Reading the World’s Stories is volume 5 in the Bridges to Understanding series of annotated international youth literature bibliographies sponsored by the United States Board on Books for Young People. USBBY is the United States chapter of the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY), a Switzerland-based nonprofit whose mission is bring books and children together. The series promotes sharing international children’s books as a way to facilitate intercultural understanding and meet new literary voices. This volume follows Children’s Books from Other Countries (1998), The World though Children’s Books (2002), Crossing Boundaries with Children’s Books (2006), and Bridges to Understanding: Envisioning the World through Children’s Books (2011) and acts as a companion book to the earlier titles. Centered around the theme of the importance of stories, the guide is a resource for discovering more recent global books that fit many reading tastes and educational needs for readers aged 0-18 years. Essays by storyteller Anne Pellowski, author Beverley Naidoo, and academic Marianne Martens offer a variety of perspectives on international youth literature. This latest installment in the series covers books published from 2010-2014 and includes English-language imports as well as translations of children’s and young adult literature first published outside of the United States. These books are supplemented by a smaller number of culturally appropriate books from the US to help fill in gaps from underrepresented countries. The organization of the guide is geographic by region and country. All of the more than 800 entries are recommended, and many of the books have won awards or achieved other recognition in their home countries. Forty children’s book experts wrote the annotations. The entries are indexed by author, translator, illustrator, title, and subject. Back matter also includes international book awards, important organizations and research collections, and a selected directory of publishers known for publishing books from other countries.

Help students think and engage like scientists! BIOLOGY: THE DYNAMIC SCIENCE, Second Edition, provides students with a deep understanding of the core concepts in Biology, building a strong foundation for additional study. In a fresh presentation, the authors explain complex ideas clearly and describe how biologists collect and interpret evidence to test hypotheses about the living world. Russell, Hertz, and McMillan spark students' curiosity about living systems instead of burying it under a mountain of disconnected facts. They engage students with what scientists know about the living world, how they know it, and what they still need to learn. By conveying the author's passion for biological research, the text helps students cultivate the mental habits of scientists. The accompanying Aplia for Biology interactively guides students through the thought processes and procedures that scientists use in their research and helps them apply and synthesize specific content from the text. Overall, students learn how to think like scientists and engage in the scientific process themselves.

Volume 1 of the series Changing the Global Approach to Medicine introduced the concept of RNA Vector Therapy, the innovative utilization of virus-like devices to deliver RNA molecules to protein deficient cells to provide a directed medical therapy. Volume 2 greatly expands this approach to configuring enhanced virus-like transport devices to deliver various forms of therapeutic materials to specific cell types. Medial Vector Therapy includes the delivery of DNA, chemotherapy and other drug molecules, oxygen, and nutrients as well as various forms of RNA to the cells that require such therapeutic interventions. This ingenious new approach to the management of challenging diseases has the distinct advantage of administering a broad spectrum of therapeutic elements directly to the cells in need, but dramatically limits the side effects by not exposing other cells in the body to the potential harmful effects of such therapies. Also introduced in this text are the innovative concepts the Quantum Gene and the Quadsistor.
