Countdown to Christmas:
24 Days of the Jesse Tree Tradition
by Theresa Seidlitz & Marguerite Hartill - illustrated by Katia Lara
During the weeks before Christmas, Christian families prepare to remember the birth of Jesus.  As they do, family traditions fall into place, and children, get very excited about the celebration to come.  Countdown to Christmas: 24 Days of the Jesse Tree Tradition allows your family to take time to know the people in the Bible and to see their connection to Jesus.  To begin the tradition, set up a small 2' - 3' high tree in your home and read one story every night in the days before Christmas.  After each story, hang an ornament to remember the biblical figures, starting with Adam and Eve and ending with Jesus.  Night by night, children learn that Jesus had a family just like they do.  This beautifully illustrated book will help you establish a cherished holiday tradition to your own family.  Includes a complete set of full-color ornaments.

from Lanterns to Liberty
the story of Midnight Rider Paul Revere
by Bill Perryman & Marguerite Hartill - illustrated by Katia Lara
On the night of April 18, 1775, a dark-eyed, Boston silversmith galloped into history on what might have been the most frightening night of his life...the eve of the American Revolution!  Today, Paul Revere, is an American icon, but who was this man we so affectionately know as Paul Revere?  What really happened to Paul Revere and the midnight express riders on the night of April 18, 1775?  Was he really arrested by the Redcoat patrols?  Did he complete his mission?  What did he know about those signal lanterns at the Old North Church, and why was he carrying a trunk full of papers across Lexington Green just prior to the shot heard round the world? From Lanterns to Liberty catapults the reader into the middle of the action on his historic night and reveals the answers to these intriguing questions.  The spellbinding story of Paul Revere and the midnight express riders is riveting and remarkable.  It is a passionate slice of the American persona that every person should know!
