C&B BOOKS, was started in 1995, by Carol Rogers & Brenda Piper.The motivation behind this book business, was the lack of affordable books written by black authors.  We decided to become an asset to our Youth and the African American community in a whole.  We offer our books for less then the major stores, we knew this would provide our readers with a wider variety of reading material. We have, titles for all ages in all catagories, fiction, non-fiction, spiritual, inspirational, educational etc.

C&B Books Presents Sandra Gittens

Sandra L. Gittens, aka Granny Sanny is a married grandmother of five. Although she retired as an early childhood educator in 2005, she was able to resume her love of teaching in 2008 and is currently a part time teaching consultant.
Sandra enjoys writing poems and books for her grandchildren. They inspired her to create and design the Granny Sanny Collection: interactive books for grandparents and their young grandchildren, posters, tee shirts and mugs which celebrate the joys of grand parenthood.
She has also facilitated “The Read to Me Jamboree” for grandparents and their young grandchildren. This thematic “read aloud” workshop is specifically designed to promote early childhood literacy. My Granny Sanny’s Favorite Proverbs, one of the books from the Granny Sanny Collection, is the foundation of her inspirational mini-journal; Just Shut Your Mouth and Ask: “What would GOD want me to say?”

Book Description
Thoughtless words can wound as deeply as any sword, but wisely spoken words can heal. Proverbs 12:18 "It''s not what you say; it''s how you say it." The author incorporates her personal experiences with Biblical scriptures as she reaches out to the prudent Grandmothers who speak with evil tongues when offering "words of wisdom" about child rearing and "life''s lessons" to their loved ones. (You know who you are.) She suggests that they seek spiritual wisdom from Solomon''s Proverbs and Wise Sayings to redirect their evil tongues and avoid unnecessary family discord. Some readers have described Just Shut Your Mouth and Ask: "What would GOD want me to say?" as a "motivational, inspirational, self-help mini-journal" because of its explicit and succinct strategies: . Read Solomon''s Proverbs and Wise Sayings . Write your own Proverbs and interpretations . Document your observations, thoughts, feelings and spiritual wisdom on the"Keeping Pages" . Pray about what you should say . Infuse spiritual wisdom (a Proverb) and have a peaceful dialogue with yourfamily about the problems . Pray with your family about solutions to the problems Be prepared to read your Bible. Be prepared to write and express your innermost, callous thoughts as you vent on the "Keeping Pages." Be prepared to reflect and pray. Be prepared to redirect your evil tongue when you just shut your mouth and ask, "What would God want me to say?" If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God for it." James 1:5
