Though the end of your life may be near, it doesn't mean you have to stop living After being diagnosed in her early thirties with terminal breast cancer, Heather McManamy felt like her life was crumbling. Her "normal" vanished—and was replaced with multiple surgeries and dozens of chemo treatments that could briefly extend her life, but would not prevent her inevitable death. With an effervescent spirit and a new perspective, Heather started to live each day as if it were her last. She learned to soak in the moment, appreciate the beauty around her, and celebrate her blessings. She also pondered her daughter's future journey without her mother—and gracefully prepared for it. Heather began to write greeting cards to Brianna. Cards for her first day of school, her sixteenth birthday, her wedding day. Cards for when things were going right and when they were going wrong. Cards for when Brianna would need her mother—whether in five years or in fifty years-and Heather wouldn't be able to be there for her. Cards for Brianna is the story of one mother's powerful love for her young daughter and Heather's unmatched experiences, laced with laughter and charm, are a reminder to never take a single day for granted.

Molly wasn’t looking to have a pet. She prefers climbing trees, eating peanut butter, playing with her dolls, and having breakfast with the birds. But when her little brother thinks he hears a monster in the backyard, everything changes…including friendships. Now, Molly’s adventure with an avian friend leads not only to some discoveries about herself but also to standing in the kitchen sink, having a tea party in a tree house, holding a live bird in her hands, singing into a walkie-talkie, and eating “Oatmeal Mollerino.” She even manages to finally decide on her absolutely, positively most favorite color in the whole wide world—thanks to her special new friend. Breakfast With The Birds is a delight! Long before I became a professional writer myself, I had a career in children’s book publishing. But I must admit … I would never be able to write for kids with the skill that Jack G Hyman so clearly possesses. This is an utterly charming read that children will enjoy experiencing and learning from, over and over. Highly recommended! -Mike Greenly, Award-winning Lyricist, Author, Journalist, Speechwriter
