This picture book is a great teaching tool for your little one and for you. It is like illustrated encyclopedia of tigers for every kid. The pictures are clear and the colors are nice. If you are ready to challenge your mind and prove to everyone that you are the king of tigers knowledge, then pick up this book and prepare for the ultimate trivia experience. Test your fact knowledge as you look at some of the most captivating facts about tigers. Do you know that? Tigers are the biggest cats in the world. Tigers are an endangered species; only about 5,000 to 7,400 tigers are left in the wild. There are a greater number of tigers in captivity in the US alone than there are wild tigers left on earth. Tigers prefer to hunt large prey by ambush. If you look at a tiger, it is less likely to attack, as it has lost the element of surprise. In some locations in India, people traditionally wear a mask on the back of their head while walking through forests to prevent tigers from pouncing from behind. Tigers are very adaptable in their hunting techniques. Although they prefer to kill by attacking the neck, they do not do so when they recognize it is inappropriate. A large crocodile might bite down on a swimming tiger, which will immediately blind the reptile by striking it in the eyes. A crocodile’s neck is covered with thick amored skin, so the tiger will instead flip the animal over and eviscerate its soft belly. Siberian tigers are the heaviest subspecies at 500 or more pounds (225 kg), with males heavier than females. The lightest subspecies is the Sumatran; males weigh about 250 pounds (110 kg) and females around 200 pounds (90 kg). Tiger stripes are like human fingerprints; no two tigers have the same pattern of stripes. Tiger cubs are born blind and weigh only about 2 to 3 pounds (1 kg), depending on the subspecies. They live on milk for 6-8 weeks before the female begins taking them to kills to feed. Tigers have fully developed canines by 16 months of age, but they do not begin making their own kills until about 18 months of age. To show happiness, tigers squint or close their eyes. This is because losing vision lowers defense, so tigers (and many other cats) only purposefully do so when they feel comfortable and safe. Tigers can sprint at over 60km/h for short distances. As you read this book over and over to your child it won't be long before they are the ones pointing to the picture and telling you what it is. The author Katy Gleit wrote this book for her own two grandchildren Dani and Deia: In "Tigers: 100 Illustrated Fun Facts " your children are given a well-selected knowledge along with entertaining information about these amazing creatures. In addition, a set of wonderful pictures show exactly what a tigers looks like.

The Yangtze River is known by many names. From its headwaters in the glaciers of Tibet, it drops nearly 16,000 feet (5000 metres) on its journey to the East China Sea. For millions of years it has cut its path through the land. It flows through mountains and deep gorges and along broad, flat valley plains, taking water from thousands of rivers and lakes. It is shrouded in mists and mountains, stories and legend. Its basin is home to nearly one third of the population. To the Chinese, the Yangtze is more than a river; she is a living, breathing part of their very lives. How much do you know about the Yangtze River?

Der stumme Frühling erschien erstmals 1962. Der Titel bezieht sich auf das eingangs erzählte Märchen von der blühenden Stadt, in der sich eine seltsame, schleichende Seuche ausbreitet … Das spannend geschriebene Sachbuch wirkte bei seinem Erscheinen wie ein Alarmsignal und avancierte rasch zur Bibel der damals entstehendenÖkologie-Bewegung. ZumerstenMal wurde hier in eindringlichem Appell die Fragwürdigkeit des chemischen Pflanzenschutzes dargelegt. An einer Fülle von Tatsachen machte Rachel Carson seine schädlichen Auswirkungen auf die Natur und die Menschen deutlich. Ihre Warnungen haben seither nichts von ihrer Aktualität verloren.

Am 15. Januar 2009 startet der Inlandsflug 1549 in New York. In einer Höhe von etwa 1000 Metern – die Maschine befindet sich gerade über der Bronx – kollidiert ein Schwarm Wildgänse mit dem Airbus, an Bord sind 150 Passagiere und fünf Besatzungsmitglieder. Kapitän Sullenberger meldet Schubverlust in beiden Triebwerken und entscheidet sich wegen der geringen Flughöhe für eine hochriskante Notwasserung. Nur sechs dramatische Minuten nach dem Start trifft die Maschine im Gleitflug auf dem Hudson auf, rund anderthalb Kilometer vom Times Square entfernt. Rettungskräften gelingt die Evakuierung der Passagiere. Die Bilder von der spektakulären Landung und Rettungsaktion gehen bald um die Welt. Chesley Sullenberger, der sich eher ungern als »Der Held vom Hudson« tituliert sah, blickt nun auf sein Leben zurück und beschreibt, wie er zu dem Ausnahmepiloten wurde, der in schwierigster Notsituation Augenmaß und Entschlusskraft bewahrt und der Verantwortung für die ihm anvertrauten Mitmenschen gerecht wird. Er berichtet von seiner Kindheit in Texas, wie er bereits im Alter von fünf Jahren den Traum hegte, Pilot zu werden, und bereits mit sechzehn seinen ersten Soloflug bestritt; er erzählt von den prägenden Jahren bei der Air Force und seinen Erlebnissen als Flugkapitän, seit er 1980 zur zivilen Luftfahrt wechselte. Sullenberger ist überzeugt, dass seine gesammelten Lebenserfahrungen ihn auf die dramatischen Augenblicke, die sein Leben radikal verändern sollten und die er minutiös und mitreißend schildert, vorbereitet haben, als er sich – entgegen der Anweisung aus dem Flughafentower – für die Landung im Hudson entschied. Hier, so der Kapitän, konnte er auf all das an Einsichten und Tugenden zurückgreifen, was er nicht nur in seinem Beruf, sondern für sein gesamtes Leben als unerlässlich ansieht: Disziplin und Pflichtgefühl, Genauigkeit und Sorgfalt, Verantwortungsgefühl und Vertrauen, aber auch den Mut, notfalls im Alleingang eine Entscheidung zu treffen.
