Happy to add Talee and the Fallen Object to the list of fantasy/adventure books for children.



Talee and the Fallen Object is a coloring book of action scenes that tells a fantasy/adventure story. Talee, a girl who lives on the gas planet Gala has her curiosity piqued when she sees an object fall from the backpack of a mail flyer and journeys out to see what it is.

Labyrinth's Door  - Anyia "Dream of a Warrior"



The first edition of Labyrinth’s Door is a story of a young girl, Anyia, whose dream of becoming a Nagoran Warrior is infused with adventure and danger. Running from her duties as a Yora, she dares to break tradition to follow her own dream, during a time when Empress Zarina threatens the magic treaty that protects her village.

The Tales of Teacups


This is a fantasy book for girls 8 years and up, that includes a recipe section in the rear of the book.


The Tales of Teacups is an imaginative story about a little girl, Keisha, who discovers a collection of teacups from around the world in her mother’s cupboard.  Keisha takes three cups out of the cabinet and sets them on the kitchen table for her own little tea party.  The daydreamer makes believe they come alive and tell her of their journeys. 


First Ms. Bei (æ¯) tells her about how she has Chinese Black Tea (Hei Cha 黑茶) with Mrs. Chen and Shelly in Taiwan.  Next, Ms. Ocha explains Omiai, the Japanese tea ceremony for arranged marriages in Japan, and how parents seek a Nakodo ãªã“ã© or Matchmaker (媒酌人) to find a suitable husband for their daughters. 


Furtuna, a teacup belonging to the African Heritage Collection, explains to Keisha their shared African ancestry and then tells Keisha about Shahi, the Tigrinya word for tea (a spice tea served in Eritrea, East Africa).

Readers will have an enjoyable teatime with Keisha and her mother, and are encouraged to share intimate moments between friends. 


Tea is not just for the English. It is a universal tradition for everyone to enjoy!

I just came across your club. I commend you in this! I have three beautiful young girls and I long to find more books with attractive/positive images and stories to help build their self worth. Living in the suburbs, its not easy connecting with other African Americans in my community. Many don't realize self hatred is the worst hatred.I am beautiful in and out, and I love my PPL !!!!

I am joining this group because I am ALWAYS looking for positive fiction books for my son (age 11) to read. As we come into the summer months, I want him to read more not just for school. I also read the books myself so we can discuss them.  Here is one I have found that he read when he was younger.

Nikki Grimes is a great author and her books are on the Accelerated Reader program if this is apart of your child's curriculum. I will keep looking and keep posting!
