A Song Just for Me
These stories are based on Mary Kiki Wilcox's 12 years of volunteer work in the health center of her senior community, where she takes recorded music, on a CD player, to the residents in the Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facilities. They listen together, as a group, in their weekly "Mostly Music” sessions, or individually, in their rooms. She has a wide selection of music to share, ranging from classical to popular standards and show tunes. Her listeners talk-about whatever comes, whatever moves them. What Mary sees in the faces of her neighbors as they listen to the music, and what they choose to talk about, touch her deeply. These people become her friends.
Last Child in the Woods
This huge international bestseller, fully revised for non-American readers, is now in ebook. Last Child in the Woods shows how our children have become increasingly alienated and distant from nature, why this matters, and what we can do to make a difference. It is unsentimental, rigorous and utterly original. 'A cri de coeur for our children' Guardian Camping in the garden, riding bikes through the woods, climbing trees, collecting bugs, picking wildflowers, running through piles of autumn leaves... These are the things childhood memories are made of. But for a whole generation of today's children the pleasures of a free-range childhood are missing, and their indoor habits contribute to epidemic obesity, attention-deficit disorder, isolation and childhood depression. This timely book shows how our children have become increasingly alienated and distanced from nature, why this matters and how we can make a difference. Last Child in the Woods is a clarion call, brilliantly written, compelling and irresistibly persuasive - a book that will change minds and lives.
