The Window Blind. Caterina Cammino is an attractive and reclusive thirty-five-year-old woman whose nightly ritual is to go to the beach and drink wine from the bar of her car. Though alcohol is her crutch and companion, it can't erase the memory of the summer of 1988 when she lost her innocence--and awoke to a scream. Tyler Beck is an intellectually gifted eighteen-year-old loner who has an invisible, magical cord above his right shoulder; he is also a former drug addict who was rehabilitated with the help of a counselor named Robie. After Robie dies, however, a distraught Beck exits his friend's funeral and seeks refuge at the beach—and in heroin. Their lives collide when Caterina's car strikes a trashcan that crashes into the semi-conscious Beck. When they both ask aloud for help, the grieving parts of themselves are transported to another dimension called 10-17. Caterina arrives in this dimension as her seventeen-year-old self, Cat, and there she meets Beck, whom she nicknames Ty. Once in this new world, set against a backdrop of Italy, they meet a Watcher named Miranda who tells them that they are in 10-17 for healing, even while their parallel lives are continuing on Earth. Miranda explains that the dimensions are spaced like slats on a window blind; she also tells the teenagers about a place called Thare, an Earth-like dimension populated by humans, but without suffering or addiction. While Beck readily embraces his love for the mature Caterina, she is conflicted over her feelings for a man half her age. Meanwhile, in Dimension 10-17, as Cat and Ty complete their lesson, they are torn over the choice that Miranda offers them: To go to the "perfect" world of Thare and leave the Earth and their families behind, or to return wholly to their Earthly selves...

Metacognitive Approaches To Developing Oracy. The acquisition of speech and language represent significant achievements for all children. These aspects of child development have received substantial attention in the research literature and a considerable body of theoretical knowledge exists to chart progress from infancy to maturity. Cross-cultural studies have identified the common purposes served by the acquisition of oral language by children, and the essential similarity in the sequence through which speech develops irrespective of geography and culture. What is less clear is precisely ‘how’ children learn to say what they mean and ‘how’ teachers and parents can support and enhance the development of meaningful speech in their children. Until now, children’s speech has been underused as a means of promoting learning in the formal school setting. New requirements within the National Curriculum are trying to address this gap, but there remains a lack of clarity as to what this means for practice, and how it relates to the broad base of curricular objectives. This book brings together a body of work, from different countries; it offers an improved understanding of how strategies for developing speaking and listening may impact metacognitive awareness, and raise standards of literacy and dialogic thinking for all children. This book was previously published as a special issue of Early Child Development and Care.

Toronto Island Summers. At this distance in time, the world of young people growing up in the fifties and sixties seems impossibly idyllic. Boys and girls roamed free, baseball and bicycles were the top summer activities, and no one worried about whether occasional hot dogs and french fries were healthy. Of all the places to spend a summer at a cottage, camp or lake, nowhere was as exotic as Toronto Island. Only a short ferry ride from the downtown, it was a world apart. Several hundred Toronto families had their summer vacation homes on the island. But the place also boasted a kind of midway, a beach that attracted exotic daytime visitors from the city, yacht clubs and fishermen. In this memoir, lifelong Torontonian Jim Sanderson takes readers back to the idyllic summers he spent at his family's cottage on the island in the 1950s and 1960s. For Jim and the other island kids, the woods, beaches and lagoons of the island were their playground. They camped in the woods, defended their beaches from the visiting "city slickers" and fished for the elusive, mythical Golden Carp in the lagoons. Jim Sanderson's experiences will echo those of any other Canadian who grew up in the same era, but with the special perspective of a young person on Toronto Island in the 1950s and 1960s, and on the nuances of the city's awkward relationship with the great recreational resource that the Toronto Island represents. With informal snapshot photos from Island residents of the period that illustrate the exquisite pleasures of island life, Toronto Island Summers takes readers back to a simpler time when nature, family and friendship reigned supreme.

Books In Motion. Librarians and educators can shake up storytimes, help children stay healthy, and encourage a lifelong love of reading with Dietzel-Glair’s easy-to-use resource. Demonstrating exactly how to use children’s books to engage preschool-age children through movement, it’s loaded with storytimes that will have children standing up tall, balancing as they pretend to walk across a bridge, or even flying around the room like an airplane. Presenting hundreds of ideas, this all-in-one book is divided into six sections: “Art” spotlights titles that are natural hooks for art or craft activities alongside ideas on how to create art just like the character in the story, while an appendix includes art patterns that can be used as coloring sheets; “Games” includes searching games, follow-the-leader games, and guessing games to enhance the books in this section; “Movement” features books that kids can jump, stomp, clap, chomp, waddle, parade, wiggle, and stretch with; “Music” chooses books perfect for activities like shaking a maraca, singing, dancing between the pages, and creating new sound effects; “Playacting” lets kids pretend along with the characters in these books, whether it’s washing their face, swimming with fish, or hunting a lion; “Props” encourages storytime leaders to bring out their puppets, flannelboard pieces, and scarves—these books have enough props for everyone in the program to have a part. Each chapter includes as much instruction as possible for a wide range of motions. Pick and choose the amount of movement that is right for your storytime crowd, or do it all!
