Fitting in is very important when you’re young—whether you’re a kid or a colt. But what if you feel as if you’re different from al...l your friends? I Want to Be You is the illustrated story of Zip, a young horse who doesn’t look like the others. A yellow palomino, Zip stands out among the black and chestnut horses at his ranch. Although his family and friends assure him that his buttery coat is beautiful, Zip still feels out of place. Zip tries to change his color by rolling in mud and spilling paint on himself. Then he meets Cowboy Gus, who sees something special in the young horse. With Gus’s help, Zip discovers amazing talents that have nothing to do with his outward appearance. With lovely illustrations and a powerful message about self-confidence, I Want to Be You is the perfect story for any child who feels different. As Zip learns as he grows older, it’s not what’s on the outside that defines you—it’s what’s on the inside. Even though there may be times when you wish you were someone else, the best thing you can be is yourself. read more

Beauty Beneath the Waves Coloring Book
This delightful combination picture-and-puzzle book offers two kinds of fun for sharp-eyed youngsters handy with a crayon. The boo...k contains a series of charming scenes, usually featuring children — at the beach, on a farm, enjoying the zoo, at a picnic, and in other fun-filled situations. In each scene, however, there are a number of things wrong — objects that do not belong where they are, people behaving oddly, and things happening that are impossible in real life. The caption beneath each picture tells how many things are wrong. Young sleuths are invited to use their detective skills to find as many of these "mistakes" as they can, before looking at the solutions.When they're through detecting, or even while they're still looking for "things that don't belong," children can have fun coloring the pictures. The pictures can be colored to make the odd things easy to see, or to keep them hidden for other young detectives to find. read more
