Kathryn Ross takes us to an enchanted land where adventure meets learning. The characters in this magical world captivate young imaginations and speak to hearts of all ages. Who can’t relate to Bugaboo’s haste to bypass seemingly trivial stages of life? Full of practical application, Bugaboo’s journey opens up space for parents to dialogue with children about the values they live and grow by.

Beautifully illustrated with a captivating story, this is more than a picture book. Kathryn Ross and Noah Berge provide a fresh perspective of traditional values and life lessons that will spark thoughtful discussion from toddlers to grandparents. You and your family will want to bask in these pages, a creative combination of poetry and story. Who knew that revisiting Old MacDonald’s Farm may very well lead to “a legacy of beauty, truth, and right you’ll want to pursue with all your might”?

Clementine Jones and the Skunk Stink

As a pastor’s wife, children’s church leader and former home school mom of fifteen years, I am VERY impressed with Clementine Jones and the Skunk Stink in the new Drama and Derring-Do Books by Ed and Kathryn Ross. From the entertaining play to the lesson to the game to the song, it is well put-together, clever, fun, and scripturally sound. I will recommend it to EVERYONE!
