her voice, feelings, and thoughts as she was living through this memorable year. The book also includes excerpts from Jutta's diary. Together the poesie writings, verses and diary entries reflect a year of change and chance, confusion and cruelty. Most of all, they describe a year of goodbyes.*Kirkus Reviews Best Book of 2010 **2011 Sydney Taylor Notable Book for Older Readers ** Parents' Choice Award 2010 *Book Details:Format: HardcoverPublication Date: 3/16/2010Pages: 144Reading Level: Age 10 and Up

This child is growing at an incredible rate, learning to walk, learning to touch, learning to love, and learning to say "No!" for the first time. All of this can be quite a handful for the new parent. In this first book in the series from the renowned Gesell Institute, which includes Your One-Year-Old through Your Ten- to Fourteen-Year-Old, the authors discuss all important questions that concern the twelve to twenty-four-month-old child. They examine the various stages of development between infancy and toddlerhood: what new things the child can do; how the child acts with parents and other people; what the child thinks and feels.

Rich is from a small town in rural New Zealand. Not exactly a city boy. He practically lived in Central Park for two years - on a quest for space and sky. The first Wishbone Bike was born out of wanting to give the kids a taste of the childhood we had. You see, when we were little, the grass was long, the air was fresh and the folks weren't always watching. We ran where we liked, rode until dark and collapsed smiling at the end of a crazy day. Rich designed and built the first Wishbone Bike prototypes in our NY bathroom. Since then, he's moved on a bit. From the bathroom in New York, to a garage in Wellington, to the studio - which is actually just a groovy old shed squeezed between a bookbinder, a carpet seller and a windmill-maker two doors down. These days folk are buying our bike on both sides of the Atlantic, the Pacific - and the Equator! That makes us pretty happy. Happy Riding, Rich and Jen, Wellington, New Zealand
