Summary

This enchanting tale of dragons, betrayals, and the power of friendship is the first in a charming and thrilling series by New York Times best-selling author Jessica Day George. Creel can't believe her aunt wants to sacrifice her to the local dragon. It's a ploy to lure a heroic knight so that he will fight the dragon, marry Creel out of chivalrous obligation, and lift the entire family out of poverty. Creel isn't worried. After all, nobody has seen a dragon in centuries. But when the beast actually appears, Creel not only bargains with him for her life, she also ends up with a rare bit of treasure from his hoard: a pair of simple blue slippers, or so she thinks. But Creel learns that these shoes could be used to save her kingdom from the brink of war - or destroy it.

Summary

For 13 years, Ben Tomlin was an only child. But all that changes when his mother brings home Zan - an eight-day-old chimpanzee. Ben’s father, a renowned behavioral scientist, has uprooted the family to pursue his latest research project: a high-profile experiment to determine whether chimpanzees can acquire advanced language skills. Ben’s parents tell him to treat Zan like a little brother. Ben reluctantly agrees. At least now he’s not the only one his father’s going to scrutinize.

It isn’t long before Ben is Zan’s favorite, and Ben starts to see Zan as more than just an experiment. His father disagrees. Soon Ben is forced to make a critical choice between what he is told to believe and what he knows to be true - between obeying his father or protecting his brother from an unimaginable fate.

Half Brother isn’t just a story about a boy and a chimp. It’s about the way families are made, the way humanity is judged, the way easy choices become hard ones, and how you can’t always do right by the people and animals you love. In the hands of master storyteller Kenneth Oppel, it’s a novel you won’t soon forget.

p>Rich in suspense and brimming with adventure, the New York Times best-selling Underland Chronicles unfold the fate of the Underland and the great warrior, Gregor. Suzanne Collins is also the author of the best-selling Hunger Games trilogy. In the fourth volume of the critically acclaimed Underland Chronicles, Gregor is drawn ever deeper into a brewing crisis. For generations, rats have run the mice - or "nibblers" - out of whatever lands they've claimed, keeping them constantly on the move. But now the mice are disappearing, and the young queen Luxa, who credits them with saving her life, is determined to find out why. When Gregor joins her on a fact-finding mission, he's relieved that this time, at least, there's no prophecy on the line. But when the true fate of the mice is revealed, it is something far more sinister than Gregor or Luxa have imagined - and it points the way to the final prophecy he has yet to fulfilled. Gregor's role as warrior and his abilities as a rager are put to the test in this suspenseful, action-packed penultimate installment of Suzanne Collins's thrilling Underland Chronicles.

The enchanting Unicorn Quest series reaches its thrilling conclusion as two sisters fight to save a magical land from destruction. After a lifetime of being the younger sister - of letting Sophie fight her battles, of following her on countless experiences and through a fireplace into a magical land - it’s finally Claire Martinson’s turn to lead. And she’ll do anything to keep her big sister safe: resist the wraiths’ cold shadows, experiment with new and dangerous magic, become a thief in disguise. When Claire discovers that 'only a queen can defeat a queen', she knows she must steal and reforge the ancient Crown of Arden to stand a chance against the darkness that threatens the world and her family. Because Queen Estelle d’Astora, desperate to reclaim her power, will stop at nothing to gain the support of the four guilds, even if it means killing the last unicorn. Claire will need every friend she’s made to help her as the fate of Arden hangs in the balance. But the secrets of the unicorns are deeper than anyone could have ever imagined. Does Claire have what it takes to ignite the long-buried magic of this world and wake the fire in the stars? Or will the true salvation of Arden rest on one final and heartbreaking sacrifice?

The author of the best-selling Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site picture book makes her middle-grade debut in this utterly delightful series perfect for fans of Beverly Cleary’s The Mouse and the Motorcycle. Meet Revver: a little squirrel with big dreams...to drive a race car!  His siblings might not understand his need for speed, but Revver doesn’t care.

He spends his days staring at the racetrack just below his nest, where the cars zoom by day in and day out.  When Revver finally gets the chance to sneak out to the track, he finds that becoming part of the pit crew is more difficult than he expected.

