With Random acts of kindness during Covid 19 ~ Our world may be a better place when we all get back to our lives #WATWB

banner-520-x120-white WATB wide
The #WATWB was created as a mission to negate the overwhelming negativity that has been present in our social media streams. For every negative news story in the world, there are plenty of positive, uplifting stories that show hope, compassion and the resiliency of everyday people who face insurmountable challenges. Our hope is to share heartwarming stories that lift the human spirit.
The last Friday of every month bloggers will share their stories led by six co-hosts, this month’s co-host will be:
By now, you are probably sick of all the bad news COVID19 has brought world wide. Cases are rising daily, new countries going into lockdown, travel plans just not happening. So far this year is not looking very bright, is it?However, there is no need for us to feel like the end of the world is here. Over decades our parents and grandparents have survived as we will too.

There has been  a lot of harm to many people in so many ways as the result of COVID-19. It’s a sad and serious situation.

It has, however,  also brought people together. Political parties, city officials have all worked together to help ease the financial burdens for the families in need, changing laws to help being housebound or a fear of losing one’s job a little more bearable.

We must not forget the wonderful nurses and doctors who have worked so hard in the hospitals and of course the first responders, and it is not over yet.  I would like to extend “A special thank you to all!”

Today I  am just showing the way random acts of kindness, have given people hope that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and life could be a lot better for us all.

Professor Owl’s Book Corner ~ Covid-19 Special Edition 3~ April 19 2020

Yes!!!  ~ It is still necessary to continue

“Personal Distancing.”

             Not just for you but your family, loved ones and friends, by following proper  distancing you, are also stopping the spreading of Covid 19

It has been several weeks since due to the virus Covid19 people in most countries have been requested by their Governments to practice ” Personal Distancing” when  out in the streets of cities and towns.  Every one was told to stay home, wash your hands frequently no visiting family, playing sports,  going out with friends, in fact in most countries business have closed their doors and workers have been laid off or are working from home.   Hospitals, Senior Homes, Stores and other businesses that are are essential businesses like buses, transport drivers also doctors, nurses, caregivers, police and firemen, some who deal with people in stores,  are wearing masks; in every else MUST stay at home and if you have to shop get it over quickly and get back home as soon as you can. In most countries, schools are closed, and most young people miss their friends and family that do not live close by.

Parks and playground are closed so as not to spread the virus and if you do walk on the streets to keep personal distancing in mind keep  6ft or 2 meters away from other people all this will help us get back to normal quicker, and as the Mayor of my city recently said it is OK  not to be Ok.

There are phone lines where children and adults can call for assurance, ask questions and just tell them how and why you are worried.

All this makes it very hard on families especially parents, who may have some have financial problems if their hours have been cut, some are very anxious about their children getting the Covid-19 or their parents in a nursing home or family who live a distance away.

Teenagers and young adults are just not made for isolation which makes COVID-19 especially hard on you. First,you must try to see the big picture and how it can affect your family. Everywhere parents are worried about getting their son or daughter into a safe place.

Social isolation is hard for humans of all ages. But because you are teenagers or young adult you are more attuned to social status than the rest of us, it is even more profoundly distressing for you.

You are generally so attuned to social status you may get touchy about whether, or not your parents are treating you like a child, when they insist that you stay home in sheltered place.

By acting like competent young adults rather than little kid you can contribute to your household in meaningful ways. By helping with meal preparation and household cleaning. Keeping conflict low amid tight quarters is a meaningful contribution.

Planning fun activities for the family to do together might be the most essential contribution of all!

By managing yourself, schoolwork, and other responsibilities without being nagged or cajoled does not mean that you won’t be engaged with them. It does mean however, that they will probably give you space to operate freely within the limits agreed to as a family.

Acknowledge that all of this is so hard. Many students coming home from school are experiencing significant losses right now. Your feelings of grief, anxiety, stress, and isolation are hard to cope with. One of the great lessons of adulthood is that they can do hard things  ~ So can you!

You can also tap into your high attunement to the social world by emphasizing how your lives do have a purpose, meaning, and impact on other people.

