The Rabbit Listened
Take a child’s ordinary catastrophe…
add a murder of crows…
an inquisitive chicken…
and a bunch of other animals…
(You’ll recognize them grownups in disguise.)
You’ll have a story about disappointment
and what it really takes to mend a heart.

For the quiet and shy







The Blue Songbird
Vern Kousky
The quiet child looks around and sees but says little. 
Perhaps it’s because everyone else’s talents are louder, more easily noticed.
This book is for anyone who has felt shy..




A Poem that Heals a Fish
by Jean-Pierre Simeon
Il. by Oliver Tallec




Arthur’s goldfish looks like he’s going to die of boredom (according to Arthur, that is).
“Give him a poem,” says Mom.
Arthur goes off in search of one. A baker says it’s hot like fresh bread, his canary says it’s when words beat their wings. It’s odd, a poem means something different to everyone. 

My favorite comes from the goldfish. His poem is…silence.
On a Magical Do- Nothing Day
Beatrice Alemagna





Finally a story about the dreaded iPhone! 
But don’t worry, it gets what it deserves. 
The author knows an iPhone might hide what is really interesting.

After it meets its untimely end that our heroine discovers the magic of a rainy backyard.
