Using a journal format, 12-year-old Maya chronicles her emotional ups and downs and describes the process of psychotherapy. She begins by describing a change in her feelings and functioning: a lack of interest in things she used to love, difficulties in school, and problems getting along with her friends and family none of the problems extreme but serious enough to merit attention and intervention. The problems are portrayed as quite general, in order to reach the widest possible audience. The focus is not about resolving Maya's particular problems but about informing the reader about the process of psychotherapy and its potential usefulness. By the end of the book, Maya is feeling better. She has discovered that changes in her family affected her more than she realized, has become aware of the suppressed feelings that have gnawed away at her, and has learned to deal with them more openly, with the result that she is back to being her old (true) self.Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 1/1/2005Pages: 48Reading Level: Age 8 and Up

Bundle includes: Does A Bear Wear Boots? + Does A Woodpecker Use A Hammer + Does A Camel Cook Spaghetti? + Does A Beaver Sleep In A Bed? + Does A Panda Go To School? Does A Bear Wear Boots?: This title in the Think About... series shows that while every animal needs things to protect it from the elements, only people can produce and choose to wear different kinds of clothing. A funny, kid-like question ("Does an ox wear an overcoat?") shows the animal in a silly scenario (e.g., sporting a purple coat). A turn of the page reveals why animals don't need clothes via a few facts about each animal's physiology, habitat, and habits. The pattern follows for a chimp, donkey, bear, and duck. Next, the function and options in human clothing is presented. A final "Think About" spread presents kids, parents, and teachers with activities that relate to and extend each book's subject matter. Does A Woodpecker Use A Hammer?: This title in the Think About... series explores and explains that while some animals do indeed use tools, only people have developed things that make it possible to do things that their bodies cannot. A funny, kid-like question ("Does a woodpecker use a hammer?") is shown with a silly scenario (a woodpecker in a toolbelt), and a few thoughts and facts about that animal's use of their body as a type of tool. Other animals are featured, including those that might use a stick or some such as a tool, which then leads into an exploration of how humans create, re-use, and refine tools to solve problems and accomplish tasks. Does A Camel Cook Spaghetti?: This title in the Think About... series explores and explains that while every animal eats, only people can cook. A funny, kid-like question ("Does a camel cook?") is paired with a silly scenario (a camel with a chef's toque and saucepan). A turn of the page reveals the answer (camels grazing on grass and leaves), and a few facts about that animal's food and eating habits. The pattern follows through for a squirrel, raccoon, bear, chimp, and a dog, culminating with people producing, preparing, and distributing the food they eat. A final "think about" spread presents kids, parents, and teachers with activities that relate to and extend each book's subject matter. Does A Beaver Sleep In A Bed?: This title explores and explains that while every animal sleeps, only some have beds. A funny, kid-like question ("Does a beaver sleep in a bed?") is paired with a silly scenario (a beaver gnawing at a headboard). A turn of the page reveals the answer, a picture of the critter in an authentic setting (a beaver asleep in his lodge), and a few facts about that animal's sleepytime habits and habitat. The pattern follows with a baboon, polar bear, bumblebee, horse, and dog, culminating with people in different kinds of beds. A final "Think About" spread presents kids, parents, and teachers with activities that relate to and extend each book's subject matter. Does A Panda Go To School?: This title in the Think About... series explores and explains that while animals can do and learn some things, only people can fully participate in all the things that happen at school. A funny, kid-like question ("Does an armadillo go to school?") is shown with a silly scenario (armadillo seated in a story circle), and a few thoughts and facts about that animal's non-school-oriented habits (e.g., an armadillo can't sit and listen to a story). A panda and ostrich are also featured. Then we see what a chimp could (painting, snack time, monkey bars!) and could not do (read, sing, say words) at school. A final "think about" spread presents kids, parents, and teachers with activities that relate to and extend each book's subject matter.