Can Revver prove to Bill that he deserves to be part of the team? Perfect for fans of Ralph S. Mouse, Revver the Speedway Squirrel is a funny, action-packed and heartwarming story about family, feeling different and following your heart.

The Velveteen Rabbit

13 ratings

Summary

There was once a velveteen rabbit, and in the beginning he was really splendid. He was fat and bunchy, as a rabbit should be; his coat was spotted brown and white, he had real thread whiskers, and his ears were lined with pink sateen. On Christmas morning, when he sat wedged in the top of the Boy's stocking, with a sprig of holly between his paws, the effect was charming. There were other things in the stocking, nuts and oranges and a toy engine, and chocolate almonds and a clockwork mouse, but the Rabbit was quite the best of all. For at least two hours the Boy loved him, and then Aunts and Uncles came to dinner, and there was a great rustling of tissue paper and unwrapping of parcels, and in the excitement of looking at all the new presents the Velveteen Rabbit was forgotten. For a long time he lived in the toy cupboard or on the nursery floor, and no one thought very much about him. He was naturally shy, and being only made of velveteen, some of the more expensive toys quite snubbed him.

A long-awaited guide to climate action and justice for young people by best-selling, award-winning, internationally acclaimed writer and climate activist Naomi Klein. Temperatures are rising all over the world, leading to wildfires, droughts, animal extinctions, and ferocious storms - climate change is real. But how did we get to this state, and what can we do next?

Using examples of change and protest from around the world, including profiles of young activists from a wide range of backgrounds, Klein shows that young people are not just part of the climate change movement, they are leading the way.  How to Change Everything will provide listeners with clear information about how our planet is changing, but also, more importantly, with inspiration, ideas, and tools for action. Because young people can help build a better future. Young people can help decide what happens next. Young people can help change everything.

Summary

When Kid accompanies her parents to New York City for a six-month stint of dog-sitting and home-schooling, she sees what looks like a tiny white cloud on the top of their apartment building. Rumor says there’s a goat living on the roof, but how can that be? As Kid soon discovers, a goat on the roof may be the least strange thing about her new home, whose residents are both strange and fascinating. In the penthouse lives Joff Vanderlinden, the famous skateboarding fantasy writer, who happens to be blind. On the ninth floor are Doris and Jonathan, a retired couple trying to adapt to a new lifestyle after Jonathan’s stroke. Kenneth P. Gill, on the 10th, loves opera and tends to burble on nervously about his two hamsters - or are they guinea pigs? Then there’s Kid’s own high-maintenance mother, Lisa, who is rehearsing for an Off Broadway play and is sure it will be the world’s biggest flop. Kid is painfully shy and too afraid to talk to new people at first, but she is happy to explore Manhattan, especially the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park, where she meets Will, who is also home-schooled and under the constant watchful eye of his grandmother. As Kid and Will become friends, she learns that Will’s parents died in the Twin Towers. Will can’t look out windows, he is a practitioner of Spoonerism, and he is obsessed with the Ancient Egyptian Tomb of Perneb. When Kid learns that the goat will bring good luck to whoever sees it, suddenly it becomes very important to know whether the goat on the roof is real. So Kid and Will set out to learn the truth, even if it means confronting their own fears.

Summary

Bambi is the beloved story of a young deer’s childhood and coming of age in a forest with many dangers. Because deer are prey for humans, Bambi is taught from a young age about the dangers he will face and warned to always be cautious. He, and all of the other creatures in the forest, fear humans. The novel skips through bits of Bambi’s life to show him growing up, falling in love, experiencing loss and heartbreak, and learning more about humans each time he encounters them. Each encounter frightens him and solidifies his fear of the power of humans, until he makes a discovery about the harm that humans inflict on one another. As he grows up, Bambi discovers the true nature of power and compassion and will come to understand his place in the balance of living creatures. The story is a challenging exploration of the impact of humans on the natural world and creatures but has all of the charm of a coming-of-age novel. Bambi’s themes remain relevant and meaningful to audiences nearly a century after its original publication.

He was named "Sham" for the sun, this golden red stallion born in the Sultan of Morocco's stone stables. Upon his heel was a small white spot, the symbol of speed. But on his chest was the symbol of misfortune. Although he was as swift as the desert winds, Sham's proud pedigree would be scorned all his life by cruel masters and owners. This is the classic story of Sham and his friend, the stable boy Agba. Their adventures take them from the sands of the Sahara to the royal courts of France and, finally, to the green pastures and stately homes of England. For Sham was the renowned "Godolphin Arabian" whose blood flows through the veins of almost every superior Thoroughbred. Sham's speed - like his story - has become legendary.

