Mosquitoes Can't Bite Ninjas

Available wherever books are sold, but why not help out my childhood favorite bookstore, Bookshop Santa Cruz!

Mosquitoes can bite all kinds of people--ballerinas, chefs, babies, even you and me. But they can't bite . . . NINJAS! Mosquitoes might be quick, but ninjas are quicker. Mosquitoes might be sneaky, but ninjas are sneakier. And mosquitoes might be hungry, but ninjas are . . . hungrier!

With tons of not-very-stealthy appeal, Jordan P. Novak's debut delivers buzzy, wacky, and hilarious story.

10% of royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to the Against Malaria Foundation.

Be a Tree

Be a Tree is the delightful story of a young girl who notices the wonderful attributes of trees and wants to grow up to have those attributes.

A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be divided equally between the Arbor Day Foundation and the YanaCocha Rescue Centre in Ecuador. The Arbor Day Foundation is the largest nonprofit membership organization dedicated to planting trees. The YanaCocha Rescue Centre rescues and rehabilitates wildlife species and reintroduces them into the Tamandua Ecologic Reserve. The destruction and fragmentation of habitat in the Ecuadorian Amazon is considered the greatest threat to biodiversity conservation and the primary cause for the extinction of wild species in the region. YanaCocha is working to combat this threat by preserving the Amazonian rainforest and populating it with native birds, mammals, amphibians, and reptiles to create a healthy and thriving ecosystem.

Royal Fireworks Philosophy Curriculum

Question Mark is less of a textbook and more of a picture book, with mind-opening ideas and activities conveyed through words and images working together. The fifteen chapters fall into three parts, corresponding to the three central philosophical skills we want children to develop: questioning, doubting, and being certain. These are fundamental skills that have inspired great thinkers throughout the history of civilization to build and transform the intellectual world.
