Summary

This illustrated anthology features the celebrated poet’s complete works for children—with an introduction by his wife, Paula Sandburg. 
 
As a young father of two daughters, Carl Sandburg noticed that children’s literature was still stuck in the traditions of European folklore, centered on princes, princesses and peasants. He wanted to create stories that spoke more directly to American children and their way of life. His first book for children, Rootabaga Stories, explore farms, trains and other typical locales as the clever characters discover the magic of the Midwest. 
 
This volume includes all five of Carl Sandburg’s books for young readers: Rootabaga Stories, Early Moon, Wind Song, Prairie-Town Boy, and Abe Lincoln Grows Up.
Available since: 01/30/2018.
Print length: 578 pages.

    Rosi must decide what she's willing to risk to save her family - and maybe even all of humanity - in the thrilling first novel of a brand-new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author, Margaret Peterson Haddix.  
    For the past twelve years, adults called "Freds" have raised Rosi, her younger brother Bobo, and the other children of their town, saying it is too dangerous for them to stay with their parents, but now they are all being sent back. Since Rosi is the oldest, all the younger kids are looking to her with questions she doesn't have the answers to. She'd always trusted the Freds completely, but now she's not so sure. And their home is nothing like she'd expected, like nothing the Freds had prepared them for. Will Rosi and the other kids be able to adjust to their new reality?
