Poodle Knows Poetry: (Student Book + Instructor Manual)
Written by Michael Clay Thomposon; Illustrated by Christopher Tice

Poodle Knows Poetry is the third book in the Poodle series. Children who befriended Poodle the chicken and his friends What? and Sidney in the first two books will be delighted to discover them again as Poodle explains the fundamentals of poetic devices to his surprised (and ornery!) author.

Poodle begins the story alone after having left the Blue Mountain. Eventually the author is talked into writing his best friend What? the beagle into the book, and ultimately they are joined by Sidney, the world’s fastest snail, but not before a few new characters join the cast and Poodle teaches us some of the most important techniques used in writing poetry. The brilliance of the book, however, is that Michael has written these poetic devices into nearly every line so that prose and poetry become almost indistinguishable.

Now What Do I Do?: A Guide to Help Teenagers with Their Parents’ Separation or Divorce
Written by Lynn Cassella-Kapusinski; Edited by Gregory F. Augustine Pierce

If your parents are separated or divorced, then you’re already an expert in the feelings and emotions that can develop from such a disaster.

Author Lynn Cassella-Kapusinski endured her own parents’ divorce when she was eleven, and she has written Now What Do I Do? to share her own experiences to make your journey easier.

Now What Do I Do? is written as a workbook to help you vent some of your anger, fear and frustration over your parents’ breakup. Some of the activities are fun while others are more serious; some are designed to be done alone, others can be done with friends. The point of this book is to help you realize that you are not alone as you go through this tough time.

Award-Winning Children's book — It's OK Little Rain Cloud to Cry

It’s OK Little Rain Cloud to Cry
Written and illustrated by Charlie Shull

Children’s picture book about mental health and learning healthy coping skills. Around the whole world, we as humans are hurting right now. Depression, anxiety, fear, and behavioral addictions are all on the rise, and understandably so. Sadly, many of us never saw healthy coping skills modeled by our parents or peers. But how can we, as imperfect people, be good role models? How can we even start such big conversations with our little ones? It all starts with a simple question: how are you feeling today?

Together, the story and song of “It’s OK Little Rain Cloud to Cry” help teach kids (and adults too) how to share and cope with their feelings in healthy ways. At first, your kids will see that the Little Rain Cloud is sad, tries to avoid its feelings, and then runs away. But after the Mountain sings the “It’s OK Little Rain Cloud to Cry” song, the Little Rain Cloud shares its feelings and cries through the whole valley, bringing new life and happiness after the rain.

Harry Goes To Heaven
Written and illustrated by Jane Sayre Denny

How do you tell a small child that the pet they love will soon die? Their little hearts break so easily, and they love their pets so much. How will they take it? Will they understand at all? Maybe this will help.

Harry Goes To Heaven is the story of a pet cat who becomes ill, prompting The Talk between a mother and child about what happens when “people and animals get so old or so sick that we can’t make them better.”

Empathetic and gorgeously illustrated, Harry Goes To Heaven is spiritual without referencing any specific religion or creed. The author takes care to write for any audience, regardless of belief, so that any child (or adult!) losing a treasured pet may be comforted by Harry Goes To Heaven.
