In this dazzling debut, Carla Shalaby, a former elementary school teacher, explores the everyday lives of four young "troublemakers", challenging the ways we identify and understand so-called problem children. Time and again, we make seemingly endless efforts to moderate, punish, and even medicate our children, when we should instead be concerned with transforming the very nature of our institutions, systems, and structures, large and small.

I wish this book had been published when I began my teaching career twenty years ago. Carla Shalaby watches out of the box children in both home and school settings and helps us understand how our typical idea of the well-behaved student excludes many others. An eye-opening read for parents and educators.

I highly recommend this read for parents and educators. #Parentingtips #Lenschange #Forthekids #Tagsgiving #Sweepstakes

We downloaded this for my kids who got hooked on the first story. John Keating does a fantastic job narrating and my kids ask to listen to this adventure story again and again. The story is entertaining and you get great descriptions. #Adventures #Rangersrule #Fantasty #Tagsgiving #Sweepstakes

Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.
