'[A] pacy, frictionless read' Sunday Telegraph 'Cinematic. . . an entertaining and persuasive study of the royal family' Publisher's Weekly 'Patterson treats the princess as a person and tells the story from a mother's perspective' Kirkus ______________________________ Twenty-five years after her tragic death, James Patterson tells the heartbreaking true story of Princess Diana's life as a mother and a global icon. At the age of thirteen, she became Lady Diana Spencer. At twenty, Princess of Wales. At twenty-one, she earned her most important title: Mother. As she fell in love, first with Prince Charles and then with her sons, William and Harry, the world fell in love with the young royal family - Diana most of all. With one son destined to be King and one needing to find his own way, she taught them lessons about royal tradition and also real life. 'William and Harry will be properly prepared,' Diana once promised. 'I am making sure of this.' Even after her tragic death, the strength of her love for her sons remains an enduring inspiration, not only for the two princes, but for the entire world. ______________________________ Praise for James Patterson 'The master storyteller of our times' Hillary Rodham Clinton 'One of the greatest storytellers of all time' Patricia Cornwell 'Truly astonishing' Bob Woodward

James Patterson by James Patterson Book Excerpt:

“It's quite a life, Patterson's, and this fizzing, funny, often deeply moving memoir is a perfect way to understand the dizzying world of a best-selling writer." —Daily Mail “Damn near addictive. I loved it . . . that Patterson guy can write!” –Ron Howard THE INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER—How did a kid whose dad lived in the poorhouse become the most successful storyteller in the world? On the morning he was born, he nearly died. His dad grew up in the Pogey– the Newburgh, New York, poorhouse. He worked at a mental hospital in Massachusetts, where he met the singer James Taylor and the poet Robert Lowell. While he toiled in advertising hell, James wrote the ad jingle line “I’m a Toys ‘R’ Us Kid.” He once watched James Baldwin and Norman Mailer square off to trade punches at a party. He’s only been in love twice. Both times are amazing. Dolly Parton once sang “Happy Birthday” to James over the phone. She calls him J.J., for Jimmy James. How did a boy from small-town New York become the world’s most successful writer? How does he do it? He has always wanted to write the kind of novel that would be read and reread so many times that the binding breaks and the book literally falls apart. As he says, “I’m still working on that one.” James Patterson by James Patterson is the most anticipated memoir of 2022.

Why Dogs Hump and Bees Get Depressed Book Excerpt:

In 2009, Marc Bekoff was asked to write on animal emotions for Psychology Today. Some 500 popular, jargon-free essays later, the field of anthrozoology — the study of human-animal relationships — has grown exponentially, as have scientific data showing how smart and emotional nonhuman animals are. Here Bekoff offers selected essays that showcase the fascinating cognitive abilities of other animals as well as their empathy, compassion, grief, humor, joy, and love. Humpback whales protect gray whales from orca attacks, combat dogs and other animals suffer from PTSD, and chickens, rats, and mice display empathy. This collection is both an updated sequel to Bekoff’s popular book The Emotional Lives of Animals and a call to begin the important work of “rewilding” ourselves and changing the way we treat other animals.

TEACH YOUR CHILD TO READ WITH MOVEMENT FUN GAMES Book Excerpt:

This unique reading programme has been developed after many years of working as an Occupational Therapist with children with Dyslexia, Attention Deficit (ADHD) and other reading and learning difficulties. It has been designed specifically for easy use by parents, grandparents and au-pairs, providing a progressive series of games which are fun to play and which take your child developmentally through the stages of learning to read. It can also be used by teachers and remedial teachers as a supplement to their usual lessons because it follows the correct developmental stages of reading. A major difference between this programme and many other programmes for reading is the emphasis on movement, rhythm and rhyme. Parents are often surprised that I encourage movement when teaching reading foundations. They are also usually pleased that at last they can stop the fight of trying to keep their child sitting still and focussing quietly while trying to practise his reading. Movement is fundamental to this programme and rhythm and rhyme are intrinsically linked to movement. The section on vestibular processing explains why I have found this to be so necessary and yet overlooked when teaching reading. In the introduction, I give the reader a brief overview of the underlying principles that have informed my approach. I also help the reader identify the developmental foundations that children need in order to begin to learn to read and understand how each developmental step prepares the way for the next. This is not an in-depth academic diatribe on neuro-development; it is an overview designed to inform and empower the reader to be able to get the best out of the programme. Indeed, I have found that when I empower parents this way, they usually go away to return with even better, more creative ideas and their children progress so much faster. Reading does not begin with the recognition of written letters and how they combine to make words. Children need to learn to become aware of sounds within words and to be able to separate sounds from each other. They need to be able to play with sounds. They also need to recognise shapes of letters and remember the sounds they represent. There is such a lot of learning that needs to be achieved before we can really begin a formal reading lesson. The games in this book start at the early developmental stage of learning to listen actively to the different constituent sounds in words and to play with the sounds of words. These early games can be played in the park or garden since no books are needed. Young children who are not yet ready to learn to recognise written words can play these games and develop a strong base on which to build writing and spelling. The games then continue to follow the development of the foundation skills needed for reading until the last section of games, where actual reading is introduced. When the children reach the section of reading text, it is presented in rhymes that they have already learnt. This not only builds their confidence but also helps them to read with natural flow and tone. The ability to recognise words in different fonts is also introduced at this stage. Each game is presented in easy to follow steps, like following a recipe. The main aim of the game is briefly described, followed by any equipment you might need and where you should play the game. Equipment is kept minimal and simple and most games are designed to be played in and around the home or garden. This makes it easy for parents and children to decide at any time to play a game, without much planning ahead. An illustration for each game makes it easier to find when paging through quickly and stimulates your child’s imagination and interest. At the end of the book a series of worksheets is presented. These are mostly lists of letters, phonic blends and words presented in large bold font and with some grading to develop your child’s ability to recognise letters and words in different fonts. T
