EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Family is about love no matter how different parents and children may be, adopted or not. Choco wishes he had a mother, but who could she be? He sets off to find her, asking all kinds of animals, but he doesn't meet anyone who looks just like him. He doesn't even think of asking Mrs. Bear if she's his mother-but then she starts to do just the things a mommy might do. And when she brings him home, he meets her other children-a piglet, a hippo, and an alligator-and learns that families can come in all shapes and sizes and still fit together. Keiko Kasza's twist on the "Are you my mother?" theme has become one of the most highly recommended stories about adoption for children.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

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.

What Kids Need Most In A Mom
Author: Patricia H. Rushford
Publisher: Spire
Release Date: 2002
Pages: 208
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

What do kids really need in a mom? As you anticipated motherhood, you may have had great expectations of being energetic, patient, organized, seldom frazzled-a supermom of sorts. But then reality hit. What Kids Need Most in a Mom offers encouragement and help for being your best on even not-so-super days. You'll learn to evaluate what's really important in life and find creative ideas for sharing your discoveries with your children. You'll begin to focus on such essentials as: * trusting your life-and your kids-to God's care * instilling forgiveness in your children * getting out of the guilt factory * growing with your children With humor, honesty, and hope, Patricia Rushford, a mother and grandmother, shares memorable stories and practical advice from her many years of experience. She puts the supermom ideal in its proper category-fiction-and instead guides you to be a real mom who is content to make the most of the love, talents, responsibilities, gifts, and frailties you have been given.
