Why Alligators Don't Have Wings
by Martin Camp
Episode 3
Author Martin Camp says it is "impossible to count the times this request of telling a story to my children has evolved into opening the crystalline doors of imagination as we wander on fantastic journeys. We find ourselves exploring the dreams and questions I have always had circling in my mind just below the level of all those things one thinks about to function as a productive adult in today's world. Fantasy and science fiction provide a wondrous freedom to explore worlds where things don't have to be as they are on terra firm, where everything we take for granted can change like the views in a slowly-turning kaleidoscope. I love to play with my children in the new worlds we visit."
This delightful tale takes us into the world of alligators and princes and dragons...Oh, my! Grab a cup of tea and enjoy this one!

My Grandma Has Alzheimer's - Episode 2

My Grandma Has Alzheimer's is a poignant view of a sweet grandma who has the debilitating disease called Alzheimer's as experienced and told by her grandchild. The book employs a sense of gentle humor and facts from the life's journey of one such grandma - Betty Rae. The hope of the author is that others will be better prepared to endure and deal with this "long goodbye" to their loved one by reading and interacting with the book. The pictures are by an amazing artist in England. Joann Sands graciously consented to be a part of this project when first approached and the tone and design of her art compliments the issue of Alzheimer's - busy, detailed, and sometimes quite confusing. The purchase of this book will allow a continuation of the program entitled MASABI, which allows art therapists to provide free and low-cost art therapy counseling to individuals and groups in the Northwest USA.

Turtle's True Friends - Episode 1
Internationally renowned American storyteller, writer, speaker, and educator Dr. Johnny Lake has been on the forefront of battles against social injustice all his life. As the grandson of Southern Black slaves and cotton pickers, this self-confessed “knucklehead” heard amazing stories from his grandparents, developing a keen sense of justice and equality, or the lack thereof, early on. Further inspired by African-American writers and civil leaders as diverse as Frederick Douglass and Malcolm X, his life’s work has focused on raising awareness and teaching about issues of discrimination, racism, the equality of men and women, the plight of the poor and marginalized in daily life, and, lately, bullying.
