Whether you are familiar with the legend of Lilith or hearing it for the first time, you will be carried away by this lavishly illustrated tale of the world’s first woman. This creative retelling of Lilith’s role in humanity’s origins will empower girls and boys to seek relationships based on equality rather than hierarchy. <br /><br /><b>Praise for My Name is Lilith</b><br /><br />"At a time when the rising light of the sacred feminine appears to be suddenly slipping backwards into the shadows, this book is vitally relevant. Lilith, the forgotten first companion of Adam, tells her own love story, and in doing so empowers us to step into the fullness of our divine selves."<br /><br />-Mirabai Starr, Author of <i>CARAVAN OF NO DESPAIR: A Memoir of Loss and Transformation</i> and <i>GOD OF LOVE: A Guide to the Heart of Judaism, Christianity & Islam</i><br /><br />"Haunting, provocative and filled with dreamy, lush illustrations, <i>My Name is Lilith</i> restores the dignity of this much-maligned Biblical figure."<br /><br />-Yona Zeldis McDonough, Fiction Editor, <i>Lilith Magazine </i><br /><br />“I was moved by both the words and illustrations. Monette’s understanding of God's voice within all of us is the only understanding that makes sense to me.”<br />-Les Switzer, Executive Director, Foundation for Contemporary Theology <br /><br />"Girls need beacons of strong womanhood in order to grow up and become one themselves. <i>My Name is Lilith</i> offers girls just this! The untold story of a strong mythical woman, who chose to stay true to her nature despite the price it demanded of her. Fearless and brave, Lilith tips the scales for girls surrounded by submissive models of womanhood, by standing tall and unwavering for who she is." <br /><br />-DeAnna L’am, Author of <i>Becoming Peers – Mentoring Girls into Womanhood</i> and <i>A Diva’s Guide to Getting Your Period</i>

<b>The <i>New York Times</i> bestselling memoir of the heroic young inventor who brought electricity to his Malawian village is now perfect for young readers</b><br /><br />When a terrible drought struck William Kamkwamba's tiny village in Malawi, his family lost all of the season's crops, leaving them with nothing to eat and nothing to sell. William began to explore science books in his village library, looking for a solution. There, he came up with the idea that would change his family's life forever: he could build a windmill. Made out of scrap metal and old bicycle parts, William's windmill brought electricity to his home and helped his family pump the water they needed to farm the land.<br /><br />Retold for a younger audience, this exciting memoir shows how, even in a desperate situation, one boy's brilliant idea can light up the world. Complete with photographs, illustrations, and an epilogue that will bring readers up to date on William's story, this is the perfect edition to read and share with the whole family.

<b>A <i>New York Times</i> Bestseller and National Book Award Winner</b><br /> <i><br /> <i>Jacqueline Woodson, </i>the acclaimed <i>author </i>of </i>Another Brooklyn<i>,<i> tells the moving story of her childhood in mesmerizing verse. </i></i><br />  <br /> Raised in South Carolina and New York, Woodson always felt halfway home in each place. In vivid poems, she shares what it was like to grow up as an African American in the 1960s and 1970s, living with the remnants of Jim Crow and her growing awareness of the Civil Rights movement. Touching and powerful, each poem is both accessible and emotionally charged, each line a glimpse into a child’s soul as she searches for her place in the world. Woodson’s eloquent poetry also reflects the joy of finding her voice through writing stories, despite the fact that she struggled with reading as a child. Her love of stories inspired her and stayed with her, creating the first sparks of the gifted writer she was to become.<br /> <br /><b>A National Book Award Winner<br />A Newbery Honor Book</b><br /> <b>A Coretta Scott King Award Winner</b><br /><br /> Praise for Jacqueline Woodson:<br /> Ms. Woodson writes with a sure understanding of the thoughts of young people, offering a poetic, eloquent narrative that is not simply a story . . . but a mature exploration of grown-up issues and self-discovery.”—<i>The New York Times Book Review<br /><br /></i><br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

<b>A funny, moving, and true story of an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face that's perfect for fans of <i>Wonder—</i>now available in the U.S.</b><br />  <br /> When Robert Hoge was born, he had a tumor the size of a tennis ball in the middle of his face and short, twisted legs. Surgeons removed the tumor and made him a new nose from one of his toes.  Amazingly, he survived—with a face that would never be the same.  <br />  <br /> Strangers stared at him. Kids called him names, and adults could be cruel, too. Everybody seemed to agree that he was “ugly.” But Robert refused to let his face define him. He played pranks, got into trouble, had adventures with his big family, and finally found a sport that was perfect for him to play. And Robert came face to face with the biggest decision of his life, he followed his heart.<br /><br />This poignant memoir about overcoming bullying and thriving with disabilities shows that what makes us “ugly” also makes us who we are. It features a reflective foil cover and black-and-white illustrations throughout.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>
