Review: I bought this book a couple of weeks ago and I am reading a page a day to my girls age 3 and 6. They both love it and my 3yr old keeps bringing it to me saying "don't forget to read the next page in the 'big' book today" (the book isn't actually 'big'). I wanted something that might help my 3yr old learn right from wrong - to share, not to cry over nothing etc. The pictures are what really brings it to life for my children. There is lots happening in each picture, a number of ladybirds to find and then we look for things that begin with that pages letter. F is for forgiving and my dd(6) finds 'frog, fish, fire engine, fireman, first aid and flippers' For my dd(3), I say can you find a frog? f is for frog. Can you find a fireman? f is for fireman etc so it is helping her to start thinking about the sound at the beginning of words. A is for Asking, B is for behave, C is for crying, D is for doing, E is for everyone, F is for forgiving, G is for God, H is for helping, I is for illness, J is for joyful, K is for kindness, L is for lying, M is for messy, N is for nice, O is for obey, P is for polite, Q is for quarrel, R is for resting, S is for singing, T is for thankful, U is for unselfish, V is for visitors, W is for worship, X is for xylophone, Y is for yelling, Z is for zebra. I would say this book is for boys and girls aged 3-7 years. I also bought "God's Wisdom for Little Girls" by Elizabeth George. My dd(6) loves this book and has chosen it for reading at bedtime 3 out of 4 nights since I first read it to her. I read the whole book to her. I haven't read it to dd(3) yet feeling it more for when she's a little older.

Review: I was a bit disappointed with this book. It's a nice concept, looking at a word/theme for each letter of the alphabet, but I feel it could have been executed much better. Having really enjoyed another book by the same author (Everything a Child Should Know About God) I was expecting good things. However, the problem with this one is that it's more focussed on teaching morals and good behaviour than on teaching and applying God's word. Each chapter includes a Bible verse, but often that's the only mention of God or the Bible on the page. This is a little frustrating, because in many cases there are obvious things that could be drawn from the Bible to reinforce what's being taught. As a result, I often felt the need while reading it to expand on what was written so that we could refocus on the Gospel and what the Bible has to say about the topic. Having said all of that, there are several things I really liked about the book. The full-page illustrations are very appealing and full of detail - both my girls loved them and would happily pore over them and talk about them for ages. It's also a great book for including younger kids, because the language is simple and there are easy questions for them to engage with. Just a shame the content was lacking!

    Description: You are not your thoughts! In this powerful book, two anxiety experts offer proven-effective cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) skills to help you get unstuck from disturbing thoughts, overcome the shame these thoughts can bring, and reduce your anxiety. If you suffer from unwanted, intrusive, frightening, or even disturbing thoughts, you might worry about what these thoughts mean about you. Thoughts can seem like messages-are they trying to tell you something? But the truth is that they are just thoughts, and they don't necessarily mean anything. Sane and good people have them. If you are someone who is plagued by thoughts you don't want-thoughts that scare you, or thoughts you can't tell anyone-this book may change your life. In this compassionate guide, you'll discover the different kinds of disturbing thoughts, myths that surround your thoughts, and how your brain has a tendency to get stuck in a cycle of unwanted rumination. You'll also learn why common techniques to get rid of these thoughts can backfire. And finally, you'll learn powerful cognitive behavioral skills to help you cope with and move beyond your thoughts, so you can focus on living the life you want. Your thoughts will still occur, but you will be better able to cope with them-without dread, guilt, or shame. If you have unwanted thoughts, you should remember that you aren't alone. In fact, there are millions of people just like you-good people who have awful thoughts, gentle people with violent thoughts, and sane people with crazy thoughts. This book will show you how to move past your thoughts so you can reclaim your life!.

    Price: £12.99

    Brand: HarperCollins Publishers

     

    Description: Following the bestselling publication of THE KENNETH WILLIAMS DIARIES, the devastating self-portrait of one of our most loved and complex performers is completed with this marvellous selection of his letters. This is a wonderful treasure trove of correspondence with all manner of people, including Alec Guinness, Maggie Smith, Joe Orton, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, and the Stokers' Mess of HMS Leverton. Kenneth Williams took letters very seriously, and he was always disgusted by a morning that failed to provide him with some material to pore over. Letters called forth the performer in Williams in a way that his diaries never did: many of them are virtual comic monologues, and in general they suggest more strongly than the diaries the likeable and constructive side of a man who remains, nevertheless, as outrageous and 'difficult' as ever.
