Basket Case - book cover picture

Less manic and mean than most of Hiaasen's previous books, "Basket Case" is 1 part Leonard, 1 part Fletch, and 1 part Dan Jenkins (and that's a BIG compliment). The books is semi-tender (girl-boy stuff), but very tough on the business of journalism; Hiaasen feels as strongly about it as he does about the ruination of Florida, his other favorite subject. Throw in his obvious love for rock & roll and a by-the-way murder mystery and you have one terrific and witty book.

Lifetimes - book cover picture

This book would be effective for grief therapy and for teaching about life cycles. It specifically answers the question: What is a lifetime?My daughter, age 4, had a lot of questions about death. She was most especially interested in finding out when her "dying day" would be. This book seemed to help her understand that everyone's lifetime is special to them. I wanted her to understand that because someone else died it doesn't mean her death is imminent. A common fear among the young.An exquisitely illustrated and plainly written book, it speaks clearly to the children about a complicated subject. I highly recommend it for all home and school libraries for ages three and up. It should be used as part of a comprehensive set of books on biological and familial concepts as it is not meant to answer all of a child's questions on life cycles, grief, death or dying.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4) - book cover picture

This is the best Harry Potter book ever! Every single page was full of excitement, even the first few chapters, which are usually...not so great, considering they are just about Harry and the cruel Dursleys. Anyway, Harry is in a competition that hasn't taken place for a hundred years, due to too many casualties. Now, once again, Harry must battle evil. This book was great! I started reading it at 8:20 AM on July 8, and finished at 11:20 the next day. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I wish it was longer!

Happy Adoption Day! - book cover picture

You can call me biased. We've listened to John McCutcheon's song of the same name and enjoyed that a lot. Then a friend sent us this wonderfully illustrated children's book. That was bad enough. But to receive it the day we got back from China with our new baby girl capped it all.The family illustrated is a mixed family, which is good. You might be tempted to criticize the book because it simplifies the subject matter. Don't. Just enjoy it as a celebration of a very happy family event and share it with all kids, adoptive and others

Community Corrections: Probation, Parole and Intermediate Sanctions (Reading in Crime and Punishment) - book cover picture

Hunt County Community Supervision (Adult Probation Department) Greenville, Texas, is in the process of implementing "Total Quality Management" and "Performance Based Measures". This book validates our efforts and emphasizes the need for all correction agencies to identify what they do and how that justifies expenditure of public money. We do it or someone else not connected with community corrections will. Statistics are excellent. This book is a must for all our staff and judges and anyone interested in the "crisis" in community corrections.

Nanny 911 : Expert Advice for All Your Parenting Emergencies - book cover picture

As a fan of the Nanny 911 series, I was already sold on the basic premise of using consistent and loving discipline to raise children. This book describes in great detail the hows and whys of this type of parenting style.

I have been using another book called Behavior Coaching by a Dr. Scott Hall and Matt Pasquinilli. Nanny 911 is a great companion book to Behavior Coaching as it offers expert tips and strategies for handling immediate emergencies like screaming and whining children. Behavior Coaching is a long term approach to improving your child's behavior using a lot of the same fundamental concepts as Nanny 911.

To be a real parenting expert, or expert nanny, get Nanny 911 and Behavior Coaching and start practicing right away.

A Child Called "It": One Child's Courage to Survive - book cover picture

I love this book. I stayed up all night because I couldn't put it down. I am studying to be a teacher, and I love Psychology. Which is why I bought it (that and it was cheaper than "Chicken Poop for the Soul.") It made me cry however, and it hurts my heart to know that a mother could do that to her son. I reccomend this book to anyone who was an abused child, going to be/is an educator, or who needs a good cry.

Total Immersion - book cover picture

Did she really write these stories at 21? I'm seething with envy. Allegra Goodman is everything the back cover promised - gifted, brilliant, swift to get to the truth of things. She's also full of gentle irony and very, very perceptive. I must, however, say that the fact that the stories in the book deal with almost exclusively Jewish characters may somewhat hinder its being enjoyed by readers unfamiliar with that religion and background. But, all in all, it is a wonderful collection of stories both intelligent and tremendously funny.

10-Minute Life Lessons for Kids : 52 Fun and Simple Games and Activities to Teach Your Child Honesty, Trust, Love, and Other Important Values - book cover picture

We use the games in this book as the basis for discussions about character at the supper table with our 11 and 15 year olds. Jamie C. Miller had a great idea with this book. I think our kids will take away valuable lessons on values for their whole lives, and maybe do the same for their own kids someday.
Also recommended: Norman Thomas Remick's book of character called "West Point: Character Leadership Education..", which is an education in and of itself, and which my husband and I constantly refer to.
