Book Excerpt :

Tom Perrotta's thirty-ish parents of young children are a varied and surprising bunch. There's Todd, the handsome stay-at-home dad dubbed "The Prom King" by the moms of the playground; Sarah, a lapsed feminist with a bisexual past, who seems to have stumbled into a traditional marriage; Richard, Sarah's husband, who has found himself more and more involved with a fantasy life on the internet than with the flesh and blood in his own house; and Mary Ann, who thinks she has it all figured out, down to scheduling a weekly roll in the hay with her husband, every Tuesday at 9pm. They all raise their kids in the kind of sleepy American suburb where nothing ever seems to happen-at least until one eventful summer, when a convicted child molester moves back to town, and two restless parents begin an affair that goes further than either of them could have imagined. Unexpectedly suspenseful, but written with all the fluency and dark humor of Perrotta's previous novels, Little Children exposes the adult dramas unfolding amidst the swingsets and slides of an ordinary American playground.

Book Short Summary:

From updated versions of classic fairy tales all the way to original stories full of raw hate and vitrol, GARY DAVIDSON takes the children's story back to its cruel, bitter, heartless and vulgar roots. Lessons in today's life, unheeded warnings, political satire, and immorality tales abound in this collection of bedtime stories no child should know until they've already had their innocence ripped from them like a trout plucked from the river for dinner. From a tale about a century old majestic pine that ends up as nothing but a bunch of worn, broken and discarded toothpicks (just like today's employees), to a story about a murderous Ice Cream truck driver prowling suburban streets for his next tasty morsel, BEDTIME STORIES FOR BAD LITTLE CHILDREN are the stuff of nightmares, and too often the very Grimm realities of our tiny futile lives. But seriously, don't give this to sensitive readers, you'll just spoil the surprise of aging for them...

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Just So Stories for Little Children (Illustrated)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Just So Stories for Little Children are a highly fantasized origin stories, especially for differences among animals, they are among Kipling's best known works. The stories are pourquoi (French for "why") or origin stories, fantastic accounts of how various phenomena came about. In it, Mowgli hears the story of how the tiger got his stripes. The Just So Stories typically have the theme of a particular animal being modified from an original form to its current form by the acts of man, or some magical being. For example, the Whale has a tiny throat because he swallowed a mariner, who tied a raft inside to block the whale from swallowing other men. The Camel has a hump given to him by a djinn as punishment for the camel's refusing to work (the hump allows the camel to work longer between times of eating). The Leopard's spots were painted by an Ethiopian (after the Ethiopian painted himself black). The Kangaroo gets its powerful hind legs, long tail, and hopping gait after being chased all day by a dingo, sent by a minor god responding to the Kangaroo's request to be made different from all other animals. Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was an English short-story writer, poet, and novelist. He wrote tales and poems of British soldiers in India and stories for children. He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story; his children's books are classics of children's literature; and one critic described his work as exhibiting "a versatile and luminous narrative gift".

Book Short Summary:

"Illuminates the importance of fear and suffering in shaping African American and Jewish children’s literature. . . . Gives a cogent understanding of how each community's difficult historical narratives coupled with their religious and social lives have helped to prepare children to engage an American civic life that has been hostile at times to their ethnic groups." —Anthea Butler, University of Pennsylvania This compelling work examines classic and contemporary Jewish and African American children’s literature. Through close readings of selected titles published since 1945, Jodi Eichler-Levine analyzes what is at stake in portraying religious history for young people, particularly when the histories in question are traumatic ones. In the wake of the Holocaust and lynchings, of the Middle Passage and flight from Eastern Europe's pogroms, children’s literature provides diverse and complicated responses to the challenge of representing difficult collective pasts. In reading the work of various prominent authors, including Maurice Sendak, Julius Lester, Jane Yolen, Sydney Taylor, and Virginia Hamilton, Eichler-Levine changes our understanding of North American religions. If children are the idealized recipients of the past, what does it mean to tell tales of suffering to children? Suffer the Little Children asks readers to alter their worldviews about children’s literature as an “innocent” enterprise, revisiting the genre in a darker and more unsettled light. Jodi Eichler-Levine is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies and Women’s Studies at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. Her work has appeared in American Quarterly, Shofar, and Postscripts.

