... AND GIRLS COME OUT TO PLAY If you want to read about the early lives of
some of our most famous women naturalists (there are far fewer famous women
naturalists than men) look at Girls Who Looked Under Rocks by Jennine Atkins.

A Sense of Place

Being outside and connecting with nature is key to young children's learning and wellbeing, especially in a busy, fast-changing and digitalised world. Outdoors, children can more easily connect to their bodies, and learn about themselves and others and how to be in the world. They use their senses to explore, understand and become mindful of the earth and the people around them. But how can Early Years practitioners best support young children as they engage with nature, while also passing on the values about the future of the planet? Annie Davy presents tried-and-tested strategies that support the wellbeing and learning journey of children through mindfulness, with a focus on learning outdoors and connecting with the world. A Sense of Place is an easily accessible guide that will make outdoor learning more interesting and fun, while also supporting children's development of resilience and resourcefulness so that they can survive and thrive in the world as they grow.

Under the Bainin Rock

When twelve-year-old Reid DeBurgh finds a book with a curious symbol on the cover in her upstairs attic, she doesn't realize it holds a powerful mystery. Soon, a family trip takes Reid to the misty and magical land of Ireland, where a kind old seaside shopkeeper gives her a rare bloodstone in a small velvet pouch. Reid doesn't think much of the bloodstone until a boat she is in capsizes. But Reid doesn't drown; she suddenly finds herself in the weird and wondrous underworld of Elddim. While her family frantically searches for Reid, hoping she hasn't been lost to the depths of the sea, the young girl meets Damien and learns that she isn't the only one with a bloodstone-and that the gem may be far more than just beautiful. If she is ever to return to her family, Reid needs to find four treasures. With the help of her newfound friend Damien, Reid must fight evil creatures and release the spell the land has been under for far too long. Filled with all the enchantment and fantasy of a fine Irish folk tale, Dena Blossey's Under the Bainin Rock is a charming story that explores the meaning of heroism and true friendship.

Useful Girl

This evocative novel “weaves together the journeys of a contemporary Montana teen and an 1870s Cheyenne girl” (School Library Journal). After her mother’s sudden death, Erin Douglass is virtually alone in the world. When she witnesses the exhumation of a Cheyenne girl along the side of a dirt road, life in her western town indelibly changes. The girl’s remains, gently wrapped in a faded army coat, with silver thimbles in her right hand, are more than a hundred years old. Though her father, the construction foreman, makes every attempt to keep the discovery quiet, Erin is haunted by questions: How did this young girl end up here, in the middle of nowhere, with no marker and all alone? Who was she? Together with Charlie White Bird, a young member of her father’s road crew from the nearby reservation, Erin is determined to protect the burial ground. She and Charlie meet in secret, knowing that their encounters could threaten their divided communities. But as their commitment to their cause becomes more passionate, so, too, does their relationship. When Erin is faced with a crisis she feels she must bear alone, she runs away. With her mother’s old suitcase and her granddad’s journals on the Indian wars, she sets out. As she moves farther from home, the Cheyenne girl’s story vividly unfolds in her mind—guiding her toward another way out of her predicament.

Retirement Rocks

Retirement ROCKS is an insightful case study of the Golden Age that offers both great new opportunities and deep, heartbreaking challenges. Since June 2007, the author and her gringo have embarked in this stage with enthusiasm and zest: they moved to a small retirement home and experimented with activities and relationships that fit their interests and abilities. Retirement ROCKS because it can be incredibly rewarding and adventurous as we leave behind the normal worries of child-rearing and professional pressures, and it ROCKS because it will inevitably bring the disappearance of treasured loved ones and the health decline that we all must face. This autobiographical personal monograph pictures the daily routines of Maria and Bill in their late sixties and early seventies, detailing the specifics of adapting to their new environment. It has humor and pathos. The family and friends relationships reflect universal themes. It includes travel journals of their world explorations (Scandinavia, Mediterranean, Russia, China, and more), as well as practical examples of their activities and their choices. It will provide entertaining, informative, and useful reading for those approaching and those benefiting from the technological medical advances which have afforded us this unprecedented gift of a long life and a rich old age.
