This is Vera Harris's third self-published children's book. Even before I started Happy Reading, self-published in 2014, I've alwa...ys had an interest in becoming a book author. I love creating fun-filled stories that captivate the hearts of little kids, so I worked hard to make my dream a reality. My first books, A Bee on My Bike (2014) and Zach and His Cat (2015), both appeared in Storymonster.com, a family magazine, and Storytime Pup. They were also featured in Children's Books Read Aloud on YouTube. I was a part of the Dallas Book Festival 2016, the Houston Texas Black Book Festival, Dallas Public Library Reader's Fest, and numerous book-signing ventures throughout Dallas-Fort Worth Metro as well. You can take a look at my books at the Dallas Public Library; Ellen Brooks West Memorial Library of Forney in Texas; Houston, Texas Public Library; and the Savannah, Georgia Public Library. I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my family, most of whom fondly call me Sister. Aside from these hobbies, I also love working in the church and being a volunteer reading partner for the Dallas Independent School District. A retired combat Army veteran, I served the U.S. Army with honor and distinction for thirty years. My dedication earned me two Bronze Star medals plus various other commendations, certificates, medals, and honors. Vera Harris, called Sister by her family, loves spending time with her family and working in her church. Her grandson inspired her to write her first book. My books can be purchased at OutskirtsPress.com, Amazon.com, and Barnes & Noble.

In Khmer Legends: Part II, the fascinating sequel to the 2009 Khmer Legends, author Demaz Baker further explores one of the most i...nteresting places on the planet: Cambodia. Khmer Legends: Part II focuses on the folktales of the Khmer people. Though the country is very much a part of the twenty-first century, it is founded, as all countries are, in its traditional beliefs and superstitions. For Cambodian expatriates sent across the globe after the war and new generations of Cambodian in their homeland, it’s important to remember their shared past in order to move forward. Grounded in research and reviewed by experts, Baker’s contribution to the preservation of Cambodian culture will be a treasure for generations to come. Advancements in education and technology, the shrinking of the world’s commerce and communications, and perspectives focused on the future usually push attributes like folklore to the side. With Khmer Legends: Part II, the structure of Cambodia will live on. read more

As a child my father read me stories almost every night, but for me, that was simply the beginning. When the book closed and my eyes shut tight, that's when the real adventure began. Come see where your imagination will take you as you discover the magical thing called the light switch to heaven. . . About the Author: Much like the rest of you, I came into this world kicking and screaming. Later in life, kicking and screaming turned into temper tantrums. Sound familiar? Honestly, maybe one of the only times I would ever shut up was when I was tucked into bed and read a goodnight story. It's funny how at the age of 42, not only do I still remember those times, but I consider myself a better person because of them. I am very much a kid at heart, and am not ashamed to admit it. So here I am, sharing my story with anyone that will read it. In the end, it's not about how many awards I have received or how many books I have sold. For me, it all comes down to this: If one child falls asleep smiling tonight and wakes up tomorrow with his imagination running wild, well. . . that's perfectly alright with me. read more

African-Americans have contributed greatly to our present society. From the first sailing of Columbus to the New World, to the Lew...is and Clark expedition, to the settling of the West, to the evolution of modern sports and to the invention of modern conveniences we take for granted in our everyday lives, African Americans have been an integral part of the history of the United States. Because many of these great Americans were not gifted orators like Martin Luther King or incredible athletes like Muhammad Ali or Jackie Robinson, they have faded away from our history lessons and history books. In writing Kenny's Summer, I hope to bring some of these lesser-known African-Americans from history to life. I hope that young and old alike can find inspiration in what these people had to endure and in what they were able to accomplish and contribute to our society. I also hope readers, especially young readers, will discover a valuable, and, until now, neglected part of our great history. About the Author: Edward Going was born and raised in New York City.

Along the way, they encounter Cholly the cat, a smart-talking tabby with a magnificent tail, who eventually comes to their aid.

At last in the spring, after almost a year on the road, Miss Annie's quest comes to an abrupt and heart-warming conclusion. read more
