Speak: 10th Anniversary Edition
Laurie Halse Anderson
Astoundingly good writing of a too realistic tale
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. If you have daughters, you must read this book. If you are a woman, you must read this book. If you are a man, you must read this book. If you work with young people, you must read this book. If you were ever young, you must read this book. Halse's high literary writing actually helps the flow of this story, rather than bogging it down in too much profundity, the way other ...

Life As We Knew It
Harcourt Children's Books, 2005
Review From Books & Wine
am in love with the post-apocalyptic dystopian genre. Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer is a fine piece of YA post-apocalyptica. Life As We Knew It takes the format of a journal written by Miranda who is sixteen and living a super-normal life until in the space of a single day, everything changes. Before going any further with this review, I should probably let you know I read this during ...
The Feeling Good Handbook
David D. Burns
Great introduction to CBT for consumers and pros.
I read this book as a person with social anxiety disorder and as a professional psychotherapist. This is one of the few books that speaks to both. I used the written work to help overcome and live with my shyness. It also has a chapter on how to use CBT with challenging clients.
The Feelings Book: The Care & Keeping of Your Emotions (American Girl)
Dr. Lynda Madison
American Girl Publishing Inc
A good book for parents too.
Being a dad, this book makes it easy to approach some subjects that are awkward for girls to hear from a dad. Read it as a parent. It's approach will simplify some subjects that dumbfound you. I tend to complicate what I say, when my child doesn't want or need to hear all of my words. Plus, American girl books are designed to let a girl read on her own and be alone with her thoughts, so I just ...
Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy Revised and Updated
David D. Burns
Excellent and Workable
An excellent read on C.B.T. Although I do not take the same position as it's author (i.e. ruling out Conventional Psychology altogether). I found his approach extremely helpful and workable.
Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR), 2007
A shining example of children's lit and a captivating tale
I decided to finally read this book after my mother, a 5th grade teacher, told me it was her class' next read-aloud. I just cannot believe that none of my own upper elementary school teachers ever selected this as a class novel! I'm so glad I finally had a chance to read this one...to me, it is the perfect example of what good children's literature should be. It is superbly written, full of ...
The Kind Diet: A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet
Love this cookbook! Saw this author on Oprah & was very impressed with her ideas. Borrowed the book from the library 1st & then knew I had to have it. Like the layout of the cookbook & all the helpful suggestions to becoming vegan
What to Do When You Worry Too Much: A Kid's Guide to Overcoming Anxiety (What to Do Guides for Kids)
A wonderfully helpful book
My 10yr old son started having anxiety issues following a long bout with illness. We did contact the local counseling center, but it was going to take 4 weeks to see the therapist (we live in a very rural area). We got this book hoping to find some way to help him deal with his worry. It made all the difference in the world. We would work on it a little at a time each day, and he would practice ...
Beat Sugar Addiction Now!: The Cutting-Edge Program That Cures Your Type of Sugar Addiction and Puts You on ...
Jacob Teitelbaum M.D.
Fair Winds Press
Changed the way I look at food
This book has changed the way I look at food, and I am pretty excited about it. I am ready to lose weight, to feel better and to have a better life. Having just finished reading it, I haven't started yet, but I have faith that I will. This is not an unrealistic plan and there are no specific weight loss goals or promises. Nowhere in this book does he say "You will lose 30 pounds in the first ...
The Kissing Hand
Perfect for a child's first school days
The Kissing Hand is a story that I share with my preschoolers and their parents the first day of school. I encourage them to share a "kissing hand" with Mom or Dad, especially when they might be a little sad as they leave for school each day.
Snuggle Puppy (Boynton on Board)

My Son Loves this Book
This is one of my sons favorite books. He gets so excited when we start reading it to him.
The Giving Tree 40th Anniversary Edition Book with CD
JUST LOVED THIS BOOK!
WHAT A WONDERFUL STORY FOR LITTLE CHILDREN AND BIG ONES AS WELL. I CAN'T WAIT TO SHARE IT WITH MY GRANDCHILDREN. A VERY SPECIAL STORY.
Emotions Revealed, Second Edition: Recognizing Faces and Feelings to Improve Communication and Emotional Life
Paul Ekman Ph.D.
This book contains very useful information and should not be glanced over lightly. Though the information is presented and backed up in a scientific manner, it still does not detract from the overall usefulness of this book.
The Lemonade War
Great Cross Curricular Book
This would be a great book for cross curricular work in math and literature in upper elementary classrooms. A fun read with lots of great material to work with.
Have You Filled a Bucket Today: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids
Great even for the "big kids"
I love this book. I have read it with my older students (4th/5th graders so roughly 10-12 years old) and they still ask me if they can borrow it to read during reading time. The message is simple and that's what I think appeals to these children. All too often in today's world, children are NOT taught about respect at home and bullying is out of control in many schools. This book has helped my ...
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
Great book for adults, too!
This is one of the best kids' books *ever.* I have also given Alexander's story to adult friends who were going through trying times... this book is a great way to show some support for a friend. (Assuming, of course, that the friend's trials and tribulations are not in fact life-threatening!)
Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!
Here is what my first graders have to say about the book
This book is by, Mo Willems the best author ever to me. I like the part when the Pigeon said "hhmph!" It reminds me about me, I always ask for things. Its HILARIOUS!!! Outside the Pigeon kept asking to drive the bus and the watcher said, "NO!" Written by, Noah age 6 In the book Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by, Mo Willems is an awesome book! Read this book first graders. The Pigeon ...
Llama Llama Red Pajama
This book is awesome!
I was reading some of the 1 star reviews and I think it's a little bit wacky for those parents to say that this book sends a bad message. It's a fantastic book and it's very clever. My children know it word for word and they think it's funny. Every parent gets busy at sometime or another when a child wants something. We can not be at their beck and call 24/7! It's important for a child to ...
