Turner Street: Where the Monsters in the Closet are Real (Turner Street Chronicles Book 1)

"R.S. Veira scores big with collection of short stories." - Amazon Reviewer

What if the monsters we thought were lurking under our beds and in our closets were real after all?

For us, the answer to that question can be found in our nightmares, but for the children of Turner Street it’s their reality. Monsters, demons, beasts of the night, or whatever you wish to call them, feast on these adolescents; like cattle raised for slaughter.

The Invisible World Protective Service (IWPS), the agency tasked to protect the children of the world, has been overwhelmed by Turner Street’s unusually high level of supernatural activity. With resources spread thin, drastic measures have been taken. They have been forced to recruit anomalies, children with unique abilities.

A motley crew has been assembled. The team: a teddy bear, a boy and his pet lion, a set of psychic fraternal twins and a time traveler have been saddled with the task of putting an end to the supernatural disturbances on Turner Street. Their success or failure will not only determine the fate of their suburban homes, but of their world.

This collection of short stories is their legacy.

A wacky cross-country adventure starring the fifty states!

"Well, it was just your basic, ordinary day in the good old U. S. of A. States all over the country were waking up, having their first cups of coffee, reading the morning paper, and enjoying the beautiful sunrise.

All the states, that is, except for Kansas."

At the first annual "states party," Virginia and Idaho hatch a plan to swap spots so each can see another part of the country. Before the party is over, all the states decide to switch places. In the beginning, every state is happy in its new location. But soon things start to go wrong. Will the states ever unscramble themselves and return to their proper places?

Packed with madcap humor and whimsical illustrations, this quirky story-starring all fifty states-is chock-full of introductory facts and silly antics that will make learning geography as much fun as taking a vacation.

Children’s Literature, Briefly (6th Edition)


Read More...

A concise, engaging, practical overview of children’s books that keeps the focus on the books themselves, this brief introduction to children’s literature genres leaves time to actually read children’s books. Written on the assumption that the focus of a children’s literature course should be on the actual books that children read, the authors first wrote this book in 1996 as a “textbook for people who don’t like children’s literature textbooks.” Today it serves as an overview to shed light on the essentials of children’s literature and how to use it effectively with young readers, from PreK to 8th grade. The authors use an enjoyable, conversational style to achieve their goal of providing a practical overview of children’s books that offers a framework and background information, while keeping the spotlight on the books themselves. It is the authors’ intention to encourage teachers to develop their own dependable book lists, and to do so they have organized the book lists at the ends of the chapters under five different headings: Fifteen Timeless Gems, Fifteen Gems of the New Millennium, Others We Like, Easier to Read, and Picture Books. The new Ninth Edition of Children’s Literature, Briefly includes a poem and learning objectives at the start of each chapter; brief chapter summaries at the ends of chapters; a reorganization of the information from the first and last chapters into a new first chapter, which more clearly explains the importance of reading and how best to help children become lifelong lovers of reading; a new list of favorite titles, the Fifteen Gems of the New Millennium; the addition of pictures books as a separate category, rather than integrated within the chapter books; updated examples and new research findings; and a greater emphasis on modern publishing trends.