Who's There?

Summary

For ages three to eight. Baby Edward stories are specially formulated to get children to sleep at bedtime. This story includes sound effects, ambience, and soothing music (the Baby Edward "Bed Time Tune"). The tale is set at one of Baby Edward's favorite locations - the waterfall. The noise of the waterfall is closely linked to "white noise" which is widely used as a sleep aid for babies and likened to sounds experienced in the womb. Further techniques such as repeated melodic phrases (read in hushed, gentle tones) and characters that yawn (studies have shown this to be contagious, especially with children) are used to lull the listener to sleep as the story unfolds. Diversion is also used with words outside of a young child's vocabulary (which can encourage the mind to drift). These elements are delivered with a structure that has been carefully honed over time to provide a relaxing, sleep-inducing bedtime listen. Always start at the beginning, and if all goes to plan, you won't reach the end! In Who's There?, Edward and friends have to guess who is making lots of different animal noises behind the waterfall. Monkey is the master of ceremonies, but he's not giving anything away as Edward and friends try to see through his tricks and solve the mystery.

Fall is an important time of year on a ranch, mostly because it means that winter is coming soon! And, on Hank’s ranch, that means that the cake house is about to be filled with bags of feed to get the cattle through the long frozen days ahead. Unfortunately, this particular feed-delivery is accompanied by a town mutt named Roy, who gets Hank into big trouble with some local yellow jacket wasps. Once the cake house is full, Slim puts Hank in charge of guarding their winter supply from marauding coons - a responsibility that could only be handled by the elite forces of the Security Division. However, when Hank suddenly finds himself pitted against the notorious Eddy the Rac, he realizes that this mission will require every ounce of cunning he possesses. Will Hank be able to keep the cake house safe, or will Eddy’s sneaky tricks win the day?

Summary

Happy the Lab is back on the ranch, and it looks like he’s up to his usual good-natured, bumbling ways! And, it just so happens that he has wandered onto Hank’s ranch on a particularly exciting day: rain has finally come to their drought-stricken land, and - what’s even more exciting - radio reports claim that there’s a mountain lion on the prowl in their area! As the day unfolds, it appears that the mountain lion report was bogus, which is a good thing, since Hank already has his paws full surviving a bout of food-poisoning and a treacherous investigation of the machine shed, not to mention keeping an eye on Hap! Nevertheless, while Hank might find Hap a little exasperating at times, this latest adventure proves that a loyal lab is a great friend to have by your side when the going gets tough...then again, so is a cowdog!

"I loved every page. This is middle grade fiction at its best." (Ann Patchett) From the number one New York Times best-selling author of The Magicians comes a must-listen, wholly original middle-grade debut perfect for fans of the Chronicles of Narnia and Roald Dahl. Dear Uncle Herbert, You've never met me, but I'm your niece Kate, and since it is my birthday tomorrow and you are super-rich could you please send me a present? Kate and her younger brother, Tom, lead dull, uninteresting lives. And if their dull, uninteresting parents are anything to go by, they don't have much to look forward to. Why can't Kate have thrilling adventures and save the world the way people do in books? Even her 11th birthday is shaping up to be mundane - that is, until her mysterious and highly irresponsible Uncle Herbert, whom she's never even met before, surprises her with the most unexpected, exhilarating, inappropriate birthday present of all time: a colossal steam locomotive called the Silver Arrow.  Kate and Tom's parents want to send it right back where it came from. But Kate and Tom have other ideas - and so does the Silver Arrow - and soon they're off to distant lands along magical rail lines in the company of an assortment of exotic animals who, it turns out, can talk. With only curiosity, excitement, their own resourcefulness and the thrill of the unknown to guide them, Kate and Tom are on the adventure of a lifetime...and who knows? They just might end up saving the world after all.  This thrilling fantasy adventure will not only entertain young listeners, but inspire them to see the beautiful, exciting, and precious world around them with new eyes.

