Book excerpt: This book examines how children’s and young adult literature addresses and interrogates the legacies of American school desegregation. Such literature narrates not only the famous battles to implement desegregation in the South, in places like Little Rock, Arkansas, but also more insidious and less visible legacies, such as re-segregation within schools through the mechanism of disability diagnosis. Novelizations of children’s experiences with school desegregation comment upon the politics of getting African-American children access to white schools; but more than this, as school stories, they also comment upon how structural racism operates in the classroom and mutates, over the course of decades, through the pedagogical practices depicted in literature for young readers. Lesley combines approaches from critical race theory, disability studies, and educational philosophy in order to investigate how the educational market simultaneously constrains how racism in schools can be presented to young readers and also provides channels for radical critiques of pedagogy and visions of alternative systems. The volume examines a range of titles, from novels that directly engage the Brown v. Board of Education decision, such as Sharon Draper’s Fire From the Rock and Dorothy Sterling’s Mary Jane, to novels that engage less obvious legacies of desegregation, such as Cynthia Voigt’s Dicey’s Song, Sharon Flake’s Pinned, Virginia Hamilton’s The Planet of Junior Brown, and Louis Sachar’s Holes. This book will be of interest to scholars of American studies, children’s literature, and educational philosophy and history.

Free book TJourneys: Young Readers’ Letters to Authors Who Changed Their Lives. This book was released on 2017-08-01 with total page 240 pages. Book excerpt: Books can change lives — and here are more than fifty powerful letters from young readers to authors revealing some of the ways that is true. Annie Schnitzer tells Elie Wiesel, “Reading your story allowed me to connect with my own history,” explaining how reading his memoir deepened her understanding of her grandparents’ plight during the Holocaust. After reading The House on Mango Street, Julia Mueller writes to Sandra Cisneros, “You didn’t tell me how to pull myself back together; you just showed me that I could. I was tired of trying to be somebody else’s definition of beautiful, and you told me that was okay.” Culled from the Letters About Literature contest of the Library of Congress Center for the Book, the fifty-two letters in this collection — written by students in grades four through twelve — reveal how deeply books and poetry affect the lives of readers. Offering letters that are as profound as they are personal and as moving as they are enlightening, this collection, which also features artwork by some of the contest entrants, provides a glimpse into young people’s lives and their connections — both expected and unexpected — to the written word.

This book was released on 2008-06-18 with total page 383 pages. Book excerpt: This novel contrasts the issues of obedience vs. disobedience to the divine will of God and the consequences of man's actions, depending on the path they choose to trod. It brings out the fact that there is a constant war raging within a man's soul pulling against the desire to do good versus the desire to commit evil acts. Isaiah 1:19-20 tells us that "if ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land; but if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. In many instances, these light afflictions are a result and testimony to the disobedience of God's will. When our walk does not keep pace with God's instructions, every area of our lives are affected in negative ways. In addition, this novel addresses the hurtful issues encountered by Christians as they embark on a life-time journey of learning to walk in obedience to the commands of Christ. In doing good, Christians often encounter disappointment, malice, and evil deeds from other professing Christians. These encounters can thwart a Christian's growth unless they understand who is really attacking them. Ultimately, each soul must come to the understanding that it is only through Christ can a soul be delivered from any affliction brought on by the spirits of darkness. This novel is a book of hope and encouragement that no matter the affliction, God stands ready and willing to administer healing and deliverance to set a captive soul free. He can turn your light afflictions into a well of joy that springs up to bring about a sense of peace that surpasses your minute understanding in every area of your life. I pray God's continual blessings upon you. Paul S. Holmes

Read and Download Charlie Sanders book Charlie Sanders's Tales from the Detroit Lions in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Free book TCharlie Sanders's Tales from the Detroit Lions. This book was released on 2005-01 with total page 177 pages. Book excerpt: Often when friends get together at home or perhaps at a sports bar on a Sunday afternoon during football season they'll trade interesting short stories about the game, acquired from memory or from reading. It's not necessarily a competition, but rather a way to impress others with what they believe is their wealth of knowledge. When it comes to swapping anecdotes about the Detroit Lions, even today's generation is going to know about some of the tales that have been handed down over the years about fabled quarterback Bobby Lane, or defensive tackle Alex Karras, or other legends who have worn the Honolulu blue and silver of that National Football League team that's been around for more than 70 years. To be sure, there are interesting anecdotes about some of the familiar faces from generations ago, and some from more recent stars, but what of the more obscure Lions? Many players, as well as coaches and officials, long lost to memory were rife with off-the-wall experiences worthy of any barroom or recreation room chips and beer party. Charlie Sanders's Tales from the Lions Sidelines records some of those anecdotes for posterity before they evaporate into the abyss of history. Many of the tales told here are first-hand from the memory of the great former Lions tight end. Some, also, are from the memory and records of coauthor Larry Paladino, a veteran sports writer who covered the Lions for a dozen years for the Associated Press and then for numerous sports publications. But perhaps the most interesting anecdotes--some funny, some serious, some sad--are the ones discovered through research in the old, crumbling pages of Lions' yearly newspaper scrapbooks. Regardless of what tales peak theinterests of readers, we're certain there is a lot to fascinate--and to pass on--for those who read Sanders's tales.
