In a series of whimsical dream images, Wangerin captures young children's nighttime fears and dispels each through a parent's heroic deed. Finally comes the ultimate assurance of peaceful slumber: the picture of a watchful God, who . . . ""Loves you, my baby true, from the brown of the ground to the blue of the sky. From the golden dawn to the grey of goodbye. From ear to ear a million years. And butterflies both your eyes. God loves you." This book is a passport to sweet dreams, a perfect way to end the day--together.

God Listens When You're Sad: Prayers When Your Animal Friend Is Sick Or Dies

product image
$8.00
God Listens When You're Sad: Prayers When Your Animal Friend Is Sick or Dies follows the mourning process of children through a series of prayers that recognizes several aspects of a child's grief--the difficulty of understanding sickness and death, the feelings of worry and fear, having a dream about the deceased animal, one's physical experience of grief, and the sense that adults don't understand what they are going through. Written from a child's viewpoint, the prayers respond to the love and care that naturally exist between children and animals. Through these prayers, children also have the opportunity to deepen their relationship with God. The book contains a blank page upon which the child can glue a photograph of the animal(s) for which they are praying.

SILENT DREAMS

product image
$16.00
With no parents and no home, Camilla's weekend visits to the silent movie house with her auntie offer escape from an otherwise bleak existence. The other down-and-outers -- Boxcar Betty, Fingers Freddy, Toots, and Two-Time Tommy -- collect pennies so Camilla and her aunt can live the enchanted lives of the people who illuminate the mighty screen -- if only for an hour or so.

With nostalgia and grace, Dandi Daley Mackall weaves an eloquent tale of hope and perseverance in the face of misfortune, of the will to survive by living through one's dreams, but above all, the valor of the human spirit. Karen Jerome perfectly captures the silent movie era with startlingly poignant images that reflect the vitality and joy of mankind, even in the face of adversity.
