Is there still adventure to be found in this world?'Around The World In 80 Days' by Jules Verne is an adventure novel of a gentleman trying to win a bet. Phileas Fogg along with his manservant Passepartout attempt to circumnavigate the world by train, boat and any transport available in order to collect a £20,000 wager. Along the way they encounter mishaps & danger caused by self inflicted decisions and external circumstances.I summarised the book as follows. "Sometimes a book can just enthrall you .... this wasn't one of those times. There's not anything wrong with the book but I can't recall any compelling moments perse. Technically it's well written but I prefer other fictional books like 'Lost Horizon' which have deeper themes that I can learn from."I hope you have a fantastic day wherever you are in the world.

Benson Shum shares ANZU THE GREAT KAIJU, a story about a kaiju with an unconventional gift, and it's sequel, ANZU THE GREAT LISTENER, which asks us to consider how not all acts of kindness are perceived as intended.   BOOK DESCRIPTION: Anzu the Great Kaiju by Benson Shum Page Length: 40 pages Ages 4 to 8 All great Kaiju are born with a super power to strike fear in the heart of the city. But Anzu is different. Instead of mayhem, he likes May flowers. Instead of striking fear, he prefers to be sincere. Can Anzu find a way to make his family proud and stay true to his kind self? From Disney animator and illustrator Bensom Shum comes an adorable and heartwarming picture book about making your own way and the unexpected power of gentleness.   Anzu the Great Listener by Benson Shum Page Length: 40 pages Ages 4 to 8 Anzu the kaiju loves to tend to his bonsai. Whenever he feels overwhelmed or unsettled, it helps him pause and reminds him to just . . . breathe. One day, when Anzu hears crying in the distance, he's eager to help! The flower-power that makes his bonsai bloom has a way of making others smile. But when Anzu's flowers seem to lose their power, hurting more than they help, he's not sure where to turn--until he remembers some valuable lessons he learned from his bonsai tree. In Anzu the Great Listener, creator and Walt Disney Studios animator Benson Shum illustrates the importance of patience, empathy, and above all, taking the time to listen.   NOTABLE QUOTES: (5:53) “What if not all of kaijus want to destroy? What if they wanna bring joy or kindness? What would that look like in their world?”  (7:13)  “Sometimes I  think it's a nice reminder to just listen, you know? And that silence between the two can make all the difference.” (10:45)  “I think even kids, when they find something that's individual to them, making them happy, would actually make people around them just as happy, ” (14:53) “We all listen in different ways. Just letting the person finish what they're saying is an act of listening, you know? …And maybe not trying to solve a problem if they have a problem and just kind of let them speak what they're saying. And then,  if they ask for help, then maybe you can jump in and have a suggestion.  I think that's an act of listening as well.“ (18:06) “Be kind. Listen to one another. Ask your teacher, a librarian like yourself, a friend, a family member, “How are you doing today?” And listen to what they have to say. To be heard and listened to can make a person's day from just those few words.”    ADDITIONAL LINKS: Website - Benson Shum Purchase the Book - Anzu the Great Kaiju Purchase the Book - Anzu the Great Listener Teachers guide and activities - https://bensonshum.com/activities/ Anzu the Great Listener (Teacher's Guide) - http://bensonshum.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/12/Anzu-the-Great-Listener-Guide-w-Activity-Kit.pdf Anzu the Great Kaiju (Teacher's Guide) - http://bensonshum.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/Anzu-the-Great-Kaiju-Guide.pdf   TALK ABOUT THE EPISODE: What are some examples of kaiju that you can think of? What kind of kaiju would you be okay with discovering was coming for a visit? What kind of kaiju would you definitely want to avoid? What are some ways in which Benson is similar to Anzu? In what ways are they different? What are ways that you are similar (or different) to Benson?  What does being a good listener look like to you? How does it sound? How does it feel? How does it make others feel? Why do you think the book jacket is called a “book jacket”? What purpose does the book jacket serve? Can you think of any other books you've encountered where the cover art differs from the jacket art?

Do you have the courage to break your life-lie?'The Courage To Be Disliked' by Ichiro Kishimi & Fumitake Koga is a Japanese version of a self-help/psychology book. It showcases Adlerian psychology through means of a Socratic dialogue between a philosopher and youth. It is primarily about how to change mental thought patterns by taking individual responsibility and not playing the victim card.I summarised the book as follows. "It's ultimately a useful tool for improvement. I believe much of life is tricking your own brain, body and habits into better outcomes. The philosopher did come across as a bit too assured and I would be curious to know the Adlerian view on pragmatism and whether other schools of psychology can work."I hope you have a fantastic day wherever you are in the world.

