A week of books…

This week is a week of books.  During the rest of the week I will review four very different books that have been sitting on my desk over the past few months.

I’m starting the week off Tuesday with Hope…Joy and a Few Little Thoughts for Pregnant Teens by Rachel Brignoni.  This is a book written to help pregnant teenagers take charge of their lives and move forward in their new role as mothers.

On Wednesday I’m going to review Heather Corinna’s book S.E.X.: The all-you-need-to-know progressive sexuality guide to get you through high school and college.  The title (or rather the very long subtitle) really says all the introduction you need here.

On Thursday I’ll review What Every 21st Century Parent Needs to Know: Facing Today’s Challenges with Wisdom and Heart by Rev. Debra W. Haffner.  Rev. Haffner is, among other qualifications, a UU minister and the author of one of my favorite blogs.  I’m looking forward to introducing you to her most recent parenting book.

On Friday I’m going to review the classic The Body Project by Joan Jacobs Brumberg.  This book is, indeed, a classic and ranks right up there with the Ophelia Project and The Women’s Room in terms of great feminist books to read.  But what does it have to say to parents?  Well, that’s what I’m going to tell you about.
