Tune in to discover: 

  • Your Freedom, Your Power: A Kid's Guide to the First Amendment by ALLISON MATULLI. The First Amendment grants kids and every other citizen five monster privileges: freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, and the right to petition the government. If the First Amendment is everywhere in their lives, shouldn’t kids know more about it? Yes!

  • Before Colors: Where Pigments and Dyes Come From by ANNETTE BAY PIMENTEL. Discover how color is harnessed from nature in this survey of dyes and pigments from around the world. Organized by color — from yellow to purple to red and more — Before Colors marries a lyrical core text with tons of informational material for curious readers.

  • She's a Mensch!: Jewish Women Who Rocked the World by ALANA BAROUCH and RACHELLE BURK. An inspiring, illustrated collection of Jewish female role models across many fields and disciplines! Meet a judo champion, a chess grandmaster, a spacewalking astronaut, a World War II spy, and more... What do all these people have in common? They are all inspiring Jewish women — mensches who rocked the world!

  • Race Against Death: The Greatest POW Rescue of World War II by DEBORAH HOPKINSON. When American and Filipino soldiers were captured and made prisoners of war and forced to endure horrific conditions, US Army Rangers undertook one of the most daring and dangerous rescue missions of all time in order to save them. Often called the Great Raid, this remarkable story remains largely forgotten. This book serves to remember and honor their extraordinary effort.
