Abstract
This video modeling DVD features real life social situations reenacted by children. This video recognizes that in order to be socially successful, children must learn to notice and "read" the social cues and messages that people use to communicate. Fitting In and Having Fun aims to stimulate a child's perception of social situations by visually showing them how to decode and interpret information from others. It also helps them to be more aware of their own body language and the messages they are sending. The target viewer is an elementary school-aged child who is ready to learn about the intricacies of social interactions. Social interactions are broken down, showing both the negative and positive consequences of how a child interacts and responds in social settings. As the child becomes aware of other people's perspectives, they can learn what to do differently to affect a better outcome. The social situations reviewed in the tape are: Being a tattletale; Dealing with disappointment; Taking a joke too far; Starting a conversation; Accepting help; Being bossy; Knowing when to end a conversation; Accepting criticism; Interrupting; Taking turns speaking in a conversation; Talking too loud; Embarrassing situations; and Dares.

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
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.
