READING: In this compelling volume, distinguished educators tackle a frequently asked question about multicultural education: How do I teach about racial and cultural diversity if all my students are white? The authors propose seven learning themes to help young white children resist messages of racism and build identity and skills for thriving in a multicultural country and world. The text includes strategies, resources, and classroom examples for implementing the learning themes in early childhood settings. Taking multicultural education to a new level, this practical guide places the development of white children's racial identity in the context of the historical construction of "whiteness" and racism in America, and suggests strategies for nurturing a new white identity as the starting place for anti-bias/multicultural work with children. It includes activities for families and staff, reflection questions, a review of white anti-racism activists, lists of suggested children's books, and organizational and website resources.

READING: What if a simple hike across the German countryside turned out to be the greatest adventure of your lifetime? What if you had a chance to share that adventure with some of the greatest entertainers of the 1970's? What if heroes never really die, but reborn? For Terry Jurgans the adventure has just begun and the secrets he uncovers will change his life forever. What if there was a secret war about to happen and the only way the world can be saved is by an unlikely group of heroes that the world believes to be dead, and the world can never know is alive. The Third Reich is about to rise and Maximillion Nash will stop at nothing to see that happen. It's going to take the combined might of John Wayne, Bruce Lee, Elvis Presley, and James Dean to stop Max and his henchmen. This time there is no lights, cameras or special effects, it's for real and the director won't yell cut. What if the Government knew way more about the mysteries of life than we ever could have thought, would we really want to know what really goes on outside the safety of our own ignorance? What if death was no longer a factor in how we perceived life?

READING: Thought experimentation has been a staple of philosophical methodology since classical antiquity, when Xenophanes of Colophon speculated that if horses had gods, they would be equine in form. Nicholas Rescher's What If? undertakes a systematic survey of the role and utility of thought experiments in philosophy. After surveying the historical issues, Rescher examines the principles involved, and explains the conditions under which thought experimentation can validly yield instructive results in philosophy. The reader gains understanding of the differences between scientific and philosophical experiments. What If? begins by examining the nature of thought experiments. It presents an overview of how thought experiments have figured in natural science and in historical studies, before moving on to examine how they function as an instrument of philosophical inquiry. After examining thought experiments from the pre-Socratics to the present day, Rescher turns from history to analysis, and examines the modes of reasoning involved in the use of speculative hypotheses in philosophical problem solving. He shows the limitations of speculative ontology, showing that thought experimentation can lead readily to paradox in a way that increasingly diminishes its usefulness. The book concludes by arguing and illustrating how and when it becomes pointless to push speculation, or thought experimentation beyond the limits of intelligibility and cogent sense. Among the principal features of Rescher's book is its elaborate analysis of the appropriate conditions for philosophical thought experimentation. Its cardinal thesis is that there indeed are limits to the appropriateness of this important methodological resource and that transgressing these limits destroys the prospect of drawing any valid lessons for the philosophical enterprise. What If? will be of interest to philosophers, students of philosophy, and theorists of logic and reasoning. Nicholas Rescher is University Professor of Philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh. He is the author of numerous philosophical works and holds six honorary degrees from universities on three continents. He has served as a president of the American Philosophical Association, the American Metaphilosophical Society, and the American Catholic Philosophical Association.

READING: What if you had an awakening? What if you had the experience through channeling to speak to your higher self? Or perhaps a higher entity? Brad Wallis has had such an experience. Through a car accident that caused brain injury or perhaps we should say, an awakening to his higher soul and raising of his frequency, he finally became aware of communications that had been happening his whole life. Through the use of a “channel” and through extraordinary conversations, Brad began to ask some questions that he had always thought of, and he got answers. This book has some of those questions and some of those conversations. What if you could ask and get answers to your innermost questions? Let’s begin and see how it was done. These conversations will show you that you can ask the question, “What if?”

READING: Every month, millions of people enter the term ‘what if’ on Google and other online search engines. What do they expect to find? The answer is something like the information you’ll find in this collection of trivia, witticisms, and plain old useful information. Author Knut Olsen addresses questions like these: What if Adam had been gay? What if nobody drank alcohol? What if you could call God? A: The phone operator would probably charge you a fortune. What if you put all the condoms in the world on top of each other? What if you fired a gun on a train moving as fast as a bullet? What if we knew how much Governments around the world waste of taxpayers’ money? You’ll discover the answers to these and more than one thousand other “what if” questions on a wide range of topics, including family, religion, music, sex, politics and much more. As you read the questions and answers, you’ll think, laugh, and often be surprised. We are surrounded by what-ifs, and some of them are so serious that you might not be prepared to consider them. While some are unthinkable or unrealistic, many are fun. Either way, sit back and enjoy the ride!

Beth Ferrara has created charming illustrations of cats, dogs, whales, and skunks that, when combined with poetic thought-provoking questions, will help build the foundation of caring and understanding of others.

What if bees grew on trees Instead of leaves? By showing children what it’s like to walk in someone else’s shoes, they will view things from a different perspective, enabling them to explore a broader range of feelings. What If? is a colorful, rhyming book for children of all ages, a wonderful addition to any classroom or home library.

READING: What if you awoke tomorrow with amnesia—no memory of who you are, what you like and dislike, and so on. Would you be the same person? What if, as in the movie The Matrix, you discovered that everything was a simulation and you were just a programmed component? What if everything you believed was false? Who would you be then? Eldon Taylor has been researching the power of the mind for more than 25 years. He has repeatedly demonstrated the overt attempts that have been made to control your thinking. While very interesting in theory, most of us do not understand this on a personal level. It is easy to understand the concept of Mind Programming when it is occurring with someone else, but most would deny that they too are victims. What If? is a very personal book. By using everyday situations and guiding you through numerous thought experiments, Eldon does an excellent job of peeling back the layers and revealing the dissonance in much of your thinking, beliefs, desires, and choices—contradictory beliefs held at the same time with no apparent awareness. Once you have seen your own mind with the filtered lenses removed, it is impossible to remain the same. That is why so many have praised this work as being absolutely life-changing—not just a fascinating read—but a transformational experience!

READING: Blumetti has used his extensive knowledge of history to explore alternative histories. He has not stretched the imagination, but rather tried to explode alternative outcomes that actually could have happened. In 1769 Napoleon's parents almost fled Corsica to the American colonies, by way of England, but decided to remain on their island. But what would have happened if they had settled in New York, just a few months before Napoleon was born? Blumetti also explores what might have happened if the Germans had attacked Moscow, instead of Stalingrad, in 1942, or what if the Japanese had entered the Second World War in 1940, instead of 1941. What if the Allies, in World War One, were victorious in 1916, or if Bismarck had united Germany and Austria in 1866? These and other counter factorial histories are explored in What If?: Alternative Historical Time Lines.
