Disney was best noted as being the man who instilled the Happily Ever After into all little girls minds while growing up. Not only did he lie, but totally confused the heck out of Mia. When Mia met Ross, she thought nothing of his future lawyer title or the pink shirt he so proudly wore. A future lawyer was something she wasnt interested in, but his numerous attempts for her attention were adding up. A 48-hour date later and a few years in the bag, brought marriage, a home and happiness. As Mia presents her skewed version of Disneys Happily Ever After she also shares the truth behind her true Prince Charming and how regardless of ones faith, people will do anything even if living in a glass house. Not afraid to voice her opinion or the honest truth, Mia points out that true love is not dating her husband, nor committing adultery with him while her ring is still on her finger.
An old man's kingdom is the town dump; his palace, an abandoned railroad carriage at the edge of it. But the Paper Bag Prince (he earned his title by foraging in the litter for bags and other useful objects) is content with his lot, and with his subjects--the stray animals who also call the dump home. One day he's informed that the dump has been closed and he can live there in peace and at one with nature. There's more happiness in store for him, too, when he finally wins his "Princess," a shy dog he coaxes out from the shadows and into his home.
This book explores key policy issues related to early childhood education. Through the contributions of various professionals in the field, the editors provide a vision, practical and possible, of early childhood education in the 1990s. Part I delves into the complex world, both personal and professional, of the classroom teacher. The essays in Part II look at issues of the school community, including the roles of class, race, gender, and exceptionality. Finally, Part III examines the relationship between schools and the community-at-large, and how complex issues find their way into social and economic policies that often stifle, rather than support, the democratic vision of American schools. Taken as a whole, the volume presents a stimulating discussion of the current state of early childhood education policy and practice.
