<p><b>The ninth book in the bestselling series tells the story of John Wesley Powell, the one-armed geologist who explored the Grand Canyon </b></p><p>John Wesley Powell (1834鈥?902) always had the spirit of adventure in him. As a young man, he traveled all over the United States exploring. When the Civil War began, Powell went to fight for the Union, and even after he lost most of his right arm, he continued to fight until the war was over. In 1869 he embarked with the Colorado River Exploring Expedition, ten men in four boats, to float through Grand Canyon. Over the course of three months, the explorers lost their boats and supplies, nearly drowned, and were in peril on multiple occasions. Ten explorers went in, only six came out. Powell would come to be known as one of the most epic explorers in history! Equal parts gruesome and hilarious, this latest installment in the bestselling series takes readers on an action-packed adventure through American history.</p>

<b>The bestselling memoir by Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai.</b><i><br /><br />I Am Malala. This is my story. </i> <br />Malala Yousafzai was only ten years old when the Taliban took control of her region. They said music was a crime. They said women weren't allowed to go to the market. They said girls couldn't go to school.<br />Raised in a once-peaceful area of Pakistan transformed by terrorism, Malala was taught to stand up for what she believes. So she fought for her right to be educated. And on October 9, 2012, she nearly lost her life for the cause: She was shot point-blank while riding the bus on her way home from school.<br />No one expected her to survive.<br />Now Malala is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. In this Young Readers Edition of her bestselling memoir, which has been reimagined specifically for a younger audience and includes exclusive photos and material, we hear firsthand the remarkable story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world -- and did. <br />Malala's powerful story will open your eyes to another world and will make you believe in hope, truth, miracles and the possibility that one person -- one young person -- can inspire change in her community and beyond.<br /><br />

More than ever, parents and teachers need to create a positive atmosphere for our children in order to help them believe in themselves.<br />That鈥檚 why we鈥檝e proudly created this richly illustrated and inspiring book, <b>Bedtime Inspirational Stories: 50 Amazing Black People Who Changed the World</b>, which highlights the achievements and stories of fifty notable women and men from the 18th century to today. Some were born slaves, some grew up in poverty, and some had physical or emotional challenges. Some were born many years ago, and some are still with us. The stories in the book include those of political activists, scientists, artists, musicians, inventors, businesspeople, Nobel prize winners, and more.<br /><h2>Black History Books for kids</h2>Every single one of these individuals overcame adversities and changed the world, building a way for others to live better lives.

The affirmations found in this book can counteract this effect while allowing them to grow. <br />As parents and educators, there are three important things that we can give to our children: good memories, a good education, and a sense of self-worth. <br />Our team has created this book to help you to achieve these goals. There are no better memories than the times when we share books with our children. We hope that the positive messages and affirmations throughout this book will improve your child鈥檚 self-esteem.

鈥淢uch like <i>The Boy In the Striped Pajamas</i> or <i>The Book Thief</i>,鈥?this remarkable memoir from Leon Leyson, one of the youngest children to survive the Holocaust on Oskar Schindler鈥檚 list, 鈥渂rings to readers a story of bravery and the fight for a chance to live鈥?(<i>VOYA</i>).<br /><br />This, the only memoir published by a former Schindler鈥檚 list child, perfectly captures the innocence of a small boy who goes through the unthinkable. Leon Leyson (born Leib Lezjon) was only ten years old when the Nazis invaded Poland and his family was forced to relocate to the Krakow ghetto. With incredible luck, perseverance, and grit, Leyson was able to survive the sadism of the Nazis, including that of the demonic Amon Goeth, commandant of Plaszow, the concentration camp outside Krakow.<br /> <br />Ultimately, it was the generosity and cunning of one man, Oskar Schindler, who saved Leon Leyson鈥檚 life, and the lives of his mother, his father, and two of his four siblings, by adding their names to his list of workers in his factory鈥攁 list that became world renowned: Schindler鈥檚 list.<br /> <br />Told with an abundance of dignity and a remarkable lack of rancor and venom, <i>The Boy on the Wooden Box</i> is a legacy of hope, a memoir unlike anything you鈥檝e ever read.
