Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations

Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations

A generation stands on the brink of a "rebelution."

"Most people don't expect you to understand what we're going to tell you in this book. And even if you understand, they don't expect you to care. And even if you care, they don't expect you to do anything about it. And even if you do something about it, they don't expect it to last. We do." – Alex and Brett

Do Hard Things is the Harris twins' revolutionary message in its purest and most compelling form, giving readers a tangible glimpse of what is possible for teens who actively resist cultural lies that limit their potential.

Combating the idea of adolescence as a vacation from responsibility, the authors weave together biblical insights, history, and modern examples to redefine the teen years as the launching pad of life.  Then they map out five powerful ways teens can respond for personal and social change.

Written by teens for teens, Do Hard Things is packed with humorous personal anecdotes, practical examples, and stories of real-life rebelutionaries in action. This rallying cry from the heart of an already-happening teen revolution challenges a generation to lay claim to a brighter future, starting today.

Now includes:
-- A new introduction from the authors, “Looking Back, Looking Ahead”
-- Questions (and Stories) To Get You Started
-- A list of 100 Hard Things to help inspire you
-- A study guide for personal or group use

Space Case (Moon Base Alpha)

Space Case (Moon Base Alpha)

It’s a murder mystery on the moon in this humorous and suspenseful space adventure from the author of Belly Up and Spy School that The New York Times Book Review called “a delightful and brilliantly constructed middle grade thriller.”

Like his fellow lunarnauts—otherwise known as Moonies—living on Moon Base Alpha, twelve-year-old Dashiell Gibson is famous the world over for being one of the first humans to live on the moon.

And he’s bored out of his mind. Kids aren’t allowed on the lunar surface, meaning they’re trapped inside the tiny moon base with next to nothing to occupy their time—and the only other kid Dash’s age spends all his time hooked into virtual reality games.

Then Moon Base Alpha’s top scientist turns up dead. Dash senses there’s foul play afoot, but no one believes him. Everyone agrees Dr. Holtz went onto the lunar surface without his helmet properly affixed, simple as that. But Dr. Holtz was on the verge of an important new discovery, Dash finds out, and it’s a secret that could change everything for the Moonies—a secret someone just might kill to keep...

The Adventures of Lulu

The Adventures of Lulu

Three Stories to Help Build Self Esteem and courage in Children:

Lulu and the Ant: a Message of Love
Lulu and Willy the Duck: Learning Mirror work
Lulu and the Dark: Conquering Fears

These three stories were written to help today's child grow up with a strong sense of self-esteem and courage. As adults, we sometimes forget that children have many more issues to deal with than we did when we were their age. They're constantly being put into the position of making choices, and are steadily being bombarded with news about the critical state of the world.

How children handle these challenges is a direct reflection of how they truly feel about themselves. The more a child loves and respects him-or herself, the easier it will be to make the right choices.

As parents, it's important that we instill in our children a sense of Independence, power, and the knowledge that they can make a difference in the outcome of today's world.

It's Not what You've Got

It's Not what You've Got

Internationally renowned author Wayne Dyer continues his series of inspirational works for children as he offers a positive, spiritual approach to the meaning of money for kids. It's Not What You've Got addresses the topics of money and abundance, with the understanding that children's earliest thoughts and perceptions about money will last throughout their lives. The concepts presented in this beautifully illustrated book include: Money does not define who you are; it doesn't matter what others have, and abundance comes in many forms.

No Excuses

No Excuses

In his fourth book for children, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer focuses on the topic of excuses and how they can do more harm than we realize. The book demonstrates how excuses go far beyond "my dog ate my homework," and can actually become words that prevent your child from reaching his or her potential.

Illustrated once again by Stacy Heller Budnick, The book follows a boy with a seemingly impossible dream who almost lets excuses ("I'm not smart enough" . . . "It's too hard," and so on) get in his way.
He discovers, as will your child, that by following a few simple ideas and eliminating excuses . . . anything is possible!
