Give hope to children in troubling times. In these times of the coronavirus aka covid19 taking over everything, causing illness, death, and more, and mass shutdowns occurring throughout the known world, kids are as troubled as anyone else with the new world order. There is no school, no friends, no family, no trips to the store - every part of their lives except for the home has shut down. Using this book you can lightly joke about having to stay at home - while maintaining the necessity - all the while still transmitting the important message that this is just temporary. Through this light and irreverent tale, different kids ask to visit different family members, only to be reminded - we can't do that right now, but we will be able to again soon! Even just acknowledging the difficulty of the situation with your child will make it easier. Allowing children to express themselves, and letting them know it is okay to do so, can help with difficult times as well. Hopefully this helps YOUR child as well, learn to take the situation seriously while also being able to move past it. Give your kids the gift of HOPE. Give your kids the gift of knowing this situation is only temporary - even when we don't know how long it will last. (04/21/2020) About the storyline: Ari Gunzburg's 3 year old daughter has silly and sweet ways of discussing the coronavirus - even just the way she pronounces the word is adorable. Here are a few: "Sweetie, we are going to the store!" "Like, for real going, mommy?" "Oh no, sweetie, we are staying in the car. Because of the coronavirus." "Mommy, can I see my friends again soon?" "No sweetie." "Oh, because of the coronavirus?" "Yes dear." "Bubbie! Can I have an air hug?" [she squeezes her arms together, and so does Bubbie] "Mommy watch out! I'll give you the coronavirus!" [said while licking a finger and holding it out at her, because she didn't want to do something] [and no, she hasn't had it as far as we know] From the author: Nana and Grampy are lightly modeled after my own grandparents, my Nana, may she live and be well, and my Grampy, may he rest in peace. Grampy was a character, originally from Boston (Bah-stin), with a whole lot of "attitude" to lightly mask his abundant love for his large family. Grampy gave everyone a bit of a hard time, but this was the way he showed his love and affection.

Fall in love with the first book in Debbie Macomber's Deliverance Company series featuring a romance between a mercenary and a widow inexplicably drawn together. Cain McClellan had chosen his lifestyle. He thrived on the challenge, the rush that came with putting his life in incredible danger. No woman, he told himself, could make him feel the way he did after a successful mission—no matter how beautiful she was. So why was he standing on a cold pier like a lovelorn teenager, hoping for a glimpse of Linette Collins? But then he saw her, and the sight of her took his breath away. The wind whipped her lustrous dark hair about her face, and she lifted a finger to wrap a thick strand behind her ear. The smart thing to do was turn around and walk away as fast as his feet would carry him. He'd gotten what he wanted. One last look at her. His curiosity should be satisfied. But even as his mind formulated the thought, Cain knew that just seeing Linette again could never be enough

In this “fun, page-turner of a novel” (Sarah Haywood, New York Times bestselling author) that’s perfect for fans of Mostly Dead Things and Goodbye, Vitamin, a morbidly anxious young woman stumbles into a job as a receptionist at a Catholic church and soon finds herself obsessed with her predecessor’s mysterious death. Gilda, a twenty-something, atheist, animal-loving lesbian, cannot stop ruminating about death. Desperate for relief from her panicky mind and alienated from her repressive family, she responds to a flyer for free therapy at a local Catholic church, and finds herself being greeted by Father Jeff, who assumes she’s there for a job interview. Too embarrassed to correct him, Gilda is abruptly hired to replace the recently deceased receptionist Grace. In between trying to memorize the lines to Catholic mass, hiding the fact that she has a new girlfriend, and erecting a dirty dish tower in her crumbling apartment, Gilda strikes up an email correspondence with Grace’s old friend. She can’t bear to ignore the kindly old woman who has been trying to reach her friend through the church inbox, but she also can’t bring herself to break the bad news. Desperate, she begins impersonating Grace via email. But when the police discover suspicious circumstances surrounding Grace’s death, Gilda may have to finally reveal the truth of her mortifying existence. With a “kindhearted heroine we all need right now” (Courtney Maum, New York Times bestselling author), Everyone in This Room Will Someday Be Dead is a crackling and “delightfully weird reminder that we will one day turn to dust and that yes, this is depressing, but it’s also what makes life beautiful” (Jean Kyoung Frazier, author of Pizza Girl).
