The Zoo s Shoes

Author: Lynn Brunelle
Publisher: Workman Publishing Company
ISBN: 0761149457
Release Date: 2008
Genre: Juvenile Nonfiction

It's the board book with strings attached!—and the perfect gift for preschoolers. Die-cut in the shape and size of a child's sneaker and featuring four sets of colorful laces threaded through the sturdy board pages, The Zoo's Shoes is the only book of its kind: a hand's-on guide that's a delight to read, yet functions as a practical learning tool. Lynn Brunelle, author of Pop Bottle Science and Camp Out!, has two children of "shoe-tying" age—the age when tying your own shoes marks one more significant step toward independence. This book makes it all easier, whether giving kids a place to practice their skills again and again, or giving parents the help they need to teach this curiously complicated task. It begins with Bunny trying to show the other animals in the zoo how to tie their laces, and then explains in illustrated step-by-step the basic "bunny ears" method of making and tying loops, referring to the book's color-coded laces. Readers help the animals—the zebra, the giraffe, tiger, crocodile, and leopard—tie their high-top sneakers: Zebra's shoes are black-and-white. She didn't tie them very tight. Would you tie them please? Slip-ons and shoes with Velcro have their place, but there's nothing like a child's feeling of Eureka! the first time he or she ties those pesky laces.

Escape from Camp 14

Author: Blaine Harden
Publisher: Penguin
ISBN: 9781101561263
Release Date: 2012-03-29
Genre: History

With a New Foreword The heartwrenching New York Times bestseller about the only known person born inside a North Korean prison camp to have escaped North Korea’s political prison camps have existed twice as long as Stalin’s Soviet gulags and twelve times as long as the Nazi concentration camps. No one born and raised in these camps is known to have escaped. No one, that is, except Shin Dong-hyuk. In Escape From Camp 14, Blaine Harden unlocks the secrets of the world’s most repressive totalitarian state through the story of Shin’s shocking imprisonment and his astounding getaway. Shin knew nothing of civilized existence—he saw his mother as a competitor for food, guards raised him to be a snitch, and he witnessed the execution of his mother and brother. The late “Dear Leader” Kim Jong Il was recognized throughout the world, but his country remains sealed as his third son and chosen heir, Kim Jong Eun, consolidates power. Few foreigners are allowed in, and few North Koreans are able to leave. North Korea is hungry, bankrupt, and armed with nuclear weapons. It is also a human rights catastrophe. Between 150,000 and 200,000 people work as slaves in its political prison camps. These camps are clearly visible in satellite photographs, yet North Korea’s government denies they exist. Harden’s harrowing narrative exposes this hidden dystopia, focusing on an extraordinary young man who came of age inside the highest security prison in the highest security state. Escape from Camp 14 offers an unequalled inside account of one of the world’s darkest nations. It is a tale of endurance and courage, survival and hope. From the Trade Paperback edition.
