It isn't paranoia if it's really happening. Anna Fox lives alone-- a recluse in her New York City home, drinking too much wine, watching old movies... and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move next door: a father, a mother, their teenaged son. The perfect family. But when Anna sees something she shouldn't, her world begins to crumble-- and its shocking secrets are laid bare. What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this gripping Hitchcockian thriller, no one and nothing are what they seem.

If you're one of the 40 million women over 45, you might be having a hot flash now. Menopause is a natural part of the aging process. There are some things to celebrate during the "change," and World Menopause Month's goal is to help you embrace it. Here some books in our health collection to that will hopefully provide the best ways to find balance and well-being.

As women approach menopause, many start to experience the physical and emotional indignities of hormonal fluctuation: metabolic stall and weight gain, hot flashes and night sweats, insomnia, memory loss or brain fog, irritability, low libido, and painful sex. Too often, doctors tell us that these discomforts are to be expected and that we will have to wait them out during "the change"; some of us even agree to be unnecessarily medicated. But Dr. Anna Cabeca's research and experience with thousands of her patients show that there is a fast-acting and nonpharmaceutical way to dramatically and permanently alleviate these symptoms.

Liz Earle, MBE, is one of the world's most respected and trusted authorities on wellbeing. Following up on her bestselling books, Skin and The Good Gut Guide, this beautifully illustrated guide shares all of the information, tips and advice you need for a healthy menopause. She provides guidance on how to balance your hormones, the importance of a nourishing diet, the myths and facts about HRT, osteoporosis, how to optimize bone health, and how to boost energy and self-esteem. An expert on beauty, Liz Earle also provides advice on how to take special care of skin, hair and nails, and how to combat aging with supplements. She also shares 60 nutritious recipes - including many suitable for vegetarians - to help you feel and look your best

In my new yellow shirt by Eileen Spinelli

A boy wears his new yellow shirt and is transformed in his imagination into a duck, a lion, a daffodil, a trumpet, and many other things. What else can you transform into?

 

FIVE LITTLE LEMONS

Five little lemons, sitting in a bowl.

One fell out, and started to ROLL….

It bounced on the table and landed at my feet.

How many lemons are left to eat?

[repeat, counting down until all lemons are on the floor]
