Synopsis:

Being Me:  empowers little girls to aspire to be anything they want to be and do anything they want to do.

Herbie and ButterBean: a delightful story of two painted pet turtles and all the things they do inside their tank. The children who own them are allergic to fur and feathers, so they have turtles and proclaim them to be very good pets.

This is my Mommy: tells little children, (girls, particularly) what a modern mommy does, and emphasizes the good a busy mother does.

Vittles and Bon Mots, the Best of Both: Author Jan McCanless is a top notch cook and not only shares her recipes, but includes her hilarious food columns with some people she has met along the way. This book also includes some helpful shortcuts and makes a wonderful gift for the chef in your family.  

Murder in the Swamp:  the second in author Jan McCanlesses’s new mystery series about Jimmy and Harlan, and, their ranch in Florida. An adventure that includes cattle rustling, personal struggles, stalking, romance, and, of course, a murder in the swamp that borders their property.
