Mermaid and the Star

by Sherrie Conaway

A beautiful goodnight story to be enjoyed over and over. As Star falls from the heavens and plummets into the ocean, a terrible fate awaits him - if he is not rescued by Mermaid before hitting the ocean’s floor. He could become a “star that crawls, but dreams no more” and forget how he once twinkled “up above the world so high, like a diamond in the sky.” This favorite lullaby is transformed by a young girl dreaming about the night sky and the mysteries of the vast sea, and it reminds us - kids and adults alike - how important our innate sense of child-like wonder is as we explore our world and keep our dreams alive.

Tilikum's Dream (book and soundtrack)

by Tracey Lynn Coryell

It is time to set him free! Tilikum has been living in a cement pool since he was about two, when he was ripped from his mother’s side off the coast of Iceland in 1983. Tracey Lynn Coryell joins the Blue Freedom movement to free orcas like Tilikum, and other gorgeous and intelligent sea animals, with this book and music by singer-songwriter Tracey, accompanied by legendary jazz guitarist Larry Coryell. Tilikum’s Dream adds one more voice to the Blue Freedom campaign to give “a voice to the voiceless whales and dolphins who have been captured and forced into a life of captivity, where they are made to endlessly perform tricks or cooperate with swim programs for the profit of marine parks.” (www.bluefreedom.org)

Die Runde Eckstube: Geheimnisse und Geschichten aus Schloss Rentweinsdorf

by Hans von Rotenhan

Zimmer für Zimmer führt uns der Autor durch Schloss Rentweinsdorf in Unterfranken. Seine Vorfahren ließen es vor rund 300 Jahren auf den Ruinen einer noch viel älteren Wasserburg erbauen. Mit jeder Türe, die er öffnet, drängen stürmisch Geschichten über Dinge und Personen ins Freie, als hätten sie all die Jahre nur darauf gewartet, endlich erzählt zu werden. Hans von Rotenhan tut es mit viel Lust am Fabulieren, mit Sachkunde und trockenem Humor. In den 1950er Jahren ist er im Kreise seiner vier Geschwister in Schloss Rentweinsdorf aufgewachsen. Unverkennbar ist seine Prägung durch diesen Ort, durch seine Familie und seine fränkische Heimat. Aber seine unbestechliche Beobachtungsgabe und sein Faible für die Wahrheit machen dieses Geschichten-Buch ein gutes Stück auch zum Geschichtsbuch.
