There's an Owl in the Shower

There's an Owl in the Shower

Author: Jean Craighead George Narrator: Ed Sala Release Date: 01/09/2013

Borden Watson goes to the giant redwood forest for one reason: to shoot spotted owls. They are the reason his dad has lost his job as a logger, and Borden hates them. But when he comes across a baby owl who has fallen out of its nest, Borden can't resist the tiny elf-like creature. And luckily, this owlet doesn't have spots, so it must be a barred owl-not the enemy. Borden takes the little owl home and names it Bardy. Before long, Bardy wins over each member of Borden's owl-hating family. Even his father pitches in to take care of the hungry owlet. But what will happen when they find out that Bardy is really a spotted owl? Award-winning nature writer Jean Craighead George weaves valuable ecological information into this heartwarming story of a family's love affair with a very special little owl. Young listeners will be fascinated as they learn about owls and their endangered forest habitat.

Through the pleasure of the speed, height and grace that only a horse can give, Colt begins to mature, pushing his body further than he ever thought it could go and becoming more to his new step-family and the world in general than a 'crippled kid.' Edgar Award-winning author Nancy Springer has created a moving story of a young boy's struggle to be an ordinary kid.

Cowboy Slim

Author: Julie Danneberg, Margot Apple Narrator: Ed Sala Release Date: 01/10/2006

When veteran cowhands find his pile of poems, they say he's not a real cowboy and make him ride behind the cows. And when he realizes how poor his riding, roping, and whipping skills are, Slim heads for home-thinking he's a failure. But just then, a violent thunderstorm stampedes the herd toward Deadman's Canyon and prompts Slim to do something the other cowboys couldn't do. Popular author Julie Danneberg has written a variety of innovative works for children-including a delightful book on Colorado history and geography.

The Boys' War: Confederate and Union Soldiers Talk About the Civil War

The Boys' War: Confederate and Union Soldiers Talk About the Civil War

Author: Jim Murphy Narrator: Ed Sala Release Date: 01/06/2006

We all know about the famous generals and the major battles of the Civil War. But for the soldiers who actually fought, the war was all too real. It was especially traumatic for the thousands of soldiers who ranged in age from 10 to 15. Some young soldiers joined the fray to escape the boredom of farm work or to "set the South straight." Many of them kept diaries and wrote letters home. Through their eyes, we see what life was like on the edge of chaos. Some of their writing describes the gruesome details of forced marches and deaths on the battlefield. Balanced with anecdotes of practical jokes they played on one another and interesting people they met, their stories touch our minds and hearts. Ed Sala's interpretation of this well-documented history brings the Civil War to life in a way that few historians could. These everyday details of the war, told in the straightforward language of the young, provide a moving, unforgettable history lesson.