Thornton Waldo Burgess (January 17, 1874-June 5, 1965), an American conservationist and author of children's stories, loved nature’s living creatures so much that he wrote about them for 50 years in books and his newspaper column, "Bedtime Stories". Old Granny Fox is the tale of Granny Fox and her grandkit Reddy Fox who live in the Green Forest near the Green Meadows with the Smiling Pool and the Laughing Brook. Old Granny Fox has to restrain Reddy, who is headstrong and inexperienced. He sees Brown’s farm - the henhouse in particular - as an easy source of food, so Granny has to educate him about the perils. The anthropomorphized characters and their thoughts and conversations are quite believable, and the plot is engaging and filled with suspense.

But one summer Sunday, Marty comes across something different on the road just past the old Shiloh schoolhouse, a young beagle, and that's where the trouble begins. What do you do when a dog you suspect is being mistreated runs away and comes to you? When the man who owns the dog has a gun? This is Marty's problem, and it is one he will have to face alone. Soon Marty will have to put his courage on the line, discovering in the process that it is not always easy to separate right from wrong. Sometimes, however, a boy will do almost anything to save a dog.

Song for a Whale

5 ratings

Summary

In the spirit of modern-day classics like Fish in a Tree and Counting by 7s comes the story of a deaf girl's connection to a whale whose song can't be heard by his species and the journey she takes to help him. From fixing the class computer to repairing old radios, 12-year-old Iris is a tech genius. But she's the only deaf person in her school, so people often treat her like she's not very smart. If you've ever felt like no one was listening to you, then you know how hard that can be. When she learns about Blue 55, a real whale who is unable to speak to other whales, Iris understands how he must feel. Then she has an idea: She should invent a way to "sing" to him! But he's 3,000 miles away. How will she play her song for him? Full of heart and poignancy, this affecting story by sign language interpreter Lynne Kelly shows how a little determination can make big waves. This audiobook edition includes an author’s note and a section on deafness and sign language, both read by the author Lynne Kelly  "Fascinating, brave, and tender...a triumph." (Katherine Applegate, Newbery Award-winning author of The One and Only Ivan) "Beautifully written and such an important story for kids with big struggles in their lives. I fell into Iris's world from the first chapter. Lynne Kelly does an amazing job telling the story from Iris's perspective." (Millicent Simmonds, actress, Wonderstruck and A Quiet Place) "Quick-moving, suspenseful...this remains a satisfying, energetic read. Iris' adventures will engross readers." (Kirkus Reviews) "This finely crafted novel affectingly illuminates issues of loneliness, belonging, and the power of communication." (Publishers Weekly)

Summary

The Ice Dragon is an enchanting tale of courage and sacrifice for listeners of all ages by the wildly popular author of the number one New York Times best-selling Song of Ice and Fire series, George R. R. Martin. In the world of A Song of Ice and Fire, the ice dragon was a creature of legend and fear, for no man had ever tamed one. When it flew overhead, it left in its wake desolate cold and frozen land. But Adara was not afraid. For Adara was a winter child, born during the worst freeze that anyone, even the Old Ones, could remember.  Adara could not remember the first time she had seen the ice dragon. It seemed that it had always been in her life, glimpsed from afar as she played in the frigid snow long after the other children had fled the cold. In her fourth year she touched it, and in her fifth year she rode upon its broad, chilled back for the first time. Then, in her seventh year, on a calm summer day, fiery dragons from the North swooped down upon the peaceful farm that was Adara's home. And only a winter child - and the ice dragon who loved her - could save her world from utter destruction.

New from Newbery Honor author Kirby Larson, the moving story of a Japanese American girl who is separated from her dog upon being sent to an incarceration camp during WWII. Although Mitsi Kashino and her family are swept up in the wave of anti-Japanese sentiment following the attack on Pearl Harbor, Mitsi never expects to lose her home - or her beloved dog, Dash. But, as World War II rages and people of Japanese descent are forced into incarceration camps, Mitsi is separated from Dash, her classmates, and life as she knows it. The camp is a crowded and unfamiliar place, whose dusty floors, seemingly endless lines, and barbed wire fences begin to unravel the strong Kashino family ties. With the help of a friendly neighbor back home, Mitsi remains connected to Dash in spite of the hard times, holding on to the hope that the war will end soon and life will return to normal. Though they've lost their home, will the Kashino family also lose their sense of family? And will Mitsi and Dash ever be reunited??

