THE ABC’S OF CARROTS AND PEAS By Jacque Hall TH E BALLET SLIPP E RS B y Mary Coo per Harkin When Emma, a young ballet student, loses her pink ballet slippers, she is worried about having to wear black ones that “only boys wear.” When her ballet teacher, Miss Mary, learns that Emma is upset, she finds this the perfect opportunity to teach her students a valuable lesson—one not about ballet, but about life. Emma and her fellow ballet students discover the meaning of what Miss Mary has told them all along—“A ballet dancer is first and foremost one in their heart!” In “The Ballet Slippers,” the compassionate, caring Miss Mary shares a lovely, warm and uplifting story that children and parents alike will love to read… again and again! All kids love to go shopping with mom or dad, so what better way to learn our ABCs than by shopping for carrots and peas! With goodies waiting along every aisle of our neighborhood grocery store, along with fun rhyming words by author Jacque Hall, and colorful, happy illustrations by Jennifer Oertel, kids will want to come back again and again to "The ABCs of Carrots and Peas" to discover shopping carts full of fun! BY ANY OT HER N AME By E dwin Coh en ALIVE & CHILLIN’ B y Micha el S. Co pelan d Imagine the thrill, excitement, and sheer joy of discovering that one of the most famous and romantic characters in all literature did not die four centuries ago, but survived, traveled, and wrote some quite famous plays and poetry. In By Any Other Name, by Edwin Cohen, you'll read about Romeo Montague's dramatic, romantic, and literary adventures in Venice, Rome, Sorrento, Spain and, eventually, England. In this, his second book, ALIVE & Chillin': More Sideways Views and Do You Know Whos, ALIVE Magazine humor columnist Michael S. Copeland brings us not only not only his unique, side-splitting perspective on life, but also a collection of “serious” pieces about his encounters with some extraordinary people—all of whom have done, or are still doing, extraordinary things. Like his first book, ALIVE & Kickin’, this one will have you laughing early on…only this time, you’ll add a liberal dose of “wow,” “amazing,” and “incredible” to your critique.
