Yummy Healthy Tasties In My Tummy is a book filled with beautiful illustrations by Marcia Noisette Wood and tasty food images prepared and photographed by Cynthia Jackson. Additionally, there is a catchy chant entitled The Yummy Tummy Chant written by Helen Hope Kimbrough that keeps the book interesting and exciting. In no time, children will be chanting and wanting healthy foods.
Ocean Waves and Other Tales is a multi-cultural book comprised of four short stories: Ocean Waves, I Am Loved, Baby Bear, and I'm Sleepy. Throughout this book, you will notice how the simplest expressions can make the greatest impact for ALL children in love, hope, togetherness, and of course, music. Music is an additional component that brings these stories to life in a universal and classic way.
Play Dates and Other Tales features similar concepts like Ocean Waves and Other Tales. This multi-cultural book uses the same characters (only a little older), and shares four relatable short stories: You, Many Colors, Number Chant, and Play Dates, and contains beautiful illustrations and a musical CD. Educationally, I just love how these elements come together to formulate fun and interesting reading for all children.
My Soul/African American Spirituals: Embracing the Journey is a family-oriented book which honors the legacy of spirituals and symbolizes struggle, perserverance, strength, faith, hope and freedom.