Ask yourself ~

How are your actions directly affecting the course of this crisis?

What do you genuinely care most about in this crisis?

Above all, please see that this situation is not about what you want or expect from life. It’s about what life is expecting from you right now. Your parents and everyone expect you to rise to the occasion; to be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem.

With that in mind, please enjoy  the topics and ideas we give you this week, I know that many of you are celebrating religious holiday that come up within it  the next week or two.

Try some of the ideas on your own, or ask your parents or sibling to enjoy them too and try to forget what is happening outside you front door.

Zero Repeat Forever

Gabrielle Prendergast

Welcome to the website of Young Adult and Middle Grade author, Gabrielle Prendergast! Here you can learn about Gabrielle’s books, read her blog posts (warning, she’s a ranter), and just generally get to know more about her. You can like Gabrielle’s Facebook Page!

Zero Repeat Forever an exceptional alien invasion story. It takes place after much of the world has already surrendered to the Nahx. A diverse group of teens and young adults set to serve as camp counselors have managed to evade alien detection, but now find themselves running low on food and patience. Eager for information, rescue, and fellow humans, they strike out to discover what still exists outside their corner of the forest.

The 5th Wave meets Beauty and the Beast in this fast-paced and heart-stopping novel about an invasion of murderous creatures and one girl fighting for her life at the end of the world.

e has no voice or name, only a rank, Eighth. He doesn’t know the details of the mission, only the directives that hum in his mind.

Dart the humans. Leave them where they fall.

His job is to protect his Offside. Let her do the shooting.

Until human kills her boyfriend

Sixteen-year-old Raven is at summer camp when the terrifying armored Nahx invade. Isolated in the wilderness, Raven and her fellow campers can only stay put. Await rescue. Raven does not like feeling helpless, but what choice does she have?

Then a Nahx kills her boyfriend.

Thrown together in a violent, unfamiliar world, Eighth and Raven should feel only hate and fear. But when Raven is injured, and Eighth deserts his unit, their survival comes to depend on trusting each other.

This was a fast-paced story which kept my interest to the end. I loved the characters in this novel. The interactions between Eighth and Rave are priceless and bring to light the fine line between love and hate.

Even though the book ends with a cliffhanger, I was totally pleased with this story and delighted by all the unanswered questions that were brought to light in the final pages. So many important things were resolved, the unexplored issues brought up at the end were just enough to expand an already interesting story into a myriad of new possibilities that made me reconsider everything I had read. Great stuff!

Zero Repeat Forever is a professionally  written alien invasion story filled with violence and suspense. It is also filled with an uncommon amount of empathy, love, and hope. A wonderful combination that results in a memorable read and an enthusiastic recommendation for older teens and adults.

 Detention Land

Detention LandF

By Susan Orion

Throughout the book, Susan Orion’s writing is clear, detailed and humorous.  The author certainly got into the mind of a thirteen-year-old teen.  Rogers was a very relatable and believable character.  His thoughts and actions were reflective of the way children actually behave and think. Roger is thrown into detention constantly for his mischievous antics. I just had to solve the mystery of the disembodied voice speaking to Roger through the wall.  I found the book fun and enjoyable and could not put it down until I had finished it.

I would highly recommend this book for all ages not just the teens it was intended for.

Professor Owls Book Corner ~ April 2020

Welcome to the April 2020 Issue of Professor Owl’s Book Corner Newsletter where in addition to supporting those with special needs and learning challenges, we are also committed to being more focused on YA/New Adult reading and literacy. We will be featuring tips from a certified literacy tutor to help make your reading experience the best it can be.

Please feel free to give us your feedback on our new issue, also send us any ideas you may have to help Professor Owl’s Book Corner be all that it can be. We look forward to hearing from you and to bring you a new, more interesting newsletter.

It seems that since our March newsletter so much has changed in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re all living with fear and uncertainty and our hearts go out to all of you, especially if you have been personally affected by this horrible illness.

