New Adventure Follows Playful Puffin Árni “Off The Beaten Path”

Playful puffin Árni and his best friend Birta embark upon another lively adventure in Puffins Off the Beaten Path, the delightful follow-up to RA Anderson’s Puffins Take Flight.

This time, Árni and Birta are exploring Iceland’s breathtaking landscape in search of two lost lambs, but along the way, they come face-to-face with a predator, the Artic Fox, and other an-imals in Iceland.

Young readers can join Árni and Birta on their adventure, as they meet Icelandic horses, sheep, and reindeer, and experience other natural wonders of Iceland. Meanwhile, the puf-fin parents take on a journey of their own as they venture beyond their puffin colony to search for their wayward little ones, encountering Whooper Swans and a family of sheep.

Eye-catching from start to finish, Puffins Off the Beaten Path features photographs captured by the author as she explored the beauty of Iceland. The story is also woven with fun facts that readers will enjoy, including how Icelandic farms manage to grow their own fruit despite the cold temperatures and why sheep are allowed to walk in the streets!

Puffins Take Flight and Puffins off the Beaten Path are the first two books in Anderson’s Puffin Explorers Series. Watch for future escapades with Árni and Birta in the upcoming Puffins Encounter Fire & Ice.

Author RA Anderson is a wanderer who has lived all over, from California to Belize, and currently, home is a town called Rome, in Georgia that is!

A lifelong passion for creative writing and photography became her life. Her award-winning photographs have been featured in table books, magazines and front-page news, and her writing has been published in magazines, poetry books and children’s books. Her If Pets Could Talk series includes Cats, Dogs, Farm Animals and A Service Dog. Iceland, The Puffin Explorers Series is her newest children’s series. She also recently released a YA book, Girl Sailing Aboard the Western Star.

Three boys—her heart and soul—call her Mom. She and her husband are recent empty-nesters, leaving them more time to travel.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

This Beautiful Book Invites Readers To Experience The Bible As A Single, Unified Story

The most popular and influential book in the world is also the least understood. Its sheer volume of history, poetry, genealogy and mystifying prophecies can prove puzzling — even intimidating — for readers. And since the Bible is often taught or read in pieces, readers are left with mere fragments of what should be a vibrant, cohesive mosaic.

This Beautiful Book: An Exploration of the Bible’s Incredible Story Line and Why It Matters Today by Steve Green, founder of the Museum of the Bible, with contributions from Bill High, invites readers to freshly engage the Bible and to understand it as one amazing story.

Green takes readers on a journey through the many stories of the Bible, some familiar and others less so, highlighting themes woven throughout the ancient writings.

Drawing upon insights gained through developing the first world-class Bible museum, Green reveals the completeness and transformative power of Scripture. Green helps readers see the story within the story and makes the careful connections that help us appreciate the richness of the Bible as a single story. Each page will spark faith in a God who speaks to us across the centuries.

A truly captivating experience, This Beautiful Book will instill in readers a deep appreciation for Scripture and its profound connection to our own life stories.

Author Steve Green is the President of Hobby Lobby and along with his wife, Jackie, co-founded the Museum of the Bible. He grew up in Oklahoma City. At age 7, he glued picture frames together for the family start-up business. With his father (David Green) as CEO, Steve became the president of that little start-up business, which is now known as Hobby Lobby —the nation’s largest privately held arts and crafts retailer. Over the years, Steve has been on a journey to experience the Bible as one beautiful story.

Bill High practiced law for 12 years before becoming the CEO of The Signatry. His mission is to help others live a life of significance through family, legacy and generosity. He and his wife, Brooke, have four children, two sons-in-law and three grandchildren. He can be found at billhigh.com and thesignatry.com.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Meryl Streep: On the Couch Offers Intimate Look At Hollywood Icon

The widely popular On the Couch series by Alma Bond, Ph.D., has given readers unique and revealing perspectives into the lives of Marilyn Monroe, Jackie O, Hillary Clinton and Barbara Streisand as seen through the eyes of fictitious New York psychoanalyst Dr. Darcy Dale.

Dr. Bond’s latest, Meryl Streep: On the Couch, takes us inside the life of this Hollywood icon and political activist who’s been nominated for more than 20 Oscars. Her film-ography reads like a greatest hits from the past 40 years, from Kramer v. Kramer to The Devil Wears Prada and the enchanting Mama Mia! ― Streep has seemingly checked every box. But who is she when the cameras aren’t rolling? Readers are about to find out!

When Streep decides to pay Dr. Darcy Dale a visit, it isn’t for treatment. Streep is preparing for her next role, and she’s come to observe and study Manhattan’s most successful psychoanalyst. The two women strike a deal: Streep will have to undergo psychoanalytic treatment herself as part of her research. What follows is a tale that explores the journey and the psyche of a character whose spell never wears off on fans.

Author Alma H. Bond received her Ph.D. from Columbia University and became a highly successful psychoanalyst in private practice for 37 years in New York City. She “retired” to become a full-time writer. She has written more than 26 books, including her On the Couch Series, Camille Claudel, a Novel; The Autobiography of Maria Callas, a Novel; Old Age is a Terminal Illness; I Married Dr. Jekyll and Woke Up Mrs. Hyde; On Becoming a Grandparent; and a children’s book, The Tree That Could Fly. Dr. Bond also wrote the play, Maria, about the life of Maria Callas.

