This debut book by Baltimore City firefighter, Frank Garland, asks the question, “Why does Santa Claus say, “Ho, Ho, Ho?”
Is it the cold wind at the North Pole or the Candy Canes on the tree or something else? Who else knows? Rudolph? The Snowman? Will they tell?
Written as a poem to entertain his family and friends, Mr. Garland’s delightful poem has been transformed into an eye-catching and engaging picture book.
Grab a hot chocolate, put a child on your lap, and find out why Santa says, “Ho, Ho, Ho.”
No one calls the police to share good news like a new grandbaby or home teams win. They call when things are wrong or have gone bad and are really dangerous. In a city as confined and densely populated and politically important as Washington, DC, the Metropolitan Police get called a lot.
From 1972 to 1995, Marco Kittrell responded to those calls. DC Police Stories puts down on paper the police memories that LT Kittrell, MPDC (ret) would rather forget, but can’t, like his year as a 17 year old cadet when he helped quell a prison riot, lost a police mentor to murder, and witnessed a police officer drop to the station floor and die of a heart attack.
In DC Police Stories Kittrell gives a vivid first person account of catching criminals, stopping crime, and responding to the depravity of mankind in Southeast, Washington, DC. Only veteran officers fully grasp the dangers Kittrell faced and understand the motivations that kept him serving. After the glimpses Kittrell gives in DC Police Stories into life in the most dangerous, crime-infested section of the District, readers will just thank God that officers like Kittrell are prepared to serve and ready to respond.
Aunt Louise visits twice a year,
in shoes, bag, and hat to match.
And every time she visits,
she brings the girls,
a very special snack.
But this time she has forgotten it,
or to the girls,
it so seems.
They wonder if they’ll miss the pleasure,
of eating the treats,
of which they’ve dreamed.
Katie Spivey Brewster’s whimsical poetry and Mary Barrow’s endearing illustrations tell the story of the regular visits of Katie’s great aunt while Katie was a child in Wilmington, NC.
