From #1 New York Times bestselling author Aaron Reynolds comes the third hilariously macabre mystery in The Incredibly Dead Pets of Rex Dexter series. My name is Rex Dexter. Yes. THAT Rex Dexter. The one cursed with the ability to see and talk to dead animals. The solver of atrocities against the four-footed. The savior of the flipper-finned. Save your standing ovation for later, because I have bigger things on my mind. Rabbits. Specifically, dead rabbits. And not just anybunny. This particular gaggle once belonged to Booper the Mystical, Middling Falls’ foremost birthday party magician. A bedroom full of recently deceased bunnies is enough to give anyone a chronic case of the heebie-jeebies. But it gets worse. Because before long, dead doves start showing up by the flockful. One thing quickly becomes clear…somebunny hates magic. Whoever it is, they’re attempting to put Booper the Mystical out of the birthday biz for good. And they’re willing to kill to do it. It’s a cold cruel world out there. But don’t worry. I’m on the case. And so is Darvish. Also, Sami Mulpepper. (Don’t ask.) The point is, nobunny pulls one over on Rex Dexter…and his best friend…and his maybe-girlfriend…and his dead chicken. Nobunny.

With no one to tell them what to do or how to think, the village panics and elects Dave as their new leader.

“Despite extensive study of the poetic features of Psalm 119, the conceptions it advocates and its contribution to developing Judaism have not been well understood; indeed some scholars have dismissed the psalm as containing little more than wearisome repetition. Reynolds distinguishes between the psalmist and the speaker within the psalm. The psalmist portrays the speaker as an exemplary Torah student and thereby promotes the contemplation of Torah as a facet of ethical instruction. Using this new perspective, Reynolds contributes a fresh and coherent understanding of the ideas in Psalm 119. He explains the function of its length and highlights its emphasis on Torah study that became axiomatic in Rabbinic Judaism.”–Publisher’s website.

Sisters take on many varied roles throughout one another’s lives: best friends, caregivers, keepers of each other’s deepest secrets. Sisters depend on one another in different ways at different times perhaps as protectors when they are young, confidantes as they mature, listening ears during the early years of adulthood and marriage, and supporters at the birth of a child or the death of a loved one. Sisters: 100 Ways They Bless Our Lives was written and illustrated by creators of the New York Times best-selling Why a Daughter Needs a Dad in gratitude for the contributions sisters have made to their lives. This might happen at a tea party or at an afternoon of dress up for two young sisters. As they grow older, it might be cooking a family meal together, sewing a family quilt, or enjoying a few minutes together over a quiet cup of coffee. It might also have be in a long, leisurely walk as they reflect on the many blessed moments they have shared.

“I know I always looked up to my father when I was young, but I’m also sure that I usually did a good job of hiding it. Like many children and teenagers, as I was growing up, I was mostly interested in what I wanted to do. Sometimes that put me in conflict with Dad. I’m pretty sure I didn’t notice how hard he worked to provide for me and to support our family, and I’m pretty sure I never gave much thought to how his example provided me with much of what I would need once I left home and went out on my own.” – Best-selling author Gregory E. Lang Lang has learned the most about what his dad did for him by being a father himself. As he looks out for his teenage daughters, he realizes that he is now doing for them what was done for him. As in his relationship with his own dad, at this point in their lives his daughters take for granted so much of what he does for them. Thank You, Dad is Lang’s thank-you to his dad for how his father’s example has guided and inspired him. He simply says, “Dad, you have been my inspiration and my example. Because of you, I know what it means to be a father and a man.” His words touch all of us, expressing the unspoken thoughts between all children and their fathers. “Thank you for helping me take care of the things I couldn’t handle by myself.” “Thank you for standing by me when times were tough for me.” “Thank you for setting limits when I needed them.” “Thank you for showing your pride in me.” “Thanks for requiring me to respect authority.” “Thank you for teaching me to be a good sport, win or lose.” “Thank you for all those time you carried me on your shoulders.” Thank You, Dad is a gift book for anyone who wants to thank the special man in their life and to tell him how important he will always be. In so many ways, all of us build our lives upon what we have learned from our fathers.

