Presenting hundreds of ideas, this all-in-one book is divided into six sections: “Art” spotlights titles that are natural hooks for art or craft activities alongside ideas on how to create art just like the character in the story, while an appendix includes art patterns that can be used as coloring sheets; “Games” includes searching games, follow-the-leader games, and guessing games to enhance the books in this section; “Movement” features books that kids can jump, stomp, clap, chomp, waddle, parade, wiggle, and stretch with; “Music” chooses books perfect for activities like shaking a maraca, singing, dancing between the pages, and creating new sound effects; “Playacting” lets kids pretend along with the characters in these books, whether it’s washing their face, swimming with fish, or hunting a lion; “Props” encourages storytime leaders to bring out their puppets, flannelboard pieces, and scarves—these books have enough props for everyone in the program to have a part. Each chapter includes as much instruction as possible for a wide range of motions. Pick and choose the amount of movement that is right for your storytime crowd, or do it all!

Mourning Gloria from the Author: Susan Wittig Albert. Susan Wittig Albert, “who consistently turns out some of the best-plotted mysteries on the market,”* delivers the charm and suspense in her latest herbal treat, Mourning Gloria. Now ex-lawyer and current herbalist China Bayles must stop a killer whose evil is burning through Texas… China is relishing the scents, produce, and even the showers of spring. She’s also busy hosting Pecan Springs’ Farmers’ Market. It brings additional customers to her herb shop Thyme and Seasons. And residents find rare ingredients they wouldn’t otherwise find in the supermarket. Everybody wins… But as the town bustles back to life in the warmth of the season, one woman’s life is tragically brought to an end. China happens upon a burning house trailer and hears a woman screaming for help. The evidence leaves no doubt that it’s arson homicide—but who would commit such a ghastly crime? An intern-reporter at the local paper, Jessica Nelson, is assigned to cover the story. Drawn into the case by its similarity to her own tragic loss—Jessica’s family died in a fire—she soon finds herself deeply involved and in danger. And when Jessica disappears, China becomes determined to help find her, before she becomes headlines herself… *Houston Chronicle

Honestly from the Author: Gene Gach. The emotional battle is not an easy road. We all face issues everyday. Emotions can get the best of you or you can learn in time to get the best of them. To focus on the bad side and react can cause a lot of harm to yourself or others. Don't do anything that you will regret later. Stop and think about what your feeling. Learn to turn it around and find the best way. God is there to help you with everything that you go through. He was there for me and helped me to deal with each emotion. As you read this I hope that it will help you to find the right way and make the right choices. Never let go of God's hand through each step.

Sammy Keyes And The Wedding Crasher from the Author: Wendelin Van Draanen. "The most winning junior detective ever in teen lit. (Take that, Nancy Drew!)" —Midwest Children's Book Review Sammy should have known better than to think 8th grade would be easier than 7th. It's only September and already the history teacher is receiving death threats. Naturally, Sammy is the prime suspect. To make matters worse, officer Borsch has asked Sammy to help out at his wedding. If she doesn't find the real prankster fast, Sammy will be wearing prison stripes instead of a poofy pastel bridesmaid dress. This latest Sammy Keyes adventure blends mystery, comedy, and a dusting of fairy tale magic as Sammy takes off her high-tops, puts on some party shoes, and steps into a whole lot of trouble. The Sammy Keyes mysteries are fast-paced, funny, thoroughly modern, and true whodunits. Each mystery is exciting and dramatic, but it's the drama in Sammy's personal life that keeps readers coming back to see what happens next with her love interest Casey, her soap-star mother, and her mysterious father. From the Hardcover edition.

In Search Of Joshua King from the Author: Jason Kalaus. Joshua King spends his nights sitting on different stools in different bars, listening to music that reminds him of the days—and more importantly, the people—he has lost. He only has one person left in his life. Liam, his best friend, has been with him from day one, and he may be the last reason for Joshua to hold onto the bar he’s sitting in front of. He’s stuck in a cycle of always searching the past for answers to his present state and looking for the one thing that will help him stop looking back and help him break free from his cycle of bars and lonely nights. Joshua is the only one who can see himself. No one around is let in to see what he really looks like. In Search of Joshua King examines the cracks that occur in a person when divorce becomes his earliest childhood memory. Songs play throughout as a soundtrack to Joshua’s life and as a navigation tool that reveals how the divorce of his parents affected both him and the relationships that he so desperately clings to. His primary escape is to find a bartender who is willing to fill his glass for him and let him forget about everything he has lost in life—including his two loves.
