Little Critter: Just Big Enough, written and illustrated in full color by bestselling author Mercer Mayer, offers a gentle but important lesson about bullying. In this 8x8 paperback, Little Critter is being bullied. Bigger kids steal his seat on the bus, eat his cupcakes, and won’t let him play football with them. Little Critter decides he has to get bigger, too. So he stuffs himself with vegetables, exercises until he’s exhausted, and turns himself a growing machine. He’s so disappointed when his hard work fails… But his grandfather helps him see that bigger isn’t always better. With this encouragement, Little Critter leads a team of smaller kids in a relay race against the big kids. And the little kids win!

Dr. Robin L. Smith, noted psychologist, ordained minister, motivational speaker, and best-selling author of Lies at the Altar, seemed to have the perfect life, but underneath it all, she felt empty. In this powerful new work, Dr. Robin painstakingly chronicles a time when she felt at the end of her rope, unable to truly see herself or escape the unrelenting craving in her heart. Throughout her life, she had always focused on living up to everyone else''s expectations, doing everything they asked-everything they recommended-in the hopes that by pleasing others she would find fulfillment and success. Instead she found herself spiritually and emotionally starved with a hungry soul begging for change. Through vivid descriptions of the symptoms of her hunger, the gnawing emptiness in her soul, and her courageous journey to discovering herself, Dr. Robin opens a window into her own experiences in order to provide insight into yours. With clarity and empathy she starts you on a path to uncovering the real you-the you that lays beneath all the doubt, superficiality, and life crises. Dr. Robin honestly bares her soul and shares her story-plus stories of other hungry souls including her friends, clients from her psychology practice, family, and celebrities-and in the process, teaches you to recognize, survive, embrace, and conquer your own hunger. She teaches you to step into your own story so you can listen to and learn from the wisdom within.

But when her new popular friends start showing their true colors and making fun of others, Annabelle becomes fed up with fashion trends and popularity.

Knowing there's a school dance coming up, Dr. Varma challenges Annabelle to learn how to dance.
