Everyday Goodbyes Book Excerpt:

Separation often evokes feelings of fear and anxiety in all of us, children, parents, and teachers alike. Because the success or failure of early separation experiences can affect a child's movement toward independence, teachers and parents must know how to help young children cope with the unpleasant feelings sometimes associated with separation. In Everyday Goodbyes (her follow-up to Starting School: From Separation to Independence), Nancy Balaban once again addresses this critical aspect of child development. Emphasizing the need for parents and teachers to work together in phasing children into a child-care, preschool, or kindergarten program, she offers many sensitive, practical suggestions to ease the separation process for all involved. Positioning separation as the underlying curriculum for all early childhood programs, this wonderful book helps teachers and parents to understand why children take time to adjust. Photographs and real-life anecdotes of children, teachers, and parents illustrate all aspects of the adjustment process, and activities for the classroom that support children''s movement toward independence and self-confidence are included.

What to Read When Book Excerpt:

Read Pam Allyn's posts on the Penguin Blog The books to read aloud to children at the important moments in their lives. In What to Read When, award-winning educator Pam Allyn celebrates the power of reading aloud with children. In many ways, books provide the first opportunity for children to begin to reflectively engage with and understand the world around them. Not only can parents entertain their child and convey the beauty of language through books, they can also share their values and create lasting connections. Here, Allyn offers parents and caregivers essential advice on choosing appropriate titles for their children—taking into account a child’s age, attention ability, gender, and interests— along with techniques for reading aloud effectively. But what sets this book apart is the extraordinary, annotated list of more than three hundred titles suitable for the pivotal moments in a child’s life. With category themes ranging from friendship and journeys to thankfulness, separations, silliness, and spirituality, What to Read When is a one-of-a-kind guide to how parents can best inspire children through reading together. In addition, Pam Allyn includes an indispensable “Reader’s Ladder” section, with recommendations for children at every stage from birth to age ten. With the author’s warm and engaging voice throughout, discussion questions to encourage in-depth conversations, as well as advice on helping kids make the transition to independent reading, this book will help shape thoughtful, creative, and curious children, imparting a love of reading that will last a lifetime.

The Splendor of Seeing and the Magic of Touch Book Excerpt:

Lately, I have been re-acquainting myself with the writings of Rich Alapack through his latest books -- Love's Pivotal Relationships, Sorrow's Profiles, and White Hot True Blue. These reminded me of the lucid beauty of Alapack's writing style and of the deep and penetrating insights that he shares with his reader. I recognize myself and others in the vignettes these books provide, and have been incorporating his texts into my recent graduate classes. Alapack's writings mark a return to the original form in which phenomenologists used to communicate with their readers: via straightforward reflection; drawing upon a lifetime of experience; speaking in simple, descriptive language; and capturing the essence of human experience by mastering the art of speaking truthfully and authentically. It takes a certain kind of free-courageousness to engage in such writing today, in an intellectual climate where demands for methodological rigor (in the form of operationalism run amok) have compromised manuscripts submitted for review, in favor of half-hearted statements of methodological orthodoxy followed by statements of "findings" that amount to little more than summaries of raw data. What Alapack has achieved in his recent writings, and especially in his latest venture, The Splendor of Seeing and the Magic of Touch, is a truth-speaking both from the author's heart and from his lifetime of authentic dialogue with the interlocutors he has found along his own life's journey. The gift that he gives to his reader is the gift of inviting us to join him on his own path to enlightenment. Scott D Churchill, PhD Professor and Graduate Program Director University of Dallas Editor-in-Chief, The Humanistic Psychologist "This book is heart-warming, joyful, and insightfully brilliant. This author's newest publication, once again, represents a heart-felt and dedicated effort to researching human phenomena from the laboratory of day-today life. In this lifelong work, the author shares many of his personal experiences, experiences of others, then invites us to share a developmental journey through monumental experiences in our childhood, adolescence and young adulthood. He delves into important developmental topics that are rarely, if ever, discussed in mainstream psychological writing. Dr. Alapack offers reflected insight into these experiences, in a playful yet profound manner, allowing us to gain a deeper understanding of who we are, as perfectly imperfect people. Exploring the dynamics of peekaboo with a young-one, playing tag as a juvenile, sharing the exhilarating and/or bitter-sweet memories of the first kiss, barely coping with or perhaps flaunting a teenage hickey, will have you smiling with fondness, as you are reminded of your own experiences. These personal stories and parables are timeless and ageless. This text should be mandatory reading for both students and researchers in developmental psychology. Parents and Educators will find this book personally enriching, and will ultimately benefit from a more in- depth understanding of themselves and their children. I have seen Dr. Alapack's work grow and expand over the years, and this book is a shining example of an existential phenomenologist par excellence. His dedicated work has had a major and significant impact on my personal and professional life." Paul Watters, B.A., B.Ed., M.Ed. M.Ed., Lambton Kent District School Board, Sarnia, Ontario, Canada

Not Kissing Nick Book Excerpt:

HE’S ALWAYS WANTED HER. Nick Tyler had done the noble thing twenty years ago by pushing Robin Patton away when she’d been a teenager with a crush on an older man. Then life had taken them in different directions. But Robin is back in Masterson now. As gorgeous, tempting and intriguing as ever. Nick is never going to survive. WOW. SOME MEN SERIOUSLY GOT BETTER WITH AGE… Nick Tyler is definitely one of them. After one week working with him Robin came up with a plan. No touching Nick, no falling for Nick, and definitely no kissing Nick. It just isn’t safe. Besides, Robin is far too busy raising three kids on her own to even think about a relationship with a man like Nick...right? But staying away from him is just so hard to do. She is doing good at resisting temptation—until one day at work…when there is a knock on the door. A social worker stands there—holding the hand of a little girl. A little girl who is all alone now. A little girl with Tyler blue eyes, and the word daddy on her lips. Uh-oh. Robin knows exactly what's about to happen... HE HAS A DAUGHTER HE DOESN’T KNOW. He’d been robbed of six years of his daughter’s life—he hadn’t even known she’d existed. But Nick has her with him now, where she belongs. Seeing Nick's determination to be the best father he can be has Robin falling even harder. Changing her plans. Just a little. Because someone needs to help him. And it is going to be her. But somehow helping Nick just keeps turning into kissing Nick. And Robin doesn't want to stop...
