Summary: Read Pam Allyn's posts on the Penguin Blog The books to read aloud to children at the important moments in their lives. In What to Read When, award-winning educator Pam Allyn celebrates the power of reading aloud with children. In many ways, books provide the first opportunity for children to begin to reflectively engage with and understand the world around them. Not only can parents entertain their child and convey the beauty of language through books, they can also share their values and create lasting connections. Here, Allyn offers parents and caregivers essential advice on choosing appropriate titles for their children—taking into account a child’s age, attention ability, gender, and interests— along with techniques for reading aloud effectively. But what sets this book apart is the extraordinary, annotated list of more than three hundred titles suitable for the pivotal moments in a child’s life. With category themes ranging from friendship and journeys to thankfulness, separations, silliness, and spirituality, What to Read When is a one-of-a-kind guide to how parents can best inspire children through reading together. In addition, Pam Allyn includes an indispensable “Reader’s Ladder” section, with recommendations for children at every stage from birth to age ten. With the author’s warm and engaging voice throughout, discussion questions to encourage in-depth conversations, as well as advice on helping kids make the transition to independent reading, this book will help shape thoughtful, creative, and curious children, imparting a love of reading that will last a lifetime.

Summary: About the Book Dipak read to father and his wife Karabi, the Calcutta morning newspaper, which said: Third day after the classic fight at Listowel, Canada, Dr. Sanat Roy was on his deathbed after the fight. Helen was also injured badly. There is no trace of them in the local hospital. Nobody knows if Dr. Roy is dead or alive. This Indo-Canadian is a brilliant, strange man. People last heard about him nearly two years ago when he suddenly left the company he built to a large, most successful technology company in North America. Since then, he totally vanished from the public eye. It is now confirmed that Dr. Roy is the famous best-selling novelist Loner, the pen name he used. He also established, expanded, and supported alone an ashram in Delhi for young, helpless girls to stand on their own feet. He also supported two orphanages in Calcutta. He donated large sums of money to medical research in Canadian hospitals. People are surprised how this man, without any work, was getting over a million dollars for philanthropy alone. People are puzzled that a devoted family man like Dr. Roy was with Helen, an unknown, white Canadian woman at the time of the fight instead of his own Indian wife. This Indo-Canadian laid down his life to protect Helen from being gang-raped by the motorcycle gang without considering his own Indian family. Reporters are vigorously investigating the private life of this talented, enigmatic Indian from a Calcutta affluent family. Dipak put the paper down and closed his eyes. Father went quietly to his room. Karabi, wiping her tearful eyes with her saree, went to her bedroom. Dipak pondered, I may not see my beloved Dada (elder brother) again. Everybody loves him so deeply. This story, A Man of Two Countries, casts light on the exciting private life of Dr. Sanat Roy, who made people love him even with all his faults.

Summary: Description Barsteadworth College is a book about workplace bullying, the damage it causes and institutional suppression of the truth about both. Workplace bullying is a hot contemporary topic. It crops up in conversations between friends and colleagues and not infrequently in the television, radio and print media. It can often seem that everyone has either been bullied at work or knows someone who has. However, cases where a victim of workplace bullying has taken on 'the system' and won are few and, because of this, are big news when they happen. This is due in no small part to the routine use of 'gagging clauses' in 'compromise agreements', which bring to a close the one-sided battles that take place between bullied employees and their employers/managers. Victimised employees can find themselves placed in situations where they have no alternative but to resign and then contractually prohibited from speaking about their experiences by the agreement that terminates their employment. Thus, it is ensured that the extent of the kind of abuses described in this book remains hidden and that one of the routine social sicknesses of our time and the knock-on actual sicknesses that result stay largely invisible and unchallenged. The author, Dr Stephen Riley, has experienced workplace bullying and its damaging consequences firsthand and, like many, he is prohibited from speaking by a 'compromise agreement'. In Barsteadworth College he therefore uses fiction as means of describing and analysing the issues: Dr Dan Ripley, a Fine Art Lecturer, moves from Manchester and takes a job at a provincial art college in the south of England. After a time, a new manager arrives and starts to appoint friends and family and to create preferential working conditions for herself and her clique. Those outside of the clique - Dan and two others - are then subjected to a wide range of undermining activities from their line-manager, including staged public humiliations at meetings, unmanageable workloads and endlessly contradictory instructions. The book describes the gradual corrosive effects of the bullying: fatigue, loss of confidence, confusion and then depression. It then describes what happens when Dan complains: the college's managers close ranks and connive with the bullying line-manager to discredit the allegations, eliminate evidence and vilify the complainant. Ultimately, Barsteadworth College is an appeal to law and policy makers to address the current situation, which is hopelessly skewed in favour of workplace bullies and against their victims and, within this, to address the question of how, when suitable policies are in place, institutions can be made to adhere to them and be answerable if they do not. About the Author Stephen Riley b.1955 is an artist, lecturer and writer. He grew up in a former cotton mill town on the eastern fringes of Greater Manchester, where the conurbation meets the Pennines. He left school at 16 and worked for several years as an engineer in Manchester and Bristol, before returning to education as a mature student to study fine art. He studied in Manchester, Exeter and Canterbury before completing a doctorate at Leeds University. Convinced of the liberating qualities of both art and education, he wanted to share his knowledge and enthusiasm with others: young people and others who, like himself, had rediscovered education as mature students. In consequence, as well as working as a practicing, exhibiting artist, he became a fine art lecturer. He taught in colleges/university colleges in Kent, Greater Manchester and Yorkshire, before taking a post at a provincial art school in the south of England. Here he was a well respected employee and colleague, and a highly regarded Lecturer, Acting Course Director and Senior Lecturer, until the arrival of a new manager brought about a change in his fortunes. Ultimately, facing stress-related mental health problems, he had to resign his post in circumstances th

