The Smart Parent’s Guide gives you ways to play with your child that can harness their minds and their bodies – they’ll be learning without even realizing it. You'll also discover:

. The 4 key things to consider when buying toys

. The absolute “must-haves” for your child’s play room.

. How to match your child to the best toys to to suit their play and learning profile.

. The just-right “diet of play” and what that means for your child’s learning and development.

. How the games your child plays will affect the directions they take throughout the rest of their lives. What is your child learning from their toys?

Meet the Author: Jennifer Burge
Deception Bay Library, Thursday, May 28 at 10am
American born Jennifer’s dream was to work overseas, so she jumped at the chance to work in Germany, then Holland. A stranger in a land becoming increasingly hostile to Americans after the US decision to go to war in Iraq, she had to learn to adopt a new perspective and manage relationships with European colleagues. Despite remarkable odds, Jennifer leaned on her professional strength and a heavy dose of sarcasm to navigate this unknown territory.2011 brought her to Australia where she initially returned to consulting. In late 2012, she took the leap into writing full time. In 2013, she launched my web site, Jennifer’s JNANA, and became a full member of the Australian Society of Authors. 2014 saw the completion of her memoir, The Devil Wears Clogs, which was released by Satalyte Publishing on September 5, 2014. Currently, she's working on the second book in her memoir series, Singapore Salvation and taking copious notes about the wonders (and oddities!) of Australian life.

Meet the Author: Dave Morgan
Redcliffe Library, Friday, May 29 at 2:30pm
Meet Dave Morgan, Vietnam Vet, Antarctic researcher and author of My Vietnam War: scarred forever

Far from his carefree youth, the Vietnam War exposed Dave Morgan to an atmosphere of ever-present danger and sheer terror that would impact him forever. In My Vietnam War Dave combines letters he wrote as a soldier with his recollections and diary entries, and the short stories of seven other veterans, to capture the unbelievable danger and horror that these young men experienced.

My Vietnam War is Dave Morgan’s story. A typical 20 year old, he was forced into extraordinary circumstances in Vietnam. His return to a divided Australia would isolate him even further.
During his service Dave wrote home to his mother from Vietnam, tracking the days and the events. In 1992, after his mother passed away, he found all of his letters carefully numbered and in order. He has combined these letters with his own recollections and diary entries, and the short stories of seven other veterans, to capture the unbelievable danger and horror that these young men experienced in Vietnam.

Dave also describes how the experience in Vietnam established life-long feelings of intense loyalty, trust and mateship between the men that served there. Dave’s story focuses on his time as a soldier and his return, psychologically exhausted, to a divided nation.

After Vietnam and the freedom of ‘home’, Dave tried to live a normal life, however the horror he’d experienced caught up with him. The pressure was immense. Eventually, something had to give. It wasn’t ever a matter of if, but when, you would crack. The impact of Vietnam on his life has been, and continues to be, immeasurable.

‘Vietnam picked off the vulnerable like a hungry predator.’ Many of those who go to war and survive are scarred forever. My Vietnam War is the biography - a coming of age story - of a self confessed ordinary bloke who has lead anything but an ordinary life.
