Follow Firenze, a feisty firefly, as she discovers the power of her light in this fun and encouraging story of friendship and self-appreciation. <br /><br />Firenze's friends love her light, but Firenze doesn't think it's so great. How can she when it's nearly impossible to play a good game of hide-and-seek?!! When Firenze's light and a new friend's artwork unexpectedly combine, she must decide whether she will keep her light hidden or find the courage to let it shine. <br /><br />No bullying-Let's model healthy friendships<br /><br />Firenze's Light is a beautifully illustrated picture book that sets itself apart by leaving out the bullying and shame found in many traditional children's books.

This book will compliment a collection with titles from authors like Eric Carle (The Very Hungry Caterpillar), Laurie Wright (I Can Handle It - Mindful Mantras) and Brandon Walden (Seeds and Trees). <br /><br />A book about loving who you are....even when it's difficult <br /><br />Embracing your differences doesn't happen overnight. It helps to have encouraging friends, positive language and patience. Author Jessica Collaco was inspired by authors like Rachel Hollis (Girl, Wash Your Face, Girl, Stop Apologizing), Brene Brown (Rising Strong, The Gifts of Imperfection) and Elizabeth Gilbert (City of Girls, Eat, Pray, Love) to create a book that encourages readers to shine from within. <br /><br />While Firenze twirled on the stage, she realized how powerful her light was. <br />It was creating magical art, joy for her friends, and happiness in her heart. <br />Suddenly, Firenze felt very grateful she was a firefly. <br /><br />Ideal for children ages 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8, this is the first in a series of books that reflect gentle parenting and nurture universal values that inspire and empower kids. Firenze's Light is a thoughtful gift for a baptism, baby shower, dance recital and birthday. Perfect for toddlers, preschool, kindergarten, first grade and second grade. Printed in the USA with environmentally-friendly materials.<br /><br />"Your light makes you unique," said her Mother. "No one shines just like you."

<DIV><I>The highly anticipated third book in the critically acclaimed and bestselling series takes the art of being wimpy to a whole new level. </I></P> </P>Let’s face it: Greg Heffley will never change his wimpy ways. Somebody just needs to explain that to Greg’s father. You see, Frank Heffley actually thinks he can get his son to toughen up, and he enlists Greg in organized sports and other “manly†? endeavors. Of course, Greg is able to easily sidestep his father’s efforts to change him. But when Greg’s dad threatens to send him to military academy, Greg realizes he has to shape up . . . or get shipped out.</P> </P>Greg and his family and friends, who make the <I>Diary of a Wimpy Kid </I>books a must-read for middle school readers, are back and at their best in this hilarious new installment of the series, which is sure to please current fans while attracting new ones.</P> </P><I>Publishers Weekly</I>-1/19/2009:</P><DIV>The third book in this genre-busting series is certain to enlarge Kinney’s presence on the bestseller lists, where the previous titles have taken up residence for the past two years. Kinney’s spot-on humor and winning formula of deadpan text set against cartoons are back in full force. This time, Greg starts off on New Year’s Day (he resolves to “help <I>other</I> people improve,†? telling his mother, “I think you should work on chewing your potato chips more quietly†?) and ends with summer vacation. As he fends off his father’s attempts to make him more of a man (the threat of military school looms), Greg’s hapless adventures include handing out anonymous valentines expressing his true feelings (“Dear James, You smell†?), attempting to impress his classmate Holly and single-handedly wrecking his soccer team’s perfect season. Kinney allows himself some insider humor as well, with Greg noting the “racket†? children’s book authors have going. “All you have to do is make up a character with a snappy name, and then make sure the character learns a lesson at the end of the book.†? Greg, self-centered as ever, may be the exception proving that rule. Ages 8†“12. <I>(Jan.)</I></DIV><DIV><I></I> </DIV><DIV><DIV>F&P level: T</DIV></DIV></DIV>

<b>A National Book Award Finalist for Young People’s Literature.<BR> Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s <i>The Great American Read.</i></b><BR> <BR><b>Ghost wants to be the fastest sprinter on his elite middle school track team, but his past is slowing him down in this first electrifying novel of a brand-new series from Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe Award–winning author Jason Reynolds.</b><BR><BR>Ghost. Lu. Patina. Sunny. Four kids from wildly different backgrounds with personalities that are explosive when they clash. But they are also four kids chosen for an elite middle school track team—a team that could qualify them for the Junior Olympics if they can get their acts together. They all have a lot to lose, but they also have a lot to prove, not only to each other, but to themselves.<BR> <BR>Running. That’s all Ghost (real name Castle Cranshaw) has ever known. But Ghost has been running for the wrong reasons—it all started with running away from his father, who, when Ghost was a very little boy, chased him and his mother through their apartment, then down the street, with a loaded gun, aiming to kill. Since then, Ghost has been the one causing problems—and running away from them—until he meets Coach, an ex-Olympic Medalist who sees something in Ghost: crazy natural talent. If Ghost can stay on track, literally and figuratively, he could be the best sprinter in the city. Can Ghost harness his raw talent for speed, or will his past finally catch up to him?
