Seniors’ Needs is written for Seniors, their Families and Caregivers, to illustrate the particularized needs of Seniors. The book contains helpful guidelines and information about the challenges Seniors face in their twilight years and offers some solutions to those challenges. The information was compiled due to numerous requests for such information by the Seniors for whom I have worked. Included in this book is information relating to aging, health, insurance choices, nursing home care and services, home health care and services, healthy foods, exercise and what to expect as we begin to rely more and more on others for care. Also included is information on the pitfalls Seniors face when navigating the “Aging Industry”, on their own or through family members. It also contains some humorous stories, some serious stories and personal accounts of the Seniors I had the pleasure to work with.

Kids will love this noise-filled Bright and Early Book classic from the one and only Dr. Seuss! Mr. Brown is a sound-making wonder! He can hoo hoo like an owl and buzz buzz like a bee.

Can You? will keep kids laughing (when they’re not tick-tocking). Combining brief and funny stories, easy words, catchy rhythm, and lively illustrations, Bright and Early Books are an ideal way to introduce the joys of reading to children.

In the first of Partee's funny books for women, the award winning Aging with Humor and Grace could be described as a combination of Erma Bombeck and Chicken Soup for the Soul. Written especially for women over 40, more than middle aged women have found this book to be a delightfully funny read about change. While she certainly talks about discovering new wrinkles and personally experiencing the law of gravity, there is more. Embarrassing moments abound whether she's falling off her high heels in front of her ex-husband's wife at a wedding, managing to ride a bicycle after a 50 year break or discovering her happy trail has split and grown in abundance south of its prior location. Her funny stories include how to conquer restless leg syndrome; the challenges of running, playing tennis and trampoline jumping after years of being a desk jockey with the closest thing to cardio being a daily walk to the mailbox. You will find this humorous book isn't just about aging but about life's cup always being at least half full, no matter what the challenge. Partee's entertaining anecdotes will make you laugh whether she's describing the application of eye makeup with glasses on or what to do with that extra chin. You'll find funny short stories about parenting, family and relat...
