Fall 2019

From time to time, parents and even some educators have asked me about reading scary stories with young children. In some cases, they were concerned about how kids might react to a truly horrifying character or a particularly creepy situation. Sometimes, they were worried that a child might feel overwhelmed by the intensity of a scene.  In other situations, they were afraid that kids might believe in the power of witchcraft or magic.

Stone Soup Spring Newsletter

Add some more info about this item...

Stone Soup, the popular award-winning LittleFolk picture book, reached an elite benchmark in children's publishing by selling over 100,000 copies! "Although a few perennial best-selling picture books like Good Night Moon, The Hungry Caterpillar, or Green Eggs and Ham have sold over millions of copies, very few picture books sell over 30,000 units, so crossing the 100,000 unit mark is a huge accomplishment for Stone Soup."

August House started working with Jameson over 30 years ago when he wrote his Buried Treasures series. Each of the 12 books in the series focused on lost treasures in a specific region like the southwest or the mid-atlantic. The series was an instant classic and continues to be read by anyone interested in treasure caches from the shores of New England to the arid mountain ranges of the Southwest.
