    Interview: Children's Author Jenifer Johnson About Her Book 'Nap Time Fairies'

    in Books

    Nap Time Fairies by Jenifer Johnson. Illustrations by Barbara Morgan. 


    As a working mom of a small boy named Noah, Jenifer Johnson wanted to be there to see each smile, watch him grow and explore with him. She missed Noah every minute she was away, imagining him and his daily routines. So she invented "The Nap Fairies" and would tell her son this story during their times together. She imagined the Fairies making the journey for her and watching over him. During their times apart, she was sending him "love, laughter and my heart ever after." It was a natural next step to turn to her own mother Barbara Morgan, a gifted artist, when she decided to create this book. Both author and illustrator knew how children can grow anxious at bedtime and they wanted to give them a sense of comfort. Now Nap Time Fairies provides parents a lovely way of connecting with their children whenever they're apart-as well as when they're together. Nap Time Fairies is sure to become a favorite bedtime story for families everywhere.

    American woman Sharon Derrington stands her ground

    in Politics Conservative

    I love my America and would do what I can to save her from decay.  I am just an average woman who helps patrol the Texas Mexico border to help keep illegals from crossing the Rio Grande.  There are many nationalities who try to come here illegally. I attend as many protests as I am able to show my disconcern with what is happening in my country. Closing the border is number one on my list


     


    Our children’s schools teach them about the victims in our nation to the exclusion of the heroes who sacrificed their families, homes, and lives to secure our freedom. College professors disparage the very idea of American exceptionalism, and our nation’s elite scoff at the idea of our reliance on God for maintaining this nation’s greatness. How can we, as parents and role models, instill in children a true and vibrant sense of patriotism?


    Resistance was another option for loyalist women. In 1779, three women—Margaret Inglis, Susannah Robinson, and Mary Morris—plotted to kidnap the mayor of Albany. Others encouraged friends to refuse to take the loyalty oath to new governments. Most of the women who actively supported the Crown participated by aiding loyalist soldiers or by collecting information for the British. Some loyalist women hid their husbands from arrest, while others hid important papers or money from authorities. These acts raised questions about the autonomy of the political commitment of these women: were their actions from wifely loyalty, or evidence of independent political choice?

    The Horse Lover: A Cowboy's Quest to Save the Wild Mustangs by H. Alan Day

    in Books

    The Horse Lover: A Cowboy's Quest to Save the Wild Mustangs
    Hardcover – March 1, 2014
    by H. Alan Day  (Author), Lynn Wiese Sneyd  (Author), Justice Sandra Day O'Connor (Foreword)


    “A great American story, and an inspiring tale of vision, courage, and hard-won wisdom. It’s told with humor and grace and without pretension. And every reader is sure to find a horse to fall in love with in these pages.”—Larry Watson, author of Montana 1948


    “A definite read for all those who love horses. Day and Sneyd’s book is sure to become an instant wild-horse classic in the spirit of J. Frank Dobie.”—J. Edward de Steiguer, author of Wild Horses of the West


    “The Horse Lover is a very good illustration of the real western part of our nation. Day, a successful rancher and businessman, is honest and forthright in dealings with neighbors, employees, business associates, and especially the federal government. I recommend this reading.”—Dennis DeConcini, former U.S. senator from Arizona


    “It is impossible to see a herd of wild horses running free without feeling a surge of excitement and enthusiasm for their vigor, power, and beauty. To watch them run with their manes and tails flying in the wind is to experience a sense of the ultimate freedom of motion.”—From the foreword by Sandra Day O’Connor, former U.S. Supreme Court justice


    "Day's poignant personal journey is one of both heartache and hope, a mirror of not just one man's desire to save a great American icon of freedom, the wild mustang, but a nation's."—Stuart Rosebrook, True West

    Author Interview: Peter Strassberg MD on God, Gravity And The Big Bang

    in Books

    THE BIG BANG is modern myth. It never occurred. It, and much of current science (particle physics) is but today’s version of the Biblical Creation and Fall. In this book, Dr. Strassberg takes us on a journey—a voyage of understanding. By opening a portal to a different dimension, the book leaves the reader with a deeper insight into our world and the forces that shape it. The Hunger For More is an excursion into the realm of the very small (the quantum world of atoms and particles) and the exceedingly large—the universe with its awesome structure. As we travel, it allows us to make sense of what to Einstein was “spooky” action at a distance, and helps us to unravel the ever-perplexing wave–particle enigma. It shows dark energy to be an illusion, inflation to be, essentially, infinitely impossible, and cosmic microwave background radiation (the supposed glue holding the Big Bang together) to be fundamentally misunderstood. It explores the concepts of force and time, finding an underlying essence—to those of science, gravity; to those of faith, God. It is an exciting adventure well worth taking. PETER STRASSBERG, M.D. is a a practicing physician in the New York Metropolitan area.

    in Books

    About the Author: Bernard Otterman was born in Lodz, Poland, in 1937. At the age of three, he and his parents escaped Lodz and fled to Warsaw. From there to the Pietrokov ghetto and were subsequently interned in the Radom ghetto and then transferred to the Daimler work camp five miles away producing small munitions. In June of 1944, as the Russians advanced from the east, the camp was liquidated, and its inmates shipped to Auschwitz. Bernard and his mother escaped from the line being marched to the trains, fled and hid for six months as fugitives in the Polish countryside and survived until the Russian troops liberated Poland in January of 1945. His father was sent by train to Auschwitz, then immediately moved to a work camp in Germany. He too survived and the family was reunited in Lodz in September of 1945 through displaced persons listings. They lived in Germany until coming to the United States in 1951. Otterman was trained in mechanical engineering and for many years was on the engineering faculty at Northeastern and Hofstra universities. He worked and reworked the stories in this collection for more than a decade. "The Golem of Auschwitz" was first published in New Millennium Writings. "Kaddish" was first published in The Nassau Review and received first prize in fiction from the Review. "Lotto Fever" was first published in Word/Slovo. Several of Mr. Otterman's poems have been published in Poetry, Jewish Currents and other journals and compendia.

    The Sweetness: A Novel by Sande Boritz Berger |

    in Books

    www.sandeboritzberger.com


    As Berger's novel moves back and forth from Vilna to Brooklyn, the focus is on Rosha and Mira as well as on Charlie's sister Jeanette. All three attempt to make sense of a life that often makes no sense at all. VERDICT: In this engaging debut, a semifinalist for Amazon's annual Breakthrough Novel Award, readers gain three different views of the effects of World War II on ordinary people.


    Andrea Kempf, formerly with Johnson Cty. Community Coll. Lib., Overland Park, KS, Library Journal


     


    Despite the title, bitterness is the dark driving force in this stirring debut novel of Holocaust survivor guilt-guilt about being safe. Told with candor and tenderness, there are two parallel stories of Jewish girls-one a teen, one an eight year old- from the same family but worlds apart during WWII.


    Hazel Rochman, Booklist


     


    A Jewish girl in Eastern Europe and her teenage American cousin experience the Holocaust years in vastly different ways in this bittersweet novel.... A tender look at immigrants in America and Nazi victims in Europe succeeds in educating and engaging readers.


    Kirkus Reviews
