Viktor Frankl: A Life Worth Living

Viktor_Frankl_Life_Worth_Living.jpgby Anna Redsand
Viktor Frankl has a message for today’s teens: their life has meaning! They know he’s credible when they learn about his survival of Nazi concentration camps and his choice to say “Yes” to life in spite of everything.

This compelling biography, written for adolescents, traces Viktor Frankl’s life, the rise of the Nazi power, life and survival in the concentration camps, and logotherapy—Frankl’s belief that man’s deepest need is his search for purpose and meaning.

Frankl’s beliefs of salvation through love and personal responsibility, and his opposition to revenge bring a welcome message of hope to our questioning youth.

Who Was Albert Einstein?

insert image in small size linked to itself by Jess Brallier. Illustrated by Robert Andrew Parker
We know his name, his hair do, and that he's a genius, but who IS he really? Readers grades 8-11 (my parents enjoyed them too) learn about his trials at school, his German Jewish heritage during the Nazi years, his family challenges, and a kid-friendly rendition of his Nobel Prize winning discoveries. Full of freaky facts like the whereabouts of his brain, that he wasn't a great dad (self-acknowledged), hard work amazingly pays off... Girls and boys love it.