It’s always a great day to visit the zoo! In this delightful counting book, your child will meet playful kangaroos, colorful peacocks, gentle doves, and inquisitive cows while learning number concepts. The book was inspired by author Elvy Rolle’s field trips to the zoo while she worked with preschool children as a speech-language pathologist. “As I observed the children, it occurred to me that an interactive book on this theme would be a fun way for them to revisit the zoo,” she says. “I hope that Five Little Children at the Zoo will inspire the imagination and creativity of young children, as well as enhance their oral language and early literacy connections, as they listen to and interact with the story.”

Book Short Summary:

Child upbringing determines the future of nations. Adolescent stage is ubiquitously the most difficult in this endeavor. Caregivers try to mold youngsters before entering this stage. However, biological factors usually surpass these efforts. Many adolescents are rebellious. Adolescents form a substantial percentage of world population. They cannot be overlooked. Their successes determine the world's future. Different cultures and religions have similarities and differences in upbringing adolescents. Some methods are autocratic, authoritative, or democratic. All aim at having successful adults. Positive oral communication builds good relationships between adolescents and their caregivers. Jews and some African tribes have good examples. In addition, Jesus's life gives unmatched examples. He is the Messiah. Lives of Prophet Mohammed and Buddha are also exemplary. Teachers are important caretakers. Their approaches in upbringing adolescents have profound impacts on the latter's future. Female adolescent upbringing is highly challenging. They may get pregnant. Those snared get into lifelong difficulties. Some of these entangle themselves. Aretha Franklin and Oprah Winfrey are good examples to emulate. Although caretakers try to protect females against pregnancies, the problem continues to exist. Unfortunately, some teachers and the clergy escalate the problem. We should not be involved.

Book Short Summary:

“Christakis . . . expertly weaves academic research, personal experience and anecdotal evidence into her book . . . a bracing and convincing case that early education has reached a point of crisis . . . her book is a rare thing: a serious work of research that also happens to be well-written and personal . . . engaging and important.” --Washington Post "What kids need from grown-ups (but aren't getting)...an impassioned plea for educators and parents to put down the worksheets and flash cards, ditch the tired craft projects (yes, you, Thanksgiving Handprint Turkey) and exotic vocabulary lessons, and double-down on one, simple word: play." --NPR The New York Times bestseller that provides a bold challenge to the conventional wisdom about early childhood, with a pragmatic program to encourage parents and teachers to rethink how and where young children learn best by taking the child’s eye view of the learning environment To a four-year-old watching bulldozers at a construction site or chasing butterflies in flight, the world is awash with promise. Little children come into the world hardwired to learn in virtually any setting and about any matter. Yet in today’s preschool and kindergarten classrooms, learning has been reduced to scripted lessons and suspect metrics that too often undervalue a child’s intelligence while overtaxing the child’s growing brain. These mismatched expectations wreak havoc on the family: parents fear that if they choose the “wrong” program, their child won’t get into the “right” college. But Yale early childhood expert Erika Christakis says our fears are wildly misplaced. Our anxiety about preparing and safeguarding our children’s future seems to have reached a fever pitch at a time when, ironically, science gives us more certainty than ever before that young children are exceptionally strong thinkers. In her pathbreaking book, Christakis explains what it’s like to be a young child in America today, in a world designed by and for adults, where we have confused schooling with learning. She offers real-life solutions to real-life issues, with nuance and direction that takes us far beyond the usual prescriptions for fewer tests, more play. She looks at children’s use of language, their artistic expressions, the way their imaginations grow, and how they build deep emotional bonds to stretch the boundaries of their small worlds. Rather than clutter their worlds with more and more stuff, sometimes the wisest course for us is to learn how to get out of their way. Christakis’s message is energizing and reassuring: young children are inherently powerful, and they (and their parents) will flourish when we learn new ways of restoring the vital early learning environment to one that is best suited to the littlest learners. This bold and pragmatic challenge to the conventional wisdom peels back the mystery of childhood, revealing a place that’s rich with possibility.

