An illuminating resource to help parents foster a love of writing in their child's life--filled with writing prompts, engaging home learning activities, and more. New educational research reveals that writing is as fundamental to a child's development as reading. But though there are books that promote literacy, no book guides parents in helping their child cultivate a love of writing. In this book, Pam Allyn, a nationally recognized educator and literacy expert, reminds us that writing is not only a key skill but also an essential part of self-discovery and critical to success later in life. Allyn offers the "the five keys" to help kids WRITE-Word Power, Ritual, Independence, Time, and Environment-along with fun, imaginative prompts to inspire and empower children to put their thoughts on the page. A groundbreaking blueprint for developing every child's abilities, Your Child's Writing Life teaches parents how to give a gift that will last a lifetime.

MOST ANTICIPATED by Bustle • "Sci-Fi Thriller" recommendation from Buzzfeed • An Indie Next Pick In this stunning follow-up to Hollow Kingdom and Seattle Times/Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association bestseller​, the animal kingdom's "favorite apocalyptic hero"is back with a renewed sense of hope for humanity, ready to take on a world ravaged by a viral pandemic (Helen Macdonald). Once upon an apocalypse, there lived an obscenely handsome American crow named S.T. . . . When the world last checked-in with its favorite Cheeto addict, the planet had been overrun by flesh-hungry beasts, and nature had started re-claiming her territory from humankind. S.T., the intrepid crow, alongside his bloodhound-bestie Dennis, had set about saving pets that had become trapped in their homes after humanity went the way of the dodo. That is, dear reader, until S.T. stumbled upon something so rare—and so precious—that he vowed to do everything in his power to safeguard what could, quite literally, be humanity's last hope for survival. But in a wild world plagued by prejudiced animals, feather-raising environments, new threats so terrifying they make zombies look like baby bunnies, and a horrendous dearth of cheesy snacks, what's a crow to do? Why, wing it on another big-hearted, death-defying adventure, that's what! Joined by a fabulous new cast of animal characters, S.T. faces many new challenges plus his biggest one yet: parenthood. Includes a Reading Group Guide.

Winner of 2016 Books for a Better Life Award A Washington Post Book Club Selection A Public Books Favorite Book of 2015 When her daughter was born nearly four months premature, Deanna Fei confronted a shattering question: Had she delivered a child or lost one? Over months in the hospital, as she held the hand of a tiny baby fighting for her life inside a glass box, she came to grips with parenthood at its most elemental. Then, a year after she brought her daughter home, the CEO of her husband's company publicly blamed the medical bills of the beautiful, now-thriving little girl for a cut in employee benefits and attached a price tag to her life, setting off a national firestorm. Girl in Glass is the riveting story of one child's harrowing journey and a mother's impassioned defense of human worth against corporate disregard. With luminous prose and an unflinching eye, Fei explores what it means to save a life: from the front lines of a neonatal intensive care unit to the perils of the American health-care system; from decades of medical innovation to the question of how we care for our most vulnerable; and finally, to the potent force of a child's will to live. Above all, Girl in Glass is a testament to how love takes hold when a new life defies all expectations.

"Cripples ain't supposed to be happy" sings Anita Hollander, balancing on her single leg and grinning broadly. This moment--from her multi-award-winning one-woman show, Still Standing--captures the essence of this theatre anthology. Hollander and nineteen other playwright-performers craftily subvert and smash stereotypes about how those within the disability community should look, think, and behave. Utilizing the often-conflicting tools of Critical Disability Studies and Medical Humanities, these plays and their accompanying essays approach disability as a vast, intersectional demographic, which ties individuals together less by whatever impairment, difference, or non-normative condition they experience, and more by their daily need to navigate a world that wasn't built for them. From race, gender, and sexuality to education, dating, and pandemics, these plays reveal there is no aspect of human life that does not, in some way, intersect with disability.

“A new story to immerse yourself in this Christmas season—a story that inspires your faith, beckons to your imagination, and tugs on your heartstrings.” —Prairie Sky Book Reviews Reality and fantasy converge in this wonder-filled tale, beautifully crafted by authors Chris Schneider and Michael Phillips. A grieving World War II widow in search of a long-lost daughter finds herself drawn to a small Wyoming town. A crippled and mute orphan boy has a wondrous dream every Christmas Eve where he walks, talks, sees his mother, and meets a mysterious girl who becomes his best friend. “Being filled with occurrences that could only come from Above, as well as Heavenly dreams and mysterious angel encounters, this story will continue to surprise readers until the very end. The setting of a small, post-WWII town, various secondary characters who add color and depth, and the back-and-forth timeline of events increases the one-of-a-kind feeling of the book, but in a special way makes it more endearing, as well.”—Prairie Sky Book Reviews

Discover the classic guide to past-life regression that reveals how soulmates are reunited across the ages, from renowned psychic researcher Dick Sutphen. "There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that romantic partners, together in this lifetime, have been together before . . ." After being hypnotized and shown his own past lives, Dick Sutphen went on to become a practitioner of hypnosis and past-life regressions. Over the years, he worked with many people and discovered the importance of karma: that we have lessons to learn, and if we do not do so in one lifetime, we will encounter them in another lifetime. Other people are instrumental in our learning these karmic lessons, and we can be tied to certain individuals in life after life. In this book, Sutphen shares regressions with several clients and includes transcripts of their sessions. In hearing their stories, we discover what these people came to understand about the challenges in their present lives after they looked to the past. Originally written in 1976, You Were Born Again to Be Together remains a useful primer in shining a light on metaphysics and the amazing power of the human spirit. Discover the classic guide to past-life regression that reveals how souls are reunited across the ages.

As they settle in for the night, an intruder steals the Time-Ryder device from Jack’s room and he vanishes with it. The search for the missing Colonel leads them to late 19th Century London at the beginning of a series of brutal slayings in Whitechapel by the notorious Jack the Ripper, a subject that Professor Carlson knows only too well, but can his knowledge of the period and their presence in Whitechapel merely be a coincidence, or is there another reason for their journey into the past? What initially begins as a search, becomes a pursuit through time. From Victorian London to the decks of the doomed Hospital ship HMHS Britannic to a fateful event in Nova’s past. The travellers begin to wonder if the tapestry of the past is very much woven into their future, as the events of the past could possibly be a result of the days to come...

Anita Swanson Speake’s story begins with a diagnosis: idiopathic cardiomyopathy. At sixty-five, she had just found out that her heart was dying. When she got the news, she was in her late sixties. Her girls were raised and gone. Her three decades of high-stress nursing was behind her. She was living with her hopefully last, and certainly best, husband in a big, contemporary house with lots of glass on a lake in rural Northern California. She loved her life. But she didn’t love her scary new medical condition—or the many awful side effects of the medications her doctor promised would serve as a crutch for her heart. As she struggled with all this, Speake began to see herself as a member of the dying rather than the living. And over time, she began to ponder a new question: “Do I really want to get well?” Heartsong takes readers on an often humorous, sometimes sad journey through the best of Western medicine, complemented by a sampling of alternative and Eastern support systems—and through Speake’s evolving relationship with God—as she navigates this transition. Ultimately, with the help of her doctors, a Reiki practitioner, a Mindfulness coach, and her deep, abiding faith, Speake found renewed purpose late in a changing life—and realized God was waiting there for her all along.

In the real world, many women are still struggling for equality, but science fiction and fantasy provide a stage for the portrayal of women who have come fully into their own. Here, a talented group of writers has taken up the challenge of creating strong, well-rounded female protagonists, more than able to defend themselves and take the helm--whether in space, on distant worlds, in our own future, or in fantasy realms where a civilization's fate hangs in the balance.
