DINOSAUR ATLAS
Lonely Planet Kids

Kids will love unfolding maps and lifting the flaps in this book to reveal amazing facts and illustrations about how dinosaurs lived and where they were discovered. They are also tidbits on famous paleontologists and activities for them to measure themselves against life-size bones, teeth and claws. Created in consultation with Dr David Button, a dinosaur expert at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, and featuring iconic illustrations by James Gilleard, the book is both educational and fun, and will keep them engaged for a long time.


WHAT HAPPEN
Hillary Rodham Clinton

CNN gave a chapter-by-chapter rundown on what Clinton really had to say about her loss in the 2016 race. But if you still prefer to hear from the horse’s mouth, then get the book. The writing is raw, and Clinton offers many insights and personal reflections in this book. Nonetheless, it is still part memoir, part political science treatise and offers a rare look at what it means to be the first woman nominated by a major US political party to run for President.

Join detective Hercule Poirot as he journeys and unravels the mystery behind the murder in classic Agatha Christie style.

 

 


WHERE THE PAST BEGINS
Amy Tan

Bestselling author of The Joy Luck Club and The Valley of Amazement Amy Tan is at her most intimate in revealing the truths and inspirations that underlie her extraordinary fiction. By delving into vivid memories of her traumatic childhood, confessions of self-doubt in her journals, and heartbreaking letters to and from her mother, she gives evidence to all that made it both unlikely and inevitable that she would become a writer.
