Summary

Celebrate the inspirational story of Jesus’ Resurrection rewritten especially for young children and families! Young readers will learn about Jesus’ last week of life and about how He died for our sins. The Easter story shows Jesus riding into the city of Jerusalem on a donkey with people shouting, "Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!" Next, Jesus is in the temple and turns over tables because the people were not worshipping God.  Jesus celebrates with His disciples at the last supper and then prays in the Garden. Soon, soldiers arrest Jesus as He is betrayed by Judas. Jesus is taken to Pontius Pilate, who wants to release Jesus, but the people insist that He be crucified.  Jesus dies on a cross and His body is placed in a large tomb.  Even though a huge stone covers the entrance and soldiers guard the tomb, Jesus overcomes death.  When two women, both named Mary, come to the tomb, the stone is rolled away.  They discover that Jesus is alive and go and tell His disciples.  Captivating illustrations of Jesus and simple text make reading along easy! Titles in the Bible Stories Series include: In the Beginning, Noah and the Ark, Two By Two, Rise and Shine, Jonah and the Whale, Daniel and the Lions’ Den, David and Goliath, The Story of Esther, All About Jesus, Miracles of Jesus, Jesus Loves The Little Children, The Lord Is My Shepherd, and The Easter Story.

    A teenage girl’s guide to being a confident, classy lady of substance in a substance-less world. 
     
    In a world where women and girls are constantly under attack from the media with photoshopped, airbrushed images and popstars that tell them all they need to do is party all the time, kiss a lot of boys, be a “mean girl” to gain popularity, max their credit cards to buy designer clothes, etc., The Lost Art of Ladyhood communicates the counterpoint to those of our teen popstars. Happiness does not come from revealing all your skin, going clubbing every weekend where you get so drunk you don’t remember who you kissed, or maxing your credit cards just so you can buy the latest designer jeans. Happiness comes from living a life of character. 
     
    Teaching girls how to be ladylike has little to do with crossing your ankles and sipping tea correctly; it’s about giving them tools and skills they can use to serve others, to be grateful, to think positively, to set powerful goals, to protect themselves from toxic relationships, and to learn to love themselves enough to where they learn to love others. The Lost Art of Ladyhood is a road map for navigate your way to confidence, classy-ness, character, and learning the lost art of being a lady.

    This poem describes a battle with a fearsome beast called “The Jabberwock” and is considered to be one of the greatest nonsense poems written in the English language. The poem is included in Lewis Carroll’s 1871 novel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. In an early scene in that novel, Alice discovers a book that is written backwards. Realizing that she’s in the inverted “looking-glass land,” she holds the book up to a mirror and is able to read the poem “Jabberwocky,” but she finds it to be just as nonsensical and perplexing as the world around her.

    Children aren’t immune to stress. Kids are especially prone to feel fear before stressful events in their lives. Family, school, and team sports’ schedules have been crammed into their daily activities so extensively that many children are robbed of their free recreational “growth” time, and an alarming number of kids are experiencing high levels of stress because of this. All of these realities can lead to our children having the same kinds of fears and concerns we adults have, especially about things they often have no control over. In this invaluable book, author J. S. Jackson helps children explore attitudes and ideas to try and diminish some of the stress they feel in their lives.
