Everywhere she goes, there are people who are different sizes and shapes, and have different needs. At last it’s Friday; April and her mom are on their way. At her grandmother’s, April will see lots of flowers, each one as different as the people she has seen during the week. Featured on The Oprah Show, Lori Mitchell’s gentle book teaches a wonderful lesson about appreciating individuality.

Who Is Jackie Fabulous?, Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 4...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Jackie Fabulous, a native New Yorker from the Bronx, is a gut-busting, headlining comedian who uses comedy to simultaneously entertain and inspire her audiences. Having survived her fair share of loves, tragedies, lessons, and embarrassing moments, Jackie channels all of that energy into a performance that makes it difficult not to want more. She comes with a message and a lesson that surpasses the stand-up comedy club stage and sets her apart from her peers. Before Jackie was the self-proclaimed Ambassador of Girls Night Out from the East Coast, a standup comedian performing to sold-out audiences all over Southern California, and a multifaceted entertainer, she moved to California to get a law degree and a husband. After successfully doing both, she realized that she was better suited to play a lawyer on television than to be one, and that the true love of her life is stand-up comedy! Once she realized her destiny, Jackie moved on to become a multifaceted performer riding waves of laughter by connecting with all races, genders, and socio-economic classes on a very personal level. According to stand-up comedy veteran, Arsenio Hall, Jackie, "...is making waves with her modern stand-up combo of charisma and smart sense of fun. When I put her on my late night show she crushed it! A funny ray of sunshine." More than just a funny lady, Jackie Fabulous has brains, supreme confidence, personality and wisdom that make her a comedic force to be reckoned with. She is at her best when she unabashedly speaks her truth. She's like Oprah, Rosie, Ellen, and Martha rolled into one. When Jackie isn't dropping knowledge on laughing crowds nationwide, making television appearances, or developing her own brand of talk show with her team, you can find her acting, giving motivational speeches, and authoring a book. Her talents have helped her explore and transition into other mediums of entertainment, including writing and producing for television. Kym Whitley 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jackie Fabulous.

Wrinkle in Time
7,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Madeleine L'Engle's ground-breaking science fiction and fantasy classic, soon to be a major motion picture. It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger. "Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract." A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem. A Wrinkle in Time is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal. It is the first book in The Time Quintet, which consists of A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, and An Acceptable Time. A Wrinkle in Time is soon to be a movie from Disney, directed by Ava DuVernay, starring Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling. This title has Common Core connections. Praise for A Wrinkle in Time: "A Wrinkle in Time is one of my favorite books of all time. I've read it so often, I know it by heart. Meg Murry was my hero growing up. I wanted glasses and braces and my parents to stick me in an attic bedroom. And I so wanted to save Charles Wallace from IT." -Meg Cabot "A book that every young person should read, a book that provides a road map for seeking knowledge and compassion even at the worst of times, a book to make the world a better place." -Cory Doctorow "[L'Engle's] work is one of the things that made me a writer, a science fiction and fantasy fan, an avid reader. Hers were the first books I read that mixed math and magic, the quest and the quantum." -Scott Westerfeld "A Wrinkle in Time taught me that you can tackle even the deepest and most slippery concepts of physics and philosophy in fiction for young readers. It's a great lesson for all writers, and a tough tesseract to follow." -David Lubar "A coming of age fantasy story that sympathizes with typical teen girl awkwardness and insecurity, highlighting courage, resourcefulness and the importance of famiyl ties as key to overcoming them." -Carol Platt Liebau, author, in the New York Post "An exhilarating experience." -Kirkus Reviews "This imaginative book will be read for a long time into the future." -Children's Literature Books by Madeleine L'Engle A Wrinkle in Time Quintet A Wrinkle in Time A Wind in the Door A Swiftly Tilting Planet Many Waters An Acceptable Time A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel by Madeleine L'Engle; adapted & illustrated by Hope Larson: A graphic novel adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's ground-breaking science fiction and fantasy classic.

The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing
13,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A winning, irreverent debut novel about a family wrestling with its future and its past-for readers of J. Courtney Sullivan, Meg Wolitzer, Mona Simpson, and Jhumpa Lahiri NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE BOSTON GLOBE, KIRKUS REVIEWS, BUSTLE, AND EMILY GOULD, THE MILLIONS With depth, heart, and agility, debut novelist Mira Jacob takes us on a deftly plotted journey that ranges from 1970s India to suburban 1980s New Mexico to Seattle during the dot.com boom. The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing is an epic, irreverent testimony to the bonds of love, the pull of hope, and the power of making peace with life's uncertainties. Celebrated brain surgeon Thomas Eapen has been sitting on his porch, talking to dead relatives. At least that is the story his wife, Kamala, prone to exaggeration, tells their daughter, Amina, a photographer living in Seattle. Reluctantly Amina returns home and finds a situation that is far more complicated than her mother let on, with roots in a trip the family, including Amina's rebellious brother Akhil, took to India twenty years earlier. Confronted by Thomas's unwillingness to explain himself, strange looks from the hospital staff, and a series of puzzling items buried in her mother's garden, Amina soon realizes that the only way she can help her father is by coming to terms with her family's painful past. In doing so, she must reckon with the ghosts that haunt all of the Eapens. Praise for The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing 'With wit and a rich understanding of human foibles, Jacob unspools a story that will touch your heart.'-People 'Optimistic, unpretentious and refreshingly witty.'-Associated Press 'By turns hilarious and tender and always attuned to shifts of emotion . . . [Jacob's] characters shimmer with life.'-Entertainment Weekly 'A rich, engrossing debut told with lightness and care.'-The Kansas City Star '[A] sprawling, poignant, often humorous novel . . . Told with humor and sympathy for its characters, the book serves as a bittersweet lesson in the binding power of family, even when we seek to break out from it.'-O: The Oprah Magazine 'Moving forward and back in time, Jacob balances comedy and romance with indelible sorrow. . . . When her plot springs surprises, she lets them happen just as they do in life: blindsidingly right in the middle of things.'-The Boston Globe