One day when best-selling author Gregory E. Lang and his daughter were driving around-she behind the wheel with her learner’s permit-Lang asked himself, “How do I let go of my daughter before I am certain that she is ready for what she will face?” That’s when it occurred to him that she needed more from him than directions for driving; she needed guidance for living. In that moment, the idea for Life Maps was born. And so Lang sat down with his forty-odd years of road traveled behind him and began to write the things he had learned that he wanted to pass along to his daughter. Before long he had compiled hundreds-eventually more than five hundred-pithy bits of fatherly advice: Learn the art of conversation Laugh often, laugh with gusto Make a party out of decorating the Christmas tree Simple things – Important things. It’s often said that it’s the little things that make life worth living. In truth, it’s a thousand little things that add up to one big thing: a happy, fulfilling, treasured life. This timeless guidebook for living touches on hundreds of little things. None are earth-shaking in and of themselves, but taken as a whole they add up to a fulfilling way to live from day to day. An excellent gift book for any age, Life Maps will appeal to anyone looking to smoothen-or avoid-the bumps in the road and to relish the best life has to offer.

How many times have you heard someone say, “I just want to be happy?” In the introduction to Simple Acts, Gregory E. Lang describes himself as “deliriously happy,” though he acknowledges that has not always been the case. Everyone wants to live a happy life, but how does one go about it? Simple Acts is all about creating happiness for oneself and one’s loved ones. According to Lang, happiness isn’t found, it is made. For those who aren’t sure where to start, he suggests hundreds of ways to creatively pursue happiness. “Find a pastry shop and have some baklava. Pick some wildflowers and take them home. Play a card game with friends. Search until you find the good in someone who irritates you.” Happiness is also about spreading laughter-and a good practical joke is a surefire way to do just that. Lang suggests that you “cheat on one of those free internet IQ tests and leave your score on the screen for others to walk past and see.” Or “tell someone you want to walk in their shoes and then insist they give you a pair.” Not too profound, not too intellectual, not too esoteric, Simple Acts is a collection of thoughts and suggestions that will make readers laugh and smile again and again. And who knows, maybe they’ll even be happy.

“My family has been the bedrock of my life – understanding, accepting, loving, helping, and teaching me at every step along my journey. It was from my family that I learned children come first and elders are to be respected, that I learned to give care and solace to those in need, to be thankful always and to give and receive affection often, to live up to my word and duty and to forgive, forget, have fun, and to never miss a chance to tell someone, ‘I love you.’ It is my family that I think about when in moments of reflection I ask myself what I am worth, what I have done with my life, and what I am going to do tomorrow.” – Best-selling author Gregory E. Lang Building a happy, healthy family is a high priority for most of us these days. In Why We are a Family Lang celebrates his family and all families with the traditions, togetherness, and lasting fellowship that strengthens everyone in them. He sees that love is what holds a family together and makes it strong by providing a reservoir of strength and comfort for every member to draw from. Born into a large, loving family, Lang counts his blessings every day for the support and affection his extended family brings to his life. Because of the strong ties that bind his family together, he has no trouble outlining what it means to be a family. From “We help one another, but we don’t keep score” to “We love to sit together and reminisce,” his 100 reasons for why a family is a family will ring true for families of all kinds. With photographs of families by varying sizes and backgrounds, Why We are a Family affirms all that is good about one of the basic building blocks of our lives and the world around us.

It’s almost like Noodle woke up without any bones! Noodle isn’t sick or sad—but he also isn’t interested in going for walks or sitting outside (he will accept snacks, though). Today, all he needs are extra snuggles and belly rubs. Jonathan soon learns that not every day can be a Bones Day, and sometimes a No Bones Day is exactly what you need to get through the week.

