Young children are curious about almost everything, especially their bodies. And young children are not afraid to ask questions. What makes me a girl? What makes me a boy? Why are some parts of girls' and boys' bodies the same and why are some parts different? How was I made? Where do babies come from? Is it true that a stork brings babies to mommies and daddies? IT'S NOT THE STORK! helps answer these endless and perfectly normal questions that preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary school children ask about how they began. Through lively, comfortable language and sensitive, engaging artwork, Robie H. Harris and Michael Emberley address readers in a reassuring way, mindful of a child's healthy desire for straightforward information. Two irresistible cartoon characters, a curious bird and a squeamish bee, provide comic relief and give voice to the full range of emotions and reactions children may experience while learning about their amazing bodies. Vetted and approved by science, health, and child development experts, the information is up-to-date, age-appropriate, and scientifically accurate, and always aimed at helping kids feel proud, knowledgeable, and comfortable about their own bodies, about how they were born, and about the family they are part of.

✏The Stone Girl Book Summary : She feels like a creature out of a fairy tale; a girl who discovers that her bones are really made out of stone, that her skin is really as thin as glass, that her hair is brittle as straw, that her tears have dried up so that she cries only salt. Maybe that's why it doesn't hurt when she presses hard enough to begin bleeding: it doesn't hurt, because she's not real anymore. Sethie Weiss is hungry, a mean, angry kind of hunger that feels like a piece of glass in her belly. She’s managed to get down to 111 pounds and knows that with a little more hard work—a few more meals skipped, a few more snacks vomited away—she can force the number on the scale even lower. She will work on her body the same way she worked to get her perfect grades, to finish her college applications early, to get her first kiss from Shaw, the boy she loves, the boy who isn’t quite her boyfriend. Sethie will not allow herself one slip, not one bad day, not one break in concentration. Her body is there for her to work on when everything and everyone else—her best friend, her schoolwork, and Shaw—are gone. From critically acclaimed writer Alyssa B. Sheinmel comes an unflinching and unparalleled portrayal of one girl’s withdrawal, until she is sinking like a stone into her own illness, her own loneliness—her own self.

✏The Family Book Summary : The Marottas were the quintessential family; Joe and Janet were model parents; their children popular and full of life. Danny was handsome and funny, the All American kid. Diane was the tomboy, able to hold her own in back yard games or the back seat of a car. David was serious and quiet. Yet the three, so different, were a close-knit, inseparable group. The entire family fed on one another, sharing love, respect and a dry wit that spared no one. When Danny is killed in an automobile accident, the family goes into shock. Family bonds, once so strong, seem strained. Janet tries to pull them all back together, planning a retirement party for Joe. The story takes place over the next three days, as each member of the family brings their problems back home into the comforting crucible of tender, sharing love, hoping to heal and resolve. The unfolding drama is witnessed by the imprisoned soul of Danny, confined to the physical boundaries of the Marotta home, unable to do anything but watch and listen. He tells the story from his perspective, recounting events and characters, espousing his folksy philosophy, wondering how he can help those he loves so dearly. Filled with drama, comedy and characters that delight and amuse, "The Family" is a warm, funny tale of happiness, trauma and renewed hope. It is a timely story, replete with the unique problems of life's passages, a story that transcends death, where a family misplaces, then rediscovers, the very essence of life itself, indestructible love.
