Award-Winning Children's book — The Hero of Hawk's Nest Beach

The Hero of Hawk’s Nest Beach: A Sea Turtle Rescue
Written by Barbara Gervais Ciancimino; Illustrated by Diana Delosh; Edited by Lauren Magnussen

Finn, who considers himself to be a “regular every day” dog, and his best friend, Little Mutt, spend every summer together on Hawk’s Nest Beach, fetching driftwood and playing with the children. The last thing Finn expects is a life-and-death adventure beneath the waves.
After unexpectedly coming across a trapped sea turtle, Finn does what heroes do: he selflessly jumps into action to save the turtle’s life. Finn discovers that being ordinary doesn’t mean you’re unable to do extraordinary things. Many “regular everyday” heroes give of themselves to help others and save lives, no matter how “ordinary” they may think they are.

Raising Resilient Kids
Written by Rhonda Spencer-Hwang, DrPH, MPH, CWP

Dr. Rhonda Spencer-Hwang is a professor of public health at Loma Linda University, lives in a community known worldwide for its health and longevity. As an epidemiologist and mom of three, she decided to study the area’s many centenarians to find out what they—or their parents—did right in childhood to make them so resilient in the face of stress, disease, and the adversities of life.

In Raising Resilient Kids, Dr. Spencer-Hwang reveals the intriguing findings from her research and offers eight principles for raising happier, healthier children who are equipped to flourish despite life’s inevitable adversities. Given the centenarians had experienced a tremendous amount of hardships, including the 1918 Spanish flu and so much, they have wonderful advice for families today.
