This work lucidates bell hooks' social and educational theory, with emphasis on her 1994 book, Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom. Florence deals with the issues of marginality and cultural alienation that are so prevalent among certain groups within the American society and presents strategies to help develop critical consciousness and affirmation of formerly subordinated cultural traits and characteristics. Her study resonates with current themes raised by critical, feminist and multicultural scholars showing how marginalized groups may be guilty of reinforcing their own status through complicity with the dominant culture's world view, and how education can empower them to demand a more egalitarian society and one that recognizes cultural plurality.

On a tiny island lives a waddle of Little Penguins. But their numbers are dwindling.
Swampy Marsh knows what to do, but no one will listen.
Soon he can count the last few penguins on the fingers of one hand.
The desperate townsfolk give Swampy, and his friends Max and Mimi, one chance.

Will his solution work? Will Swampy save the Little Penguins of Middle Island?

A warmly funny account of one man’s quest to save a penguin colony, with two very unusual helpers. This story is based on events that took place on Middle Island, Warrnambool and have become well known to the public. This true story, which features both human and animal heroes, has been written as a heartwarming tale by Diane Jackson Hill. Craig Smith’s lively illustrations capture all the drama and humour of the predicament and the characters involved.

We are busy people-sometimes so busy making a living that we forget to stay connected with those we love. We even forget to make memories.

This was not the case for Marion Mosley, a busy Southern Illinois man who served as farmer, salesman, pastor, fisherman, and father, among other things. He wrote down events he remembered about author Wilda Young's childhood and insisted that she do the same. The result is Fishhooks in Treetops.

It recalls fishing trips, spelling contests, revival meetings, music lessons, disciplinary actions, racial tension, and tragic accidents.

This memoir shares entertaining events in the life of a Christian family in the fifties and sixties. They illustrate that all families experience joys and sorrows as children grow up. Opportunities for teaching and learning abound!

Join Wilda Young and her father as they connect on this memorable trip. Observe their relationship as they tangle their fishing lines and tangle with each other. See how their remembered events shape character and teach valuable lessons.

Fishhooks in Treetops seeks to inspire you to make connections for your own journey down memory lane.
