RHINO WHO SWALLOWED A STORM

RHINO WHO SWALLOWED A STORM
$17.95

When little Mica Mouse is scared by thunder booming outside her cozy home, Papa Mouse reaches for just the right story to comfort her. Hugging her close, he begins to read The Rhino Who Swallowed a Storm. In this poetic book-within-a-book, a happy little rhinoceros is overwhelmed by a storm that sweeps away everything he loves. Swallowing the storm just makes him feel worse, so Rhino sets off on a whimsical journey toward healing. Along the way, he meets many friends, including a kind spider, a brave kangaroo, a wise tortoise, and an uplifting whale. With their help, Rhino lets go of the storm inside and learns to see the light in a world turned gray. Mica Mouse is soothed by the story and Papa’s gentle reminder that even though bad things sometimes happen, the world is full of people who care.

In his first children’s book, longtime Reading Rainbow host LeVar Burton gives us an engaging resource to help children express their feelings and navigate through difficult experiences. The “Take a Deeper Look” page at the end of the book even provides discussion questions to facilitate a healing dialogue.

STEELERS - 50TH ANNIVERSARY COMMEMORATIVE BOOK

STEELERS - 50TH ANNIVERSARY COMMEMORATIVE BOOK
$9.95

Saint Vincent College has announced publication of a book, Pittsburgh Steelers Training Camp: 50 Years at Saint Vincent, in conjunction with the observance of the 50th annual summer training camp.

 

Authored by retired sports writer Mike Dudurich and illustrated with dozens of historic photographs from the files of Latrobe photographer Bill Amatucci as well as the Steelers archives, the 40-page, full-color, copyrighted publication was designed by George Fetkovich of the Saint Vincent College Marketing and Communications staff.

 

A welcome message by Archabbot Douglas R. Nowicki, O.S.B. notes that the year 2015 marks the 50th summer Saint Vincent has welcomed the Pittsburgh Steelers and thousands of their fans to campus. “A lot of memories and images come to mind when you think about those 50 years,” Nowicki commented. “Great players, great plays, six Super Bowl victories, seeing old friends, making new friends. My favorite image of training camp is that of the fans surrounding the practice fields on all sides. I hope the spirit of hospitality will always be a hallmark of Saint Vincent since that welcoming spirit is rooted in a central teaching of Saint Benedict in his Rule written for monks in the sixth century.”

 

The book is divided into four chapters based on the team’s head coaches during that period: The Bill Austin Era, 1966-1968, The Beginning; The Chuck Noll Era, 1969-1991, The Glory Years; The Bill Cowher Era, 1992-2006, A Renewed Fire; and The Mike Tomlin Era, 2007 to present, Growing Together.

 

 

Forty-four photos provide a photographic overview of the coaches and players during the past 50 years.

THE GOOD NEIGHBOR: THE LIFE & WORK OF FRED ROGERS

product image
$30.00
New York Times bestseller
2018 Goodreads Choice Award Winner for History & Biography


Fred Rogers (1928-2003) was an enormously influential figure in the history of television and in the lives of tens of millions of children. As the creator and star of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, he was a champion of compassion, equality, and kindness. Rogers was fiercely devoted to children and to taking their fears, concerns, and questions about the world seriously.

The Good Neighbor, the first full-length biography of Fred Rogers, tells the story of this utterly unique and enduring American icon. Drawing on original interviews, oral histories, and archival documents, Maxwell King traces Rogers's personal, professional, and artistic life through decades of work, including a surprising decision to walk away from the show to make television for adults, only to return to the neighborhood with increasingly sophisticated episodes, written in collaboration with experts on childhood development. An engaging story, rich in detail, The Good Neighbor is the definitive portrait of a beloved figure, cherished by multiple generations.

THE IDEA OF THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY

THE IDEA OF THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY
$60.00
As John Henry Newman reflected on 'The Idea of a University' more than a century and a half ago, Bradley C. S. Watson brings together some of the nation's most eminent thinkers on higher education to reflect on the nature and purposes of the American university today. They detail the life and rather sad times of the American university, its relationship to democracy, and the place of the liberal arts within it. Their mordant reflections paint a picture of the American university in crisis. But they also point toward a renewal of the university by redirecting it toward those things that resist the passions of the moment, or the pull of mere utility. This book is essential reading for thoughtful citizens, scholars, and educational policymakers.