Suma Subramaniam shares NAMASTE IS A GREETING, a sweet, universal text shining a light on a word with significance far beyond yoga class, and SHE SANG FOR INDIA, a picture book biography about M.S. Subbulakshmi, a powerful Indian singer who advocated for justice and peace through song.    BOOK DESCRIPTION: Namaste Is a Greeting by Suma Subramaniam; illustrated by Sandhya Prabhat Page Length: 32 pages Ages 4 to 8, Grades P to 3 What is namaste? It's found in a smile, a friendship, a celebration. It exists in silence; it can be said when you're happy or when you're feeling low.  For one small girl in a bustling city, namaste ("I bow to you") is all around her as she and her mother navigate a busy marketplace--and when she returns with a little plant and chooses to give it to an elderly neighbor, it can be seen in the caring bond between them. In a sweet, universal text, debut author Suma Subramaniam shines a light on a word with significance far beyond yoga class, while artist Sandhya Prabhat makes the concept of mindfulness come alive in delightful illustrations likely to draw children in again and again.   She Sang for India: How M.S. Subbulakshmi Used Her Voice for Change by Suma Subramaniam; illustrated by Shreya Gupta Page Length: 40 pages Ages 4 to 8 Before M.S. Subbulakshmi was a famous Carnatic singer and the first Indian woman to perform at the United Nations, she was a young girl with a prodigious voice. But Subbulakshmi was not free to sing everywhere. In early 1900s India, girls were not allowed to perform for the public. So Subbulakshmi busted barriers to sing at small festivals. Eventually, she broke tradition to record her first album. She did not stop here. At Gandhi's request, Subbulakshmi sang for India's freedom. Her fascinating odyssey stretched across borders, and soon she was no longer just a young prodigy. She was a woman who changed the world.   NOTABLE QUOTES: (5:26) “My family was not made rich by wealth, but we were made rich by people.”  (10:59)  “The power of such diverse friendships is the, you know, is, is the bonding and the hope that it brings in times of adversity.” (12:42)  “There is no Carnatic music without M.S. Subbulakshmi, and there is no M.S. Subbulakshmi without Carnatic music.” (18:11) “Art and music are great tools to channel our energy and bring about a positive change, especially in the minds of young people.”  (18:57) “One doesn't need to know the language to appreciate good music.”  (20:14) “You are loved. And this holiday season I hope you pay attention to species of all kinds who are lonely or who are having a difficult winter, and you give them a little bit of your time.”    ADDITIONAL LINKS: Website - Suma Subramaniam M.S. Subbalakshmi performing "Bhaja Govidam" Purchase the Book - Namaste is a Greeting Purchase the Book - She Sang for India   TALK ABOUT THE EPISODE: Namaste is a sanskrit word. Can you recall what it means? What moments in your day have you practiced namaste? And what opportunities might you have to practice namaste before the day's end? M.S. Subbulakshmi was a famous carnatic singer. How would you describe the music that she made? What does it make you feel? Does it remind you of any music you've heard before? What instruments could you hear in the recording that was shared? What is activism? And what barriers or limitations did M.S. Subbulakshmi work to break down or to make possible for others after her through her music?  BONUS: Suma mentioned her dog in her introduction and said that the dog likes to do something that, I'm guessing, is not a typical thing that dogs like to do. Can you recall what she shared?   CREDITS: This podcast episode of The Children's Book Podcast was written, edited, and produced by Matthew Winner.

Understanding the Bardo Thodol | The Tibetan Book Of The Dead (Padmasambhava)

Mere Mortals Book Reviews

What happens when we die? Maybe this book has the answers!'The Tibetan Book Of The Dead' by Padmasambhava is a hidden Tibetan text that explains the 'bardo', the intermediate zone between death & rebirth. It is a companion to be used as a guide for those transitions from life into the next process. There are clear instructions for loved ones/care givers to follow and what to expect in the days following cessation of life.I summarised the book as follows. "A large part of religion is finding meaning, with some practicality attached as well. I personally found this mostly useless but it did get me thinking about the actual logistics of death and caring for dying loved ones. I appreciate Buddhism more than most religions but draw the line at deities & unverifiable claims."I hope you have a fantastic day wherever you are in the world.

