Født Klog. En bog, som gør os alle klogere på børn Alle børn er født kloge. Vi gør som forældre alt, hvad der står i vores magt, for at tilfredsstille det lille væsens behov, og alligevel glemmer mange at lytte til og tale med barnet. Børn forstår, hvad vi siger og mærker, hvordan vi har det – helt fra fødslen. Det er derfor vigtigt at lytte til barnets udtryk, tale med barnet og bruge hele vores sanseapparat for at forstå barnets ønsker og behov. Hvis børn og forældre forstår hinanden bedre, vil de sammen kunne skabe noget helt enestående – et herligt liv for både barnet og forældrene, mener forfatteren til Født klog, sundhedsplejerske Lena Dyhrberg. I den ånd er bogen Født klog blevet til – i ønsket om at give forældre en god forståelse af deres unikke barn. Som sundhedsplejerske gennem mange år er Lena Dyhrberg blevet bekræftet i det spæde barns klogskab: Det nyfødte barn forstår, hvad du siger. Hvis du taler til barnet, så bringer du bare en meddelelse. Hvis du taler med barnet, så kigger du på dit barn, får kontakt og vil kunne se, du får et svar. Svaret kan være, at barnet ændrer mimik. Måske pludrer barnet eller er helt stille.
Det kan også være, at dit barn spræller med hele kroppen og viser dig, at nu skal I have det sjovt. Derfor ændrer barnet kropssprog. Dette og meget andet handler Født klog om – i håbet om, at forældrerollen kan blive lettere at håndtere, når den voksne lytter og taler med barnet.
In the history of the movies, thousands of men, women, children, and even animals have tried to find success as a movie star. They were drawn from theater, opera, sports, and every type of entertainment venue, and some even came from out of nowhere. They took valiant stabs at entrancing audiences with their faces, personalities, or peculiarities. A precious few achieved greater popularity than anyone could have ever dreamed, but others vanished beneath the sands of time along with the films they so lovingly made. They gave us their most audacious efforts, but they did not find any lasting success, or having enjoyed a brief blush with triumph, they returned home to their true metiers. Some simply never found a second chance. This book celebrates the memorable attempts of ten who tried to be a movie star.

Experience the finale to the bestselling Amazon quadrilogy Bryn is awake and the clock is ticking.
Her dreams have ignited cracks in the universe wide enough for things to slip through--nightmares--and the only way to keep the world from ripping apart at the seams is to find the other Dreamers and wake them too. But Bryn's death has awakened something else--a dark desire in her to give in to the madness that led to the First Dreamer's demise. Roman knows what it's like to give in to the darkness. But even as visions of his mother continue to follow him from ravaged city to ravaged city, her ghost appearing in smoke and broken glass with a silent message he can't quite decipher, he refuses to be the one who needs saving. Instead, it's Bryn who needs a miracle and Roman is determined to find it if it's the last thing he does.
When he died he feared he had been forgotten... …He was dead wrong! Bela Lugosi is considered one of the greatest actors of the twentieth-century... but you'd never know it based upon the way he was treated by the Hollywood executives he worked for. Shut out, ignored, and hideously underpaid, he could have easily given up, walked away from show business, and no one would have blamed him for doing so.
But he didn't. Now a body of his work exists that is celebrated decades after his death... because he worked hard and never gave up. Bela Lugosi persevered in the face of tremendous adversity. Can Bela's story inspire you to keep going in your quest to make the world a better place? In Reign of the Vampire: A Tribute to the Perseverance of Bela Lugosi, Leo Wiltshire (M.
A. in Organizational Leadership) examines the struggles and triumphs of Lugosi's life in order to flesh out one of the most inspirational tales of determination ever told.
