Remember the days when kids used to play outside … no iPads, no Play Station and the only Angry Birds were actual birds? This book captures all of those moments. The kids are inquisitive and stumble onto an adventure that has you turning the pages.

I love this book. It is a great book for kids and especially if they have been bullied and this book tells you how to deal with bullies. It is also a great book for kids especially if they love dogs.

BULLYING – COPING WITH PEER ABUSE

EMILY BREAKS FREE will help address the problem of bullying in a non-threatening context and suggest techniques for responding to a bully.

Emily is a nice, playful little dog. So why would she join forces with a big
bully like Spike? Even Emily is confused about the answer to that question. It’s true that Spike makes Emily laugh, in spite of herself, and he is fun-in a way. Emily is flattered when Spike invites her to tag along with him.

But when Spike begins teasing a fluffy outsider named Cotton, Emily is sorry to see the hurt look on the little dog’s face. And the dog biscuit Spike takes from Cotton does not taste as good as Emily had thought it would. Emily really regrets being lumped together with Spike as among “the meanest ol’ dogs” Cotton has ever encountered.

Just when Emily is wondering how to make things right, a bewhiskered terrier named Emerson saunters onto the scene. A dog of principle, Emerson shows Emily that it is possible to break free of Spike.

Emily’s story unfolds along the Freedom TrailTM, Boston’s famous walking tour of historic sites from the Revolutionary era-the Old South Meeting House, Faneuil Hall, the Paul Revere House, the Old North Church, and more. These scenes of the American struggle for independence from Britain are a fitting backdrop for Emily’s struggle to free herself from Spike and his tyrannical ways!

Author Linda Talley’s compelling, graceful and carefully researched story about resisting bullying and finding freedom is irresistible reading for young and old alike. Illustrator Andra Chase’s captivating watercolor depictions of the colorful cast of characters, as well as her also carefully researched renderings of historic American buildings and other sights on the Freedom Trail will help bring this important story to life for all readers.

A SURPRISE and added bonus is the “Enrichment Information” whch includes lots of facts about the American Revolution, Boston, and the Freedom Trail, as well as interesting notes about Faneuil Hall, the Old North Church, Paul Revere House, Old South Meeting House, Boston Common and more. This is fascinating detail that did not make it into the story itself, but is very rich in colorful descriptions of Colonial Boston.

A second big plus is the “Letter to Parents and Educators” which includes many relevant questions and comments to facilitate conversation with the young reader about the message of the story…how to cope with bullying. So even though on the surface, this is just an engaging story for children, it is also truly helpful in a real way.

There are specific methods to avoid and cope with bullying embedded in the story.

Pleasantly surprised by this free find. Expected lame illustrations like many other free books, but these pictures are vivid and fun. It’s a good length and my girls enjoy shouting out the answers before the animals identity is revealed. Fun.

The Time Traveler's Apprentice

The Time Traveler’s Apprentice

Kelly Grant

Price: $1.99

I read this book before sending it to my grandson and was happy to do so. Not only would it give him a fun book to read, it also would be educational at the same time. I was so happy to learn that he was thoroughly enjoying it–and this from a boy who did not care to read all that much. I would look forward to the author’s second book–and, of course, I would read it before sending it on.

Booklover

Simon Grant has an unlikely friend in Professor Moira Ananke, whom he met while visiting the museum where she works. One day, while looking through dusty bookshelves he comes upon a series of black, leather journals. He quickly becomes engrossed in reading her accounts of archaeological excavations: digging at Ramses’ tomb in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings in 1995, excavating ancient Indian cities at Harappa in 1986. His attention is drawn to a dozen more journals stretching along the bookcase: Field Notes from the Discovery of Tutankhamen’s Tomb, 1922, Finding Troy, 1871, Work with Johannes Burkhardt, 1812. Simon glances toward his mentor who silently watches him take down several books and scan their pages. They are what they appear to be–her personal notes from excavations stretching back nearly 200 years.
So begins Simon’s introduction to time travel. Professor Ananke is a Master Time Traveler. She agrees to accept Simon as her apprentice, to teach him the secrets of time travel. After a few brief practice trips, Simon feels he is beginning to learn the tricks of this dangerous business. But one day, while photographing a mysterious medieval manuscript, he is grabbed and thrown through time under no control of his own. Simon lands, shaken and confused, in a medieval wood in Yorkshire, England.
He is discovered by a young lady, Bryn Berengar, who involves him in a dangerous and suspenseful mystery tied to the murder of Thomas Becket. Their search for the manuscript that provides clues to the mystery exposes them to many dangers, including being poisoned by monk’s hood, locked in a tower room with a corpse, and fighting a desperate knight with a secret to hide. They travel to Carlisle Castle to thwart a plot to overthrow King Henry II and Simon finds the fencing lessons he took at the local youth bureau take on great importance as he fights for his life. Perhaps most dangerous however, is the relationship he is developing with Bryn.