Summary: This two-book set contains the “Mopsies Twin Set”—A Lady of Resources and A Lady of Spirit, an edition of over 140,000 words. You can choose your friends, but you cannot choose your family … or can you? Under normal circumstances, sixteen-year-old twins Maggie and Lizzie would be delighted to meet their long-lost relatives and be reunited with those who had believed them dead, but when are the Mopsies’ circumstances ever to be considered normal? They are joyfully ready to embrace family and welcome them into the loyal circle that the Lady of Devices, Claire Trevelyan, has created from a formerly ragtag lot of alley mice. But the more time the Mopsies spend in Lizzie’s father’s castle in the Cotswolds and then their grandparents’ clifftop mansion in Cornwall, the more they realize that the events surrounding their mothers’ deaths are more mysterious—and dangerous—than anyone alive suspects. Worse, the events of the past are still reaching out to trigger the dangers of the present, and only a lady of resources and a lady of spirit may stand between the people they love … and certain death.

Summary: Book 6 in the Magnificent Devices steampunk series! You can choose your friends, but you cannot choose your family … or can you? Under normal circumstances, Maggie and Lizzie would be delighted to meet their long-lost relatives and be reunited with those who had believed them dead, but when are the Mopsies’ circumstances ever normal? With her half-brother Claude Seacombe, Lizzie travels to Cornwall to meet her mother’s parents. Maggie goes along, too, since she is part of the family … or so one might assume. But the more time she spends in her grandparents’ clifftop mansion, the more she realizes that something is not right, and the events surrounding her own mother’s death are more mysterious—and dangerous—than anyone alive suspects. For an old nemesis is preying on the weak and proud, and she cannot stand by and watch. Maggie must straighten her spine, plunge into danger for Lizzie’s sake … and prove that no matter the name she bears, she is first and foremost what the Lady of Devices believes her to be … a lady of spirit. “Another excellent book in an excellent series. The world is wacky and immense fun, the stories exciting and all well written and well paced (and with chickens for even more fun). But the backbone of this great series is and has always been the characters—their issues, their layers, their complexity, their solid relationships and loyalties all elevate a good book to a really great one.” —Fangs for the Fantasy, on A Lady of Spirit

Summary: Frustrated by a regime of statutory testing, and keen for a midlife adventure, Sue Cowley and her partner decided to step out of the system, and set off on the educational adventure of a lifetime with their children. Road School is the story of their family’s adventures around Europe and across China, and what they learned along the way. Part comedy travelogue, part parenting guide, part educational philosophy, Road School asks you to consider what ‘an education’ really means and offers tips for anyone planning their own learning adventure. As a parent in the UK, you must make sure that your child has a full time education, once they are of compulsory school age. However, this education does not have to take place in a school. A growing number of parents are finding that home educating, or ‘unschooling’, either permanently or on a short term basis, is a viable and attractive option. The national curriculum, benchmark tests and exams serve to reinforce the idea that there is a specific set of knowledge which equates to ‘an education’. However, when you are home educating, it is entirely up to you what and how you wish to teach your children. Or, rather, what and how you wish your children to learn. You might choose to include part or everything that is in the national curriculum, or you might not. Sue’s family found that one of the best things about Road School was the freedom to follow their interests. Sue offers plenty of advice based on the lessons her family learned on their Road School adventure, such as: take into account how learning can happen simply by visiting a place and exploring it. Don’t feel that you always have to formalise your visit by turning it into a ‘lesson’. The experience of going somewhere can be memorable and educational in its own right. Much of what your children will learn on the road is social and emotional rather than intellectual. They learn how to cope, how to adapt, how to be resilient and how to be brave. The challenges and difficulties that you face on the road will teach them all these things without any direct ‘teaching’ needed at all. Involve your children in making decisions about the content of their curriculum, particularly when it comes to choosing topics or themes. What would they most like to study during your learning journey together? You can teach subjects such as English or history through cross-curricular ‘themes’ rather than as discrete lessons. Ask your children to decide which topics interest them the most and capitalise on those. One of the great things about educating your child yourself is that you get to learn alongside them. Not only do you provide a model of lifelong learning, but it’s also very liberating to learn new things as an adult. Remember that teaching is not the same thing as learning. You don’t have to teach your children directly for a set number of hours each day in order to educate them. Learning can take place all the time, and anywhere, rather than just during ‘school’ hours. It doesn’t matter what time of the day or day of the week it is – if there is learning happening, then your child is being educated. Contents include: England, English Lessons, Stepping Out of the System, The Netherlands, Dutch Lessons, The Practicalities, Germany, German Lessons, Cultural Literacy, Italy, Italian Lessons, An Education, Portugal, Portuguese Lessons, Travelling with Children, France, French Lessons, Pussycat Parenting, China, Chinese Lessons, A Road School Curriculum.

Summary: There are 49 yarns in my book starting with The Discovery of Australia then a few taken from my life experiences in the bush and at sea drifting into occasional brief yarns sparked by our history and through the second World War with a few Aboriginal yarns for good measure. In some, the names have been replaced to avoid embarrassment, but all are basically true. My life has been a kaleidoscope of experiences. I became first a beekeeper, then a drover leading to stock dealing and then into cattle and sheep stations in various partnerships. I was a stock and station agent and auctioneer for about 40 years in my own right while running the properties and charter boats, and twice owned motion picture theatres. I reckon I must have married too often to accumulate, as each wife now has at least one house, and or farm while I live in a rental?
