Maxine’s New Job
Maxine Hill is an inquisitive fourth grade student who loves to read, work crossword puzzles, visit her best friend, Amanda Grayson, and play with her cat, Amos. Maxine is also on a quest to find out why her neighbor, Mrs. Sullivan, is acting so weird. Mrs. Sullivan is always outside sitting on the front porch with her two rescue dogs or working in her flower bed. However, she seems to get very nervous when Maxine talks to her about everything. What is going on with this lady? Is she a robot spy? Is she an alien? Is she working for the CIA?
Follow Maxine Hill as she solves the case of the strange neighbor! Maxine’s New Job will be presented at Book Expo America, Javits Center, New York, NY, May 30 – June 1, 2018. Maxine’s New Job is available at Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
Carver Park by Dr. Lynda J. Mubarak
CARVER PARK gives us a view into the life of one child who found that regardless of society’s circumstances the persons in our lives provide us with the knowledge and support needed to learn, survive and progress.
Shorty and The Sullivans
Shorty and The Sullivans is a story about empathy, sympathy and compassion. It is also a story about friendship and surprises. It reminds us to be careful when making judgements based on outside appearances. The Shorty story was created to teach young children to gather all the facts before making a decision about an event, person, place, thing or circumstances. Lastly, sometimes the first impression is the wrong impression!
Stations by Dr. Lynda J. Mubarak
STATIONS is a collection of articles created with the tenured employee, new worker, returning worker, or family next door in mind. The author addresses everyday circumstances with simple discussions to give you pause as you reflect on your personal or family lifestyle, prepare your children for future employment, rebrand your resume, or review your career options.
Where did you get the name STATIONS?
My grandmother loved to bake pastry. When I was about six years old I sat at her little kitchen table and watched her mix the ingredients for another cake and she began talking about life and people. She said, “Everyone is at a different station in life. The stations are never equal. They may be alike in some ways, but they are never exactly the same for any of us.
Don’t ever compare your station to another person’s. Some stations are large, some are small, and you will experience both, but your situation belongs to you, and you only. You cannot move on until you finish your station assignment(s). No one can take your place and vice versa. There are no trade offs. Your life journey is your own and you will have to take care of your stations as you pass through them. One last thing Lynda, never laugh at another person’s station. Who knows what’s in store for you tomorrow.”
