Read Review

Equipped with a backpack full of supplies, Polo sets off on a little boat–and on a series of delightful adventures that take him across (and under) the ocean, to an island and a frozen iceberg, to space and home again, with a world of magical encounters along the way. Polo’s journey is packed with incident and expression; 80 pages of seamless, satisfying picture storytelling are perfectly targeted to the youngest reader. Unique, dynamic, and playful, The Adventures of Polo calls to mind the worlds of film animation, comics, and classic books from Harold and the Purple Crayon to The Snowman–and has style, appeal, and substance all its very own.

Free downloadable Audio book Included with purchase.

Kids Living Large! A mysterious teacher, adventures, bullies, a big mean dog and super heroes all wrapped together! — Do you have BIG dreams? Every kid (adults too) dreams of living out big dreams and having great adventures, but can you still “live large” after an injury or when born with a disability? This book is about living out Better Dreams – Even When it seems that you have limitations and the walls and barriers around you appear insurmountable.

You’ll find that the possibilities are endless when you have a “Miss Quince” by your side! Disabled superheroes? Children’s adventures from a wheelchair or using a cane? Impossible, right? Well, not when you meet Miss Quince. You see, in the beautiful bay-side town of Windswept, comes this teaching-dynamo named Miss Quince who brings with her an amazing and delightful ability – she completely transforms the lives of her disabled students. The band of bullies had best beware, for there’s a “new sheriff” in town and she’s bringing with her the most unlikely group of super-heroes this world has ever imagined.

Book Themes Include: Courage under pressure, overcoming bullying, perseverance, true friendships, excellent teacher model, living large in spite of a disability, and genuine super heroes!

Special needs student’s bring very different gifts and abilities “to the table”. They appear to be “disabled” with autism, or downs syndrome, blindness, cerebral palsy or spinal injuries or the like, but are they? You see, the students in Windswept are about to receive a whole new understanding of just how really GREAT, being different can be.

In this episode, you’ll follow Marcus and his new Can-Do Crew friends as Marcus starts a whole new way of living after a life-changing injury. Soon enough, he’ll find that being disabled is simply a bit of an inconvenience and NOT the handicap that most think it is – in fact, he’s never had so much fun before. It begins when he enters the classroom behind the yellow door and finds among this unlikely group of students, a CAN-Do spirit, and with it some very cool and unique skills.

Children from 9-12, but frankly kids and adults of all ages dream of being something special, a hero who can “slay giants”. This soon to be a best seller will warm your heart, bring a tear to your eyes and most of all give you, your kids and anyone battling a disability – brand new hope. Yes, it really is possible to maximize whatever talent God has given you, and Miss Quince will pave the way for that to happen. This book brings a “magical” touch to kindle children’s books, but more than magical, it’s filled with courage and possibilities.

The authors bring their own unique understanding to this book. In that, Mark is disabled from a spinal injury, Katie works with disabled kids as a speech-language pathologist and together they have one son who is autistic. As such, they add heart and authenticity to their writing.

Who’s this book for?

* “Kids” of all ages, able and disabled.
* Disabled children.
* Parents of special needs kids.
* Special education teachers.
* Parents/teachers who want to teach their “normal” kids that kids with disabilities are pretty “normal” too.
* Dreamers and adventurers who want to dream big and live large.

So hold on to your seats, this “train” is about to leave the station…Miss Quince is in town and she’s gonna shake things up.

** A free audio book version is included – see the table of contents for the audio download after purchase.

10. Pippi Moves In (Pippi Longstocking Comics)

THE LOST MASTERPIECE FROM ASTRID LINDGREN’S CHILDREN’S CLASSIC

Pippi Moves In marks the first time that the legendary Pippi Longstocking comics by the famed children’s author and creator Astrid Lindgren and Danish illustrator Ingrid Vang Nyman will be published outside of Scandinavia in thirty years, as well as their first ever publication in English. The outspoken strong-girl with the carrot-colored pigtails and the mismatched socks has enthralled generations of children the world over with her fabulous exploits at Villa Villekulla, where she lives with her horse and monkey. Countless translations of the chapter books are available in more than sixty languages. Pippi is Sweden’s best-known children’s export, making it all the more remarkable that D+Q has discovered what will be a three-volume series.

The comics are re-imaginings of the classic chapter book stories and were originally published in the Swedish magazine Humpty Dumpty in 1957–1959, a decade after the original books. The comics spotlight both Lindgren’s brilliant writing and Vang Nyman’s bold bright colors that seem presciently and eerily modern. The original illustrator for the chapter books, Vang Nyman was an avant-garde champion of the importance of children’s literature who insisted that art in children’s books needed to meet the same esthetic standards as art in any other medium. Sadly Vang Nyman never achieved international success, and tragically committed suicide in 1959 due to mental health issues, while Lindgren went on to become one of the world’s best-loved writers with more than 145 million books sold worldwide.

Similar to D+Q’s 2005 unearthing of the Tove Jansson’s Moomin comic strip, which has more than 100,000 units in print, these mid-century classics are waiting to be discovered and enjoyed by the world’s legions of Pippi fans, both young and old.

My name is Lisa Weldon. I am the author of HandiCAPABLE. I’d like to take a moment to introduce you to the main character of this book named Lola. She is a five year old vibrant little girl who is wheelchair bound. Lola considers herself to be a princess as opposed to being handicapped. Lola’s wheelchair, better known as the “princess mobile,” shows how much she loves anything to do with the princess theme. She possesses great qualities likes strength and compassion. Lola is wise beyond her years. In this book we see how Lola’s positive personality enables her to accept her circumstances, yet be hopeful about them changing. My hope is that through Lola, the readers will be inspired and encouraged by seeing how this courageous little girl embraces her life. My dream is for this book HandiCAPABLE and it’s main character, Lola, to give a voice to children with special needs. HandiCAPABLE, a book that the entire family can be inspired by and enjoy!
