An informational picture book that provides children with confidence about accepting and rejecting physical contact from others is an invaluable resource that can help give children a voice in uncomfortable situations.
Without being taught about body boundaries, a child may be too young to understand when abuse is happening—or that it’s wrong. This straightforward, gentle book offers a tool parents, teachers, and counselors can use to help children feel, be, and stay safe. The rhyming story and simple, friendly illustrations provide a way to sensitively share and discuss the topic, guiding young children to understand that their private parts belong to them alone. The overriding message of My Body Belongs to Me is that if someone touches your private parts, tell your mom, your dad, your teacher, or another safe adult.

Should wisdom be judged by the answers we give to life's greatest questions? Or conversely, should wisdom be judged by the profundity of our questions? In The Chain, author Samir Morcos inspires us to begin our search for insight by first acknowledging our ignorance. He then guides us through the philosophical and theological maze he refers to as a puzzle. One piece of the puzzle may trigger us to question how our bodily form came into existence. Another piece may activate our curiosity about the ebb and flow of the ocean's tides. Everywhere we look, from the color of our eyes to the people in our lives, we see questions, and we are propelled by our inner longing to seek satisfying answers. The Chain reveals startling revelations about age-old reflections. It takes its readers on the journey of their lives-and beyond Life challenges inspired author Samir Edward Morcos to become intensely interested in some tough topics, like guilt, evil, and truth. His drive to unravel the uncertainty of the universe, and to share what he has learned, impelled him to write The Chain.

FMS, a common term for fibromyalgia, attacks men, women, and even children of all ages, varying in intensity from patient to patient. Because doctors do not like to treat conditions they don’t understand, patients are often ignored, denied pain relief, shuttled off to other “experts,” or filled with powerful prescription drugs that may add new and confusing symptoms. Thus begins a vicious cycle of frustrating doctor appointments with no clear diagnoses and continuing treatments that may or may not lead to any relief. If you’ve always trusted that most of your doctors are up-to-date, informed, and rarely mistaken about a diagnosis or treatment, What Your Doctor Doesn’t Know about Fibromyalgia may change your mind. Fibromyalgia is listed as one of the top ten most painful conditions in medicine, but many doctors still do not “believe” in it. If they do recognize it, they have only a vague notion of a collection of mild symptoms that they attribute to stress, menstrual problems, weight gain, depression, or hysteria—none of which have been scientifically linked to fibromyalgia. What Your Doctor Doesn't Know about Fibromyalgia will help you take charge of your condition and teach you how to find physicians you can trust so that you can obtain the relief you need.

¿Without warning there was a tremendous explosion that shattered the windows and so shook the house that the soup sloshed out of our bowls, spreading in puddles and rivulets on the table. ¿I ran out into the street. Looking south, I saw a great mass of black smoke rising into the sky. My father came and stood beside me. I could see that he was very upset. His face was grim as he turned to me and said, `Now we must face an unpredictable future.¿¿ So began the turmoil that turned China upside down and set an intelligent young man born to wealth and power off on an amazing journey through this world and the otherworldly in search of meaning and freedom. A Time of Ghosts is his remarkable, true story. HOK-PANG TANG was a physician and surgeon trained in both Western and traditional Chinese medicine. He practiced as a medical doctor in China, and later as an acupuncturist in the United States.

In these wonderfully funny and poignant stories, Willett's eccentric, complex characters think and do the unconventional. Soft, euphonic women gradually grow old; weak, unhappy men confront love and their own mortality; and abominable children desperately try to grow up with grace. With a unique voice and dry humor, Willett gives us a new insight into human existence, showing us those specific moments in relationships when life suddenly becomes visible. Critically acclaimed when it was first published in 1987, Jenny and the Jaws of Life is being brought back due to popular demand. It's a timeless collection filled with a certain freshness and wit that ring just as loudly today.
