Our Holiday Choice, “Amber Brown Is on the Move”

51k8Y4gio4L._SX309_BO1,204,203,200_  Amber Brown is On The Move 

Can’t believe the season is almost here just about when the talked about US Mid Term Elections concluded yesterday, Nov. 6, 2018.

Now it’s back to the wish and shopping list in time for the Holidays of 2018.  As we celebrate the diversity and the huge turn out of the youth in the recent concluded elections, it’s time to prepare our kids for the festivities and educate them of the historic process. After all, our kids are our future leaders in the next generation.

We love reading the Amber Brown series with kids when they visit our bookstore! It is a perfect series to discuss real life situations and it way that simplifies intense subjects for young children. We are down to the last few books in the series and I have to admit I will be sad to let Amber go. Through books and he Amer Series as an example, we empower our children of understanding life realities in an easier manner for them to understand.   Great for discussion and for inspiring children to reach within themselves for personal essays.

Bruce Coville author of this book as a young reader  loved Mary Poppins and Dr. Dolittle, and had fond memories of rising ahead of the rest of his family so he could huddle in a chair and read THE VOYAGES OF DR. DOLITTLE. He also read lots of things that people consider junk (Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, Tom Swift, and zillions of comic books). His only real regret is the time he spent watching television, when he could have been reading instead. (A mind is a terrible thing to waste!) Just like today’s television counterpart our our tech toys and smart devices, it still important that we educate our kids through reading interesting books.

Watch out our Amber Series as well as selected juvenile fiction and non-fiction bestsellers at ADLE International

Ci6 Keynote Speaker Chelsea Clinton on Teaching Kids the Value of Persistence

Source: Ci6 Keynote Speaker Chelsea Clinton on Teaching Kids the Value of Persistence

The daughter of former President Bill Clinton and 2016 presidential contender Hillary Clinton, Chelsea Clinton is the author of the number-one New York Times bestselling picture book She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World, which received a starred review from Publishers Weekly, and She Persisted Around the World: 13 Women Who Changed History (both Philomel). Clinton is also the author of the New York Times bestselling It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going! (Puffin Books) and, with Devi Sridhar, Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why? (Oxford University Press).

On October 2, Clinton, who serves as the vice chair of the Clinton Foundation, where her initiatives include helping to empower the next generation of leaders, will publish Start Now! You Can Make a Difference (Philomel), a middle-grade title for young activists.

Muscatine is the owner of Politics and Prose with her husband, ABA Board member Bradley Graham. A former Washington Post reporter and White House speech writer during the Clinton administration, Muscatine is currently writing Hillaryland, her story about working with Hillary Clinton, to be published by Penguin Press.

At the Thursday, June 21, breakfast, following Muscatine’s introduction, Clinton thanked booksellers in the audience, some of whom she recognized from her previous book tours. “I’m so grateful to all of you because without your support and partnership, I wouldn’t be able to have the reach that I hope to have with the work that I feel called to do and the obligation that I feel to children in our country,” she said.

The first time the two met was when Muscatine worked for Hillary Clinton; Chelsea Clinton was just 13 years old and living in the White House. At the time, Muscatine received some impassioned advice from Hillary on raising her kids to be readers: “Your mother was fierce, relentless, incessantly reminding me to read to my children — constantly. She badgered us and others who had children along with me in the White House; she would constantly be sending us books and CDs…Not that I wouldn’t have [read to my kids], but it was so important for me to hear it from her. So I was wondering, when you had Charlotte, did she do the same thing to you?”

Chelsea Clinton’s daughter, Charlotte, is now three years old, and her son, Aidan, is two. She said her mother inculcated her with the same message about the importance of reading to kids and making sure they grow up in a language-rich environment.

“I do think that the stories we tell our children are profoundly important for how we help them either expand or limit their world and how they think about their own possibilities within our world and our shared future,” Clinton said.

2018 Top 3 Best Books and Why

Today was the opening day of Book Expo America 2018 Right after it closes on June 1, it will be followed by a simultaneous event, BookCon 

Both events is highlighted by starting with power house personalities. Today’s main keynote speaker was Len Riggio, Chairman of Barnes & Noble and on June 3, Sunday both President Clinton & James Patterson  President Bill Clinton and the world’s bestselling author James Patterson will discuss their forthcoming novel, The President is Missing, offering candid insights into their unique collaboration and research, as well as the timely and alarming issues their novel raises about our world today.

We started in this order as the 2018 Top 3 Bestselling Books connects the upcoming bestseller, The President is Missing with the top 3 list:

  1.  A Higher Loyalty
  2. Fire and Fury
  3.  A Day in The Life of Marlon Bundo

The main relevance of these books comes down to one subject, The Trump Administration. As CNN Money notes, books about the Trump administration have filled the No. 1 slot on The New York Times’ hardcover nonfiction list since mid-January. That’s in large part because of the dominance of “Fire and Fury,” which sat in the top spot for 10 straight weeks.

