From the expert team behind IT'S PERFECTLY NORMAL and IT'S SO AMAZING! comes a book for younger children about their bodies — a resource that parents, teachers, librarians, health care providers, and clergy can use with ease and confidence. Young children are curious about almost everything, especially their bodies. And young children are not afraid to ask questions. What makes me a girl? What makes me a boy? Why are some parts of girls' and boys' bodies the same and why are some parts different? How was I made? Where do babies come from? Is it true that a stork brings babies to mommies and daddies? IT'S NOT THE STORK! helps answer these endless and perfectly normal questions that preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary school children ask about how they began. Through lively, comfortable language and sensitive, engaging artwork, Robie H. Harris and Michael Emberley address readers in a reassuring way, mindful of a child's healthy desire for straightforward information. Two irresistible cartoon characters, a curious bird and a squeamish bee, provide comic relief and give voice to the full range of emotions and reactions children may experience while learning about their amazing bodies. Vetted and approved by science, health, and child development experts, the information is up-to-date, age-appropriate, and scientifically accurate, and always aimed at helping kids feel proud, knowledgeable, and comfortable about their own bodies, about how they were born, and about the family they are part of.

Requests for the removal, relocation, and restriction of books—also known as challenges—occur with some frequency in the United States. Book Banning in 21st-Century American Libraries, based on thirteen contemporary book challenge cases in schools and public libraries across the United States argues that understanding contemporary reading practices, especially interpretive strategies, is vital to understanding why people attempt to censor books in schools and public libraries. Previous research on censorship tends to focus on legal frameworks centered on Supreme Court cases, historical case studies, and bibliographies of texts that are targeted for removal or relocation and is often concerned with how censorship occurs. The current project, on the other hand, is focused on the why of censorship and posits that many censorship behaviors and practices, such as challenging books, are intimately tied to the how one understands the practice of reading and its effects on character development and behavior. It discusses reading as a social practice that has changed over time and encompasses different physical modalities and interpretive strategies. In order to understand why people challenge books, it presents a model of how the practice of reading is understood by challengers including “what it means” to read a text, and especially how one constructs the idea of “appropriate” reading materials. The book is based on three different kinds sources. The first consists of documents including requests for reconsideration and letters, obtained via Freedom of Information Act requests to governing bodies, produced in the course of challenge cases. Recordings of book challenge public hearings constitute the second source of data. Finally, the third source of data is interviews with challengers themselves. The book offers a model of the reading practices of challengers. It demonstrates that challengers are particularly influenced by what might be called a literal “common sense” orientation to text wherein there is little room for polysemic interpretation (multiple meanings for text). That is, the meaning of texts is always clear and there is only one avenue for interpretation. This common sense interpretive strategy is coupled with what Cathy Davidson calls “undisciplined imagination” wherein the reader is unable to maintain distance between the events in a text and his or her own response. These reading practices broaden our understanding of why people attempt to censor books in public institutions.

Eine unheilvolle Lüge, eine verbotene Sehnsucht, ein geheimes Verbrechen England, Greenacres Farm 1961: Während einer Familienfeier am Flussufer beobachtet die junge Laurel, wie ein Fremder das Grundstück betritt und ihre Mutter aufsucht. Kurz darauf ist der idyllische Frieden des Ortes jäh zerstört. Erst fünfzig Jahre später gesteht sich Laurel beim Anblick eines alten Fotos ein, dass sie damals Zeugin eines Verbrechens wurde. Doch was genau geschah an jenem lang zurückliegenden Sommertag? Weltbestseller-Autorin Kate Morton erschafft eine einzigartige Welt, in der die Vergangenheit die Gegenwart nicht loslässt. Als Laurel nach langer Zeit anlässlich des neunzigsten Geburtstags ihrer Mutter Dorothy in ihr Elternhaus zurückkehrt, holen sie schon bald verdrängte Erinnerungen ein. Der Gedanke an den geheimnisvollen Fremden, der fünfzig Jahre zuvor Unheil über ihre Familie brachte, lässt sie nicht mehr los. Sie ist entschlossen, endlich das Rätsel um die Vergangenheit ihrer Mutter zu lösen. Ein Foto aus dem Jahr 1941 scheint der Schlüssel zu sein: Es zeigt Dorothy in London, Arm in Arm mit einer Frau namens Vivien. Warum zerbrach die Freundschaft der beiden Frauen? Und wer ist Jimmy, den Dorothy wohl sehr liebte und doch vor der Familie verbarg? Auf der Suche nach Antworten muss Laurel erfahren, dass sie sich immer in ihrer Mutter getäuscht hat ... In ihrem neuen großen Roman erzählt Kate Morton eine mitreißende Geschichte, die von den 1930ern bis in die Gegenwart reicht und von einer kleinen Farm in Suffolk bis nach Australien führt.
