by KP Baker

Sometimes kids have a hard time performing in front of others. There could be a lot of anxiety for kids, whether they are shy or not, to get up in front of many people and do a performance. They could be worried about failing or simply too scared to even attempt it. This is what happened to Abby’s friend as their team practiced for the big cheerleading exhibition.

In “Cheerleader Abby and the Cheerleading Competition,” Abby and her cheerleading team are joining the conference exhibition. Abby is really excited about it, but one of her teammates is not. In fact, she is downright sad and scared about it. Abby’s teammate, Tammy, was afraid of performing in front of the large group that would be at the exhibition and she was afraid that she wouldn’t be able to do the dance well enough. In this book, Abby and Tammy explore together how much fun it can be to face their fears and try new experiences.

If you want to:

– Help your child learn that it is okay to be afraid, but that he or she should not let their fear stop them from doing things that they enjoy

– Teach your child the value of friendship and confiding their feelings to someone

– Show your child the pride and joy that they can feel from accomplishing something that they were afraid to try

Then “Cheerleader Abby and the Cheerleading Competition,” is the perfect book for you and your daughter. Abby’s journey with her friend Tammy will show your child that it is okay to be nervous about a new activity, but that she should never give up. As you read this book about cheerleading, you and your daughter can talk about the things that scares her or activities that she has avoided for fear of failing. Your daughter might even relate to Abby’s friend, Tammy in the story. Buy “Cheerleader Abby and the Cheerleading Competition” today and help your child overcome her fears and live life to the fullest!

A Kindle Christmas – Christmas Traditions Uncovered

by Jason Taylor

About A Kindle Christmas

Millions of people will wake up on Christmas morning and receive an Amazon Kindle. Those same millions of new Kindle users will be searching for their very first books from an Amazon library of millions and millions of books.
This will be their first fledgeling steps into the world of electronic books and e-book reading. It can be daunting for both the new Kindle users and anyone who is buying a Kindle as a gift for Christmas to know what books they would like.
This is why we have written “A Kindle Christmas – a look at Christmas traditions worldwide”. This is the perfect first book to purchase for a Christmas present or to â??gift’ it for your loved ones at Christmas.

As Christmas has progressed through the ages the essence of Christmas, the traditions of Christmas and the true meaning of Christmas have disappeared and been driven into a frenzied state of over commercialisation. On the television we see advertisements for Christmas many months prior to the actual big day. In shops around the globe the buildup for Christmas sometimes happens six months or before the actual event.

We asked many children what Christmas meant to them and 80% responded with answers similar to “it’s a time when we get presents”. Not give or receive presents at Christmas just receive. When we asked those same children the true meaning of Christmas, the response was pretty much the same. But, it’s not only children at faultâ?¦ Ask any adult why we have Christmas crackers?

Christmas, Xmas or the holiday season as it is known in many parts of the world is one of the most celebrated universal events, yet increasingly is becoming the least understood or appreciated.

“A Kindle Christmas”, looks at the various aspects of Christmas and traditions and gives you the answers as to why we have them.. It’s a book that really will give you the true answer to Christmas and the true meaning of Christmas around the world. You’ll be able to answer virtually any question a child will ask you about Christmas!

So whoever is your Father Christmas, Santa Claus, St Nicholas or Père Nöel make sure they know that you’ve been a very good boy or girl this year and deserve “A Kindle Christmas”.â??

Parents: if you’re sick and tired of re-reading the same old bedtime stories, you need this book! You’ll laugh so hard, your face will hurt!



Neverville

by Keith B Walters

Some writers take on writing challenges for fun, but this time round and for this writer it’s much more than that – it’s to write his children to a place of safety when an unseen author takes over his story and plunges his children into danger – taking them to a place of wonder and danger – dragging them into ‘Neverville’.

For Sam & Georgia what start out seeming like just ordinary and fun dreams, suddenly take a dark turn, with only the sound of their father’s keyboard and the characters he still has some control over to help them escape.

With wizards, fairies, trolls, mermaids, some familiar faces and some all new creatures in this new fantasy land, Neverville is a place both beautiful and deadly, with twists and turns that keep the children wide awake but still dreaming.

Written initially as a NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) project, Neverville was influenced by its own lead characters by being read to them each evening as a bedtime tale, leading to many of the more outlandish plot twists along the way. I hope that those sudden twists and the story coming in one large instalment, leaving the reader to choose where to stop each night, will give a few gasps and giggles to other children – as mine wanted it as an ebook so they can read their own adventures over and over again.

Coming soon…… ‘Forevermore’

After an afternoon of riding their bikes and playing their favorite game on Xbox, Nathan had no way of knowing this game would almost ruin Christmas Eve.

With the wind blowing, Nathan had his jacked zipped all the way up and the hood of his jacket protected his ears from the wind rippling past. The wool mittens his mother insisted he take with him, helped him ride his bike home with ease, ignoring the chill wind that turned the handle bars to ice.

In The Garden Of Goodwill

by Adriana Devoy

When Abby visits her neighbor, Goodwill, he insists they cannot bag his autumn leaves until he has counted them. He searches for his spoiled tabby cats, Josephine and Olivia, and despairs over a dying birch tree in his garden. Goodwill tells Abby that only Father Nature can save the tree. When Abby catches the last leaf of autumn, entitling her to a wish, she secretly wishes for an audience with Father Nature.

That evening, Abby spies the tabby cats trotting off into the moonlight dressed in peplum suits and periwinkle boots. A gold sleigh arrives in the midst of a sparkling snow shower to transport her through meadow, marsh, and forest to an enchanted garden where it is forever summer. She encounters an offbeat assortment of creatures along the way: quarrelling porcupines, hens with a penchant for card playing, mice and moles and rabbits engaged in the curious activity of inventorying dead autumn leaves and reviving them with the miraculous “Oil of Quince” cure.

Abby introduces her simple child’s knowledge into this magical world, and assists all whom she meets, though doing so causes her great delay in her quest. In the end, all the animals, recalling her kindness, rally around her when she, at last, faces the formidable Father Nature.

The little darling who was born with feed-and-play-on-demand talents is making his message clear: I want you…and I want you now! Ms. Ellis understands the world of the sleep-deprived and felt compelled to write a book that might make every family’s sleepless nights bearable. Thus, the first lines of the book:

“I was sleeping in my bed
and a dream was in my head
when…”

That baby woke me up, AGAIN!

Frank the Ant takes the train (Frank, the Ant)

by Arthur Lewis Gelston

An ant adventure for children age 8-11 reading above grade. Frank travels by train from Forest Hills to Freeport, Long Island, while exploring the brim of a hat, on another voyage of discovery.

Real ants don’t talk. But some ants make sounds by rubbing part of a leg across their abdomen so that a person listening very closely can hear the sound. There are no ant scientists or engineers, but some ants build structures using real engineering skills. This is a story about ants and other insects who talk, who live in organized societies, who plan for their future and change these plans when necessary, who go into battle and join voyages of exploration. Though a fantasy, the activities ascribed to ants in this book are, for the most part, REAL ant activities. The author has simply translated the ant language of odor and touch into words more easily recognized by people who read books.
