Summer Reading for Adolescent Boys

By James Patterson
Little, Brown & Co.
272 pages

The greatest superpower of all isn't to be part spider, part man, or to cast magic spells.  The greatest power is to create.

Daniel X has that power.

Daniel's secret abilities- like being able to manipulate objects and animals with his mind or to recreate himself in any shape he chooses- have helped him survive.  Daniel does not have a normal life.  He is the protector of the earth, the Alien Hunter, with a mission beyond anyone's imagining!

Adolescent boys will not be able to put this action packed book down!  For more information on Daniel X, visit

I Have Dyslexia. What Does That Mean?

My name is Delaney.  I have dyslexia.  That means that my brain works differently than other kids' brains.

Presenting pg. 1 of  I Have Dyslexia.  What Does That Mean?  a children's book co-authored by Shelley Ball-Dannenberg and her 8 year-old daughter, Delaney.  The book is written from the perspective of a child with dyslexia.  It is aimed at giving children with this language-based learning disability their own voice. After reading the book, children, parents, and teachers will better understand dyslexia and what life is like for a child who has the disorder.  

The beautiful watercolor illustrations are being created by Erika Jones.  To see more of Erika's work, click here.
