My absolute favorite children's book. Perhaps memories of being or feeling different abound in us all. David Small puts humor but more-so serious humor so that the story lingers on for years.
Minds that seem to recreate each day anew bring forth images from Imogene's Antlers and offer comic but useful adv ice how to live in a world that changes so much. Enjoy.
Read this twice and still want to reread or rather study the illustration of feelings. The intensity of this author drives his creativity for also illustrating children's books. My favorite children's book is his Imogene Grows Antlers.
Anyone and everyone who feels different will find some hidden insight to savor in all David Small's work especially Stitches, a memoir of feelings every adult has had.
A movie for all ages. Action thriller with lots of ideas for family talks on what kids see in the world around them. Highly recommended by a former special educator, mother, blogger and storyteller. Enjoy!
ps. Have so many extremely family medical issues, from Stroke to rare brain malformation [AVM} it totally emptied my mind and let me remember the basic strength of family and humanity.
If you may need to take an antidepressant this book will give you the big picture you need. I guess the best review for a book is the number of pages that you copy from that book. I made too many copies. It is very readable and has both depth and overview.
The book is so crucial to understanding how antidepressants work. Please read Chapter Three with its 27 pages of diagrams to learn the terms and complexity of how antidepressants work.
There are so many pieces of this depression puzzle that the book provides. For example, what medications might be making you depressed, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, which might cause depression. Another example is what you might do or utilize to reduce your depression before trying an antidepressant. And it provides a diverse charts and tests about side-effects, dosing, tapering down, monitoring your depression mood and websites.
In conclusion, I felt after reading this book that I had talked to my caring family physician and had the information to decide about using antidepressant and that it was not a lifelong needed medication.
I was so surprised that this sensitive and very low key realistic portrayal affected me so much. It raised an awareness that determined cultural management is a cultural death. A film suitable for children to explore awareness of interventions that can be so traumatic as to be life-threatening. These three young girls attempt a 1,500 mile return to their mother and their natural home. Enjoy and let your children know they can value their roots. Great chance to talk with your young ones what home means to them and what they are attempting to achieve by their actions.
