No Thanks!: Saying No to Alcohol and Drugs (Paperback)
It's hard to know what to say when older kids pressure you to do something you know is wrong. Blake is a fifth-grader with one thing on his mind: karate. He needs his friend's older brother, Jacob, to help him get ready for a big karate tournament. But Jacob's new friend, Ryan, has other ideas-that could get all of them into a lot of trouble. What will Blake decide when the right thing to do is also the hardest thing to do?

About the Author
Erainna was born and raised in central Louisiana. The oldest of five children she always yearned to be a teacher and forced her siblings to play school year round. Naturally, she graduated with a teaching degree in 1995 and earned her Master's degree in 2000. Five years later she earned her Education Specialist degree in early childhood education. After fifteen years in the classroom, she moved to the role of school counselor and has never been happier. While serving as school counselor at an elementary school in northeast Texas, she frequently uses children's books as therapy to help her students heal, learn and grow. Ideas for her books come from the students she works with on a daily basis. Her goal, as an author, is to touch the hearts of children, one story at a time. Erainna has written over thirty books designed to guide parents, teachers, and counselors as they help children to become their best self. Erainna lives on a 300 acre cattle ranch near the Red River with her husband, two daughters, three dogs, two horses, and one ill-tempered cat.
