Go nuts for pistachios


Children's Books

A little boy receives a snake for his birthday from his father and he was rather excited about it. This is no ordinary snake because when the little boy asks what he should name the snake, the snake curves his body into the name Blake. And that's just the beginning in "My Snake Blake" by Randy Siegel.

"Mom It's My First Day of Kindergarten" by Hyewon Yum features a little boy ready for his first day of school. But is mom ready? This story which features a role reversal, will find both children and adults ready to talk about what to expect when school starts.

Molly has always wanted a little sister and now she has Chloe. Molly always thought a little sister would be exactly like her. But Chloe is totally different. "Chloe, Instead" by Micha Player takes a humorous look at the two sisters and their differing personalities.
