Leah's Story tells of an African-American girl born on a rice plantation, who grows up serving her rich owners in Georgia. Her life, like so many others, could have ended there were it not for a bit of education and Emancipation, which gave her, and later her children, opportunities to fulfill their dreams. Told in journal form, taken down by the mysterious “Miss Elliott,” Leah’s personal history comes to life like the tiny birds she carves, revealing a lifetime of love and opportunity amidst a culture filled with hardship, pain, and loss.

Greg’s already time traveled once. It worked out okay. This time, well it’s not so good, since it’s 1778 in Kentucky! The Indians are hostile, Greg’s not sure how to get back to his time, and things are only getting worse. Despite all his attempts, his situation is growing more grim each day. Jump back with Greg in this adventure filled with history, humor, and a whole lot of action!

Children's Literary Classics awarded Greg's Second Adventure in Time a Gold Medal for Historical Fiction and its Seal of Approval:  Greg, a bright, inquisitive and extremely talkative young boy, is not at all pleased when his family moves to Kentucky for his father's job.  He would prefer to be spending his summer with his best friend, Rose.   But instead, his mom has volunteered him to participate in an 18th century reenactment in which he must wear a period costume that is far from comfortable. 

Greg has traveled in time before, but he's not quite sure how.  So, when he finds himself once again back in time, surrounded by five Indians with tomahawks and war paint, he's not entirely sure what to make of the situation. Having learned a thing or two from his previous time travel experiences, he's less afraid and better equipped to maintain a sense of calm as he faces the Indians who have just killed and scalped a man bearing a satchel with letters dated from the summer of 1778.  

Author C.M. Huddleston's Greg's Second Adventure in Time brings history to life as Greg explores our country's new frontier in colonial Kentucky.  Action and adventure abound in this deliciously entertaining read that is likely to spur a keen interest in young readers, as history takes center stage in the continuation of this delightful series.  This book is recommended for home and school libraries and has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.


New York Times bestseller * Six starred reviews

At once provocative, terrifying, and darkly subversive, Dread Nation is Justina Ireland's stunning vision of an America both foreign and familiar—a country on the brink, at the explosive crossroads where race, humanity, and survival meet.

Jane McKeene was born two days before the dead began to walk the battlefields of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania—derailing the War Between the States and changing the nation forever.

In this new America, safety for all depends on the work of a few, and laws like the Native and Negro Education Act require certain children attend combat schools to learn to put down the dead.

But there are also opportunities—and Jane is studying to become an Attendant, trained in both weaponry and etiquette to protect the well-to-do. It's a chance for a better life for Negro girls like Jane. After all, not even being the daughter of a wealthy white Southern woman could save her from society’s expectations.

But that’s not a life Jane wants. Almost finished with her education at Miss Preston's School of Combat in Baltimore, Jane is set on returning to her Kentucky home and doesn’t pay much mind to the politics of the eastern cities, with their talk of returning America to the glory of its days before the dead rose.

But when families around Baltimore County begin to go missing, Jane is caught in the middle of a conspiracy, one that finds her in a desperate fight for her life against some powerful enemies. 

And the restless dead, it would seem, are the least of her problems.
