Here is the Pin Your Heart Into It: How Starbucks Built a Company One Cup at a Time book description from the Amazon website:
The success of Starbucks Coffee Company is one of the most amazing business stories in decades. What started as a single store on Seattle’s waterfront has grown into a company with over sixteen hundred stores worldwide and a new one opening every single business day. Just as remarkable as this incredible growth is the fact that Starbucks has managed to maintain its renowned commitment to product excellence and employee satisfaction.
In Pour Your Heart Into It, CEO Howard Schultz illustrates the principles that have shaped the Starbucks phenomenon, sharing the wisdom he has gained from his quest to make great coffee part of the American experience. Marketers, managers, and aspiring entrepreneurs will discover how to turn passion into profit in this definitive chronicle of the company that “has changed everything . . . from our tastes to our language to the face of Main Street.” (Fortune)
Here is the Stand Up for Yourself and Your Friends: Dealing with Bullies and Bossiness and Finding a Better Way book description from the Amazon website:
This book teaches girls how to spot bullying and how to stand up and speak out against it. Quizzes, quotes from other girls, and “what do you do?” scenarios present advice in an age-appropriate, digestible way. The message in this book is that there is no one right way to deal with bullying. Instead, there are lots of options for girls to try, from ignoring a bully and trying a few clever comebacks to reporting bullying to a trusted adult. Readers learn how to stand up for others and be a good friend, too. The book ends with a pledge girls can sign, plus tear-out tips for girls to share with their parents.

Here is the Smart Girl’s Guide to Sticky Situations book description from the Amazon website:
Grade 4-8-For the most part, the entries in this book hit the mark, with advice about such predicaments as not getting along with one’s teacher or being caught doing something wrong. There’s the lighthearted (what to do if you fall down stairs in front of people) and also the deadly serious (what to do “if you fall through ice”). Friends figure often, among them those who want to copy homework or who tell others the name of your crush. At times, however, the featured situations will have limited applicability, such as “how not to fall off a horse.” And some readers may not be highly interested in how to remove various stains from carpet and clothing. That said, the last advice is a statement of empowerment: “You can stand on your own two feet. You’ve got a good brain. You’ve got common sense. Keep them handy. Trust yourself. You’ll be able to handle just about anything.” That advice alone makes the book worthy of purchase. Colorful cartoon drawings brighten the pages.
