America’s Black Founders: Revolutionary Heroes and Early Leaders
by Nancy I. Sanders

America’s Black Founders helped build a nation that would become one of the most influential countries in the world. Even though many traditional history books have been silent concerning the important contributions and accomplishments of African Americans during the founding of the nation, America’s Black Founders were not silent. Through the petitions they wrote, the sermons they preached, the literature they published, the churches they built, and the organizations they formed, African Americans influenced the birth of a new nation in powerful and far-reaching ways. Visit the book’s website at America’s Black Founders.

Princess Batilda
by Sharon K. Riddle and Nancy I. Sanders
Illustrated by Megan E. Mendoza

A topsy-turvy kingdom turns right-side up when Princess Batilda discovers a priceless treasure. Come and see the delightful things that can happen to a princess who learns to say, “I’m sorry.” Coming summer 2009.

Smile after smile awaits the reader in this picture book, from watching a princess you can’t help love because of all the chaos she causes throughout the castle, to her “coming of age” when she realizes the importance of that very special word, “Sorry.” Neither the king nor queen nor princes from nearby kingdoms could teach her that, only the boy in the background who knew her worth. A darling story, well worth reading. –Shirley Shibley, contributor to Clubhouse, Bread for God’s Children, and other periodicals.

The fun-filled text and delightful illustrations will help readers of Princess Batilda understand, in a captivating way, why it’s so very important to say “I’m sorry.” The surprise ending is touching. A great gift for a young child. –Marjorie Flathers, frequent contributor to the Kids’ Reading Room page in the Los Angeles Times and many other publications

Beguiling artwork and a sure-fire plot make Princess Batilda a winner. Young readers will appreciate this simple story that tells a not-so-simple truth. –Marilyn Donahue, recipient of the Chariot Book Award for The Crooked Gate (David C. Cook)

Princess Batilda is always causing havoc in the kingdom but she refuses to say, “I’m sorry.” This delightful tale of the consequences of never saying you’re sorry will charm child and parent alike. The unexpected twist at the end of the story makes it even more delightful. –Gloria McQueen Stockstill, author of four board books including The Basket in the River, To the Town of Bethlehem, The Blind Man by the Road, and Jesus Rose on Easter Morn.

Princess Batilda is a charming story on the importance of saying “I’m sorry” and the faithfulness of true friendship. Told with tenderness, this tale is sure to be a favorite for the little princesses and princes we cherish so much. –Veronica Walsh, illustrator for Too Many Visitors for One Little House
