Worthy of Their Esteem
Abraham Lincoln is one of the most revered Presidents in the history of the United States. His persistence saved the Union, and preserved our Constitution. But his wisdom, with its homespun feel, and far deeper meanings, was the backbone of his enduring popularity. The combination of his sense of self -effacing humor and stories of backwoods life helped Lincoln make his points with the masses, and helped him communicate with a country at its lowest point, and in the middle of a terrific struggle.
Author Iain C. Martin assembles Lincoln's most popular and best quotations and bits of wisdom which helped Lincoln to endure through the ages. Funny, poignant, and inspiring, the greatness of the man shines through as never before.
"Abraham Lincoln's life helped define the essence of being an American and the ideals of freedom, and Worthy of Their Esteem offers a rich collection of the best of his sayings, grouped according to what major themes they address. Added historical and biographical background plus vintage illustrations make this a top pick for a wide range of collections..." -- The Midwest Book Review
Write Like Hemingway
An examination of how The Kansas City Star’s style guide shaped Hemingway’s unmistakable writing style.
Acclaimed for his lean, succinct prose, Write Like Hemingway connects the dots between Ernest Hemingway’s earliest writing job and his most memorable fiction. After graduating high school, and before heading to Italy to drive an ambulance during World War I, “Papa” spent about 6 months over the course of 1917 and 1918 writing police reports for The Kansas City Star. Following the paper’s style guide, with rules like “Use short sentences,” and approximately 100 more similarly exacting ones, Hemingway learned how to write, and carried these lessons of narrative economy with him for the rest of his life.

Your Bedroom is a Rainforest!
Go on a journey through the jungle without ever leaving your bed! With Your Bedroom is a Rainforest!, kids can transform an ordinary room into a habitat for some of Earth’s most amazing creatures with reusable, wall-safe (and BPA-free!), glow-in-the-dark stickers—everything from blue morpho butterflies to Bengal tigers to poison dart frogs!
“What’s your favorite animal?” The answer to this question, much like one’s favorite color, can say a lot about a kid. Maybe they’re into gorillas because they admire their nobility; maybe the colors of a toucan capture their imagination; maybe they like crocodiles because they take to water. While there are countless possible answers to this question, one thing is almost certain: they probably aren’t going to say, “squirrel.” No, the favorite animal of a child tends to be exotic, dangerous, fast, and maybe even endangered. In the past, a long and expensive trip to the zoo was required for kids to pay a visit to their beast of choice. Well, not anymore! Your Bedroom is a Rainforest! brings the incredible ecosystems of Central America, northern South America, western Africa, Southeast Asia, and beyond, right to the walls of your child’s bedroom!
Within this keepsake-worthy hardcover book you will find more than 60 reusable stickers of jaguars, capybara, scarlet macaws, monkeys, forest elephants, anacondas, and many more adorable—and sometimes ferocious—animals glow in the dark and bring your environment to life. Along with the stickers, kids can look forward to pages packed with illustrations of their favorite animals accompanied by fascinating, and often hard-to-believe facts, such as:
- Most pandas spend half the day eating. - Toxic poison dart frogs have neon colors to warn predators. - Tiger urine smells like buttered popcorn. - Without sloths, there would be no avocados! - Lions may be called the kings of the jungle, but they don’t live anywhere near them. - Much of the life in the rainforest is found in the trees. - Unlike many other cats, jaguars do not avoid water; in fact, they are excellent swimmers.
The high-quality, glow-in-the-dark stickers might be what gets kids interested, but the amazing facts are sure to be what keeps them around. And the best part? You’re never too old to appreciate amazing jungle animals!

Your Bedroom is an Ocean!
Turn your home into an underwater utopia with Your Bedroom Is An Ocean!, a one-of-a-kind craft book filled with everything a young seafarer needs to transform their space into an ethereal ecosystem!
Why look to the sky for mystery and wonder when one of history’s greatest puzzles is right below our noses? Earth’s oceans remain one of the most mystifying entities in existence. Swarming with species that have yet to be identified and housing unique characters like sailors, pirates, and (according to some) aliens, the planet’s waters are one of the remaining frontiers of our modern world. So why wouldn’t children want to immerse themselves in this mystical environment?
Your Bedroom Is An Aquarium! gives them that power, making ocean exploration as easy as 1-2-turn the page please! And trust us, these pages are filled to the brim with facts and activities too irresistible to ignore, like…
- The largest ocean is the Pacific, which covers 30% of the Earth’s surface. - Tsunamis can thunder in at 500 miles per hour, on a good day. - The water emitting from hydrothermal vents deep beneath the surface can reach up to 750 degrees Fahrenheit. - The planet’s largest mountain range is not the Andes...it’s the Mid-Oceanic ridge and it’s nearly ten times longer than it’s above-the-surface counterpart, clocking in at a mind-boggling 40,390 miles. - Have you heard of The Bloop? It’s not a children's TV character; it’s the largest “ocean sound” that has ever been recorded, and it happened in 1997. - There are over 3 million shipwrecks peppering our ocean floors. - 91 percent of sea creatures have yet to be discovered, which means marine biologists still have a lot of work to do.
Want more? Don’t worry. As the universe’s largest inhabited space, the world’s oceans have plenty of information to offer, all of which will be folded within the pages of our bubbly book. More than just a textbook, though, Your Bedroom Is An Aquarium! is also jam-packed with stunning photographs and textile add-ons like stickers that will help kids and parents alike submerge themselves into this perplexing underwater adventure.
