Adventures in Dreamland - The Wild Ride - By Lisa Pollock
Lisa Pollock

Bedtime used to be boring and routine for White Kitty and her best friend. Then one night, as they drifted off to sleep, a wild ride began. They flew through the air—up, up and away as superheros. They blasted off to Mars as astronauts. They took off as airplane pilots and train engineers. They won speed boat races and rode the highest roller coasters.

The fun and adventures were waiting for them each night as they put on their PJs and climbed into bed. Join White Kitty and her best friend as they drift off to Adventures in Dreamland. Bedtime will never be the same again.

Christmas on a Spoon
Written by: Jennifer Whipple, Illustrated by: John Joriff

A delightful tale of a family, trying to hide their disappointment as they go through the rituals of Christmas day. Grandfather arrives and brightens the day. As he tells a story of a discarded silver spoon found in a trash heap, given as a gift. They are reminded that the reason for the season is Jesus, that Christmas is not about the gifts or even the grand feast but that Christmas means, what Christmas means, despite our silver spoons.

About the Author
Jennifer Whipple had always dreamed of being a wife, a mother and an author—now she is all three. Jennifer and her husband Rick live in a quaint bungalow off a dirt road near the village of Dexter, Michigan. When Jennifer isn’t writing, she can often be found playing outside with her two little girls or tending her beautiful flower garden. Jennifer has been blessed with a wonderful family, friends, neighbors and a Heavenly Father who loves her very much. While she still dreams of doing many things, she has come to realize that with God, all things are possible…

Excerpt:
There were presents galore but no gun ship or sled;
and my list did not ask for new sheets for my bed.

I looked at Mom in her pink terry robe
as Santa Claus earrings hung from her lobes.

“Did you get what you wanted?” she asked. “Do you like your new toys?
Are you impressed by the rocket that makes realistic noise?”

I knew my response and without a considerate thought I asked her, “Are these the only presents Santa Claus brought?”

Grammie in A Story of Friendship: PB & J Without the J

Little Shelby has been having a hard time at school making friends, and when she comes home one day and doesn’t even want her favorite sandwich, PB & J without the J, her Grammie knows something is wrong. Turning to prayer, God gives Grammie the perfect verse: Proverbs 18:24, “A man [who has] friends must himself be friendly, But there is a friend [who] sticks closer than a brother.” From this wise scripture, Shelby begins to learn not only what it means to be a friend, but also that even when she is lonely, she has a perfect friend in Jesus right by her side.

About the Author
Cheryl “Grammie” Jones spent more than 18 years teaching kindergarten and pre-school children. Her children’s stories come from her many years in the classroom where most were developed to teach and train children much as Jesus taught through parables. The birth of her grandchild was the catalyst for her first book; "Grammie in A Story of Friendship: PB & J without the J". Initially, she wanted to creatively leave a legacy of foundational faith for her grand-daughter and all of her future grand-children; now her modern day parables are on paper for everyone to enjoy.

Humphrey's Shiny New Helmet! Victorious Kingdom Kids Series - Book 1

It is the heart of every Christian pastor, parent, teacher and caregiver to share Salvation, the greatest gift of all with the children they love. But we often struggle with how to share this good news with our little one’s in an age appropriate manner, Humphrey and the Victorious Kids Series can help share this good news with our little one’s in an age appropriate manner.

In Humphrey’s Shiny New Helmet! Book - 1 in the Victorious Kingdom Kids Series, author, Terri Evans, weaves a vivid, action packed adventure of faith and perseverance while sharing God’s love and salvation, along with addressing important character keys, such as making wise choices and accepting responsibility for our actions. The story also conveys the negative consequences of greed, the positive outcome of sharing and evangelism, as well as the benefits of obedience. In a story full of twist and turns Humphrey and his dad, Hopeville’s town watchman, eagerly set out on Humphrey's long awaited treasure hunt. Will Humphrey find his real treasure?

