Tiny travelers will enjoy getting closer to Japanese culture in all its splendor. Each illustrated spread invites children to discover hidden "treasures" - icons, animals, statues, instruments and more - that make up majestic Japan. “Most kids today are told that it’s a small world, when in fact it’s a really big world,” says Encantos CEO and Tiny Travelers creator and author Steven Wolfe Pereira. “And because the world is so big, there are many countries, cities, and cultures that have yet to be discovered and explored by kids. We created Tiny Travelers to foster curiosity, empathy, and understanding by learning what makes people and places so special.” “Purpose is at the core of the Tiny Travelers launch... The goal is to expose kids to the vastness and diversity of the world beyond their backyards, engendering empathy for different cultures, geographies and languages at a time when people all over the world are more connected than ever via digital platforms.”- Forbes “The books are full of fun facts, hidden “easter eggs” , and rhyme-based storytelling. They’re infused with keywords from the featured country’s language, helping teach kids correct pronunciation and useful phrases for travel.” - Parentology

Although the town is situated in the middle of the desert, it is a lively place, with a community theater, a robust amateur softball league, and a tight-knight group of residents. But it is an unusual place...one where strange things go bump in the night, and strange creatures with yellow eyes and sharp teeth are seen running across the stark landscape. Because Death Valley is one of the eight places in the world that contains a portal to the Other World. Some call it the Underworld; other call it the Afterlife, Limbo, Tartarus (Norse), Kalichi (Indian), or Mictlan (Aztec). Portals to the Other must always be defended by members of the S.Q.U.A.D. - supernaturally qualified underage disciples—a group comprised of four young teens who represent equal forces of Light and Darkness. Dark and Light must remain in balance, or the else the portal opens, allowing dark creatures from the Other World to enter. So when these monsters begin to appear in Death Valley, the members of S.Q.U.A.D. must bring their unique backgrounds together in order to save the world.

  • Sons and Lovers

    D.H. Lawrence

    Paperback (Alma Classics, May 18, 2021)
    Called the most widely-read English novel of the twentieth century, D. H. Lawrence's largely autobiographical Sons and Lovers tells the story of Paul Morel, a young artist growing into manhood in a British working-class community near the Nottingham coalfields. His mother Gertrude, unhappily married to Paul's hard-drinking father, devotes all her energies to her son. They develop a powerful and passionate relationship, but eventually tensions arise when Paul falls in love with a girl and seeks to escape his family ties. Torn between his desire for independence and his abiding attachment to his loving but overbearing mother, Paul struggles to define himself sexually and emotionally through his relationships with two women-the innocent, old-fashioned Miriam Leivers, and the experienced, provocatively modern Clara Dawes. Heralding Lawrence's mature period, Sons and Lovers vividly evokes the all-consuming nature of possessive love and sexual attraction. Lushly descriptive and deeply emotional, it is rich in universal truths about human relationships.
