Whistling Wings

Whistling Wings

Author: Laura Goering Narrator: Donna German Release Date: 01/08/2008

Can a swan survive without winter migration? Marcel, a young tundra swan, is tired from the first half of a winter migration. One thousand miles is a long way to fly-too long for Marcel, so he hides in the rushes to stay behind while his parents and the flock continue south. But with the lake nearly frozen over, he soon realizes that he is not cut out for life on ice. Other animals offer advice about how to survive the winter, but their ways of living aren't right for the swan. Hungry and scared, he falls asleep - only to be awakened by a big surprise! The "For Creative Minds" educational section includes "Tundra Swan Fun Facts" and a "Tundra Swan Life Cycle Sequencing Activity."

Did you know that that's not even the fastest animal there is? This "dashing dozen" of nature's speediest species examines the fastest on land, air, and sea. This story will resonate with children taking standardized tests...one size does not fit all!

What's the Weather? A What, Why or Where Book

What's the Weather? A What, Why or Where Book

Author: Editorial Narrator: Donna German Release Date: 01/09/2020

Weather changes daily. Sometimes it can even change from one moment to another-like a sudden storm. Weather affects our daily lives from what we wear to what outdoor activities (or lack thereof) we can do. Learning about weather and how to dress and prepare for it is an important skill to learn. Maybe even more important is the skill of observation. By asking simple questions, children become engaged and can start to observe and make correlations about the weather around them so they will understand how the weather impacts their lives.
