A lotus grows in the mud by Goldie Hawn( Book )

29 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 2,490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With her trademark effervescent humor, Goldie tells us about the lessons she's learned and the wisdom she feels she's been given, in the hope of giving something back. Not a Hollywood "tell-all," this book is a very personal look at moments private and powerful, a trip back through a life well lived by a woman well loved. She takes us on a tour of her go-go dancing years in New York in the sixties, her phenomenal success on TV's Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, and then on to the world of Hollywood stardom and such memorable films as the Oscar-winning Cactus Flower, Swing Shift, and Private Benjamin. She speaks of her relationship with her family--her partner, Kurt Russell; her children, Kate Hudson, Oliver Hudson, Wyatt Russell, and her stepson, Boston Russell--her growing faith, her curiosity for that which she doesn't yet know, and her unquenchable thirst for knowledge and understanding.--From publisher description

10 editions published between 2011 and 2019 in English and held by 1,259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Across the country, the revolutionary MindUP program, developed under the auspices of the Hawn Foundation, established by Goldie Hawn, is teaching children vital social and emotional skills. By understanding how their brains work, children discover where their emotions come from and become more self-aware. They learn to appreciate the sensory aspects of their lives and to value the positive effects of mindfulness, compassion, and kindness. This, in turn, empowers them to manage and reduce their own stress--and helps them be happy. Those who have seen the effects of this program have been eager to learn how to implement it in their own homes and use its practices for themselves, too. Here, for the first time, its secrets are being shared with all parents and children.--From publisher description

Haatchi & Little B : the inspiring true story of one boy and his dog by Wendy Holden( Book )

14 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 1,127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book tells the amazing true story of one astonishing little boy and the very special dog who has changed his life forever. On a bitterly cold night in January 2012, Haatchi the dog was hit over the head and abandoned on a railway line in London, England, to be hit by a train. Somehow, the puppy survived the blood loss from his partially severed leg and rear tail and managed to crawl away to safety. Fortunately, Haatchi was rescued, although vets couldn't save his leg and tail. He came to the attention of Colleen Drummond and Will Howkins, who aren't just kind-hearted dog-lovers. They are also the dad and stepmother of Owen (known to his family as Little B for 'little buddy'). Owen, now aged eight, has an extremely rare genetic disorder which causes his muscles to permanently tense. Largely confined to a wheelchair, Owen was withdrawn and anxious and found it difficult to make friends. But when the little boy awoke the morning after Haatchi arrived, he immediately fell in love with the severely disabled rescue animal who would, in turn, rescue him"--
Born survivors : three young mothers and their extraordinary story of courage, defiance, and hope by Wendy Holden( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 972 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the millions of Holocaust victims sent to Auschwitz II-Birkenau in 1944, Priska, Rachel, and Anka each pass through its infamous gates with a secret. Strangers to one another, they are newly pregnant, and facing an uncertain fate without their husbands. Alone, scared, and with so many loved ones already lost to the Nazis, these young women are privately determined to hold on to all they have left: their lives and those of their unborn babies. That the gas chambers ran out of Zyklon B just after the babies were born, before they and their mothers could be exterminated, is just one of several miracles that allowed them all to survive and rebuild their lives after World War II. Born Survivors follows the mothers' incredible journey--first to Auschwitz, where they each came under the murderous scrutiny of Dr. Josef Mengele; then to a German slave-labor camp, where, half-starved and almost worked to death, they struggled to conceal their condition; and, finally, as the Allies closed in, their hellish seventeen-day train journey with thousands of other prisoners to the Mauthausen death camp in Austria. Biographer Wendy Holden details the courage and kindness of strangers, including guards and civilians, which helped save these women and their children. Sixty-five years later, the three "miracle babies" meet for the first time at Mauthausen for the anniversary of the American liberation. United by their remarkable experiences of survival against all odds, they come to consider each other "siblings of the heart." In Born Survivors, Holden brings all three stories together for the first time, to mark their seventieth birthdays and the seventieth anniversary of the ending of the war. A heart-stopping account of how three mothers and their newborns fought to survive the Holocaust, Born Survivors is also a life-affirming celebration of our capacity to care and love amid inconceivable cruelty
