              An educational ABC alphabet picture book for kids - to help children learn the English alphabet at the same time as letting them see the people, places, and culture of island countries. Part of a series of ABC books that focuses on countries. Having children of our own that are g...rowing up in a different country to where their parents and grandparents are from, we see the need for having some early cultural awareness and word recognition of other places that may be significant to their family. We hope this book promotes discussion at family reading time into what it means to live a in different country. The book has a page for the following islands / countries / continents: Antarctica, Bahrain, Cuba, Dominican Republic, East Timor, Fiji, Greenland, Haiti, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kiribati, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Papua New Guinea, North Sentinel Island, Ireland, Samoa, Tonga, United Kingdom (UK), Vanuatu, New Zealand. The following seas and oceans are mentioned: Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, Caribbean Sea, Irish Sea, Bay of Bengal.Each page has some engaging images and a small fact about the subject. It is packed with pictures of all sorts of animals and scenery.

              The Abandoned by Jules Verne Conversation on the Subject of the Bullet Construction of a Canoe Hunting At the Top of a Kauri Nothing to attest the Presence of Man Neb and Herbert's Prize Turning a Turtle The Turtle disappears Cyrus Harding's Explanation. It was now exactly seven ...months since the balloon voyagers had been thrown on Lincoln Island. During that time, notwithstanding the researches they had made, no human being had been discovered. No smoke even had betrayed the presence of man on the surface of the island. No vestiges of his handiwork showed that either at an early or at a late period had man lived there. Not only did it now appear to be uninhabited by any but themselves, but the colonists were compelled to believe that it never had been inhabited. And now, all this scaffolding of reasonings fell before a simple ball of metal, found in the body of an inoffensive rodent! In fact, this bullet must have issued from a firearm, and who but a human being could have used such a weapon? When Pencroft had placed the bullet on the table, his companions looked at it with intense astonishment. All the consequences likely to result from this incident, notwithstanding its apparent insignificance, immediately took possession of their minds. The sudden apparition of a supernatural being could not have startled them more completely.
