“Jenny’s Pennies: A Nantucket Tradition” by Peter Saverine

“Do you believe in mermaids and wishes that come true? Do you believe in lucky days when someone’s watching over you?” So begins this whimsical tale of Nantucket’s tradition of throwing a penny near the Brant Point lighthouse. This inspirational book is filled with colorful illustrations and verse. Meet a mermaid named Jenny who collects the pennies thrown off the ferry by visitors, young and old, as they leave the quaint New England island, hoping to return.

With the help of her seaside friends, Jenny re-scatters the pennies throughout the island to bring good luck to the finders. It’s a great read-aloud that will inspire you to pick up lucky pennies wherever you travel and believe in their magical powers. Purchase at https://etsy.me/34RMUux.

“If You Were Me and Lived In…” Cultural series by Carole P. Roman

As Santa gets ready to make holiday stops to all parts of the globe, it’s never too early to start teaching children about that world around them. In her years as a teacher, parent and grandparent, author Carole P. Roman noticed there were few, if any, books about other cultures for young children. Roman has remedied that with a 22-book series covering cultures in every corner of the world.

Roman knows children love to discover the differences and similarities of other people and places in far-off lands. Tailored to children 3 to 8 years old, her writing is simple but does not talk down to youngsters. Get on board and discover the world through the eyes of a young person.
