Check out this interview with the author on C-SPAN! In 1912, a revolutionary chick cries, "Strike down the wall!" and liberates itself from the "egg state." In 1940, ostriches pull their heads out of the sand and unite to fight fascism. In 1972, Baby X grows up without a gender and is happy about it. Rather than teaching children to obey authority, to conform, or to seek redemption through prayer, twentieth-century leftists encouraged children to question the authority of those in power. Tales for Little Rebels collects forty-three mostly out-of-print stories, poems, comic strips, primers, and other texts for children that embody this radical tradition. These pieces reflect the concerns of twentieth-century leftist movements, like peace, civil rights, gender equality, environmental responsibility, and the dignity of labor. They also address the means of achieving these ideals, including taking collective action, developing critical thinking skills, and harnessing the liberating power of the imagination. Some of the authors and illustrators are familiar, including Lucille Clifton, Syd Hoff, Langston Hughes, Walt Kelly, Norma Klein, Munro Leaf, Julius Lester, Eve Merriam, Charlotte Pomerantz, Carl Sandburg, and Dr. Seuss. Others are relatively unknown today, but their work deserves to be remembered. (Each of the pieces includes an introduction and a biographical sketch of the author.) From the anti-advertising message of Johnny Get Your Money's Worth (and Jane Too)! (1938) to the entertaining ons in ecology provided by The Day They Parachuted Cats on Borneo (1971), and Sandburg's mockery of war in Rootabaga Pigeons (1923), these pieces will thrill readers intrigued by politics and history--and anyone with a love of children's literature, no matter what age.

SURVIVING DIVORCE: A Divine Love Story " ‘A Divine Love Story’ is not a subtitle you expect to find for a book describing the aftermath of divorce.
Divorce seems like the very antithesis of a love story. But when I think about that incredibly difficult time; the one thing that stands out most as I look back, is the enduring love and tenderness of my Lord. Therefore, although this book alludes to the end of a love story between a man and a woman, it also marks a new beginning. The beginning of me recognizing that the God I served was not just up in the sky looking down, an absently benevolent God. He is ‘El Roi’ The God who sees me (Genesis 16:13). I came face to face with a God who is caring and present in all the vicissitudes of life – just as interested in the life-altering events as He is in the small details. A love story is about as true a description as I could give to my experience because it accurately describes the kind of attention and care and unconditional love that every girl dreams of finding in a lifelong partner; and it portrays the fledgling romance that began there on my knees as I poured out my broken heart...."

Pete Seeger was an American folk musician and social activist whose outspoken songs about freedom and justice got him blacklisted from radio and TV for years. Pete Seeger was still singing and playing the banjo for tens of thousands of fans even when he was at the age of ninety-four.
Born in New York City on May 3, 1919, Pete came from a family of musicians. Despite writing and singing folk songs that all of America knows, not many kids know his name. Why? Because his ties to the Communist Party got him banned from radio and television for many years! Well-known for his civil rights activism with Martin Luther King Jr., Seeger also spearheaded efforts that cleaned up the Hudson River and made it beautiful again. His best-known songs include "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?," "If I Had a Hammer" and "Turn, Turn, Turn." In this easy-to-read biography from the New York Times best-selling series, Pete Seeger is revealed as not just a performer but as a champion for a better world and the eighty illustrations contained in the book help bring his story to life.
This book focuses on fictional characters that chronicle life experiences that they've dealt with through poetry. Each person discusses an experience that has changed and impacted them in ways they never thought of. These people only have names, race or ethnicity is not discussed because the goal is to feel, understand and relate to their experiences as human beings. Too many times in today's society we base things off of social stigmas, race, ethnicity, social class when we are all human beings with daily struggles that no one will ever know. Life is a journey and a gift and we should cherish it with the time that we have. We also should be more open to discussing societal issues, having an open mind and respecting each other's opinions, thoughts and feelings no matter if they're good, bad or indifferent because at the end of the day, experiences shape who we are.
