Discover the truth about the Second Amendment, the NRA, and the United States' centuries-long fight over guns in this first-of-its-kind book for middle grade listeners. For the majority of the United States' history, the right to own a gun belonged to a 'well regulated militia.' That changed in 2008 with the historic District of Columbia v. Heller case, which ruled that the Second Amendment protected an individual's right. In the years since, the debate over gun legislation has reached a crescendo. And the issue grows ever relevant to children across America, with an estimated three million exposed to shootings every year. From metal detectors to see-through backpacks to shooting drills, kids face daily reminders of the threat of guns. Hana Bajramovic's Whose Right Is It?: The Second Amendment and the Fight Over Guns reveals how a once obscure amendment became the focus of daily heated debate. The book will show young listeners how gun legislation has always been a part of American history and how money, power, and race have long dictated our ability to own guns.Show more

Una bellissima raccolta di poesie per bambini e ragazzi. Ecco un esempio: Un bel giorno una sardina a nuotare se ne stava. Signor polpo se ne accorse, lesto le si avvicinava. "Dove vai, mia sardinella?" Tosto lui le domandò. Lei, che era molto furba, senza un fiato lo lasciò. Ma il polpo si era accorto che lei s'era dileguata, e girando per lo scoglio, ecco che lui l'ha acciuffata. "Oh, buongiorno! io ti ho detto." Signor polpo prese a dire. La sardina per timore facea finta a non sentire. Poi di colpo fece un balzo: no, parlare non voleva! Si rimise giù, a nuotare: già quel polpo conosceva. Sa che è molto impertinente e gli piace disturbare. Come incontra un po' di gente non c'è gusto più a nuotare. Signor polpo è rassegnato: sulla roccia si sdraiò, e stringendo le otto zampe ecco che si addormentò. Lui lo sa che è un po' scocciante, che sta tutti a disturbare. Le parole sono tante, impedisce di nuotare. Sol per questo la sardina lì da solo lo ha lasUna bellissima raccolta di poesie per bambini e ragazzi.

This practical guide to understanding the cranial nerves as the key to our psychological and physical well-being builds on Stephen Porges’s Polyvagal Theory—one of the most important recent developments in human neurobiology. Drawing on more than thirty years of experience as a craniosacral therapist and Rolfer, Stanley Rosenberg explores the crucial role that the vagus nerve plays in determining our psychological and emotional states and explains that a myriad of common psychological and physical symptoms—from anxiety and depression to migraines and back pain—indicates a lack of proper functioning in the vagus nerve. Through a series of easy self-help exercises, the book illustrates the simple ways we can regulate the vagus nerve in order to initiate deep relaxation, improve sleep, and recover from injury and trauma. Additionally, by exploring the link between a well-regulated vagus nerve and social functioning, Rosenberg’s findings and methods offer new hope that by improving social behavior it is possible to alleviate some of the symptoms at the core of many cases of autism spectrum disorders. Useful for psychotherapists, doctors, bodyworkers, and caregivers, as well as anyone who experiences the symptoms of chronic stress and depression, this book shows how we can optimize autonomic functioning in ourselves and others, and bring the body into the state of safety that activates its innate capacity to heal.Show more
