Creation’s Cry: The Heart of Apostolic Passion, Atkin, Don
6 Atkin, Don Creation’s Cry: The Heart of Apostolic Passion
Don Atkin 1931527970 / 9781931527972 Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
224 pages. In a day when so many either ignore apostolic ministry, or others pervert its meaning, it is a joy to read and understand the big picture of what the Lord has purposed for His Church. There's so much rich wisdom Don conveys in "Creation's Cry". According to Steve Eastman, "Don Atkin began his journey with God in 1963. He was firmly entrenched in the church system. A few years later he migrated from sunny California to snowy, upstate New York. His story brought back memories of other families I had met in the church system, who experienced miraculous provision as they sold out to God and trusted Him to meet all their needs. But God is not static. Neither was He content to allow Don Atkins to camp out at his initial understanding of the Kingdom of God. Don ended up on the receiving end of two mentoring relationships that helped him move beyond the traditional paradigm of church. It seems much of the church is obsessed with saving souls, which it subsequently abandoned. The New Testament emphasizes discipling newly born believers. For Don, that came to include hosting long-time house guests, who caught the Christian life by watching Jesus live out His life through him and his family. Don is not a hierarchical guy. He sees apostles as wise master builders whose influence stems from their function, not a position. A man’s gifts make room for him, and people gifted to be apostles come to be recognized as such through the fruit in their lives. Don did not obey his mentors because they demanded it, but because he recognized God working through them. Mentoring is intended to be temporary, leading the disciple to where he can hear God for himself, no longer needing a constant intermediary. I would be less than honest if I said everything in the book blessed me. One part was disturbing because it illustrates a style of parenting in sharp contrast to my own. Don tells about a time when his daughter was arriving from school. He had always told her to come straight home. At 20 minutes past the deadline, Don went to look for her and found her talking to a boy. He sent her to her room until he had cooled off, went in to speak with her and accepted her apology. They he spanked her with a paddle. He says she took it well. In my opinion, what worked for Don and his daughter, would not work for the majority of families. A child who was spanked after being told she was forgiven would normally feel betrayed and resentful. Just as a disciple needs to be gradually given more responsibility before the end of a discipling relationship, I feel a child needs to grow in decision-making before reaching adulthood. Otherwise, he or she is not ready to accept adult responsibilities. If a daughter is old enough to be interested in boys, she is probably too old to spank. A more appropriate punishment would be a loss of privilege. Perhaps if Don had included his daughter’s age in the story, his actions would have been more understandable. I do not wish to belabor my one area of disagreement with a book I found to be otherwise sound. Don Atkins has a lot to offer in practical experience as he teaches on the apostolic. You will learn more from him than you would at most apostolic-prophetic conferences."

Planning with Kids: A Guide to Organising the Chaos to Make More Time for Parenting, Avery, Nicole
7 Avery, Nicole Planning with Kids: A Guide to Organising the Chaos to Make More Time for Parenting

xiv + 274 indexed pages. The ultimate guide for parents who dream of having a little less chaos and a lot more time for the good things in life Written by mother of five, Nicole Avery, this book shows harried parents how, with just a bit of planning, family life can become easier to manage, less stressful, and decidedly more fun. "Dream on," you say? "I might as well try to herd cats as to get my kids to follow a lot of arbitrary rules!" And Nicole would agree, which is why Planning with Kids isn't like any other parenting guide out there. It was inspired by Nicole's blog of the same name, which, over the past three years, has garnered a huge audience of likeminded parents who have achieved nothing short of miraculous results following her advice. While other prescriptive guides offer mums and dads cook-cutter solutions to the challenges of raising kids, this handbook focuses on one simple, straightforward idea: by implementing a few simple strategies for how you do things, you'll make more time for you to be you and your kids to be kids. You'll find strategies for streamlining and enhancing everything from the routines of daily life, to family relationships, to budgeting and finances, playtime and much more! Nicole Avery is the master organiser behind popular blog 'Planning with Kids', where she shares tips and tricks to organising the chaos of family life. This is her first book.

Australia Hodder & Stoughton 1987 0340372036 / 9780340372036 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
32 pages including colour illustrations. During the eighteen months my son Anthony was under treatment for cancer, we all - doctors, nurses and family - developed the habit of greeting him with "What's up, mate?". We didn't expect a reply but more often than not we did get a smile. Perhaps in the beginning, the question was too difficult for a six-year-old child to answer. During the long period of struggling to communicate and cope, Anthony himself became aware of our problem. When I decided to try to put it all down on paper, the idea was instantly endorsed "The kids need it, Mum," said Anthony. So do parents, friends, relatives and teachers. I hope that "What's Up Mate?" will make it just a little easier to cope in a very difficult situation.