Book Short Summary:

The book is a literal exposition of Jesus statements: I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 18:3), and I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it (Mark 10:15). Jesus also said to his disciples, Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these (Mark 10:14). Like a little child seeks to answer the questions: How does one receive the kingdom like a little child? How does one change and become like little children? What does it mean that the kingdom of God belongs to such as little children? The author has given down-to-earth explanations to these issues spiced with simple, captivating, and amazing real life examples. Everyone, therefore, who desires to enter the kingdom of God, is earnestly advised to read this book. Like a little child is one of the best books I have ever read. Indeed, it is a masterpiece I commend all and sundry to assiduously digest it. Sam Ike, Priest and Consultant Physician. The beauty of the book may well be in its style of simplicityIt uses ordinary everyday experiences to elucidate its message in simple terms. J. N. Obinegbo, Journalist.

This compelling work examines classic and contemporary Jewish and African American children’s literature. Through close readings of selected titles published since 1945, Jodi Eichler-Levine analyzes what is at stake in portraying religious history for young people, particularly when the histories in question are traumatic ones. In the wake of the Holocaust and lynchings, of the Middle Passage and flight from Eastern Europe's pogroms, children’s literature provides diverse and complicated responses to the challenge of representing difficult collective pasts. In reading the work of various prominent authors, including Maurice Sendak, Julius Lester, Jane Yolen, Sydney Taylor, and Virginia Hamilton, Eichler-Levine changes our understanding of North American religions. She illuminates how narratives of both suffering and nostalgia graft future citizens into ideals of American liberal democracy, and into religious communities that can be understood according to recognizable notions of reading, domestic respectability, and national sacrifice. If children are the idealized recipients of the past, what does it mean to tell tales of suffering to children, and can we imagine modes of memory that move past utopian notions of children as our future? Suffer the Little Children asks readers to alter their worldviews about children’s literature as an “innocent” enterprise, revisiting the genre in a darker and more unsettled light.

Book Short Summary:

It is no secret that growing up in today’s world is challenging. From the time children are conceived until they graduate from high school, parents have an average of nineteen years to prepare them to face the world on their own. In this short time span, we must successfully communicate to our children the value of their lives in such way that they pick it up themselves and carry it throughout their lives with great care. Passionate children’s advocate and ministry volunteer Kitty Havener relies on Scripture and on her experience as a mother of four to share inspirational advice intended to help parents embrace their children with the kind of love that will meet their needs, both today and in the future. She carefully considers what today’s children are missing—what prevents them from living fruitfully. Havener also encourages parents to care for their children’s spirits as much as they care for their minds and bodies, establish their children’s self-worth as a valuable asset, and teach their children to live truthfully, choosing their own paths. The Cry of the Children guides parents through the process of learning what our children really need from us and why we should listen to the cries of their hearts and then partner with God to meet their needs.

Book Short Summary:

Rootabaga Stories is a children's book of interrelated short stories by Carl Sandburg. The whimsical, sometimes melancholy stories, which often use nonsense language, were originally created for his own daughters. Sandburg had three daughters, Margaret, Janet and Helga, whom he nicknamed "Spink", "Skabootch" and "Swipes", and those nicknames occur in some of his Rootabaga stories. The "Rootabaga" stories were born of Sandburg's desire for "American fairy tales" to match American childhood. A large number of the stories are told by the Potato Face Blind Man, an old minstrel of the Village of Liver-and-Onions who hangs out in front of the local post office. His impossibly acquired first-hand knowledge of the stories adds to the book's narrative feel and fantastical nature. Excerpt: "Gimme the Ax lived in a house where everything is the same as it always was. 'The chimney sits on top of the house and lets the smoke out, said Gimme the Ax. The doorknobs open the doors. The windows are always either open or shut. We are always either upstairs or downstairs in this house. Everything is the same as it always was..."

Book Short Summary:

Printz Honor-winning author Adam Rapp spins a raw, gripping, and ultimately redemptive story about three disaffected teens and a kidnapped child. Three teenagers — a sharp, well-to-do girl named Bounce and two struggling boys named Wiggins and Orange — are holding a four-yearold girl hostage in Orange’s basement. The little girl answers to “the Frog” and seems content to play a video game about wolves all day long, a game that parallels the reality around her. As the stakes grow higher and the guilt and tension mount, Wiggins cracks and finally brings Frog to a trusted adult. Not for the faint of heart, Adam Rapp’s powerful, mesmerizing narrative ventures deep into psychological territory that few dare to visit.
