Become the Queen or King of the beach with your very own castle!
Create A Castle kits come with split molds to help you make beautifully detailed structures out of sand (or, when the time comes, snow!). Place your mold where you want to build, fill it up, then pop the latches and pull the mold apart to reveal your stunning new structure. Then use the extra tools to add more decorations.
We have two options of Create A Castle kits: a "Pro" set (pictured) with several molds, tools, and even some lights, and a "Basic" set with just the essentials to get your castle started. Both kits come with a handy mesh carrying bag.
Normal. Who is to say what this word means? For Magda Newman, it was a goal. She wanted her son Nathaniel to be able to play on the playground, swim at the beach, enjoy the moments his friends took for granted. But Nathaniel’s severe Treacher Collins syndrome—a craniofacial condition—meant that other concerns came first. Could he eat without the aid of a gastrointestinal tube? Could he hear? Would he ever be able to breathe effortlessly? But Nathaniel looks at “normal” from a completely different perspective.
I think Normal is really awesome because, it is telling people to be more thankful for what we have because some people don’t have a much as you. I think that having two Jacobs in the book is sometimes a bit confusing. But I love that the book is supporting people with disabilities, facial differences or other medical problems. I like that it is written in Nathaniel’s perspective and also in his mom’s perspective. “Normal” is an outstanding book!

Zoe Washington isn’t sure what to write. What does a girl say to the father she’s never met, hadn’t heard from until his letter arrived on her twelfth birthday, and who’s been in prison for a terrible crime? A crime he says he never committed. Could Marcus really be innocent? Zoe is determined to uncover the truth. Even if it means hiding his letters and her investigation from the rest of her family. Everyone else thinks Zoe’s worrying about doing a good job at her bakery internship and proving to her parents that she’s worthy of auditioning for Food Network’s Kids Bake Challenge. But with bakery confections on one part of her mind, and Marcus’s conviction weighing heavily on the other, this is one recipe Zoe doesn’t know how to balance. The only thing she knows to be true: Everyone lies.
I love this book because, it is very interesting, and you just want to keep on reading it. I like that Zoe loves baking and is good at it, and is determined to get her mom to let her go on kids baking challenge. I think that there should be more clarification with the dad at the end. I like that Zoe is determined and curious to find out more about her dad and his life. Read this astounding book to find more about Zoe’s life as a 12-year-old! This book is awesome!