New York Times best seller!  Artemis Fowl meets Men in Black in this exhilarating debut middle-grade fantasy, the first in a trilogy filled with #blackgirlmagic. Perfect for fans of Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky, the Percy Jackson series, and Nevermoor. Amari Peters has never stopped believing her missing brother, Quinton, is alive. Not even when the police told her otherwise or when she got in trouble for standing up to bullies who said he was gone for good. So when she finds a ticking briefcase in his closet, containing a nomination for a summer tryout at the Bureau of Supernatural Affairs, she’s certain the secretive organization holds the key to locating Quinton - if only she can wrap her head around the idea of magicians, fairies, aliens, and other supernatural creatures all being real. Now she must compete for a spot against kids who’ve known about magic their whole lives. No matter how hard she tries, Amari can’t seem to escape their intense doubt and scrutiny - especially once her supernaturally enhanced talent is deemed “illegal”. With an evil magician threatening the supernatural world, and her own classmates thinking she’s an enemy, Amari has never felt more alone. But if she doesn’t stick it out and pass the tryouts, she may never find out what happened to Quinton.

Summary

Mole is happy with his life until, one day, in the middle of spring-cleaning, he emerges from his hole at Mole End and starts meandering around the English countryside. Everything is new for the simple but stalwart Mole. Never before has he seen a river, taken a boat ride, or encountered the woods. But this is nothing compared to what awaits him when he gets tangled up in the escapades of the indomitable Mr. Toad, the society-hating Badger of Wild Wood, and the easy-going Water Rat! Motorcars, gypsies, jailbreaks, and a weasel rebellion are all in store for these intrepid animals. Beyond mischievous life adventures, the story conveys the typical turn of 20th-century life in Britain and the struggle between the noisy, common way and the more genteel life.

Meditation Stories for Kids

Summary

Are you looking for ways to get your kids to fall asleep faster? Do your kids love unicorns, dragons, and dinosaur stories? If yes, then pay attention.... Bedtime stories can and should be listened to over and over again and can become a healthy addition to any bedtime routine. The prompts are intended to give plenty of space for imagination, and hopefully, great dreams will follow.   It can be helpful to follow up with your children, either immediately after the story has been listened to or the following morning. This can be a nice moment of connection for parents and their children as they can then discuss together what their personal visualization was like.  Asking questions that are both specific and open-ended like, “When you were on the hike in the woods, and you stumbled across the babbling brook, what did you think?” The idea is to ask the child about a specific part of the visualization but to leave the space for the child to fill in their own creative visualization details.    Meditation and visualization are powerful tools that can be employed by anyone of any age. Hopefully, the stories in this audiobook have been useful.  Sometimes, in life, the best thing we can do is learn from others, and I hope that in listening to this audiobook, you have discovered many wonderful lessons from the little boys and girls who shared their stories with you here today.   As you listen, be sure to keep your eyes closed so you can fall asleep. After all, you cannot sleep if you have your eyes open! And you, my friend, need a great night’s sleep so you can wake up tomorrow and have enough energy to do everything that you need to do.   It is a widely used form of meditation and is suitable at any time of the day. In this approach, one is expected to focus on the experience and the environment. Even though mindfulness meditation may appear elementary, it requires a commitment to pull it off. In using a mindfulness approach, you should start by focusing on your breathing. Learn how to direct your attention to your breathing and allow distractions to emerge and fade off just like clouds in the sky. Picture the distractions as an approaching sheep that jumps over a gate.  The stories in the audiobook will help your kids to fall asleep faster with a smile and also with an amazing imagination on those lovable characters.

Over a frantic phone call, she tells Koko that she’s been kidnapped by a human, which is preposterous - everyone knows that humans aren’t real! Luckily, Didi is on the case. Her plan: To go undercover at the Humanland amusement park to find the Queen. But much like a roller coaster, Didi’s plans are not complete without plenty of twists and thrills. Filled with daring escapes and big-belly laughs, this wacky mystery could only come from the mind of the inimitable Tom Angleberger. The book takes place in the same world as Inspector Flytrap but does not require knowledge of the previous series.

