Ladybugs and Wind Chimes describes Adrienne Abbott’s struggle over the death of her twin sister, Arielle. Her guilt for her sister’s death has caused her to feel terrible anxiety. In wanting to escape her emotional roller coaster, she decides to take her life. However, at the moment she’s about to commit suicide, Adrienne chooses to live and receives help from her parents, grandparents, and her therapist.

The book describes how Adrienne copes with bullying after her classmates learn that she wanted to kill herself. Ladybugs and Wind Chimes is a self-help book for young teens, and what makes this book special is that Adrienne reaches out to the Lord to help her work through her guilt, writing letters to God in her journal as a way of staying connected to Him.

When eight year-old Leo Jansen watches Meg Kenton move in across the street, he has no idea the bossy girl will become his best friend. She is pink and sunshine and boldness, and while Leo’s family falls apart, her world is his sanctuary. Then she leaves for two years that becomes four, and Leo’s life goes to pieces. After Meg returns, lonely and doubting her worth, she looks for the boy who used to be her friend. She finds a young man she doesn’t recognize, a mean, rough troublemaker who can't stand her. Yet she’s drawn to him, and she asks God to help her reach the old Leo she used to know. She’s certain he’s still in there somewhere. But Leo is guarding dangerous secrets, and should Meg get too close, she'll figure them out. If he doesn’t do something to get rid of her, the last strands of his existence will come apart. And yet he wants to be the boy she’s looking for, not the monster he needs her to see. With the help of the garden and Meg’s parents, who understand all too well the hardships of growing up, maybe Meg can save Leo’s life, and he can turn around and rescue her heart. The Lion and the Ladybug is part of the Terry’s Garden series, tales about a love that touches generations and a garden where God heals broken hearts.

She’s perfectly happy to stay with her father, away from her neglectful mother and her grandfather’s beloved elephant, Queenie Grace. Then Grandpa Bill dies, and both Lily and Queenie Grace are devastated. When Lily travels to Florida for the funeral, she keeps her distance from the elephant. But the two are mourning the same man—and form a bond born of loss. And when Queenie Grace faces danger, Lily must come up with a plan to help save her friend.

Fat Girl Walking

Author: Brittany Gibbons

View: 789

Told through a series of larger-than-life snapshots, a hilarious memoir in essays about love, sex, marriage, motherhood, bikinis, and loving your body, no matter what size you are from the acclaimed blogger and body image advocate. Brittany Gibbons has been a plus size her whole life. But instead of hiding herself in the shadows of thinner women, Brittany became a wildly popular blogger and national spokesmodel—known for stripping on stage at TedX and standing in Times Square in a bikini on national television, and making skinny people everywhere uncomfortable. Talking honestly about size and body image on her popular blog, brittanyherself.com, she has ignited a national conversation. Now in her first book, she shares hilarious and painfully true stories about her life as a weird overweight girl growing up in rural Ohio, struggling with dating and relationships, giving the middle finger to dieting, finding love with a man smaller than her, accidentally having three kids, and figuring out the secret to loving her curves and becoming a nationally recognized body image advocate. And there’s sex, lots of it! Fat Girl Walking isn’t a diet book. It isn’t one of those former fat people memoirs about how someone battled, and won, in the fight against fat. Brittany doesn’t lose all the weight and reveal the happy, skinny girl that’s been hiding inside her. Instead, she reminds us that being chubby doesn’t mean you’ll end up alone, unhappy, or the subject of a cable medical show. What’s important is learning to love your shape. With her infectious humor and soul-baring honesty, Fat Girl Walking reveals a life full of the same heartbreak, joy, oddity, awkwardness, and wonder as anyone else’s. Just with better snacks.

Exploring and working with environmental issues can be exciting and enriching for Head Start staff. The goal of the technical guide is to broaden Head Start staff members' understanding of the natural environment so they can better incorporate environmental enrichment and environmental protection into their programs. The guide is organized into five sections, beginning with three training modules. Module 1, "Caring for Our Children, Caring for Our Earth," examines the Head Start program's overall goals in its work with children and families. This module explores ways that environmental concepts and environmental education can strengthen these services. Module 2, "Environmental Risks and Hazards," addresses staff members' ability to identify, understand, and alleviate environmental hazards, especially those relevant to their programs. Module 3, "Building Communities Which Consider the Seventh Generation," deals with community development and the big picture of environmental health now and in the future. This module encourages Head Start staff to consider practices and policies in this light. Each of the modules provides learning opportunities for workshop sessions and coaching and is organized into the following sections: (1) outcomes; (2) key concepts; (3) background information; (4) discussion/reflection questions; (5) learning activities; (6) points to consider, issues for discussion prompts; (7) additional activities to reinforce the expected outcomes and transfer skills to the work setting; and (8) handouts. Following the training modules, the guide includes a section on continuing professional development presents suggestions for further increasing knowledge and skills. A section on environmental education resources completes the guide. (KB)
