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.

Great new series for girls

EJ12: Girl Hero is an exciting new series for 7-10 year old girls. Normal, fun-loving, everyday girl Emma Jacks moonlights as a special agent working to save the world from evil. She can do anything. So why are things like bullies and going to her best friend’s slumber party so hard? 

Have you seen our Shine-a-Light series yet?

Pair these with a small flashlight and these make fantastic gifts. Each right-hand page has hidden secrets that can be discovered by shining your flashlight behind the page. What fun you’ll have gathering round at bedtime to discover the hidden pictures!

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

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.
