    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.

      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.

        The Lie
    A great book that takes the lie off of a child and makes it tangible and controllable .
    `Marley

    "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.

    -Brianna V.

    Great Book, and easy read for my 3 kids.
    The author writes in a way that children can understand!
