Danyelle wanted me to let my readers know this...
"One thing I want to emphasize with our book is that it's not only for LDS congregations. There are sections of it that answer LDS specific questions - such as baptism, callings, and going to the temple. But the core of the book how to adapt lessons and teach individuals with special needs in a general church classroom setting & developing good communication between church leaders and families are all applicable to any church denomination. Lynn & I are also willing to meet with any church's leadership to teach these skills and answer questions."
This book will be such a valuable resource for all people who work with special needs children in a special setting, such as church.
The next author I want to you meet is Jane Still. She has
written a book called, "Mother's Daze". The title made me laugh so hard when I first read it. There are so many days, I really feel like I am in a daze trying to be a good Mom.
Here is what it says on the back cover:
"The perfect Mother's Day book is finally here! This witty take on what it means to be a mother will leave you with aching sides and a full heart. From the exciting and awkward changes of pregnancy to the quirky ups and downs of adjusting to a new baby, Mother's Daze is full of humorous stories and everyday realities that mothers of all ages will relate to. Author Jane Isfeld Still uses her own mothering experience and her frank wit to celebrate the honest-to-goodness truth about the most difficult-and greatest-job on earth. This hilarious book won't fail to leave you laughing. "
I love to read humorous books about being a Mom. I need to realize that I should laugh more while mothering my kids and that it does not have to be serious all of the time. Jane's book will leave you smiling and able to take a deep breath. Some times we take ourselves too seriously and have to have everything perfect; perfect house, perfect children and perfect "you". This is not realistic and this book points out that this is OK.
Here are some of the chapter titles:
-An Eye for Discipline
-It's Not in My Head
-The Miracle of Birth and
-Keep the Guilt and Pass the Chocolate(I think that this chapter will be my favorite!)
Mother's Daze will be released by Cedarfort publishing, on March 8th, 2010. Pick up a copy for yourself as well as one for a friend, sister, neighbor etc.
Every day I find something else new that I want to read in 2010. I wish that I had more time to post about all of the books. I will still try to blog about them when I can.
FYI...Earlier, I had reported the title I had heard(The Victors) that supposedly was being given to the new Hunger Games book. Well, the official title is out and the 3rd Hunger Games book will be called....The Mockingjay. The release date is still the same and you will be able to read the new book on August 24th. I can't wait to read this book!! Are you team Peeta or Team Gale?
