First Ladies are more than just wives of U.S. presidents! This fun, kid-friendly book of trivia and history shows that First Ladies help influence America in ways both large and small. Did you know that Mary Todd Lincoln hated slavery and helped to end it in America? Or that Edith Wilson helped decode secret messages during World War I? How about that Sarah Polk didn’t let anyone dance in the White House while she was first lady? It’s true! In addition to being hostesses, advocates, ambassadors, activists, patriots, and role-models, each first lady put her own stamp on the White House—and on our country. In this fun-filled, fact-filled book, you can find out just what made each first lady unique and why they were so important. As it turns out, first ladies are a pretty big deal after all! This book is perfect for fans of So You Want to be President? and Rad American Women from A-Z:Rebels, Trailbalzers, and Visionaries who Shaped Our History...And Our Future, and is a great entry point to discussing elections, inaugurations, and all aspects of the White House with children. Praise for What's the Big Deal About First Ladies: ★ "A breezy way to, as Abigail Adams urged, 'remember the ladies.'" --Kirkus Reviews, starred review "This title does an excellent job of highlighting the important roles that these women played throughout history....A delightful introduction to America’s first ladies for elementary U.S. history collections." --School Library Journal "Packed with interesting facts and illustrated with style, this upbeat overview of America’s First Ladies will entertain kids intrigued by history." --Booklist

Um 1950 entdeckten James Watson und Francis Crick die Struktur der DNA (Desoxyribonukleinsäure). Die Erkenntnis, dass alle Lebewesen - ob Insekt oder Pilz, Mensch oder Pflanze - den gleichen genetischen Code verwenden, gilt als eindrucksvoller Beweis für die Evolutionstheorie. Doch wie und wann begann das Leben? Was haben kernlose Weintrauben mit der Evolution zu tun? Wann lernte der Mensch den aufrechten Gang? Auf diese und viele weitere Fragen bekommen Kinder in Band 50 der grossen Wissensreihe memo Antworten. Faszinierende Bilder von urzeitlichen Tieren, lebenden Fossilien und bahnbrechenden Experimenten kombiniert mit gut gegliederten, kurzen Texten machen das Thema für Kinder leicht verständlich. Auch schwierigere Sachverhalte werden so begreifbar. Rubriken wie "Erstaunliche Fakten", "Fragen und Antworten" oder "Rekordverdächtig" vertiefen das vermittelte Wissen. Ein Glossar am Ende des Buches gibt noch einmal einen Überblick über das ganze Thema. Ideal auch für Referate und Schulprojekte. (Quelle: Homepage des Verlags).

Pioneering North Woods doctor Kate Pelham Newcomb comes to life in this addition to the Badger Biographies series for young readers. Born in 1885, Kate Pelham was suppose to grow up to be a proper young lady in Boston, but despite her father's wishes she was determined to be a doctor. After medical school, her husband's health brought them to the clean air of northern Wisconsin and before long Kate knew every back road and cabin in the North Woods. She visited patients by snowmobile, by canoe, and by snowshoe and never sent a bill. Instead she was paid in firewood and vegtables. But what Kate dreamed of more than anything for her patients was a hospital. And that's when the kids of the community got involved. They set out to collect a million pennies - $10,000 - to help Dr. Kate build a hospital. As the news spread, coins poured in from countries across the globe. Students carted bushels of pennies, and Dr. Kate read thousands of letters cheering on her effort. Her dream came true in 1954 when the Lakeland Memorial Hospital opened its doors. Young readers will warm to Kate's spirit of compassion and never-say-never attitude.
