Pictures & stories, love & Lessons

no book is more lasting than a book for children, for we carry its lessons with us all our lives. we'd like you to introduce you to our first GRoup of marvelous children's authors and to their delightfulbooks as well.


Noah Baird, author of Donations to Clarity (for grown-ups!) wanted to attend the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College, but his grades weren't good enough (who knew?). However, his grades were good enough to fly for the U.S. Navy (again, who knew?), where he spent 14 years until the government figured out surfers don't make the best military aviators. Southpaw was written at the request of his two children, who wanted him to write a book they could read.


In a wacky town of only left-handed people, something is not right . . . South Paw explores the ideas of discrimination, bias, and acceptance. Read this book for enjoyment, or use it to stimulate deeper discussions on how we should treat each other.

In Heaven there’s a special place called Heaven’s End, far past the golden gates, at the end of the golden streets, in a tiny corner that can just barely be seen through billowing clouds called Heaven's End. Heaven’s End is just for animals – pets, to be exact. And one day, one of the pets who was supposed to go to heaven could not be found anywhere. Where was Mr. Snickers?

That beat filled them up so much it spilled out into their music. Side by Side is the story of two jazz legends who were born in North Carolina and went on to change the course of music forever.
