Summary

Wanting to be accepted by peers is a natural part of children’s social development. Yet kids can be overly influenced by what “friends” think of them or urge them to do. Through simple language and engaging illustrations, this book explains the concept of peer pressure. It encourages a solid sense of self-identity—or “elf-identity”—and teaches kids how to say “No.”
Available since: 10/21/2014.
Print length: 32 pages.

    Award-winning comics creator and author of the bestselling Invisible Emmie Terri Libenson returns with a companion that captures the drama, angst, and humor of middle-school life. 
    Middle school is all about labels. 
    Izzy is the dreamer. There’s nothing Izzy loves more than acting in skits and making up funny stories. The downside? She can never quite focus enough to get her schoolwork done.  
    Bri is the brain. But she wants people to see there’s more to her than just a report card full of As. At the same time, she wishes her mom would accept her the way she is and stop bugging her to “break out of her shell” and join drama club. 
    The girls’ lives converge in unexpected ways on the day of a school talent show, which turns out to be even more dramatic than either Bri or Izzy could have imagined.

    Marvin lives with his family under the kitchen sink in the Pompadays' apartment. He is very much a beetle. James Pompaday lives with his family in New York City. He is very much an eleven-year-old boy.After James gets a pen-and-ink set for his birthday, Marvin surprises him by creating an elaborate miniature drawing. James gets all the credit for the picture and before these unlikely friends know it they are caught up in a staged art heist at the Metropolitan Museum of Art that could help recover a famous drawing by Albrecht Dürer. But James can't go through with the plan without Marvin's help. And that's where things get really complicated (and interesting!). This fast-paced mystery will have young readers on the edge of their seats as they root for boy and beetle. In Shakespeare's Secret Elise Broach showed her keen ability to weave storytelling with history and suspense, and Masterpiece is yet another example of her talent. This time around it's an irresistible miniature world, fascinating art history, all wrapped up in a special friendship— something for everyone to enjoy.

    Knitty Bears are different from Panda Bears and Spectacled Bears and Grizzly Bears and Polar Bears - 
    They are Bears made from wool and as deeply connected to all the Bears of all the Worlds, as you and I. 
    This spoken lullaby for Bedtimes and Sniffletimes and times when you want to feel closer, to yourself and to the Land. 
    A pattern for you to create your very own Knitty Bear - 
    Within this pattern for you to connect, with your very own Inner Bear. 
    Knitty Bear is a gorgeous, magical story about a knitted bear, called Knitty. It has plenty of illustrations and its themes are centered on belonging and connecting to yourself, the natural world and to each other. With a knitting pattern included, the creative process of knitting Knitty Bear mindfully aligns you more deeply to your own dreams and wishes, as you knit Knitty for the people you love or those times when you yourself, really need to hug a little, squishy bear. 
    The knitting pattern is ideal for beginners, supervised children or for the more experienced knitter. The story was originally aimed at 4 - 7 year-olds and we are discovering that adults who are aware of their Inner Child are resonating very much, with the gentle comfort of Knitty.
