I remember reading Enid Blyton as a child and adored her action packed adventure stories. I was whisked away to a land of make believe; and now my six year old son is too. I love reading to him every night, and he loves it too. Mr Saucepan Man makes him giggle everytime.
Storytime is a joy once again. Childhood rules. Must buy for every kids bookshelf.
This is an excellent overview on the affects of child abuse on an adult. Alice Miller was and still is a force in her field. A must read, if you're going into counselling/coaching or pyschology, the case studies were excellent.
