Spices & Seasons: Simple, Sustainable Indian Flavors Hardcover by Rinku Bhattacharya

The Adventures of Supermom®In this new cookbook, author Rinku Bhattacharya combines her two great loves-- Indian cooking and sustainable living--to give readers a simple, accessible way to cook seasonally, locally, and flavorfully.

Inspired by the bounty of local produce, mostly from her own backyard, Rinku set out to create recipes for busy, time-strapped home cooks who want to blend Indian flavors into nutritious family meals. Arranged in chapters from appetizers through desserts, the cookbook includes everything from small bites, soups, seafood, meat and poultry, and vegetables, to condiments, breads, and sweets.

As exotic and enticing as these recipes sound, the ingredients are easily found and the instructions are simple. Rinku encourages readers to explore the bounty of their local farms and markets, and embrace the rich flavors of India to cook food that is nutritious, healthy, seasonal and most importantly, delicious.

Sweet Survival-Tales of Cooking & Coping Paperback by Laura Zinn Fromm

The Adventures of Supermom®“I grew up eating chocolate mousse with a silver teaspoon.” So begins the title essay from this delightful compilation—two parts memoir, one part cookbook from Laura Zinn Fromm. An award-winning journalist and self-described sugar addict, Fromm is funny and frank in this moving account of trying to find comfort in a family fraught with mental illness. Fromm worked for years as a reporter at Business Week, living in Manhattan and barely cooking at all. Craving a kitchen that could accommodate more than one, she returned, with her husband and two young sons, to live in the idyllic New Jersey town where she grew up. There, Fromm set about learning to cook and cope as she navigated 9/11, her father’s illness and her decision to create a grown up life in her childhood town. These essays are warm and generous, as are her recipes and cooking advice.

The Secrets of Midwives Hardcover by Sally Hepworth

The Adventures of Supermom®The Secrets of Midwives is women’s fiction at its finest.

Three generations of women, Secrets in the present and from the past, A captivating tale of life, loss, and love…

Neva Bradley, a third-generation midwife, is determined to keep the details surrounding her own pregnancy—including the identity of the baby’s father— hidden from her family and co-workers for as long as possible. Her mother, Grace, finds it impossible to let this secret rest. The more Grace prods, the tighter Neva holds to her story, and the more the lifelong differences between private, quiet Neva and open, gregarious Grace strain their relationship. For Floss, Neva’s grandmother and a retired midwife, Neva’s situation thrusts her back sixty years in time to a secret that eerily mirrors her granddaughter’s—one which, if revealed, will have life-changing consequences for them all. As Neva’s pregnancy progresses and speculation makes it harder and harder to conceal the truth, Floss wonders if hiding her own truth is ultimately more harmful than telling it. Will these women reveal their secrets and deal with the inevitable consequences? Or are some secrets best kept hidden?

The Adventures of Supermom®Penguin Christmas Classics honor the power of literature to keep on giving through the ages. The five volumes in the series are not only our most beloved Christmas tales; they also have given us much of what we love about the holiday itself. A CHRISTMAS CAROL revived in Victorian England such Christmas hallmarks as the Christmas tree, holiday cards, and caroling. The Yuletide yarns of Anthony Trollope popularized throughout the British Empire and around the world the trappings of Christmas in London. The holiday tales of Louisa May Alcott shaped the ideal of an American Christmas. THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS brought forth some of our earliest Christmas traditions as passed down through folk tales. And THE NUTCRACKER inspired the most famous ballet in history, one seen by millions in the twilight of every year.

Beautifully designed—with foil-stamped jackets, decorative endpapers, and nameplates for personalization—and printed in a small trim size that makes them perfect stocking stuffers, Penguin Christmas Classics embody the spirit of giving that is at the heart of our most time-honored stories about the holiday.

A CHRISTMAS CAROL by Charles Dickens, CHRISTMAS AT THOMPSON HALL: And Other Christmas Stories by Anthony Trollope, A MERRY CHRISTMAS: And Other Christmas Stories by Louisa May Alcott, THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS by Nikolai Gogol, THE NUTCRACKER by E. T. A. Hoffmann.

Maurice's Valises
Help Parents dialogue with their Children about Empathy & Compassion

The Adventures of Supermom®Author J.S. Friedman has created Maurice's Valises, a children's book and app series to address these very issues. Maurice the traveling mouse opens up constructive dialogue between parents/teachers and children in a fun, creative and passionate way. Mr. Friedman also offers children the opportunity to express their feelings of empathy by donating books to children in need, at no cost, through the free app.

Maurice travels the world and gathers many tales and lessons. Mementos of his adventures are packed into a valise, to be pulled out later for evenings of fireside storytelling to his grand nieces and nephews. Respect, understanding, self-esteem, self-reliance, and empathy are some of the topics explored within the Maurice's Valises collection. The stories and app games impart the multicultural teachings of Aesop, Buddha, Christ, Confucius, Einstein, Muhammad, the Talmud, Thoreau, and other sources of universal truth. The lavish illustrations by Chris Beatrice, an award-winning children's book artist, help bring Maurice's adventures to life.
