Updated for 2016! How to Make & Keep Friends: Tips for Kids to Overcome 50 Common Social Challenges By Nadine Briggs and Donna Shea offers social skills and friendship advice presented in a reference guide format, using lists to easily find tips and strategies on a specific topic or social situation. This is a resource for those children who benefit most from direct instruction or learn more effectively using factual materials rather than fictional stories. While the reading grade level and content is geared toward elementary school kids, many teens and adults report they are finding these tips on the basics to be helpful. Included are simple and immediately actionable tips to navigate common social situations that can be challenging, such as: • How to Join a Group • How to Safely Handle Angry Feelings • Handling Rejection and Exclusion • Working Things Out & Sharing Fairly • Being a Good Guest and Host • Playground Success • … and much more! In this updated edition, we have taken the feedback from our reviews and readers and added the "why" of learning each of these skills is important along with practice questions to inspire discussion and role playing of different social situations with children.

Cassandra's review- There is so much to help your child in the series, but I did not agree with all of it.  I man as a parent you need to review and choose what you really think is the best methods for your children, because only you know there skill set and needs.   So many people have different views so you can really just pick through and share this series with other families or church groups etc.    This is also a good set for homeschool children as they do not socialize as much especially in the colder months.   There are good life lessons for any age even adults.

The Truth Won't Help Them Now by Joan Hunter, Steven Cobos Review

It is 1939 when the bullet-riddled body of an accounting clerk from a gambling ship washes up under the Santa Monica pier. As city homicide detectives tenaciously chase down their only clue-a fast, expensive, and very exclusive Bugatti-their investigation leads them into a tangle of competing gangsters all looking to muscle their way to a bigger share of illegal gambling.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles County deputy district attorney Cliff Thoms is leading a special squad searching for a pair of serial killers who have already killed four young women and are on the hunt for more. Thoms, with the help of a self-proclaimed psychic he doesn't quite trust, risks lives and careers in a desperate gamble to catch his elusive quarry. As the two investigations collide and rush to a deadly conclusion, dirty cops, DAs on the take, mobsters, grieving families, and reformer politicians must attempt to distinguish lies from the truth. Unfortunately, they are all about to discover that even the truth won't help them now.

In this fast-paced tale of murder and gangland intrigue, a gritty district attorney and a band of detectives set out on a quest to solve two separate crimes amid a corrupted 1939 Los Angeles.

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- written with a good speed as far as reading with a pace.  It has all the elements of a super good mystery as well as some historical add ins.   When I noticed the year of the setting, I was not super interested but this book carries well and was really good to spend time with.
