Here is a little quote to get things started and hopefully put a smile on your face: Do you like green eggs and ham? I do not like... them, Sam-I-am. I do not like green eggs and ham! Here is a little info about Green Eggs and Ham that you may or not know: Green Eggs and Ham is a best-selling and critically acclaimed book by Dr. Seuss (a pen-name of Theodor Seuss Geisel), first published on August 12, 1960. As of 2001, according to Publishers Weekly, it was the fourth best-selling English-language children's book of all time. The story has appeared in several animated videos starting with 1973's Dr. Seuss on the Loose: The Sneetches, The Zax, Green Eggs and Ham starring Paul Winchell as the voice of both Sam I Am and the unnamed recipient of his constant pestering. A character known as 'Sam I Am' pesters Sam's friend to taste green eggs and ham. The unnamed character declines, claiming to dislike green eggs and ham. However, the persistent Sam I Am will not cease following Sam's friend around and trying to encourage him to try the green eggs and ham, asking him if he will sample the dish if he does it in various locations (boat, rain, train, dark, tree, car, box, house, here or there, anywhere) and with an assortment of dining partners (goat, fox, mouse). At the end, Sam's friend gives in to Sam I Am's pestering and takes a bite of green eggs and ham, which he finds he does indeed like. Pass the green eggs, please. Read More

In recent years, numerous studies have shown that bright, charming, seemingly confident and socially skilled teenagers from afflue...nt, loving families are experiencing epidemic rates of depression, substance abuse, and anxiety disorders rates higher than in any other socioeconomic group of American adolescents. Materialism, pressure to achieve, perfectionism, and disconnection are combining to create a perfect storm that is devastating children of privilege and their parents alike. In this eye-opening, provocative, and essential book, clinical psychologist Madeline Levine explodes one child-rearing myth after another. With empathy and candor, she identifies toxic cultural influences and well-intentioned, but misguided, parenting practices that are detrimental to a child s healthy self-development. Her thoughtful, practical advice provides solutions that will enable parents to help their emotionally troubled "star" child cultivate an authentic sense of self. Read More

Psychologist Madeline Levine brings together cutting-edge research and thirty years of clinical experience to explode once and for... all the myth that good grades, high test scores, and college acceptances should define the parenting endgame. Parents, educators, and the media wring their hands about the plight of America s children and teens soaring rates of emotional problems, limited coping skills, disengagement from learning and yet there are ways to reverse these disheartening trends. Teach Your Children Well acknowledges that every parent wants successful children. However, until we are clearer about our core values and the parenting choices that are most likely to lead to authentic, and not superficial, success, we will continue to raise exhausted, externally driven, impaired children who believe they are only as good as their last performance. Real success is always an inside job, argues Levine, and is measured not by today s report card but by the people our children become fifteen or twenty years down the line. Refusing to be diverted by manufactured controversies such as "tiger moms versus coddling moms," Levine confronts the real issues behind the way we push some of our kids to the breaking point while dismissing the talents and interests of many others. She shows us how to shift our focus from the excesses of hyperparenting and the unhealthy reliance on our children for status and meaning to a parenting style that concentrates on both enabling academic success as well as developing a sense of purpose, well-being, connection, and meaning in our children s lives. Teach Your Children Well is a call to action. And while it takes courage to make the changes we believe in, the time has come, says Levine, to return our overwrought families to a healthier and saner version of themselves. Read More

As Harry enters his fifth year at wizard school, it seems the bonds "of friendship and trust" have never been more sorely tested. ...Lord Voldemort s rise has opened a rift in the wizarding world between those who believe the truth about his return, and those who prefer to believe it s all madness and lies -- just more trouble from Harry Potter. Add this to a host of other worries for Harry... A Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poisoned honey A venomous, disgruntled house-elf Ron as keeper of the Gryffindor Quidditch team And of course, what every student dreads: end-of-term Ordinary Wizarding Level exams ...and you d know what Harry faces during the day. But at night it s even worse, because then he dreams of a single door in a silent corridor. And this door is somehow more terrifying than every other nightmare combined. In the richest installment of J. K. Rowling s seven-part story, Harry Potter confronts the unreliability of the very government of the magical world, and the impotence of the authorities at Hogwarts. Despite this (or perhaps because of it) Harry finds depth and strength in his friends, beyond what even he knew; boundless loyalty and unbearable sacrifice. Though thick runs the plot (as well as the spine), readers will race through these pages, and leave Hogwarts, like Harry, wishing only for the next train back. This brilliant and utterly compelling new adventure begins with the words: The hottest day of the summer so far was drawing to a close and a drowsy silence lay over the large, square houses of Privet Drive.....The only person left outside was a teenage boy who was lying flat on his back in a flowerbed outside number four. Later in the novel, J. K. Rowling writes: Dumbledore lowered his hands and surveyed Harry through his half-moon glasses. "It is time," he said, "for me to tell you what I should have told you five years ago, Harry. Please sit down. I am going to tell you everything." Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is over 255,000 words compared to over 191,000 words in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The new book is 38 chapters long, one more than Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. When the government of the magic world and authorities at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry refuse to believe in the growing threat of a freshly revived Lord Voldemort, fifteen-year-old Harry Potter finds support from his loyal friends in facing the evil wizard and other new terrors.

The highly anticipated third book in the critically acclaimed and bestselling series takes the art of being wimpy to a whole new l...evel. Let s face it: Greg Heffley will never change his wimpy ways. Somebody just needs to explain that to Greg s father. You see, Frank Heffley actually thinks he can get his son to toughen up, and he enlists Greg in organized sports and other ?manly? endeavors. Of course, Greg is able to easily sidestep his father s efforts to change him. But when Greg s dad threatens to send him to military academy, Greg realizes he has to shape up . . . or get shipped out. Greg and his family and friends, who make the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books a must-read for middle school readers, are back and at their best in this hilarious new installment of the series, which is sure to please current fans while attracting new ones. Publishers Weekly-1/19/2009: The third book in this genre-busting series is certain to enlarge Kinney s presence on the bestseller lists, where the previous titles have taken up residence for the past two years. Kinney s spot-on humor and winning formula of deadpan text set against cartoons are back in full force. This time, Greg starts off on New Year s Day (he resolves to ?help other people improve,? telling his mother, ?I think you should work on chewing your potato chips more quietly?) and ends with summer vacation. As he fends off his father s attempts to make him more of a man (the threat of military school looms), Greg s hapless adventures include handing out anonymous valentines expressing his true feelings (?Dear James, You smell?), attempting to impress his classmate Holly and single-handedly wrecking his soccer team s perfect season. Kinney allows himself some insider humor as well, with Greg noting the ?racket? children s book authors have going. ?All you have to do is make up a character with a snappy name, and then make sure the character learns a lesson at the end of the book.? Greg, self-centered as ever, may be the exception proving that rule. Ages 8–12. (Jan.) FandP level: T Read More
