1. Just Say 'YOLO!' (Because You Only Live Once!) - Penelope Dyan

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 9.20  - Click book title for availability and further details

We all need to follow our own dreams, but sometimes we let things get in the way. We seem to get distracted by what others may say to discourage us, and then we never become all that we can be. What a kid needs to remember is we are all different, and we all have different dreams; and what we need to do is stop worrying about what other people are doing and then get on with doing our 'own things!' This book addresses two important social concepts: 1) Do not say bad things about another person; and 2) When someone says bad things about you, turn the other cheek and walk away! (See if you can figure out why as you read this book!) Written and illustrated by award winning author, attorney and former teacher, Penelope Dyan, this 'learn to read' book filled with word repetition, word recognition and rhyme, is meant to stir the imagination! The extra-large print is made for young eyes, and the book size is perfect for little hands. To make the learning experience even more fun, there is a free music video on the Bellissimavideo YouTube channel that goes right along with this book! So have fun learning, because if you don't have fun learning, you will not love to learn!

2. Joe's Politicians (Large Print 16pt) - Mendelson Joe

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Among many things, Mendelson Joe is a political activist. And he's a painter. So it was inevitable that he would express his activism through a series of portraits of politicians. Here we have George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Bill Clinton Henry Kissinger,, Jean Chr tien, Brian Mulroney, Stephen Harper, Stockwell Day, Preston Manning, Mike Harris, Ernie Eves, and others. As Mendelson Joe describes, these portraits embody mostly figments of his imagination. All but three subjects came from impressions synthesized from observing these glib charmers during their numerous appearances on television. The three exceptions (Barbara Hall, Carolyn Parrish, and Richard Thomas) all sat for him at his request. The portraits are not editorial cartoons; they're expressions like Edvard Munch's ''Scream.'' His disdain for most of his subjects is far from hidden and yet occasionally, if you look closely, one can spot a glimmer of hope that the subject might have a heart. These politicians are shaping our future. As such, they require our scrutiny and commentary. Only if we stay engaged, as Mendelson Joe makes clear, can our democratic system work.

7. Jose Mourino Simply The Best: (Large Print 16pt) - Harry Harris

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In 2004, Chelsea's billionaire owner, Roman Abramovich, needed the best manager money could buy, a proven champion, to capture the trophies his outlay on the team demanded. His choice was, of course, the irrepressible Jose Mourinho. Bringing his monumental self - belief and proven track record - not to mention a touch of elan - to the Premiership, Mourinho smashed the stranglehold that Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger held over English football's top prizes. Uniting Abramovich's impressive transfer outlay with his meticulous preparation and motivational skills, Mourinho elevated Chelsea to heights their fans had previously only dreamt of, winning the Premiership and Carling Cup double. Having delivered Chelsea's first top - flight domestic title in 50 years, Mourinho was never likely to rest on his laurels. His recruitment of the finest players in world football continued over the following two seasons, with the likes of Ashley Cole and Michael Essien bolstering the ranks, and inevitable success came in the shape of back - to - back championships in the second season, and a potential cup double in his third. It hasn't all been smooth sailing for The Blues' self - appointed 'Special One'. Critics have cited Mourinho's clear advantages in the transfer market, but it is his phenomenal manmanagement skills that have turned Chelsea from also - rans into the team everyone wants to beat. The unconditional loyalty of his players - most notably John Terry and Frank Lampard - is proof of the Mourinho effect. His unabashed confidence and will to win has seen him clash with rival managers, referees and other players alike; and his position as manager has not always seemed secure. But one thing is sure of Jose Mourinho; confident, eloquent, dapper in his attire and debonair to the core, English football would be a far less interesting sport without him. ''Jose Mourinho - Simply the Best'' is a celebration of his three years with The Blues.

11. Juan Criollo - Carlos Loveira

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 18.61  - Click book title for availability and further details

There are three situations in which you may find yourself planning a funeral and hence reading this book: • A loved one has passed away suddenly; • A loved one has been diagnosed as terminally ill; • You wish to pre-plan your own funeral. Despite the fact that human beings have a 100% mortality rate, most people in Ireland act as if even talking about end-of-life planning causes people to die! A funeral is both a beginning and an ending, where the end symbolises that the journey from birth to death has been completed and the beginning symbolises the recovery and renewal process for the loved ones still living. The main purpose of this book is to encourage conversation about death, dying, funerals and loss in Ireland today and, hopefully, to open your minds to the endless possibilities there are when it comes to funerals. It aims to inspire independent individuals to celebrate and take control of the last memory they will leave loved ones.

