Books to Engage the Whole Family

For the Middle Schooler: ‘The Night Diary’ 12-year-old Nisha navigates her world after the partition of India creates the new country of Pakistan and her family is forced to leave their home. Her mother may be gone, but Nisha finds solace in writing nightly letters to her in her diary as she discovers what the future holds. Based on author Veera Hiranandani’s memories of her own family, this moving tale lets readers experience life through someone else’s eyes. For Teens: ‘Brazen: Rebel Ladies Who Rocked the World’ While some might not think of comics as proper reading, Penelope Bagieu’s graphic novel forces reconsideration. Her clever, colorful artwork and engaging narrative take the reader through the biographies of 30 women, from Bette Davis and Mae Jemison to lesser-known but equally intriguing ladies like Giorgina Reid. All in all, this book provides a great way to get kids excited about history in an entertaining form.

Learning to read opens up a world of possibilities. When your child walks through the back of the wardrobe into Narnia with Lucy Pevensie or rides with Harry Potter on the train to Hogwarts, they connect to something beyond their own experiences. In the U.S., April 23 is World Book Day, and the date commemorates the deaths of legendary authors Cervantes, Shakespeare, and Garcilaso de la Vega, as well as the birth of author Vladimir Nabokov. World Book Day is the perfect time to sit down with your family and let yourself be transported to new worlds. So, here are three great stories to help you take young readers on brand-new adventures. “Song of the Wild” makes a great read-aloud book for beginner readers because they can get lost in the beautiful artwork while you read the text. Written in prose and rhyming poems, this book showcases sprawling landscapes — savannahs, jungles, and oceans — and features the wildlife living there. It’s worth a read simply to appreciate the colorful depictions of each animal. This book was written by Nicola Davies and illustrated by Petr Horácek. For the Elementary Reader: ‘Song of the Wild: A First Book of Animals’

A Pain-Free Tomorrow OUR PAT I ENTS SAY I T BEST

“Dr. Adams offered excellent service, professional

“After many months of severe pain in my lower back and a shooting pain in my leg and thigh, my doctor finally set me up for physical therapy. I met with Dr. Adams and explained to him how I couldn’t stand for any length of time without having severe pain. I couldn’t even walk a short distance without pain shooting down my leg and thigh. He was very caring and thorough. He set me up with a program that worked perfectly well for me. Now I’m able to stand several hours with minimal to no pain! I’mwalking a couple of miles every other day with joy, not pain! Thank you Horizon Physical Therapy, Dr. Adams, and staff, very much!”

support, convenient appointment times, nice facility, and kind staff. His knowledge of client needs was impressive. I recommend everyone come here for physical therapy.”
