This series is getting great reviews. I think I’ll start on this one next.

From Kirkus Reviews, “The fast-moving plot is filled with clever details and magical intrigue. … [Forsyth] develops her characters with aplomb…creating an adventure that is more than just an exciting story. … Well-crafted heroic fantasy for readers just stepping into the genre.”

This series written for ages 9-13 has four main characters, two boys and two girls, making it perfect for both. Readers who love fantasy and everything magical will be hooked. Do yourself a favor and get all five. For more on this series, click here.

12032962_10153287138644983_4910941088961530721_nI want to share with you a comment from a small elementary school’s club. They are currently doing our CARDS FOR A CAUSE FUNDRAISER and they had this to say about the program.

“This is the easiest fundraiser I’ve ever done! One of my girls said she asked a few neighbors if they’d like to order the cards and they were very happy to – they liked that it was 30 cards for $30 and that the cards were so nice. The little girl said ‘all you have to do is ask and they buy them!’ “11988360_10153287138234983_272295816896363365_n

Yay, it’s finally here!

12027550_10153681532294809_3118894892065702213_n (1) I’ve been waiting for this since I saw it at our National Convention this summer.  Not only is it a bright, beautifully-illustrated thesaurus but this one includes games and tips for writing. This is so much fun, you’ve got to see it! Take a look and let me know if you want one (or more) for your family or classroom collection.

Historical fiction and horse fans all rolled into one

Set in historic Roman times this is a fantastic pick for ages 10 and up.  With courage and determination, the blacksmith’s 0004729_300daughter successfully raises a sickly abandoned foal that later becomes the pride of the Roman cavalry.  With lots of action and suspense, this series is sure to become a favorite.  My teen daughter and I both loved it!  Start with Minna’s Quest, then No Turning Back and finally Far from Home.  Or get the whole series for $3 less.

Great addition to the Summer Reading list for ages 11-15

Looking for an exciting series to keep your middle-schooler reading over the summer?  This series is great for the lone reader or as the topic of a summer reading group. (Discussion questions are available at kanemiller.com)

I remember having some of these art books a long time ago but now, I think you have to be looking for them.  I haven’t run across something like this in my local grocery store book selection lately.  These are so much fun you’ll probably want to join in.  I’ve included a video of the Magic Painting Book.  You just have to see it for yourself.

Isn’t that delightful?  I wish the background music could be included with every book purchased  as well!

0005374_300For the more advanced artist who appreciates the beauty of  intricate patterns we offer seven titles which yield countless hours of creative pleasure.  Choose from Art Deco Patterns, Celtic Patterns, Christmas Patterns and 0006965_300more.  One reviewer states that when shared, these books are not only relaxing, but a bonding experience.  At only $5.99, you can purchase an extra one for yourself to provide a calming respite from the hustle and bustle.
