    finally! the pain of parenting . . . in poetic form! stark raving dad is an illustrated collection of poems (no claims of being walt whitman here) that humorously captures fatherly angst in comedic verse and pairs it with talented art from the author’s own kids.let’s be honest: most gifts for dad usually end up being a golf club or a tie. but what about the dad in desperate need of a laugh? give him reassurance he’s not the only father trying to figure it all out.over the years sanderson dean has turned all his fatherly angst into poetry accompanied by crudely drawn images by his children. but before your eyes glaze over at the word poetry you should know it’s more hapless than highbrow. from surviving road trips to being puked on and from plunging clogged toilets to finding craisins in the couch cushions sanderson covers many of the rarely talked about adventures that make the journey of parenthood so very exciting.

    education has become synonymous with schooling but it doesn’t have to be. as schooling becomes increasingly standardized and test driven occupying more of childhood than ever before parents and educators are questioning the role of schooling in society. many are now exploring and creating alternatives. in a compelling narrative that introduces historical and contemporary research on self-directed education unschooled also spotlights how a diverse group of individuals and organizations are evolving an old schooling model of education. these innovators challenge the myth that children need to be taught in order to learn. they are parents who saw firsthand how schooling can dull children’s natural curiosity and exuberance and others who decided early on to enable their children to learn without school. educators who left public school classrooms discuss launching self-directed learning centers to allow young people’s innate learning instincts to flourish and entrepreneurs explore their disillusionment with the teach-and-test approach of traditional schooling.
