Today I get to share with you two new Zonderkidz titles – one for the teen and one for the little ones, but I think you’ll agree they are great reads for anyone.
This cute beachy cover drew me in right from the cover! A Day is Waiting
“After Don Freeman’s death, the creator of Corduroy, colleagues and his wife decided to use his never before published artwork and make a commemorative book using his wonderful illustrations. Paired with Linda Zuckerman’s thoughtful rhyming text, The Day Is Waiting takes readers on a tour of our big, wide world and reminds us that no matter how far we roam, we always have home to come back to.”
The illustrations are what bring you into this story. A simple and quick read, the pictures are lovely and invoke fun and childish conversation about this world and how we travel in it for adventure and pure joy.
This book went to C’Man on his 13th birthday. Beyond Championships: A Playbook for Winning at Life – this is the Teen Edition!
“Coach Dru Joyce lays out the steps teens can follow to become winners on and off the court. The book speaks to athletes aspiring to emulate LeBron’s success, as well as anyone who feels either uninspired or unable to change the direction of their lives.
In less than ten years, Coach Dru went from someone resigned to a dull-yet-stable existence to one of the highest profile basketball coaches in the country, despite having virtually no background in the sport. It was an incredible transformation, the type most people only dream of, but one Coach Dru proved can become a reality with the right combination of faith and hard work.”
I’m excited to hear what he thinks, but I love that this book teaches our teens a world (like basketball!) that they can easily relate too. Bring in role models like Lebron James and hope they tune in.
