Cass and the Crooked Gate (a Bundy Street Adventure book Book 1)

by Marilyn Cram Donahue

When Cass and her brothers are sent to spend the summer with their aunt by the beach, everything in Cass’s life seems to go wrong. It isn’t just the house they have to live in, which hangs so far over the ocean it seems like it might fall in, or her unusual aunt who appears and disappears at the strangest times and places. But her new friends, Tina and Hal, are causing trouble, too. Tina offers Cass a place within her group of friends, but at a price. Then there is tall, handsome Hal, an outsider because he is deaf, but who seems to understand Cass in a special way. Before the summer is over, Cass will make remarkable discoveries about herself and be forever changed.

PRAISE FOR CASS AND THE CROOKED GATE:

“Spending the summer with strange Aunt Mathailda in her even stranger house was not 13-year-old Cass’s idea of fun, especially with two pesty younger brothers. She couldn’t figure out good-looking Hal either, who seemed at peace with the world in spite of his deafness. Cass’s mother knew that Aunt Mathilda was just the person to straighten out a self-centered teenager and her brothers, and before the summer was over, remarkable discoveries were made by all and lives were changed as Aunt Mathilda ministered to each in her own special way.” – Librarian’s World

Harry Webb in ‘A Potato With Her Name On’

by Jason Pinnington

The name’s Webb, Harry Webb, spider and private detective. Most people find what I do exciting, chases, shootouts, chases, fist fights, chases, escapes – you get the idea, there’s a lot of chases. Not me, I prefer the stakeout, hours sitting on some Liverpool street watching, waiting, eating, drinking coffee… minimal fees, minimal risk.

Then a job lands at my feet, a job I can’t refuse because it’s the only way out of a hole I’m in. A high profile job for a high profile client, with secrets that need to stay secret. A job that’s tougher than an overcooked steak and keeps me looking over my shoulder at every turn.

As I start drawing up a list of suspects and motives, making more enemies than friends, I realise that my job isn’t the only thing at stake here… there’s my life…

Age 8+

Children’s Book: Raymond’s Uncut Diamond: (Children’s Picture Book On How To Develop Self Esteem And Confidence) (Ages 4-8) (Inspiring Children Books Collection)

by Assaf Marcus

*********** Amazon Prime Members can download this book for FREE! ***********

Developing your child’s self-esteem and confidence

Dr. Sears reports that self-esteem is your child’s passport to a lifetime of mental health and social happiness. A children’s story that explores the meaning of true value and potential is a very powerful tool for the development of any child. When you share this story, your child will be inspired to think of his or her own potential and self-worth, just like the main character.

Raymond’s Uncut Diamond takes your child on a journey with a young boy named Raymond, who is given a stone by his Grandpa and sent to the market. While trying to find the right price for his Grandpa’s stone, Raymond learns of its true value, as well as his own.

  • Will Raymond succeed in selling his Grandpa’s shiny stone?
  • Will Raymond get the advice he wants from his Grandpa?
  • What will he learn about true value in his own life?

The lesson of the book is best expressed in this inspirational quote by Joyce Meyer: “Potential is a priceless treasure, like gold. All of us have gold hidden within, but we have to dig to get it out.”

Raymond’s Uncut Diamond is a well-written, inspiring story that will help you to teach your child the meaning of the true value within. This book was created to help with your child’s:

Self-esteem: Positive self-esteem helps children in their interactions with others and their ability to face life’s many challenges. It reminds them that they are worthy of love and accomplishment, and this will stay with them into adulthood. As most children learn their self-worth from their parents, it is very important that parents share stories like Raymond’s in order to promote positive self-esteem from a young age.

“Can-do attitude”: Children who repeat “I can’t” often seek attention and acceptance through harmful behaviors. However, this book encourages your child to put in effort to become better in everything he or she does. The book reinforces the view that not being good at something is a temporary state and encourages children to accept the responsibility to strive and work to become better.

Raymond’s Uncut Diamond is an entertaining read before bedtime, with the whole family, or as self-reading for older children. Additionally, it is a great resource for teachers and counselors to share with individual students or in a class.

With vibrant, delightful illustrations and easy-to-digest lessons, children will become sharp and shining like their true value!!!

My Own TOEIC Nouns-Alpha: For Those Under 600 in English and Korean (My Own TOEIC Words Book 4)

by Won-gil Park

{ P R E F A C E}

Every night, I have sent my English study contents as well as my own short words to the members of my cyber space, Raoul Teacher’s English Empire (http://cafe.daum.net/beyondthetoeic

) during 2006 – 2009. These words were the ones that I organized scientifically for the members there including a girl student who had cried so much to see me off.

In fact, I, Raoul Teacher, (=Park, Won-gil) have always thought about new ways of teaching English every day like ten years of time is just a day. My pupils that left me including that girl were the biggest motivation of my all efforts.

I want my words, TOEIC vocabularies by myself, to help English learners improve their own English scores such as those of TOEIC, TOEFL, SAT and the like.
