The Nun and the Gardener is a collection of short stories and essays, some humorous and some serious. Many of LaVerne’s short stories and essays start with a bit of truth, such as an experience in her life, and then go from there - sometimes into fantasyland. She likes to take that grain of truth and stretch it just a tad by using her very active imagination. She tries to find humor in every situation, and especially in her life. When that doesn’t work, she writes serious stories and essays, but her imagination is still very much involved.

As his paintings magnificently attest, Claude Monet was enamored of flowers and gardens. Yet his interest went beyond the canvas. The beloved painter was also a passionate gardener, well versed in plant life and amply informed on the latest horticultural developments. Once he had achieved success and renown as a painter, he was able to devote himself to creating Giverny, one of the most beautiful and inventive gardens in all of France. Now readers can enjoy the fruits of Monet's labors at Giverny and learn how they came to be. In this richly illustrated and revelatory volume, rare photographs are juxtaposed with reproductions of the artist's paintings demonstrating his masterful application of color and design both on the canvas and in the garden. Gardening expert Sydney Eddison and eminent Monet scholar Robert Gordon explore the relationship between gardening and art, offer insight on Monet's interest in plants, and examine the idea of artist as gardener, gardener as artist. Gordon discusses the artist's obsession with gardens and describes how Giverny evolved over time. In delightful anecdotes about the artist, his family, and his associates, he permits a privileged glimpse of everyday life in the Monet household.

One of the world's leading child psychologists shatters the myth of "good parenting" Caring deeply about our children is part of what makes us human. Yet the thing we call "parenting" is a surprisingly new invention. In the past thirty years, the concept of parenting and the multibillion dollar industry surrounding it have transformed child care into obsessive, controlling, and goal-oriented labor intended to create a particular kind of child and therefore a particular kind of adult. In The Gardener and the Carpenter, the pioneering developmental psychologist and philosopher Alison Gopnik argues that the familiar twenty-first-century picture of parents and children is profoundly wrong--it's not just based on bad science, it's bad for kids and parents, too. Drawing on the study of human evolution and her own cutting-edge scientific research into how children learn, Gopnik shows that although caring for children is profoundly important, it is not a matter of shaping them to turn out a particular way. Children are designed to be messy and unpredictable, playful and imaginative, and to be very different both from their parents and from each other. The variability and flexibility of childhood lets them innovate, create, and survive in an unpredictable world. “Parenting" won't make children learn—but caring parents let children learn by creating a secure, loving environment.
