"A comic book for kids that includes children and families of all makeups, orientations, and gender identies, Sex Is a Funny Word is an essential resource about bodies, gender, and sexuality for children ages 8 to 10 as well as their parents and caregivers. Much more than the "facts of life" or "the birds and the bees," Sex Is a Funny Word opens up conversations between young people and their caregivers in a way that allows adults to convey their values and beliefs while providing information about boundaries, safety, and joy. The eagerly anticipated follow up to Lambda-nominated What Makes a Baby, from sex educator Cory Silverberg and artist Fiona Smyth, Sex Is a Funny Word reimagines "sex talk" for the twenty-first century."--

Worry has a way of growing, shifting from not-a-big-deal to a VERY BIG DEAL in the blink of an eye. This big-deal Worry is tricky, luring children into behaviours that keep the anxiety cycle going. Children often find it hard to fight back against Worry, but not anymore. Outsmarting Worry teaches 9-13 year olds and the adults who care about them a specific set of skills that makes it easier to face - and overcome - worries and fears. Smart, practical, proven techniques are presented in language immediately accessible to children with an emphasis on shifting from knowing to doing, from worried to happy and free.

Is it Alzheimer's? : 101 answers to your most pressing questions about memory loss and dementia

Peter V. Rabins

RECEIVED
Health

It is normal to sometimes forget a name or a fact, or to wonder why we entered a room. It is also normal to begin having concerns about whether such lapses might be signs that something isn't quite right. In a structured Q&A format, Rabins (Johns Hopkins Univ. Sch. of Medicine) sets out to provide assistance. He offers answers to topics divided into seven broad areas: "Should I worry about my memory?"; "What is dementia?"; "Causes"; "Steps to try lowering the risk"; "Treatments"; "Suggestions for caregivers;" and "Difficult decisions for caregivers." Combining evidence from medical research, along with solutions developed from patient care experience, and technical information in straightforward language, the author points out where the research struggles and when seeking a support group might be the best option.
