The Fryeburg Chronicles: A Secret and A Promise After reading Book I of June O'Donal's Fryeburg Chronicles historical fiction series, I must say that I was quite eager to begin Book Two. In her remarkably well-researched work, O'Donal takes us to a simpler yet still well-established Fryeburg of 220 years ago, a time when the village was still small and when Fryeburg Academy began. Today's Academy hardly resembles the single building that sprang from that vibrant edge-of-the-wilderness community of 1792, and yet the ideals of learning and excellence are as alive today as they were then. People and settings jump from the page and take on a life of their own that magically intertwines with who we are today and how we imagine those who lived long before us. I can envision the sounds of children swimming and fishing in the river and clamoring up the school steps even as the dust from the road floats up into the leaves of the elms and maples along Main Street. I can hear the sounds of the farmyard and the voices of the families moving about their days. I can feel the immense joy and crushing sadness that our forebears often experienced and which were never far from reach. Thank you, June, for bringing our roots to life. Timothy G. Scott Director of Development Fryeburg Academy One man...one secret. Two slaves...two choices. Three brothers...one promise. Should one break man's law to obey God? This is the question the Miller family must answer for themselves in this family-friendly, historical novel.

From the creator of the bestselling Anti-Coloring Book series with more than 600,000 copies sold, a new parenting guide to encouraging creativity in preschool-age children Young at Art is the first and only comprehensive book for the general audience about the nature, value and impact of art on very young children. Directed towards parents and educators of one to five year olds, Susan Striker explains why children's art is not a frill, but the very foundation upon which all later fundamental skills are built. She drives home the idea that encouraging children's artistic growth will have beneficial effects on all other aspects of their emotional and intellectual development. At the core of this practical guide is the understanding that art is an important tool in teaching young children crucial concepts related to self-expression, reading and writing. As opposed to more structured exercises, such as coloring on dittos and underlining pictures in workbooks, Striker stresses that scribbling and free drawing experiments are the most important art activities a child can engage in; they better prepare children to read independently as they grow. Young at Art provides descriptions for age-appropriate art activities, tips for carrying them out safely, and helps parents recognize what a child's art work should look like at each stage of development. With Young at Art, parents will develop realistic expectations of their children's work, learn how to speak to their children about their art, and facilitate skills well beyond their creativity that will benefit children.

Winner of the 2011 Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award. In a monastery in the mountains of Mourne during the Middle Ages, one young monk struggled to focus on his task: copying the Bible and other scholarly books with plain brown ink made from wood bark in plain brown books in his plain brown robe at his plain brown desk. Brother Theophane was soon transferred from the scribe’s room and assigned to make the ink that the brothers used. With his natural curiosity, Theophane discovered that inks could be made from other plants besides the wood bark. Berries and leaves produced other beautiful colors. And soon, the books the monks made were illuminated with colors and drawings. C.M. Millen’s charming story of a young monk who defied the discipline of the monastery and found his own way to express the beauty of the world will inspire young readers to explore their own world and find their own voices. Andrea Wisnewski’s illustrations, inspired by the illuminated letters that the medieval monks created in books like the Book of Kells, bring to life the colors and beauty that surrounded Brother Theophane amidst the plain world of the monastery.
