Be Where Your Feet Are!
From the bestselling author of Bubble Gum Brain and My Mouth is a Volcano!, comes a hilarious story about learning to be present wherever we are... and what can happen when we're not.

These are my feet and this is me.
Sometimes I'm not where I'm supposed to be.

My brain gets crowded. There's so much going on.
I do three things at once, and get two of them wrong!

"Be where your feet are," I hear people say.
"Do one thing at a time. Its a much better way."

Each day, there are so many things to think about. Getting ready for school, turning in homework, taking a math test, band solo tryouts, soccer practice...and it is a long way from your head to your feet.

Be Where Your Feet Are! reinforces the concepts of mindfulness and being present in a fun way children will remember, and shows what can happen when we learn to appreciate the world - and people - around us.

Rumor Has It (Building Relationships)
Whether we've been the subject of a rumor or the one spreading a rumor about someone else, most of us have been involved with rumors somehow. But how many people really stop to think about the damaging effects?

Fortunately, award-winning author Julia Cook does, and cleverly brings this serious subject to light in an entertaining and funny, but cautionary, tale about the importance of NOT starting or spreading rumors.

Told through the eyes of the rumor marble, the story describes how a simple misunderstanding starts a chain reaction that can't be undone.

K-6 students will laugh as they read this story and are reminded that it's much easier to prevent a train or a rolling rumor marble from starting to roll forward than trying to stop one!
