From the author of the phenomenal multi-million copy bestseller The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down
"Hearing the words 'be good to yourself first, then to others' was like being struck by lightning."
Many of us respond to the pressures of life by turning inwards and ignoring problems, sometimes resulting in anxiety or depression. Others react by working harder at work, at school or at home, hoping that this will make ourselves and the people we love happier.
But what if being yourself is enough? Just as we are advised on airplanes to take our own oxygen first before helping others, we must first be at peace with ourselves before we can be at peace with the world around us.
In this beautiful follow-up to his international bestseller The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down, Buddhist monk Haemin Sunim turns his trademark wisdom and kindness to self-care, arguing that only by accepting yourself - and the flaws which make you who you are - can you have compassionate and fulfilling relationships with your partner, family and friends.
"Even products labelled 'limited edition' are made on a production line with hundreds that are exactly the same. But there is only one you in the world."
The second original, touching, twisted, and most of all hilarious novel for children from David Walliams, number one bestseller and fastest growing children's author in the country - beautifully illustrated by Quentin Blake.
"Mr Stink stank. He also stunk. And if it was correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well..."
It all starts when Chloe makes friends with Mr Stink, the local tramp. Yes, he smells a bit. But when it looks like he might be driven out of town, Chloe decides to hide him in the garden shed.
Now Chloe's got to make sure no one finds out her secret. And speaking of secrets, there just might be more to Mr Stink than meets the eye... or the nose.
Michelle Obama: First Lady, Going Higher (Step into Reading) by Shana Corey (Author), James Bernardin
A Step 3 biography of esteemed lawyer and former First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama! Michelle Obama is a lot like YOU! She grew up on the South Side of Chicago with her brother, Craig. She rode her bike and played freeze tag with her friends. And she and her family ate dinner together every night! Michelle’s parents taught her to work hard and not let anyone or anything stand in her way. That work ethic has propelled her through her whole life–through her magnet high school, her college years at Princeton, and Harvard Law School. Her parents also taught her to reach back and help others once she found success, evidence of which is everywhere in her work as First Lady of the United States and beyond. Step 3 Readers feature engaging characters in easy-to-follow plots about popular topics–for children who are ready to read on their own.
