The Mermaid Shawl & other Beauties: Shawls, Cocoons & Wraps How-to
View Kathleen Valentine's bio page

Why do what has already been done? More than a book of patterns, The Mermaid Shawl & other Beauties, is designed to help knitters create their own works of knitted lace art. The signature shawl was introduced in 2005 on Kathleen Valentine's blog and subsequently described in a knit-along but throughout the knit-along Valentine encouraged knitters to make different choices that made their shawl unique to them. Now, using the same principles, she offers techniques, diagrams, charts and tips that allow knitters to customize each shawl for their own original work of art. The book contains instruction for three versatile shawl styles, how to turn a rectangular shawl into a cocoon, a chapter on knitting on the bias, tips and tricks, and an original short-story, The Mermaid Shawl, inspired by the signature shawl.

Cues & Clues To Children's Behaviors: A Guide to Raising a Happy, Well-Adjusted Child How-to
View Salma Bhalla, Ph.D.'s bio page

Do you know how your child gives you cues through his behavior when he is angry, sad, frustrated, or anxious? Do you know what is causing these emotions and behaviors? Do you know how to help him?

Cues & Clues To Children’s Behaviors is a comprehensive guide to understanding children’s behaviors. It describes the parent’s influence on their child, highlights ineffective parenting styles and how it affects the children. This Chapter is followed by physical, language, social and emotional development of a child from infancy through adolescence. Knowing the developmental stages of children will help the parents formulate realistic expectations of their children’s behaviors and avoid unnecessary frustration.

Chapters on Self-Esteem, Anger, Anxiety, Stress, Traumatic Stress and Depression describe causes of each emotion, behaviors by age groups from toddlers through adolescents, and strategies to intervene when these emotional problems arise. These Chapters also give coping strategies for the adults if they are experiencing the same emotional problems as the child.

Parents’ divorce can have a significant impact on a child’s emotional health. The Chapter titled Divorce and its Effects on Children describes ways to help your child deal with his emotions when a divorce occurs.

The Chapter on Attention Problems discusses the possible causes of inattention and strategies to help your child or yourself if you also have difficulty paying attention.

The Chapter on Becoming an Effective Parent gives a daily guide to effective parenting.

Is there a cultural component to parenting? The last chapter addresses this aspect of bringing up children.

The book is written in a very accessible, reader friendly style with lots of examples. The objective is to give concise, to the point professional information to help the parents, caregivers and teachers be in tune with the child’s emotional health and be able to help him as needed.

Fry Bacon, Add Onions: The Valentine Family & Friends Cookbook How-to
View Kathleen Valentine's bio page

In this combination memoir and family cookbook blogger and novelist Kathleen Valentine combines 30 posts from her blog with nearly 400 recipes collected from family and friends. Growing up in a "mostly Pennsylvania Dutch" family she collected and recorded recipes from grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, cousins, friends, etc. which were combined in the first Valentine Family & Friends Cookbook published in 1981. This was expanded in the 1992 edition and now, in this third edition, nearly 400 recipes combine with essays recording memories of growing up in rural Pennsylvania and photographs from six generations.

Essays topics include making sauerkraut and soltz (sultz) (a German pickled meat loaf), toasting marshmallows and catching fireflies, the old-country Christmas traditions of making stollen and visits from Belsnickle, old world ghost stories, their grandmother's quilts, and more.

Traditional family recipes include schmarn, panhaas, moultasha, a variety of sausage recipes, hassenpfeffer, and liver dumplings, a wide variety of pickles and relishes, as well as keuchels (a type of fried dough), apple dumplings, and rhubarb crisps and pies. Contemporary recipes from the younger generations of the Valentine family expand the collection with everything from dips and cocktails to chowders, cakes and cookies. Among the more popular recipes first featured on Valentine's blog are:
- three maple syrup pies
- apricot-apple crisp with maple cream
- caramel peachy-pear pandowdy
- honey & white peach pie
- Pennsylvania Dutch hot and sour soup
Though this collection is a memoir in food of the Valentine family it could be the story of any first, second and third generation immigrant family.

The Manual of Bean Curd Boxing: Tai Chi and The Noble Art of Leaving Things Undone How-to
View teapotmonk's bio page

This book is unlike any other on Tai Chi. It less a set of instructional photos, and more a Manual for 21st Century Living.

Whilst many schools of thought advocate techniques to Get Things Done, Bean Curd Boxing teaches us the art of Leaving Things Undone: How to get out of our own way so that life can pursue its natural course. Using the harmonious practice of Tai Chi and the esoteric philosophy of Taoism, we are introduced to a new perspective on 21st Century Life, one that uses a new language to describe the simple amongst the complex and the tranquillity amongst the confusion.

With an emphasis on practicality, rather than precision, this book is for anyone searching for simple wisdom in a world drowning in digital information. But it is not just a book about ideas, The Manual of Bean Curd Boxing is also for those looking for practical techniques to improve their breathing, their sense of balance and their sense of connection with life. It is for anyone who wishes to nurture an interest in these Eastern arts - rather than a religion.
