    A Child Called It: One Child's Courage to Survive. By Dave Pelzer. First book in a 3 part series of a boy that survived nearly fatal child abuse. The second book is about his time in foster care, and the third is about becoming the adult he is today. Very sad book but worth reading!!!

    A Child Called It: One Child's Courage to Survive. By Dave Pelzer. First book in a 3 part series of a boy that survived nearly fatal child abuse. I recommend it for anyone, most especially for those of us who work with children. This series is heart breaking.

    (Another person wrote) One of my favorite books. This book is a true story about one of the worst child abuse cases in California's history. It came to an end on March 5, 1973 when Dave Pelzer entered foster care. Dave begins his incredible story as an abused child with his rescue in part one of a series, A Child Called "It". Calling this book a "page turner" doesn't give it justice. Easy to read, but difficult to comprehend how any mother could treat her child this way.

Book by Dave Pelzer

No child left inside! The recipient of the 2008 Audubon Medal, Richard Louv identified a phenomenon we all knew existed but couldn't quite articulate: nature-deficit disorder. About the disconnection between children and nature. Nature-Deficit Disorder and extraneous shopping are without a doubt connected. Everyone craves beauty. So many are surrounded by store windows and computer screens instead of nature. #nature #illness #dissociation #outdoors #play #children #child

used to resent that women were segregated during their "lady days" until I read this and realized it was a monthly vacation. Interesting

Love it!! I read it with my students every year.

You will be horrified by how the Chinese can mutilate their feet like that and what they think beautiful is. But think about what we "modern" day girls do to our bodies to look beautiful. The Chinese would be truly horrified also.

These books are wonderful for read aloud and children just starting chapter books. I like them to teach my children that the world wasn't always run by electronic junk... and asked questions like... what would you do today with no telephone? No car? I found it helped them look at their surroundings differently.

My favorite book in the world!!! It is a classic, old book but it is so much better then Tom Sawyer or any of those books!!! Best book in the world ♥ and it makes it better that Jack London wrote it!:D I even get to read it again in english class this year....yay!! Just read this!
