              The life of little frog Tad Ferocious is one of adventure and excitement! It all starts when the crickets show up and eat too much. They also make too much noise, according to Tads pa. The frogs and the crickets must come to an agreementand they do, just in time for Tads legs to ...grow in. He better be careful, though; the local farm boy loves eating frog legs! Tads best friend is Susie, and he likes to pick on her a lot. Together, they eat Fly Pie and drink spider juice. They play with other frogs along the shore of the pond, exploring dead logs and climbing new trees. They even make frog angels in the slimy mud. One day, though, Tad notices something different. The air seems a bit chillier than usual. His pa takes him into the forest and explains that frogs hide in the woods when the weather gets cold. Together, Tad, his family, and his friends prepare their hidden nests and build up cozy places to stay. Susie is always close by, and as winter descends, its exciting to think that one day, Tad wont share his den with Ma and Pa but, instead, alone with his best pal Susie.

              It is another beautiful day in Patagonia as a colony of penguins snuggles on the iceberg they call home. Little Milo is nestled next to his mother, Winter, while his father, Tux, is out hunting for food. But when a big crack in the iceberg suddenly separates Milo and his mother f...rom Tux and all the food, it seems that all hope is lost when the current begins to carry the icebergs even further apart. The iceberg is simply too heavy for the penguins to push back together-or so they think. While battling the current, the penguins must band together as a team and wait for the right time to implement their new plan. When one plan doesn't work, the penguins brainstorm to create another one. But it turns out they are not the only creatures with big challenges. Through perseverance, helping others, leading, inspiring, networking, and growing, the penguins and their creature friends must somehow find a way to overcome their obstacles, no matter how difficult. In this charming animal story, a colony of penguins and other creatures help children learn that being determined, working with others for a common goal, and embracing differences is what helps us succeed in life.

              Right after author Bruce M. Barrett graduated from high school at Peacock Military Academy in San Antonio, he accompanied his father and mother to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where his dad was to be the military attache to the US ambassador to Saudi Arabia. Flight from Arabia recounts ...Bruce's adventures in Saudi Arabia, including accompanying his dad on some pretty hair-raising then-secret missions and his trip home to go to college. Bruce's father assigned him to accompany a general's daughter back to the States, and they wound up on an air force cargo plane traveling through Egypt, Libya, and Pakistan, among other places. Together they explored the cultures and their budding friendship along the way. Bruce shares his memories of Saudi Arabia and its people from the heyday of the nation's alliance with the United States. This memoir recalls the adventure of a lifetime as two college-bound military brats in the mid-1960s take a military flight from the Middle East across Africa and Europe to the States.

              For the persevering penguin family, happiness means being together. They are determined to work hard to be with one another and their friends-even when they must swim against the current to do so. Their friends the otters know they are never alone. When the waters are murky, they... are still focused on helping each other and their friends. The leading lions are one pride, one team, and all have different strengths. Although their pals the inspiring iguanas sometimes feel a little scared, they must believe in themselves, go out on a limb, and do things that make them uncomfortable. The networking nightingales alert one another so that they can all soar. The growing gerbil feels like he is just running on his wheel, going nowhere. But when his cage door opens, he finally gets his chance to grow by being with others who are not like him at all. Written and illustrated by children who truly relate to their young audience, this book is a fun and engaging way for little ones to embrace diversity, inclusion, and what it means to be successful global citizens.
