The Elemental Horses Series - Ages 8 and up

"The Elemental Horses" books are a visual and cultural delight especially fascinating for students who struggle with language and rely on visuals to help them understand what words mean. There are actually four books in this series and each is intended to encourage children who do not like to read to become enthralled with the artwork and with messages of strength, courage, and self-reliance.  There is something magical about carousels and something powerful about horses.   Children identify with both as they become riders on each uniquely individual horse.  The books are meant to encourage self-reflection as each reader thinks about the relationships they can have with each horse.  Children from a multitude of cultures will appreciate learning the Chinese symbols of characteristics they admire.  Each book is a fantasy/science fiction children's story & art book that introduces elements of science as well as Chinese language and culture and explores the imaginations of young people.

Lucky, the Left Pawed Puppy - Ages 4-8

Left handed author, Billie Kelpin, wrote this book to empower little left-handers and all children who, at times, have felt "left out".  Lucky is a happy puppy who lives with Mrs. Poppyset under the "H" of the Hollywood sign in Los Angles, California.  Sometimes, however, living in a right-pawed world can be confusing for a left-pawed puppy. When William T. Stagent, the Hollywood agent, whisks Lucky and his brothers off to Hollywood to perform in the Bow-Wow-Chow-Now commercials, the challenges of being left-pawed become greater.  Hector, the Director, is almost ready to send Lucky home until the little puppy saves the day just because he sees the world from a different perspective than everyone else.  Lucky teaches young readers that often it is our difference that becomes our greatest strengths.  This is a read-to-me story rich in language with images from the talented children's artist, Julie Parker.  Lucky has his own website where children from ages 4-8 can practice memory picture and word matching of each character as well as engage in other learning activities.  Take a visit at   MORE...
