SELF-RELIANCE…WORKING TO TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES

Meet Tessa, a beautiful California red fox, and share a modern fable in praise of industry.

While her brothers and sisters learn to stalk, chase, and pounce-Tessa lies half asleep under a blackberry bush, waiting for lunch to be served.

Then one day, big brother Rex decides it is time Tessa started hunting for herself. “You can’t be a lazy fox forever,” he tells her.

Tessa doesn’t like to be told what to do. So with her bright tail dragging in the dust, she strikes off to live on her own. Tessa soon discovers, however, that the life of a scavenger is not easy. And when she has to spend a scary night in a smelly garbage dumpster, she decides she is better off doing what foxes do naturally-hunting for dinner.

Tessa’s tale takes place in the Ojai Valley of southern California’s coastal mountains. From the rough chaparral of the Topa Topa bluffs to the wildflower fields and orange groves of the valley below, illustrator Itoko Maeno has recreated the beauty of one of California’s most scenic locations.

And in addition to her perfect depictions of the elusive red fox, she has rendered a charming supporting cast of wildlife-playful field mice, a bossy California quail, a gruff mule deer, an unfriendly coyote, and a bandit raccoon with her laughing pups.

Author Alyssa Chase’s story has the straightforward charm of a fable-a classic statement in praise of industry for today’s child.

The Good Eggs

The Good Eggs

S. Ciara Mitaro

Price: FREE

This book is packed with life-lessons for children (and adults!). While reading it I imagined myself as an Egg in Albumen. I found myself identifying with each of the Egg characters in the book – – even Benedict! As a teacher, I can see how this book can be used as a great tool for character education in the classroom. As a parent, I can also see how this book could spark some terrific conversations at home. I highly recommend it!

Who are Seggourney, Reggie, Megg and Greggory? They are The Good Eggs! These four friends live and go to school in the small town of Albumen. They display virtues within their community. What are virtues? Virtues are positive traits that help you and others become Good Eggs. As you read The Good Eggs, you will learn more about understanding, forgiveness, gratitude, generosity, cooperation, love, acceptance, respect, responsibility, honesty, confidence, and manners. Challenges are introduced by two additional eggs, Benedict and Peggy. The virtues of The Good Eggs are put into practice as they try to help and guide Benedict and Peggy through their difficulties. Remember – a cracked Egg should be handled with care. With some kindness and concern, a difference can be made in someone’s life!
