What child would not be delighted by the story of bewildering matzoballs, miraculous latkes, unusual guests to a Bar Mitzvah, and ...a dog with a mysterious and exciting history? These are the contents of Cynthia Goren's "Tales from a Jewish Grandmother" In this collection, two stories for the very young and two for the older child subtly but convincingly stress the importance of respect and patience both for each other and for all of nature. The whimsy of the earlier stories will bring giggles to the younger set; the more serious and nuanced later stories will provide the thought and substance needed by an older child. Sprinkled with love and faith, heritage, and peoplehood, this anthology illustrates, above all, the Jewish child's thirst for the beautiful traditions of Judaism. "This delightful anthology of stories, suitable for children of varying ages, will open a child's eyes, heart, and mind to his or her connection to the dynamic and thriving culture of the Jewish people" -Danny A. Brass, DVM Book Reviewer for the National Speleological Society and Choice Magazine read more

Bread comes in different sizes, shapes, colors, and textures.  Even so, it's all bread.  Little children also come in different si...zes, shapes, and colors, but they all belong to the same human race.   Bread is such a simple food, right?  That is what many elementary school children think before experiencing the innovative workshop entitled, "Opening the Breadbasket."  The workshop was conducted 10 years before the book "Bread is a Simple Food" was written. Through this basic food children can learn a profound lesson about cultures.   This book was written to help children internalize the oneness of the human family. read more

Family Day: Celebrating Ethan’s Adoption Anniversary As 5-year-old Ethan and his family commemorate the first anniversary of his a...doption, they reminisce about the joy and excitement of that special event. As the day progresses they pause to think about Ethan’s birth family and to look through his Lifebook. Along the way, Ethan’s curiosity leads to discussions which help him conclude that adoption is a wonderful way to build families. Praise for Family Day Family Day: Celebrating Ethan's Adoption Anniversary is a heartwarming and important addition to the fairly thin catalogue of literature for and about children and families experiencing foster care adoption. Ethan's joyful, yet curious approach to his special day brilliantly captures the feelings of foster care children wanting to be a part of an adopted family while also grieving the loss of their birth family. Ms. Mitchell's book provides a welcome support for children and adults alike, and should be in the hands of every family created or expanded through foster care adoption. Rita Soronen Executive Director Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption Family Day will open windows of communication for families who have adopted. The book explains why families might be motivated to adopt, how the process occurs, and the varied feelings associated with adoption. Some adopted children don't have the opportunity to interact with other adoptive families. This book will help to normalize adoption and its resulting permanent family relationships.

Ella Mortimer is a bright nine-year-old girl who happens to have leukemia. Diagnosed at the age of six, the long hospital visits, ...chemotherapy, blood transfusions, bouts of nausea, and lack of energy are taking a toll on Ella, who is a realist by nature. To cheer her up, her mom, Rebecca, takes Ella and her siblings, Chelsea and Miles, on a vacation to "Dreamcatchers" an aged amusement park that has seen better days. Once there, Ella meets an intriguing boy named Sebastian, who lives in the amusement park. With the help of this strange boy and his many wonderful adventures, Ella soon learns that there is more to life than just the facts and dreaming is every bit as important as the reality of her illness. Ella & Sebastian is based, in part, on the experience of Lydia, a girl who was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of six. Like Ella, Lydia relapsed before her first round of treatments was completed and at times certainly needed a distraction from this disease. We are delighted to announce that after five years of treatments, Lydia has been in remission for over three years and is now focusing on being a teenager. At Lydia's request, a portion of the proceeds of this book will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to continue their efforts to find a cure for leukemia and other blood diseases, as well as the Children's Miracle Network, whose local organization was essential in helping Lydia to fulfill her dreams while she was being treated, because every child deserves to dream. read more

Charles Dickens wrote a great story..., a story that resonated with his readers over a century ago and has continued to do so over... the years. The story's power to touch people's hearts is undeniable and this version is offered for two reasons. First, the original version is, for today's readers, difficult to read and understand. Its verbiage and style were entirely appropriate for the day, but now are cumbersome at best. This version is written to be more reader-friendly while holding to the soul and integrity of the original. Our story also has been abridged to some degree to make the story line a bit simpler. Second, we take the liberty of reading between the lines of what Dickens wrote and making, we believe, the logical assumption that Scrooge's final transformation is a true spiritual rebirth. Many who have studied his life and work are convinced of his own Christianity as his work not only includes a beautifully written story about Jesus, but his other writings always told a story of redemption. Read it to your children and your grandchildren during this Christmas time and then put it on the shelf to be taken down and re-read Christmas after Christmas. This story doesn't get old. It is, indeed, a perennial favorite. read more

It's almost Valentine's Day, and the North Pole has been a gloomy place since the day after Christmas. Santa Claus is depressed by... the thought of children who are suffering from tragedy and hardship, and the elves don't know what to do to get him back to his jolly old self! Then along comes Captain Candy Cane-the sprightly guardian of the Spirit of Christmas-and her dog Snowball. Captain Candy Cane brings a present for Santa: jewels containing magical messages from three children who have never experienced the Christmas traditions of presents and lights and candy that are so familiar to many American children. These three have faced fear, uncertainty, hunger and cold, but they have met people whose acts of selflessness brought them contentment and even joy. The children's messages of hope and happiness restore Santa's Christmas Spirit and faith in humanity. And Captain Candy Cane's gift shows how all of us can brighten the world we live in-wherever we are and whatever we believe-by living year-round according to values often associated with Christmastime. Creator/illustrator Georgia Pearson Williams has traveled around the world and seen many children's needs firsthand. Writer Jessica Vining Lower is an English professor and the mother of two young boys. Both Georgia and Jessica love Christmas, and believe that it is about much more than stockings and reindeer! read more

Tales from Africa, by Azubike Aliche, is a collection of eight folk tales. These stories capture the best in African mythology, ph...ilosophy and value system. They are adaptations of folk tales handed down from generations of Africans to entertain and educate the younger generation. Centered on animals, the stories teach about loyalty, valor, obedience, treachery and greed, among other virtues and vices. Since time immemorial, folk tales have been instruments of socialization in Africa. They are told as bedtime stories to children over fireplaces in the family hall. The are also told at village squares where children gather during moonlight for assorted entertainment and informal education. But these stories have messages for all kids that cut across geographical, racial and cultural boundaries. Indeed, for African American kids who want to know about Africa and their cultural heritage, these stories should prove invaluable. From the loyal dog to the wily tortoise; from the greedy lion to the fearless antelope and from the obedient only son to the once childless couple, curious and impressionable kids will have a lot in these stories to entertain them and task their imagination. To give them better context, the tales have been fortified with African proverbs and wise sayings. read more
