      These 10 beautifully-illustrated storybooks along with 10 practical guidebooks, (20 books in total), enable teachers, parents and professionals to help children aged 4-12 connect with unresolved feelings affecting their behaviour.

Helping Children Pursue Their Hopes and Dreams and A Pea Called Mildred. Helping Children Who Are Anxious or Obsessional and Willy and the Wobbly.

      HateSpeak in Contemporary Arabic Discourse

      by Author(s): Bahaa-eddin M. Mazid

      HateSpeak in Contemporary Arabic Discourse fills in an obvious gap in discourse studies on Arabic. After a detailed semantic and metaphorical account of hate in English and its equivalents in Arabic and an exploration of the causes of hate, the book illustrates major cases of hate and HateSpeak in contemporary Arabic discourse – Arabs vs. Israel, Sunnis vs. Shi’ites, Ahly vs. Zamalek, Egypt vs. Algeria, Men vs. Women, Rebel vs. Mainstream, and Sa’idi vs. Cairene. There is a separate section on HateSpeak in Arabic in the context of the revolutions in many Arab countries – the Arab Spring – with a focus on Egypt. The book contains a number of apt and interesting digressions on hate in general and hate in Arabic in particular, and a discussion of the issues involved in translating HateSpeak in Arabic. The ultimate goal is not to celebrate hate and HateSpeak, not to side with any party at the expense of another, but to provide a diagnosis followed by a number of remedies that may help convert HateSpeak into HeartSpeak.

      Global Youth

      Understanding Challenges, Identifying Solutions, Offering Hope

      by Editor(s): Karen Rice, Marc V. Felizzi

      Youth violence is not a unique phenomenon, and, in fact, youth have been plagued with challenges throughout the centuries that have placed them at risk of violent tendencies. These challenges include poverty, inadequate healthcare, limited educational opportunities, exploitation, gender inequality, substance abuse, mental health concerns, homelessness, gang involvement, and family dysfunction. Further, these challenges are not unique to youth within the United States; however, these experiences may differ in terms of chronicity, intensity, and impact. In all youth, these challenges create stress and trauma that compromise well-being. This book explores the challenges that youth experience, and provides context to better understand the factors related, and contributing, to those issues. The chapters describing realistic and practical violence prevention and remediation programs, which are both innovative and effective, are particularly unique. Additionally, there are a number of chapters that discuss the latest technological advances in helping young people, as well as evidence-based assessments and evaluations to help those who work with young people understand the needs of at-risk youth.

      Tara and the Talking Kitten Meet Angels and Fairies

      by Diana Cooper; Kate Shannon (illustrations)

      Ash-ting, the little grey kitten who can talk to Tara, is here to help her. But Tara needs more help than Ash-ting can offer when her unpleasant 'Uncle' Steve comes to stay. That is when her guardian angel steps in to protect her and her brother and sister. When her sister nearly drowns Tara learns about healing angels and how she can call on them. The angels also teach Tara that she has to take responsibility for her actions.Tara and her kitten Ash-ting discover that the huge old oak tree behind their home is to be cut down to make way for a road. They meet fairies, elves, pixies and imps and working together they find a way to save the tree.The story is written in a way that will help those children who have been abused recognise what has happened to them. It offers practical help and also introduces them to angels with the inspiration and assistance they can offer.The book will appeal to children aged 5-9 as well as parents and teachers. I absolutely adored "The Magical Adventures of Tara and the Talking Kitten", and "Tara and the Talking Kitten meet Angels and Fairies". Diana Cooper, with illustrator Kate Shannon, has done an amazing job! I read them aloud to my daughter and these books clearly helped her to understand the many ways that angels (and fairies!) can help us in our lives! She loved the characters including the magical talking kitten, the angels, the fairies and of course - Tara! by Adrienne Dumas, editor and creator of "The Faeries and Angels" Magazine

      Akosua and Osman

      by Manu Herbstein

      Akosua Annan is a confident and fiercely intelligent student at a posh school in Cape Coast, Ghana. There she comes under the influence of a charismatic feminist teacher. Osman Said’s background is very different. Upon the death of his parents, a police sergeant and an unschooled market trader, immigrants to Accra from the North, he is adopted by a retired school teacher, Hajia Zainab. After a spell as an apprentice in an auto workshop, he returns to school. There, finding the teaching inadequate, he becomes an avid reader and educates himself. Akosua and Osman are thrown together by chance in the course of a school visit to the slave dungeon at Cape Coast Castle. Their paths cross again as finalists in the national school debating competition where the subject is “The problem of poverty in Ghana is insoluble.” They meet for the third time as students at the University of Ghana and as we leave them, it looks as if their relationship might develop into something permanent. The friendship between Akosua and Osman is one that transcends differences of ethnic origin, class and religion. This story celebrates the diversity of Ghanaian society. “This fascinating novel tells the story of how these two young people from these disparate backgrounds are brought together as if by an unseen hand, in a process that teaches us about our history, our common humanity despite ethnic differences, the need to pursue our ambitions, the strength of human sexuality and the need for self-discipline, and, above all, the power of love.” The Judges, Burt Award for African Literature, 2011.

      The Game Master

      by Ian D Copsey

      What is it like to be someone else – especially your most hated enemy? Why do they think and do things differently? Tired of arguing over which of them was the best gamer, Josh and Alex stumbled upon a new video game shop, run by an enigmatic and amiable Japanese shopkeeper. He was to be their Game Master in this virtual reality video game that had no game controls. Little did they know it was a game that would change their lives, of their friends… and enemies… forever. “Oh! This game is no ordinary game,” The Game Master explained, “It reads your thoughts, seeks out your weaknesses to give challenges that are right just for you, the challenges you need to help you grow.” "It can read our minds?" puzzled the boys. As they progressed through the game’s levels they found out more about themselves and the lives of everyone around them. Mysteriously, the Game of Life began to spread its influence beyond Josh and Alex’s lives and to their friends. From Josh and Alex switching roles with each other in the game, campfire frolics and ghostly stories from their teachers, the boys learned more about their friends around them. The Game Master’s zany antics as he hosted a T.V. game show, “Hiro’s Happy Heroes” in the Game of Life, released a string of rib tickling gags, teases and tantalising tattles. The climax of the Game of Life came from the school Rube Goldberg challenge in which each grade had to join as a team to build their own whacky, madcap contraption. Would Josh and Alex be able to manage to get the two bullies in the class to work within the team? Patiently, with impish humour, the Game Master guides them through the different levels to a final intriguing twist.
