SUNDAY HOMILIES: YEAR C BY FR. DEMETRIUS DUMM, O.S.B. & FR. CAMPION GAVALER, O.S.B.
$12.95
Sunday homily reflections of Father Demetrius Dumm, O.S.B., and Father Campion Gavaler, O.S.B., are a collection of scholarly insights on the gospel that contain a beautiful simplicity. They are more than academic exercises. They are the result of both priests being immersed in monastic contemplation. Their commentaries go directly to the essence of the gospel message without useless details and distinctions that distract from its spirit. Their down-to-earth applications of the gospel to daily living also reveal that their profound understanding of it cannot but be the result of the powers of contemplation for comprehending the essence of life. -- Rev. Eugene Hemrick, National Institute for the Renewal of the Priesthood.

THE GOOD NEIGHBOR: THE LIFE & WORK OF FRED ROGERS

THE GOOD NEIGHBOR: THE LIFE & WORK OF FRED ROGERS
$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.

THE WORLD OF MISTER ROGERS' NEIGHBORHOOD

THE WORLD OF MISTER ROGERS' NEIGHBORHOOD
$72.95

Unlike many children's television shows, Mister Rogers' Neighborhood did more than simply entertain or occupy children's attention. The show educated them in the affective domain, encouraging such things as appreciation for difference, collaboration, self-expression, and self-worth. It also introduced them to the areas of culture, art, and music through guests, trips, art objects and processes, and demonstrations, making it accessible and meaningful in a way that a child could understand. While the educational content of children's television programming has improved greatly since the late 1960s, no other children's program has ever attempted such a mix of high art, low art, folk art, industrial production, learning in the affective and social domains, and more, all with a whimsical sense of humor, insight, and a level of interconnected detail unmatched by any other children's television program. This book illuminates and examines the world of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood through world design, narrative, genre, form, content, authorship, reception and more.

WHEN YOU WONDER, YOU'RE LEARNING: MISTER ROGERS' ENDURING LESSONS FOR RAISING CREATIVE, CURIOUS, CARING KIDS
$28.00
Bringing the lessons of Mister Rogers into the digital age

Playful and practical, When You Wonder, You're Learning introduces a new generation of families to the lessons of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. By exploring the science behind the iconic television program, the book reveals what Fred Rogers called the "tools for learning" skills and mindsets that scientists now consider essential. These tools--curiosity, creativity, collaboration, and more--have been shown to boost everything from academic learning to children's well-being, and they benefit kids of every background and age. They cost next to nothing to develop, and they hinge on the very things that make life worthwhile: self-acceptance; close, loving relationships; and a deep regard for one's neighbor.

When You Wonder, You're Learning shows parents and educators the many ways they might follow in Rogers' footsteps, sharing his "tools for learning" with digital-age kids. With insights from thinkers, scientists, and teachers--many of whom worked with Rogers himself--the book is an essential exploration into how kids and their parents can excel at what Rogers taught best: being human.
