FOREWORD by Craig Kielburger, Free the Children Foundation. When the Children´s Wish Foundation approached lovely 13-year-old Maddison Babineau just after she received her cancer diagnosis, they offered her the wish of a lifetime. You can do anything, they said: A Disney cruise? The chance to meet your favorite movie star? A $5,000 shopping spree? To those who knew her, it came as no surprise that none of these things were on Maddie´s wish list. But she did know exactly what she wanted. She had been moved to tears after watching a television program about the plight of orphaned children in an African village whose suffering was made all the more tragic because of inadequate shelter, lack of food, and clean drinking water. Maddie´s wish? To ease the plight of these children, halfway across the world. With the money from the foundation, Maddie built the village orphans a shelter and a school, and she provided food and clean water. But this was just the start. Despite being bedridden, and then hospital-bound by her disease, until her dying day Maddie became an indefatigable fundraiser for her children. Maddie was recognized, in life and posthumously, with a number of awards, honors, and memorials. But, until the end, all that was important to her was providing hope and future to the village children who had filled her heart. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susan Crawford.

By 2030, experts predict two-thirds of people living on this planet will not have enough water, a situation expected to result in the deaths of millions and an unprecedented rise in military conflicts. Can we as individuals hope to reverse these dire predictions? Award-winning author and water activist Florencia Ramirez believes we can if our conservation efforts focus on the 70 percent of freshwater flowing to the fields and ranches that grow our food. Eat Less Water takes the listener on a journey to meet America´s food producers growing food with less water. Florencia exposes the seldom-seen connection between dwindling water resources and the choices we make when shopping for groceries for our families and offers us the solution that begins in the kitchen. 1.

I´m the fat Puerto Rican - Polish girl who doesn´t feel like she belongs in her skin, or anywhere else for that matter. I´ve always been too much and yet not enough. Sugar Legowski-Gracia wasn´t always fat, but fat is what she is now at age seventeen. Not as fat as her mama, who is so big she hasn´t gotten out of bed in months. Not as heavy as her brother, Skunk, who has more meanness in him than fat, which is saying something. But she´s large enough to be the object of ridicule wherever she is: at the grocery store, walking down the street, at school. Sugar´s life is dictated by taking care of Mama in their run-down home - cooking, shopping, and, well, eating. A lot of eating, which Sugar hates as much as she loves. When Sugar meets Even (not Evan - his nearly illiterate father misspelled his name on the birth certificate), she has the new experience of someone seeing her and not her body. As their unlikely friendship builds, Sugar allows herself to think about the future for the first time, a future not weighed down by her body or her mother. Soon Sugar will have to decide whether to become the girl that Even helps her see within herself or to sink into the darkness of the skin-deep role her family and her life have created for her. 1.

But the spirit of Christmas gets under Lizzy´s skin: soon the fairy lights are twinkling and the scent of mulled wine mingles with the sea air.
