NIGHT NIGHT Settle-Down Activities for Easy Bedtimes Cynthia Macgregor
In Night-Night, author Cynthia MacGregor tackles one of the biggest challenges of parenthood?tucking a child into bed. Every parent has experienced the countless excuses and delays of a child resisting bedtime, from needing another drink of water to fearing monsters lurking in the dark. In Night-Night, MacGregor presents a fun assortment of creative solutions to transform bedtime from a battle into a special bonding experience for parents and their children. Beautifully illustrated and filled with suggestions for storytime activities, quiet games, and playful songs and rhymes, Night-Night will turn bedtime into a special part of the day. There are activities to help develop language and number skills and activities that will inspire cognitive and creative thinking, as well as suggestions on how to help children relax. Instead of reading a book, MacGregor suggests telling personal stories tailored to the child's individuality, such as tales about when the child was little or adventures the parent had as a child. She also proposes activities to make bedtime more exciting, such as playing hokey-pokey to get under the covers and making up rhymes to accompany the actions of snuggling into bed.
From the foreword: Night-Night not only offers creative solutions to the challenges of bedtime but also gives parents unique and enjoyable ways to foster closer relationships with their children.

NOW WE'RE COPING Grasping the Nettles of Life Chris Sangster
This book combines spiritually-based stances with real-life and business-based experiences, considering a wide range of techniques, applications and philosophies. It is based on the belief that a focus on the present or now, with a cross-relationship to positive future strategy planning where relevant, helps the individual establish and progress coping abilities.
the book aims to awaken and empower the reader to take personal control of his/her situations in life by experimenting with the variety of stances presented. Some will undoubtedly work better than others for each individual – with some effort, a personal strategy will evolve for each engaged reader.
NOW WE'RE COPING encompasses health, family, work and personal issues, in the belief that there is often a holistic link merging the various causes and effects together – with a selected coping strategy often working best where all related aspects have been addressed. Many of the chapters are standalone, dealing with subject areas such as living in the now, sound in healing, communicating positively and coping with time constraints, which make the book equally appropriate for in-depth reading and referencing specific subject areas.
The later chapters focus the reader, through a range of examples and exercises, onto evolving their own personal self-help strategies, either generally or to meet specific challenges.
