              How should teachers and parents react when a child consistently does not speak in certain situations when speech is expected, for example in kindergarten or school? In this book, the author has tried to reach an understanding of selective mutism. Her approach has been twofold: Fi...rstly, she has observed everyday interactions between children with selective mutism and other children and adults in kindergartens, schools, and homes. Secondly, she has interviewed formerly selectively mute adults, selectively mute children themselves, and their parents and teachers. What seemed to be the meaning of silence from the childs own perspective and from the perspectives of other children and adults? How did teachers succeed in encouraging communication and including selectively mute children? And what characterised interactions that did not help children to begin to speak and participate in kindergarten and school? The intended audience of this book is teachers in kindergartens and schools, professionals in the helping services, researchers, students, and parents.

              Once upon a summer... When Holly and Drew's parents go to Ireland for the summer, they get sent to their grandparents' cottage in West Virginia. Grandpa has warned them - that they need to stay within certain boundaries while exploring the area. Children often fail to observe suc...h warnings. One day, while investigating the creek by the cottage, the children happen upon a gnome named Bracken. The gnome leads Holly and Drew on a merry chase, but they eventually become friends. Bracken tells them about his home; a magical realm, accessed through a portal in the crystal cave. Holly and Drew's grandparents (Elmer and Lottie O'Day) are the observers of this portal. One day a gleaner, the evil servant of the druid (Dareg), wandered out of the portal and attacked Elmer and Lottie. The gleaner put a spell on them, casting them into a deep enchanted sleep. No one could awaken them. Bracken followed the gleaner back to his home realm (Upper-Earth). Once there, Bracken must discover what the gleaner is up to, so that he can restore Elmer and Lottie. Drew follows Bracken through the crystal henge, where he finds himself in a strange realm filled with fairytale creatures and danger. The adventure is on... Drew is nearly drowned by a watershee, survives a dragon attack in the gnome cave and discovers some important magical artifacts. Meanwhile, Dareg has released many of the dragons from their island sanctuary, and is transporting them to Middle-Earth. He plans to use the dragons to help him conquer mankind. Can Bracken and Drew stop him?

              Religious experiences have become increasingly relevant to contemporary understandings of modern multi-cultural European communities, including those in Norway. In the USA, multi-cultural and multi-religious experiences have been part of the social fabric for centuries and have o...ften been reflected in American literature. In this book issues pertaining to religion and identity have been explored through a reader-response study of female Norwegian students of American literature. The books deal with religious experiences in four world religions: Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Hinduism. The students come from majority-culture and minority- culture backgrounds and represent various religious and secular world views. In addition to the reader-response study the book also discusses the function of literature in a didactic and religious context, and questions its role as a means to stage dialogues between different religious and ethnic groups in Norway.
