Imaginations will soar from the forest floor up through the canopy and back down again, following the circle of life in this clever adaptation of the song ´´The Green Grass Grew All Around´´. The jungle comes alive as children learn about a wide variety of the animals (jaguars, emerald tree boas, leafcutter ants, sloths, poison dart frogs, toucans, and bats) and plants (kapok trees, liana vines, and bromeliads) living in the lush Amazon rainforest. Delve even deeper into the jungle using sidebars and the ´´For Creative Minds´´ educational section. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Donna German.

The Bird children have an idyllic childhood: a picture-book cottage in a country village, a warm, cosy kitchen filled with love and laughter, sun-drenched afternoons in a rambling garden. But one Easter weekend a tragedy strikes the Bird family that is so devastating it tears them apart. Many years later something will call them home, back to the house they grew up in - and to what really happened that Easter weekend all those years ago. 1. Language: English.

I have loved Channing Monroe all my life. In first grade, he asked for my Trapper Keeper. I hit him in the head with it. Third grade, we were best friends. We kissed in seventh grade. In eighth grade, he turned into a bad boy and the rest was a tumultuous storm. Growing up, the problem was never love for us. Bad times. Good times. There were times when I felt our love in every inch of my body, vibrating, making me feel like it could bring me back to life. The problem was us. The problem is that we´re living in two different worlds now. Fallen Crest and its millionaires for me. Roussou and their criminals for him. I was thriving in mine and he was running his. But... But there were nights I felt we couldn´t be further apart than we were, and there were nights I felt we shared the same heartbeat. When was it time? When was it time to either sacrifice, make a change, or walk away from the boy I grew up with? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Blake Richard, Summer Morton.

Emma Gannon was born in 1989, the year the World Wide Web was conceived, so she´s literally grown up alongside the Internet. There´ve been late night chat room experiments, sexting from a Nokia and dubious webcam exchanges. And let´s not forget catfishing, MSN, digital friendships and #feminism. She was basically social networking way before it was a thing - and she´s even made a successful career from it. Ctrl Alt Delete is Emma´s painfully funny and timely memoir, in which she aims to bring a little hope to anybody who has played out a significant part of their life online. Her confessions, revelations and honesty may even make you log off social media (at least for an hour). 1. Language: English. Narrator: Emma Gannon.
