FLOAT: A Guide to Letting Go by Aimee L Ruland (Author), Carl R Anderson (Illustrator). Available in ebook, paperback, hardback and audio.
"This delightful rhyming poem which helps children (and possibly also the adults) to learn to let go of negative thoughts and feelings will stay with them long after they have outgrown the need for you to read it to them. They might even begin to read it themselves. Children can relate to this kind of imagery, in my opinion and it will do them a world of good all through their lives!" -- Miki's Hope
"What a beautiful message for children of all ages! A brilliant example of emotions and feelings that may be difficult for children to define with words. Float is the perfect story to help a child's mind and body unwind at the end of the day. I found myself thinking about the message long after reading the story." --Tanya Swanson, kindergarten teacher
"Beautiful, soothing words to comfort children and guide them in using imagery to help deal with the weight of daily emotions." --Susan E. Slater, children's librarian

Float: A Guide to Letting Go seeks to encourage children to process their emotions gently and in a way that allows them purposeful ownership of what they think and how they feel. It will aid them in identifying the root of their feelings, help them to examine their reactions to emotions and decide for themselves what they may be ready to release. The thoughtful use of color and symbols, and the guided practice of breathwork, encourages readers to maintain a broad focus as they become more grounded and aware. The playful rhyme dances with readers as they grow on their journey to the present, where they are beautifully set free.
Readers will enjoy:
- Learning how to identify and examine emotions
- Understanding how to release unwanted thoughts and feelings
- Permission to acknowledge, accept, feel and heal in a unique way

Expertly put together, written verse and very good illustrations describe how a simple fall and a bang to the head can affect a child and how the parents or guardians feel.
It describes perfectly how the child feels and the symptoms they experience during the trauma. It is done in a reassuring manner and explains the prognosis. It explains the hospital and doctors interventions and the expertly drawn images of the equipment used takes away the fear factor.
To fully understand what their child is going through it encourages parents to ask the medical professionals for updates and to research the condition and symptoms to ease their worries.
It relays a message to schools, parents and children on the importance of checking the areas where children play for hazards and to be wearing the appropriate safety equipment.ie cycle helmet while riding a bike.
As the book relates the symptoms from the child’s point of view it reassures the parent these symptoms are common with the accident and are short term conditions and with swift and expert care the child will make a full recovery.
It's Dixie's turn to get her man! Dixie's story was bound to be explosive as she finally makes her stand against those loving yet very protective biker brothers we all love. I've been looking forward to reading her story so much knowing it would take an exceptionally strong man to stand up to her brothers, and when he did I was like HELLO JACE STONE! I was literally holding my breath as the stand off between Jace and a certain Whiskey brother played out. Jace has totally exceeded all my expectations.
He initially sets out to persuade Dixie to be the face of his high class motorcycle brand, knowing that no one else could come close to the stunning biker chic that has played on his mind for years, but she's having none of it. The fun starts at the bachelor charity auction, especially when our feisty biker decides that she's also going to take part. I couldn't wait to see the reaction of her brothers when she appeared on stage! In between some hilarious moments. As soon as she takes the first steps of breaking the protective chains, she has her sights set for the man she's been fantasizing about for years, Jace, and goes ahead and agrees to help him out.
Dixie and Jace are both such strong characters, after closing off their fantasies about each other for so long the flirtatious games begin. Their electrifying heat literally burns the pages as you read and it's not only Dixie's temperature that was spiked by Jake Stone, and that's before they even get together!
They share so many tender moments together as they continue to get closer, yet knowing it will only ever be a temporary thing. As a reader you will be right there along with them, feeling their apprehension, the fun moments, their heartaches, the excitement, their off the scales heat.
I loved how Jace discovered his new feelings and tried to ignore them, as if that was even possible. Then you had Dixie pretending she was ok with a temporary hook up. Both kidding themselves, trying to ignore the deep feelings of belonging together. Fighting against their own feelings was so realistic I was on tender hooks wondering if this could be the one Melissa Foster story that doesn't end in a true happily ever after!
I laughed, I swooned, I cherished this amazing story, I was transfixed, but beware you may need a pulse check throughout this one! Totally awesome!
Amanda's Fall: A Story for Children About Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) by Kelly Bouldin Darmofal
Amanda's Fall, with charming illustrations by Bijan Samaddar, depicts an event common in schools today. Young Amanda gets a concussion after falling and hitting her head during recess.
"While children may not wish to discuss unsettling topics like this, the author knows just how to write this story so that it is relatable and raises a vital issue. This is exactly the kind of book that is needed in today's world. All too often, we tend to believe that head injuries are no big deal. This book covers a serious topic and is the idea teaching tool for all ages." - reviews My Devotional Thoughts
"As a teacher, I really enjoyed the simplicity of the story in helping children understand that a TBI can happen to anyone and what it could mean down the road. I honestly wonder if some children hit their head and do not report it to an adult because the child was doing something that would fall under the category of "unsafe". This story illustrates the concept of telling an adult if you get hurt as well as some things that might occur if a child hits his or her head." reviews Devorah Bergman
"I read this book just in the nick of time! My almost 97 year old Mom fell and did some major damage to her face and hand and HEAD. Thankfully she came through it just fine! But at the beginning and even now she does have some of the symptoms described in this book. It definitely is the young and old who fall the most frequently! Extremely informative and there are resources at the end that you just might need some day." reviews Miki's Hope

