East Los Angeles is virtually alive with Latin culture, pulsing to the red-hot beat of the music and glowing with all of its vibrant colors. Such is the world in which you’ll find the famous Mariachi Plaza de Los Angeles, a very popular gathering place for Mariachi bands for over 50 years. It is located near the Boyle Hotel—it was constructed in 1889 by one of author Catherine Lopez Kurland’s ancestors—the landmark hotel marks the gateway to East Los Angeles. Known as the “Hotel Mariachi” the building resonates with decades of music and that is what makes it dear to the residents of the neighborhood.

This book clearly expresses that passion as we join Jackson on a virtual tour of the US and Canada to explore lighthouses. This is both an educational and a visual treat since Jackson wisely included a brief and high informative history of lighthouses from the Roman era to the twentieth century and a history of each of the structures photographed.

As a student Carole Noon soon discovered that her future would be greatly influenced, and altered, for the better when she attended a lecture given by the famous Dr. Jane Goodall. Inspired by this amazing and life-changing event, the young wildlife biology student soon found herself working with Dr. Goodall on her ChimpanZoo program. Using the many skills and valuable knowledge she gained from her time with the program, in 1997 Dr. Noon established the Save The Chimps Sanctuary. This book—Opening Doors: Carole Noon And Her Dream To Save The Chimps—chronicles this wonderfully inspiring true story of one woman’s passion and heartfelt dedication to saving the lives of these highly intelligent primates.
