Nutrition Plan for
Sound Bodies and Strong Minds
with Barbara Alpert
Dr. Sanders-Butler was a new principal
when she became convinced that the disciplinary problems, tardiness, and inattention plaguing her student body were
related to poor nutrition. She launched
the Achieving Academic Excellence
Through Nutrition program, which
banned refined sugars and high-fat and
processed foods and drink from the cafeteria. The results were immediate.

Cons Parents and Hurts Kids

ARE YOU HAPPY?
A Childhood Remembered
EMILY FOX GORDON
An evocation of a peculiar and paradoxical kind of happiness—the happiness
of an unhappy child. Gordon was a
fatty, an academic failure, a schoolyard
pariah, a disappointment to her highly
educated parents. And yet her early life
was, as she puts it, “a succession of
moments of radiant apprehension.” “A
mordantly witty writer.”—Booklist.

THE SOULS OF BLACK FOLK
Introduction and Notes
by Donald B. Gibson
Du Bois’s 1903 collection of essays is a
thoughtful, articulate exploration of the
moral and intellectual issues surrounding the perception of blacks within
American society. “Sentimental, poetical, picturesque, the acquired logic of the
evident attempt to be critically fair-minded is strangely tangled with these
racial characteristics and racial rhetoric.”
—The New York Times Book Review.
