Image: Face to Face with Whales (Face to Face with Animals), by Flip Nicklin, Linda Nicklin. Publisher: National Geographic Children's Books (August 24, 2010)Whale Day
-- Whales are large, intelligent, aquatic mammals. They breathe air through blowhole(s) into lungs (unlike fish who breathe using gills). Whales have sleek, streamlined bodies that move easily through the water. They are the only mammals, other than manatees (seacows), that live their entire lives in the water, and the only mammals that have adapted to life in the open oceans. Source

-- You slip over the side of your boat, descending deep into the dark realm of the Earth’s largest creature. Then the whale starts to sing, just feet away from you. Photographer Flip Nicklin brings you face to face with whales as they communicate, nurse their young, and surface dramatically for air. Learn of the different kinds of whales, discover how we can aid their recovery from years of overhunting, and how we can protect their environment.

Image: Memorial Day (Holidays and Festivals), by Rebecca Rissman. Publisher: Heinemann (September 1, 2010)Memorial Day
-- Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in the US nation's service. While Waterloo N.Y. was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, it's difficult to prove conclusively the origins of the day. It is more likely that it had many separate beginnings; each of those towns and every planned or spontaneous gathering of people to honor the war dead in the 1860's tapped into the general human need to honor our dead, each contributed honorably to the growing movement that culminated in Gen Logan giving his official proclamation in 1868.

Read: Memorial Day (Holidays and Festivals), by Rebecca Rissman
-- Memorial Day is observed in honor and remembrance of all the men and women who have died serving our country. Readers are introduced to the ways people mark this day, including attending parades, placing flags on graves at cemeteries, and wearing red poppies.
