Every mistake is an opportunity to make something beautiful. This is the central idea of Beautiful Oops!, Barney Saltzberg’s beloved bestseller—and now My Book of Beautiful Oops!, an interactive journal for young artists, takes that principle into unexpected new directions. A hands-on journal that’s meant to be personalized—drawn in, painted on, torn up, smudged, or otherwise artistically wrecked—My Book of Beautiful Oops! is filled with folded, crumpled, die-cut, and lift-the-flap pages that will challenge the reader’s sense of play. The friendly green alligator from the first book prompts the reader: Bend a page. Decorate a smudge. Play with splats and spills. Even complete a poem that was accidentally ripped in half. My Beautiful Book of Oops! champions imagination, play, and the courage to express oneself. It’s about self-forgiveness, about turning off that inner critic that clamors for perfection. And it’s about freedom—the freedom to be creative and follow your curiosity wherever it goes. That’s a lesson to celebrate.
A life lesson that all parents want their children to learn: It’s OK to make a mistake. In fact, hooray for mistakes! A mistake is an adventure in creativity, a portal of discovery. A spill doesn’t ruin a drawing—not when it becomes the shape of a goofy animal. And an accidental tear in your paper? Don’t be upset about it when you can turn it into the roaring mouth of an alligator. An award winning, best-selling, one-of-a-kind interactive book, Beautiful Oops! shows young readers how every mistake is an opportunity to make something beautiful. A singular work of imagination, creativity, and paper engineering, Beautiful Oops! is filled with pop-ups, lift-the-flaps, tears, holes, overlays, bends, smudges, and even an accordion “telescope”—each demonstrating the magical transformation from blunder to wonder.

Das Angstmacherchen ist ein digitales Hör- und Bilderbuch für Kinder ab 4 Jahren. Kinder können sich die Mutmach-Geschichte von Ole, seinen Freunden und ihrer Jagd auf das Angstmacherchen nicht nur wie im Bilderbuch anschauen, sie können sie sich auch von Bernd Stelter vorlesen lassen. Wir empfehlen, die Displayverriegelung Ihres iPads zu aktivieren und das Buch hochkant zu lesen. Durch einen Doppelklick auf die Bilder werden sie vergrößert und nehmen so den ganzen Bildschirm ein. Ole ist ein mutiger Junge. Er traut sich den Fahrradlenker loszulassen, ins tiefe Schwimmbecken zu gehen und sogar in den finsteren Keller. Aber wenn ein Gewitter kommt, dann ist von Ole nichts zu sehen - dann versteckt er sich, weil er Angst hat. Und eines Nachts erfährt Ole auch, woher das kommt: er sieht das kleine Angstmacherchen, das für jedes Kind eine andere Angst in seiner Truhe mitbringt und diese verstreut. Doch Ole will seine Furcht besiegen und stellt sich, gemeinsam mit seinen Freunden, dem fiesen Angstmacherchen, um es zu verjagen
Mein Mädchen. Glaub an dich, folge deinem Herzen und höre niemals auf zu staunen. Für mein Mädchen ist eine Liebeserklärung an all die Mädchen dieser Welt. Auf jeder einzelnen Seite feiert es die Einzigartigkeit eines jeden Mädchens und ermuntert dazu, stolz und stark man selbst zu sein; aus der Reihe zu tanzen, wenn es nötig ist, und Nein zu sagen, wenn man »Nein« denkt. Es ist ein inspirierender Mutmacher, Starkmacher und Glücklichmacher, das jedes (kleine und große) Mädchen wie eine liebevolle Umarmung daran erinnern soll, dass es geliebt wird und etwas ganz Besonderes ist.
Sie werden sicher denken, dass ein Buch ohne Bilder langweilig und sehr ernst ist. Außer ... wenn das Buch so funktioniert: Alles, was in diesem Buch steht, MUSS vorgelesen werden. Selbst wenn da steht: BLORK oder BLuuRF. Selbst wenn es sich um ein absurdes Lied handelt, das davon erzählt, wie Sie einen Floh zum Frühstück verspeisen. Selbst wenn dieses Buch Sie dazu bringt, komische und peinliche Geräusche zu machen. Und vor allem – wenn Sie und Ihre Kinder nicht mehr aufhören können zu lachen! Wunderbar schräg und total albern – Das Buch ohne Bilder gehört zu den Büchern, die Kinder immer wieder vorgelesen haben wollen und Eltern immer wieder gerne vorlesen. Sagen Sie nicht, wir hätten Sie nicht gewarnt – dieses Buch kennt kein Erbarmen! Mit Audio-Lesung. Gesamtspielzeit: 4:50 Min. E-Book mit Audio-Links: Je nach Hardware/Software können die Audio-Links direkt auf dem Endgerät abgespielt werden. In jedem Fall können die Audio-Links über jede Browser-Software geöffnet und über ein Audiogerät abgespielt werden.

