New York Times Bestseller
My daughters loved the beautiful simplicity of this book. A sweet story about using talents and gifts to benefit others and discovering how that's where the true magic lies. My seven-year-old says, "It's really fun. I like how she makes sweaters for things that don't need sweaters, haha!" Emily, mom to 3 daughters (ages 7, 5 and 2.5) Temecula, CA
A Sick Day For Amos McGee
Phillip and Erin Stead
Friends come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. In Amos McGee's case, all sorts of species, too! Every day he spends a little bit of time with each of his friends at the zoo, running races with the tortoise, keeping the shy penguin company, and even reading bedtime stories to the owl. But when Amos is too sick to make it to the zoo, his animal friends decide it's time they returned the favor.

NY Times Best Illustrated Children's Books of 2010
A sweet story of friendship and kindness that is filled with beautiful illustrations. It is a fun way to talk to children about the importance of being a good friend and helping others in need. My kids all loved it and wanted to hear it again. The overall message, that kindnesses don’t go unnoticed, led to a talk about how the animals did for Amos what he usually did for them and how it must have made him feel good to be cared for. -Stephanie, Pre-K teacher and mom of 2 girls, Virginia Beach, VA

This book is brilliant. It shares all the struggles we have with our ideas. It shares the pain and hurt of rejection as well as the joy and happiness of bringing an idea to life. Honestly, it’s written for children but the people reading this book to their children can also grab a hold of the beautiful message of nurturing their ideas again. This is now one of my top favorite children’s books. It’s a lovely message that one idea can change the world. Every child should own this book. -Emily S. mother of four (ages 5, 3-year-old twins, and 1.5), California, MD