The books that eventually replaced it, of course, related to Trump as well. “Russian Roulette” by Michael Isikoff and David Corn — which explores Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election — was the best-seller for three weeks in April as stated by the Business Insider. Number one spot goes to A Higher Loyalty since it was release in April 17.

Former FBI Director Comey’s book join others on the New York Times list with its release last month. The book, which details two decades of Comey’s work and includes insights from his short-lived experience with President Donald Trump, has already climbed toward the top of the Amazon best-seller list for the year — just including presales. Flatiron Books, Comey’s publisher, moved the release date up several weeks as a result of the growing interest and printed 850,000 copies, according to CNN.

The President Is Missing confronts a threat so huge that it jeopardizes not just Pennsylvania Avenue and Wall Street, but all of America. Uncertainty and fear grip the nation. There are whispers of cyber terror and espionage and a traitor in the Cabinet. Even the President himself becomes a suspect, and then he disappears from public view.

For some they want to learn more about what’s going on the Russian involvement in meddling with the 2016 Presidential elections and was there indeed a “Collusion”. Some readers just wanna simply get more information on the Trump administration and President Trump.

As summer reading starts, will find out more about readers are looking forward to reading. June also starts going back to school and new 2018 textbooks and study aids. For now, what are your best books for 2018?

Understanding Trump on his own words

what-happened-9781501175565_lgTrump on Trump by George Beahm was written in 2016. George also is the author of the famous I, Steve Jobs bestselling book.  With the onset on his (Trump) presidency the last six months filled with controversies after each one, coupled with different books written with a common goal of understanding the person and personality.

As described in the book, his presidential bid as he stated was partly him stating that he cannot stand what was going on in the country. He centered on his business acumen and common sense towards leading America to being great again as his campaign slogan. He focus on his business background of having a proven record who understands greatness and one who has the leadership skills of knowing what needs to be done.

In spite of the public skepticism then whether he was serious on running for President, it was months on discussions on where the Income Tax Returns were for public access. As the book stated Mr. Trump has never filed bankruptcy as a person but his companies did to restructure debts at that time.  In the beginning of the first 100 days, the stock market and unemployment numbers prove to be a manifestation of his economic leadership when enormous gains were unprecedented in these sectors.

Although not having had so much public office experienced as cited by his political affiliates as pros and cons, this book outlined his intentions to become POTUS (President of the United States) way back in 1988 when a so called Draft Trump movement was started by a GOP activist name Mike Dunbar. Then of course it was said that Mr. Trump clearly stated he was not interested in running yet went to New Hampshire to make political statements in 1987.

Prior to his bid as President, he was known as The Apprentice on TV with the famous words of “Your Fired”. Whether this famous words have a personality attribute one can only speculate as it is a known fact on the high turn over of his key staff in Pennsylvania Avenue since taking office. The controversial firing of FBI Director Comey and recently the agreed stepping down of his closest key person, Steve.

One thing we all know even without this book is that Mr. Trump speaks his mind whether it may be fascinating is up to the beholder. Thus, in understanding his own words on the current issues on the border wall between Mexico and the US, is indeed a true example that he speaks what he has been thinking. Thus, as well explained in the book, reading through the different speeches, excerpts, twitter feeds whether it affects immigration, healthcare, women, and the like makes it more easier to understand how he thinks. After all, he is not a traditional Washington politician crafting and honing speeches over and over thinking about their political careers and outcome scenarios.

Trans Ban in Military – @Donald Trump

trans
Beyond Trans

Beyond Trans: Does Gender Matter?

Obviously this book needs to be read by President Trump. Trump announced today that he is banning Transgender individuals in the US military. At least he just confirmed what he started in his presidential campaign about his issues on Women. Dah, yes transgender individuals are categorized as Women.

All the years on fighting to have Gay men accepted in the US Military just went down the drain as soon as this announcement was made today that “Trans” individuals are not going to be accepted in the US military. I guess the question now has to be legislative. Is it finally time that the executive privilege of a sitting president be scrutinized in terms of race and equality rights in the  military? The president who is commander in chief and the top supreme leader of the military also gets to decide who he wants to serve? @twitter Mr. Trump says he consulted with the top brass on this decision?

It has been said it’s showmanship being the “Mr. Apprentice” but as the days and months go by, it clearly gives more direction that truly this is not the work of a newbie politician but something more than that.  Trans individuals goes through a lot of challenges just on showing that they have the same rights as any other citizen. They have to advocate for themselves in society and at times really face criticism and acceptability. The leader of the free world should be their friend and supporter as being foe just earned more rejection in terms of being not supportive of race and equality challenges.

Hence, will let you decide on which side your on. At least, read this book first and learn more about Beyond Trans

The Civil War Revisited on “American Oracle”

americanAmerican Oracle

August 28, 1963, a century after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, Martin Luther King, Jr., declared, “One hundred years later, the Negro still is not free.”  David W. Blight’s richly interpretive American Oracle contextualizes the sentimentalized celebration of the Civil War in the early 1960s within the tense realities of the civil rights era and the Cold War. Blight unravels the complexities of Civil War memory and meaning at a time when most white Americans considered restoration of the Union, not emancipation, as the war’s grand result. (John David Smith Charlotte Observer 2011-09-25)

The author cited May 17, 1962 when Martin Luther King, Jr. who then was the head of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) sent an open letter to President Kennedy for a National Rededication to the Principles of Emancipation Proclamation. He also asked that an Executive Order Prohibiting Segregation  in the United States. For King he was appealing deep to history and memory.

