Abstract
Dr Leora Kuttner, an award-winning filmmaker and an international expert in pediatric pain management, brings a ground-breaking and comprehensive look at the emerging field of pediatric palliative care.
At the film's heart are five remarkable young people who speak with profound clarity and wisdom about being alive and their approach to death. Layering their stories with interviews, the film is a unique portrait of how families and professionals can come together during a highly emotional time to share in decision making, address fears of death and provide hope.

Abstract
At some point, children become curious about babies. This usually happens when a new baby arrives in a family (or is about to arrive and all the grown-ups are talking about it). But it can happen at other times, too.
Children want to know where babies come from in general. They also want to know, specifically, where they came from. These aren't the same question, and they don't have the same answer.
One answer articulates the unique story of their conception and birth, while the other offers the basics of how all human beings are born. Both stories are valuable. The first connects a child to their personal life history as well as their familial, cultural, and ethnic background. The second connects all children to each other; reminding us that while differences are important, and shouldn't be erased, shared humanity is a pretty cool thing, too.
This book helps adults tell children that second story. It doesn't include information about sexual intercourse, donor insemination, fertility treatments, surrogacy, or adoption. But it creates a space for you to share as few or as many of those details as you like.
Few adults are automatically comfortable talking about these things with children. For this reason, I've developed a simple reader's guide for parents. You can download it for free at www.what-makes-a-baby.com.

Abstract
This guide provides tools for parents to ensure that their child becomes a proficient reader and writer, and allows parents to make informed decisions regarding hearing aids, cochlear implants, speechreading, and sign communication. They also will discover how to create environments at home and in their community for fostering their child's literacy, especially in school by learning how to work closely with teachers. The book refers throughout to the developmental link between American Sign Language and English literacy for children who use sign communication.

Abstract
This A Lion in the House program shows the enormous burden that cancer puts on any family. It also brings to light the particular impact on families headed by single parents, uninsured or underinsured families, and people in communities where resources are scarce and support is difficult to obtain. Cultural and socioeconomic differences can increase the barriers that families face while they grapple with the physical and emotional tornado of childhood cancer. It reveals the work lives of dedicated healthcare providers and educators struggling to address the enormous needs of young patients, families and other caregivers.

His teacher tries to help him be red (let's draw strawberries!), his mother tries to help him be red by sending him out on a playdate with a yellow classmate (go draw a nice orange!), and the scissors try to help him be red by snipping his label so that he has room to breathe. But Red is miserable. He just can't be red, no matter how hard he tries! Finally, a brand-new friend offers a brand-new perspective, and Red discovers what readers have known all along. He's blue! This funny, heartwarming, colorful picture book about finding the courage to be true to your inner self can be read on multiple levels, and it offers something for everyone.

Abstract
Pregnancy and childbirth are a happy and joyous time for some women, but for others the experience can be one of anxiety, fear, and confusion. Because our society cherishes pregnancy and motherhood, many women suffer in silence when their experience is anything less than sublime. How do they explain their unhappiness to spouses, friends, and family, and how can they know if what they are experiencing are the normal mood fluctuations of pregnancy, or symptoms of a more serious problem? In this book, Dr. Shaila Misri, an expert on the psychology of pregnancy and postpartum, offers specific advice on the wide range of emotional issues that come with parenthood, including the more serious emotional disorders that often cloud a pregnancy and the early days of motherhood. For example, she discusses the serious but very common problem of postpartum depression, showing women how to distinguish between normal postpartum blues and clinical depression and explaining how and when they should get professional help.
