Kid-friendly scrapbook

Close to My Heart, a multi-million dollar scrapbooking company in Pleasant Grove, has created scrapbooks that are 9X9 inches and 6X6 inches. Color-matched kits offer sports pages, school days pages, stamps and ink pens. The smaller album size fits in children’s and teens’ hands easier than the traditional 12X12 album.




   “Book of Mormon Battles” is a game of strategy and chance. Players battle one another using 56 different heroes and villains from the Book of Mormon. Cards can be strengthened with power cards like Faith, Wickedness, or Title of Liberty, or converted to change villains to heroes. Each character card has interesting facts about that Book of Mormon person. “Book of Mormon Battles” is being produced by American Fork’s Covenant Communications.


   “Crucial Confrontations: Tools for Resolving Broken Promises, Violated Expectations and Bad Behavior” is written by authors at VitalSmarts L.C., an organizational performance and training company based in Provo. “Crucial Confrontations” is based on more than 20 years of research and provides readers with tools to resolve controversial and complex issues by dealing with individuals who are either unwilling or unable to deal with failed promises or bad behavior. McGraw-Hill is publishing the book.



Toni Sorenson Brown of Provo captures the beauty and innocence of childhood in her latest book of photography, “Behold Your Little Ones.” Each picture is underscored with words of scripture or quotes from modern day prophets. From squeezable newborns to humorous toddlers these pictures remind of the miracle of children. “Behold Your Little Ones” will be released this fall by Covenant Communications.


“Book of Mormon Chess Set: Collectors Edition” takes the classic game of strategy and incorporates characters from the Book of Mormon. Each 3-inch piece is hand painted and detailed. Lehi, Sariah, Nephi, Captain Moroni, Helaman and the stripling warriors sit on one side of the board facing Laman, Gadianton and others who fought against the followers of Nephi. Book of Mormon Chess will be in local stores in October.
