Children’s Book Week: Wilfred Gorden McDonald Patridge

posted by Taz Tagore

Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge
Author: Fox, Mem
Illustrator: Vivas, Julie

Mem Fox is one of the most prolific children’s authors in contemporary times.  Her classic Time for Bed and Where is the Green Sheep? have delighted millions of children and parents.  With this book, Mem Fox tackles the difficult issue of aging, and the meaning of memory.

With grace, she explores how the word “memory” means to many different elderly people–and how a child interprets the world of a grandparent.  I recommend this book for children 3+ who are old enough to explore the concepts of age, aging and nostalgia with a parent.

John Welwood Week: Ordinary Magic Book Review
There are few essay collections which I find eternally useful...so useful that they never seem to leave my bedside table for a more (lonely) and permanent space on my living room bookshelf.  But John Welwood edited one such collection called Ordinary Magic.  And indeed, it is full of magic. The

John Welwood Week: Perfect Love, Imperfect Relationships
There are so many reasons to love John Welwood's books.  And what I like most about this one is that it cuts right to the core of our difficulty finding and sustaining the love we really want.  When we read more conventional books about relationships, we always seem to be pointing the finger at th
