Hardcover - 341 pages (June 2, 1999), Levine Books. In this sequel to the phenomenally popular Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Harry returns to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for his second year after a miserable summer with his Muggle (nonmagical) relatives.

[book] Where the Sidewalk Ends : The Poems and Drawings of Shel Silverstein by Shel Silverstein
Reading level: Ages 9-12 Hardcover - 166 pages (November 1974). Shel Silverstein's masterful collection of poems and drawings is at once profound and outrageously funny. For example:
I will not play at tug o' war.
I'd rather play at hug o' war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.

[book] Speed of Light by Sybil Rosen
Reading level: Ages 9-12 School & Library Binding - 160 pages (July 1999). In Montgomery, Alabama, in 1956, there's a bus boycott, but in 11-year-old Audrey's small mill town in the mountains of Virginia, segregation is never challenged. Then Mr. Caldwell tries to become the town's first black policeman, Audrey's father supports the integration, and Audrey and her family are verbally and physically attacked as Jews "trying to help that nigger." This realistic depiction of life in a small southern city in the 50's reflects accurately the problems facing Jews and Blacks during the struggle for integration.

[book] Star of Luis by Marc Talbert
Reading level: Ages 9-12 Hardcover - 192 pages (March 1999). When Luis's father joins the army shortly after the start of World War II, Luis's entire life changes. His mother decides to return to the dusty New Mexican village where she and her husband grew up. In Los Angeles, Luis had struggled to find a place in his ethnically diverse neighborhood and had been intimidated into ending a close friendship with a Jewish boy. In Las Manos, New Mexico everyone is Hispanic and Catholic like Luis, but the way of life seems backward and slow. Luis and his mother stay in a cramped bungalow with his dying grandfather and sullen grandmother, and Luis must share a bed with his uncle, a priest. Then, just as Luis begins to feel more comfortable in Las Manos, he learns an unsettling fact-his family is not Catholic after all. They are Jewish, a secret that has been kept for generations. Angry and confused, Luis realizes he must confront his feelings about family, religion, and friends, and ultimately make his own decision about who he is. Will he be ostracized back in Los Angeles??
