Nobody Can Take My Happy Away

Jessica Arnold

Price: FREE

I read this to my six year old, and she liked it. She has since written and illistrated at least three of her own stories to share with family members!

Charity Arkauskas

A book with a positive message about bullying written for kids (and adults too) by a kid!

Emily is the new girl at school. She learns quickly that her first day at a new school isn’t going to go the way she expected. She gets teased about her appearance among other things. At first, Emily thinks that there is something wrong with her, and wonders if there is something she can fix about herself to get the other kids to stop teasing. She soon learns that the problem isn’t her, it’s them. Together with some new friends that she initially overlooks due to her worries, they bring about change at their school with confidence, communication and teamwork.

This book is written by Jessica Arnold, the author of “I am Good at Lots of Things” and “Hello My Name is Rose and this is My Christmas Story”

“Nobody Can Take My Happy Away” is inspired by her own real experiences. Jessica communicates her feelings with this story about how she got her “happy” back and her confidence.

Delight Directed Learning: Guide Your Homeschooler Toward Passionate Learning

Matt and Lee Binz

Price: 99 cents

I was really encouraged reading about her sons developing passions that were not obvious when they were young. Sure, a few kids show strong talent in preschool or early elementary, but for the rest of us, it’s good to know that passions and talents can pop up as late as high school! Lots of practical advice here too.

“Delight Directed Learning” – Homeschoolers understand that a solid high school education involves more than just the standard high school courses. Yes, it is true that mastering science, math, and literature is important for homeschoolers – and vitally important if college lies ahead. But equally important are those subjects that the student is passionate about, subjects that they will study for hours on end, “just for the fun of it.”

This delight directed learning is the true “secret sauce” of a great homeschool education. It will help your student stand out in a crowd of college applicants. It can launch a career in business, or industry, or the Arts. It can lead to life-changing internships and real world work experience. It can open doors not just to college, but to life!

What are these delight directed topics? How can you recognize them? How can you help your student discover them? How can they be captured and reflected on your student’s educational records? These questions and more are answered in “Delight Directed Learning,” the second book in Lee Binz’s brand new series, Coffee Break Books.

The first book in this series, “Planning High School Courses,” describes the traditional high school courses that every homeschool student who is leaning toward college should cover. This companion volume captures the other components of a solid homeschool education, the extra, sometimes non-traditional, subjects that make your child unique!

Designed especially for parents who don’t want to spend hours reading a 400-page book on homeschooling high school, this series combines Lee’s practical and friendly approach with detailed, but easy-to-digest information, perfect to read over a cup of coffee at your favorite coffee shop!

Never overwhelming, always accessible and manageable, each book in the series will give parents the tools they need to tackle the tasks of homeschooling high school, one warm sip at a time.

Lee Binz, The HomeScholar, understands what it takes to graduate homeschool students who are fully prepared for college and for life. Lee’s practical advice and organized presentations have helped thousands of homeschool parents muster the courage to complete their homeschooling journey. She is both reassuring and empowering, and will give you the knowledge you need to successfully graduate your high school student, and have confidence that they are ready to take on the world.

A firm believer that homeschooling provides the best possible learning environment, and that parents are capable of providing a superior education for their children, Lee’s mission is to encourage and equip parents to homeschool through high school.

Sacagawea: Stolen!

Karla Akins

Price: 99 cents

It is not often that I find books about historical figures that interest me from page one. I have been looking for quite some time for a living book about Sacagawea. I have purchased others only to be disappointed with their text book approach. After reading the first part of this series I am excited to read the other parts. I’m also looking forward to sharing this with my daughter!

“We love this story! Every chapter leaves us hanging and eager to read more. Karla has done a fantastic job with this true tale of Sacagawea! We look forward to more stories by her.” – Laura in WA

Stolen! is part 1 of a 4-part riveting historical narrative of Sacagawea and the events surrounding the Lewis and Clark discovery of the west. By itself, this is a short story, but together, the 4 ebook parts make a full-length book.

An intimate look into the life of Sacagawea, this interactive “living book” provides an unforgettable historical experience for students and adults alike. With emotional and factual honesty, the first person narrative brings into focus the truth about the life of the most beloved woman in American history.
