The Wendy (Tales of the Wendy Book 1)

by Erin Michelle Sky

THE WRONG KIND OF HERO.

“Girls can’t be in the navy! Girls take care of babies! You’re so stupid, you don’t know anything!”

London. 1783. Wendy Darling is an orphan, living in an overcrowded almshouse, ridiculed for believing in a future she can never have. More than anything in the world, she wants to be the captain of a ship. But that’s impossible. Isn’t it?

By 1789, she’s sixteen, old enough to be sold into service as a dressmaker or a servant. When she learns the Home Office is accepting a handful of women into its ranks, she jumps at the chance, joining the fight against the most formidable threat England has ever faced. Magic.

But the secret service isn’t exactly what she had hoped. Accompanied by a reimagined cast of the original Peter Pan, Wendy soon discovers that her dreams are as far away as ever, that choosing sides isn’t as simple as she thought, and that the only man who isn’t blinded by her gender… might be her nation’s greatest enemy.

Back Pain Reliefs: Stop Your Daily Cycles of Pain

by William Sullivan

Start to change your life today choosing to be pain-free with a little mindfulness.

“What if I could give you your life back, pluck out the pain, and give you a world of unimaginable beauty that would be for all time.” â?? Anne Rice

Backpain can be acute, recurrent or chronic. Most of the people suffering from back pain fall in the first category wherein the pain vanishes in about six weeks and home remedies prove to be very effective. In the case of the recurrent category, the pain reappears after some time while chronic pain lasts for a longer period of time.

Overuse or underuse of the back is also one of the causes of back pain. Inflammation and swelling often occur in the joints and ligaments, especially in the cervical and lumbar regions, as people grow old. A herniated disc or spinal stenosis which refers to the narrowing of the spine also results in back pain.

It will certainly be worth reading the rest of the book to find out some techniques that may benefit you if you’re one of the many people suffering from any of possible causes and symptoms. You’re not alone. Over here in this book, you’ll find simple applicable tips that you can easily implement in your daily lives or take note of what not to do.

Prevention is sometimes even better than needing a cure, and we’ll walk you through the basic steps that’ll cover all the fundamental knowledge you need to know and understand about backpains to be able to take care not just yourself, but your loved ones too.

I Don’t Want to Go to Kindergarten … I’ll Miss You Toooo Much! (Mrs. King’s Toolbox Series Book 1)

by Maureen King

1 Award-Winning Illustrator + 1 Delightful Story for All Ages + 2 Super Power Stress Management Techniques + Many Tips for Parents, Educators, and Mental Health Professionals = I Don’t Want to Go to Kindergarten…I’ll Miss You Toooo Much!

Learn to empower kids of all ages with a simple, life changing skill. Don’t let the title fool you. “Powering-Up” helps us deal with challenging situations including being bullied, starting kindergarten OR college, and more. The jaw-dropping activity in the book provides proof that our body instantly changes based on our thoughts. Following the story, the “Notes for the Reader” section focuses more on the super power and how to reinforce it. Access to free online videos and activity downloads are included. This book has fifteen SPECIAL KINDLE BONUS PAGES. It also teaches a second super power not taught in the hardcover book. Use the pop-ups to enhance the reading and learning experience. Double-tap to open and close pop-ups.

Maureen King, school counselor and former K-12 teacher, wants everyone to learn a powerful skill she regularly shares with students and adults. This simple tool literally changes the chemicals in our brain and builds new neural pathways. “Powering-Up” reduces the impact of bullying or other stressors. It helps us learn, increases memory, strengthens the immune system, makes us smile, and more! Learn how to reinforce this tool so it becomes a life changing habit for resiliency and increased emotional intelligence (EI or EQ). Powering-Up is definitely NOT just for kids!

Being a kid can be tough! Children experience a wide range of traumas, often without the knowledge of the adults in their lives. Why wait for a child to act out before empowering him with positive coping skills? Unaddressed fear, frustration, loneliness, and other emotions can manifest as aggression, self-injury, withdrawal, difficulty maintaining positive relationships, failing grades, bullying, drug or alcohol dependency, and more.

Split between schools, King was only able to work with a small percentage of the at-risk middle school students who were already in crisis before popping up on the intervention radar. She successfully taught them to access real super powers and wanted to help more families. Her students didn’t understand why they were not taught these tools sooner. King wished she had known these strategies when her kids were young. She recognized that many parents and caregivers don’t have time or resources for parenting classes, counseling, workshops, or lengthy, self-help books. They do, however, usually squeeze in time to enjoy a short book with their child. King saw that skills taught to adolescents and adults can (and should!) be taught to all children and their families through story.

This was the foundation for “Mrs. King’s Toolbox Series” designed to reduce stress and improve overall mental health and coping skills. The adult reader learns the skill along with the child and is taught how to reinforce it.

When King shared the hardcover book with 8th grade classes, the teacher suggested that the title could have been, “I Don’t Want to Go to High School” since the emotions felt by 14 year olds are often the same as those felt by preschoolers. The students wholeheartedly agreed.

Adults have asked for permission to copy the “Notes for the Reader” section to carry with them as a reminder to “Power-Up” in difficult situations at work or in the community. Kindle provides you the opportunity to keep this life-changing book with you. Empower your family today. Share this book and the reinforcement activities. Help children find their JOY!
