Mom Jokes Book Excerpt:

Mom needs some humor in her life...even though being a super-mom is serious business! Moms need their laughs just as much as anyone, especially when they have to relieve the stress of cranky kids, oblivious spouses, and the challenges of balancing work and family while keeping it all together—at least on the surface! Mom Jokes is a collection of more than 300 snarky, sassy, and witty jokes for moms, such as... Every Mother’s Day my children make me breakfast in bed. Good thing I taught them how to make bottomless mimosas. Q: What’s the difference between me when I’m nine months pregnant and a supermodel? A: Nothing, because my husband values his life. The good thing about going back to work after having kids is that you have your mom boss voice perfected. I thought my 7-year-old was mature enough to feed our goldfish—and he is—he just isn’t mature enough to know they don’t eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. From family life and the daily grind to food and entertainment, these one-liners, puns, lists, and real-life tweets will be appreciated by moms everywhere.

The Girl Who Wrote Loneliness A Novel Book Excerpt:

The highly anticipated release of the most personal novel by Kyung-Sook Shin, who first burst on to the literary scene with the New York Times bestseller, Please Look After Mom. Homesick and alone, a teen-aged girl has just arrived in Seoul to work in a factory. Her family, still in the countryside, is too impoverished to keep sending her to school, so she works long, sun-less days on a stereo-assembly line, struggling through night school every evening in order to achieve her dream of becoming a writer. Korea’s brightest literary star sets this complex and nuanced coming-of-age story against the backdrop of Korea’s industrial sweatshops of the 1970’s and takes on the extreme exploitation, oppression, and urbanization that helped catapult Korea’s economy out of the ashes of war. But it was girls like Shin’s heroine who formed the bottom of Seoul’s rapidly changing social hierarchy, forgotten and ignored. Richly autobiographical, The Girl Who Wrote Loneliness lays bare the conflict and confusion Shin faces as she confronts her past and the sweeping social change of the past half-century. Cited in Korea as one of the most important literary novels of the decade, this novel cements Shin’s legacy as one of the most insightful and exciting writers of her generation.

Passed Down From Mom Book Excerpt:

All mothers hear this: "Tell me a story." The greatest stories they have to share are the ones about being mothers. Mothers have lessons to share with their children, their friends, spouses and even strangers. This collection of short stories is told from the viewpoint of more than a dozen different mothers from all backgrounds: they were born in different countries, with different traditions, different paths to motherhood, and different advice. The common theme they all share is their motherhood. The stories include: •Birthing from the Heart, the adoption memory of Alison Rand; •A Love Letter to My Daughter about becoming a mother for the first time, by Brita Moe; •All Little Ants Need Their Mother, about Valerie Nifora's Greek immigrant mother and a world of possibilities; •Creando Una Casa, Nancy Brooker's memories of the food and smells of her Italian mother's home; •Share, where a medical diagnosis gifted Cori Edwards with her mother's stories of growing up; •Motherhood Awakens Divine Power, Intuition and Consciousness, where Whitney Mullings transforms her family from the rigor of her Chinese roots to something that nurtures them all; and more. The advice of these authors works for new moms and mothers ready to share their memories alike; they cover topics like adoption, blended families, immigration stories, and post-partum depression. The stories inside touch on acceptance, worthiness, struggle, triumph, love, family and peace. Whether you are a mother yourself or have a strong bond with your own mother, the memories within this collection will resonate with you and inspire you.

Three Quarters Two Dimes and a Nickel Book Excerpt:

