Can average be amazing? The bestselling author of Frindle shows that with a little kindness, it can.

Jordan Johnston is average. Not short, not tall. Not plump, not slim. Not gifted, not flunking out. Even her shoe size is average. She's ordinary for her school, for her town, for even the whole wide world, it seems.

Then Marlea Harkins, one of the most popular girls in school--and most definitely the meanest--does something unthinkable, and suddenly nice, average Jordan isn't thinking average thoughts anymore. She wants to get Marlea back! But what's the best way to beat a bully? Could it be with kindness?

Called "a genius of gentle, high concept tales set in suburban middle school" by The New York Times, bestselling author Andrew Clements presents a compelling story of the greatest achievement possible--self-acceptance.

The gods help them that help themselves . . . We would often be sorry if our wishes were gratified . . . Appearances are deceptive . . . These and many other familiar proverbs — in fact, many of the moral values that form the foundation of our daily lives — were expressed in tales from ancient Greece, credited to Aesop, the legendary storyteller.
This volume, edited by the celebrated English folklorist Joseph Jacobs, contains a rich selection of these time-honored tales, among them "The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse," "The Fox and the Crow," "The Lion and the Mouse," "The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing," "The Goose with the Golden Eggs," "The Old Man and Death," "Belling the Cat," "The Hare and the Tortoise," and dozens more.
Retold with wit and sparkle in simple, direct language, these short, clever stories offer young readers wonderful lessons in right and wrong, and many valuable insights into life, both its joys and perils. Over 170 classic illustrations by Richard Heighway bring the stories vividly to life for readers and listeners alike.

East of Eden

A masterpiece of Biblical scope, and the magnum opus of one of America’s most enduring authors

In his journal, Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck called East of Eden "the first book," and indeed it has the primordial power and simplicity of myth. Set in the rich farmland of California's Salinas Valley, this sprawling and often brutal novel follows the intertwined destinies of two families—the Trasks and the Hamiltons—whose generations helplessly reenact the fall of Adam and Eve and the poisonous rivalry of Cain and Abel.

The masterpiece of Steinbeck’s later years, East of Eden is a work in which Steinbeck created his most mesmerizing characters and explored his most enduring themes: the mystery of identity, the inexplicability of love, and the murderous consequences of love's absence. Adapted for the 1955 film directed by Elia Kazan introducing James Dean and read by thousands as the book that brought Oprah’s Book Club back, East of Eden has remained vitally present in American culture for over half a century.

This Penguin Classics edition features an introduction by David Wyatt.

The Three-In-One Multipurpose Family Book!

We have always had a tradition in our home of praying and reading the Scriptures each morning with our children, and having family devotions each evening. We have endeavored to purchase and use as much good children s material as possible, in order to train our five dear children in the things of the Lord from the day they were born. Unfortunately today, many precious lives are being led astray by the evil teaching of evolution. Young children spend countless hours, in front of a television set, watching humanistic evolutionary programs. It has been our burden to produce quality books that children and parents can use together, not only to learn about the Bible and God s word, but also to defend the Christian faith against the onslaughts of evolutionary ideas that are so pervasive in our society. The Scripture plainly teaches that the father is to be the spiritual head of the family, and the father to the children shall make know thy truth. (Isaiah 38:19) We believe this book provides a unique opportunity for parents, and particularly fathers, to spend time with their children, and teach them the wonderful truths of creation using those fascinating creatures the dinosaurs. We have tried to make this book entertaining, instructive, and colorful. We wrote it as a rhyme book, as we have found that most children enjoy learning and reciting rhymes. We hope this will be a book that parents as well as children will love. It should stimulate family togetherness, and encourage the reading of books, rather than the watching of television. It is our prayer that this book will cause children to request more and more: Please, read me a story, Daddy. Ken and Mally Ham
