The Wolf is Not Invited
By :McDonald,Avril


FEATURED KIDS TITLE OF THE MONTH

Toppsta Reviewer 18th July 2016

This book is brilliant! Easy to read and has an important message. I read it to my daughter who is starting school in September. When we finished she said “so it’s ok that I make new friends and my old friends make some too, they are still my friends”. I was so pleased she thought this and puts my mind at ease about her starting school.


Creative Steps magazine 7th June 2016

We say… There are some situations and feelings that we cannot change and there are some that we can, this book has a hidden moral that will help children understand the difference between the two and find new ways to make ourselves feel happy!

Caring for the Dying
By :Fersko-Weiss,Henry


FEATURED TITLE OF THE MONTH

Caring for the Dying describes a whole new way to approach death and dying. It explores how the dying and their families can bring deep meaning and great comfort to the care given at the end of a life. Created by Henry Fersko-Weiss, the end-of-life doula model is adapted from the work of birth doulas and helps the dying to find meaning in their life, express that meaning in powerful and beautiful legacies, and plan for the final days. The approach calls for around-the-clock vigil care, so the dying person and their family have the emotional and spiritual support they need along with guidance on signs and symptoms of dying. It also covers the work of reprocessing a death with the family afterward and the early work of grieving.

 

Book Details


Warm stories of client experiences give permission to imagine a death experienced with as much humanity as the rest of life, with profound results for everyone affected by the event. Fersko-Weiss’s perspective is a desperately needed reminder of the value of facing life’s most difficult transitions with open eyes and hearts.
– Publishers Weekly Starred Review


This brave, reassuring book succeeds at eliminating the negativity surrounding death, reframing what seems like a passive, painful experience as an active journey that ‘captures the concentrated fragrance of a person’s life, its sweetest flavor.  Foreword Reviews
