A Book Encouraging Self Esteem for Readers Young and Old

A book inspiring lessons about self love, Veggie Bunnie learns something that all readers need to know…. Love yourself, no matter what others may say! Filled with colorful illustrations, this book follows Veggie’s relationship with her friends Carb Monkey and his Uncle Bear. Throughout the book, ‘Carb’ wants to get even with the bully that is bothering Veggie, whereas ‘Uncle Bear’ wants her to take a different approach. This book encourages readers to be the best person they can be, regardless of how people may act around them.

The author, Mrs. Williams states, “Instilling self confidence and promoting humility are hard characteristics to balance. I think this will be a great conversation starter about not letting the bad words of a few, destroy the positive image you want to have of yourself.”

About the Author

Thomasina is a wife and mother of seven beautiful children. She loves giving insight into the different challenges in life! And as seen throughout the book making Thomasina’s Cookie Pizzas. Thomasina has had to struggle with her fair share of bullies in one form or another. This has brought her to a place where she can encourage her own children as well as others to hang in there, life gets better and makes you stronger. I never want to see a child hurt themselves because they feel as though this is all it is to life.

Synopsis:

This book is to encourage those who have wanted to “fit in” but are disappointed because they’re not. A mom and daughter talk providing wisdom and hopefully a different outlook to the troubles of this little one’s life.

When we are teased or picked on, it’s helpful to know that even that has a purpose! That purpose is to make you stronger or maybe, mindful not to be like those who hurt you.

A Los Angeles native, Queenbe Monyei shuffled between England and the U.S. as a child. After graduating UCLA she taught English for a year in Turkey then earned her graduate degree in Education in England. She enjoys writing fantasy novels with a hint of romance.

Synopsis:

In the once beautiful Aetheria, a spreading evil stems in the great Land of The North. It is a world that has been ravaged by vengeance and fury. But Nalia knows nothing of this world. She doesn’t even know that she bears one of its most coveted and sacred gifts, a gift that has killed many and forced others into hiding. But when an unusual visitor escapes from the other world to find her, he claims that her gift is vital in order to save his world. Her task won’t be easy: find the great potion maker whose memory has been stolen, if he’s even still alive. There, Nalia meets the strong yet gentle Lyris who can heal anything with his touch. Soon she discovers that his powers run deep as he slowly begins to mend the pieces of her heart, shattered by her own tragic family and a haunting secret; a secret stemming before she was even born.

Excerpt:

Hello everyone. My name is Talee. It’s spelled T-A-L-E-E and it is pronounced (TAH-Lee).

I just came in from outside. The sun is out and the air feels warm. Can you feel it?

Today, I want to tell you a story I wrote about one of my GREAT adventures.

It’s a real story. Really!

It happened a couple of weeks ago.

Oh, but first I should tell you about me.

The first thing you should know is that I’m eight.

Yep! Eight and I love to read and write—especially about great adventures. My favorites are treasure hunts.

My favorite colors are purple and yellow and I wear them every day. Right now I’m wearing my purple jumpsuit, yellow socks and purple boots with yellow on them. I love my boots.

My favorite food is wild puffy muffins–the yellow ones with the pink tops as big as my hand.

The puffier, the pinker, the bigger, the better is what I always say.

My mom makes them for me every weekend and they’re the best.

Mm-mmm!

This Thing Called the Future

This Thing Called the Future
by J.L. Powers
(Cinco Puntos Press)

In a South African shantytown, 14-year-old Khosi struggles with poverty, disease and oh, there’s a boy at school she has a huge crush on. This Thing Called the Future, the latest from Fulbright scholar J.L. Powers, pulls you right into Khosi’s confusing, magical world, where ancient tradition collides with modern problems. Where the teenage anticipation of a first kiss or going away to college is marred by the deadly threat of AIDS. Powers holds master’s degrees in African History from State University of New York-Albany and Stanford University, won a Fulbright-Hayes to study Zulu in South Africa, and served as a visiting scholar in Stanford’s African Studies Department in 2008 and 2009. Publisher’s Weekly described This Thing Called the Future, an alternative fantasy, as “compelling,” Kirkus called it “compassionate and moving,” and School Library Journal says it is “powerfully gripping” and “eye-opening.”

Excerpt

Hours passed before Anyia was able to move her body even slightly. Wiping the sweat off her face, she turned over and looked out between the bars. They were moving through the forest on a worn path heading toward a blue dome tent where an elderly lady sat at a table full of fruits, breads and gourds of water. The smell of the bread floated through the air. Anyia’s mouth watered as she closed her eyes, thinking how great it would be if they gave her a piece.

Moments later, the Thor warriors stopped and set the crate down roughly, banging Anyia against the metal bars. She watched as they rushed the table and began drinking and eating.

“Do you have means to pay for my food?” asked the elderly lady. She had the presence of strength; she sat on a wooden stool in her green dress; at first Anyia thought the lady was bald. A grown woman in Nagoran Village would have been forbidden to wear her hair so short.

Kuru and Runo just looked at each other and kept eating. Then Anyia saw a tall muscular man with gray hair walk past the crate.

“Yes,” said Som.

She watched as he pulled out a few coins, dropping them on the table.

He picked up a gourd of water and took a long drink before setting it back down. Then he turned around and, for the first time, Anyia could see his eyes; she shuddered. Som’s eyes were pale gray; when he looked at her, chills ran up her spine, but she couldn’t look away. She scanned his face; he had three red marks above his left brow.