Professor Owl’s Book Corner is aware of the fact also that many of you are confined to your own homes and unable to visit and play with your friends. no hockey no basketball, in fact, most of you, are bored and just do not know what to do, we hope to give you some ideas.

Covid 19 ~ Social Distancing

In this months newsletter, we will continue to bring you some great things to try and who knows perhaps you may also find a new skill.

Have a Netflix party online without having something like this to look forward to can pick a movie a day or two beforehand so you can get excited about it. Make it over the top with a treat buffet, a big introduction to the movie, and a discussion about the plot, themes, and characters afterwards. Or plan an online party with friends!

Free Online Courses

There are lots of places for free online classes. If you want something specific, learn how to code or music/painting basics or take a quick google to find something your teens are specifically interested in!

Virtual Museum Tours

Most museums are closed to help contain the virus, but you can still check them out from the comfort of your home! Check out the Louvre, The British Museum, or The Smithsonian. The Google Arts and Culture site is full of amazing artworks, artists, and history to discover.

Learn Cooking Basics

Ask a parent to teach you some basic cooking skills. Start with some easy baking essentials like cookies or cupcakes. For something practical, learn how to properly boil pasta, make a basic homemade sauce, and some meatballs. Already past that? There are always more complex and interesting things to learn in the kitchen. Check this link for some inspiration.

Yard Work

It is the season. As the snow melts, it’s time to bring out the shovels to spread it out, clean up any garbage that got buried, rake up the leaves and spruce up the lawn. Spring is a great time to learn just how much work goes into proper lawn maintenance.

Start Indoor Seeds for a Summer Garden

It’s a great time to start thinking about getting those herbs and vegetables started indoors. Teach them all about the best time of year to plant what, proper care for each individual plant, and how to handle seeds to ensure a full, luscious garden this summer. This will help you to look forward to warmer, brighter, and easier times.

Board Game Night

Back to basics: no videos, no controllers, just good old fashioned board games. Try one that might take a few tries to get the hang of, and make a tally board in your house to keep track of who’s got the most wins. Dust off the old Monopoly set, pull out Risk or order something new off Amazon. Try Codenames, Pandemic (if you can handle it), or Telestrations for some higher-level thought games that won’t get boring.

Learn a New Instrument

Have a dusty old guitar you said you’d learn to play but never did? Still, have that sax from your parents’ high school days? Maybe there’s some DJ software on your computer? If not, you can still shop online for instruments! This is a great time to set aside just a half-hour of practice a day and watch as the skill sets grow and expand your minds.

Start a Gratitude Journal

Something that has been said again and again is that a practice of gratitude, especially in trying times, can lead to a happier and calmer day-to-day life. Start every day, or end every day, by writing 3 things you’re grateful for, and then write about how you’re feeling. Learning how to deal with emotions through writing can make things much clearer and easier to manage.

 

Wise Picks

Three of Seven Books Introducing Characters

With Dyslexia or ADHD

MyNameIsBrian-f

“My Name Is Brain Brian,”

by Jeanne Betancourt.

The book tells a story about a boy named Brian who has dyslexia but does not know it. The other children at Brian’s school make fun of him because he makes many mistakes when reading aloud and while writing on the board. He thinks of himself as being dumb. His parents believe that he is just lazy. It turns out that caring teacher recognizes that he is neither. The teacher recognizes the symptoms of dyslexia and sets out to get Brian the help he needs. Brian is embarrassed that he needs the extra help in school. After Brian’s teacher begins to explain dyslexia more to him, he begins to understand that he needs the extra help not because he is dumb, but because his brain learns differently. The story offers hope; Brian is really smart he just learns differently. I strongly recommend this as a book to be shared by parents and their children

“Clementine,”

Clematinef

by Sara Pennypacker.

Clementine is lovingly quirky. For example, she states that the most beautiful names are on the labels on things in the bathroom; thus, naming her cats Fluoride, Mascara, and Laxative! There are many examples of such cleverness throughout the story. Examples include describing her Mom, who is angry, as “saying things I have never heard a TV mother say”; claiming that all the good food is round; or, stating her grown-up plans to smoke cigars, own a gorilla, and to not get married. Clearly her Dad and Mom are partly responsible for this quirkiness. Her Mom is an artist and her Dad, who is the manager of the apartment complex where they live, demonstrates his own ingenuity and imagination around the Great Pigeon Wars – in which Clementine plays a key role in bringing the peace.

