We have added two new books to the Parent/Teacher collection. The Preschooler Problem Solver– Tackling Tough and Tricky Transitions with Your Two- to Five-Year Old by Carol Baicker-Mckee, Ph.D. I think the subtitle pretty well describes the focus of this book! She even includes book titles that are revelant to the subject matter being discussed. For example, in the section about divorce, she lists, Dinosaurs Divorce by Brown, Let’s talk about It by Fred Rogers, Loon Summer by Santucci ,and Rainy Day by Haughton. She lists both fiction and non-fiction. It seems to be full of practical, useable advice.
The other new book is The Single Mother’s Book by Joan Anderson. She takes you from the beginning of being a single parent on through to perhaps entering a new relationship and everything in between. There is sensible advice on tots to teenagers, dating in today’s world, finances, legal issues, and much, much more, all presented in an upbeat, supportive voice.
