Summary

Freddy, the smallest and cleverest of the pigs on Bean Farm, is “a pig of many parts, a paragon of porkers” (The New York Times). Detective, politician, ambassador to the Martians—whatever the situation requests, Freddy fits the bill. There’s never a dull moment for Freddy and the other animals on Bean Farm, who are “as fast-mouthed and sharply funny as the Marx Brothers, as aphoristic and gimlet-eyed as astute as Noel Coward, and yet always affectionate and forgiving” (The Globe and Mail). Freddy the Pig, the “Renaissance Pig” (The New York Times) of Bean Farm, is back to thrill his fans of all ages in these all-American children’s classics.The Story of Freginald is another classic from Walter R. Brooks. This exciting tale is of a bear named Freginald who joins the famous Boomschmidt Circus and becomes known as the bear that recites poetry. Together with his new friend, Leo the Lion, Freginald sets off to find other unusual animal acts for the circus. The two friends are taken prisoner by a group of renegade farm animals and the entire circus must come to their rescue. A thrilling battle, a rival circus, and a strange mystery that can only be solved by Freddy the Detective all make for a rollicking tale for Freddy and Brooks fans everywhere.

    “This book could literally change a generation, change the trajectory of our culture, change a whole world  of broken toward hope.” - Ann Voskamp, New York Times bestselling author of The Broken WayGod  could have made us all exactly the same, but He didn’t. And our differences are good!As His children,  those called by God to belong to His family, we can actually use our differences to help each other. Here’s some  more great news: There are no rules about how we look or sound to be in His family. We have a delightfully different  family on purpose.Every person is made by God, in His image, and therefore is equal in value and worth.Kids,  somehow, already know this to be true.This short, colorful book (written with grade-schoolers in mind) will  share the truth of God’s Word with them. The truth about how we were made with differences, how we sinned, how God  rescued us, and how—if we understand that God’s diverse creation will be together in Heaven—it should  motivate us to love one another on earth!

    In this award-winning memoir translated from Italian to English, a Jewish girl grows up during a difficult time of racial discrimination and war, and discovers light in unexpected places. This classic, powerful story from Lia Levi is adapted for young readers, with a powerful author’s note to readers.  
    1938, Italy. Six-year-old Lia loves to build sandcastles at the beach and her biggest problem is her shyness and quiet, birdlike voice—until prime minister Mussolini joins forces with Hitler in World War II, and everything changes. 
    Now there are laws saying Jewish children can’t go to school, Jews can’t work, or go on vacation. It’s difficult for Lia to understand why this is happening to her family. When her father loses his job, they must give up their home and move from city to city. 
    As war comes closer, it becomes too dangerous to stay together, and Lia and her sisters are sent to hide at a convent. Will she ever be “just a girl” again? 
    The memoir is full of poignant moments of friendship and loss, dreaded tests at school, told in Lia's captivating voice, as she grows into a young teen. Just a Girl is an important addition to the WWII Jewish canon. 
    Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.
