Thank you for sharing this great book list. This is some serious reading! I like the way you included the former reading material posted by Ken.

Sally, you have been doing a great job as new editor. If parents want to send you thier stories for posting can they find your email address anywhere? You might want to get a new one just for this purpose, one that people can rmember easily. Something like sallyatpsst or sallyispsst at gmail or yahoo! I have already received questions from other parents about how they can share thier story just because they are following the Sally, Rocco and Cisco story. I know of at least one parent who will probably ask you for your email at our next meeting.

Parents Who Have a Story to Tell can send their stories to sallyservives@gmail.com
I know I would like to hear from other parents and get their point-of-view.
