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.
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.

Complicating matters even further was the very real possibility her son's father was none other than Ryan McCall—her sworn enemy. Suddenly a string of suspicious—and near-fatal—accidents proved that Delaney and her son were in terrible danger. And the only man she could trust to help her uncover the truth was the very same man who was strictly off-limits. And now, in a race against time, could Delaney and Ryan combat danger—and their stormy past—before it was too late?

Is there balance in the world, a recompense in which the victimizer becomes the victim and visa versa? Tivoli and Tamara Nolan, identical twins, offer an answer to this question. An Uncommon Bond has allusions to the connection between the psychic world and the everyday world as we know it. But it is full of action, of the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, and of the romance of young love betrayed. It spans California, Japan, Rome, Paris, London and other fascinating places while the intensity of the story builds, making it impossible not to turn the pages. It is only in the world beyond death that Tivoli comes to confront the lives she has destroyed. More unforgivable than any other is the damage done to her twin, the other part of her. It is her obligation then to restore the self-confidence of which she has robbed Tamara. Her means of doing this employs the machinations of the psychic world and the workings of reincarnation to bring the twins to karmic harmony.

She’s a force to be reckoned with… Marisol Medina is all about the hustle. Reporting for duty with a shiny new business degree, she’s not only the first Medina to go to college, she’s also the knight in shining hoops that literally everyone is counting on to take their struggling family bar and turn it into the profitable taqueria of their dreams. Why? Because tacos and tequila solve everything. Obviously. There’s just one problem. She’s hit a snag. A big, sexy, bearded, six-foot-plus snag. This isn’t how he’d planned on getting her attention… Sy Ransom, owner of Symon Says Sweets, ran out of room in his bakery about two seconds after he opened it. He needs to expand, and putting in an offer for the empty building next door seems like a win-win situation. He’ll be able to double his size without having to leave the location he’s come to love. The building isn’t technically on the market, but he figures it won’t hurt to ask, right? Wrong. He is so wrong. The result…a Mexican standoff. Now locked in a bidding war, his thriving bakery and her family’s struggling taco shop are contracted to cater the town’s most anticipated anniversary shindig. Can they keep things professional or will the oven mitts come off once the lime wedges come out?
