Anthologies seldom make history, but Dangerous Visions is a grand exception. Harlan Ellison's 1967 collection of science fiction stories set an almost impossibly high standard, as more than a half dozen of its stories won major awards - not surpising with a contributor list that reads like a who's who of 20th-century SF: Samuel R. Delany, Philip K. Dick, Brian Aldiss, Roger Zelazny, Philip José Farmer, Fritz Leiber, Larry Niven and Robert Silverberg. Unavailable for 15 years, this huge anthology now returns to print, as relevant now as when it was first published.
From the celebrated Positive Discipline series comes a guide for teachers who wish to foster respect, civility, and engagement in the classroom. This new edition is updated with essential tools for the modern teacher.

Feelings are a crucial element of social relationships, yet students with social learning challenges (some with diagnoses such as Autism Spectrum, Social Communication Disorder or ADHD) frequently have limited understanding of emotions. Our goal for students with such challenges is for them to acquire social relationship skills that will improve their capacity for effective, fulfilling relationships with family members, people at their school or work, and members of their broader community. This is a large and complicated task. YouCue Feelings simplifies such learning using a relatively new form of storytelling - online videos - to accelerate learning about feelings and relationships. YouCue Feelings includes summaries and titles of 25 wonderful online, easily accessed videos. Each has been selected for its portrayal of rich social relationships and crucial social learning concepts. YouCue Activities, done in conjunction with video viewing, make up the core of the YouCue Feelings program. These activities range from simple drawing projects or discussions about the characters in a YouTube video, to more sophisticated activities such as building connections between the social learning concepts in videos and what happens in a student's everyday life. There 25 activities in Level 1, focusing on the characters in the videos. Level 2 contains 25 additional activities that use video viewing to jumpstart discussions about the student's own emotional experiences. In this first book of a series, author Anna Vagin, PhD, draws on her thirty years of experience working with children to show therapists, teachers, and parents how to support elementary and middle school students in building their emotional vocabulary, tracking changes in feelings over time, and increasing their ability to reflect on their own emotional experiences. YouCue Feelings guides students in thinking about, talking about, and ultimately, practicing important social learning ideas in their everyday lives.

Toilet Tales (Big Kid Books)
Author: Brigitte Waisberg, Andrea Wayne von Königslöw
Publisher: Big Kid Books
Do animals use the toilet? Get dressed by themselves? Sleep in a big bed? No? Why not What is more exciting for a toddler than reaching such important milestones as using the toilet, getting dressed, or moving from a crib to a big bed? But what if animals tried to do the same things? A lion, thinking that a toilet was his throne, might sit there all day; an octopus would probably have a hard time putting on socks, and how would an alligator fit his long tail onto a short bed? With adorable, softly-colored illustrations and jaunty rhymes, these three board books are ideal for encouraging success as young children look at the antics of animals trying to perform the tasks they themselves are just mastering. The folly of a mouse trying to use the toilet or a kangaroo sleeping in a bed are sure to make them laugh. These books also provide an opportunity to discover the names of many different animals.