Her late husband, Rudy Bond, was a well-known actor, appearing in many films such as A Streetcar Named Desire, top Broadway shows and in more than 100 TV shows. He also wrote the book I Rode a Streetcar Named Desire. The Bonds have three children, all of whom have published books, and eight grandchildren, none of whom have published books … yet.

Groundbreaking Research Finds Dyslexia And Related Disorders Are Medically Treatable, And Dramatic Improvement Is Possible—Even Partially For Autism/ASD

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Groundbreaking Research Finds Dyslexia And Related Disorders Are Medically Treatable, And Dramatic Improvement Is Possible—Even Partially For Autism/ASD

For more than 50 years, world-renowned clinical researcher Dr. Harold N. Levinson has trained his attention on understanding and treating dyslexia’s hidden origins. He came to view dyslexia as not just a “pure” reading comprehension disorder characterized by reversals, but rather a highly complex syndrome consisting of many and varied symptoms. And he has successfully treated more than 35,000 dyslexics, bringing a much needed depth of understanding, compassion and real help to those failing to cope with the daily challenges presented by this previously misunderstood and often devastating impairment. As a result, bright but dumb-feeling dyslexics—as well as those with related disorders—have been enabled to rapidly feel smarter and smarter.

How did he do it?

His latest book, Feeling Smarter and Smarter—Discovering the Inner-ear Origins and Treatment for Dyslexia/LD, ADD/ADHD and Phobias/Anxiety, explains his groundbreaking findings and his effective treatment process in easy-to-understand language. At the core of his research is his discovery that dyslexia—really its complex syndrome—is caused by one treatable signal-tuning dysfunction within the inner-ear and its supercomputing cerebellum.

In other words, when “dizzy” or scrambled signals adversely affect the functioning of multiple normal brain processors, corresponding difficulties may arise with:

· reading, writing, spelling, math, memory, speech, direction and time
· grammar, concentration/activity-level, balance and coordination
· headaches, nausea, dizziness, ringing ears and motion-sickness
· frustration levels and feeling dumb, ugly, klutzy, phobic and depressed
· impulsivity, cutting class, dropping out of school and substance abuse
· bullying and being bullied as well as anger and social interactions
· becoming emotionally traumatized and scarred dysfunctional adults

Dr. Levinson shares the stories and photos of real patients, young and old, as they reveal both their reading and non-reading symptoms and their rapid, dramatic improvements after using simple and safe inner-ear enhancing medications and nutrients.

Feeling Smarter and Smarter is replete with discoveries and solutions—many that are both surprising and fascinating. For all dyslexics as well as their caring families, teachers and healers, Dr. Levinson’s inspiring work is nothing short of life-changing.

Finally, by similarly treating the coexisting signal-scrambling demon that Dr. Levinson found present in those with major brain processing disorders like Autism or ASD, traumatic brain injury, etc., they too can be helped—not cured. So as Dr. Levinson concludes, “The best is yet to come!”

Harold N. Levinson, MD is a world-renowned psychiatrist and neurologist credited with bringing about a dramatic breakthrough in the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of dyslexia and its related syndromes. His work has resulted in the development of a unique medical-educational therapeutic approach, validated by hundreds of referenced independent research publications. In addition, his new insights and scientific instruments can be used to screen for this disorder before academic symptoms arise—and even prevent their surfacing.

His many scientific papers have appeared in medical and educational journals, and have been reviewed by the New York Times, Science, Time and Smithsonian. He has also appeared on a number of television programs in the U.S. and the United Kingdom, including The Today Show, Larry King Live and Donahue.

Formerly Associate Professor of Psychiatry at NYU Medical Center, Dr. Levinson is currently the Director of the Levinson Medical Center for Learning Disabilities in Great Neck, New York. He has written eight books, including The Discovery of Cerebellar-Vestibular Syndromes and Therapies, A Solution to the Riddle – Dyslexia, a reprinting of his 1980 medical text heralded as “decades ahead of its time” and “a new millennium work.” Feeling Smarter and Smarter is a dramatically updated sequel to his bestseller, Smart But Feeling Dumb.

Are You Raising Or Teaching A Bully?
This enlightening children’s book shows that the key to creating a generation of
kinder, more resilient kids is to stop the first bully they encounter—THEMSELVES!

Words have power. The words others say to us can either lift us as high as the clouds, or drop us down like a crashing plane. But what about the words we tell ourselves? What about that constantly running inner voice? In truth, what we say to ourselves impacts us even more than what others say to us.

“Pigtails are for babies!” she snarled at me. Her words hurt more than the time I broke my arm. I quickly untied my hair. I wore my hair down for the rest of the school year.

That was the first time I met the Big Bad Bully … She called me names like “fatty,” “piglet” and “ugly.” Things are worse now that I am in the 6th grade. Even when I don’t see her, I can always hear the whispers, the giggles, and the growls.

So goes the mesmerizing story of a young girl who grows up with a voice that ridicules and demeans her. In the end, we discover that her tormentor is staring back at her every day in the mirror.

Featuring stunning artwork–and small enough to fit in a backpack–this profound book is a tool for engaging children, young adolescents, parents, and caring adults about the impressions they make on themselves with their thoughts and self-talk. Included are powerful workbook exercises and resources for implementing healthy self-esteem habits that can last a lifetime.
