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.

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.

Friends can be SHORT. Friends can be LONG. Doesn’t matter what they look like . . . Friends all get along!

Maybe You Should Talk to Someone

Have compassion, have compassion, have compassion. I repeat my mantra, then refocus on John … and just then, something occurs to me: what John has been talking about sounds eerily familiar. As a therapist, Lori knows a lot about pain, about the ways in which pain is tied to loss, and how change and loss travel together. She knows how affirming it feels to blame the outside world for her frustrations, to deny ownership of whatever role she might have in the existential play called My Incredibly Important Life. When a devastating event takes place in Lori’s life, she realises that, before being able to help her patients, she must first learn how to help herself. Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is the story of an incredible relationship — between Lori, a therapist at a critical life juncture, and her own therapist, Wendell, a veteran therapist with an unconventional style. Through their sessions, Wendell teaches Lori how to become a better person and a better therapist, as she goes about the business of helping her own patients — the couple who are struggling after having a baby, the narcissist TV producer, the older woman who feels she has nothing to live for, the self-destructive alcoholic young woman, the terminally ill 35-year-old newlywed. Taking place over one year, beginning with the devastating event that lands her in Wendell’s office, this is a rare and candid insight into a profession conventionally bound with rules and secrecy, told with charm and compassion, vulnerability and humour.

Das neue Buch von Spiegel-Bestseller-Autorin Sheryl Sandberg: Nach Lean In schreibt sie zusammen mit dem Psychologie-Professor Adam Grant darüber, wie wir Schicksalsschläge überwinden können. »Option A gibt es nicht mehr. Also lasst uns das Beste aus Option B machen. Ich werde immer um Option A trauern. So wie Bono gesungen hat: Die Trauer endet niemals ... aber auch nicht die Liebe.« Die Welt nahm Anteil, als Sheryl Sandbergs Ehemann Dave Goldberg im Frühjahr 2015 plötzlich verstarb. Sie, die erfolgreiche COO von Facebook, und ihre Kinder fielen in ein tiefes Loch, Freude zu empfinden, schien nie mehr möglich zu sein. »Du kannst dich in den Abgrund fallen lassen, der Leere, die dein Herz füllt und deine Lungen, die dein Denken verengt und dir den Atem abschnürt. Oder du kannst versuchen, einen Sinn darin zu finden.« Dabei hat Sheryl Sandberg ihr guter Freund Adam Grant geholfen, der ihr konkrete Anleitung gab, wie Menschen nach niederschmetternden Schicksalsschlägen schrittweise wieder zurück ins Leben finden können. Jeder muss mit Verlusten leben: Wir verlieren Jobs, Ehen zerbrechen, Angehörige sterben. Doch wir können lernen mit persönlichen Katastrophen umzugehen. Gemeinsam mit Adam Grant erzählt Sheryl Sandberg offen von der Trauer um ihren Mann und dem Willen weiterzuleben. Ergänzend zu ihrer eigenen Erfahrung schildert sie neue wissenschaftliche Erkenntnissen aus der Resilienzforschung und berichtet von Menschen, die Arbeitslosigkeit und Armut, Scheidung, Krankheit und Verletzungen überstanden haben. Wir alle können resilienter werden. Und wir können anderen im Umgang mit Tragödien helfen, indem wir über Unsagbares sprechen, unsere Partnerschaften für Krisen stärken, sichere und flexible Arbeitsplätze schaffen und unsere Kinder zu eigenständigen Menschen erziehen.
