If you didn't have any bones, what would you look like? It wouldn't be pretty! Read all about vertebrates–animals with bones–and find out just how bones shape what animals look like.  This interactive book on comparative anatomy will get your students interested in what is holding them up. For Grades K-2.  

It is the year 1854 and a deadly cholera outbreak has come to Broad Street in London.  A young Orphan named Eel and his best friend Florrie team up to help Dr. John Snow prove that cholera is spread through water and not by poisonous air, as is the belief at the time.  This is a great story about the history of public health and about one young orphan finding a purpose through science.  Based on true events,this book combines historical fiction, a medical mystery, and a survival story all into one exciting tale.  (Grades 5-8 School Library Journal)  

 

 

 

Doug is a robot who is supposed to be plugged in to download all of the information he needs about the city in which he lives. However, his window looks out into the city and the urge to explore and learn on his own is too great!  All young explorers ages 4 and up join Doug on his adventure through town.
