Sharon Turner Mulvihill
Amy Sullivan
Devon Frederickson

Maggie takes on the threats of a grouchy old Cap’n Hatch on Nantucket with the magical help of her Grammy Apple and her little dog, Blissful.

Hi, I’m Maggie and I have to whisper something to you. There are witchy doings on the island of Nantucket where I live. Seriously. Can you believe sandpipers doing cartwheels on the beach and dune grasses doing backends? My dog, Blissful, knows it’s magic—my witchy Grammy Apple’s magic. Uh-oh. Does this mean I’m a witch too? The kids at school will be so mean about it, maybe even pinch their noses when I pass by. Even so, it would be kind of cool—to be a real witch, I mean.

Princess Luna Liver Health

The liver is an important organ which performs over 500 functions, including detoxifying harmful substances, breaking down fat, storing glycogen and metabolizing hormones. When we don’t get enough sleep, which is often the case for new moms, this impacts the liver’s ability to function properly. Princess Luna® Liver Health helps to protect the liver and to ensure proper function.

Princess Luna® Liver Health is enriched with clinically proven heat-treated probiotics that synergistically act with other ingredients, promoting healthy gut flora. Scientific evidence highlights that microbiota has an important role in the evolution of liver disorders, and that modulation of the microbiota is effective in the management of liver disorders.

Since our liver plays a key role in the healthy functioning of many other organs, a healthy liver promotes whole body wellness.

Award-Winning Children's book — Bee, Honey Bunny and Me

Bee, Honey Bunny and Me: Yucky, Yummy Carrots
Written by Lavelle Carlson; Illustrated by John D. Moulton

Is it just a dream? Does Baby Bunny  love or hate carrots? Are they Yucky or are they Yummy Carrots? Baby Bunny hates them then she loves them. What makes Baby Bunny change her mind when she hates carrots? How can the bees help to convince Leni ? This delightfully illustrated book will keep children enthralled as they dream along with Leni about the bunnies and the bees to see how Baby Bunny changes her mind about carrots. Will this also help Baby Leni love carrots as she dreams about Baby Bunny and the carrots and bees? Bee, Honey Bunny, and Me was written by Lavelle Carlson, a retired speech/language pathologist. Her joy in teaching was to teach early literacy and speech and language skills using storybooks. Upon retirement she has been inspired by her grandchildren to write books about animals and the environment. This story holds a special place in her heart as her granddaughter (2 years at the time of writing the book) was our “bunny whisperer” as she loved to play with the bunnies that came to her yard to be fed. The author also feels that young children can learn early in life the importance of animals and the environment.
