Abstract
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.

Abstract
Being harassed at school, targeted while using the Internet, or left alone at home are realities for many middle schoolers. This program empowers students to feel confident in their ability to protect themselves in the face of violent behavior they may encounter. It shows students how being assertive, developing a personal safety plan, and trusting their instincts can help them avoid victimization and stay safe. Combining real teens' stories with advice from violence prevention experts, program teaches students how to: go to and from school safely; prevent theft of personal property at school; avoid a physical fight; handle a bully; deal with sexual harassment; be safe when home alone; use the internet safely.
Reproducible student handouts reinforce practical skills and strategies. Program ends with the message that if students are victimized, it is never their fault.

Abstract
Shane Burcaw was born with a rare disease called spinal muscular atrophy, which hinders his muscles? growth. As a result, his body hasn?t grown bigger and stronger as he?s gotten older―it?s gotten smaller and weaker instead. This hasn?t stopped him from doing the things he enjoys (like eating pizza and playing sports and video games) with the people he loves, but it does mean that he routinely relies on his friends and family for help with everything from brushing his teeth to rolling over in bed.

Abstract
There is a lot of misinformation thrown around these days, especially online. Headlines tell us to do this, not that---all in the name of living longer, better, thinner, younger. In Hype, Dr. Nina Shapiro distinguishes between the falsehoods and the evidence-backed truth. In her work at Harvard and UCLA, with more than twenty years of experience in both clinical and academic medicine, she helps patients make important health decisions everyday. She?s bringing those lessons to life here with a blend of science and personal stories to discuss her dramatic new definition of ?a healthy life.?
