How to change the world in 12 easy steps : inspired by the life lessons of Eva Mozes Kor / by Peggy Porter Tierney ; illustrations by Marie Letourneau.

How to change the world in 12 easy steps : inspired by the life lessons of Eva Mozes Kor / by Peggy Porter Tierney ; illustrations by Marie Letourneau.
How to Change the World in 12 Easy Steps was inspired by Eva Kor, a child survivor of Auschwitz. She always stressed to young audiences that even though a child, they had the power to change the world. Easy, simple gestures from picking up a piece of trash on the sidewalk, tidying a bedroom, accepting someone who is different, along with other gestures of kindness and thoughtfulness can make a big difference. The book could also serve as a starting point for a conversation on prejudice. Marie Letourneau's illustrations capture the warmth at the heart of this book, making it a fun, but life-changing read--

Seeking freedom : the untold story of Fortress Monroe and the ending of slavery in America / Selene Castrovilla ; illustrated by E.B. Lewis.
George Scott peered at the nearby Union fortress. Something miraculous was taking place! Three enslaved men had entered but had not been cast out. To Scott, the fortress must be a sanctuary. A place where the three would be safe from capture and harm--never to return to the Confederate South. But exactly why were they granted refuge? Scott left the woods where he had been hiding and joined others in line to enter the fortress. Once inside, his knowledge of the area and the movements of the Confederate army impressed the fortress's commander, Major General Benjamin Butler. Working together, they plotted a plan to save the fortress from enemy attack. Would the fortress survive? Would Scott survive? Selene Castrovilla and E.B. Lewis weave a suspenseful tale revealing how two men's brave stand meant eventual freedom to thousands of African Americans and led President Lincoln to issue the Emancipation Proclamation. -- Book jacket
