Philip Nel takes a fascinating look into the key aspects of Seuss's career - his poetry, politics, art, marketing, and place in the popular imagination." "Nel argues convincingly that Dr. Seuss is one of the most influential poets in America. His nonsense verse, like that of Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear, has changed language itself, giving us new words like "nerd." And Seuss's famously loopy artistic style - what Nel terms an "energetic cartoon surrealism" - has been equally important, inspiring artists like filmmaker Tim Burton and illustrator Lane Smith. --from back cover

The New York Times bestselling author of My Sunshine Away returns with a captivating, quirky, and poignant novel about a mysterious machine that upends a small Louisiana town. What would you do if you knew your life's potential? That's the question facing the town of Deerfield, Louisiana, when a surprising machine appears in their local grocery store. Resembling a simple photo booth, the machine, sponsored by the company DNAMIX, promises to tell participants their potential in life, what their body and mind are capable of doing, all based on the science of their DNA. All it takes is a quick swab of the cheek and two dollars to know what you could have been if everything worked out just so. With just enough credibility to make the townspeople curious, the machine quickly enraptures nearly all of Deerfield, with surprising results. Soon enough, lives are upended based on the promise and possibility of one word: Olympian, Carpenter, Lover, Driver, Magician; bearing no mind that most of them have little to no life experience or talent to explain such a calling. Among them are Douglas Hubbard, the high school history teacher who, at 40, has hit a wall in life; his wife, Cherilyn, who never thought to dream of more; Jacob Richieu, the son of the town mayor living in his dead brother's shadow; and even Father Pete, the local priest connected to the townspeople in unexpected ways. Deeply moving and full of heartwarming eccentricity, The Big Door Prize explores the ways in which the glimmer of possibility can bring a community together, pull it apart, and reveal the power of self-discovery and second chances, even under the strangest of circumstances.

What is prejudice in the 21st Century and how can education help to reduce it? This original text discusses prejudice in detail, offering a clear analysis of research and theory on prejudice and prejudice reduction, drawn from findings in social psychology, critical thinking and education. Presenting the underlying principle that prejudice can be reduced through the development of four core attributes – empathy, understanding, cognitive flexibility and metacognitive thought – the book offers effective educational strategies for preparing young people for life. Chapters explore a range of examples of classroom practice and provide a thorough engagement with the minefield of prejudice, set against challenging sociological, ideological, political and cultural questions. An integrative framework is included that can be adapted and adopted in schools, synthesising findings and emphasising the need for individuals and groups to work against preconceived beliefs and emotional reactions to situations, offering contra-intuitive, rational and affective responses. Understanding Prejudice and Education is essential reading for all those engaged in relevant undergraduate, Master’s level and postgraduate courses in education, social psychology and cultural studies, as well as teachers and school leaders interested in developing strategies to reduce prejudice in their schools.

The One Year Devos for Teen Girls is a fresh new devotional just for teen girls by popular author Dannah Gresh. The subject matter is current and includes modern topics. The devotions often utilize social media such as viewing YouTube videos and dealing with Facebook. While the subject matter is modern, Gresh, in her solid big-sister fashion, points girls to the unchanging Word of God. She meets girls where they are and simply explains what God’s Word says about the issue. The devotional reads like a handbook on living as a teen girl in today’s society. Gresh doesn’t shy away from controversial issues, but gives a biblical perspective on topics teens are sure to wonder about, such as sexuality, bullying, self-worth, church issues, hypocrisy, and Facebook. Gresh writes the devotional with Suzy Weibel, the wife of her pastor.

The importance of being able to read for meaning should never be underestimated. The ability to decode text is not enough. It is vital that children understand what they are reading.

The passages in the Brilliant Activities for Reading Comprehension series are designed to do just that. They provide children with a variety of engaging, enjoyable texts that will grab their attention, and indeed their teacher?s attention as well. The types of comprehension passages range from newspaper articles and dialogues, to plays, stories and poems. They gradually increase in difficulty as you progress though the book, and through the series, encouraging children to develop their ability to read for meaning and use a range of strategies to engage with the text. Tasks range from simple factual recall and vocabulary work to more open -ended questions enabling the reader to provide a more personal response. The cross-curricular activities provide a wealth of ideas for extending the passages further and are ideal for fast-finishers.
