Making a book of Favorate Tweets

There used to be a service that took your stared tweets, and make them into a book. I can't find it now and it would be awesome for all the family stories and comments I've saved over the years... [more inside]

iso: specific yoga for kids book

Looking for a very specific book of yoga positions for children - it was simply written and the illustrations were black ink line drawings on white paper, usually of young people and adults doing introductory yoga positions. My mother used the book with my brother and myself regularly in the 1970s, but looking through the various kids' yoga books on Amazon now I'm not finding it. Anyone who grew up in the same era, or who raised kids in the same era, find this familiar?

kids' book in which princess and family move out of castle and have to rent all houses on a street to hold their stuff

I am looking for a chapter book I read as a kid in the 1970s/1980s in which a princess and her family have to move out of their ancestral home and instead rent all the houses on a street to hold all their things that used to be in the castle. It was kind of an adventure/mystery story after that, I think involving something with the family possessions. Anyone know the title of this book please?

Looking for family-focused memoirs

I'm reading (and really enjoying) The Glass Castle, and my wife and are about to have our first kid. What other memoirs or non-fiction books should I read that focus on parenting, raising kids in unorthodox ways, or just plain unique families?

Letting Go of Unheathly Family Relationships

Does anyone know of a book or resource to help someone end their relationship with family? I have a friend who's mother is a mess. She has never been a good mother and she plays guilt trips, lies, fakes illnesses, etc. My friend is not someone who should have unhealthy relationships. I usually say family is THE most important thing in life, but in this case I think she should cut ties. I want to find something that will help her get through the guilt she is feeling for wanting to sever communication.
