7. More to Keep Us Warm (Large Print 16pt) - Jacob Scheier

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Both chronicle and confrontation, the poems of Jacob Scheier's debut work out and through notions of loss. As the death of a young man's mother instigates and informs these investigations, the realities of romantic failures become inextricably connected, and in the process More to Keep Us Warm maps the limitations, and breaking points, of the human heart. Questioning how and why we fall in and out of love becomes the collection's haunting refrain. At the same time, Scheier's poems mourn the absence of both religious and cultural identity. Facing the painful and confusing losses of his life, the support of the only ''tradition'' the writer knows - an atheist, socialist upbringing - proves unsatisfying. In response, More to Keep Us Warm explores the formation of a new, complex sense of self as inherited belief systems fail. With humour, sardonic wit, and conversational charm, this search engages and struggles with Judeo - Christian tradition to become an intimate meditation on the nature of God in a secular world.

8. Love, Mommy Writing Love Letters to Your Baby (Large Print 16pt) - Judy Siblin-Librach

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

That first smile. Those first steps. Their faces as they flew through the air on a swing for the first time. For most parents, these moments are priceless, moments that are gone as quickly as they happened. Parents have the best of intentions when they begin writing down everything their children do, but that early zeal is soon replaced by the hectic nature of life, and they give up, often feeling guilty that they didn't do more. But it's never too late to go back and recollect these amazing moments; after all, even your foggiest memories are clearer than your child's, who doesn't have the ability to recollect events that happened in his or her first four or five years. Most children are forever asking their parents, ''What was I like when I came home from the hospital? What was my first word?'' Love, Mommy: Writing Love Letters To Your Baby is a book that finally helps parents recreate their child's memories for them. Author Judy Siblin - Librach, a mother of two, journalist, and talk show host, explains how to recall those moments and give them back to your children as a precious gift of memory. She encourages mothers, fathers, grandparents, and other relatives and friends to join in and try to rebuild those early years for your children. Imagine the look on your child's face when you hand them a series of memories of their childhood, as remembered by you. As a gift for a birthday, graduation, or their wedding, it would be absolutely priceless to them. And maybe you'll see that same look they had as they smiled for the very first time.

9. Michael Moore (Large Print 16pt) - Emily Schultz

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Love him or hate him, the world over cannot ignore Michael Moore. Left and right can both agree that this son of a Flint autoworker has single - handedly revitalized liberal politics, and turned his unique style of political filmmaking into an expectation - defying brand. But long before he shocked the nation on the Academy Awards stage, he was picking fights with everyone from big business to friends and compatriots. Without an agenda to prove Moore right or wrong, Michael Moore by Emily Schultz is the first book to tell Moore's life story - from the shy Eagle Scout to the most vocal critic of the Bush Presidency. Moore's detractors on both sides of the fence claim that he flubs facts, personally and professionally. Schultz sorts truth from lies with in - depth research and interviews, and presents a man honestly passionate and professionally conflicted. In his cap and windbreaker - always aware of the power of media - Moore has spent a life refining his image as the everyday rebel. He is a man who, at age 18, ran for the local school board so he could fire his principal, and who spent three years suing a magazine where he worked for two issues. With information never before revealed, Schultz looks into Moore's mysterious and disastrous jump from local muckraker to editor of Mother Jones, the runaway success of his first film Roger & Me, and the scandal it caused that lost him an Oscar. Regardless of scandal, Roger & Me became his ticket from his economically devastated hometown of Flint to Hollywood. Was he a hero or villain for his portrayal of the death of small town America? The people of Flint were as divided as the rest of the world would soon be. As the '90s saw Moore becoming a powerhouse television producer of the cult hit TV Nation, and a best - selling author, the contradictions between success and his roots became ever more apparent. Is the ball cap and jeans uniform incongruous with his Upper West Side Manhattan life? With Fahrenheit 9/11 catapulting Moore to the front of pop cultural recognition, many from his past say that the line between the man and the myth has vanished. Moore has spent his life walking that line, and Schultz has written an incisive account that lets readers see beyond the myths surrounding one of the most important public figures of our age.

11. The Anatomy of Clay Poems (Large Print 16pt) - Gillian Sze

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Taking off from the Promethean myth of human creation, Gillian Sze's second poetry collection explores the ''anatomy of clay'' and the individual as a sentient mystery. At times reflective, instructional, playful, or strange, the first section, Quotidianus, offers observational poems, which recount intimate and ordinary moments often missed, overlooked, or forgotten. Sze tugs at the fabric of habit and amidst the urban mundane finds her subjects in a woman waiting for the bus, a neighbour who talks to his plants, a girl smoking after a storm. The following section, Extimacy, takes a lyrical and confessional turn, veering inwards, dealing reflexively with the materiality of inner life: the self as ingredients, the self as experiment, the self as animal and artist. The Anatomy of Clay finds exceptions in the most prosaic conditions and the ineffable distinctions between people, selves, objects, and histories.

17. Intentional Parenting (Large Print 16pt) - Yvonne Sum

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

A fresh approach to parenting that will get results for you and your kids. Everyone belongs to a tribe. It is not just the football club or the mothers' group, in a world powered by the instant accessibility of the internet there are many different tribes catering for every aspect of your life. Navigating those tribes is a tricky business. It takes leadership, and the first tribe we learn this from is our family. Parenting can be hard - especially if you may have been finding it challenging to 'read the book' that is your child. It takes intention, attention and action ... planning, persistence, and practice, practice, practice. So, what does it mean for YOU to be a parent? What is your intention as a parent? How will you fulfill this? What do you commit to do? What is your First step? Taking a good look at her own family Yvonne Sum identified seven foundation stones of successful parenting, the 7R's of parenting. Each one is fully explored and explained in Intentional Parenting, and together they are the basis of leading your family tribe. The 7R's are all lessons that are equally applicable in business. But, unlike a leader in a giant corporation, you cannot sack your family and, unlike many businesses today, you are highly invested in their future success. Together that is the carrot and the stick of investing time in developing your leadership role for the benefit of the family. Intentional parenting is a journey that begins with your conscious decision to become a leader and a PLAYPAL to your family. I simply love the perspectives learnt from my children and those I meet on my parenting journey, and what I pass on along the way. Dr. Yvonne Sum
