Profiles in Courage

Icon: 

During 1954-1955, John F. Kennedy, then a U.S. Senator, chose eight of his historical colleagues to profile for their acts of astounding integrity in the face of overwhelming opposition. These heroes include John Quincy Adams, Daniel Webster, and Sam Houston.

The Inferno of Dante

Icon: 

Dramatic, intense, and gripping, The Inferno of Dante is an astonishing masterpiece that no listener can afford to miss. Dante Alighieri's magnificent story of his journey through the infinite horrors of Hell—and past the gates inscribed with the timeless words, Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here—has captured the imagination of the world for centuries.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Icon: 

Harry, wand in hand, is in his sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. A great war is raging between good and evil, the "Second War" prophesied at the conclusion of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. There is no doubt that He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named has returned. The New York Times Book Review praises the author: "... funny, moving and impressive ...Like Harry Potter, [J.K. Rowling] has soared beyond her modest Muggle surroundings to achieve something quite special."

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Icon: 

Now 15 years old and in his fifth year at Hogwort's, Harry has much on his mind. Terrible nightmares are interrupting his sleep, forcing him to wake up screaming. Worse still, the terrifying presence of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named is growing stronger. Add to this the disappearance of Hagrid and the fast-approaching Ordinary Wizarding Level exams, and the boy wizard's fifth year promises to be a great challenge.

Kit includes paperback book and audio CD.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Icon: 

The fourth book in the internationally best-selling Harry Potter series. During the summer, 14-year-old Harry Potter happily joins the Weasleys at the Quidditch World Cup, which is held in England this year. He happily enters his fourth year at Hogwarts Academy, where he can once again see Cho Chang, who has captured his attention. He is even happy to be part of a competition between two rival schools of magic. But he is not happy that dreams have set his scar to burning again, a sure sign that his dark enemy, is growing stronger.

Where the Sidewalk Ends

Icon: 

If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer,
A wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er,
A magic bean buyer...

Come in... for where the sidewalk ends, Shel Silverstein's world begins. You'll meet a boy who turns into a TV set, and a girl who eats a whale. The Unicorn and the Bloath live there, and so does Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout who will not take the garbage out. It is a place where you wash your shadow and plant diamond gardens, a place where shoes fly, sisters are auctioned off, and crocodiles go to the dentist.
