Coming in August – Two Children’s Books from Tony and Lauren Dungy

When Maria’s family moves to a new town, her parents sign her up for the summer soccer team to help her meet new friends. But Maria has never tried soccer before. She would rather be back on her old swim team. Maria is afraid she will be the worst player and no one will like her.

Coach Tony and Coach Lauren remind Maria everything is new at first. Maria will have to give soccer a try to see if she likes it. What have you wanted to try but were afraid to? Like Maria, you can have the courage to try something new, because who knows? That new thing you try might just become your next favorite thing!

Austin loves playing flag football for the Trentwood Tigers. There is only one problem. His team has lost six games in a row, and he doesn’t like losing. At his next game, Austin’s teammate has a plan to trick the other team. It works, but Austin knows his team cheated to win.

Coach Tony and Coach Lauren remind Austin the most important thing about football isn’t winning—it’s playing fair. When his team takes the field for their next game, will Austin choose to cheat again, or will he stand up for what’s right? What would you do if you were in Austin’s shoes?

Review Blurbs from the Amos Faces His Bully VBT

 

So excited to share some of the many great things bloggers said about my latest book, Amos Faces His Bully. 

 

I recommend AMOS FACES HIS BULLY for young readers to show that they do not have to tolerate being bullied. It would make a great addition to school libraries, public libraries, and of course your own library. – The Story of a Writer

Amos Faces His Bully was a cute kids book that I would personally recommend for any child…I hope the author decides to write more books like this one as it was really a great read for a young child! – Sefina Hawke’s Books

I personally found this book to be perfect for young school age children because it gives them an idea of how to deal with bullies and it uses a bible story to do so. I loved the way that the words teach children to put their faith in God. Overall, this a must read book for any young children! – Books for Books

I highly recommend this book for all the children in your life. I love the lesson behind the story and truly enjoyed the story and the illustrations. – Reviews by Crystal

I would recommend this book to parents to read with their children if they feel that they may have an issue with bullying because it may help to solve the problem by giving them the confidence to stand up for themselves. – The Next Best Thing to Mummy

I have read many of Cheryl’s books through the years and she has always been right on point. We need more Christian books like this for young children to have in their hands. – The Blended Blog

While teaching about standing up to bullies, the book also opens the door for reading and talking about scripture — a win-win for parents! – By the Book

This is a great children’s story that encourages children to stand up to bullies but, more importantly, it teaches to put their faith in God by using a story from the Bible. – Bound 4 Escape

What a wonderful read! Lessons mixed right with the bible…Just an all around wonderful book! Star rating beyond a five! – Stormy nights Reviewing & Bloggin’

I really enjoyed this poignant story of handling a very real problem for children using a classic Biblical tale, which creates a fantastic way in which to reinforce or introduce scripture to younger audiences. – That’s What She’s Reading

Book Excerpt:

Amos clutched his knees to his chest. Sitting in the dirt, he blinked to keep the tears from spilling down his cheeks.

Nathaniel and the other neighborhood boys marched around, taunting him.

“Are you going to cry now, baby?” Nathaniel balled his hands into fists and pretended to rub his eyes.

“I’m not crying,” ten-year-old Amos said with a sniffle. He stood and brushed the dirt off his clothes.

“I bet you’re the biggest cry baby in all of Bethlehem,” said Nathaniel.

The boys pushed him back and forth chanting, “Cry baby, cry baby.”

Blogging at Christian Children’s Authors – Amos Faces His Bully

Operation Christmas Spirit by Vicki Watson

A rascally pony, two run-down carts, and a pile of moldy harness seemed like a strange start to a journey full of ups and downs that led Rosie to the most meaningful Christmas of her life. But looking back, she knew it all began that fall day at the livestock auction.

When Billy King asks questions about the biblical Christmas story, his curiosity inspires Rosie and the other children to dive into Scripture for the answers. Together they come up with a secret plan for a unique Christmas celebration–Operation Christmas Spirit.

Operation Christmas Spirit is the eighth book in the Sonrise Stable series, heartwarming stories of an extended homeschooling family as they live, learn, and love together. Mixing adventure, life lessons, and realistic horse stories, the series is a must for readers who enjoy family values, Christian faith, and, of course, horses!
