Paperback      ISBN: 1611800536
Raise happy, confident, and resilient children--engaging activities that explore the life lessons that make for a well-rounded upbringing. As our children journey into adolescence, their social worlds begin to expand. While we can’t protect them from what other people say or do, or paint them a picture of a perfect world, we can teach them how to handle themselves and difficult situations from the inside out. Teens and tweens crave more autonomy, but they need guidance more than ever. By equipping children with a variety of methods for dealing with different scenarios, we can give them the tools they need to navigate through life. This book offers insights, practical advice, and concrete activities that will serve children well as they begin to find their way independently in the world, while at the same time helping parents to provide them with scaffolding to be safe, happy, and successful. With chapters that focus on: · cultivating positive qualities such as gratitude, courage, integrity, and generosity · understanding health and nutrition · mastering simple etiquette · connecting with others, resolving conflict, and empathy · exploring fiscal responsibility · best practices for social media and navigating the digital world · and more! Through hands-on projects, vivid graphic printables, and interactive activities, Real-Life Rules brings the whole family to the table, offering opportunities to explore, discuss, and experience both the concrete and abstract concepts that are critical for living a meaningful, thoughtful life.

A Worker's Fight
Hardcover      ISBN: 1419728547
Undocumented is the story of immigrant workers who have come to the United States without papers. Every day, these men and women join the work force and contribute positively to society. The story is told via the ancient Mixtec codex—accordion fold—format. Juan grew up in Mexico working in the fields to help provide for his family. Struggling for money, Juan crosses over into the United States and becomes an undocumented worker, living in a poor neighborhood, working hard to survive. Though he is able to get a job as a busboy at a restaurant, he is severely undercompensated—he receives less than half of the minimum wage! Risking his boss reporting him to the authorities for not having proper resident papers, Juan risks everything and stands up for himself and the rest of the community.

Rad Girls Can
Stories of Bold, Brave, and Brilliant Young Women
Hardcover      ISBN: 0399581103
From the New York Times best-selling authors of Rad Women Worldwide and Rad American Women A-Z, a bold and brave collection of stories and art about inspiring and accomplished girls who have made positive impacts on the world before the age of 20. You might know the stories of Malala Yousafzai, Anne Frank, Jazz Jennings, and Joan of Arc. But have you heard about Yusra Mardini, a Syrian refugee who swam a sinking boat to shore, saved twenty lives, then went on to compete as an Olympic swimmer? Or Trisha Prabhu, who invented an anti-cyberbullying app at age 13? Or Barbara Rose Johns, whose high school protest helped spark the civil rights movement? In Rad Girls Can, you'll learn about a diverse group of young women who are living rad lives, whether excelling in male-dominated sports like boxing, rock climbing, or skateboarding; speaking out against injustice and discrimination; expressing themselves through dance, writing, and music; or advocating for girls around the world. Each profile is paired with the dynamic paper-cut art that made the authors' first two books New York Times best sellers. Featuring both contemporary and historical figures, Rad Girls Can offers hope, inspiration, and motivation to readers of all ages and genders.