Jenna Bush Hager, the former first daughter and granddaughter, #1 New York Times bestselling author, and coanchor of the Today show, shares moving, funny stories about her beloved grandparents and the wisdom they passed on that has shaped her life. To the world, George and Barbara Bush were America’s powerful president and influential first lady. To Jenna Bush Hager, they were her beloved Gampy and Ganny, who taught her about respect, humility, kindness, and living a life of passion and meaning—timeless lessons that continue to guide her. In Midland, Texas, Jenna’s maternal grandparents, Harold and Jenna Welch—Pa and Grammee—a home builder and homemaker, lived a quieter life outside the national spotlight. Yet their influence was no less indelible to their granddaughter. Throughout Jenna’s childhood and adolescence, the Welches taught her the name of every star in the sky, the way a dove uses her voice—teaching her to appreciate the beauty in the smallest things. Now the mother of three young children, Jenna pays homage to her grandparents in this collection of heartwarming, intimate personal essays. Filled with love, laughter, and unforgettable stories, Everything Beautiful in Its Time captures the joyous and bittersweet nature of life itself. Jenna reflects on the single year in which she and her family lost Barbara and George H. W. Bush, and Jenna Welch. With the light, self-deprecating charm of the bestselling Sisters First—cowritten with her twin sister, Barbara—Jenna reveals how they navigated this difficult period with grace, faith, and nostalgic humor, uplifted by their grandparents’ sage advice and incomparable spirits. In this moving book, Jenna remembers the past, cherishes the present, and prepares for the future—providing a wealth of anecdotes and lessons for her own children and all of us. Poignant and humorous, intimate and sincere, Everything Beautiful in Its Time is a warm and wonderful celebration of the enduring power of family and an exploration of the things that truly matter most. “As long as I’m alive, my grandparents will not be forgotten. . . . I hear their voices in the letters they sent me and in my memories. They offer comfort, support, and guidance, and I will listen to them always.”

The former first daughters share intimate stories and reflections from the Texas countryside to the storied halls of the White House and beyond. Born into a political dynasty, Jenna and Barbara Bush grew up in the public eye. As small children, they watched their grandfather become president; just twelve years later they stood by their father’s side when he took the same oath. They spent their college years watched over by Secret Service agents and became fodder for the tabloids, with teenage mistakes making national headlines. But the tabloids didn’t tell the whole story. In Sisters First, Jenna and Barbara take readers on a revealing, thoughtful, and deeply personal tour behind the scenes of their lives, as they share stories about their family, their unexpected adventures, their loves and losses, and the sisterly bond that means everything to them.

Explore the world of such a little mouse–from the bestselling author of LITTLE BLUE TRUCK! “And way down deep in the hole lives a mouse. Such a little mouse, with his smart gray coat, with his ears pink as petals, with three twitchety whiskers on each side of his nose.” With Alice Schertle’s sweet descriptive language and touching illustrations from Stephanie Yue, a little mouse interacts with the world around him. Every season of the year, “such a little mouse” pops out of his hole and goes out to explore the wider world. Praise for Such a Little Mouse: * “The book begins in spring. ‘In the middle of the meadow, under a clump of dandelions, there is a hole.’ Out pops ‘[s]uch a little mouse,’ with ‘ears pink as petals’ and a tiny smile. He sees bees on clover blossoms and his own reflection in a puddle. Each season is represented in one exploratory day. In summer, the mouse sees beavers and a porcupine; in autumn, rustling leaves, honking geese and busy ants. When winter arrives, he sees his landscape covered in snow. ‘Brrrrrrr,’ he says, retreating underground to his cozy burrow, which features tunnels and many discrete rooms–a bedroom, a kitchen and a fully stocked larder. All year he’s been storing seeds, watercress and acorns; now he can bake acorn bread and cook seed-and-watercress soup. Preschoolers will recognize the wooden alphabet blocks that form the base of his counter. Seasons and animals aren’t new topics, but Yue’s idyllic meadowscapes are full of clean, fresh air. From full-page to spot illustrations, from the breezy greens, blues and yellows of spring to the rustic browns of underground, her colors glow gently. Her lines have a light touch but feel grounding; fine details, shadings and a real feel for weather make this special. … Perfectly charming.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review * “Yes, Schertle and Yue’s hero is cute as can be, ‘with his smart gray coat, with his ears pink as petals, with three twitchety whiskers on each side of his nose.’ But he’s also self-reliant, self-directed, and very much at home in the world–in other words, what readers in the target audience aspire to be. The story follows the mouse through spring, summer, and autumn as he emerges from his wonderfully snug underground home to gather food for his winter larder. Neither obsessive nor a procrastinator, the mouse knows he can get the job done and still have time to kibitz with neighbors (he contributes a twig to a beaver’s dam) and savor the scenery (including his own handsome reflection in a puddle). Yue (the Guinea Pig, Pet Shop Private Eye series) channels her customary jaunty energy into a more old-school drawing style, delivering nature scenes that are warm but not treacly, while Schertle’s gentle prose (‘Such a little mouse. Off he goes into the wide world’) has just enough repetition to provide a comforting structure and a cozy lilt.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review Praise for Little Blue Truck (written by Alice Schertle and illustrated by Jill McElmurry) * Schertle “gives readers plenty of opportunities to chime in with animal and vehicle noises.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review Praise for Very Hairy Bear (written by Alice Schertle and illustrated by Matt Phelan) * “Schertle’s patterned language sets up a playful cadence.” –Kirkus Reviews, starred review

