Amanda’s Fall

Reviewed by Lydia Dehning (age 6) for Reader Views Kids (3/20)
Amanda’s Fall: A Story for Children About Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) by Kelly Bouldin Darmofal is the story of a little girl named Amanda who is at school in first grade. Amanda likes to play with her friends outside at recess, they like to pretend like they are horses. One day at recess, Amanda rolls down a hill and hits her head on a rock.

I learned a lot about my head from this book. I like the story and how I learned something from it. This will be a good book for anyone to read, especially little kids.

Amanda can’t see the teacher well, she can’t talk to her well, and she starts to shake. Amanda gets taken to the hospital and her parents come, too. At the hospital, Amanda learns that she had a concussion, which is when your head gets hits really hard and your brain moves around. Amanda will have to be careful as she grows up because her concussion might cause problems for her at school. She will also need to be really careful with her head by wearing a helmet while riding her bike and when playing sports like baseball or t-ball. I hope I never get a concussion, and I’ll protect my head by wearing a helmet while I ride my bike and be careful when I play. I learned a lot about my head from this book. I like the story and how I learned something from it. This will be a good book for anyone to read, especially little kids.

A Note from Mom: Lydia didn’t know anything about concussions or hurting your head. From “Amanda’s Fall,” I think she is able to picture what’s going on easier now than if I were to explain it to her. Coming from an author who has experienced a severe head injury, she presented the information appropriately for her target audience. I also like the extra resources in the back of the book, such as symptoms of a concussion and facts about brain injuries. A well-done book

Join us on an epic journey to India!

K.V. Dominic, one of India's leading contemporary English poets, takes us on a trip to India in this constellation of short stories. His love for his native country is exposed through stories that cover a range of humanistic concerns, including women’s empowerment, the natural environment, government and corruption, the education system, crime, the power of compassion and the question of how much influence we have in our own destinies.

"Sanchita Karma, a collection of stories evocative of India with its characters, is simply sketched in a few sentences while still feeling rounded and real. From the tentative beginnings of friendship, to family problems, running from life to finding fulfilment, pointed character studies and quiet meditations—Dominic’s people are often bereft, put upon and always searching for something. Through them, he speaks volumes--in a short space--about cause and effect in relationships."
--Dr. Patricia Prime, poet, critic, reviewer and editor, New Zealand

"The stories in Sanchita Karma deal with a wide spectrum of themes, including the helplessness and loneliness of the aged, the thirst for love, crime and terrorism, religious intolerance and superstition and corruption and unemployment. Like sips of cold water after a dusty walk in the hot sun, the vivid portrayal of these stark realities is revealed through instances of love, humanism, honesty, duty consciousness, compassion, repentance and reformation."
-- Chandramoni Narayanaswamy, English poet, writer, essayist and translator, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India

"In Sanchita Karma, K.V. Dominic’s potential is testified by a simple yet realistic depiction of various characters drawn from all walks of life. The poet/short story writer portrays characters in such a way that the words emphatically flow from their mouths—and stay in our minds—as if they are time bound and dictums for all ages."
--Dr. Radhamony Sarma, Professor of English (ret.), poet and critic, Chennai, India.
