'You know what it's like. Dark at teatime and sleeping indoors: nothing ever happens in the winter holidays.' Or so Nancy thinks. Then the lake ices over completely and the Swallows and Amazons, along with Dick and Dorothea - ‘the D’s’ - plan a race to find the North Pole. How will they reach it if they can’t sail? By sledges of course! But when a blizzard blows up and there is a mix up about signals, the D’s disappear into the Arctic night. Disaster looms. Can the Swallows and Amazons save their friends? BACKSTORY: Crack the Swallows and Amazons' code and learn all about the real Arctic exploration that inspired this book.

Interdisciplinary Activities That Promote Success
Author: Amy Baad,Christina Cooper,Floretta Latham
Pubpsher: Teaching and Learning Company
These high-quality seasonal activities are designed to help children develop visual, auditory, gross motor, and communication skills. Each session, one for Christmas and one for Valentines Day, includes five theme-based activity centers. For easy use, the simple, fun activities include separate instructions for the teacher and the children.
An adolescent 17-year old boy who is a member of a Christian youth group goes with them for a 12-day skiing holiday in the mountains. He is an introverted nerd, shy and inhibited, brought up by strict and protective parents. But he is full of inner energy and emotions which he would like to show and share. He is in love, but has no experience and is puzzled by the complexities of building a relationship. He is aware of his boundaries and limitations and is anxious to overcome them. But this is not very easy for him. The story takes the subjective viewpoint of this boy. The reader follows his thoughts and inner reflections throughout these twelve days of that winter holiday in the mountains. Misunderstandings, mistakes in dealing with others and a general inexperience in human interactions place big obstacles in his way. But he is learning and will eventually be able to overcome the wall that seems to surround him. Sportive skiing, nightly cemetery visits and lots of snow set the background of this story.
Presents read-aloud stories, poems, playlets, art projects, ready-to-go games, easy recipes, literature links, and more to help teachers and their students understand and appreciate the traditions of Hanukkah, Christmas, Las Posadas, Kwanzaa, and Chinese New Year.
