1.”How To Stay Sane in an Age of Division” (by Elif Şafak) – is a novel by one of the most widely read contemporary authors. Our age is an age of contagious anxiety. We feel overwhelmed by the events around us, by injustice, by suffering, by an endless sense of crisis. How then can we nurture the parts of ourselves that hope, trust, and believe in something better? And how can we stay sane in times of division? Author Shafak gives us a small but powerful manifesto to help us stay in mind in this age of division. We believe this is why this title is one of the most sought after literary titles.

2.”The Wild Symphony” (by Dan Brown) – is an interactive picture book that represents a special reading experience. It introduces the youngest readers to the world of literature.
In the picture book, the playful Mestro Miš holds the baton in his hands. He takes readers to visit his animal friends (cheetah, kangaroo, elephants and blue whales). Each beautifully illustrated page is dedicated to one animal. It offers a piece of life wisdom. These pieces will inspire conversations about compassion, patience, respect and self-confidence, and attention, a comfortable life and community. Susan Batori’s illustrations are imbued with humor adapted to children. For curious readers of all ages, additional clues and puzzles are hidden in the colorful backgrounds.
