Cookies For Dinner by Holly Zarcone

 Meet local author and mom, Holly Zarcone! She has written an adorable children’s book called Cookies For Dinner and we are excited to tell you about it.


 Cookies for Dinner is fun to read with a message that every parent can relate to. Our kids are only young once , let’s live in the moment and if cookies for dinner makes everyone smile than cookies it is! I highly recommend having some homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies on hand when reading this book with your family and maybe instead of a bedtime story red it together when the kids come home from school for an inspirational dinner idea.

Revolutionary Friends by Selene Castrovilla

It’s President’s Day and what better way to celebrate then to read a book written by a Long Island children’s author about one of our founding fathers.

Selene Castrovilla has a passion for history and loves George Washington. This book is a great read for children, teens and adults.

“Any child can use the book Revolutionary Friends as a resource in writing an essay. The story is fact and would be a great reliable resource to assist in their writing.”- Selene Castrovilla


“In the story Revolutionary Friends I talk about the relationship between George Washington and Marquis de Lafayette during the Revolutionary War. Lafayette was from France and when he as 2 years old his father died fighting the war in Germany. Lafayette came from a family of money and when he was 19 years old he decided to move with a cause to America; he wanted to be glorious. Even though the King of France said no, Lafayette built a boat and got a crew and sailed for America to help them during the Revolutionary War. When he arrived to America he stopped in Philadelphia ( where they did not want him at first). Lafayette met with Washington right when the British were about to attack and he instantly thought of him as a son. Washington was not very kind to people and did not form relationships very quickly with people. The only other person he liked as much as Lafayette was Benedict Arnold ( which we know from the history books ends up becoming a traitor). The book continues with a heartwarming story of Washington and Lafayette’s relationship during a significant part of U.S. History the Revolutionary War.”
