This is a cute book that makes light of some of our current political issues in a kid friendly way. Perfect Puppy is running as a Re'pup'lican and Fat Kitty is running as a Demo'cat'. My 4th grade son really liked the book and it has and issues check list to help you to decide who you might want to vote for and a ballot as well. Gave me an opportunity to talk to my child about the political issues mentioned and how they might affect our family.
Would recommend this book.

Through God' Eye
This is the touching story of a young girl struggling with the loss of her big brother. Mom comes along and helps
her to understand why he is gone, and how she can view
this loss through the life cycle of a butterfly. This is a well written, well illustrated book geared towards young
children who have suffered the loss of a loved one.

This book is beautifully written and
illustrated. I'm a Sunday school teacher and children's worship leader at my church. I can't wait to read this to the children there! Although written towards younger children, my 14 and 10 year old daughters also enjoyed looking at this book.
Fat Kitty for President
This book addresses the very sad subject of losing a sibling and provides a positive outlook that they are now with God. A very sad story, but would help a young child to cope.

I liked reading this book to my 7 year old daughter. It is a nice way to add a little sense of humor to the world of politics. For children, we have to find a way for them to connect real life issues/situations (even though they don't have to worry about them just yet) with things that they connect with. Using cats and dogs is a great way to help children understand something such as presidential elections, because just like our presidents and cats and dogs, not everybody likes or believes the same things!
Fat Kitty and Perfect Puppy run for President and you can join in the democratic process too! Learn about the issues, the pros and the cons, Then cast your vote. I've cast mine for "Fat Kitty for President" as a great teaching tool.
Death is a difficult subject to address, especially with young children as their understanding is so limited. It's hard to find the right words when the pain is so intense. This book will help you address the subject and get the conversation started. Beautifully illustrated, this sensible book helps children of all ages to make sense of death.
This is a wonderful book that gently addresses the loss of a family member.
The Living Tree
This is a really sweet story about a big tree and a little tree. You will see how the big tree protects the little tree until a big wind comes and knocks it down. But when the big tree falls over, the little tree grows because it gets the sun and the rain.
Love this sweet story- all 3 of my kids enjoy it!
Cute! Teaching Children about Losing a pet. This was a cute story that helps explain to young children what happens to family pets when they pass on. Almost everyone has lost a pet and having the pictures and seeing what the dogs/cats do when they cross the rainbow bridge can help children process their loss. At one point in the story it explains that dogs and cats that were sick or hurt don't hurt anymore. I thought that was very important to add to the story!! Beautiful illustrations!
Coping with the loss of a pet. This book addresses the sad subject of losing a beloved pet. It provides the positive outlook that the pet is in heaven with God and that you will be reunited with your pet when you go to heaven. This book also provides some learning activities through counting items and naming colors.

Great Book for helping young ones understand why lying is a good thing- love all the books by the author!
A great book that takes the lie off of a child and makes it tangible and controllable .
"The Lie" helps children understand what it can feel like to think about telling a lie and why it might not be the best choice.The pictures are fun, creative and the language is delightful.
This book is a cute way of showing kids that not everyone or everything can work in the same ways.
It was catchy and repetitive so kids can join in while reading, I find myself saying "I do not like this" all the time.
