40 THINGS I WISH I’D TOLD MY KIDS: MINDFUL MESSAGES ABOUT SUCCESS, HAPPINESS, LEATHER, PICKLES AND THE USE AND MISUSE OF IMAGINATION, John Allcock

40 Things I Wish I’d Told My Kids is about being a successful human being and living a happier, more meaningful life. It contains the important things parents wish they had been able to teach their kids, but couldn’t ― because they never learned them, or only learned them later in life. These include:

  • Don’t be ruled by the tyranny of events
  • The belief that happiness comes from getting what we want is false
  • Pain is unavoidable; suffering is optional
  • We live in a sea of uncertainty ― but we already know how to swim
  • Don’t treat the present moment like it’s a shabby motel room
    40 Things I Wish I’d Told My Kidsbrings mindfulness to the widest possible audience ― by presenting it not as special and exotic, but as practical, simple, down-to-Earth principles for living that every parent wants their kids to know

I AM HARRIET TUBMAN, Brad Meltzer

Harriet Tubman’s heroic and pivotal role in the fight against slavery is the subject of the fourteenth picture book in this New York Times bestselling biography series

This friendly, fun biography series focuses on the traits that made our heroes great–the traits that kids can aspire to in order to live heroically themselves. Each book tells the story of one of America’s icons in a lively, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers and that always includes the hero’s childhood influences. At the back are an excellent timeline and photos. This volume focuses on Harriet Tubman’s brave heroism as part of the movement to abolish slavery. As one of the key players in the Underground Railroad, she helped enslaved African Americans escape and find freedom.