A must-read guide for small business owners navigating a critical turning point: when you either level up or give up. It’s never been easier to start a business–and it’s never been harder to scale it. Half of new businesses in America don’t make it past five years. Stacey Abrams and Lara Hodgson want to help today’s entrepreneurs beat the odds by revealing the unseen tethers that keep small businesses from growing and thriving. Drawing on firsthand experience starting and scaling multiple companies over nearly two decades, Now® cofounders Abrams and Hodgson crystallize their hard-won advice into a single how-to, got-to guide for small business owners. In Level Up, they share intense behind-the-scenes stories of building their own businesses, as well as actionable, get-it-done principles for founders looking to propel their ventures forward. This is straight talk from the trenches on real issues like hiring, identifying a revenue strategy, recognizing when growth is a trap, and managing cash flow, from a duo that’s been there. Abrams and Hodgson also elevate and share the experiences of other successful founders including, Jules Pieri of The Grommet, Alisa Clark of Glory Professional Services, and Sheila Jordan of Knowledge Architects. New businesses started by entrepreneurs drive net new job growth. Yet, for the last four decades, startups have increasingly struggled to overcome a system of red tape and barriers to capital and commerce. As a new generation of founders launches a flurry of firms in the wake of the pandemic recession, Abrams and Hodgson offer key insights and support to help entrepreneurs break free and get to the next level.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • From celebrated national leader and bestselling author Stacey Abrams, a gripping thriller set within the halls of the U.S. Supreme Court—where a young law clerk finds herself embroiled in a shocking mystery plotted by one of the most preeminent judges in America. “Abrams follows in Dan Brown’s footprint with this masterfully plotted thriller that unfolds like the ultimate chess match—bold move to bolder move with lives hanging in the balance.”—Lisa Gardner, author of Before She Disappeared “A first-class legal thriller, favorably compared to many of the best, starting with The Pelican Brief, which it brings to mind. It’s fast-paced and full of surprises—a terrific read.”—Scott Turow, author of Presumed Innocent Avery Keene, a brilliant young law clerk for the legendary Justice Howard Wynn, is doing her best to hold her life together—excelling in an arduous job with the court while also dealing with a troubled family. When the shocking news breaks that Justice Wynn—the cantankerous swing vote on many current high-profile cases—has slipped into a coma, Avery’s life turns upside down. She is immediately notified that Justice Wynn has left instructions for her to serve as his legal guardian and power of attorney. Plunged into an explosive role she never anticipated, Avery finds that Justice Wynn had been secretly researching one of the most controversial cases before the court—a proposed merger between an American biotech company and an Indian genetics firm, which promises to unleash breathtaking results in the medical field. She also discovers that Wynn suspected a dangerously related conspiracy that infiltrates the highest power corridors of Washington. As political wrangling ensues in Washington to potentially replace the ailing judge whose life and survival Avery controls, she begins to unravel a carefully constructed, chesslike sequence of clues left behind by Wynn. She comes to see that Wynn had a much more personal stake in the controversial case and realizes his complex puzzle will lead her directly into harm’s way in order to find the truth. While Justice Sleeps is a cunningly crafted, sophisticated novel, layered with myriad twists and a vibrant cast of characters. Drawing on her astute inside knowledge of the court and political landscape, Stacey Abrams shows herself to be not only a force for good in politics and voter fairness but also a major new talent in suspense fiction.

