FOREWORD by Craig Kielburger, Free the Children Foundation. When the Children´s Wish Foundation approached lovely 13-year-old Maddison Babineau just after she received her cancer diagnosis, they offered her the wish of a lifetime. You can do anything, they said: A Disney cruise? The chance to meet your favorite movie star? A $5,000 shopping spree? To those who knew her, it came as no surprise that none of these things were on Maddie´s wish list. But she did know exactly what she wanted. She had been moved to tears after watching a television program about the plight of orphaned children in an African village whose suffering was made all the more tragic because of inadequate shelter, lack of food, and clean drinking water. Maddie´s wish? To ease the plight of these children, halfway across the world. With the money from the foundation, Maddie built the village orphans a shelter and a school, and she provided food and clean water. But this was just the start. Despite being bedridden, and then hospital-bound by her disease, until her dying day Maddie became an indefatigable fundraiser for her children. Maddie was recognized, in life and posthumously, with a number of awards, honors, and memorials. But, until the end, all that was important to her was providing hope and future to the village children who had filled her heart. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susan Crawford.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Lincoln in the Bardo, a darkly comic short story about the unintended consequences unleashed by our quest to tame the natural world-featuring gorgeous black-and-white illustrations by Chelsea Cardinal. Fox 8 has always been known as the daydreamer in his pack, the one his fellow foxes regard with a knowing snort and a roll of the eyes. That is, until he develops a unique skill: He teaches himself to speak ´´Yuman´´ by hiding in the bushes outside a house and listening to children´s bedtime stories. The power of language fuels his abundant curiosity about people-even after ´´danjer´´ arrives in the form of a new shopping mall that cuts off his food supply, sending Fox 8 on a harrowing quest to help save his pack. Told with his distinctive blend of humor and pathos, Fox 8 showcases the extraordinary imaginative talents of George Saunders, whom The New York Times called ´´the writer for our time.´´

That is, until Fox 8 develops a unique skill: He teaches himself to speak ´´Yuman” by hiding in the bushes outside a house and listening to children’s bedtime stories. The power of language fuels his abundant curiosity about people - even after ´´danjur” arrives in the form of a new shopping mall that cuts off his food supply, sending Fox 8 on a harrowing quest to help save his pack.

This full-colour cookbook is designed to help parents improve their child´s diet. The ground-breaking Food for the Brain study, in which Patrick and his team worked with parents, teachers and school caterers to improve children´s nutrition, showed dramatic improvements in energy, mood and concentration amongst the children following the study guidelines. The aim of this book is to share those guidelines and the recipes that produced such great results. Each recipe is carefully designed to provide optimum nourishment to aid with mental development, behaviour and academic performance. Smart Food for Smart Kids also contains menu plans and practical advice on planning, shopping, eating out and dealing with fussy eaters.
Bob Easton thinks he has a cold. Before he dies in agony, four days later, he infects dozens of people. Local health agencies become quickly overwhelmed by the sick and dying, and beg the CDC for help. Dr. Michael Beck and Cara Porter, a member of the Epidemic Intelligence Service, race to identify the deadly bug. They can´t cure it until they know what it is. Dennis and Andi Jensen and their children are terrified. Schools and offices close. Fresh food disappears from store shelves. Three of their children´s friends die. Their neighbors are dying or running away, fleeing the unstoppable infection. Desperate, the Jensens join the exodus, making a nightmarish journey to their isolated mountain cabin along empty roads, through abandoned towns, past looted shopping malls. The superbug - and the panic - quickly spreads beyond America’s borders. On a packed plane, someone coughs - and at their destination, the pilots are told, ´´You can’t land here.´´ US military bases are quarantined. Yet the virus continues to spread. Some believe the plague is man-made. Others see it as a sign of the end times. In the lab, Cara Porter makes a potentially fatal mistake. In the mountains, Andi Jensen tells her husband that she doesn’t feel well. The world is running out of time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wil Mara.

This is the second volume in the collection of Chris Dabb´s readings of Pete Sortwell´s comedy books. More Village Idiot Reviews: Brian, Ethel, and Father Frederick are back with more village idiocy. Frederick has injured his nipples in a vicious moped accident while on his honeymoon and no longer feels like a man. He´s taken up the drink again and is making people´s lives miserable with his antics. He can´t work out why strange men keep following him while he´s out drunk driving, though. Brian´s concentrating on getting through married life while trying to find a hobby that doesn´t hurt. His cousin, Jeff, has moved in for the summer and is on hand to help Brian with his assertiveness when he is bullied by the local biker, Jock. Ethel has discovered that it was Denny who made her shopping trolley explode last year, and with Denny now an adult and living outside the safety of the children´s home, it won´t be long before she exacts the revenge she´s been after. Meanwhile, a battle for power is taking place at the manor house. Lord Monty, who ordered his title from the Internet, is in a battle of wills with his gamekeeper, Chopper. Written entirely in the form of product reviews, we guarantee you´ve never listened to a book quite like this before. (Unless you listened to the first one.) More Office Idiot Reviews: There´s been lots of change in Hogsbottom Plugs. Jeff no longer has an obsession with Westlife or The Jackson Five. Hogsbottom has brought in a lawyer with a height complex and a dodgy bowel to help sell the company, so he can leave his wife and live the life of Riley with his mistress, who is also Jeff´s mother. The question is: Will Hogsbottom be able to get the sale through without Jeff finding out and ruining the future for everyone? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Dabbs.
