This story is for the kids who toss the bat to choose captains and pick teams, playing in a neighborhood field or an empty lot. You’ll find no coaches, no concession stands, and sometimes just an old bat and ball. But once the first pitch is thrown, you’ll find the real heart and soul of America. You’ll find baseball in its purest form. And if you look a little closer, you’ll find something more. Millions of children, here and abroad, do not experience the joy of playing sports with friends for lack of equipment and this book not only shines a spotlight on the situation, but a portion of all proceeds is donated to three non-profit organizations, Pitch In For Baseball, Sports Gift, and Good Sports, that provide sports equipment to kids who would otherwise go without. Endorsed by professional baseball players, Jack Hannahan, Robb Quinlan, Sean Casey, and future hall-of-famer, Craig Biggio, and teamed up with Louisville Slugger, Rawlings, and Modell’s Sporting Goods, this title will help ensure that all kids have a glove of their own.

Lena is Trille’s best friend, even if she is a girl. And there is never an ordinary day when you’ve got a best friend like Lena.

Hardly a day passes without Trille and Lena inventing some kind of adventure that often ends in trouble. Whether it’s coaxing a cow onto a boat or sledding down the steepest and iciest hill with a chicken, there is always a thrill—and sometimes an injury—to be had. Trille loves to share everything with Lena, even Auntie Granny’s waffles. But when Lena has to move away and Auntie Granny leaves the world, it sometimes seems like nothing will ever be right again. The warmth of friendship and the support of family suffuse this lightly illustrated novel, proving that when times are tough, a little taste of sweetness can make all the difference.

Before 1918, the Boston Red Sox were unstoppable. They won World Series after World Series, thanks in part to their charismatic pitcher-slugger Babe Ruth. But some people on the Red Sox felt the Babe was more trouble than he was worth, and he was traded away to one of the worst teams in baseball, the New York Yankees. From then on, the Yankees became a golden team. And the Red Sox? For over 80 years, they just couldn’t win another World Series. Then, in 2004, along came a scruffy, scrappy Red Sox team. Could they break Babe Ruth’s curse and win it all?

Do you think a mouse can fly? One Christmas Carlotte Otten’s son gave her a fly he had tied, a mouse with red and green stripes which became the inspiration for this story. Teaming up with illustrator Greg Crawford, she takes us on a journey, part real, part fantasy, into the world of fly fishing and a little mouse. In the spirit of Hemingway’s Up in Michigan stories and Maclean’s A River Runs Through It, Otten’s endearing story is nice addition to the books on fly fishing for children. Readers, both adult and children, will be caught up in the intricacies of fly fishing and the little flying mouse’s journey. What more can you ask for, adventure, colorful illustrations, lots of new and interesting information, this book has it all. The captivating text of Charlotte Otten and realistic paintings of Greg Crawford bring this story to life and whether you are the reader or are being read to, this book is a pleasure for all ages. Charlotte Otten, a life-long resident of the Great Lakes, spent summers exploring the shores. She now resides in Grand Rapids, MI. She would often wander into small streams, where she watched the hatches of bugs, fished for brook trout, listened to the sounds of the woods, and even once caught sight of a rare animal, a fisher, gently swimming under a natural bridge at a waterfall. When her son grew older and started tying flies, she enjoyed seeing a deer hair caddis, a bead head serendipity, a humpy, a frog. Her poems on fishing have appeared in many journals. She is the author of a number of books for adults and children, including January Rides the Wind, a three starred book awarded ‘Best Book of the Year’ by the Bank Street College of Education and by Booklist. Greg Crawford has been an artist since he first learned to hold a crayon. He began working professionally while he was still in high school. He has enjoyed a rich and varied career that has demanded versatility. He has done everything from technical illustration to cartoons and caricatures, but he loves children’s books. He has illustrated many over the years, including Tai Chi for Kids, Mr. Meow’s ABC Book, and Mr. Meow Goes to the Shelter, which he wrote under the pseudonym, Mr. Meow.

Jesse Owens grew up during the time of Jim Crow laws, but segregation never slowed him down. After setting world records for track in high school and college, he won a slot on the 1936 U.S. Olympic team. That year, the Olympics were in Berlin, then controlled by the Nazis, and Hitler was certain they would be a chance to prove to the world that Aryans were superior to all other races. But the triumph of Jesse’s will helped him run through any barrier, winning four gold medals and the hearts of millions, setting two world records, and proving the Nazi dictator unmistakably wrong.

The story of Jesse Owens comes alive for young readers with Carole Boston Weatherford’s award-winning free verse poetry. Eric Velasquez tackles this challenging subject with the use of pastels for the first time in twenty years-a technique that is both heart-stopping and immediate.

One night, Rigel Chase made a lush alien forest filled with human and animal warriors appear right in his backyard. What are shapers? They’re you and me and every human that has ever lived. On Earth, humans are pretty ordinary. But in Teramind, humans are world makers that can do almost anything.

That forest that appeared in Rigel’s backyard? Rigel made that. All of it. Everything that lives there? He made it too. Ari, the boy warrior with the spear and warpaint, and his bear sidekick Ekta? Rigel made them too? Bo, the fox warrior,and Arrow the raccoon? Pin the fireburrow? The mysterious dragon-man of the forest? And that kinda nutso wild boy of the forest Rip? Rigel made them all.

Shapers can do even more. Want superpowers? Rigel’s got them. And it’s a good thing, too.

Because there’s a downside to being a shaper. All sorts of evil vermin,monsters and sorcerers want the shaper energy you produce. For those of us on Earth, that’s not a problem. But Rigel has crossed over to the other side. That means scaly, slimy clawed monsters, mutant vines and teeth bearing worms are after Rigel.

But again, humans are shapers. And shapers never, never go down easy…
