Blossom, a colorful one-eyed monster, is terrified of the noises she hears above her bed. She eventually meets her biggest fear and soon realizes that Ivy, the girl sleeping in the bed above hers, is not a monster -- she's actually a friend. The book asks readers to consider what monsters would think about them. An adorable story about building courage, facing fears, and perspective.
Watch this little girl confidently get ready for her first camping trip. She brings all the right gear (her tent, her bag and her lamp). She feels prepared for her overnight adventure until darkness sets. She's a little scared hearing the animals and other noises -- but her mom is right there.
Learn about the millions of women it took to get the right to vote in America. The book starts by defining who is a citizen. You'll learn why men ignored their wives and feared allowing women to have a say in how our country is run. You'll discover the constitution's vague language which later led to discussions on whether voting is an earned privilege or natural right. You'll also read about powerful women like Queen Amina (who ruled present day Nigeria) and Native American Chief, Weetamoo, of the Pocasset Wampanoag, who successfully led their people.