What would you do if you were seventeen years old and broke your neck? It's tough enough to stand on the verge of adulthood without the extra burden of not being able to stand at all. Steve Fiffer had his whole life ahead of him in December 1967 when he fractured his fifth cervical vertebra in a wrestling accident at school, shattering his dreams. The diagnosis was quadriplegia, and his parents were told that he would never walk again. Steve, however, was not content to accept such a fate. He had always been taught that he was a leader, not a follower, and he was not going to take this news lying down. Within five months he was out of the hospital, within seven he was on crutches, and within nine he was beginning his freshman year at Yale University. And most remarkable of all, he never lost his wisecracking sense of humor or his hunger for all that life has to offer. Three Quarters, Two Dimes, and a Nickel is Steve Fiffer's story of his coming of age, and of how he created a normal life for himself despite his injury. Steve refused to be consumed or defined by his physical condition; he may not be a dollar bill, he explains, but he's still "three quarters, two dimes, and a nickel." His battle to come back from his injury casts into sharp relief the drama of becoming an adult and wrestling with issues of identity, relationships, and ambition. We join him around the dinner table as he rebuilds his once-distant relationship with his father and gains a new appreciation of their bond; we agonize with him as he tries to find true love (or at least lose his virginity) despite his self-consciousness about his physical awkwardness, and we join him at the Lawson YMCA in downtown Chicago, where he rebuilds his body under the watchful eye of the manic physical-fitness coach Dick Woit, a retired football star who puts Steve through a sort of boot camp to raise his sights even higher and propel him off his crutches for good. Part guru, part drill instructor, Woit helps Steve to develop the mental toughness to put the injury behind him and to embrace adulthood and all its responsibilities. By turns poignant, darkly comic, and ultimately triumphant, Three Quarters, Two Dimes, and a Nickel is an affirmation of how the ordinary joys of life can win out even in extraordinary circumstances.

Teaching Kids to Be Kind Book Excerpt:

A simple and sweet parenting book with 365 tips—a new one to try every day! As a parent, you want the best for your child, and one of your greatest hopes is that your child will grow up to be a good person. So, what makes a good person? Generally, we think about good people as being kind: those who are compassionate, empathetic, generous. However, it seems that, in our fast-paced, individual-driven society, kindness is fading and the pressure on parents to raise socially conscious, empathetic, and caring children can seem overwhelming at times. In Teaching Kids to Be Kind, Rachel Tomlinson draws from her professional experiences to provide 365 inspiring strategies to help children and families practice kindness every day of the year. Daily tips include: Taking your child shopping around the holidays to select a new toy to donate to another little boy or girl their age. Leaving little notes in their lunch box or school bag for them to find. This models unconditional love and consideration for others. Baking a cake together to teach patience and teamwork and build on their ability to delay gratification. An essential tool for parents, Teaching Kids to Be Kind will help children develop empathy, regulate their emotions, and improve their general well-being as well as support families in strengthening their overall relationships.

Adult Conversation Book Excerpt:

April is a thoughtful yet sarcastic mother of two who tries her best to be a caring, connected mom in a middle-class culture where motherhood has become relentless. April rages at modern motherhood’s impossible pressures, her husband’s “Dad privilege,” and her kids’ incessant snack requests. She wants to enjoy motherhood, but her idealist vision and lived experience are in constant conflict with one another. Is she broken—or is motherhood? Desperate for an answer, she seeks out a therapist, and lands with an unexpected woman whose validation and wisdom gives April the clarity to reclaim herself and even start designing clothes—her pre-motherhood passion. But when the ever-elusive babysitter cancels last-minute, April finds herself back at square one. She seeks guidance, but her therapist is now dealing with her own crumbling marriage—and instead of counseling April, she convinces her to speed off to Las Vegas with her to help catch her husband cheating. With a little weed, alcohol, and topless pool hopping, plus a male stripper and some much-needed autonomy, the two find lost pieces of themselves that motherhood swallowed up. But neither one is prepared for how tested—and tempted—they will be, or for the life-altering choices their journey will force them to make. Who is guiding whom anymore?

This book is actually a sentinel of love. The cacophonous chatter, sharing of experiences, lessons learnt by each other all so robustly, so patiently developed this fetish for writing of this mother and daughter duo. How we envision our children carrying on with a legacy or a leisure and see them beautifully reciprocate the same is a miracle which is so heart warming. Hope that the words and the feelings strike a chord with everyone who reads them. The poems are on diverse virtues and experiences which in turn revolute to form this big gamut of life. In a world full of words this is our attempt from the heart to bring forth a pandora of contradictions. Happy reading to each one of you.
