Finding out about solar energy Cover
Matt Doeden
The sun provides lots of energy, most of which isn't used by plants or animals. How can we harness solar energy to create electricity? This book introduces students to how solar energy is produced and how it is used as an energy source that provides power for essentials and luxuries that they use every day. Graphics help explain the process of harvesting solar energy. After explaining what the resource is and how it is used, the book covers the pros and cons of using solar energy. Environmental impacts factor into the discussion of solar energy harvesting and use, as well as accessibility and renewability of solar energy.

The closer : young readers edition Cover
Mariano Rivera
Wayne R Coffey
Sue Corbett
Mariano Rivera never dreamed of becoming a professional athlete. He didn't grow up collecting baseball cards, playing Little League, or cheering on his home team at the World Series. He had never heard of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, or Mickey Mantle. One day, that all changed. From a childhood playing pickup games in Panama to an epic career with the New York Yankees, Mariano's rise to greatness has been anything but ordinary. He's the guy on the mound who doesn't hear the crowd, just the sound of the ump calling, Strike! The teammate you can rely on, even when the bases are loaded in the bottom of the ninth. Whether you know him as Mo or as the Sandman, Mariano is The Closer, and this is his story. Full of tips for young athletes and tales from the Yankee clubhouse, The Closer (Young Readers Edition) is an inspiring story of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication that have defined the life of a baseball legend.
