Want to teach your children that following their passions and having a "why not try" attitude are more important than winning? And who couldn't like people-sized red jellybeans that like winter sports? Bobsleigh Jellybeans is a light-hearted story about friendship, teamwork, imagination, and following dreams. Its colourful, vibrant, playful illustrations capture kids' attentions immediately, and are enjoyed by adults with creative imaginations too! The book was inspired by the kindness, determination, and humour of four gentle big men, who became friends with our family in the winter of 2008-2009, as they trained in Whistler with the Canadian Bobsleigh team in the run-up to the 2010 Vancouver Olympic and Paralympic Games. Enjoy sharing a positive message with your children, while you
Uncorked: My year in Provence studying Pétanque, discovering Chagall, drinking Pastis, and mangling French
Will a foreigner assigned to work in Provence be able to gain acceptance from his French townsfolk? Find out, as Paul Shore’s evocative story telling, wry wit, and big heart, inspire and entertain you, as he tells the tale of how he did just that. Shore’s unwavering determination to fit into life in a quaint village, despite having smoke repeatedly blown in face, saw him eventually embraced within the local culture --- at least by a few of his leery French neighbors. Uncorked celebrates the “uncorking” of a few tightly held traditions that are near and dear to hearts of the locals of the Cote d’Azur and Provence.
