Read and find out about the ups and downpours of the water cycle! With colorful illustrations and engaging text, Down Comes the Rain is a fascinating look into the stages of the water cycle. After rain comes down, the sun comes out and dries the puddles. But the water isn’t gone. The heat from the sun has turned it into water vapor—it has evaporated. Eventually, this moisture in the air condenses to form new clouds. Soon the rain will fall again. Featuring rich vocabulary bolded throughout the text, this brand-new edition of Franklyn M. Branley's 1997 title includes original illustrations by Mary Ann Fraser. This book also includes a glossary and a find out more section with an activity about the water cycle. Both the text and the artwork were newly vetted for accuracy by Don W. Hen and Dr. Sonia M Kreidenweis, Professor of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University. This is a Level 2 Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science title, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards. Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.

After my sister died, I tried to write poems to ease the pain. As I wrote these poems, I felt whole again. It was a way to ease my mind. Knowing that my sister was saved and gave her life to Christ before she died, it made it easier to cope with because I know she’s in a better place. These poems were written with joy and a whole lot of pain, but I know I will see her once again. Losing loved ones is a lot of grief, but if we stick to our beliefs, we can go through all trials and tribulations. These poems are a tribute to life’s beginning and ending and life’s many celebrations.

Von Müttern und Töchtern, Lügen und Geheimnissen Eine Handvoll Fotos und ein Stapel selbst besprochener Tonbänder, das ist Rosamonds Vermächtnis an Imogen, die blinde Enkelin ihrer Cousine Beatrix. Auf den Bändern erzählt Rosamond die Familiengeschichte und findet nach und nach Worte für jenes Unglück, das zu Imogens Erblindung führte. – Ein bewegender Roman über drei Generationen von Frauen und über das verzweifelte Streben nach Liebe und dem Lebensglück. »Ich möchte dir, Imogen, einen Begriff von deiner Geschichte vermitteln. Du sollst ein Gefühl dafür bekommen, wo du herkommst und welches die Triebkräfte waren, die dich hervorgebracht haben.« So beginnen die Aufzeichnungen, die Rosamond hinterlassen hat. Anhand von zwanzig Fotografien erinnert sie sich an die tragische Geschichte ihrer Familie. In deren Zentrum steht Imogens Großmutter Beatrix, die unter der fehlenden Liebe ihrer Mutter litt und deshalb früh von zu Hause flüchtete; die die selbst erlebte Gefühlskälte an ihre Tochter weitergab und so den Weg zu dem schrecklichen Unglück ebnete, das Imogen für immer das Augenlicht nahm. Ein bewegender Familienroman über drei Generationen von Frauen und deren Sehnsucht nach Liebe – und die poetische Erkundung eines fatalen Vermächtnisses. Jonathan Coe gelingt es, in diesem dichten Roman emotional fesselnde Figuren zu entwickeln und ein sensibles Bild von der besonderen Dynamik der Mutter-Tochter-Beziehung zu zeichnen. Die Geschichte des blinden Mädchens Imogen, die Schilderungen der Momente intensiven Glücks zwischen Rosamond und Beatrix und die Aufdeckung der zerstörerischen Macht eines dunklen Familiengeheimnisses wird kein Leser je wieder vergessen.

#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER Far more than a superb memoir about the highest levels of professional tennis, Open is the engrossing story of a remarkable life. Andre Agassi had his life mapped out for him before he left the crib. Groomed to be a tennis champion by his moody and demanding father, by the age of twenty-two Agassi had won the first of his eight grand slams and achieved wealth, celebrity, and the game’s highest honors. But as he reveals in this searching autobiography, off the court he was often unhappy and confused, unfulfilled by his great achievements in a sport he had come to resent. Agassi writes candidly about his early success and his uncomfortable relationship with fame, his marriage to Brooke Shields, his growing interest in philanthropy, and—described in haunting, point-by-point detail—the highs and lows of his celebrated career.
