Ida B
...and Her Plans to Maximize Fun, Avoid Disaster, and (Possibly) Save the World

by Katherine Hannigan

Ida B sparkled! She was a planner! No doubt about it. She had her days planned for fun. She loved to draw, to invent, and to talk with her friends, Viola, Gerturde, Pastel, Paulie T., and Henry VIII. Did it matter that they were trees? She loved trees! And the brook was her friend, too, even though he sometimes left before they were finished talking. Ida B. Applewood had everything under control...until disaster hit and darkness put out her light. What kind of plan could make everything all right again? How could she handle the storms that were coming her way? Will the light ever break through the darkness again?

This is the story of a little family sharing much love. It is the beautiful story of love, trials, despair, rebellion, repentance, forgiveness, and light.

Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like falling leaves."
