Children's book donations for PNG

The Christmas and school holiday season is a great time to weed out your pre-loved children's books to donate to the Buk Bilong Pikinini project and help promote literacy in Papua New Guinea

The not-for-profit organization aims to establish children’s libraries and make book donations to re-establish depleted school libraries.

So far they have established 18 children’s libraries in 7 provinces. Two of these libraries provide basic literacy programs designed for children with special needs: one in Port Moresby General Hospital delivering a play-based literacy program for hospitalized children, and another located within the Red Cross Special Education and Resource Centre in Port Moresby which delivers a specialised literacy program for children living with hearing and learning disabilities.

More than 50,000 high quality children’s books, educational toys and craft materials are donated every year across PNG.

They have a shortage of books in all areas, but particularly for young children aged 0-6, including board books, early readers in the 1-15 category, and books with big pictures and big text for teacher librarians to read from. Donated books should be new or "gently-used".

Bring your donations to the Library

Diseases of the breast during pregnancy and lactation / edited by Sadaf Alipour and Ramesh Omranipour. Springer 2020.
Symptoms of the breast in gravid women commonly represent physiological changes, however they may also be related to serious underlying breast disease; this challenging dilemma is aggravated by diagnostic and therapeutic limitations imposed by safety issues regarding the mother and fetus. A comprehensive coverage of all aspects of normal and pathologic breast changes during pregnancy and lactation, their diagnosis and management is provided in the present work. The organized structure of this book begins with gestational changes of the breast, while discussing safety, hazards, and arguments regarding diagnostic approaches. It then goes on by describing various clinical presentations and common and uncommon benign disorders during gravidity. The book then addresses pre-malignant lesions of the breast, opening the dialogue on how to manage these confusing lesions in pregnant and nursing women. It continues toward pregnancy-associated breast cancer, focusing on every facet of the problem, including epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment and complications, anesthetic considerations, prenatal care, and rare malignancies; and comes to an end by arguing main psychological concerns. In the midst of this orderly sequence fertility issues, pregnancy, and breastfeeding in women who have overcome their breast cancer are also discussed. This unique reference has been written by academic experts from different centers and diverse disciplines in a practical format. It is intended to be an ideal resource for every practitioner and specialist who manages complaints of gravid and nursing women or treats breast disorders in women of child bearing age.

Endocrine conditions in pediatrics : a practical clinical pocketbook /edited by Takara Stanley and Madhusmita Misra. Springer Nature 2020.
This book is aimed at primary care providers who care for the pediatric age group (general pediatrician, the PCP working with pediatric patients, and family medicine providers) with the goal of covering the endocrine differential diagnosis of common signs and symptoms of possible endocrine disease as well as appropriate initial laboratory evaluation and interpretation. While multiple pediatric endocrine textbooks exist, most of them are heavy in coverage of physiology and rare diseases, with less discussion of practical steps in evaluation and diagnosis. This book distinguishes itself through a very practical approach. The first section is organized by presenting signs and symptoms, the second section is organized by laboratory interpretation, and the third section provides summaries of common pediatric endocrine disorders. Chapters are concise, providing critical clinical information including clinical pearls, common diagnoses and important points in patient counselling.

Pediatric ultrasound : requisites and applications / edited by Michael Riccabona. 2nd ed. Springer Nature 2020.
This book, now in a revised and updated second edition, systematically covers the use of ultrasound in all organ systems throughout childhood. After discussing the basics, including physics, ultrasound methods, and artefacts, it elucidates decision-making regarding the use of ultrasound by discussing diagnostic flow charts based on recommended imaging algorithms. The main part of the book addresses ultrasound investigations of the various organs. It documents the indications and prerequisites for specific examinations and offers practical tips and tricks. The normal, age-dependent ultrasound findings and typical appearances in different pathologies are presented in detail and illustrated by numerous high-quality images, with a particular emphasis on those findings that differ from the adult sonographic appearances. And finally, dedicated chapters explore point-of-care and emergency ultrasound, interventional ultrasound, and present orienting tables.

Translational research in pediatric urology : basic and clinical/ edited by Luciano Alves Favorito. Springer 2020.
Translational research is of great importance for clinical practice. Therefore, this book provides comprehensive information on an important gap in pediatric urology: the description of basic concepts that allow a better understanding of urinary and genital anomalies. The content encompasses personal experience and research topics developed at Rio de Janeiro State University’s Urogenital Research Unit over the past 25 years. Throughout the chapters, the main aspects of embryology and fetal anatomy as applied to the various congenital malformations that most often affect newborns and children are described. Neural tube defects and Prune Belly Syndrome, two rare but highly relevant conditions that alter the structure of the urinary and genital system, are discussed in detail. In addition, the diagnosis and treatment of genital anomalies are addressed.
