The Donkey and the King (Donkey Series for Children)

by Lorilyn Roberts

“The Donkey and the King” is an allegorical story of love. A donkey longs for an easier life beyond the stable. He dreams of no heavy burdens to bear and no one to tell him what to do.

After leaving the safety of the stable, however, he becomes lost in the wilderness. A sheep finds him after being sent by the king. With his new friend, the donkey sets out on an unusual journey to overcome his greatest fear.

The reader will find “good” hidden in the artwork, and children will delight in searching for the word on each page. If you have fond memories of looking for the mouse in “Goodnight Moon” you will want to share this book with your child. A link and QR code is provided to assist parents in finding the hidden word if needed. The moral in this story:  There is “good” in the world if you look (and listen) for it.

When a mad knight wanders into town, pursued by a ghostly enemy and carrying the accursed sword, a local boy finds himself in the middle of the looming confrontationâ??a boy with no name, a boy with no chance to prove himself, but who may have a surprising part to play.

Military Kids Speak: Celebrating the Way You Think About Being a Military Kid

by Julie Rahm

Military kids and deployments…
Military kids and moving…
Military kids education…
Military kids and making friends…
Now there is help for military kids!

Do you know children who are suffering from the fears, challenges and pain that come from being part of a military family?
Are you worried the military lifestyle is harming your child or grandchild?
Are your children having trouble focusing in school?
Are they displaying feelings of anger or despair?
Are they reacting with resentment?

Maybe you are feeling the despair of not know how to ease their pain.
Now you have the ultimate solution.
Military Kids Speak teaches children that they are not alone, and offers solutions from peers on how to exhale back into the delights of childhood.
You’ll learn how to be happy from kids living with the usual challenges of childhood while also dealing with war.

After reading this book, you and your children will never look at military family life the same way again.
You’ll be able to immediately interpret negative emotions and adapt to any situation.
Living the military lifestyle will become a much easier task.
You will be happy because you have a better understanding of yourself, your reactions, and your family members.
It’s like your eyes will be opened to the world for the very first time.

Imagine being 10 years old again, standing in an airport or train station, and watching your mother or father board a plane or train for a war zone, not knowing if you will ever see them again.
Many military kids have had that experience three times by age 13.
With the right outlook, they develop emotional resilience beyond their years.

Celebrating the role military families play in the success of America as well as their individual accomplishments, Military Kids Speak by author Julie Rahm is a fascinating and inspired account of what it takes to be a military kid. It’s a team effort with a common goal; the mission is to describe what it means to be a part of a military family, what it takes to persevere when it comes to deployments, and living abroad. It’s also a candid account of the military lifestyle, and how special it is to be a child of a hero. In two parts and seventeen chapters with titles like “Military Kids Speak about Deployments”, “Military Kids Speak about Living Abroad”, and “Military Kids Speak about Making Friends”, this engaging, conversational book begins with over two dozen essays written by today’s military kids. These young authors, aged ten to sixteen, discuss the rollercoaster ride of military life, it’s perks and privileges, as well as its hardships and heartaches, while the second half comprises twelve in-depth interviews with famous former military kids like Justice Leah Ward Sears, Newt Gingrich, Shaquille O’Neal, and Mark Hamill. Being a military kid is specia – a childhood spent with the military is an adventure. This first volume of Military Kids Speak is a narrative of what American kids of servicemen and servicewomen sacrifice for their country day in and day out all over the world – and what they have to say about it.

Teenage Goddess (Children of New Olympus)

by May Burnett

Teenage Goddess

Myra is the daughter of Zeus and his wife Hera. She and her younger brother are the only children born to the gods in the centuries since they moved to New Olympus. Now sixteen and the spoilt darling of the Gods, Myra has a special birthday wish: to spend a term in a human boarding school, where the famous teenage idol, actor/singer Jason Mackenzie is also enrolled.

Myra gets her wish, but has to leave her divine powers behind, – including the glamour that can effortlessly attract any human to her. As powerless as any human girl, she has her work cut out for her to even attract Jason’s attention. Would-be rivals and interfering Gods betting on the outcome do not make her job any easier. Her brother is also along for the ride, just as well, as it turns out…

Power games, jealousy, love, hopes and fears combine in this entertaining novella-length story (about one third of a standard full-length novel).



Teenagers Eulogy

by Wayne Bryant

It happens much too often, someone goes on a killing spree and murders our friends or loved ones without cause or provocation, we weep and ask why? Death is a subject no one likes to discuss at length whether young or old. Yet death and taxes are a certainty. I thought it best to write about this subject and alert our young people as well as older folk to this possibility and how to cope with it.

Marie was not sure what was happening when she tearfully finished the eulogy for her best friend Betty. Was she seeing a ghost? This wasn’t a dream. Could she have crossed over to the other side for one final visit? Wait a minute, this is all so strange. It is not over yet. Someone else has something to say. Teenagers Eulogy takes you through the death of friends and finds happiness in closure.
