Award-Winning Children's book — Mia and Nattie

Mia and Nattie: One Great Team
Written by Marlene M. Bell; Illustrated by Grace Sandford; Edited by Amy Betz, Kristine Hall

In a read-aloud picture book for children who love animals, award-winning writer and sheep breeder Marlene M. Bell presents Nattie the lamb’s true story. MIA AND NATTIE is a heartwarming book that teaches readers about problem-solving, teamwork, and love.

On a visit to her grandma’s farm, eight-year-old Mia discovers a newborn, orphaned lamb outside in the cold and takes her to the laundry room, naming her Nattie. As she tries to nurse the lamb back to health, Mia discovers that Nattie is different from the other lambs and struggles to fit in with them like Mia does with other kids her age.

When her grandmother says she will sell Nattie to a neighbor, Mia must come up with a plan to keep her friend around—one that will show the family just how special Nattie truly is.

Loopy Looper

The Loopy Looper is a fidget toy perfect for fidgeters of all ages! The Loopy Looper comes in a collection of 4 different styles (Hoop, Jump, Flow, Edge). The collection is inspired by the Japanese Ensō circle. The Ensō is created in a moment where the artist frees their mind to allow their body to take full control over creation. The circle is used to stimulate the mind and encourage creative thinking. Get your Loopy Looper spinning and your creative energy flowing! As well as being entertaining, Loopy Loopers are great for helping to develop hand eye coordination and a sense of rhythm which makes it perfect for all ages. They require a quick flick of the wrist to get spinning and some, like Jump and Edge, require a good rhythm to keep the marble going. Just like in sport, when you set yourself the goal of getting your marble to jump through the gap or land in the hoop, your successes release dopamine and these little victories are incredibly satisfying.
