Once upon a time…

A Professor Stork decided to deliver something special to the children of the world. A whole new collection of books that would excite, nurture a sense of purpose…

Books that would teach them leadership skills and respect their innate abilities.

First came Penelope and Jack, a 5 Star must-read book about the power of kindness and friendship.
Penelope and Jack, Together Apart is a story your children will love, with a message you will cherish.

While social distancing in his family’s ‘above the clouds’ apartment, Jack develops a close ‘balcony’ friendship with Penelope. Communicating across the empty space between their balconies, Jack and Penelope show us that even in difficult times human connection and kindness prevail.

My 6-year-old grandson and I read this book 3 times and loved it. He was enthralled by the story and connected with Jack’s cool and clever way to find a new friend. The book also created an opportunity for a deeper conversation about the pandemic. Since it ends with hope and positivity, it’s a great learning tool.

Available now: Plastic in the ocean is no problem for the Sky Watch team of cloud heroes.
In the award winning Legend of the Summer Snowflake, book 1 in the Sky Watch series, the amazing team of cloud heroes saves a baby dolphin stuck in a floating plastic patch and keeps others safe from the debris. The Legend of the Summer Snowflake delivers a powerful and positive message for children about environmental challenges facing the planet we live on, and how by working together those challenges might be overcome.
Sometimes a short picture book can teach more about a subject than a week in the library. That is the case here. Plastic in the ocean is a big deal and this book captures the essence with great characters and a clear message. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

Summer 2022: Meet The Artists, a picture book series for ages 3 – 9, Book 1 – Evy Loe, What Do You Know?

Viewing the world through the eyes of working artists is a wonderful way for children to learn that people of all backgrounds and nationalities are more alike than different. In this first book in the series, Evy Loe’s dad takes her to a local art gallery and the pictures come to life. She learns about life on a farm and meets the artist and the incredible animals the artist paints.

My daughter loves this book. The illustrations are amazing and she loves getting to read about the animals she calls friends. Such a great read to help build imagination and a love for art!

Summer 2022, In The Corner of My Room
Silas proudly paints his name on the living room wall in a bright red color and shows it off proudly to one and to all. Not surprisingly his mom isn’t all that happy and sends him to the corner to think about what he did.
Everyone loves a story where a kid turns the tables on his or her parents in a way that is fun and respectful. This book does that in spades. You’ll love every page of the adventure Silas takes you on as the corner of his room becomes magical.
My daughter loves this book. The illustrations are amazing and she loves getting to read about the animals she calls friends. Such a great read to help build imagination and a love for art!

Fall 2022, Silas Hears the Hippo Call
Join Silas, a rambunctious eight-year-old, when he visits the local zoo. He loves to watch and interact with all the animals, but when he runs past the hippopotamus without even looking her way, Mortitia is quite insulted and lets Silas know it.

Through beautifully written rhyming dialogue Silas and Mortitia overcome their differences and become great friends. The book shares a strong message of caring and friendship.

When Silas’s trip to the zoo is interrupted by Mortitia the hippo, a conversation about friendship follows. My son loved the book and made me promise to take him to the zoo next weekend. I’m sure he’s expecting the animals to talk to him.
