Do you know a child who struggles with worry? Is fear holding them back from being the best they can be? In A.B.C. Worry Free, author and neuroeducation consultant Noel Foy has developed an actionable approach to worry that will help children process everyday challenges and work through them. "You'd be surprised what you can teach someone with the right attitude." "Do you think you could teach someone to worry less?" Chris chuckled. "Absolutely. As long as they're not afraid to learn something new." With anxiety among children at double-digit growth, adults are looking for tools children can adopt into their daily practice to manage those feelings. Using a clear three-step plan to shift their perspective on anxious or fearful thoughts, children can regain control over the vicious anxiety cycle.

Dusty Dreams and Troubled Waters Excerpt :

They said I was a sailor, now. But this was my first time on the ocean. And I was going to war... By 1942 most of Europe was under the heel of the Nazis. Only the United Kingdom remained free to oppose them. Knowing Britain needed supplies from overseas, the German navy built a large fleet of U-boats to hunt merchant ships. It was up to Canada to protect all shipping from North America to Britain. Corvettes like HMCS Sackville were crewed by young men from across Canada, and from all walks of life. The Battle of the Atlantic (1939-1945), the longest of the Second World War, was Canada's battle, and the outcome sealed Hitler's fate. Following twelve-year-old Wally as he leaves the family farm on the prairies to pursue a daring career in the navy--leaving love interest Winnie behind--this striking graphic novel is a high-stakes adventure, a love story, and an important historical lesson. Features meticulously detailed black and white drawings, an illustrated diagram of the Sackville, information on wartime propaganda, glossary, and an illustrated map.

The Sea Captain s Wife Excerpt :

Growing up on the Bay of Fundy, Azuba Galloway dreams of going to sea. She watches magnificent ships slowly making their way into Whelan’s Cove, the sense of exoticism bursting from their holds along with foreign goods. As a young woman, Azuba marries a seasoned merchant sea captain, Nathaniel Bradstock. Unwilling to have him away at sea for most of their married life, and anxious to see far shores, she extracts a promise that he will take her with him. But Azuba becomes pregnant soon after they marry and Nathaniel knows too well the perils of life on a ship. He reneges on his promise and refuses to allow Azuba to join him. When Nathaniel leaves on his journey, Azuba desperately misses her husband. Days turn into weeks and months – voyages can take two, three years before the ship and crew return home. Despite her loneliness, Azuba becomes a strong, independent woman, caring for her child and her home. With her parents and beloved grandmother nearby, she settles into a life of quietude and predictability, all the while yearning to be by her husband’s side aboard his ship. Her loneliness eventually propels her into a friendship with the local vicar, Reverend Simon Walton. He is a quiet, kind and contemplative man, and Azuba takes comfort and enjoyment in their increasingly intimate friendship. One afternoon, despite her misgivings, Azuba goes on a picnic with the vicar and becomes trapped by the tide. When they return home the next morning, Azuba and Reverend Walton have become a topic of gossip. When Nathaniel returns home he is enraged by her impropriety. Reluctantly he decides to take Azuba and their young daughter, Carrie, with him on his next voyage. Mother and child are loaded from a rowboat and hauled onto the weather deck along with barrels of coal and crates of chickens. Nathaniel has drawn a line across the deck. “You’ll never again cross that line,” he instructs Azuba. It is October 1862. It will be three years before Azuba sees the shores of W
