Wishtree
"Warm and thoughtful, this story is told from the perspective of an ancient oak tree who has seen it all. Bestselling author Katherine Applegate gets readers rooting for the old tree, along with the people and animals who come to depend on it. The shorter length and strong plot are appealing for middle grade readers who are growing into novels with less illustrated narrative and more complex subject matter." - Seira Wilson, Amazon Editor

An Amazon Top 20 Children's Books of 2017

The New York Times-bestselling story of kindness, friendship, and hope.

Trees can't tell jokes, but they can certainly tell stories. . . .
Red is an oak tree who is many rings old. Red is the neighborhood "wishtree"―people write their wishes on pieces of cloth and tie them to Red's branches. Along with a crow named Bongo and other animals who seek refuge in Red's hollows, this wishtree watches over the neighborhood.
You might say Red has seen it all.
Until a new family moves in. Not everyone is welcoming, and Red's experience as a wishtree is more important than ever.
Funny, deep, warm, and nuanced, this is Katherine Applegate at her very best―writing from the heart, and from a completely unexpected point of view.
This book has Common Core connections.

Preschool Scholar Deluxe Edition Workbook, Ages 3-5, tracing letters & numbers, learning shapes & colors, animal names, playful motivation
A pleased parent had this to say about Preschool Scholar Workbook: This is the first workbook that I bought for my 3 year old son. He loved the pages and asked every day to do some work in his book! I've bought the Big workbook for preschool and we just started it. I've also got a 1 year old and she loves to watch us as work in the books!

Help your preschooler get ready for a great start with this Preschool Scholar Workbook. Follow the lovable Lulu on a trip through the Grand Zoo, as an iguana, quetzal, unicorn, and other critter friends make reading and writing ABCs so much fun! Kids will enjoy learning the names of the animals that start with the letters of the alphabet. They will also practice tracing letters and numbers, learning shapes and colors, identifying same and different, plus matching, sequencing, and following directions. Lulu's jokes and fun facts add smiles and learning opportunities. Examples include 'What kind of cat lives in the ocean?' and 'Butterflies have transparent wings and taste with their feet.' Find a lively selection of reading readiness, early math, and beginning science activities in our zoo-tastic Preschool Scholar; the skill focus is listed at the bottom of every page for easy reference. Bold, colorful illustrations help little learners stay focused and motivated, and when they are all done, they can fill out the completion reward certificate and display it with pride! A Parent Guide inside the front cover offers helpful tips for maximizing the learning, and Activities to Share inside the back cover suggest fun, easy, creative activities that get kids stretching their senses and critical thinking skills. They include 'Sun Photographs,' 'Kids in the Kitchen,' 'Musical Buttons,' and more. This workbook is an excellent size for tucking into a tote or backpack and turning road trips and wait times into learning opportunities. Create curiosity and a love of learning.

Kids love color, characters, and 'room' to play. School Zone workbooks deliver all that and so much more. Almost 40 years ago the company responded to parents need for tools to help reinforce in-school learning. Workbooks continue to be just the right combination of play and practice, making them excellent, teacher-created, parent-approved resources. Writing by hand fires up specific parts of a child's brain, improving a child s ability not only to remember what he or she learns, but to think of new ideas. Think of workbooks as analog devices because workbook practice can help kids develop fine motor skills, focus on the task at hand, and learn at their own pace.

Use this Preschool Scholar Workbook to create curiosity and a love of learning and help little ones build skills for school success. Reading readiness develops as preschoolers practice their ABCs and beginning sounds. They also begin to print and write by tracing letters, and they use positional words, rhyming words, and beginning sounds. Preschoolers identify shapes and colors and sharpen visual discrimination and critical thinking by recognizing patterns, establishing cause and effect, and sequencing, sorting, and classifying. The activities also give eye-hand coordination and the ability to follow directions an excellent workout. A solid foundation in basic skills builds confidence, and motivating kids and helping them value learning gives them a big advantage inside and outside of school.

She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World
Chelsea Clinton introduces tiny feminists, mini activists and little kids who are ready to take on the world to thirteen inspirational women who never took no for an answer, and who always, inevitably and without fail, persisted.
 
Throughout American history, there have always been women who have spoken out for what's right, even when they have to fight to be heard. In early 2017, Senator Elizabeth Warren's refusal to be silenced in the Senate inspired a spontaneous celebration of women who persevered in the face of adversity. In this book, Chelsea Clinton celebrates thirteen American women who helped shape our country through their tenacity, sometimes through speaking out, sometimes by staying seated, sometimes by captivating an audience. They all certainly persisted.
 
She Persisted is for everyone who has ever wanted to speak up but has been told to quiet down, for everyone who has ever tried to reach for the stars but was told to sit down, and for everyone who has ever been made to feel unworthy or unimportant or small.
 
With vivid, compelling art by Alexandra Boiger, this book shows readers that no matter what obstacles may be in their paths, they shouldn't give up on their dreams. Persistence is power.
 
This book features: Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller, Clara Lemlich, Nellie Bly, Virginia Apgar, Maria Tallchief, Claudette Colvin, Ruby Bridges, Margaret Chase Smith, Sally Ride, Florence Griffith Joyner, Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Sotomayor—and one special cameo.

Praise for She Persisted:

★ “[A] lovely, moving work of children’s literature [and a] polished introduction to a diverse and accomplished group of women.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Exemplary . . . This well-curated list will show children that women’s voices have made themselves emphatically heard.” —Booklist 

“[She Persisted] will remind little girls that they can achieve their goals if they don’t let obstacles get in the way.” —Family Circle 

“We can’t wait to grab a copy for some of the awesome kids in our lives . . . and maybe some of the grown-ups, too.” —Bustle 

“A message we all need to hear.” —Scary Mommy 

“This will be a great read for kids (especially young girls).” —Romper 

“We cannot wait for the launch of Smart Girl Chelsea Clinton’s new book to help remind kids everywhere that the fearlessness that characterizes the thirteen women in the book is what has emboldened us to constantly strive for progress and justice.” —Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls
