"Something’s Amiss With Miss Priss!" Can you guess what it is? The author’s daughter Caroline was the inspiration for the book. Miss Priss is a sweet little girl who is just starting school. She is full of energy, but has a habit of talking too much.

This charming children’s story follows the little girl through the process of learning when and how to communicate with others. Her loving parents and her determined teacher both help Miss Priss see the light and follow the correct social graces. See how Miss Priss matures during the course of her first year in school. And now there’s no longer anything Amiss With Miss Priss.

Something’s Amiss With Miss Priss (ISBN: 978-1-61204-382-1) is available for $18.95.

In the charmingly illustrated tale Well, For Goodness Sake Little Jake, Jake is a happy, active little boy about three years old. His smiling bright blue eyes reflect the constant twinkle of the mischief going on in his mind.

Sometimes Jake bites off a bit more than he can chew, but luckily, his mother is always there with wise words and love, no matter what trouble Jake manages to find.

This fun story will speak to parents everywhere (and to their own little troublemakers).

Well, For Goodness Sake Little Jake (ISBN: 978-1-60693-675-7) is available for $11.50.
