Hello December, Goodbye 2016!

If December is supposed to bring thoughts of joy, peace and family, why are we all feeling stressed, frenetic and too busy to enjoy the season?  Let's all slow down, take a deep breath and try to appreciate our families and especially, our communities.  We're all in this December together!  Here are three titles to help you celebrate magic and connection, as well as a free shipping offer to make you smile.

I'm New HereI'm New Here
By Anne Sibley O'Brien
Read by  Frankie Corzo, Ariana Delawari, Ramon De Ocampo, Ruth Livier and Anne Sibley O'Brien

Speaking of community, this heartfelt and beautifully rendered message of empathy for the immigrant experience is now available on audio, read by an all-star cast! Read what the author has to say about this audio production:

“The recording is beautiful! I just love it! I'm moved by how wonderfully the actors brought the characters to life and evoked so much emotion in their readings. Even though I created the characters, it feels as if I'm meeting them as real people for the first time. Having the words spoken by a variety of voices embodies and deepens the meaning of the book's themes, as does the soundscape that supports the storyline. Wow! It makes me want to never read it aloud myself, but always use the audiobook!”
