Postcards from Here

By Guisinger, Penny

Melbourne: Vine Leaves Press, 2016-02-16. Paperback. Very Good. light edge wear; "Postcards from Here" is a capturing of a community, a harsh and beautiful place, a family, and the internal experience of its author in the form of micro-essays. The book takes on the realities of rural New England life, the moments and details that stitch a community together, the politics of being gay and divorced in such a place, and the visceral details of raising children, gardening, porcupines, travel, marriage, and other hazards of living. Written in a coastal community at the eastern edge of the United States, this book works to transcend the Maine depicted on touristy postcards by crafting missives its rural residents might really send-what true stories this place and its people have to tell. The individual pieces in "Postcards" tell stories that are both intensely personal and entirely communal in scope, and as a collection they create a portrait of one person's attempt to do a good job at this business of being human.

Time-In: When Time-Out Doesn't Work

By Clarke, Jean Illsley

Seattle: Parenting Press, 1999-01-01. Paperback. Very Good. light edge wear; Arguing that what children need most from their relationships with the adults in their lives is connection and trust, Time-In provides a process for "getting through" to children. The approach teaches children how to be competent, to think, and to succeed by using four tools--Ask, Act, Attend, and Amend--that can be put together like interchangeable pieces of a puzzle. Parents can use these tools when they want their children to listen and think (the parent asks), change their behavior in a positive way (the parent acts), pay attention to what they or others need (the parent attends), or right a wrong that they have done (the child amends). This parenting approach is useful for preventing many behavioral problems characteristic of children from ages 1 to 12.