Amanda's Fall, with charming illustrations by Bijan Samaddar, depicts an event common in schools today. Young Amanda gets a concussion after falling and hitting her head during recess. While she can hear people talking, she cannot respond. Amanda is taken to a doctor for evaluation. Wisely, her parents ask for a prognosis, which in Amanda's case, is a good one. Author Kelly Darmofal offers readers her third book on TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), encouraging parents and caretakers to alert schools and, hopefully, doctors when any child is concussed; side effects can then be ameliorated.
Studies show that Traumatic Brain Injuries represent the leading cause of death and disability in young adults in industrialized countries. According to the CDC, at least 564,000 children are seen each year for brain injury in hospital emergency departments and released.
"Kelly Darmofal worked hard on recovering from severe TBI, and gained the special gift of ability to explain what she went through. This book offers transforming power to children and parents--those afflicted with TBI and those trying to prevent it." -- Dr. Frank Balch Wood, professor emeritus of neurology-neuropsychology at Wake Forest School of Medicine and ordained Baptist minister
"Amanda's Fall is a delightful, much needed children's book on Traumatic Brain Injury. Through the eyes of a child, it raises awareness, has tips for coping and offers support for those affected." -- Christina Condon NP, Neurology
"Amanda's Fall is a lovely book that uses rhyme and colorful illustrations to engage young readers. Kelly Bouldin Darmofal's warm writing style makes it easy to understand the issues surrounding this potentially serious medical condition." Laurie Zelinger, PhD, RPT-S, board certified psychologist and author of Please Explain Time Out to Me
"This is a cute and creative story to help young children understand their world after a traumatic brain injury. It teaches them that they are not alone in their experiences. The tips for parents are a valuable resource as well." -- Mary Jane Morgan, Lower School Principal, Calvary Day School
"Darmofal has an ease in the way she writes about TBI. In this sweet story, she makes a difficult situation approachable and something to discuss. This is a wonderful story to share and educate children about TBI." -- Susie van der Vorst, co-Founder and Director, Camp Spring Creek

Are you looking for a lovely 'feel good' weekend read that will make you smile and laugh out loud? If so, then Bayside Romance is just the romance you need! Full of fun, friendship, family, and love, it's such a heartwarming read.
Both Harper and Gavin have never got past their passionate one night stand, the instant connection they both felt, everything felt just right, but fate had other ideas and they thought they were destined to never see each other again and lived on regret. Until one evening they are unexpectedly reunited, what follows is a touching, realistic account of their growing love for each other, building a strong foundation for their relationship to grow, and enjoying every hot moment a relationship can bring! A misunderstanding could end it all or pull it stronger together, read to find out!
Gavin, what can I say, wow this man has everything from looks, to red hot passion, to having the most loving characteristics. Just when Harper has lost all her self worth, and motivation to write, Gavin is there patiently encouraging her to move on and embrace the life and talent she has, gently growing their relationship without any pressure on her so she can have the time she needs to be Harper again. This man is a total dream.
I always love visiting Bayside, there's always a lovely warm friendly atmosphere, it makes you want to jump right in and experience it for yourself.
BEAUTIFUL is the word that sums up Mad About Moon. My heart was pulled in all directions, I fell totally and utterly in love with the characters and their back stories made me love them even more.
Josie and Jed are two beautiful souls that are finally destined to be reunited. They have both had to go through so much to get where they are today and you will join them on part of their emotional journey in this book, as well as enjoy the sheer love they have for each other. You will also be treated to one lovable little boy who will also steal your heart, just as easy as he stole Jed's, their relationship is so touching.
I was rooting for Josie the whole time to move forward in her life, it made my heart swell as she turns her life around. Jed is there every step of the way, the invisible bond between them was stronger than it had ever been. Their story is definitely HOT and will have you there completely in the moment!
Mad About Moon has come so close in overtaking my favorite Melissa Foster romance, Tru Blue, it has the same darkness to the story, the same pull towards the characters, the same heartfelt emotions and, of course, humour. It makes you want to re-read all The Whiskeys all over again. I can't get enough of this family and community focused on hot bikers. Another remarkable accomplishment from Melissa Foster.
Prepare yourself to be also teased with culinary delights! Just saying ;-)

"For those of you who love 'swoony insta-dad' type heroes, you're definitely going to want to check this book out. It was absolutely heart-melting." - Aestas Book Blog
"Ms. Foster, went for the gut with Truman and Gemma. Tru Blue is more than a romance, it is a story of love, a story of hope and a story of courage. 10 + stars." -- Night Owl Reviews
He wore the skin of a killer, and bore the heart of a lover...
There's nothing Truman Gritt won't do to protect his family--Including spending years in jail for a crime he didn't commit. When he's finally released, the life he knew is turned upside down by his mother's overdose, and Truman steps in to raise the children she's left behind. Truman's hard, he's secretive, and he's trying to save a brother who's even more broken than he is. He's never needed help in his life, and when beautiful Gemma Wright tries to step in, he's less than accepting. But Gemma has a way of slithering into people's lives and eventually she pierces through his ironclad heart. When Truman's dark past collides with his future, his loyalties will be tested, and he'll be faced with his toughest decision yet.
