Life’s Treasures
It could be the ideal moment to remind children to be kind when times are trying, which is just what Captain Jon and First Mate Sue do in the new picture book, Unexpected Treasures. After Curly Beard and Pirate Fred are rescued from their sinking boat, Jon and Sue teach the grumpy duo about friendship and sharing. Written by Victoria Osteen, wife of Pastor Joel, the book offers a helpful lesson for young and old. Activity and question pages complement the story to help kids reflect about their own lives. Little Simon Inspirations. Ages 3-7. $16.99.

In it, kids can play as Phineas Flynn, Ferb Fletcher, or Agent P, as they build inventions, collect gadgets that give special abilities, and complete mini games and puzzles. It also includes a D-gamer, which provides access to an online community exclusively for Disney gamers that allows players to create a profile, earn in-game honors, and unlock content. Ages 6-11. $29.99.
