On the shores of Long Island Sound, near the Connecticut River, lived a young boy who was so fascinated with the American Bald Eagles that fished in the waters near his home, he spent every free moment he had watching them. Everything about the bald eagles fascinated Jason, from the way they flew in the sky to the way they hunted for food. Even the way they built such huge nests grabbed his attention. No other bird flew like the bald eagles. To ten year old Jason, the bald eagle was awe-inspiring. No other bird species commanded such respect when in flight mode. The eagle's every movement was graceful and regal, even to the way it turned its head to look at him, and it did look at him as he gazed at it through his binoculars.

Ten, almost eleven, year old Kacie went on a no dinner strike when her parents refused to prepare her favorite meal, Chicken and Dumplings. She had tried tears, tantrums, being a goody two-shoes, but nothing worked. So now, she has resorted to this dinner strike.
After two days on the strike, she would have given up already had it not been for the time she spends on the telephone with her best friend, Holly. Holly gave her encouragement which kept her going. She didn't know what she would have done without Holly. She shared everything with her. They were inseparable, that is until a new boy, Paul, moved into the neighborhood and began attending their school. Now Holly had no time for her, she was more interested in talking with Paul.

Written in simple, engaging rhyme, this book takes an educational look into how frequent communication with your child - can help him or her avoid some of the pitfalls waiting to ensnare him/her in a big way. Through stunning illustrations, the child will read along with his or her parent about being safe, staying safe, lean what is good touch and bad touch, learn about how important it is to be protected at all times, to discussing with mom and or dad, about any situation in which the child feels uncomfortable or unsafe.
