It will take Funny Boy and his galactic sense of humor to curdle these curds before America starts to spoil.

If Trees Could Sing is a whimsical tale about a young girl journeying through the depth and wonder of an unexpected rite of passag...e and the light-filled movement of healing and discovery. As ten year old, Christina joins with her family for the first time in the annual apple harvest; she encounters a mystical friendship that changes her life forever. This light and allegorical story depicts the preciousness of All life; as well, reveals the healing power that comes from listening within to the voice of our Inner True Self. While traversing the ridges of loss and separation, a transformational journey invites remembrance of the wisdom and knowing that awaits the discovery of the Pearl of Light within. Unique to If Trees Could Sing, is the development of a nine-movement soundtrack to partner with this story. The playful and deepening sounds of Celtic harp, Native American flute and keyboard offer an experience guided to activate imagination and imagery. The most powerful inspiration for me in bringing forth this story is in planting seeds of remembrance for children, as to the honoring of all of Life. With great hope, I invite the seeker to tap into the mysteries that await discovery when we use our heart to listen and nurture our innate imagination. read more

* An Audubon Book ** Notable Books for Children, Smithsonian ** CBC/NSTA Outstanding Science Trade Book *Atlantic puffins are an i...mportant part of the web of life in the North Atlantic, but these charming, comical seabirds had become rare in Maine due to human activity and were in danger of disappearing completely. This remarkable book chronicles the efforts of biologist Steven Kress to rejuvenate a once-flourishing puffin colony on Egg Rock, an island off the Maine coast, with puffin chicks from Newfoundland. With their large, colorful beaks, their upright posture, and their big, dark eyes, it's easy to see why puffins are popular all over the world. But for the past hundred years, puffins along the coast of Maine have been threatened with local extinction. Biologist Stephen Kress decided to try to bring puffins back to Maine with an experiment that had never been attempted before. Stunning color photographs on every page capture each step of this wildlife success story. As you learn about The Puffin Project, you'll also learn all about puffins how they are so wonderfully adapted to their ocean environment, how they catch fish, socialize, nest in burrows, and raise their young. Color throughout read more
