the steps that the U.S. took in changing.



This is a great book to talk about multicultural differences in a fun and
imaginative way. It is written in rhyme with every line rhyming with "peas."
There is an author's not about lucky foods for other countries and
traditions.

This is a good book for talking about how everyone is different, but we are
all important. I used this one for Children's Moment at church 4/20/08 and
at school for all grades the last week of April.
This Eng/Sp book has a story about a child going to Texas. At the bottom
of the story on each page is an explanation of different aspects of Texas
such as the cities and what to do there.
This book was written by Dr. Mona Kerby, my professor for my children's lit
class for my bachelor's degree from TWU. She was a great teacher. She
signed the book at TLA in 2008.

Great book to teach about the Underground Railroad.


Great book to teach the importance of words and how they can be used to
express emotions. Should point out that words should not be lightly
spoken because they can't be taken back. "Hurtful words spoken can't be
unsaid, be careful with words and choose kind ones instead."

This book is the Newberry Award winner for 2008. It is an interesting mix
of one-person plays and would be good in a study of the Middle Ages.


This is a great ego builder. It shows that even the smallest and most
awkward child can do great things. I used it for a Children's Moment at
church on 6-15-08.


I used this book for the Children's Moment on Aug. 3, 2008. My point was
that we can count on each other when things aren't going right. And then
we counted each other and counted the congregation.

breaking down the rough fascade that people build up and the power of a
child's hug.

story to the Prodigal Son and pointed out how happy the father was when
the son returned and how happy Michelle was when Moka returned.

I used this book for Children's Moment 6/29/08. I used the verse in Jer.
29:11 about the plans God has for each of us and pointed out that we don't
always know what is going to happen, but if we trust God and our parents,
things will turn out, "Great!"
