While searching for toys in my room one night,
I looked under my bed and got such a fright!
A dinosaur peeped at me from under the bed,
I thought he might eat me . . . but instead . . .

This delightful rhyming book depicts the tale of a little boy who teaches a
young dinosaur not to be afraid of the dark.
The vibrant illustrations and rhythmic verse are designed to capture the
imaginations of children and help them see that the dark is not always as
scary as it may seem.

  The Eyes of Innocence series, by Tika Newman

   The Eyes of Innocence series, by Tika Newman

This wildly popular series tells about the life of an orphaned girl as she grows up displaying an innate way with animals and many surprises for her aunt and uncle. By the age of five, Kalina is showing psychic abilities and the power to heal.  The series opens when Kalina is nearly sixteen, and a white horse haunts her dreams.  On her birthday, the horse appears.  The mare is real, and she is hers.

Kalina's tumultuous life is riddled with unanswered questions.  Someone is watching her, and although she is aware of this, she has no fear.  When the day arrives that she actually meets these people, she quickly forms a bond with them, much to her aunt and uncle's dismay.

Follow Kalina's escapades, as she matures into a gifted psychic and healer.  Her aunt and uncle want her to tone down her abilities, but Kalina is unwilling to do as they ask.  If someone needs her, she reacts, especially if a child is involved.  People grow suspicious of her extraordinary powers, and try to prove their theories, but haven't been able to uncover the truth....yet.
Kalina is unique, as is her story.

Finally, we have an author who displays her heartfelt emotions by bringing Kalina alive to us all!
