Read an Excerpt

A noise from overhead stopped Sancho in his tracks. At first he thought it might just be his imagination, but as he took another step a voice called out, “Please don’t leave us!” He scanned the surrounding trees but he couldn’t see a thing. He’d never heard of talking trees, but on such a strange day as this he assumed anything was possible.
Just then Sydney returned. “Come on, Sancho! We haven’t got all day!”
“But, Sydney!” cried Sancho, “I think these trees are talking to me!”
Sydney stared up into the thick blanket of leaves. “Hello,” he called. “Is anyone up there or has my friend lost his marbles?”
To both their amazement, a small boy dropped out of a nearby tree and landed just a few steps from where they stood. “Hello,” said the boy. “My name’s Chip Horn.”
“I see,” said Sydney, “and do you live all alone up there in that tree?”
Chip giggled. “Oh no,” he said, “my mother and father are up there as well. But they’re too scared to climb down. I told them the crocodile was gone, but now they’re not so sure about you.”

Musk Ox, our rambunctious anti-hero, literally chews through the cover of this anarchic alphabet book. Having eaten the apple that A was supposed to be for, he blithely inserts himself, claiming A is for Musk Ox—because musk oxen are Awesome and live in the Arctic, which includes Alaska! Zebra, his nemesis, is less than thrilled.

And so this cantankerous couple lead the reader on a romp through the alphabet with Musk Ox claiming every letter for himself, and Zebra doing his level best to keep him under control. Filled with Matthew Myers’s hilarious artwork with lots of hidden details for kids to explore, this may be the funniest alphabet book ever created.

Acclaimed children’s author V. R. Duin does it again in The Amazing Flight of Little Ray, a frolicking, fabulously fun, and flighty tale of what a bored stingray will do to spice up his day. Capturing the very best of rhyme and alliteration, V. R. Duin brings yet another larger than life character to the page to spark beginning readers’ imaginations. Little Ray can’t think of anything better to do today than fly the friendly skies. The only thing holding him back is the fact that he is a sea-bound stingray, which, for him, proves to be only a minor setback. When he hurls himself into the air, it will take a little luck, a little ingenuity, and some feathery help from above to return him to the cool salty waters. Thank goodness, Little Ray has a lot of gumption and even more panache; it will come in handy during this soaring adventure.

Originally designed for children with autism who struggle to connect with others, Donnie Makes New Friends provides a simple way for ANY child to understand a basic skill of human communication: eye contact and a welcoming face.

The pencil-line illustrations by Charles Gibson skillfully compliment the text and provide a wonderful coloring book opportunity to reinforce this important lesson. The cover is published in black and white as to not give the reader a preconceived notion as to how he should color the interior pages, thus allowing the child to express his own imagination and creativity. The result is a must-own book for any child. Tullgren weaves a story both touching and impactful for young hearts and minds.

REVIEWS:
“As one of the few children’s books that address LGBT issues, it serves as a conduit by which to bolster understanding in our community. The book plays a vital role in creating a brighter future for our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth and their parents.” CA State Senator Mark Leno

“It is a parent’s responsibility to teach their children tolerance of all people, and I have yet to find a better tool to begin that lesson than My Uncle’s Wedding.” Alan Chin – Writer, Examiner.com

“It’s never too early to teach our nation’s children about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender equality. And ‘My Uncle’s Wedding’ does just that, showing children that marriage is about love and family. Eric Ross perfectly demonstrates that LGBT families share the same values as any other family, and his book will undoubtedly educate and inform generations to come about the freedom to marry. Bravo!” Kate Kendell, Esq. – Executive Director, National Center for Lesbian Rights

“This children’s book is the perfect gift for any child who loves a good story and especially children with gay people in their family. The author approaches the subject of same-sex marriage with a child’s sensitivity and sensibility, and the beautiful illustrations are sure to be enjoyed by kids and parents alike.” Molly McKay – National Media Director, Marriage Equality USA

“My Uncle’s Wedding” celebrates love from a young nephew’s point of view of his favorite uncle’s beautiful wedding.  Eric Ross has written a wonderful, heartwarming and important book in today’s climate — a beautiful educational tool for children — showing that all love is equal and good.” Del Shores – Writer/Director, Sordid Lives

“Everyone agrees that children should learn in an “age-appropriate” manner, but it’s also important that they learn tolerance and respect for everyone. With My Uncle’s Wedding, parents and teachers alike will have a great book to teach young children that a gay marriage is just like any marriage – it’s about two people who love each other.” Paul Hogarth – Writer, BeyondChron

Have you ever felt alone? Can you remember a time when you thought you weren’t good enough? Maybe you have even felt ugly before?

