Little Gray’s Great Migration By Marta Lindsey Illustrated By Andrea Gabriel


From debut author Marta Lindsey, Little Gray’s Great Migration is inspired by seasons of gray whales “showing off” as they traveled thousands of miles. For Little Gray, the lagoon is a happy place where he can demonstrate his talents for the visitors that  come in boats each day. Mama feeds Little Gray and he has no worries until she announces that they must swim to a new special sea. Reluctantly Little Gray begins the long swim, and only after falling behind does he realize that Mama needs his help to make it to the new sea, and he must persevere.

A wonderful story for children in grades K-4. I love how children can learn about the Gray Whale’s migration. The For Creative Minds section includes: Whale Surfacing, Migration Map and Whale Food.

You can find at Arbordale Publishing.

Your Next Chapter by Manny Scott Proven Methods Offer Hope To Lost Or Forgotten Kids That They Can Achieve Their Dream Life

download (1)

Passionate about youth, Manny Scott spends over six months of the year on the road, talking to educators and inspiring young adults to realize their true potential. His new book, Your Next Chapter: How to Turn the Page and Create the Life of Your Dreams, provides the necessary tools to help anyone begin their journey of transformation from a life with no hope to a life filled with success!

Scott applies the principles in his book to those in schools and jails around the nation who have been labeled ‘unreachable’ and ‘unteachable,’ with remarkable results, and this moving testimonial is evidence of how he saves lives: “Mr. Scott, I spent almost 45 minutes to an hour online looking up how to kill myself … I almost ended my life. When you came and you gave that speech, I was crying inside. Because I knew then and still know now that my life has meaning. I am important and I do deserve to live.”

Kids listen because they know Manny Scott has truly “walked the talk.” By age 14 he had dropped out of school and at 17 he had already lived in 26 places. After his best friend was brutally murdered and sensing that the end of his own life was near, he sat on a park bench one day and contemplated the deep despair and anger in his soul. Then a total stranger sat down beside him and connected with him, and through his encouragement Manny was inspired to create a new life for himself with a totally different outcome. That day, he turned the page and began a new chapter in his life. Today, this successful entrepreneur is recognized as one of our nation’s most effective speakers.

Manny’s remarkable story was featured in part in the 2007 hit movie, Freedom Writers. He has energized and inspired over a million leaders, educators, volunteers and students, and easily connects with any audience – from inner-city youth to business executives.

In 2007, Manny Scott founded Ink International, Inc., an educational consulting team that is preventing thousands of suicides, raising student achievement, and improving teacher effectiveness. He is a Ph.D. student and private pilot. Happily married and a doting father of three, Manny resides in Georgia. For more information, please visit:
