In this engaging and reflective essay, Jerry Griswold examines the unique qualities of childhood experience and their reappearance as frequent themes in children’s literature. Surveying dozens of classic and popular works for the young—from Heidi and The Wizard of Oz to Beatrix Potter and Harry Potter—Griswold demonstrates how great children's writers succeed because of their uncanny ability to remember what it feels like to be a kid: playing under tables, shivering in bed on a scary night, arranging miniature worlds with toys, zooming around as caped superheroes, listening to dolls talk. No softheaded discussion of kids’ “cute” convictions nor a developmentally-focused critique of their “immature” beliefs, Feeling Like a Kid boldly and honestly identifies the ways in which the young think and see the world in a manner different from that of adults. Written by a leading scholar, prize-winning author, and frequent contributor to the Los Angeles Times, this extensively illustrated book will fascinate general readers as well as all those who study childhood and children's literature.

Raising a baby is joyful, amazing . . . and ridiculously difficult. But with some insight into what's actually going on inside your little one's head, your job as a parent can become a little bit easier—and a lot more fun. In Think Like a Baby, coauthors Amber and Andy Ankowski—The Doctor and the Dad—show parents how to re-create classic child development experiments using common household items. These simple step-by-step experiments apply from the third trimester through age seven and beyond and help parents understand their children's physical, cognitive, language, and social development. Amazed parents won't just read about how their kids are behaving, changing, and thinking at various stages, they'll actually see it for themselves while interacting and having fun with them at the same time. Each experiment is followed by a discussion of its practical implications for parents, such as why to always bring more than one toy to a restaurant, which baby gadgets to buy (and which ones to avoid), how to get kids to be perfectly happy eating just half of their dessert, and much more.

Jason Rhodes, convinced that he is the favorite of a lesser god, whose name will remain anonymous, has two driving ambitions. He must become a famous writer (He wisely does not ask for any prizes) and he must have Stephanie Howorth, a young Mississippi girl so endowed with attributes, both physical and mental, that Aphrodite would have wept at the sight of her. Jason's first ambition suffered major setbacks early on because he and Stephanie and three other service personnel become marooned on an island in the Fijis. This is just after WWII, when young aristocratic women occasionally gave the time of day to commoners like Jason (if they were handsome enough). Jason was not only handsome he was practically the only man around, and so his second driving ambition made great progress up until a Fiji chieftain decides to give them a ride to the nearest airport. By this time the baby has been born and is learning Fijian. In the States Jason's fortunes switch quickly. He loses Stephanie because of one part hardheadedness and two parts stubbornness. But his books, produced late at night in an attic, begin to sell like hotcakes....Click here for more.

Back in 2007, two gently unemployed people with no previous restaurant experience drove 90 minutes to Chicago to eat a raw food dinner. 90 minutes. They said, I wish there was somewhere closer And they were stupid enough to decide the best solution to the problem was to open their own raw vegan restaurant. Not normal people. Not even close. This is their story. KATHY: Did you remember to put in the recipes? DANNY: Yes. The string around my finger totally worked.

This book is based on a true story of the life of a child who became the victim of cruel circumstances that led to years of rejection, pain, heartache and abuse. Her blue eyes saw more in her young life, than most see in a lifetime. She felt she would always be a product of her past and could never see any way to a brighter future. Shame and disgrace had taken a toll in her young life, heart and soul. She had lost all hope from the pain and struggles at such a tender young age that she contemplated suicide on many occasions. Her life seemed to be spiraling down a slippery slope of no return. Each day she stared in a mirror at a pale reflection of emptiness that gave her no reason to live or have hope for a brighter tomorrow. Her heart wrenching home situation of abuse, lack of love, insecurity and turmoil drove her into a deep anger that almost destroyed her life. Her world was shaken and turned upside down and she felt there was no one she could turn to for help or advice. Yet, something deep inside continually nudged her along the way to continue her fight for survival. It took an extreme amount of energy to push the mess of life and the tears of rejection and abuse out of sight in order to maintain her sanity. The longing in Joyce's tender heart for a better tomorrow was a driving force that would keep her from abandoning all hope. 'Pain Through A Child's Eyes', is a story that will touch the very core of your heart and bring tears to your eyes, as you feel in your own heart the pain her blue eyes and heart encountered.
