"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

On the first day in his new school, the “popular kids” make fun of Charlie’s physical appearance and athletic abilities. His Aunt Kate suggests that things will be better after he makes a friend. Charlie is puzzled when she takes him to the circus. What does Charlie discover? How can this possibly be a solution to his problem?
This book contains seven short chapters whose length is perfect for children who are learning to read content independently. I would recommend it particularly for seven to ten year old readers. The simple black and white drawings enhance interest. Free downloads, video clips, and competitions included in the book will sustain interest and extend reading
Besides being a great picture book, it includes new technology with QR codes (or web links for those of us lower tech) leading to additional online content. The in book illustrations are black and white pencil drawn graphics.
Charlie and his mum live in the country, but now that his dad has moved out, his mum has to work harder and longer hours. She finds an opportunity for a job with better pay and benefits but it means she and Charlie have to move in with Auntie Kate in the big city of London.
A move also means a new school and starting over without any close friends.
Charlie does his best to act brave, but his first day at his new school feels like the worst day of his life!
When he gets home, his mom is still working, so Auntie Kate takes him to the circus.
You know what is at the circus? Scary clowns!
Honestly, this was a fun story and has some great lessons for us at any age.
It talks about life changes and being confident and brave, and how we should treat one another.

It’s nice that the story doesn’t present life as the “perfect” family, given how many variations of family we have these days. I also like the fact that the “bully” isn’t all bad either. I think sometimes we cast a character as only bad and I think very few kids/people actually are.
The story hinges on the important of friendship and believing in oneself. Great message for children.
I received this free in exchange for an honest review.
This book is about a boy called Charlie. Charlie moves to London, with his mum, where he is bullied and gets called names because he has orange hair and is small. But when he goes to the circus with his auntie, something magical happens. He suddenly becomes cool and gets a new best friend. I liked this story and I am glad that Charlie didn’t get bullied anymore. It is an easy book and has nice short chapters.
