Did you read Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder? Brother, I'm Dying is another powerful book about Haiti and a close Haitian family. Written with sincere emotion, this book will transport you to an unbelievable destination. Danticat's magic is to give you emotion without bathos, pain without self-pity, and courageously lead you through despairing situations. By the end you are pinching yourself because you are amazed to find that you are filled with hope. You will want to reread the book to figure out how she did it!   Get this book!

How would you like to read about a Siamese cat who thinks he is a Chihauha? Well you can read about Skippyjon Jones. He is a superhero of sorts who saves a group of Chihauha's from all kinds of misadventures. These come as books with a CD that are read by the author. Adults and children will enjoy these fun books. The illustrations are great too.  Get this book!
