The English Roses is a story of rivalry and friendship among schoolgirls in contemporary London. Four little girls–Nicole, Amy, Charlotte, and Grace–are eleven years old and the very best of friends. They have sleepovers, picnics and ice-skating parties that exclude Binah, a beautiful girl whose seemingly perfect life makes them “green with envy.” However, when a feisty, pumpernickel-loving fairy godmother takes them on a magical journey, they learn to their great surprise that Binah’s life is not nearly as enviable as it had seemed. The English Roses is an inspiring story about the importance of compassion and the rewards of friendship.
Inspired by a story about the damage than can be caused by spreading rumours about what one sees rather than by seeking truth, credited to Baal Shem Tov – “Master of the Good Name.”
Money can’t buy love and being the wealthiest person in the world doesn’t guarantee happiness.Lotsa de Casha is the richest — and most miserable — man in the world. No matter how colossal his castles, how fast his horses, nor how big his sandwiches, he remains a gloomy old sourpuss — until he embarks on a fantastic adventure that leads him to the discovery of life’s greatest treasure…
What is the secret to happiness? Read Lotsa’s story and find out….
Abdi is a little boy who has been given a very big task. He is to deliver the most precious necklace in the world — made by Eli, his teacher and a master jeweler — to the queen. Along the way he is robbed in the desert, thrown in a dungeon, and has a surprising encounter with a snake. But no matter what obstacles he faces, Abdi never gives up hope, guided by Eli’s wisdom that everything that happens in life is for the best.
This book was inspired by the Baal Shem Tov, a great teacher who lived in the Ukraine in the 18th century.
It is a story about how all of us have the ability to unlock the gates of heaven–no matter how unworthy we think we are. For when we go against out selfish natures, we make miracles happen, in our lives and in the lives of others.
We must never forget that hidden behind a large amount of darkness is a large amount of light.
