Two basic facts serve as the foundation for this vital resource: children grieve many different losses, not just life-changing ones like death and divorce, and they need a variety of ways to express their grief. This informative book combines a description of the grieving process with directions for activities—from the traditional, such as ceremonies or letter writing, to those that allow kids to physically act out their grief—that help bereaved children. Trained counselor Laurie Kanyer explains the value of each activity so that parents and caregivers can select appropriate projects based on the child’s age, loss, and stage in the grieving process. She also discusses how learning about grief prepares children for new relationships to accept losses later in life.

Revealing the warm and astonishing story of an influential jazz legend, this personal narrative tells the story of a man’s journey from a Southern upbringing to a career touring the world to play for adoring fans. It tells how James Brown first discovered the Parker brothers—Melvin, the drummer, and Maceo on sax—in a band at a small North Carolina nightclub in 1963. Brown hired them both, but it was Maceo’s signature style that helped define Brown’s brand of funk, and the phrase “Maceo, I want you to blow!” became part of the lexicon of black music. A riveting story of musical education with frank and revelatory insights about George Clinton and others, this definitive autobiography arrives just in time to celebrate the 70th birthday of the author—one of the funkiest musicians alive—and will be enjoyed by jazz and funk aficionados alike.

A Beginner's Guide to 3D Printing is the perfect resource for those who would like to experiment with 3D design and manufacturing, but have little or no technical experience with the standard software. Author Mike Rigsby leads readers step-by-step through 15 simple toy projects, each illustrated with screen caps of Autodesk 123D Design, the most common free 3D software available. The projects are later described using Sketchup, another free popular software package. Beginning with basics projects that will take longer to print than design, readers are then given instruction on more advanced toys, including a baking-powder submarine, a train with expandable track, a multipiece airplane, a rubber band-powered car, and a noise-making push toy with froggy eyes. Once trained in the basics of computer-aided design, readers will be able to embark on even more elaborate projects of their own creation.

The saga of McCrae’s Battalion brings much-needed human scale to World War I and explains why a group of young men from a small country with almost no direct connection to the conflict would end up sacrificing their careers, their homes, their health, and in many cases their lives to an abstract cause.</div>

<DIV>This novel, first published in 1896, is the story of Dick Perrot, born and bred in the Jago; but it is also a brilliant portrait of the community. The Jago is a London slum where crime and violence are the only way of life, and from which there is no escape for the inhabitants. Only the characters themselves are fictional: Morrison's descriptions of the fearful physical conditions are based directly on what he saw. He conjures up an extraordinarily vivid picture of a world which, even as he wrote, was about to vanish in one of the first of the slum clearance schemes.</DIV>

Published May 1997

People in a prayer circle may live next door, or they may live thousands of miles apart, but when they pray together they form a soulful connection that defies distance. They may be Christians, Jews, Buddhists, they may pray for peace, health, and well-being, for friends and for complete strangers; they may have come together through a crisis, a life-change, an illness, a new relationship, but they come together to support each other through prayer. This book of true stories examines the power of collective praying, and how it can transform forever the lives of those bound together in the common experience of meditation or praying.

Published Apr 2020

New York, 1872, was a city convulsing with social upheaval and sexual revolution seven years after the Civil War. As the year began, the New York Times headlined four stories that symptomized the decay in public morals the editors so frequently decried: financier Jim Fisk was gunned down in a love triangle; suffragist and free love advocate Victoria Woodhull was running for president; vice hunter Anthony Comstock battled smut dealers poisoning children's minds; and abortionists were thriving—and killing. Through the year these stories intertwined in ways unimaginable, pulling in others famous and infamous—suffragists Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Brooklyn's beloved preacher Henry Ward Beecher, the nation's richest tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt, and William Howe, preeminent counsel to the criminal element. Through the lives of these larger-than-life characters, the issues of the day played out—rigged elections, everyday shootings, attacks on the press, sexual impropriety, reproductive rights, the chasm between rich and poor—issues that resonate today. Political parties split over a bitterly contested election, suffragist battled suffragist over bettering women's place in society, and pious saints fought soulless sinners, until at year-end this jumble of conflicts exploded in the greatest sensation of the nineteenth century.
