By Paulet Facey

  • ASIN: B07N2KKQ2V


The Hurricane centers around two happy children who want to experience the excitement of a storm.

"My Family's Feet"


My Family's Feet was published by XLIBRIS in July of 2012, and is told from the narrator's point of view. In the story, the narrator has been away in New York City for some time. She's progressing well, but she misses her family and the familiar surroundings.

In order to make connections, she starts to reminisce on the family members' feet. This practice has allowed her to make even deeper connections with her farm, reflecting on the fruits and vegetables. She also remembers pleasant times with her grandmother and grandfather.

Feet can signify specific periods, and they can awaken memories. The memorable occasion with her grandmother in the cellar is brought back to life as a result of her father's feet. The afternoon's lesson learning parallel lines, as well as her earliest connection with books are recounted because of Lisa-Joy's feet. Christmas is brought to life because of the Matthew-John's pinky toe. The narrators believes feet are even more significant as they show the uniqueness of each family member.

  • Pages: 24
  • Size: 8.5x11

How Loney the Honey Badger Got Its Name shows how a ferocious badger, Loney, intimidates the animals of two forests; this causes Loney to be led to a beehive where he plunders the honeycombs, devours the royal jelly, and endangers the life of the queen, along with the entire forests. The badger’s behavior is repudiated by all the animals and the environment; this causes the badger to ultimately retreat to its set in shame. The account contains excellent story elements—a great setting and an exciting plot, combined with examples of affixes, figures of speech, homographs, homophones, and homonyms. The story provides an avenue for a compare/contrast activity of the badger with other animals. This is a compelling story for young readers!