When to seek shelter, when not. He has grown up directing himself with the wind and the shadows. 'Don't be afraid, Jakob,' his father has told him, his voice weak and wavering. 'See the colours, my boy,' he has whispered. So he does. On and on, Jakob runs.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 26.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

When the most hated landlord in San Francisco takes an unexpected jump off the roof of his own building, it isn't too hard to find suspects. But the police want to call it a suicide, since both the Mayor and press are complaining about the dismal closure rate for homicide investigations. But ex-cop Sam McGowan knows it was murder. He also knows that anyone living on the top floor of the building should be a suspect, including himself. So Sam decides to get to know his neighbors: A lonely jazz singer more than willing to confess to any crime, past or present; Two young women paying for graduate school by operating a website that reveals a lot more than their SAT scores; The B-movie producer with a swollen prostate and shrinking bank balance; And the brothers at the end of the hall, who just quit their day jobs to sell marijuana for the Mexican mob. The only thing they have in common is a general agreement that their dead landlord got what he deserved - and that one of them is probably responsible. As more bodies surface and alliances shift, Sam finds himself jumping back and forth between his old life as a cop and his new one as a murder suspect, unable to decide where he really belongs....Tim Maleeny is the Macavity Award-winning author of Stealing the Dragon, a novel Lee Child called "a perfect thriller debut," Beating the Babushka, and, most recently, Greasing the Piñata. Jump is his new standalone thriller. Maleeny lives and writes in San Francisco.

17. Jessie Mei Mei A Girl from a World Where No Games Are Played: A Girl from a World Where No Games Are Played (Large Print 16pt) - Stuart Neal and Sharon Guest

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 23.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The Chinese call it 'the red threads of destiny'...when a child is born, invisible red threads spring from the infant's body and connect it to those who will be important in that child's life. Jia-Mei was the child Sharon Guest and Stuart Neal had always wanted and, following a protracted adoption process, they excitedly travelled to China to collect her from a Chinese orphanage. Friends and family affectionately called her Jessie Mei Mei and welcomed her to a new life in Australia. Jessie was the perfect eighteen-month-old child - gregarious and funny and easy to love. But, from the beginning, Sharon, in that way that parents do, suspected something wasn't quite right about Jessie. She was too serious and immobile and learned quite slowly. When they adopt Bi Bi, another Chinese baby, Jessie's behaviour worries them so much that they seek medical help only to hear what no parent is ever prepared to hear - their beautiful daughter has a degenerative condition that means she will be lucky to see her twelfth birthday. What happens next is the all too common and shocking story of how a country as rich as ours shamefully fails to provide assistance to families in need. The bureaucratic silliness of government departments and their systemic inadequacy in supporting high needs children and adults leads to extreme actions on the part of their exhausted families. Jessie Mei Mei will break your heart with its frank, honest and surprisingly funny account of how one family managed. But in the end it is a story about kindness and the power of love to overcome all.

20. Just Eat (Large Print) - Jeremiah Hensley

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 4.96  - Click book title for availability and further details

Jeremiah Hensley was born in New Orleans, on the west bank side of the Mississippi River. He is the author of two books: "Samarobryn: An Unbelievable Dialogue"and"The 3rd Diversion: What do They Really Believe?" While most of his books deal with the spiritual aspects of life, he felt compelled to write his new book "Just Eat: What the Diet Industry Doesn't Want You to Know" He felt compelled because, after his sister died from obesity related causes, and realizing that he was headed in the same direction as his sister, he knew that he had to act; and act fast. After realizing that nine out of ten diet plans failed, he knew that in order to lose weight that he could not do it by dieting. He then developed a concept for losing weight that goes in direct opposition to most diet plans. He developed a concept for losing weight that is based on eating instead of dieting. If his concept for losing weight ever catches on, the billion dollar diet industry will be a thing of the past. This is the reason why they do not want you to know, the concepts that he has written about in his book.