As they reach their destination, a menacing shadow lurking in the distance catches the eye of Humphrey’s eye. His dad immediately sets out after the shadowy figure in fierce pursuit. Humphrey disobeys his father command and runs after him. When they reach the edge of a cliff, Humphrey falls head over heels into the evil, disgusting pit of Greedland! His father’s one and only hope is to have faith and pray that God will deliver Humphrey. While Humphrey’s father is at the edge of the cliff praying fervently, Humphrey is in the horrid pit of Greedland, faced with making crucial choices that will either lead him closer to his shiny new helmet and a way out or further away and deeper into the pit of Greedland.

The Victorious Kingdom Kids Series was inspired by Ephesians 6:10-18 and Terri’s zeal for children to receive Jesus Christ as their Savior and walk in the fullness of their Salvation.
Humphrey’s Shiny New Helmet! addresses questions about salvation concluding with a personal invitation from Humphrey to his new friends to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

Join Davie Divinity Dove as he shares the healing power of God with his friends.

“He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed" (1 Peter 2:24)

“But He was wounded for our transgressions, [He was] bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed"

About the Author - Reneesha Parrish-Nnaji

Is a graduate of the Word of Faith International Christian Bible Training Center. I grew up in a Christian home and was continuously surrounded by the Word of God from a young age and I believe that is why I am, who I am today. I also feel, as Christians we are responsible for sharing the “faith” with the next generation and to assure that they are taught the word of God—the younger the better.

God’s word will change lives when it is taught, read and understood. When I was accepted as a student at the Bible Training Center, I understood why I was there; and that was to learn more about God and to learn how to effectively communicate His word to people at their level. I am passionate about children learning the right things (God’s Word and Way of doing things) so they can grow up to be productive adults with a reverence for God. The Davie Shares The Power Series is God’s word at an age appropriate level for young believers. It was inspired by God to transform and counteract the media that could negatively influence the behavior of our Christian children.

My ultimate prayer is that the first book in this series, Davie Shares the Healing Power of God, helps to take the focus off the evil, sickness, disease and lack in the world and give children hope and help build their faith to believe what God says in His Word, about who they are, and what the Word promises us.

Big Shot: From Bully to Victim by Karen Dean
Code: TBS
Price: $14.95
Quantity in Basket: none
What happens when the bully becomes the victim!

Bossing everyone else around became a bad habit for the main character in Big Shot. Other students were afraid of him because of his mean actions, words, and stares. He didn’t care who he hurt or made cry, both girls and boys. He wanted to be in control as much as possible.

It was going exactly as he wanted until one day, it all changed. He moved away and had to go to a new school. Then he worried about what he was going to have to go through. How would he be treated by the bullies at that school? After confessing his bullying to his Dad and counselor, he was told to apologize to the classmates at his old school. Even though it was hard, the apology helped the other students and helped him to understand the hurtful effect he had on others.

The discussion questions are a useful tool to help students verbalize how it feels to be annoyed or tormented by a bully’s actions and words. Seeing how quickly a bully can become a victim will help students be more aware of their ways.

Little Bee And the Great Honey Contest by Caroline Stoerker
Code: LBGHC
Price: $12.95
Quantity in Basket: none

Little Bee is the youngest and smallest bee in her hive (her brother even had the nerve to call her a “runt”). She lives with her family in the beehive colony near Cloverleaf Field. Little Bee wants to bee the best at something. Her brother boasts that he is stronger and her sister constantly brags about beeing faster, not to mention older, smarter and prettier. Little Bee wonders how she can prove that just because she may be the “runt” of the family, she can still bee the best at something.

While Little Bee is out collecting pollen with her brother and sister, her best friend, Izzy, flies up and tells her about the Great Honey Contest. Little Bee announces that she is going to enter the contest.

Join Little Bee, Izzy and her family as they discover that beeing the best doesn’t always mean beeing the biggest, strongest, fastest, prettiest or even the smartest.
