The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver – The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce, evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it—from garden seeds to Scripture—is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is a suspenseful epic of one family’s tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.


The novel is set against one of the most dramatic political chronicles of the twentieth century: the Congo’s fight for independence from Belgium, the murder of its first elected prime minister, the CIA coup to install his replacement, and the insidious progress of a world economic order that robs the fledgling African nation of its autonomy.

My Name is Not Easy by Debby Dahl Edwardson – My name is not easy. My name is hard like ocean ice grinding the shore . . . Luke knows his Iñupiaq name is full of sounds white people can’t say. So he leaves it behind when he and his brothers are sent to boarding school hundreds of miles away from their Arctic village. At Sacred Heart School, students—Eskimo, Indian, White—line up on different sides of the cafeteria like there’s some kind of war going on. Here, speaking Iñupiaq—or any native language—is forbidden. And Father Mullen, whose fury is like a force of nature, is ready to slap down those who disobey. Luke struggles to survive at Sacred Heart. But he’s not the only one. There’s smart-aleck Amiq, a daring leader— if he doesn’t self-destruct; Chickie, blond and freckled, a different kind of outsider; and small, quiet Junior, noticing everything and writing it all down. They each have their own story to tell. But once their separate stories come together, things at Sacred Heart School—and the wider world—will never be the same.

And more and more children are displaying behavior problems in schools and homes. An increasing number of preschool kids are coming to school with anti-social behavior including swearing, fighting and non-cooperation. Many teens are out of control, disrespectful and unhappy. 

Parents are responsible for shaping their child’s behavior from birth. Some parents find this quite difficult and they tend to give-up and give-in to their child’s desires and demands.

The Art of Perfect Bread Baking by June Kessler —  Making bread requires little more than your hands, an oven and patience.

It is like most things- easy when you know how, with practice making perfect. If we had to choose one single phrase that I feel is essential to bread making, it would be this; bread is alive, growing entity and, the product of it’s ingredients and surroundings; it responds to its environment- “treat the rising dough as if it were alive’’ While we advocate the use of scales, warmers and thermometers, remember that observation is the baker’s traditional tool. The more you make bread, the better your bread will be.
Healthy Breakfast Recipes for Kids by Ashlee Meadows – You might have heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but have you ever asked why that is? Breakfast has been touted by experts as the “fuel” necessary to start the day off on the right foot. Rather than just a saying, there is scientific proof that breakfast really does give our bodies and brains a kick-start. That is especially true for children. 

Numerous studies into the benefits of breakfast have made it clear that your child needs this valuable meal in order for the rest of the day to be productive. A good breakfast is proven to lead to higher test scores, better school attendance and better behavior, both in class and out. It also leads to much better overall nutrition and easier weight control. Making breakfast a habit means that your kids are much more likely to continue eating breakfast when they are older, and that means the benefits last well beyond the school years.