96 indexed pages including b/w illustrations. This field guide has been written primarily for the non-botanist interested in the native trees of the Australian Capital Territory. It contains descriptions and illustrations of the sixty woody species of Australian plants commonly reaching tree height, or more precisely four metres, growing naturally within the Territory. As the coastal vegetation of the Jervis Bay region is quite different from that of the inland part of the Territory and would add greatly to the complexity of this guide, it has not been included; and as an additional aid to a compact guide, the descriptions have been kept as short as possible. References to further reading are included for those wanting more information.

Australia Port Campbell Press 2006 1877006025 / 9781877006029 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
205 pages. The heroine of this novel is Nannerl Mozart, the forgotten sister of a genius. As a child, she had played for the royal courts of Europe with her brother, yet in adolescence she was left at home in Salzburg with her mother, while her father and Mozart lived in Italy. The father is not portrayed as an ogre, more a parent dedicated to enshrining and marketing his son¿s talent. The consequences are explored with perception and sympathy for each member and for Nannerl in particular as an eighteenth century female of considerable musical gifts. In 1770, Mozart wrote to his sister from Rome to praise her composition, urging her to send him more. none of her music survives and A. M. Bauld has included one of her own compositions in homage. The novel follows Nannerl Mozart¿s life through marriage, children, widowhood and death in conversations with her nephew, Franz Xaver, Mozart¿s younger son. Interwoven is a fictional account of what may have happened to Mozart¿s body. it is a story with subplots ingeniously constructed from the few known facts.

17 Beall, Pamela Conn; Nipp, Susan Hagen Wee Sing: Nursery Rhymes and Lullabies
Australia Budget Books 1989 Reprint Stapled Pictorial Cover Good 12mo Nancy Klein 
63 pages including drawings. How many times have you wanted to sing a song to your child and found you could not remember the words? This has happened to us so many times that we decided to compile a book of our favourite songs and fingerplays to share with our forgetful friends and their wee ones. Music can create a special closeness and joy to those who experience it together. However, for a child, there is more to music than mere enjoyment. Language development, muscular co-ordination, body awareness, rhythmic proficiency, auditory discrimination and self-confidence are a few of the benefits acquired from an early exposure to music. The young child is eager for musical and rhythmic experiences, thus providing a perfect time to introduce songs and fingerplays. Music can also provide a positive resource for approaching those crisis situations with children. As the hour of waiting in the doctor’s office is drawing to a critical climax, nimble those fingers, begin “Three Little Monkeys” and feel the knot in your stomach untie. Or, as the road sign reads 20 more kilometres, bellow out “a chick, chick here” and watch the scowl on Dad’s face disappear as he joins in with “a chick, chick there.” Music may be the answer in moving from crisis to calm. We want to thank our many friends who have contributed to this book. For them, and for you, we hope Wee Sing will bring many special, enjoyable times with your wee ones.

You Can Make Music! It's Never Too Late to Start, Ben-Tovim, Atarah; Boyd, Douglas
19 Ben-Tovim, Atarah; Boyd, Douglas You Can Make Music! It's Never Too Late to Start
UK Victor Gollancz 1986 0575037830 / 9780575037830 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
143 pages. Have you ever wished that you could play a musical instrument? Maybe you started to learn but gave up in frustration, believing you were 'no good at music'. Perhaps you were told at school that you were 'unmusical' or 'tone deaf'. , Atarah Ben-Tovim and Douglas Boyd maintain that nearly every adult is musical enough to experience the deep satisfaction of playing an instrument. They stress that age is no hindrance tolearning and may even be a positive advantage. From a unique, ten years' research programme, they have developed a practical and reliable system of testing musical aptitude; and they have shown that most people who fail on an instrument do so because it was wrongly selected. This book enables adults to use the same step-by-step approach as the authors' previous and highly successful book, "The Right Instrument for Your Child". Charts and questionnaires tell you if now is the right time to begin learning an instrument. They also assess your latent musical ability; compare the advantages and disadvantages of different instruments; and, finally, reveal the instrument to which you are physically and temperamentally best suited and which most easily fits in with your current lifestyle. Having selected the right instrument you will need a wide range of information on purchasing it and finding a teacher. For this, the Beginners' Information Pack at the back of the book is an invaluable aid. Atarah Ben-Tovim and Douglas Boyd are the ideal pair to demystify music and to understand beginners’ problems. Atarah was a child progidy on the flute, while Douglas Boyd, a brilliant linguist, was a musical drop-out. He gave up the piano after three years of agony yet went on to spend 20 fulfilling years in the music business.
