When a young girl named Kikko realizes her father has forgotten the pie he was supposed to bring to Grandma's house, she offers to... try and catch him as he makes his way through the woods. She hurriedly follows her father's footprints in the snow and happens upon a large house she has never seen before. Curious, Kikko peers through the window, when she is startled by a small lamb wearing a coat and carrying a purse. Even more surprising, the lamb speaks, asking her in a kind voice, .Are you here for the tea party?. Suddenly, Kikko realizes her trip through the woods has turned into something magical. Award-winning author and illustrator Akiko Miyakoshi has beautifully crafted an original fairy tale picture book that will delight and enchant. The unique visual presentation features mostly black-and-white art with the occasional use of red or yellow to help guide readers through the pages. Kikko's blend of courage and reticence along with her inquisitive nature makes her a character children will relate to, and the many unexpected twists and turns of her adventure keep the intrigue growing. The ambiguous ending -- in which it is not clear whether Kikko imagined the tea party or if the animals simply disappeared back into the woods -- provides a terrific opportunity for children to weigh in on what they think happened. This book also could launch classroom conversations about children's own experiences of being trusted with big responsibilities. Read More

In a field dominated by men, one of the most successful and busiest magicians of a generation was also a woman. Dell O'Dell grew u...p in Kansas, and learned to love show business amidst the sawdust and spangles of her father's circus. She began to entertain as a teenager, teaching herself to juggle, perform acrobatics, and work with animals. Eventually, she would go on to own her own circus, perform as a comedy magician in vaudeville, and finally find certified stardom as a headlining night club performer and television star. Half a world away, in Switzerland, Charles Carrer was learning many of the same feats of digital dexterity. He developed a polished, dapper, and amazing juggling act that took him on tours throughout the European continent, South America, and eventually landed him in America. It was there, in New York, that the two troupers met, married, and embarked on a partnership - on and off stage - that has to be read to be believed. In the pages of Don't Fool Yourself, author Michael Claxton draws on first-person accounts, revealing research, and rich historical archives to paint humanizing and captivating portraits of Dell O'Dell and Charlie Career - remarkable entertainers whose lives were intertwined - as well as fascinating bygone eras of American show business. A quality 6 x 9" hardcover, 332 pages, illustrated with dozens of unpublished images. As a bonus, each book includes a Dell O'Dell Dancing Doll novelty. Read More

What is Wordishure?<br><br> It is a collection of seven children's stories in one book. The first six chronicle the adventures a...nd lessons of the various inhabitants of Wordishure. Story number seven brings all the characters of the first six together for one grand adventure.<br><br>These stories are written for children of all ages and can be enjoyed by parent and child alike. Each adventure includes Biblical lessons that will inspire the reader and also start a dialogue between parent and child about God and personal accountability. Children tend to have a natural love for Jesus Christ, but sometimes they grow away from Him as they get older because they never truly got to know him. Some just seem to love Him because they sit in church every Sunday and they see that their parents are pleased when they say they love Him. Children need to get to know Jesus at a level they can understand, and that their decision to follow Him requires a willingness to change their heart and behavior.<br><br>I have written the Tales of Wordishure because I have seen very few pieces of Christian literature that are written in the style of children's classics such as "The Ugly Duckling," "Little Red Riding Hood," "Hansel and Gretel," or "The 3 Little Pigs." The Lord used parables to help people understand the mysteries of God. Tales of Wordishure does the same thing, but at a level that children can understand and have fun with at the same time. <br><br>There is no magic in Wordishure. Today's popular children's literature emphasizes the use of witchcraft, numbing the child at an early age to think that it is okay. Wordishure is an alternative. There are fantastic situations in the stories, but all are resolved through prayer, proper decisions by the characters, and trust in the Lord. Children need to know at an early age not to put their trust in secular fantasies, but to trust in sound Biblical doctrine.<br><br>Where is Wordishure?<br><br>It is an imaginary realm where modern technology does not exist. It is a world seen from a child's point of view. <br><br>Are there adults in these stories?<br><br>There are parents in all the stories, and although never named, they are seen as wise and to be obeyed. <br><br>Are there wicked villains in Wordishure?<br><br>There are no true villains or fear of death in Wordishure, only the misunderstood, or creatures that have lost their way from following God's word.<br><br>What is the age range for the reader?<br><br>Children of all ages call enjoy The Tales of Wordishure. The characters in the stories fire up the imagination of the smallest child, while word play and Christian principles hold the attention of the older kids and adults. <br><br>Why is there a scripture verse at the beginning of each story?<br><br>Each story is built around a Bible principle that the child should learn as the story progresses. Some stories have more than one Biblical lesson, though! Read More

You will meet Feather Flop, Mr. Hop Toad, Good Mrs. Bee, Little Ladybird, Beauty Butterfly, Mr. Cut Worm, the Wicked Rose Bugs, and the Plant Families, and you will take a magical trip to Fairy Flower land with the Flower Fairies---Jack-in-the-Pulpit and Bouncing Bet. This enchanting book will delight readers of all ages with its endearing story, lovely illustrations, and comprehensive instruction that introduces children to the world of gardening in a way that is easy to understand. Using a powerful ?play-lesson? format, The Mary Frances Garden Book 100th Anniversary Edition teaches how to test and amend soil, how to make compost, the proper way to water plants, the parts of a flower, the origin and history of roses, the benefits of birds and bees, plus the good and bad of insects. When Mary Frances decides to have a garden party, instruction is provided in planning ahead to entertain a group, develop a meal plan, and coordinate time-sensitive tasks. Further instruction includes plans for a tiny herb garden complete with tips for the use of herbs in cooking.

Youth gardens provide a way to encourage children to make smart nutritional choices, form better lifelong eating habits, and develop a love of nature. Gardens build self-esteem in a way that is fun, but also contributes to the family?s well-being.

One day, not long ago, Sir Jasper Gowlings was happily minding his own business when he was startled by a powerful gust of wind th...at blew his front door clean off its hinges. Standing on his doorstep was a bizarre, wizened old hag wrapped in a moldy, moth-eaten cloak that smelled strangely of wet dog and split pea soup. Seconds later, Sir Jasper found himself in possession of an ancient, rotting book of magical and portentous tales and a terrifying letter that ordered him to share the contents of the book with the world-or else. Sir Jasper slowly turned the crumbling pages and began reading the tales of Cinderella, Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood, and the Three Little Pigs. These were not the old, lying, deceitful tales that once tricked him into believing that only attractive, royal-like people, talking pigs, or poor wee tikes with evil stepmothers could ever find love, joy, and delicious things to eat. Oh no! These tales told the absolute truth, 100 percent, and all of them ended in a manner that curdled Sir Jasper's blood and made his hair stand on end in horror. Be warned. Anyone who chooses to ignore the teachings inside Terrible Tales may find themselves in dreadful danger. Just take it from Sir Jasper who, after turning the last page of the frightful manuscript, knew he must heed its lessons-or pay the price. Fans of dark comedy in the style of Roald Dahl and Lemony Snicket will delight in these wicked alter egos". -ForeWord Clarion Review "Kids and parents alike will chortle at Miserius's lively, pungent prose. A twisted, entertaining take on the kids' canon". -Kirkus Review" Read More
