Despite all we know about the sentience of animals, society tends to view and treat nonhuman animals as lesser creatures. And for society to change its views, writers must change their views. We must look closely at how we depict animals and ask ourselves difficult questions. For example, are we using animals for our writing in a way that is authentic and fair? Or are we using them for our own purposes, leading to further misconceptions and abuses?
As our awareness awakens about animals’ intelligence, sensitivity, and social and emotional lives, literature is beginning to reflect this change in awareness. Yet little has been written about the process of writing about animals, from crafting point of view to giving animals realistic voices.
Writers face many questions and choices in their work, from how to educate without being didactic to how to develop animals as characters for an audience that still views them as ingredients. In this book, writers will find myriad voices to assist them in writing about animals, from tips about craft to understanding the responsibility of writing about animals.
*Every Child a Reader Honor Book
A rumination on our ability to recognize our interconnectedness with all people, that in order to eat a single meal, it takes the whole world to make it. There's something special bubbling in Nanni's big metal pot. And it smells delicious! What ingredients might be inside? When Nanni lifts the lid on her soup, she reveals the whole world inside: from the seeds that grew into vegetables, to the gardeners who lovingly tended to the plants, to the sun, moon, and stars that shone its light above them. And, of course, no meal is complete without a recipe passed down generations of family, topped and finished with Nanni's love.
In this tender tale by award-winning author Hunter Liguore and artist Vikki Zhang, readers will marvel at how a community and world can come together to put on an unforgettable meal between a granddaughter and her Nanni. Perfect for fans of Good People Everywhere, Thank You, Omu and Fry Bread.
“With cracker-airplanes that actually fly and edible-cracker fire engines with working hoses that squirt milk, readers will wish this was a real place to visit! Fun to discuss and bake with.” Reader and Mom, children 4 and 6.
This issue will take you from the gardens of a Vietnamese farmer, to a WWII concentration camp, to Wounded Knee in the Black Hills, to the handcrafted dolls made by a grandmother's hand, to a department store to buy a daughter her first bra, to the homeless in San Francisco, to a once-in-a-liftime dance of the moon swallows, to India where a blind woman guides the roots of a tree over water to construct a bridge, and then on to Oxfordshire to visit the Rollright Witch and the latest installation designed by UK artist David Goslin. These are just a few places on this museum-like journey through American Athenaeum. By seeing what others carry, we inevitably learn what we are also capable of carrying.
Won't you join us.
Join us as we celebrate a diverse group of writers, past and present, to create this museum of words.
How would it feel to know you were experiencing your last day on Earth? What would the end of the world look like to the Greek gods, the last bookstore owner, or the last philosopher? The story settings range from the fringes of Outer Space, to the last museum, to New York City the day before September 11, 2001, to Brighton Street with the last teddybear, and many more.
(Only print edition contains the stories by Bradbury, Cherryh, & Malzberg.)
Set against the wild and rugged western frontier of the Cossacks, the story of two brothers who fight against a corrupt landlord to protect their family and farm.

**A timely allegory for the Hiroshima/Nagasaki bombings.
***A must-read for the dragon enthusiast.
SYNOPSIS: When Dragons Fall, the author takes us to a Viking town that's preparing for the wedding of Berna, a farm girl, to a merchant's son. Although Berna has her heart set on marrying Jorn, a common fisherman, she doesn't want to disappoint her family, who will benefit from the match. The morning of the wedding, news of a dragon sighting forces a change of plans--the dragon is searching for a place to land, to birth its young. Berna's family takes cover and waits, and when it seems the threat has passed, returns home to hold the wedding to Berna's dismay--only the dragon is far from gone.

It wasn't so long ago when the front porch was the main feature of a home. Connected to the sidewalk, to the neighborhood, to the world-at-large, the front porch was a destination. Families gathered to discuss big ideas, to share heartache and joy, to greet neighbors with news. But then something changed and the community-centered feature become replaced. (Any guess with what? You'll have to read the issue to find out the answer.) This issue is a tribute to the long-lost artifact, the once-centerpiece of the family and community. We've recreated a front porch especially for you, complete with a museum-like experience for the everyday reader.