Threaded throughout the story is the theme of friendship – – that is, how to deal with friendship issues, how to be a good friend, and how to accept our friends for who they are. While there are plenty of examples of funny moments in the book, this really is a story about friendship. Clementine demonstrated typical 8-year-old feelings and thoughts around friendship issues: wanting to help a friend, feelings of jealousy, being angry with a friend, and finally making amends with a friend. I thought the author did a great job of developing a hugely likeable main character in Clementine (I dare you not to fall in love with her) and providing an entertaining story about the ups and downs of friendship.

“Playing Tyler,”

Playing Tyler

by T.L. Costa

When is a game not a game?

Tyler MacCandless can’t focus, even when he takes his medication. He can’t focus on school, on his future, on a book, on much of anything other than taking care of his older brother, Brandon, who’s in rehab for heroin abuse… again.

Tyler’s dad is dead and his mom has mentally checked out. The only person he can really count on is his Civilian Air Patrol Mentor, Rick. The one thing in life it seems he doesn’t suck at is playing video games and, well, thats probably not going to get him into college.

Just when it seems like his future is on a collision course with a life sentence at McDonald’s, Rick asks him to test a video game. If his score’s high enough, it could earn him a place in flight school and win him the future he was certain that he could never have. And when he falls in love with the game’s designer, the legendary gamer Ani, Tyler thinks his life might finally be turning around.

That is, until Brandon goes MIA from rehab and Tyler and Ani discover that the game is more than it seems. Now Tyler will have to figure out what’s really going on in time to save his brother… and prevent his own future from going down in flames.

book-of-the-month

Judas Kiss:

Murphy’s Law, Book Two

Judas Kiss

by K.A. Fox (Author)

Delaney Murphy is learning what it really means to be the daughter of the Devil and that not everyone appreciates her father’s kinder, gentler side. When tragedy strikes and upsets the fragile balancing act of her life, Delaney will have to choose between the world she’s sworn to protect and the father who has changed the whole of Hell just for her.
As betrayals around her mount, she begins to question herself and those closest to her.

Cut off from her magic, Laney’s tie to humanity is fraying. She’s slipping closer and closer to giving in to the overwhelming darkness growing inside her.

Ultimately, she’ll have to confront her demons or risk losing herself entirely.

This was a great story to read. This is book number two in this series written by a new author for me to read.

Wish I had read book one however, I still really enjoyed the story, the characters and the plot, really kept me reading until it was finished. It was really well written, and I cannot wait to see what this author will write about next. I highly recommend this story to everyone who loves reading about magic and fantasy.

I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley and am voluntarily leaving a review

Writing prompts are a wonderful way to kick-start your creativity and generate ideas. There isn’t a right or wrong way to respond, just be honest, be creative and use your imagination!

Write, be creative and most of all HAVE FUN!


It seems that since our March newsletter so much has changed in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re all living with fear and uncertainty and our hearts go out to all of you, especially if you have been personally affected by this horrible illness.
Often when I face something scary I find a way to use it to inspire creativity. This month’s writing prompt hopefully will do the same for you.
Your mission should you choose to accept it…

Make COVID-19 a villain in a story, give him/her/it a form, big and scary or inconspicuously prowling the streets among us. Use your imagination! What I do ask is that you end the story with the villain being defeated! I do want you to describe the superhero in this story, how did they come to be, how, when, where and what was the weapon used to stop COVID in its place…


Writing Prompt~A picture is worth a thousand words…

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.” ~ George R.R. Martin

What is the last book you read? Write about what happens when you switch places with the protagonist (the main character). How would you navigate the story you just read? Would you follow the same path? What would you do differently? How would the story end with you as the main character?

Book and tea

Get creative, write and most of all, have fun! 🙂
