Local author Rebecca Crownover has written an educational and adventurous farming book for children. Her second book, Texas Farm Girl, Mascot Books, hardcover, $14.95; ebook $6.95, is dedicated to the memory of her "PawPaw," Rex Langley, who taught her about farming at an early age and showed her the importance of hard work. Its pub date is December 2013, just one year after his passing. Rebecca has stayed close to her roots. Originally from the Texas Panhandle, she is a partner in Lone Star Family Farms in the small farming community of Sunray, TX. Texas Farm Girl is Crownover's second children's book in two years. Her first book was inspired by an unfortunate tragic accident that took her husband’s life in an ATV accident that left Rebecca and her two-year-old daughter, Acie, searching for answers.

An innovative landmark a quarter century in the making, the new eastern span of the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge represents the latest spectacular chapter in the history of this storied structure. The new bridge's architect, Donald MacDonald, teams up with author Ira Nadel to create this illuminating book. With friendly text and charming illustrations, Bay Bridge reveals the design decisions that have shaped the evolution of the bridge over the last century—from the history of the original bridge, through the planning of the new span, to the construction of its signature 525-foot-high white tower. In the same elegant package as Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz, this volume makes a lovely souvenir for San Francisco devotees, architecture buffs, and tourists.

The debate over food stamps, and the debate over effects of junk food on the childhood obesity epidemic... ...is old news to childhood-obesity expert Louie Yuhasz (pronounced “you-hoss”). Louie is the founder and CEO of LOUIE’S KIDS (http://www.louieskids.org/ )... ...a nationally-recognized nonprofit organization that has been fighting childhood obesity for 12 years. The Food Stamp program has quadrupled in size since 2001... ...and it makes up 80% OF THE ALMOST $1 TRILLION FARM BILL passed by the Senate in June 2012. • The USDA doesn’t gather any data on what people buy with food stamps...but CANDY, SODA and ICE CREAM are allowed; while TOBACCO, ALCOHOL and PET FOOD are banned.
