Five Star Publications: Children's Book Giveaway!


Five Star Publications offers quality publishing services and has set a trend amongst small press publishers.  Currently, Five Star Publicaions is celebrating their 25th anniversary! 

It’s a nice one-stop-shop because while you gain insight about the books they have available, they also offer information about the authors!  In addition, why go to the bookstore when you can order the books straight from them? (ps- They accept Paypal… huge bonus in my book—no pun intended!)

Their children’s book collection offers selections for kids of all ages and on various topics.  They also have an assortment of cookbooks, poetry books, educational books, books for Kindles, and more!

 


Rattlesnake Rules: Conrad demystifies the world of rattlesnakes and introduces children to such topics as who, when, and what rattlesnakes eat. He shows readers why rattlesnakes have rattles and what it means if you hear one. You will learn how the snakes’ forked tongues help them survive. The delightful and colorful illustrations of Nathaniel P. Jensen help bring the story alive. 

Addie Slaughter: The Girl Who Met Geronimo - Famous Sheriff John Slaughter’s young daughter, Addie, bravely travels from Texas to the Arizona-Mexico border, settling on the 1800s Slaughter Ranch. Along the way, her mother dies; she narrowly escapes a stagecoach robbery and murder; an earthquake destroys the ranch; her father's earlobe is shot off; and she meets Geronimo. 

Cheery: The true adventures of a Chiricahua Leopard Frog
More info: Cheery is a Chiricahua Leopard Frog. He starts as an egg in a pond, turns into a tadpole, and then into a frog. Dr. Elizabeth W. Davidson explains why Leopard Frogs and other amphibians might become extinct. Cheery: How a Lonely Frog Finds Friends tells children what can be done to save the frogs. 

Shakespeare for Children: The Story of Romeo and Juliet - Highly condensed, fully illustrated version of the world's greatest and most tragic love story. Author supplies thought-provoking discussion questions that allows you to explore this tale from any age or perspective. Use the same discussion questions to help you explore the other plays from a similar perspective. More info: 

Gunfight at the O.K. Corral: Luke and his sister Jenny aren't overly excited when they first learn of their mother's plan to take them to Tombstone, Arizona, as part of their vacation. That changes in a hurry when they are suddenly swept back to the 1880s and the famous gunfight at the O.K. Corral. The ghost of the Grand Hotel's handyman, a kindly gentleman by the name of Swamper, guides them through the events of that fateful time. Young readers are right there with Luke and Jenny as they learn firsthand the story of the Earp brothers and what led to the historic shootout. 

Billy the Kid and the Lincoln County War: As Luke and his sister Jenny resume their summer vacation their mother plans a stop at the historic town of Lincoln, New Mexico. But when a thunderstorm begins to brew, Luke and Jenny realize things aren't what they seem. Suddenly they are swept back in time and find themselves face-to-face with the notorious Billy the Kid. The ghost of Paul, a young buffalo soldier who lived over a century ago, guides them on their journey as they experience the life and times of this mysterious young outlaw. Will Billy the Kid live up to his legend?

We chose Rattlesnake Rules to read to my son.  Boys + Snakes = FUN, right?  He liked the book but my daughter got more of a kick out of it than he did.  It's always nice seeing her read to him... I guess that's the beauty of reading... it can bring families together and create memories!
