»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

Man sieht mit dem Herzen: Ein kleines Mädchen, neugierig und wissensbedürftig hat den Kopf voller Fragen und findet in ihrem Opa einen geduldigen Zuhörer und Erklärer. Er weiss über viel Bescheid und gibt es sehr gerne an sie weiter, ob am Meer oder in der Nacht, immer weiss sie, dass sie ihn auf seinem Sessel finden kann. Aber eines Tages ist der Sessel leer. Verunsichert und um es wirklich nicht zu verlieren, packt sie ihr Herz in eine Flasche und hängt sie sich um den Hals. Aber nun ist nichts mehr wie zuvor, Sterne, Ozean, sie hat keine Fragen mehr, die einzige Änderung ist die Flasche, die immer schwerer und hässlicher wird. Bis sie jemanden trifft, der kleiner und jünger ist und voller Fragen, wie sie früher. Sie beschliesst, ihr Herz wieder aus der Flasche zu holen, benötigt aber noch einmal Hilfe dazu. Ihr Herz kehrt an seinen Platz zurück und auch der Sessel ist nicht mehr so leer. Ein wunderschön illustriertes Buch zum Thema Trauern und dem Verlust von einer Person, der man nahe stand. Aber auch wie wichtig es für ein Kind ist, immer eine Ansprechsperson für alle Anliegen und Fragen zu haben. Ab 5 Jahren, *****, Monika Hedinger.

All human beings encounter loss and death, as well as the grief associated with these experiences. It is therefore important for children and adolescents to understand that such events are inevitable and to learn how to accept loss and cope with their emotions. In order to help children through their pain, parents and caregivers need access to the proper resources that will help them discuss these topics, and educational professionals need reliable resources for creating courses of study on these subjects. In Death, Loss, and Grief in Literature for Youth, Alice Crosetto and Rajinder Garcha identify hundreds of resources that will help educators, professionals, parents, siblings, guardians, and students learn about coping with the loss of a loved one and the grief process. These resources include books, Internet sites, and media titles aimed at students and those helping them through the grieving process. Chapters in this volume include fiction and non-fiction titles about the loss of a family member, a friend, and a pet, as well as general reference resources, curricular resources, and websites. Annotations provide complete bibliographical descriptions of the entries, and each entry is identified with the grade levels for which it is best suited. Reviews from recognized publications are also included wherever possible. Anyone interested in locating helpful resources regarding death and grieving will find much of value in this essential tool.

Read Pam Allyn's posts on the Penguin Blog The books to read aloud to children at the important moments in their lives. In What to Read When, award-winning educator Pam Allyn celebrates the power of reading aloud with children. In many ways, books provide the first opportunity for children to begin to reflectively engage with and understand the world around them. Not only can parents entertain their child and convey the beauty of language through books, they can also share their values and create lasting connections. Here, Allyn offers parents and caregivers essential advice on choosing appropriate titles for their children—taking into account a child’s age, attention ability, gender, and interests— along with techniques for reading aloud effectively. But what sets this book apart is the extraordinary, annotated list of more than three hundred titles suitable for the pivotal moments in a child’s life. With category themes ranging from friendship and journeys to thankfulness, separations, silliness, and spirituality, What to Read When is a one-of-a-kind guide to how parents can best inspire children through reading together. In addition, Pam Allyn includes an indispensable “Reader’s Ladder” section, with recommendations for children at every stage from birth to age ten. With the author’s warm and engaging voice throughout, discussion questions to encourage in-depth conversations, as well as advice on helping kids make the transition to independent reading, this book will help shape thoughtful, creative, and curious children, imparting a love of reading that will last a lifetime.