Rebecca Sheir shares THE GREAT BALL GAME, a classic folktale originating from the Cherokee, Creek, Ojibway and Menominee people of North America, adapted for a contemporary audience by the host of the Circle Round podcast. NOTABLE QUOTES: (3:28) “So I do try to think of a bunch of different children. So I'm not just writing for one person because our listeners physically, literally span the globe.” (5:25) “Why is the ocean salty? Why don't cats and dogs get along? Why do skunks have a weird smell when they spray? Where does thunder and lightning come from? There have been folktales written about all of these things.” (7:27) “Most importantly, many valuable lessons are imparted about the importance of embracing individuals who are different, about embracing diversity, celebrating non-conformity, including others, and realizing that being different can make you stronger.” (10:15) “Don't be afraid to tell your stories. You don't have to rely on a famous author or podcast host or movie maker to tell a story. You have your own stories you can tell. It can be a story about you, how you spent your summer vacation. That could be a fascinating tale. Or you could go ahead and make up characters. Make a talking bat, you know? You've got stories. You just have to use your imagination. It's ready and waiting for you. ” ADDITIONAL LINKS: Website - Circle Round The Great Ball Game podcast episode - Circle Round Episode 56 Purchase the Book - The Great Ball Game by Rebecca Sheir TALK ABOUT THE EPISODE: What is a folktale? What are some examples of folktales you have heard or heard shared with you? How would you describe a bat to someone who has never seen one? What characteristics make a bat similar or different to a bird? To an animal? Ms. Sheir shared that artist Joshua Pawis-Steckley included severals examples of Ojibwe symbolism and iconography throughout the illustrations in this book.

How I Use Instagram To Book Podcast Guests

Are you ready to take the leap and book amazing podcast guests? In this episode, I'm outlining how I use Instagram to book podcast guests. In my opinion, the best way to book podcast guests is through Instagram. Now, you don't just want to slide into someone's DM's and cold pitch your show. That COULD work, but, for the best results, you need to put in work on the front end and be personable. This means engaging with your potential podcast guest's content and slowly building a relationship with them. Once you've established a little bit of a rapport, you can DM them and formally introduce yourself. If they're responsive and you're feeling like they'd be a good guest, shoot your shoot and invite them on your podcast. Here's the special sauce: Do your pitch via a voice recording. This adds your personality to the pitch and makes it feel a lot more personal. It also makes it easier for them to pick up on your vibe. Be sure to tell them about your audience and include a few talking points for what the interview would look like. This will help them decide if your audience is a good fit for their message. Don't make it weird, be yourself. Work on building a dialogue and reach out to people that genuinely align with your brand, audience, and message. This approach has worked great for me and I think it could work well for you. Give it a go.

Torrey Maldonado shares HANDS, a story about Trevor, a twelve-year-old who is a gifted comic-book artist, a good student, and would do anything to protect his mom and sisters. NOTABLE QUOTES: (6:19) “I wrote this book for lots of kids who feel alone and feel that they have to solve their problems by themselves, because the book Hands helps show that using hands doesn't mean you're strong. And external strength and being muscley, that doesn't mean you're strong. There are lots of ways to show strength.” (14:32) "It was fuel that has driven me through the years and drives me today to write books, to show young people that in these moments where you are angry or you are confused, there is a way that you could use your hands and you can use your mind to reroute and to make things right." (17:04) "So this book really is about revealing that each of us hold a tremendous amount of power in our hands and that we have a firmer grasp on things than we think. And how can we identify those areas where we have a little grasp so that we can make it a stronger grip in a positive way." ADDITIONAL LINKS: Website - torreymaldonado.com Social Media - @torreymaldonado Purchase Book - Hands by Torrey Maldonado TALK ABOUT THE EPISODE: Who did Mr. Maldonado say he had in mind as he wrote Hands? I'll give you a hint: remember the lyrics of that Michael Jackson song? Torrey Maldonado wanted to be like a certain heavyweight champion when he was a kid, but he remembers having a different reaction when he looked through the magazine that his mom brought home with a cover photo of this boxer. What were some of the things that connected with Mr. Maldonado when he looked at this magazine? And how did they make him feel?

Sarah speaks with R. V. Minkler about his post-apocalyptic novel, The Redeemed: "Eleven years after a virus swept through the world, small, spread-out gangs are all that's left of humanity. Veena Osborne and her mentor, Abraham Jones, lead the Tierrans through the daily trials of surviving in post-apocalyptic San Diego. Together, they cling to the daily disciplines of faith and life that keep them safe and alive. When Nate Sinclair stumbles out of a NASA-sponsored suspended animation experiment and into a world changed by catastrophic fires and pandemics, he finds his way to the Tierrans, and to Veena. The miraculous preservation of Nate through all the trials of the world might be enough to keep a sterile humanity alive, but the spreading knowledge of his immunity threatens to push the surviving humans into all-out war."

I like recently published books for their utility, but for pure enjoyment and beauty it's hard for me to go past the classics.In December 2022 we upped the ante and reviewed 5 books on this channel. As usual I was all over the shop with Russian poetry, coding for kids, biographies from 2 millennia ago and Victorian England drama. I chose not to include Juan's upcoming review (didn't want to spoil it) so that will be recapped next month.Huge thanks to Petar the Slav for supporting the show, so greatly appreciated.I hope you have a fantastic day wherever you are in the world.
