Abstract
The moment when Patty Dann's husband was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, she felt as though the ground had dropped beneath her. Her grief, however, was immediately interrupted by the realization that she would have to tell their three-year-old son, Jake, that his father was dying. The prognosis gave her husband just a year to live. In that short time, the three of them--Patty, Willem, and Jake--would have to find a way to live with the illness and prepare for his death.
Written with disarming honesty, courage, and humor, Patty weaves together a series of vignettes that chart her--and Jake's--eventual acceptance of their new family. What links these vignettes is their coping with the daily challenges, the sorrow, and the uncertainty, as well as embracing the surprising moments of beauty and acceptance. As much about exploring memory as it is about appreciating the moment, this captivating narrative will serve as a genuine comfort for anyone surprised by grief. (From the Publisher)

Abstract
Thinksheets for Tweens and Teens focuses on the social issues and challenges faced by pre-adolescents and adolescents and introduces social concepts and strategies that can help individuals navigate these tricky years. Social rules and expectations change with age; thinking and behavior that was appropriate in elementary school can quickly become inappropriate and unexpected as students move into middle and high school. We developed these Thinksheets to help educators, therapists, and parents encourage more mature social thinking and related shifts in their students? social skills. The Thinksheets explore a wide range of topics, starting with the basic Social Thinking understanding of the Four Steps of Communication, to exploring the hidden rules of the classroom and when is it okay to correct others. Chapters include What Is Social Communication?, Problem Solving, Lessons on Emotions, Different Perspectives, Being Bossy and Jerky, Lessons on Friendships, The Social Fake and Other Tricks, and Participating in Groups. There are more than 160 Thinksheets across these 8 sections, and all are included on the Mac/PC friendly CD that comes with the book. Material in this book may be used by older students who are less mature or who learn this type of information more slowly.
