            We love wayward children in literature. Not so much in life. When Sally Rippin discovered her child was struggling to read, the best-selling children's author assumed it would sort itself out over time. She couldn't have been more wrong. Her son's dyslexia and ADHD went unsupport...ed for years, leaving him further and further behind his peers, and labelled as 'difficult' by an education system that couldn't easily cater to neurodivergent kids. By the time Sally learned how to advocate for her child, it was - almost - too late. This extraordinary book for parents is about how we learn to read and what can happen if we don't, through the eyes of a parent who started out by doing everything the wrong way. Through meticulous research, interviews with educational experts and conversations with neurodivergent adults, Rippin shares her brilliant and eye-opening insights into how we can help all kids find the joy in reading, and advocate for them within our schooling system. After all, they say school isn't for everyone, but if everyone must go to school - then why not?

            Happy Teachers Change the World: A Guide for Cultivating Mindfulness in Education

            Happy Teachers Change the World: A Guide for Cultivating Mindfulness in Education (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Happy Teachers Change the World is the first official, authoritative manual of the Thich Nhat Hanh/Plum Village approach to mindfulness in education. Spanning the whole range of schools and grade levels, from preschool through higher education, these techniques are grounded in th...e everyday world of schools, colleges, and universities. Beginning firmly with teachers and all those working with students, including administrators, counselors, and other personnel, the Plum Village approach stresses that educators must first establish their own mindfulness practice since everything they do in the classroom will be based on that foundation. The book includes easy-to-follow, step-by-step techniques perfected by educators to teach themselves and to apply to their work with students and colleagues, along with inspirational stories of the ways in which teachers have made mindfulness practice alive and relevant for themselves and their students across the school and out into the community. The instructions in Happy Teachers Change the World are offered as basic, bare-bones Zen practices taught by Thich Nhat Hanh, followed by guidance from educators using these practices in their classrooms, with ample in-class interpretations, activities, tips, and instructions. Woven throughout are stories from members of the Plum Village community around the world who are applying these teachings in their own lives and educational contexts.
