The perfect combination to engage and entertain readers, the series features real-world science along with action and a mystery that will leave kids guessing until the end, making these books ideal for STEM education. In the series opener, Jack and the Geniuses: At The Bottom of The World , readers meet Jack and his foster siblings, Ava and Matt, who are orphans. But they're not your typical kind of orphans--they're geniuses . Well, Ava and Matt are, which sometimes makes life difficult for 1twelve-year-old Jack. Ava speaks multiple languages and builds robots for fun, and Matt is into astronomy and a whiz at math. As for Jack, it's hard to stand out when he's surrounded by geniuses all the time. When the kids try to spy on Dr. Hank Witherspoon, one of the world's leading scientists, they end up working for him in his incredible laboratory. Soon, Hank and the kids travel to Antarctica for a prestigious science competition, but they find that all is not as it seems: A fellow scientist has gone missing, and so has any trace of her research. Could someone be trying to use her findings to win the contest? It's up to Jack, Ava, and Matt to find the missing scientist and discover who's behind it all--before it's too late. Integrating real science facts with humor and suspense, and featuring an ensemble cast of loveable boy and girl characters, this uniquely engaging series is an irresistible chemical reaction for middle-grade readers. With easy-to-read language presented in a fun, motivating, and accessible way, this series opener is a great book for both inquisitive kids and reluctant readers. The book also includes information about the science discussed and used to solve the mystery, as well as a cool science project about density that kids can do at home or in the classroom. Bill Nye's brand new talk show series for Netflix, "Bill Nye Saves the World" is set to launch in Spring 2017.</p> </div> </div> </div> Books Movies Music Kids What's New Bill Nye Sat, 15 Apr 2017 06:00:00 +0000 TracieP 39762 at http://www.palatinelibrary.org Point Guard http://www.palatinelibrary.org/kids/books-movies-music/point-guard <div class="field field-type-text field-field-item-number"> <div class="field-label">Bib Number:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> b1851617 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-isbn"> <div class="field-label">ISBN:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 9781481410038 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-cover-art"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_cover_art" width="264" height="400" alt="" src="http://www.palatinelibrary.org/sites/default/files/pointguard.jpg?1486229405" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-downloaded-jacket-image"> <div class="field-label">Downloaded Jacket Image:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> sites/default/files/39764.jpg </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-annotation"> <div class="field-label">Annotation from Catalog:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Gus and Cassie have always been on the same team off the field, but in this third novel in New York Times bestselling author Mike Lupica's Home Team series can they stay friends when they're on the same court? Everyone assumes that Gus, whose family is from the Dominican Republic, is a baseball guy. But this year Gus is even more excited about basketball than any other sport he's ever played. He's been practicing some new moves and lately he's more surprised when he misses his shot than when he scores. Plus now that he's convinced his friend Teddy to try out for the team and Jack's shoulder is healed, it looks like Walton's home team will be unstoppable. But this isn't going to be the season Gus expected, because their team is getting a new player--and she just happens to be one of his best friends. Gus knows Cassie is more than good enough to compete on the boys' team, and besides they really do need a point guard, so why isn't he able to shake the feeling that she belongs on their bleachers rather than their bench? And to make matters worse, with their center Steve Kerrigan constantly making comments about his Dominican heritage, and Steve's dad voicing his views on immigration as he runs for office, Gus is starting to wonder if he really belongs in Walton after all. Can Gus find a way to bring the home team together both on and off the court, or will all these prejudices block their shot at a winning season?</p> </div> </div> </div> Books Movies Music Kids What's New Mike Lupica Sat, 15 Apr 2017 06:00:00 +0000 TracieP 39764 at http://www.palatinelibrary.org Amina's Voice http://www.palatinelibrary.org/kids/books-movies-music/aminas-voice <div class="field field-type-text field-field-item-number"> <div class="field-label">Bib Number:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> b1927143 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-isbn"> <div class="field-label">ISBN:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 9781481492065 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-cover-art"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_cover_art" width="264" height="400" alt="" src="http://www.palatinelibrary.org/sites/default/files/aminasvoice.jpg?1488335949" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-downloaded-jacket-image"> <div class="field-label">Downloaded Jacket Image:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> sites/default/files/40275.jpg </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-annotation"> <div class="field-label">Annotation from Catalog:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>A Pakistani-American Muslim girl struggles to stay true to her family's vibrant culture while simultaneously blending in at school after tragedy strikes her community in this sweet and moving middle grade novel from the award-winning author of It's Ramadan, Curious George and Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns .
