Princess Lillian and Grandpa’s Goodbye is a heartwarming story to help children cope with loss.
Princess Lillian visits Grandpa in the hospital, where she learns he is going to his forever-kingdom home. It makes Daddy and Lillian sad, but her grandpa seems happy. That’s when he tells her about his best friend, the Great King Above the Nations, how the Great Spirit helps us understand, and how wonderful our forever-kingdom home is.
Princess Lillian and Grandpa’s Goodbye is a beautifully illustrated story sharing the joy of everlasting life with a Navajo influence. Lillian is dressed as a princess and an Angel comforts her as she goes to say her goodbyes.
One of the lovely things about this story is that it helps us realize how similar the stories of God are throughout different cultures and how important the gift of everlasting life remains.

A sweet story from beginning to end is what you’ll find in Little Mole’s Christmas Gift by Glenys Nellist.
Little Mole is thrilled when he finds the perfect mushroom for Mama’s Christmas gift. As he is dragging it home, he comes upon some woodland friends in need, and proves kindness is one of the best gifts of the season.
This is one of those Christmas stories you and the kids will never tire of reading. A little one so excited about giving his mother the best gift he can find, suddenly has to make decisions about how he can best help his friends.
Sally Garland’s artwork on Little Mole’s Christmas Gift is adorable and so realistic you can almost feel the wind blowing the snow around. These two women collaborate so well together. I can’t wait for more Little Mole stories.
A charming story of the season awaits you and your little ones. Highly recommended.

A fun story that will delight young readers is what you’ll find in Don’t Cook, Mom by Jackie Myers.
When twins Ellie and Nellie smell burnt food again, they know Mom is cooking. They try all kinds of tricks to keep her from cooking, but she always seems to outwit them. So, they come up with one more plan they think will work.
I couldn’t stop laughing as I read this silly story about two girls trying to find a way to keep their mom out of the kitchen. With plenty of antics Don’t Cook, Mom will have everyone giggling. Jack Foster provided the artwork for this story. I liked how the pages without full artwork had artistic elements in the corners of the pages. It made for a little something special as the reader turned the pages.
Whether kids love their mom’s cooking or would rather she just ordered out, Don’t Cook, Mom will be enjoyed by all.
