Daniel und der Koffer im Oettingerhaus ist ein spannend erzähltes Buch (nicht nur) für Kinder ab 10 Jahren. Daniel erinnert sich an Ferien, die er allein bei seiner Tante verbrachte. Er kannte weder die Tante noch den kleinen Ort und hatte große Bedenken.<br />Eine neue Situation, ein neues Umfeld, neue Menschen und die Unsicherheit des Erwachsenwerdens. Für einen Jungen ist das eine große Herausforderung, aber es ist auch eine Chance, etwas völlig Neues zu erfahren. Die Geschichte befasst sich mit den alltäglichen und den nicht ganz so alltäglichen Probleme, mit denen sich Kinder und auch Erwachsene beschäftigen. Es zeigt, dass auch Unsicherheit und Angst zum Leben gehören.<br />Mit den einsprachigen Kinder- und Jugendbüchern möchte der Friedrich - Maerker - Verlag helfen, die Freude am Lesen an die nächsten Generationen weiterzureichen. Spannende Geschichten mit aktuellen und klassischen Fragen sollen einen Betrag zur Bildung der Jugend leisten.<br /><br />Weitere Informationen zu den Büchern des Friedrich - Maerker - Verlages finden Sie im Internet unter: www.Friedrich-Maerker-Verlag.de

<b>Chelsea Clinton introduces tiny feminists, mini activists and little kids who are ready to take on the world to thirteen inspirational women who never took no for an answer, and who always, inevitably and without fail, <i>persisted</i>.</b><br />  <br /> Throughout American history, there have always been women who have spoken out for what's right, even when they have to fight to be heard. In early 2017, Senator Elizabeth Warren's refusal to be silenced in the Senate inspired a spontaneous celebration of women who persevered in the face of adversity. In this book, Chelsea Clinton celebrates thirteen American women who helped shape our country through their tenacity, sometimes through speaking out, sometimes by staying seated, sometimes by captivating an audience. They all certainly persisted. <br />  <br /> <i>She Persisted</i> is for everyone who has ever wanted to speak up but has been told to quiet down, for everyone who has ever tried to reach for the stars but was told to sit down, and for everyone who has ever been made to feel unworthy or unimportant or small. <br />  <br /> With vivid, compelling art by Alexandra Boiger, this book shows readers that no matter what obstacles may be in their paths, they shouldn't give up on their dreams. Persistence is power.<br />  <br /> This book features: Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller, Clara Lemlich, Nellie Bly, Virginia Apgar, Maria Tallchief, Claudette Colvin, Ruby Bridges, Margaret Chase Smith, Sally Ride, Florence Griffith Joyner, Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Sotomayor--and one special cameo.

“Much like <I>The Boy In the Striped Pajamas</I> or <I>The Book Thief</I>,” this remarkable memoir from Leon Leyson, one of the youngest children to survive the Holocaust on Oskar Schindler’s list, “brings to readers a story of bravery and the fight for a chance to live” (<I >VOYA</I>).<BR><BR>This, the only memoir published by a former Schindler’s 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’s 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—a list that became world renowned: Schindler’s 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’ve ever read.