The myth of fixed intelligence debunked For all the productive conversation around “mindsets,” what’s missing are the details of how to convince our discouraged and underperforming students that “smart is something you can get.” Until now. With the publication of High-Expectations Teaching, Jon Saphier reveals once and for all evidence that the bell curve of ability is plain wrong—that ability is something that can be grown significantly if we can first help students to believe in themselves. In drill-down detail, Saphier provides an instructional playbook for increasing student confidence and agency in the daily flow of classroom life: Powerful strategies for attribution retraining, organized around 50 Ways to Get Students to Believe in Themselves Concrete examples, scripts, and classroom structures and routines for empowering student agency and choice Dozens of accompanying videos showing high-expectations strategies in action All children in all schools, regardless of income or social class, will benefit from the strategies in this book. But for children of poverty and children of color, our proficiency with these skills is essential . . . in many ways life saving. Jon Saphier challenges us all—educators, students, and parents—to get started today. About Jon Saphier The author of nine books, including The Skillful Teacher, Jon Saphier is founder and president of Research for Better Teaching, Inc. (RBT), a professional development organization dedicated since 1979 to improving classroom teaching and school leadership throughout the United States and internationally.
This book has got a lot of good bits. It's got penguins and toasted sandwiches and spotting knives. It's got a dead cat and an incredible climax. It's got a really little dolphin. It's got sea lions. It's got God. It's got a really cool lighthouse. When Nige runs over a Norwegian backpacker while attempting to save petrol, his life really turns to shit. He throws the body in a nearby road works and runs to his best mate of fifteen years, Deano. The trouble is, Deano's not really the guy you should turn to in a crisis.

In Friends Come in Different Sizes, he introduces readers to all his delightful friends—some who are tall and some who are taller, and some who are small and some who are smaller. Friends can be SHORT. Friends can be LONG. Doesn’t matter what they look like . . . Friends all get along!
»Wir werden leuchten wie Sterne.« Piper, ihr Freund Enzo und ihre beste Freundin Kit haben keine Lust, normal zu sein. Sie wollen das Leben fühlen, ihren Träumen folgen, sich von nichts aufhalten lassen. Und sie wollen nach New York, wo all das möglich scheint. Doch kurz bevor die Schule endlich vorbei ist, geht alles schief: Kit fällt durch die Aufnahmeprüfung für die Kunsthochschule, Piper wird zwar angenommen, aber ihre Eltern können die Studiengebühren nicht aufbringen. Und Pipers große Liebe Enzo gesteht ihr, dass er sich verliebt hat – in einen Jungen. Alle Träume zerplatzen, Pipers Pläne sind plötzlich nur noch Chaos und Zweifel, aber dickköpfig hält sie daran fest. Denn WENIGER, KLEINER, VERNÜNFTIGER oder EINFACH ist für Piper keine Option. Sie will leuchten. Das Tagebuch einer Träumerin!

It’s hard to really choose. . . . It’s hard to really know! And that’s the reason why I love . . . the colors of the rainbow!
