A caregiving day keeps you running. A caregiving day also keeps you feeling. In our book of poems, 15 family caregivers write what about what they experience in their moments. Our poets care for parents, spouses and children. A few share a viewpoint from a place of life after caregiving has ended. We all want to make the most of the moments we have in each day. A Caregiving Day is also a way for us to help. We'll use the proceeds from our book sales to fund our CareGifters program operated through The Center for Family Caregivers, our non-profit organization. As often as we can, we send $500 to help a family caregiver in need. Because, when you ask for help, we want to be there for you. We're here to make your caregiving and after caregiving days easier.
Illustrated by Erwin Printup A Native American Good Morning Message For as long as anyone can remember, Mohawk parents have taught their children to start each day by giving thanks to Mother Earth.

The First Thanksgiving is a story involving Lester's sixth-grade class project. The project is for each student to write from a Pilgrim's point of view, a report on what it would be like to live in a new land in the wilderness of America in the year 1621. Lester has a dream about the report. In his dream, Lester sees himself as a 12-year-old Pilgrim boy named Isaac, who meets an Indian boy his own age in the colony. His name is Squanto. In order to learn about each other's culture, they agree to live together with Squanto's tribe. After a period of time, Squanto agrees to live with Isaac in the English colony. During the exchange, a wealth of information is discovered about the two boys' different lifestyles. The boys learn about the difference between each other's religious beliefs, culture, and what it is like from the other person's point of view. Both boys soon discover differences between the two races of people. Lester writes his report about his dream experience as Isaac, and about his Indian friend, Squanto. This paper wins a state award for the school and his sixth-grade class. Lester is awarded a college scholarship for his outstanding scholarly work.

INTRODUCTION to SERIES: A long time ago, before television, forests grew all around a neighborhood near the edge of the great forbidden Cypress Swamp. The people in the neighborhood all shared their lives, beliefs, and superstitions, creating an atmosphere of adventure throughout the neighborhood. In the neighborhood lived five young boys. There was an old mulberry tree that stood on the outskirts of town. Over the years, someone had built a tree house in the fork of two large limbs that spread out over the cemetery. The tree house, called the Fort, was built large enough for the boys to use as their clubhouse. Inside the tree Fort, the boys had a panoramic view of the surrounding area. Looking out the north window, the boys could see a large meadow stretching out into the distance. Through the east window, they could see far away the top of a bald cypress tree. Everyone knew that meant there was a dangerous swamp nearby. In this series of stories, some strange and incredible things happen in the area to challenge the boys' ingenuity. Utilizing their imagination and skills, the boys successfully solve one problem after another. What is real, and how much is in their imagination?
