What is Brexit?

By Claire Leclerc

  • Hardback
  • £13.99

A clear, factual and accessible guide to Brexit and what it might mean for the future of Britain and the European Union

On 23 June 2016, Britain voted in a referendum to leave the European Union. Over the next few years this decision will make a difference to everyone living in Britain. The arguments about whether to stay in or leave the EU were very heated, and while many people celebrated the result of the referendum, others were left upset and fearful for the future. Aimed at young tweens and teens, this book looks at the key topics and arguments surrounding Brexit and considers the facts, implications and possible outcomes of Britain's withdrawl from the EU in a balanced and unbiased way.

Every Child A Song

Nicola Davies, Marc Martin

Nicola Davies, Marc Martin

When you were born, a song began...So begins this lyrical and unique non-fiction picture book by award-winning children's author Nicola Davies. With tenderness and a good deal of heart, Nicola introduces young readers to the universal rights that every child is entitled to under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Using the metaphor of song, the book opens with the arrival of a newborn and its unique 'song', then pans out to explore all the essential things that every song needs to thrive - love, protection, a home, a name, the chance to explore and learn. In the latter half of the book, the issues of child labour, exploitation and war are sensitively introduced to emphasise that we all must play our part in championing children's rights and offering support to those who need it most. With beautiful and deeply moving watercolour illustrations by award-winning artist Marc Martin, this is a book that encourages children, and the adults in their lives, to speak up for young people all around the world, and to treat one another with compassion and kindness.

It explores how it is formed through the cooling and solidification of fiery orange magma or lava that explodes from volcanoes. This book covers important Earth science concepts and the different kinds of igneous rocks, how identify them by their physical properties, and what clues they offer about our planet's past. The text also clues readers in on the ways we can use this tough rock as a resource, and how people living near volcanoes can benefit from living in a volcanic environment. Sidebars, fact boxes, and interesting photos supplement the texts information-rich content.
