Teach a child how to spell his or her name by spelling it on the child's bedroom wall using Wallables 3D talking alphabet letter decals. The alphabet decals offer children a fun learning experience that engages the senses on the visual, aural, and tactile levels. The alphabet decals are crafted in soft, soy-based polyurethane foam that is more child-safe than traditional petroleum-based polyurethane. Free of lead and phthalates the alphabet decals have also passed both the ASTM and CE toy safety tests. Designed to resemble classic alphabet blocks, the brightly colored decals complement the decor of most bedrooms and playrooms. Upon pressing the center of the letter, a soft voice recites the decal's letter. Adhesive fastener backing on the decals allows the child to remove, rearrange, and reapply letters to form different words. While great for preschool-age children and older, the decal has small parts that pose a choking hazard to children under the age of three.Dimensions: Measures 6" wide by 1" deep by 6" highAlphabet block design with raised white letter on bright colored background; letter glows in dark up to 20 minutesAvailable from "A" to "Z

He knows he'll have to leave it behind when he and his brothers are sent to boarding school hundreds of miles from their Arctic village. At Sacred Heart School things are different. Instead of family, there are students - Eskimo, Indian, White - who line up on different sides of the cafeteria like there's some kind of war going on. And instead of comforting words like tutu and maktak, there's English. Speaking Inupiaq - or any native language - is forbidden. And Father Mullen, whose fury is like a force of nature, is ready to slap down those who disobey. Luke struggles to survive at Sacred Heart. But he's not the only one. There's smart-aleck Amiq, a daring leader - if he doesn't self destruct; Chickie, blond and freckled, a different kind of outsider; and small quiet Junior, noticing everything and writing it all down.