Summary

Of especially naughty children, it is sometimes said: “They must have been raised by wolves.” The Incorrigible children actually were. Discovered in the forests of Ashton Place, the Incorrigibles are no ordinary children: Alexander keeps his siblings in line with gentle nips; Cassiopeia has a bark that is (usually) worse than her bite; and Beowulf is alarmingly adept at chasing squirrels. Luckily, Miss Penelope Lumley is no ordinary governess. Only fifteen years old and a graduate of the Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females, Penelope embraces the challenge of her new position. Though she is eager to instruct the children in Latin verbs and the proper use of globes, first she must eliminate their canine tendencies.But mysteries abound at Ashton Place: Who are these three wild creatures? Why does Old Timothy, the coachman, lurk around every corner? Will Penelope be able to civilize the Incorrigibles in time for Lady Constance’s holiday ball? And what on earth is a schottische? Penelope is no stranger to mystery, as her own origins are also cloaked in secrecy. But as Agatha Swanburne herself once said, “Things may happen for a reason, but that doesn’t mean we know what the reason is—at least, not yet.

Summary

Roy Eberhardt has recently, and unhappily, arrived in Florida. "Disney World is an armpit," he states flatly, "compared to Montana." Roy's family moves a lot, so he's used to the new-kid drill. Florida bullies are pretty much like bullies everywhere. But Roy finds himself oddly indebted to the hulking Dana Matherson. If Dana hadn't been sinking his thumbs into Roy's temples and mashing his face against the school-bus window, Roy might never have spotted the running boy. And the running boy is the first interesting thing Roy's seen in Florida. The boy was about Roy's age, but he was running away from the school bus. He had no books, no backpack, and, here's the odd part, no shoes. Sensing a mystery, Roy sets himself on the boy's trail. The chase will introduce him to some other intriguing Floridian creatures: potty-trained alligators, a beleaguered construction foreman, some burrowing owls, a fake-fart champion, a renegade eco-avenger, some slippery fish, a sinister pancake PR man, and several extremely poisonous snakes with unnaturally sparking tails. Life in Florida is looking up. Hoot is a 2003 Newbery Medal Honor Book.

Are you looking for a highly entertaining book of bedtime stories for children, loaded with tales about animals and people? If so, this is the right book for you!

Nonetheless, having a good bedtime routine where you play a story for them could help your little ones relax, cool down, and lessen the level of stress, allowing them to sleep better at night. In these stories, you will find simple breathing and meditation exercises made especially for children, which will bring their mind into a state of relaxation and tranquility - a prelude to a good and deep sleep.  These simple exercises form integral parts of the stories and are presented as opportunities to participate in the story itself. The child is driven to imagine scenes, colors, and animals and will feel like more than spectator of the adventure. They are also useful to stimulate the abilities of visualization and imagination of children's minds, skills too often wasted on taking in everyday stimuli. Imagination and visualization will help children create personal scenarios and lead them to deep relaxation - the first step to sleep and dream. Perhaps you are now looking for a book to help you with this.  In Bedtime Stories for Kids and Toddlers, you will find excellent and wonderful bedtime stories that will help your kid relax and get ready for a cozy and comfortable night’s sleep.

Summary

Winner of the Young Adult Sci-fi category, Readers' Favorite Book Awards - 2018

To them, he was an experiment. To me, he is family. 

The first time I saw him, I had no idea he had recently escaped from a mysterious lab. That he had been created there. I'd been living on the streets, which was tough, but preferable to home. Then one day, I stumbled upon this mangy dog being attacked. 

I saved him. But then he saved me and I realized that Muttface wasn't a normal dog. He was crazy intelligent. I'm talking Mensa levels. 

When we sought help from a grieving veterinarian named Sully, his clinic was attacked and destroyed by mercenaries. So now here we are, the three of us. On the run across the country against a powerful enemy. Who are they and what do they want with us? 

Through the danger, terror, and pain, one thing was becoming clear to me: I have finally found the family I always wanted and I will do anything to keep them safe....

Even if it means risking my own life. 

*The award-winning creator & screenwriter of ground-breaking BBC television show, Spirit Warriors starring Jessica Henwick (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Game of Thrones, The Defenders) brings you an action-packed thrill-ride in her debut novel fans unanimously raved about, describing it as a "Must-Read" and "Unputdownable".
