This warm, large-format picture book will help the youngest child understand what sexual abuse is, what it is not, and what children can do to keep themselves safe from assault. Structured as a personal conversation with her reader, the book shares Jane Porett's experience as an adult survivor of child sexual abuse. She writes of her feelings of powerlessness, isolation, and shame after being abused, yet, at the same time, hers is a very positive message. When I Was Little Like You will help children learn to say """"NO!"""" to their abuser, and to learn that some secrets should never be kept, but told to a trusted adult. The skillful drawings complement the book's calm and non-threatening style. For children aged 4 to 8.

THE SILENT SCREAM As an early teenager, Sharon moved with her family to a part of the country not far from where she had grown up, but culturally, it was a million miles away. She endured the hardships of not being accepted in school or in the community and then one day she realized that she was a stranger in her own family. Sharon tried to reason whether her parents had always been that way or if they had been coerced into accepting a strange way of life. They had become treasonous enemies against her very soul. Eventually she was forced to change, or become, a good actor in order to survive to adulthood. She “felt confused not knowing what to do or where to go, she was only sixteen...” Thinking she would endure a loveless marriage and build a normal life for herself, she made mistakes. She had no intention of letting the children she bore become a product of that destructive environment - she would flee one way or another. Later in life, thousands of miles away, she encountered even greater challenges than she had experienced in the place from which she had escaped Relative power governed the world of her teens. A turn to politics showed her another world of falsehoods. Greed, money, and the search for truth ruled her life as an adult. There was no winning; no life of normalcy - until the truth finally set her free. Like following a true compass, she found her refuge and learned that success is a journey not a destination.

AS A CHILD I WAS SOMEWHAT aware of the differences between colored life and white life but it was not so much based on race, I thought is was just the way it was. I lived in the ghetto and white children lived in the suburbs. I'd seen the way they lived when a gang of us would take our shovels and ride the bus to the suburbs to shovel snow for a quarter a yard. Beautiful houses and yards and white kids who didn't have to shovel, just watched us from their windows do the work. The differences were magnified when we saw television and especially the commercials where white women dressed in bright clothes just to mop the beautiful floors in their beautiful homes, or stand at the door and wave goodbye to their men going off to work in suits and ties and wide brimmed felt hats. I thought the most beautiful houses in the world were those houses we shoveled snow from the 200 feet driveways in Shaker Heights. The houses, mansions, were huge white siding mansions with black Shutters on the windows; maybe one hundred windows, or so it seemed. The roofs were black asphalt shingles which set the house off even more than the dozens of trees, mostly pine, around the property. The lawns were so big you could play Hide the paddle, or It and never be found just hiding behind those massive trees. The grass, yes grass, in the yards looked like it had been carpeted with each blade the same height. In the winter the grass would be so white and pure looking you would think it was painted by Thomas Kinkade.

A wonderfully imaginative and surprising debut novel about the inexorable approach of modernity. "Imagine the time of my grandfather's grandfather, when the darkness was newly separated from the light. Society was only a shadowy image of what it would soon become. This was Mandragora before my invention and all that it set in motion."-from The Testament of Yves Gundron So begins Yves Gundron's account of the strange events to befall Mandragora. It is a desperate, primitive place-plowing was only recently introduced, candles do not exist, and the inhabitants know no number larger than twenty. Nevertheless, there was little conflict before Yves's invention-the harness-irrevocably transformed the Mandragorans' lives. Yves's manuscript, which bears witness to these changes, appears to have been prepared for publication by an academic named Ruth Blum. But what at first seems a historical document proves to be something else entirely. Yves's brother, Mandrik le Chouchou, the town mystic, regales his fellow villagers with exotic tales of his travels to "Indochina." And when Yves recalls the words of a song that is recognizably a blues lyric, we know that either Ruth Blum is up to something or Mandragora is not what it seems. In this playful and adventurous debut, Emily Barton explores the two-edged sword of technology, asking what is lost in our fervent pursuit of modernity.
