This book was initially done as a project for the course Children's Literature whilst I was at college. Since I always loved delvi...ng into the world of the supernatural as a child, and still do as an adult, I decided to create a beautiful short story to encapsulate all the magic of the fairy tales from different parts of the world that I have ever read and seen on film. There is also mystery, fantasy, adventure, magic, and most of all, hope. I also included the beautiful island of Trinidad and Tobago, where I was born and reside. I have also always enjoyed reading about mysterious happenings taking place all over the world, along with mythical and mystical creatures that drive the imagination wild with wonder and adventure. This short story serves to envelop all these and more along with the beauty of familial connection and otherworldly adventures. Therefore, I have taken the world of supernatural fiction and the world of supernatural reality and created a fantasy short story that takes two siblings on a journey with a mysterious Witcxh into another world. A story that can be shared and enjoyed all over the globe, by both children and adults. read more

I cannot remember exactly when I understood what it meant to be born a Jew. That most of what happened to me was because I was a J...ew. In the same way, I cannot remember exactly the day I understood that the small shapes on paper was a language to be understood. That it was letters so neatly lined up on the white paper and kept between two covers, just like the Jews in ghetto and Lager. To be able to read and write has always been a sort of mystery to me. But deep inside, I have always recognized the power of knowing to read and write, and has become as important to me as life itself. A burden often, but also a source of joy. The search for answers has been like stumbling along a unknown uphill road. But as time has passed, the road itself became the answer. It has become important to make clear that the children of Holocaust was more than just numbers and statistics. We were ordinary children with the same dreams and hopes as children today. Lullabies for Annika was written in hope that the readers will be able to acknowledge that. Much of what is told, really events. The rest could have happened. read more

A bright-eyed third grader raised his hand and said his name was Janson too! It turned out he was the grandson of another of my brothers and I was thrilled to welcome another young person into my life. Ricky has written me several wonderful letters and he seemed like the perfect person to introduce my grandchildren to the wildlife of Ohio. Cousins Nathan and Tori visit their Uncle Dons farm in Ohio and explore the nearby woods with the help of their second cousin Ricky. Bears, bald eagles, deer and other wild animals cross the kids path while they fish, learn to drive a tractor, and visit the little white church. read more

All are experiences and memories of days when life was simpler, when family shared the work of running a farm and family was the center of our lives.

DEDICATION & THANK YOU Dear tiny angels, slippery tadpoles, and sugar bears everywhere! When I was little (just about your age), I... visited my grandparents in New Bedford, Massachusetts for summer vacations. Grandma always had fun lessons waiting for us "city kids" She brushed our hair, ironed our underwear, and hung the laundry on the clothesline while holding clothespins in her mouth! My brothers and sisters would race through the yard, screaming and yelling, tripping and falling, climbing the cherry tree, and getting our new clothes muddy or dusty or torn. She cooked every meal we ate. No restaurants for us, no sir! We had no television. Grandma said, "Read a book! Write a poem! Let's start a choir! Sing, children" Then she would sit at her piano and lullaby us to sleep after a hard day of having fun! When she had spare time, she would say, "Run and hide" This would end up being a fun game of PEEK-A-BOO . . . Grandma-style! Peek-a-boo was the most amazing, absolute best fun EVER for me! I dedicate my summer memories to Lucy Louise Green Barbour, my grandmother, my mentor, my cherry-pie-from-scratch baker! Now that I am a grandmother, I dedicate this book to Leah Renee, Lilah Gizelle, and Leslie Marie-my three granddaughters! "Run! Hide! Grandma's coming" Winifred "Oyoko" Loving St. Croix, United States Virgin Islands read more

The Kung-Fu Frogs' mission is fourth fold. Firstly, to introduce children from the ages of nine years and up to a positive, motiva...tional, educational, entertainment experience. Secondly, and very importantly, to teach and/or remind children of the major mental benefits of the martial arts: peace, justice, self-esteem, self-control, respect, confidence, discipline, gratitude, perseverance, and an indomitable spirit. Studies have shown that when children apply these principles to their schoolwork, their grades greatly improve. Kung-Fu was created to be a passive method of self-defense; and is based on studies of all life in nature. Thirdly, a recent televised national academic test scores report revealed that urban children aren't scoring as well as their suburban counterparts. Many of these suburban districts have a wealth advantage. However, the urban kids, upon graduation, will have to compete for the same college entrance procedures and in the same job markets as the children from wealthy districts. Therefore, all children, and especially the urban children, should apply the martial arts mental behavior principles to their lives, and schoolwork. Peace, justice, self-esteem, self-control, respect, confidence, discipline, gratitude, perseverance, and an indomitable spirit. Perhaps, these behavior traits, will surface as the real salvation for urban children when and where, there is less wealth applied for education. Fourthly, the martial arts provide people with a very good method of physical exercise for weight control, and over all good physical health. There is a childhood epidemic of obesity in America today. This obesity among very young people is creating life-threatening diseases, once found almost exclusively in adults: hypertension, type2 diabetes, sleep problems, liver and gall bladder disease. Kung-Fu Frogs merge the long interest of children with frogs and their proven practice and love of the Martial read more

On the Lower East Side of New York, there lives a gang of (animated) pigs. They escaped from a truck that was headed for a slaught...erhouse in the meatpacking district of Manhattan. They cleverly disguise themselves as humans and dress in urban fashion. They talk like humans and walk upright. They are street artists that donate the proceeds from the sale of their work to charity. Doc is their mentor and leader; he is their godfather so to speak. He has connections to the human world and is the conduit between the gang, their finances, and their patrons. The Eastside Pigs are anonymous philanthropic donors. They look a little bit like street urchins and a little bit like bad guys, but in reality, they are superheroes that help the old people, the children, and the poor that live in the slums of New York. Their wealthy patrons are at the top of the chic and trendy art world in New York. They purchase artwork at very high prices thinking that it is magical, magnificent, and extremely valuable. They live in their East Side headquarters under the subway system in New York. Their zany adventures take them to colorful places in New York such as SoHo, Chinatown, the Village, and Little Italy.

This children's book is a compilation of seven stories. The central characters in my book are just some of the adorable and unusua...l animals and birds seen during my childhood. Not far from our home, on the crest of the riverbank rose a huge leafless gum tree, long since dead. It was home to much birdlife and especially the very noisy cockatoos and galahs. As children we roamed all over our property with complete safety where we discovered an abundance of wildlife in their natural habitat. I started writing about Pete the Pesky Possum only a few years ago and from then on it just mushroomed. When I wrote about one character, another popped up, and I have many more just waiting for me to bring them to life. The only problems I encountered were to know when to stop. read more
