Freedom in Congo Square

Freedom in Congo Square
Weatherford, Carole Boston, 1956-

"As slaves relentlessly toiled in an unjust system in 19th century Louisiana, they all counted down the days until Sunday, when at least for half a day they were briefly able to congregate in Congo Square in New Orleans. Here they were free to set up an open market, sing, dance, and play music. They were free to forget their cares, their struggles, and their oppression. This story chronicles slaves' duties each day, from chopping logs on Mondays to baking bread on Wednesdays to plucking hens on Saturday, and builds to the freedom of Sundays and the special experience of an afternoon spent in Congo Square."--Provided by publisher.

Explore Shapes and Angles!

Explore Shapes and Angles!
Moore, Jeanette

A kid's world is made of shapes and angles--by encouraging readers to become savvy at identifying and using the different shapes, this book serves as the perfect introduction to geometry and a way to build a strong foundation in math skills that will serve them well as they are exposed to increasingly more complicated concepts. Hands-on, design-minded projects, such as designing a tree house, offer opportunities to discover how engineers and designers use shapes and angles to create strong structures. Readers are encouraged to use blocks, bodies, and yoga to mimic geometric shapes and find combinations so strong they'll even hold up heavy weights.