Historians have long been engaged in telling the story of the struggle for the vote. In the wake of recent contested elections, the suppression of the vote has returned to the headlines, as awareness of the deep structural barriers to the ballot, particularly for poor, black, and Latino voters, has called attention to the historical roots of issues related to voting access. Perhaps most notably, former state legislator Stacey Abrams’s campaign for Georgia’s gubernatorial race drew national attention after she narrowly lost to then-secretary of state Brian Kemp, who had removed hundreds of thousands of voters from the official rolls. After her loss, Abrams created Fair Fight, a multimillion-dollar initiative to combat voter suppression in twenty states. At an annual conference of the Organization of American Historians, leading scholars Carol Anderson, Kevin M. Kruse, Heather Cox Richardson, and Heather Anne Thompson had a conversation with Abrams about the long history of voter suppression at the Library Company of Philadelphia. This book is a transcript of that extraordinary conversation, edited by Jim Downs. Voter Suppression in U.S. Elections offers an enlightening, history-informed conversation about voter disenfranchisement in the United States. By gathering scholars and activists whose work has provided sharp analyses of this issue, we see how historians in general explore contentious topics and provide historical context for students and the broader public. The book also includes a “top ten” selection of essays and articles by such writers as journalist Ari Berman, Pulitzer Prize–winning historian David Blight, and civil rights icon John Lewis.

From New York Times bestselling author of Lead From The Outside and political leader Stacey Abrams, a blueprint to end voter suppression, empower our citizens, and take back our country. “With each page, she inspires and empowers us to create systems that reflect a world in which all voices are heard and all people believe and feel that they matter.” —Kerry Washington A recognized expert on fair voting and civic engagement, Abrams chronicles a chilling account of how the right to vote and the principle of democracy have been and continue to be under attack. Abrams would have been the first African American woman governor, but experienced these effects firsthand, despite running the most innovative race in modern politics as the Democratic nominee in Georgia. Abrams didn’t win, but she has not conceded. The book compellingly argues for the importance of robust voter protections, an elevation of identity politics, engagement in the census, and a return to moral international leadership. Our Time Is Now draws on extensive research from national organizations and renowned scholars, as well as anecdotes from her life and others’ who have fought throughout our country’s history for the power to be heard. The stakes could not be higher. Here are concrete solutions and inspiration to stand up for who we are?now. “This is a narrative that describes the urgency that compels me and millions more to push for a different American story than the one being told today. It’s a story that is one part danger, one part action, and all true. It’s a story about how and why we fight for our democracy and win.” ?Stacey Abrams

“Minority Leader is a guide to harnessing the strengths of being an outsider by Stacey Abrams, slated to become the first black female governor in the U.S. Networking, persistence, and hard work are the crucial ingredients to advancing a career, but for people like Stacey Abrams, and many in the New American Majority, it takes more than that to get ahead. Stacey, who grew up in a working poor family in Gulfport, Mississippi, rose from humble roots to Yale Law School, and through a career in C-suite businesses, to become the first woman to lead either party in the Georgia General Assembly and the first African American to lead in the House of Representatives. In Minority Leader, Stacey combines aspects of memoir with real-world advice for women and people of color, offering hard-won insights for navigating worlds that, until now, were largely the territory of white men alone. Stacey encourages her readers both to leverage otherness to their advantage and to recognize their own underlying feelings of unworthiness and legitimate fears. Sure, networking helps, but so do well-chosen mentors, thoughtful self-advocacy, and, above all, pinpointing one’s genuine passions. Stacey applies her lessons to the recent graduate taking her big idea to the startup level, the Latino city councilman eyeing the mayor’s office, and the young assistant navigating her way to a higher position. There is precious little such wisdom out there. Stacey is determined to change that.”–Provided by publisher.
