Salute to Service Dogs!

The first national monument to America's military dogs was dedicated this week at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. So many working dogs have risked everything to fulfill their duty and protect our soldiers and, sadly, many of them were not allowed to return to the U.S. after serving alongside their handlers.

"Inscribed with the words 'Guardians of America's Freedom,' the nine-foot tall bronze statue at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, features four dogs and a handler."image from news.msn.com


In Alison Hart's newest historical fiction novel for middle grade readers, Darling, Mercy Dog of World War I, we follow the story of one such service dog, Darling. Having been volunteered to serve in the British army, Darling is trained to be a mercy dog. She finds wounded soldiers during battle so they can be brought to safety.

Not only is Darling good at what she does, she is also loved by her handler and all the soldiers she works with. This story is, at its heart, a gripping tale of friendship set amidst the harrowing battle fields of World War I.

Having recently wrapped up our blog tour for Darling during National Service Dog Month, military dogs and their handlers have been on our minds lately. We're so glad to see that a memorial statue is now dedicated to preserving the memory of and honoring military working dogs!

Keep an eye out for our interview with Alison Hart later this week!

Life in Outer Space

Welcome to the Life in Outer Space blog tour! 


Sam Kinnison is a geek, and he’s totally fine with that. He has his horror movies, his awesomely nerdy and loyal friends, World of Warcraft, and a stack of screenplays to finish. He stays under the radar and out of reach of the “Vessels of Wank and their various minions” who roam the halls. Life is normal.
When the beautiful Camilla Carter starts at Bowen Lakes Secondary, the school erupts in a flurry of interest over “the new girl” – but Sam couldn’t possibly care less. Soon though, despite the status quo and Sam’s attempts to ignore her, Camilla becomes increasingly part of his life and, stranger still, she likes Star Wars. Weird.
Sam believes that everything he needs to know can be learned from the movies...but now it
looks like he’s been watching the wrong ones.

Where is Baby? How animals hide!

Today we're kicking off a new blog tour for Where is Baby? the newest picture book from Kathryn Galbraith (author of Planting the Wild Garden and Arbor Day Square)!


Babies love to hide - beneath blankets, under tables, and behind chairs. And some babies are found in unexpected places. Like baby deer, who disappear in dappled spring sunlight. Or baby leopards, who scramble high in the African trees. Or baby elephants, who fade behind a forest of legs. But all babies, no matter where they are, can always be found - by their loving parents.
Be sure to check out our stops and enter our giveaway contests!
