Timberwolf Hunt
The Timberwolves have a new coach, but unfortunately, they also have the coach's son, who is a terrible hockey player. The team is on the hunt for the playoffs, but Eldridge just hurts the team. Jonny Maverick is just as angry as his teammates until he learns something important about the coach's son.

Six Dots
Louis Braille was just five years old when he lost his sight. He was a clever boy, determined to live like everyone else, and what he wanted more than anything was to be able to read. Even at the school for the blind in Paris, there were no books for him. And so he invented his own alphabet--a whole new system for writing that could be read by touch. A system so ingenious that it is still used by the blind community today.

Great
A story of teamwork with a positive message, featuring Wayne Gretzky and his dad Coach Wally. Taylor is excited when he makes the hockey team, Wayne's team, the boy they are already calling The Great One. Taylor wants to be great too, but he's still got a lot to learn. Lucky for him, Coach Wally is in his corner, guiding him through the ups and downs of being part of a hockey team, and being the best player he can be. As Coach Wally says, if you have a good time, work hard and do your best, "that is all that matters.".

The Girl Who Drank the Moon
An epic fantasy about a young girl raised by a witch, a swamp monster, and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, who must unlock the powerful magic buried deep inside her. Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the forest, Xan, is kind and gentle. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster named Glerk and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, Fyrian. Xan rescues the abandoned children and delivers them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey. One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this enmagicked girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own.

Dayenu
A tribute to the Passover celebration combines the festive cheer of a traditional Passover song with a simple retelling of the exodus from Egypt to Israel.

It's Seder Time
Photographs and easy-to-read text portray children in a Jewish preschool as they prepare for and participate in a Passover Seder, then act out the Passover story. Includes directions for making Torah masks.

The Story of Passover
Tells the story of the enslavement of the Children of Israel by the pharaoh, the coming of Moses, the ten plagues that struck Egypt, and the delivery of the Children of Israel from slavery, the event that became known as Passover.
