Do you get books from a public library in your town or even in your school library? In many remote areas of the world, there are no library buildings. In many countries, books are delivered in unusual way: by bus, boat, elephant, donkey, train, even by wheelbarrow. Why would librarians go to the trouble of packing books on the backs of elephants or driving miles to deliver books by bus? Because, as one librarian in Azerbaijan says, "Books are as important to us as air or water!" This is the intriguing photo essay, a celebration of books, readers, and libraries.

EL Education's ELA Curriculum combines rigorous, standards-aligned content with effective instructional practice. Developed by teachers for teachers, the curriculum draws on EL Education's 20 years of experience to engage teachers and students in active learning every day. It covers 160 days of instruction across a school year, developed down to the level of daily lessons, and addresses a full year of English Language Arts instruction in four modules. Students get excited about learning through authentic texts, compelling topics and ownership of their own learning. Teachers get a vision of the instructional practices that support a standards-aligned classroom and the tools to create it. Originally commissioned by New York State when EL Education went by the name Expeditionary Learning, the version of the ELA curriculum posted on New York's Engage NY website has been downloaded over 6 million times. This edition has been updated with alignment to nationwide Common Core standards, and has been adopted by schools and districts in 43 states + Washington, D.C. Grade 3: Module 1 uses literature and informational text such as My Librarian Is a Camel by Margriet Ruurs to introduce students to the power of literacy. This module is intentionally designed to encourage students to embrace a love of reading. Students examine the main message in literature about individuals and groups from world communities who have gone to great lengths to access education. Students will assess their own strengths and needs as readers, set goals, and begin the yearlong journey of becoming proficient and independent readers who have their own "reading superpowers." A complete set of materials for Grade 3: Module 1 should include the Teacher Guides (978-1683621607), one Student Workbook (978-1683620037) per student, and the required trade books for this module.

At a school that sits on the edge of the Sahara, students are learning to speak English from a teacher who stands in front of a Webcam in North America. These students are learning in a virtual classroom. In another part of the world, kids aren't waiting to ride the bus to school—they are waiting to hop in a boat that will take them to a school that floats on a river. And some kids don't mind heights, especially those who attend a school on the slope of a mountain in the Himalayas, in one of the most remote corners of the earth. Margriet Ruurs contacted teachers and volunteers, many of whom took cameras in hand to photograph their schools and students. In this lively photo-essay, readers get to know students—from the arid plains of southern Afghanistan to the rain forests of Guatemala—who are pursuing their dreams of a brighter future.

Seagulls And Camels, And Other Tales That Touch The Heart is a delightful montage of a lifetime of stories, reflections, and observations by the author on his way to becoming an octogenarian (a person who is in his eighties). It is a feel-good book for replaced, unhurried, recreational reading, and readers will appreciate the author's intentional avoidance of politics, gloom and doom, confrontational or divisive issues of any kind, or the advocating of any sort of "causes". This book is for sheer time-out enjoyment.

Fiona Sweeney wants to do something that matters, and she chooses to make her mark in the arid bush of northeastern Kenya. By helping to start a traveling library, she hopes to bring the words of Homer, Hemingway, and Dr. Seuss to far-flung tiny communities where people live daily with drought, hunger, and disease. Her intentions are honorable, and her rules are firm: due to the limited number of donated books, if any one of them is not returned, the bookmobile will not return. But, encumbered by her Western values, Fi does not understand the people she seeks to help. And in the impoverished small community of Mididima, she finds herself caught in the middle of a volatile local struggle when the bookmobile's presence sparks a dangerous feud between the proponents of modernization and those who fear the loss of traditional ways.

A History of Reading

In this marvelous book, acclaimed around the world, Alberto Manguel takes us on a fascinating exploration of what it means to be a reader of books. A History of Reading is a brilliant reminder of why we cherish the act of reading--despite distractions throughout the ages, from the Inquisition to the lures of cyberspace. He shows us what happens when we read; who we become; and how reading teaches us how to live. He reminds us that we live in books as well as among them--how we find our own stories in books, and traces of our lives. He shows us how our reading habits have developed over the centuries, and how, ever since humans first transcribed their thoughts and deeds on clay and papyrus, the act of reading is itself a part of being human. Alberto Manguel is a lover of reading, and he brings a lover's delight and enthusiasm to his history of reading. His stories take us across a breathtaking range of time and experiences. From the invention of the reader to Pliny the Younger's first lip-synch in history; from the moment when Alexander the Great's conquering army watched, amazed, as their captain read a letter from his mother--but silently--to himself!--to reading clubs in medieval France; from the Great Camel Library of the Grand Vizir of Persia, who trained his camels to walk in alphabetical order, to the ancient delights of bedroom reading and the modern horrors of book burning in Nazi Germany; from cuneiform and codexes to the invention of printing and to Penguins; from the creation of eyeglasses to the hypnotics of hypertext--the story of reading is laid open here for our pleasure.
