As parents, some of us want to communicate valuable teachings to our children to help them confront difficult times in life. Sometimes it is challenging to communicate some lessons to young kids. Having reading as a passion, Yasmin decided to teach her son Sebastian key lessons by means of stories she made up at bed time. Important topics like forgiveness, compassion, self-love, and respect are some of the topics Yasmin wants to convey on her fables. Another key aspect of Yasmin’s books is that they provide the kids with an early exposure to a bilingual ambience (English – Spanish). Como padres, algunos de nosotros deseamos comunicar a nuestros hijos enseñanzas valiosas para ayudarlos a enfrentar momentos difíciles de la vida. A veces es difícil comunicar estas lecciones a los niños. Como ávida lectora, Yasmín decidió enseñar lecciones importantes a su hijo Sebastián a través de historias que ella se inventaba a la hora de dormirlo. Temas importantes como el perdón, la compasión, la autoestima y el respeto son algunos de los contenidos que Yasmín quiere comunicar en sus fábulas. Otro punto importante de los libros de Yasmin es que inician a los pequeños en el mundo del bilingüismo (español - inglés).

THE 200TH MESSIAH tells the story of Alan Tate and his wife, Margie, an American Christian couple in their 60's, who arrive in Israel with their church group, but go off on their own. In the Old City of Jerusalem, Margie, struck in the head by a stone, is rushed to the hospital, where she hovers between life and death in a coma. Alan's reaction leads to his arrest and subsequent transfer to a psychiatric facility. Dr. Schechter tries to bring Alan out of his "psychotic episode;" Dr. Ben-Ami believes that Alan is a victim of the "Jerusalem Syndrome;" Dr. Shmuel Hadashi takes a desperate gamble to rescue Alan from his despair. THE 200TH MESSIAH deals with evil, love, loss, vengeance and--ultimately--the question, "Who is sane?"

On the Fordyce farm all appears prosperous--with wide, lightly rolling lands abutting the railroad line, and tenants keeping the fields in neat order. Yet now the laird's daughter, Alexa Fordyce, wonders at recent shows of coldness from her father and at his seeming lack of generosity--surely not true expressions of the father she knows yet more and more apparent since the day he took ownership of these lands. Has he changed?

In Place, Race, and Story, author Ned Kaufman has collected his own essays dedicated to the proposition of giving the next generation of preservationists not only a foundational knowledge of the field of study, but more ideas on where they can take it. Through both big-picture essays considering preservation across time, and descriptions of work on specific sites, the essays in this collection trace the themes of place, race, and story in ways that raise questions, stimulate discussion, and offer a different perspective on these common ideas. Including unpublished essays as well as established works by the author, Place, Race, and Story provides a new outline for a progressive preservation movement – the revitalized movement for social progress.

A nervous courier delivers the handwritten manuscript of a dissident Russian novel to Paul Christopher early one morning in West Berlin. Minutes after the hand-off, the courier's spine is neatly snapped by an impact with a passing black sedan. Meanwhile, in Rome, Christopher's wife Cathy takes a famous film director as a lover to stir her husband out of the stoicism that defines his personality. These two seemingly discrete events set in motion a spiral of operational and personal intrigue that leads Christopher from the cafes of old Europe to the front lines of the Cold War in the Congo as he secretly arranges the publication of a novel that could bring the Soviet system to its knees, and races to identify the leak that compromised his messenger - and possibly the entire mission. Since his re-emergence with the publication of Christopher's Ghosts, Charles McCarry has been heralded as one of the select few espionage novelists who manages to break out of his genre to shine as a brilliant and unique novelist. The Secret Lovers, featuring the legendary Paul Christopher, is McCarry at his best. It is an exploration of the great scope of 'the great game', but also a riveting psychological portrait of a man ensnared by a profession that never failed to exert its insidious influence outside the professional boundaries that, like the facade of diplomacy which outwardly held the Cold War in check, could never contain its violent core.
