A Girl Named Dan – PDF – Ten-year-old Dandi (affectionately called “Dan” by family and friends) lives and breathes baseball. She may not be a fence buster but she can “hit ‘em where they ain’t” in the neighborhood pick-up games. The boys know she’s a contender. And there’s no bigger fan of the 1961 Kansas City A’s. So when Charlie Finley, the A’s new owner, announces an essay contest to get batboys, there’s no doubt Dandi will enter the contest.
Dandi not only enters the contest–her essay wins! However, her joy is short-lived when the contest officials enforce the For Boys Only rule. Long before the boundary-breaking ruling of Title IX, young women across the country used grit and determination to prove that barriers of gender have no place on a level playing field. Dandi Daley Mackall’s true-life story gives voice and testament to the spirit of these young sports pioneers.
A Glorious Angel Show – ePUB/MOBI – Beautiful and amazing dual art elements and center spread pop up tell the story of Christ’s birth on earth, and shows the angels’ preparation in heaven.
Off to Plymouth Rock – ePUB/MOBI – Told with the whimsical verse of Dandi Mackall, children will love to hear the story of the Pilgrims’ voyage and the Native Americans’ guidance that culminated in the first Thanksgiving.
