If you thought tube worms and bacteria were the only colonizers of vents, you might be surprised to learn about predators and scavengers like the octopus and sea spider.

Non-violent protest is the focus of this picture book with actual quotes and facts from Gandhi's march.

ZOMBIE MAKERS: TRUE STORIES OF NATURE'S UNDEAD by Rebecca I. Johnson If you love gore and grossness this book is for you, and every word is absolutely true. Who knew animals and insects take over others brains! It's not for the squeamish! http://catalog.cincinnatilibrary.org/iii/encore/search/C__Szombie%20makers__Orightresult__U1?lang=eng=cobalt
If you have a weak stomach, this isn't the book for you. But if you can handle it, this text is incredibly inviting for undead fans. Sections explore an attribute like Zombie Trait #3: Doesn't respond to pain. Ignores injuries or loss of body parts: Doesn't seem to mind being eaten. What follows is an explanation of that trait in nature like with the cockroach and jewel wasp where the wasp paralyzes the cockroach and turns it into a host for its young. Creepy, crawly and hard to put down.

The mystery of the vanishing honeybees began in the winter of 2006 when beekeeper Dave Hackenberg inspected 400 of his 3000 hives in Florida and discovered that 20 million bees had simply disappeared. He alerted state bee inspectors and other beekeepers that there was some strange new ailment affecting these insects and asked for help in finding the cause. Soon beekeepers across the country were reporting similar catastrophes. Most of this lucid, fact-filled introduction focuses on t

Phenomenal photography supports the text of this book. Great for any owl lover. It's definitely for the older reader as there aren't the typical nonfiction supports in place, but that's part of what makes it a "next step" for mature intermediate readers.

You Are Weird: Your Body’s Peculiar Parts and Funny Functions by Diane Swanson is a great support for a unit on the human body, but also stands alone with high-interest subtopics like "Flaky Birthday Suit." Did you know we shed 35,000 skin cells each minute? Swanson's writing has plenty of voice and she makes it clear how weird (and special) we are as humans.
