Each chapter includes as much instruction as possible for a wide range of motions. Pick and choose the amount of movement that is right for your storytime crowd, or do it all!

When a visit from Mandy’s cousin turns out to be more frustrating than fun, the girls discover that they just might cook up a solution in the kitchen in this sweet and spirited story. Mandy Berr is super excited that her favorite cousin in the whole world, Paige, is coming to visit. After all, Mandy is usually stuck at home with the twins and annoying little brother, Timmy, so the chance for some fun girl time is definitely worthy of many “wahoos!” But when Paige arrives, she is not the fun cousin that Mandy remembers. To start, Paige wants to call her “Manda,” with no “y.” She no longer likes Rainbow Sparkle, their favorite TV show. She doesn’t want to bounce on the bed or play dress-up. And, in the ultimate betrayal, Paige actually likes hanging out with the twins and Timmy. Mandy does not like these changes one bit. To try and help bring the girls together, their grandma suggests the girls make some recipes out of a special cookbook—if they can work together, she will take them to a carnival at the end of the week. But having two bosses in the kitchen isn’t working out, and it looks like Mandy's visit with Paige is about to go up in smoke. Can the two cousins clear the air and whip up a fancy meal for the family?

Garrison Keillor once said that "cats show us that not everything in nature has a purpose." The Way of the Cat, however, shows how cats may be in our lives to help us follow our bliss. Iggy, Isabel, and Inky are three cats that have shown author Dana Kramer-Rolls how to get in touch with her inner cat--and discover the secrets of a blissful life, which include: * Stretching all over is one of life's pure and simple pleasures. * Doing nothing well is a feline art form anyone can practice. * We can all just get along when we live together well. Kramer-Rolls's philosophy is simple: By "being as simple and direct as our cats, we can achieve a 'higher' or at least more natural and less-stressed state. Get involved with your cats. Their wisdom is now open to you, and you can learn everything they have to teach." The funny and surprising Way of the Cat guides readers through the days and lives of Kramer-Rolls's cats and teaches them the ways of feline wisdom: * Learn to move silently and sleep deeply, as long as necessary. * Exercise by doing the "crescent moon stretch" and indulge in the fun of rolling around on the floor. * Practice feline empathy--and find out how to heal the world. * Celebrate bliss. The Way of the Cat is packed with fun tips, exercises, cat stories, and food for thought--all drawn from the blissful lives cats lead every day.

For fans of Michael Connelly and CJ Box, the fifth audacious and white-hot novel in the Charlie Hood series from New York Times bestseller and Edgar-award winner T. Jefferson Parker redefines the landscape of the thriller and shatters every expectation you ever had about the good guys and the bad. Now featuring an excerpt from his upcoming novel The Room of White Fire. When Benjamin Armenta, leader of the powerful Gulf Cartel, kidnaps songwriter Erin McKenna, his demands are as unique as the jungle fortress in which Erin is imprisoned. She’s ordered to compose a narcocorrido, a folk ballad that will romanticize Armenta as one of the greatest desperadoes in Mexican history. Allowed to wander the hallways of the castle with only a guitar and a mysterious old priest to keep her company, Erin must produce the loveliest song these men have ever heard. Or she’ll be skinned alive. As Erin’s music wafts through the jungle, it serves as a siren call to the two men who love her: lawman Charlie Hood and Erin’s outlaw husband, Bradley Jones. They have the power to rescue her, but their long-simmering rivalry could very well compromise Erin’s deliverance and cause the ending of a life-and-death ballad to be rewritten in blood.