Sophie certainly knows how you feel.

Sophie was created a Christmas sweater and was feeling on top of the world when she was chosen to be featured in a newspaper ad. For one day, she was shipped off and was the model for a glamorous photo shoot.

Her feeling of joy faded when she got back to Warehouse City and had to quickly learn to understand and find the best way to work with all the different personalities of the other sweaters. With compassion and humor, Sophie was able to turn those who started out as adversaries into allies.

These were skills she would need when she arrived at the Superstore, the place where her forever person would find her. During her short stay at the store, before Katie purchased her, Sophie had the opportunity to watch and observe human nature in a big way as the masses of holiday shopper descended when the doors opened each day. All of the things she learned would be needed for what was to come.

At first, Sophie believed she was the happiest sweater in the world. The perfect forever person had chosen her, and she even heard her talk about going to a Christmas party and being entered into a best sweater contest. Sophie was alive with excitement, especially when she found out that Katie was going to “bling” her out. Oh the glitz, the glam, Sophie was loving it all.

First came the garland. Then the blinking lights. Next it was larger ornaments and presents under the tree. Being an over-achiever, Katie also added bells, bows, a purple peacock, a raccoon, an elf, a floating Santa head, an angel and candy canes all over her right arm!

Sophie was feeling like a freak show and wondered why her forever person would want to change her so much. Why wasn’t she good enough just the way she was?

With the help and support of her new family, Sophie learned some new coping skills that allowed her to grow and gain from the feelings she once had. With these new skills in place, what once seemed overwhelming was now simple and easy. Life was good. Until…..

One evening, Sophie and the family that had been attached to her were left on the kitchen table. There before her, Sophie saw things that caused her world to crash in around her. In plain sight, was an invitation to the party she was going to with the prompt to Get Your Ugly On! $100 to the winner of the UGLY SWEATER CONTEST.

As her heart sunk, she glanced to the right and saw a newspaper advertisement. What it said made her go numb.

There on the open page was a picture of her. It was one that had been taken when she had been sent to model at the photo shoot.

UGLY SWEATER SALE the words above her head screamed.

She had been created… no, she had been born to be ugly. Her only purpose in life was to be a hideous amusement. Sophie was heart-broken and saw no reason for her worthless, pathetic life.

Thanks to the love and understanding of her adopted family, Sophie came to learn her true value. Having come to love herself, she was able to offer those around her so much more, which made her feel even better. She was also able to let her challenges turn her into a champion!

Join Sophie as she shares real life solutions to the opportunities for growth that present themselves in our lives. When you delight in these pages, you will come to love Sophie and feel both her trials and her triumphs. Take this journey now and engage in a delightful ride that will capture hearts of all ages during all seasons.

Sophie’s journey allows young people to witness and learn some of the struggles they may come across and offers real life solutions. Readers are invited to explore opportunities and possibilities to every day challenges that will allow them to grow into confident adults with better relationship and coping skills.

Truman Capote’s boyhood Christmas memoir rereleased in a beautiful new package, which includes a CD with the audio version of the text.

     The classic story of Truman Capote’s childhood Christmas ritual is more endearing than ever in this newly redesigned package.

     In celebration of A Christmas Memory‘s enduring appeal, this repackaged edition retains Beth Peck’s evocative watercolors and an audio CD narration by the venerable Celeste Holm (originator of the Ado Annie role in the 1943 Broadway hit “Oklahoma!” and an Academy Award-winning actress). Originally published in 1956, this is the story from Capote’s childhood of lovingly making fruitcakes from scratch at Christmas-time with his elderly cousin, and has stood the test of time to become known as an American holiday classic. In its new size, it’s perfect for reading alone or reading aloud, or following along while listening to the audio version.

When it was first published, Crossing Bok Chitto took readers by surprise. This moving and original story about the intersection of Native and African Americans received starred reviews and many awards, including being named an ALA Notable Children’s Book and a Jane Addams Honor Book. Jeanne Rorex Bridges’ illustrations mesmerized readers—Publishers Weekly noted that her “strong, solid figures gaze squarely out of the frame, beseeching readers to listen, empathize and wonder.”

Choctaw storyteller Tim Tingle blends songs, flute, and drum to bring the lore of the Choctaw Nation to life in lively historical, personal, and traditional stories.

Artist Jeanne Rorex Bridges traces her heritage back to her Cherokee ancestors.
