    Anna's Prayer by Beckstrand, Karl

    (Nonfiction, biography)Second printing."Tapping into the most powerful interest on the planet—the hunger to know who we are and where we come from! … Greatest story … for young and old alike." - Jeff Gallup, TV producer. The true story of Anna Anderson, a young girl living in Sweden in the 1880s with her sister, Ida, and her mother. The women are poor but happy. The little family is persecuted when they change religions, and Anna's mother has trouble finding work. Eventually, she sends Anna and Ida to America without her to find a better life. Because Ida must work in Idaho, the sisters separate, and little Anna travels alone to Salt Lake City. Late at night, Anna arrives at the train station—but her female host is not there to meet her as arranged. Unable to speak English, the child prays that Heavenly Father will send someone to help her—someone who speaks Swedish. But the answer to Anna's prayer goes beyond what she could have imagined. Set in an important era of American immigration history, this picture book about a real immigrant girl transcends culture and time, lauding the courage, faith, and hope of all who seek a better life. 1,000 words by award-winning children's author Karl Beckstrand (Mini-mysteries for Minors [multicultural/bilingual series]), illustrated by Shari Griffiths (ages 4 and up). 30-page, 8.5"x8.5" soft cover (hard via Ingram, also an ebook) hybrid picture book on family (Young American Immigrants series, worldwide rights © 2017 Premio Publishing) PremioBooks.com, Baker & Taylor/Follett, Brodart, Ingram, Amazon/Kindle, Barnes & Noble/Nook, Overdrive, iTunes, Kobo, and select retailers.

    When We Grow Up by Michell, Gladys Turley

    Chicago: Albert Whitman and Company, 1943. Remarkably bright and clean; no owners' marks; there is a small wrinkle in the cloth at the spine heel of the hard cover, a tiny chip at the top right front corner of the dust jacket, and ever so gentle fading along the spine of the jacket, otherwise lovely. The jacket is now protected in an archival sleeve. How strange to reflect on what Americans had taught themselves to expect for their children, so soon after the Depression and so early in the second World War; roles for women are far more diverse than just half a century earler, and for men are often military and mechanical; the illustrations display what may well have been unconscious stereotypes and ideals of beauty (the boy doctor wears glasses, while the engineer and grocer do not). 32pp., color illustrations throughout.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine. Illus. by Illustrated by the Author.