As we celebrate “Independence Day” as we remember our forefathers on how they have fought for freedom, let us also remember what Civil Rights activist like Dr. King fought for, Inequality still exist and we have to be forever vigilant in the ideals of true freedom where every American has equal rights in this country.

The current and present events that prevail such as fight for equal pay, gender neutral work opportunities, freedom of speech, equal wealth and income distribution,  are just some examples on a vast list of work still needed today. From the issues on the travel ban, immigration, the replacement of the Affordable Care Act are examples of a long list we as citizens should continuously monitor and take steps in continuing the fight of our forefathers and civil rights activist like Martin Luther King.

David Blight satisfactorily takes his readers back to the Civil War’s centennial celebration and beyond. On July 4th why not focus in the things essential to equality.

Understanding Trump, The Case to be President

Trump
Understanding Trump

Branding, Not Attacking as author Newt Gingrich writes about Winning, Big League on this new bestselling book, Understanding Trump

Being a businessman and the first elected US President who has not held a previous public office is the greatest strength Donald Trump has and I must say the best person who should know about branding than anyone in the Republican party.  As seen before during the primaries he defeated his primary contender Jeb Bush as being combative and maneuvering to be on the offense. Something as seen nowadays on his presidency on his continuous attack and every effort to reverse the policies of his predecessor Barack Obama. As any good salesman, he or she will focus on the conversation about you and the topic in order to build the rapport, get your sentiment and agreement as seen in the past books he has written like in Trump: Art of the Deal

Any Television follower of the show, “The Apprentice” remembers Mr. Trump in his famous words of “Your Fired”. The case of the recent firing of the controversial FBi Director and the Obama appointed attorney generals who have been routine to any newly elected president except that it got controversial because of the familiar “Your Fired” rhetoric. As the Former Speaker and Bestselling Author Newt Gingrich thoroughly explains the case of the vision and personality of President Trump through this bestselling book, the fact remains is that the recent actions in the first 100 days. Such are the cases of the Travel Ban to selected Muslim countries, the building of the border wall, the non-importance of climate change, the vision of making Great America without Free Trade, the envision health care reform, the reversal of trade openings with Cuba, and the admiration of President Putin. Notwithstanding the first President to have accused the media of wrong and bias reporting.

The book has great visions looking forward on what the Trump presidency wants to accomplish yet the arguments on the current events are side by side with the pros and cons. But as any bestselling book, the name,  personality, curiosity of the reader lies beneath on why this new book is now running out of printed copies as of this writing.

As any book lover and reader who normally is in tune with current events, I’ll let them make their decision on how to rate this book. For now, let’s stay tuned, compare what has been written to what is going to be accomplished.

What happens now with the Healthcare Act?

sick

An American Sickness a great recent bestseller written by Elisabeth Rosenthal who is physician verifying how dysfunctional the American Healthcare system is.  With recent changes from the Affordable Care Act to the new Healthcare Care, the question lies if the new law even made the American Healthcare to be more “Un-Affordable” paving the way for Americans to be more non-insured.

The easiest way of comparisons with the 2 laws referred to is the normal encounters on our daily living that touches on anything about our health. Such instances would be when going to the pharmacy if one has a regular prescription re-fill, was there a change in your copay, did you used to not pay anything or did your co-pay increase or decrease?

If you have to visit your providers like medical doctors, dentist or optometrist, is there a co-pay changed or are your providers still on the selected HMO or PPO network of your insurance? In such cases if your a the state funded Medicaid, are your providers willing to accept this type of insurance? Sometimes it’s not just a matter of not accepting medicaid, some providers don’t qualify or don’t want to go through the hassle of a long list of compliance and reporting requirements so they can participate in state funded insurance networks.

With the onset of the new Healthcare law, patients with pre-existing conditions will fall under a high risk pool? What it means and outcome we still don’t know at this point. However, what’s going to happen is that these individuals will again end up choosing not to any prescribed preventive care due to affordability or as seen the past racking up huge unpaid medicals bills with collection agencies running after them again. This book discusses on the best practice of negotiating with billing offices when they receive a huge medical bill. Thank god nowadays the credit reporting systems have now classifications and the credit bureaus may or may not allow collectors  inundating one’s personal credit file on unpaid medical bills. In spite of this in 2014 as quoted in the book, the Medical and Debt Responsibility Act requiring credit bureaus to delete reports of delinquent medical debt once settled or resolved never made it through the committee due to the credit agencies opposition. And as the book and we all know, Medical cost and billing is big huge business in the American Healthcare system.

It’s still to early to see the outcome of the new Healthcare law but each person must be vigilant on how it will affect each of us and to ensure were not eaten alive with the big business of the Healthcare system.
