The Mysteries at the Vanished Villa: An Isabella and Henry Howard Mystery #1

Twins Isabella and Henry Howard have spent the last few summers at Misenum, Italy, on the Bay of Naples with their parents Carol and David. Misenum is an archaeological site where their parents hope to discover a lost villa that belonged to Pliny the Elder, a Roman statesman and admiral who died during the eruption of Vesuvius in 79AD. The villa has never been located but Carol and David think they have found it. The twins make amazing discoveries of their own; ones that will change the course of the excavation. They think of themselves as “dirt detectives,” but this summer they also become real detectives when they uncover a nefarious plot to steal ancient Roman antiquities. With the help of trusted friends, Guido and Stefano, and their parents, they help the Italian Art Squad capture the crooks and recover the stolen art.

cover

Cute book about kindness for kids in bright and beautiful illustrations will help your children to be mindful to each other and help to show love and respect.

Will Emily dare to help the new girl in the kindergarten, especially when others aren’t?

Charlotte is a new girl in preschool. She has unusual appearance: coppery curls, big wide open eyes, and funny freckles. The other children aren’t sure what to make of her and are not very friendly.

Ben is a pugnacious, mischievous boy.  He has a bright jumping toy that accidentally hits right into Charlotte’s hands & then breaks! Charlotte knows she didn’t break it. But Ben is sure that it is her fault and, clenching his fists, he goes to Charlotte!

Emily is a sweet and very kind girl. Will she be able to help Charlotte, how to dare to be brave and resist the offender?

From children’s author Rachel Jones, this gentle story shows how to respond when a friend needs help.  Rachel provides examples of kindness – empathy, mindfullness, paying attention and confirms that it is not always easy to be kind, particularly when others aren’t. It’s okay to be different!

And colorful illustrations help a child better represent the whole story and tell it in his own way.
